FROM OUR EXPERTS
Hi there, I've been suffering headaches the last month or so (not bad, just really annoying!) mostly in my left temple and at the back of my head just above my neck. The vision in my left eye is now going all blurry and I still have a slight headache. I've never had my eyes checked, do you think this may be the case? Thanks :) Kayla.
Unexplained headaches should always be investigated - always. To be on the safe side, start by calling your doctor. Then, yes, you should have your eyes checked. Everyone should have their eyes checked periodically.
The reason to start with your doctor is to be sure your symptoms aren't being caused by anything serious that might need immediate treatment. Please don't wait. Call your doctor's office now.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert

Medical experts say that you should get between 7 and 8 hours of sleep, but recent statistics revealed that many people are getting less than 5 to 6 hours. If you are not getting enough sleep, it can have adverse affects on your overall health. For example, it may cause unwanted weight gain, or a constant feeling of sluggishness throughout the day. People use many excuses for not getting to bed at a decent time. “I have to clean the house, and nighttime is the only time I can get everything done;” or “I love watching late night television.” No matter what excuse you are using, your lack of a good night’s sleep can be a problem. Some people, however, bring their stress problems into the bedroom, and that can have disastrous results. Not only will stress affect your sex life, it will also affect your ability to get the rest you need. No matter what has caused stre...
