Kebas ketika bangun tidur

Mengapakah tangan terutamanya jari dan tapak tangan saya sering berasa berdenyut-denyut dan kebas ketika bangun tidur setiap pagi? Biasanya, orang lain mengalami rasa kebas kerana tersalah posisi ketika tidur tetapi rasa kebas akan hilang selepas 5 minit.  Namun rasa kebas yang saya alami hanya hilang setelah saya bersarapan (sekurang-kurangnya minum air kosong atau makan sedikit). 
Helo, Heidi.
Jari dan tapak tangan yang kebas adalah pertanda berlakunya gangguan, tekanan atau kepitan terhadap saraf periferi bahagian berkenaan. Biasanya ia memang disebabkan oleh posisi tubuh ketika tidur yang menekan saraf periferi pada tangan. Namun, gangguan terhadap saraf periferi  pada tangan dan jari juga sering berlaku akibat diabetes mellitus, radang sendi, minum alkohol berlebihan, kekurangan vitamin B12, dan apabila saraf periferi yang khusus tersepit, seperti sindrom terowong karpus.
Tekanan terhadap saraf periferi yang berlaku pada orang normal boleh menyebabkan gejala kekebasan (parestesia) yang dapat hilang dengan sendirinya. Secara perubatan, tidak ada tempoh tertentu bagi kekebasan itu menghilang. Jika rasa kebas dapat hilang dengan sendirinya, maka tiada apa yang perlu dikhuatiri lagi.
Sebaliknya jika rasa kebas hilang pada waktu pagi dan kembali semula selepas anda melakukan aktiviti tertentu misalnya, maka hal ini harus diberi perhatian dan dicari puncanya. Apabila keadaan ini berlaku, pergilah berjumpa doktor untuk menjalani pemeriksaan yang lengkap.
Anda dinasihatkan agar berjumpa doktor bagi menjalani pemeriksaan menyeluruh secara berkala bagi mengenal pasti kemungkinan wujudnya diabetes mellitus, radang sendi atau keadaan lain yang boleh mengakibatkan gejala yang anda alami.  Pengambilan alkohol juga harus dielakkan. Di samping itu, anda harus mengambil vitamin tambahan yang mengandungi vitamin B, terutamanya vitamin B12 setiap hari. 
Amalan ini dapat membantu memperbaiki kesihatan dan fungsi saraf periferi anda.
Semoga membantu. Terima kasih.

Are your breasts normal?

10 solutions to your boob issues

(Photo by: Getty Images)

Ever feel like your breasts have a mind of their own? Hold on to your bra straps-we uncover what's normal and what's not.

If you're like most chicks, you have a love/hate relationship with your rack. The hate part comes in when your boobs act all wacko - for example, they itch at inconvenient times or your headlights go on high alert. These situations cause you embarrassment or, worse, to stress about their health. If that assessment describes you, you're not alone. When Cosmo asked readers if they had any breast issues they needed help solving, we were flooded with responses. Check out the top distressing set situations we uncovered, plus the A, B, C, and DDs of how to deal.

"It's obvious through my clothes that my breasts are two different sizes."
No one has a perfectly matching pair, but a small number of women develop visibly unbalanced breasts, says ob-gyn Christiane Northrup, author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom. Correct it by buying bras that fit the larger boob, then insert a foam or silicone-gel pad into the smaller cup. A more permanent solution (and one that comes with a huge price tag and possible scarring) is plastic surgery. "You can get the larger breast reduced, put an implant in the smaller one, or do a combo of the two," says surgeon Andrew Da Lio, associate professor of plastic surgery at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

"Sometimes my chest gets incredibly itchy, and I have to scratch - even in public."
First, slather your set with body lotion after you shower. This will keep your skin moisturized, which reduces dryness-induced itching. Next, look for moisture-wicking fabric and breathable microfibers, which are less irritating. Itching plus redness can be a sign of a skin allergy. If you notice this, ease the discomfort with a cortisone cream, and then switch detergent and soap brands to see if that makes a difference. Should you detect a patch of red, scaly skin, you may have a skin yeast infection. Apply an OTC antifungal cream to kill the yeast. But if a scaly sore appears on your nipple and doesn't heal, visit your MD. It can indicate a very rare form of breast cancer.

