fresh air from the flue

I try to protect my health inside my abode by allowing access to outside air at all times, even in extreme temperatures. When my fireplace is not in use, I keep the flue open anyway, for that purpose. My question is: If the fireplace *is* in use, will the open flu serve the same purpose, or do I need to open a window as well?

Delayed cold sensitivity in teeth? Anyone know what this is?

How can an extremely obese and underconditioned man begin exercising?

Is walking at your normal walking rate, but increasing the distance you walk, sufficient enough to be considered exercise? Can anyone recommend exercises for people who are very underconditioned and extremely obese, but not in poor cardiac health? And, finally, is there a medical professional who is the equivalent of a gym's personal trainer? (More inside.) [more inside]

Hashimoto's disease

I've just been diagnosed as having hypothyroidism (probably Hashimoto's disease, though the secondary bloodwork that would confirm that isn't back yet). I'd like to hear stories/anecdotes about having hypothyroid problems &/or Hashimoto's, especially if you've tried alternative treatments (whether or not they've succeeded). Additionally, I'm looking for resources, online or off, that consider alternative treatments/dietary changes/etc as well as standard Western medical practices. [more inside]

Help my ass stop hurting!

Being woken by nighttime painful erections.

Over the past few months I've been waking up several times during the night with an extremely turgid painful erection that won't go away unless I stand up and walk around for a bit, or raise my legs or squeeze my thigh muscles. When this happens, I don't feel sexually aroused and my penis doesn't feel responsive in any way - it seems to be purely a blood-pressure thing of some sort. [more inside]

Help me help my dog!

My dog (a truly gigantic poodle) got some kind of infection on the pad of one of his front paws. He continuously licks and chews at it and it's now a red, swollen, infected mess and clearly hurts him when he walks. We keep covering it with booties and socks--even tying them around his legs-- but he always manages to tear them off eventually. We really can't afford a vet, so is there anything we can buy (over the counter) or any kind of home remedy that might help it heal/make him stop chomping on it? I know nothing about this kind of thing, as IANAD for people or animals, but I can't imagine there isn't some solution... any help appreciated!
