Can pain in the jaw or teeth be an indication of a heart attack? How do I tell if a pain in my arm or shoulder is due to a heart condition?
These questions are quite common and frequently asked, and not always easily or correctly answered in magazines and journals. In fact, pain caused by an inadequate supply of oxygen to the heart can occur in many different forms. Although, once in a while, the location and description of the discomfort may be odd, but, fortunately, most of the time it is similar. The majority of the time patients describe a tightness, heaviness or constriction in the mid-chest or upper abdomen that appears to also be present in one or the other shoulder. The discomfort may also be noted in the upper biceps, elbow and wrist (on either side) and on occasion may feel like it is “going through” to the back. Heart pain can also be noted in the jaw and teeth. It is more common for heart-related discomfort to affect the lower jaw than the upper jaw. Occ...
Definition Tennis elbow is inflammation, soreness, or pain on the outside (lateral) side of the upper arm near the elbow. There may be a partial tear of the tendon fibers, which connect muscle to bone. The tear may be at or near where these fibers begin, on the outside of the elbow. Alternative Names Epitrochlear bursitis; Lateral epicondylitis; Epicondylitis - lateral Causes, incidence, and risk factors The part of the muscle that attaches to a bone is called a tendon. Muscles in your forearm attach to the bone on the outside of your elbow. When you use these muscles over and over again, small tears develop in the tendon.

Backhand is the most common stroke to cause symptoms. However, any activity that involves repetitive twisting of the wrist (like using a screwdriver) can lead to this condition....
Welcome back to the Hall of Shame. By now you have learned that several types of shoes deserve to be in the Hall of Shame because they cause pain. Today's inductees into the Hall of Shame are purses and handbags that cause pain. Some are big and some are small. Some cause pain for no reason of their own. Take a look at your purse because maybe it is causing you to experience pain.
Somewhere in this world there must be a sign that says: "Woman with the biggest bag wins!" Honestly, some of these handbags really qualify as carry-on luggage or tote bags. Why do women need to tote around so much stuff? Sometimes I weigh purses in my clinic because I know the heavy ones cause so much back and neck pain . And I have actually told some women to put their purse on a diet. In these heavy lifters you will find brushes, makeup, notepads, mirrors, energy bars, water bottles, pacifiers, phones, and money (well, maybe just plastic). Have you weighed your purse lately?
And how many of yo...