"My boobs are really saggy and squishy."
With so many chicks sporting gravity-defying bras and up-to-their-chin implants, it's easy to forget that breasts are supposed to sag and feel squishy. But if yours are especially floppy, it probably means that you have a lot more fat in your breasts than glandular tissue, which helps maintain firmness. Another cause: The ligaments that support your set may have become stretched out…kind of like old underwear. Other droop-inducers include breast-feeding and weight loss. And jogging without proper support also may result in sag (not to mention a lot of pain). Since sag is normal, not much can stave it off. Wearing a bra made with adjustable straps and (if you're at least a B cup) underwire will take excess weight off the ligaments. When you work out, put on a sports bra with molded cups to prevent bounce, says Susan Nethero, author of Bra Talk and founder of Intimacy lingerie stores. A better solution: Focus not on how saggy your breasts look but how sexy they make you feel. Wear ultrahot push-up bras, and in bed, enjoy sex positions that let your man stimulate your twins but don't leave them so visually exposed, such as doggie-style or spooning.

"My breasts are shaped funny, like cones."
As with faces and bodies, breasts come in a ton of different shapes, and there's nada you can do to change them permanently. But you can alter their appearance by investing in the right bra. "A slightly padded contour bra that reshapes the breasts by pushing them up or creating cleavage can mask whatever shape issue you're uncomfortable with," says Nethero. For conical boobs, try on bra styles that come with molded cups, which will make your twins look more spherical.

"I worry that my areolae are too big and dark."
Areolae are the bull's-eye-like darker patches of skin that surround your nipples. Just like breast size and shape, their appearance varies a lot. They can be as small as a quarter or as wide as a drink coaster. Some are pink, some red, some brown, and some almost black. "The darker your skin tone, the darker your areolae will be," says Dr. Greene. Pregnancy hormones also turn them dark, and they may stay that way after the birth. If you're self-conscious about their size, there's a type of surgery - areola reduction - that can make them smaller, but not without such side effects as scarring and possible problems breast-feeding. But instead of adjusting your areolae, you may want to adjust your attitude. Truth is, most men find areolae of any shape and size to be a turn-on.

"My breasts feel so lumpy that I cringe when they're touched."
All boobs are a bit lumpy. It's more pronounced during your preperiod week, especially if you have fibrocystic breast disease, a condition triggered by hormone changes that causes your breasts to swell, get tender, and ache, says Miriam Greene, MD, clinical assistant professor of ob-gyn at NYU School of Medicine. Caffeine makes you retain fluid, so cutting back before your period may help reduce swelling. Watch your salt intake too: Sodium makes you hold in water. But if you detect a lump in a fixed spot that doesn't change with your cycle, see your gyno. It's rare, but it may signal breast cancer.

"I hate looking at my breasts - I have stretch marks."
Stretch marks are thin red or whitish streaks that often appear when the skin on your twins has been stretched by a growth spurt, such as during puberty and pregnancy or after gaining weight. Most women get them, but how many you develop depends on your skin's elasticity and genetics. The bad news: They never go away, though studies say using a Retin-A cream daily for a few months will help reduce the redness of new marks. Luckily, over the years, they will fade closer to your normal pigment. And don't get too worked up about your guy noticing them; men aren't exactly known for being detail-oriented. When you take off your top, his eyes most likely widen at the big-picture sight of your rack…not the pencil-thin lines etched on the skin.

Wardrobe Malfunctions!
Boobs and clothes don't always coexist well. Here, how to help them get along better.

You fall out of low-cut tops.
Either the cups are too shallow to contain your girls or the band isn't tight enough and, therefore, rides up your back, causing the cups to dip and your breasts to fly free. A pro at a lingerie shop can fit you and suggest styles.

Your nipples stand at attention.
Hide them (if you wish) inside a light contour bra, which has thinly lined cups to cover up nipple erections. Or try silicone covers that adhere to your peaks and keep headlights under wraps.

Your breasts pop the buttons on your blouse.
Your boobs may be proportionally bigger than your torso, so tops that fit your body don't fit your breasts. If that's the case, button-down shirts are not your best pick. If you must wear them, apply double-sided sticky tape from the inside.

Baik pulih vagina

Alat V2LR diyakini berkesan untuk memperbaiki fungsi alat sulit wanita.
FAKTOR usia bukan sahaja menyebabkan kecantikan seseorang wanita itu mula pudar, malah, mengakibatkan perubahan kepada fungsi dan struktur organ di tubuh termasuk kepada vagina.
Hilangnya kebolehan dan kelembapan tisu-tisu pada alat sulit menyebabkan pengurangan minyak pelincir di vagina meningkatkan rasa ketidakselesaan, kegatalan, kekeringan, rasa berat dan kesakitan ketika melakukan persetubuhan.
Ini berikutan, keadaan vagina yang berkurangan dari segi kolagen serat, kurangnya kebolehan untuk menganjal dan kekurangan mukosa menjadikan vaskular semakin sempit dan tidak memberikan kemutan dengan sempurna terutamanya bagi wanita yang sudah mengalami menopaus.
Lazimnya, golongan wanita hanya memberatkan mengenai faktor kecantikan luaran dengan mengunjungi pakar-pakar kecantikan namun keberatan untuk mengunjungi doktor untuk mendapatkan nasihat apabila ada yang didapati tidak kena dengan alat sulit mereka.

