FROM OUR EXPERTS
Hi good day sir/mam, I've been experiencing this pain a while now. My jaw and head hurts but only On the left side. For instance if I bend down with my head facing downwards and raise back up it pains a lot for a minute or two then slightly easier to bear with. My mother suffers with high blood pressure but there isn't any other sicknesses that I know of in the family. So can you provide me with an explanation on why this is happening to me please, i'll be very thankful. Have a blessed day! Aaron.

Not only pacing yourself, but also practicing good body mechanics is an important way to get things done without causing a pain flare-up. Bending the knees, moving the feet, and minimizing the reaching can greatly assist your spine especially when using tools like the shovels, rakes and vacuums. ...
