Anyone who's ever had an asthma attack knows about the chest tightness and why it occurs. Yet what about the chest soreness that occurs the next day? Why does asthma causes chest pain?
The interesting thing to note here is there are no pain receptors in your lungs!!! The reason asthma causes pain is because asthma causes you to breathe the wrong way.
Confused? Allow me to explain with a pithy lesson on how we breathe. (To learn why we breathe click here )
Breathing is the process of moving air into and out of the lungs. Breathing is one of the few bodily functions that can be done either consciously (you control it) or unconsciously (without thinking of it). Unconscious breathing : Most of the time you don't think about breathing, yet you continue to do it. This is an important safety net for life, because if we had to think about breathing 24-7 we'd accomplish little and most life would cease to exist. Air goes into your...
A recent task force has determined that women are at higher risk for developing neck pain than men. What accounts for this gender difference? A number of factors contribute to neck pain including coping skills, personalities, work environments and physical activities. But, as a patient eloquently stated while lifting her shirt, "What about these?" Are breasts a major contributor to the higher incidence of neck pain in women? In 1996, our judicial system examined the evidence and determined (Bancroft v Tecumseh Products) that breast reduction surgery was indeed medically necessary to relieve headache , neck pain and shoulder pain. This verdict establishes the cause and effect relationship between breasts and neck pain.
A closer examination into the breast risk factor can illuminate a multitude of reasons why size A, B, C, D, or DD really matters to the spine. Let's think in terms of triple "B's".
B reasts :
Are your breasts big, small, not at all (absent) or just righ...
Depression is such a pain-in-the-behind disease. I take my medication faithfully every day, but there are still times when I go through a rough patch. Sometimes, I feel myself letting stressful things that are going on in my life get to me far more than they should. Then I end up feeling guilty for snapping at my husband. It's not his fault, so why do I take it out on him? It's been that way for the last couple of weeks. My desktop computer wasn't acting right, and since I work via the Internet, that can put me in a panic. My husband and I are well capable of fixing such things -- we needed to install a new hard drive -- but I found myself extremely short on patience. Oh, so patience isn't necessarily my strong suit in the first place, but this was bordering on out of control. We made it through all of that though -- in one piece and our marriage intact. What good timing it was that we had planned a weekend trip to visit our older son and his family. Our g...