Jangan pandang remeh sakit tonsil

MENGALAMI sakit tekak ketika demam merupakan satu senario biasa yang sering dihidapi orang dewasa mahupun kanak-kanak.
Keadaan ini sudah pasti memberi ketidakselesaan kerana selain berasa sakit di bahagian tekak, pesakit juga akan mengalami masalah untuk menelan.
Lazimnya, jika masalah ini berlaku adalah berkaitan masalah tonsil membengkak dan selalunya dipanggil tonsilitis kerana disebabkan jangkitan kuman.
Bagaimanapun menurut Pakar Perunding Telinga, Hidung, Tekak dan Surgeri Kepala dan Leher, Kelana Jaya Medical Centre, Dr. Samril Bokari, tonsilitis di kalangan kanak-kanak boleh membahayakan nyawa.
Ini kerana jelas beliau, apabila sampai tahap kritikal masalah itu boleh mengganggu sistem pernafasan selain membawa jangkitan ke organ dalaman lain seperti jantung dan buah pinggang.

10 reasons why you can't sleep at night

It may not actually be that late-night cappuccino that's keeping you up. Read on for 10 surprising things that cause insomnia…that you have to ditch now.

1. Total Silence
When it's too quiet, you're more easily awakened by a random sound, like your guy getting up to go to the bath­room or a car outside. Get a white­noise machine or turn on a fan, both of which drown out light noise, says sleep expert Michael Breus, PhD, author of The Sleep Doctor's Diet Plan.

2. The Wrong Blinds or Curtains
If your window coverings are too short or sheer, slivers of light may sneak their way into your bedroom and thwart the production of melatonin, a hormone crucial to nodding off, says William C. Kohler, MD, medical director of the Florida Sleep Institute, in Spring Hill, Florida. Replace them with blinds, curtains, or shades that truly fit, preferably the kind labeled "blackout," which use heavier fabric or material (one to look for: nonwoven polyester).

3. Your Furry Bedtime Buddy
Even if you don't normally have pet allergies, the dander shed from animal skin and hair collects on your bedding and can irritate your nasal passageways, making you sniffle or sneeze and forcing your body awake. It doesn't help either that pets tend to move around a lot at night, says Dr. Kohler. We know you love the cuddle monster, but get him a cushy bed of his own in another room.

4. Your Alarm Clock
It's tempting to check what time it is when you're trying to score some shut­eye. And once you do the math and realize how few hours you have until morning, it causes anxiety, making it even harder to relax and doze off. Simple fix: Turn your clock away from you so you can't see what time it is. Even more important: Stay away from digital clocks, warns Dr. Kohler. Some screens may emit light that suppresses melatonin production and leaves you tossing and turning.

5. A Gripping TV Show
If you must watch something in bed, stick to mellow shows and catch up on The Walking Dead another time. Breus says viewing something adrenaline-pumping, even sports or the news, within 30 minutes of bedtime wires your brain so it's harder to doze off.

6. The Temperature
"If you're too hot or too cold, your body will alert you by waking up," says Breus. The ideal room temp for optimum sleep is 65 to 75 degrees fahrenheit (or 18 to 23 degrees celsius), depending on your personal preference. Opt for cotton sheets and blankets-the material lets air circulate and helps maintain a comfy temperature under the covers. If your body temp tends to rise a lot when you're sleeping, Breus advises getting moisture-wicking sheets and pajamas that dry up sweat to keep you cool all night long.

7. The Color of Your Walls
You may love your hot orange or electric blue walls, but hues like these aren't sleep-friendly. "Bold colors are meant to jolt and inspire you, so if you surround yourself with red, orange, or certain blue hues, you'll have a harder time winding down," says Breus. Paint your bedroom walls a subdued, muted color, like an earth tone, which naturally relaxes your system.

8. The Glow From Your Laptop or Tablet
Having a backlit screen just inches from your eyes inhibits the production of melatonin, keeping you alert, explains Breus. Shut down your laptop or e-reader at least an hour before hitting the sheets. If you can't resist knocking off a few chapters or pages before crashing, use a Kindle, which isn't backlit, or-here's an idea-an actual book or magazine (illuminated by a soft night-light), suggests Breus.

