Sex Headaches – Orgasmic Cephalalgia

orgasmic cephalagiaWhoever would have thought that the some men might shy away from having intimate relations because of the intense headache pain they experience as they are about to climax. This is a very real problem and although not common it can be a big issue for men in serious relationships. How do you tell your girlfriend or wife that although you love her deeply you cannot make love with her because it hurts your head too much?

Many women will assume it’s a line being used to avoid having sex and that their relationship might be in serious danger. But instead what they must do is accompany their man to his health care provider so that this odd phenomenon can be better explained to them.

Causes of Disc Herniation

Spinal discs are soft, fluid-filled pads which envelop the spinal cord, serving as shock absorbers in between the hard, bony vertebrae. A disc herniation is a protrusion of the disk substance, due to swelling, or loss of fluid inside the disc. Typically it bulges through the minor openings in the vertebrae where nerves go into the spinal column, and this bulge puts pressure on nerves causing pain. Most commonly, disk herniation occurs in the lower back, but also often in the lower neck.

Causes of disc herniation are either disc degeneration or injury. Disc degeneration involves wear and tear on the disc over time. Visualize the disc as a rubber inner tube filled with water. When the fluid inside leaks out, the tire deflates, is compressed by the weight of the spinal column, and bulges out around the perimeter.

Sleep with a Snorer?

How many times have you complained to a friend about the incessant snoring of your partner? You’ve talked about how tired you feel with the endless interruptions of your nights sleep because your husband’s snoring is window shattering loud. Or maybe you’ve compared it to a motorcycle engine, a thunderstorm or a chainsaw.

If so, you are not alone. Women all across the world have the same problem. For you guys whose wives snore, you have to admit the noise is not as loud and rarely does it disturb your sleep. For women with snoring parents it is quiet different. Men simply snore louder.

Believe it or not snoring has become such an insurmountable problem that it has become grounds for divorce. The lack of sleep, base on the nighttime snore serenade, of both partners can create multiple problems in a relationship. Two overtired people are not as likely to be patient with each other.

Vitrectomy Procedure Details

The vitreous is a normally clear, jelly-like substance that fills the center of the eyeball. It makes up about 2/3 of the eye’s volume and helps it keep its shape.

Certain conditions affecting the retina may require the vitreous to be surgically removed and then replaced following surgery. The vitreous may also need to be replaced if it is inflamed or infected. This procedure is called a vitrectomy surgery. It is also known as Trans Pars Plana vitrectomy (TTPV), after the area of the eye through which the procedure is most often done.
The operation is typically done on an out-patient basis or in combination with a hospital overnight stay.

Local anesthetic is usually the practice, however, in more complicated cases, general anesthesia may be used. Prior to the operation, drops will be put in the eye in order to dilate the pupil. After the surgery, so as to minimize infection risk, antibiotic drops are given, and also steroid drops to lessen inflammation.

Sports Massage FAQ

Many athletes choose to have a massage therapist amongst the people whom they employ to keep them performing at the top of their game. In this article, we’ll work towards explaining how sports massage therapists can be helpful for you by answering some of the questions that people often have about sports massage therapy.

What makes a sports massage different from the type of massage that I would get at a spa?

Many of the same types of techniques and strokes are used in both a regular massage and a sports massage. One of the main differences between the massage techniques used in the two practices is the fact that sports massage therapists often perform their massages using a more firm grip than a regular massage therapist. The deeper strokes used in massage therapy are helpful when it comes to aiding the soft tissues of the body into becoming oxidized, optimizing them both with a steady flow of nutrients and an efficient way of removing waste.

Liver Metastasis Major Threat to Cancer Survivors

Recent cases on headline news about liver metastasis such as White House Press Secretary Tony Snow’s recent diagnosis derived from his primary colon cancer, underscores the fact that liver metastasis is a major threat to cancer survivors.

Although cancer rarely begins in the liver, it is often one of the first places where cancer comes back, through metastasis, in cancer survivors. This is primarily due to the liver serving as a primary organ with a very rich blood supply along with a unique microstructure that allows cancer cells to easily enter and hold on once arriving.

Reflexology Treatment

reflexology treatment pathOn a person’s first visit to a Reflexologist, the therapist will ask questions to determine their present and past health and lifestyle, and the nature of their health complaints or issues.

The Reflexologist will use this information to determine which Reflexology points on the hands, feet, and/or ears to target, and then, using their hands, apply pressure to these specific locations on the patient in order to bring about the desired beneficial changes.

Sanitary Concerns

If your feet are to be worked by the Reflexologist, then they will wash and sanitize your feet before beginning the therapy. During the treatment, patients are only required to relax and expose their hands and feet to the Reflexologist – they do not need to, and should not, undress any further.
