    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- No matter what the question, no one can stump Dr. T. Glenn Pait with UAMS. He's cracking open up his medical mailbag to answer your questions.

    These are the questions he covered:

    -I coach a soccer club. After warms-up, we rest before playing. A parent told me this is not a good idea. What do you think?

    -My husband is taking Lipitor. He loves citrus fruit. My mother-in-law said she heard that people on Lipitor should not eat oranges and grapefruit. Should he stop eating his beloved fruits?

    -I understand fish is good for you but I don't like fish. Can you get the same amount of Omega 3 fatty acids from pills that you get from fish?
    -My girlfriend and I were wondering about samples at the makeup counter. Can you pick up any germs from the makeup counters?
    -I purchased an iPad and rely upon it throughout the day. Since I started using the iPad I've developed neck and shoulder pain. Any suggestions?

    -I'm a young woman who's trying to grow my hair longer, but the growth of my hair, compared to others, is very slow. Is there something I can do to help my hair grow out?
