Can you please tell me why my temples throb all the time,even without headache? jbw.
No, we really can't tell you why your temples throb. That requires diagnosis, which can only be done in person following a review of your history and a full examination. Sometimes, high blood pressure can cause a sensation of throbbing at the temples, but you really need to see your doctor about this .
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert

You may know Lisa from her regular column in O Magazine where she has developed a keen eye and descriptive style that provides a unique take on the world. In one of ...
Lately, I’ve found that my hips have stiffened up. According to my massage therapist, part of the reason is due to lower back issues that I’ve been facing. It turns out that my lower back has recruited my hip muscles into a revolt that at times can be uncomfortable and at times can be downright painful.
And I’m not alone because, unfortunately, stiff hips can be part of aging for women. In her book, “Fit and Fabulous After 40,” Denise Austin notes that women’s hips differ from men’s. “Our hip socket is called a Q socket, and unlike men, the line from knee to hip isn’t straight; our femurs, or upper leg bones, fit into the hip socket at an angle,” she writes. “For this reason, women tend to experience more hip problems are they grow older.” She notes that issues with your hips can impact your ability to walk and also can lead to back pain and other injuries. Plus, I want to do everything I can to avoid getting arth...
