When I was first diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis , I really had no idea of the long term affects of this disease . In the beginning, I was overwhelmed with the pain and changes in my body. All I could think about each day was the doctors' visits and the endless amounts of medication . I didn't know anyone else who had RA who I could ask questions. I felt alone and scared. When I read through the message boards on the RA Central website, I feel the frustration of those who have been recently diagnosed . I know the fear of having so many unanswered questions. Now, 10 years into my RA journey, I still have questions but I have a lot more answers! My RA came on fast and furious. I was a pretty healthy person until this disease came along. RA swept me off my feet and I am still running! I'm sure that's how most of you who have been recently diagnosed feel. Well, let me tell you from experience, it's a race worth running right from the start. The sooner ...
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.

Take a look at Anatomy of a Migraine for more information on the possible phases of a Migraine attack and the potential symptoms.
That said, what you describe could be any number of issues. There's simply no way for anyone to explain why this is happening...
I never much cared for anatomy class. Dead bodies, the cold, and the smell were just not the way I liked to spend an afternoon. Every first year medical student spends hours in the anatomy room because learning the parts is important, but even more important is knowing what those parts do and how they work—functional anatomy. Thankfully, studying functional anatomy requires warm, live people who don’t usually smell. Let’s learn some parts without the smell because if you understand the parts, then you will understand the treatment. Getting down to the framework of your body is the skeleton which holds you upright, otherwise you would be a blob of gooey mush. As part of the skeleton, the spine is your backbone that bridges the span between your head and your butt. Because it is a bridge, the spine has passive, stationary structures (bones, ligaments, and discs) which don’t “do” anything except provide support for the whole body. However, these parts o...
