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

Second on the list was being laid off from that position in April 2005, which gave me the time, but also increased my stress level. The third factor was taking on caregiving for my mom as she battled Alzheimer’s from 2005-2007. The fourth factor was injury. A really painful case of plantar fasciitis that ...
Trust me, it’s really easy to slow down – or even to stop – as you reach middle age. First of all, there are those darn aches and pains that suddenly seem to come out of nowhere. You suddenly find your lower back tightens up or you start having a case of plantar fasciitis that causes you to limp when you get out of bed in the morning. Sitting seems like a good idea most of the time, especially it’s become a habit thanks to working on the computer and watching television. But don’t! You heard me right. That’s because several recent studies highlight the importance of physical activity in being able to age in a healthy way.
The first study out of Sweden found that healthy living – which includes consuming a healthy diet, regular physical exercise and continuing healthy habits, such as not smoking – can increase a woman’s life span by five years. This study, which was published on BMJ, involved 1,810 women and men over an 18-year peri...
