Headway Against HeadachesMigraine headaches are characterized by horrible pain, frequently associated
with light and sound sensitivity and nausea, and are often preceded by some
trigger which might be food or alcohol, medication, stress, or even a smell.
Migraine headaches are a horrible affliction.Tennis Elbow Pain AnyoneWhether you are competing against yourself or on a team, competitive athletes
want the ability to "give it all you've got." You want to play up
to your natural talent; and frustration occurs when injury disables you, especially
one that keeps coming back.
Tennis Elbow is just such an injury. Tennis Elbow ("elbow tendonitis"
or "epicondylitis") is inflammation where a tendon attaches one of the forearm
muscles to the bone of the upper arm. Symptoms of Tennis Elbow include inflammation,
elbow pain and wrist weakness. Tennis Elbow is diagnosed in players of all racquet
sports and in carpenters, electricians, skiers, bowlers and golfers.ASTHMA Oh God, Help Me Breathe!!Asthma may best be described as a frantic struggle to breathe. If you've ever
seen anyone desperately fighting for breath during an asthma attack, you know
how serious and frightening it really is.Car Accident, Neck & Back Pain Years LaterWith current legislation mandating the use of seat belts, an increased number
of neck and back injuries have been reported when seat belts are used. While
these injuries may be less significant than in unrestricted accidents, health
care providers must address these potentially lifelong problems and not dismiss
them as merely "Whiplash". Many cases of tension headache and Cervical Migraine
may be the result of a neck injury that may have been forgotten or simply dismissed
as trivial by the patient-according to a study published in Spine. In the article,
Dr. MacNab reviewed 266 cases and found at least 45% continued to have
symptoms 2 years following the settlement of court actions. Most people
that are involved in "minor" rear-end collisions do not realize the potential
for injury to the spine. If pain does not immediately ensue, the incident
may be forgotten.
