A: It may be Sciatica. The term sciatica describes the symptoms of leg pain and possibly tingling, numbness or weakness that travels from the low back through the buttock and down the large sciatic nerve in the back of the leg. The vast majority of people who experience sciatica get better with time (usually a few weeks or months) and find pain relief with non-surgical sciatica treatment. For others, however, sciatica can be severe and debilitating. The clinical diagnosis of sciatica is referred to as a "radiculopathy", which means simply that a disc has protruded from its normal position in the vertebral column and is putting pressure on the radicular nerve (nerve root) in the lower back, which forms part of the sciatic nerve.

calcium supplements? can cause heart attack

A: Yes, I have also read a while back that too much calcium can cause heart problems for women, and also kidney stones (I think). So although the recommended doses from doctors and such is usually 1200mg daily, I decided to take only 500 mg. daily in two seperate doses. I figure I get the rest through foods, such as kale, brocoli, spinach, yogurt occasionally. For me this regimen has worked out well , along with exercise(walking and weights). I had a 10.8% increase in bone density on my last dexa. I am having another dexa on dec. 8...hoping for another increase. All the best to you. I do what tomatojuice does. I figure I get the best absorption from whole foods so I get the majority of my calcium from food...

what happened if you have clogged ears and ear pain?

A: I take it you''re asking what to do when you have these symptoms. It depends in the extent of the symptoms. Likely you are experiencing a fluid buildup in your inner ears because they are not draining properly...and the cause may be due to an infection. There is a tube, called the eustatian tube, which drains the inner ear to the throat. If this tube isn''t working properly then fluids will build up in your inner ears. This may cause ''clogged'' ears, sensation of fluids shifting in your ears when you tilt your head, dizziness, or even pain. Pain can be caused by two things, normally. One is as a direct result of an ear infection. The other is as a result of fluids building up in your inner ear and exerting pressure on your ear drum. If your eustatian tube doesn''t...
