Many would argue that back pain is inevitable and for some it becomes a sudden reality. Bending over to pick up a piece of paper, moving furniture, or reaching for something in the car's back seat; one of these scenarios may sound familiar to you. At home or at work, you need to know what to do when a sudden attack of back pain occurs. Fortunately, most back pain will get better naturally. But in order to improve your chances of recovery and to save yourself a trip to your doctor's office, you need to learn some first aid for back pain.
Those of you familiar with life-saving first aid remember the ABC's (Airway, Breathing, and Circulation). Let's apply the ABC's to your back; "A" for arrest the offending activity, "B" for balance the pressure, "C" for control the inflammation. With the ABC's for sudden back pain, you can quickly recover from a sudden back pain attack.
Let's go back to the scenarios: bending, lifting, and twisting (the BLT's). All of these activiti...
My problem is I have a sharp left back headache until now for almost 2 weeks. My first checked up was, they gave me Amoxcicillin 500mg antibiotic and Diclofenac 50mg. After 5 days I went again for a doctor .I said that the effect is nothing on me. After I drink the medicine it will be gone then after 10hours it will come again, because its 3x a day to drink. Then the Doctor change my medicine. Now he gave me MYLAN-CLARITHROMYCIN 500mg for twice a day. On the First day I drink the medicine and the side effect is diarrhea. I expected that already because the doctor told me the effect. Now its my 2nd day when i woke up I felt again the sharpness on the left back head ache. About an hour then it will be gone. I hope you can help me on this matter. I'm so bothered on it. This is the first time ive experienced. And if there are things to avoid in eating or anything I hope you can answer my question. Looking forward on it. Thank you very much! More power! Roland. &...
During pre-op testing for my father’s back surgery, the EKG showed a “bundle.” What exactly is a bundle and what does it mean for his health?
The heart's electrical activity normally starts in the heart's natural pacemaker (called the sinoatrial node), which is situated on the upper right chamber of the heart (atrium). From there the electrical impulse travels to the left upper chamber (atrium) and into the atrioventricular (AV) node. Electrical impulses travel through certain cells that are specially designed for the purpose of carrying those impulses. They carry them faster than regular heart muscle cells and are located near one another. When there are many such cells together in a bunch we call this grouping a node. From the AV node the electrical impulse travels down the bundle of His and divides into the right and left bundle branches. When the electrical impulse carrying cells are arranged in a line to carry many impulses together we call this a bundle, if it is ...
