For the past 3 months i have been getting weird sensations in my head. Like my head is freezing. Also i get sharp stabbing pains on both sides of my head and at the back of my head.

They also cause longer recovery time and costs more in medical costs due to extra doctor visits and treatments. Between one and 23 percent of people who have total knee replacements, or arthroplasties , end up with deep infections. For people who have revision surgeries, the rate is even higher, up to 6 percent higher and these infections even more difficult to treat. The authors of this article wanted to evaluate the effectiveness of cement that was impregnated with the antibiotic vancomycin to correct the arthroplasty to see if it would prevent these infections from occurring in the first place. Researchers looked at 179 patients who had 183 revision total knee arthroplasties between them. The majority of the patients had osteoarthritis of the knee, which made the original replacements necessary. All revisions were the first time they were done. The patients were divided into two groups: Group 1 w...