9. Your Cell
The backlit screen and digital clock aren't the only features of your smartphone that work against you. Just the anticipation that you may get a call or text can keep you on edge and unable to switch off your brain, says Dr. Kohler. We know it's hard to cut the cord, but consider turning off your smartphone just before bedtime.

10. Clutter
"Lots of physical stuff scattered around subconsciously reminds you of things that are weighing on your mind, like tasks you've put off and nagging anxieties," says Breus. That can raise your heart rate and increase stress-hormone levels, preventing you from sacking out. You don't have to be at Hoarders level to be affected-that pile of laundry, those boxes from your last shopping trip, and stacks of magazines can all prevent you from getting the sleep you need.

Top 10 detox foods

Lemon and ginger are two of the top detox foodsLemon and ginger are two of the top detox foods


Lemons are a staple of many detox diets, and there is good reason for this. Firstly, lemons are packed with antioxidant vitamin C, which is great for the skin and for fighting disease-forming free-radicals. Furthermore, the citrus fruit has an alkaline effect on the body, meaning that it can help restore the body's pH balance, benefitting the immune system. Try starting your day with hot water and a slice of lemon to help flush out toxins and cleanse your system.


If too much fatty food or alcohol has caused problems for your digestive system, it may be worthwhile adding some ginger to your diet. Ginger is not only great for reducing feelings of nausea, but it can help improve digestion, beat bloating and reduce gas. In addition to this, ginger is high in antioxidants and is good for boosting the immune system. To give your digestion a helping hand, try sipping on ginger tea or adding some freshly grated ginger to a fruit or vegetable juice.


Garlic has long been known for its heart benefits, however the pungent food is also good at detoxifying the body. Garlic is not only antiviral, antibacterial and antibiotic, but it contains a chemical called allicin which promotes the production of white blood cells and helps fight against toxins. Garlic is best eaten raw, so add some crushed garlic to a salad dressing to boost its flavour and your health at the same time.


If you have recently been overindulging in fatty foods and alcohol, adding some steamed globe artichoke leaves to your meals is a great way to help get your body back on track. Globe artichokes are packed with antioxidants and fibre and can also help the body digest fatty foods. On top of this, globe artichoke is renowned for its ability to stimulate and improve the functions of the liver - the body's main toxin-fighting tool.


For those needing a quick health-boosting shot of nutrients, you can't do much better than beetroot. Packed with magnesium, iron, and vitamin C, the vegetable has recently been hailed as a superfood due to its many reported health benefits. Not only is beetroot great for skin, hair and cholesterol levels, but it can also help support liver detoxification, making it an ultimate detox food. To enjoy its benefits, try adding raw beetroot to salads or sipping on some beetroot juice.

Green tea

While it's not technically a food, no detox plan would be complete without regular consumption of essential liquids. Fluids are essential for keeping our organs healthy and helping to flush toxins from the body, and drinking green tea is a great way of boosting your intake. Green tea is not only a good weight-loss drink, but it is extremely high in antioxidants. Research has also suggested that drinking green tea can protect the liver from diseases including fatty liver disease.


Many celebs have resorted to the cabbage soup diet to help lose weight and get in shape quickly before a big event, however cabbage is not only good for weight loss - it is also an excellent detoxifying food. Like most cruciferous vegetables (including broccoli and sprouts), cabbage contains a chemical called sulforaphane, which helps the body fight against toxins. Cabbage also supplies the body with glutathione; an antioxidant that helps improve the detoxifying function of the liver.

Fresh fruit

Fresh fruits are high in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fibre= and are also low in calories, making them an important part of a detox diet. If you're after brighter eyes and skin, shinier hair and improved digestion, try boosting your intake of fruit and eating from a wide variety of different kinds. The good news is fruit is easy to add to your diet, so try starting your day with a fresh fruit salad or smoothie and snacking on pieces of fruit throughout the day.

Brown rice

If you want to cleanse your system and boost your health, it is a good idea to cut down on processed foods. Instead, try supplementing your diet with healthier whole grains such as brown rice, which is rich in many key detoxifying nutrients including B vitamins, magnesium, manganese and phosphorous.  Brown rice is also high in fibre, which is good for cleansing the colon, and rich in selenium, which can help to protect the liver as well as improving the complexion.


Like most green herbs and vegetables, watercress is an excellent health-booster and detox food. Firstly, watercress leaves are packed with many vital detoxifying nutrients, including several B vitamins, zinc, potassium, vitamin E and vitamin C. Secondly, watercress has natural diuretic properties, which can help to flush toxins out the body. To reap the benefits of this nutritious food, try adding a handful of watercress to salads, soups and sandwiches.
