Emergency room woes: An ache, a pain or what? by Jan Hasak Posted Tue 28 Jun 2011 4:57pm Last Thursday at 2:30 am I found myself lying on a bed at our local ER with a curtain drawn around my tight quarters, wondering if this nightmare would be one from which I would awaken soon. The drama actually unfolded the day before when I had an echocardiogram (E.C.H.O.) to check on my mitral valve prolapse . This condition, which I’ve ... Read on »
Rotten Ribs! (and pain again) by Susannah H. Posted Tue 01 Mar 2011 12:00am ….Once again the whole of my left side is wracked with agonising pain and I hardly know how to cough…. So most of Half Term last week was spent in a cloudy migraine haze, and I guess because my head was exploding so much I didn’t realise quite how much lung and rib pain I had particularly on the lower left side of my rib cage. And ... Read on »

Forty kilograms is a lot of weight to drop onto your chest and my first call was to a 57 year-old, in good health and with years of experience ‘pumping iron’ who did just that. He’d been working out, as usual, in his local gym when the Swiss ball (an inflated rubber ball used for various exercise ... Read on »
Ouch by Robin Patient Expert Posted Sun 21 Feb 2010 12:00am I can't remember if I've mentioned it before, but I suspect I have plantar fasciitis which is pain in the bottom of the foot from the front of the heel to the arch. The causes include standing on a cement floor for extended periods of time (the floor at work is cement) and weight bearing exercise (I lift and carry up to 2000 kg a day). It can be ... Read on »

Almost everyone has excess tension in these muscles not only from athletics, but primarily from environmental issues – we spend much of our lives sitting at our ... Read on »
Chest Pain: The Unwanted Sequel by Jan Hasak Posted Sun 24 Jul 2011 11:33pm A month ago I landed in the Emergency Room of our local hospital due to acute pain radiating from the left side of my chest.

She apparently wanted to see how much p ... Read on »
Six Things Pain is Teaching Me by Foodie McBody Posted Tue 08 Oct 2013 12:17am I thought I knew pain. I had had my share of it — from hip arthritis to sprained ankles to gallstones and two bouts of childbirth. But nothing has been like the past two weeks of astonishing, electrifying pain that has nearly disabled my every activity. It started so innocuously.
