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

Surgery isn't always the best answer for knee pain, even when X-rays show an alignment problem. The author reviews results of nonsurgical treatment reported by other studies. He does the same with surgical managem...
Knee pain is the most common problem facing people who run more than 10 miles per week. Most of these problems happen in the anterior (front) part of the knee, around and under the kneecap. Each year, up to 65% of all distance runners will have to stop running or seek medical care due to anterior knee pain. Since there are about 32 million regular distance runners in North America, that translates to roughly 21 million people. Knowing which runners are at risk for knee pain is the first step toward prevention. To help with this, the authors recruited runners at local races and in running magazines. Two groups were formed. Seventy non-injured runners were selected for the control group, and 99 injured runners were selected for the injury group. All the runners completed detailed questionnaires about their running experience, training routines, running terrain, shoes, and injury history. Researchers used medical and video technology to measure each runner's legs, feet, strength, stride, ...
