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.
Two things you said might indicate Migraine:
the pain being on one side and
the pain worsening when you bend down.
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...
Does computer use cause neck osteoarthritis?
A chief executive of a major television company once said to me that one of the problems the anchors on his news shows had was thinking that they had to adjust their movements and actions to the cameras. "The equipment should accommodate the person, not the other way around. I can have the producer move a camera. The person being filmed shouldn't have to move or adjust him or herself. If they tell us what they need, we can adjust the camera to them."
I don't think this executive knew how right he was. All too often, we flex our necks and contort our bodies in unnatural ways in order to use our technology. In this day, we shouldn't be uncomfortable using our technology. We should be adjusting our computers and phones so that we don't have to flex our necks unnaturally; bend our wrists, and slump in our seats. Our chairs should support our backs. Our computers should allow us to sit up straight, not flex our necks, and not strai...
I had a pretty significant setback last week brought about by my pillows. Yes that’s right, I did say my pillows are to blame. I have far too many pillows on my bed. I like having them there because I like to prop up while watching movies at night before bed. Problem is, when I fall asleep I tend to turn onto my stomach, which means that my head is jacked up at a nasty angle which is where it stays all night, propped up from the wrong direction by all those crazy pillows. So the other morning, I woke up to a terrible pain in my neck and upper back. I could barely turn my head without a searing bolt of lightning shooting down my body. I knew I was going to have to just wait this thing out, and that meant no gym time. Sigh! I was so ready to start working hard again. I’d been out off and on because of my ankle, which was finally feeling good. I was so bummed. I kept myself moving all week as much as I could. I walked my dogs twice a day when the weather was agreeable, and di...
