9 Surprising Reasons You Have A Headache
For Allure, by Cassie Shortsleeve. Headaches have a special kind of way of ruining even the best of days. And it seems just about anything (those super elegant candles you just splurged on, your aunt’s voice, that third glass of wine...) can cause finicky little beasts to start banging tambourines in your brain. If you feel like you have specific headache triggers, you probably do. Most headaches have them, but it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what caused the paint to come on in the first place. “There are probably 1,000 causes of headaches,” says Mark W. Green M.D., director of headache and pain ...

Celebrex Is No Riskier For Heart Than Other Arthritis Drugs, Study Finds
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A new study gives some reassurance to arthritis sufferers who want pain relief but are worried about side effects. It finds that Celebrex, a drug similar to ones withdrawn 12 years ago for safety reasons, is no riskier for the heart than some other prescription pain pills that are much tougher on the stomach. “We do not want patients to suffer with pain and we need to know what is safe to give them,” said Dr. Steven Nissen, the Cleveland Clinic’s heart chief, who led the study. Fear that Celebrex would be worse than alternatives proved unfounded, and “on almost every endpoin...

Counterfeit Pills Containing Fentanyl Found At Prince's Estate
Counterfeit pills containing the synthetic opioid fentanyl were found at Prince’s estate in Minneapolis, the Associated Press reported Sunday.  A source associated with the investigation told the AP that inspectors found pills in an Aleve bottle that were falsely labeled as “Watson 385,” a common marking for pills that contain acetaminophen and hydrocodone. However, the AP reports that at least one of the pills tested positive for fentanyl, which is thought to be about 100 times stronger than morphine.  The 57-year-old artist died in April from what medical examiners determined wa...

Link Between Heart Attacks And Osteoarthritis Surgery
Around 1.8 million people every year opt for hip or knee replacements. But I don’t recommend surgery, unless it’s absolutely necessary. And new research reveals that in the month after they had surgery, these patients — many of whom are osteoarthritis sufferers — simply replaced their bad knees and hips with a heart attack. Osteoarthritis is the most common chronic condition of the joints. That’s why I recommend natural remedies that ease the pain of osteoarthritis in a much more effective and safer way — and in some cases they can even reverse this debilitating condition. You see, gett...

Nutrient for Tinnitus Treatment
If you’re suffering from tinnitus, I’m pretty sure doctors and ENT specialists have told you something like: “I’m afraid you’re just going to have to live with it” or “It’s just age-related hearing loss.” What is tinnitus? Tinnitus, the constant ringing, thundering, whooshing or whistling in the ears, is aggravating and nerve-racking. It robs you of sleep. It shatters your focus and concentration. And it drowns out your hearing, because of all the background noise in your head. Tinnitus is not a disease, but rather a symptom of some other underlying health condition. Ma...

Medications May Cause Dementia, But It Could Be Untreated Sleep Apnea
By Brandon R. Peters, M.D. The news was enough to give you indigestion: Some of the over-the-counter and prescription medications most widely used to treat heartburn and acid reflux are linked to the development of dementia. The research suggesting a possible association is the latest in a string of implicated drugs over the past few years, including medications taken to treat anxiety, seizures, insomnia, and allergies. What is going on? Before emptying out the medicine cabinet, take a moment to consider the role of untreated obstructive sleep apnea. Scientific research can be difficulty to contextualize, especially when i...

Gout: Sleep apnea may raise your risk
Gout is the most common type of inflammatory arthritis and affects more than 8 million adults. Men are at a higher risk than women. And according to a new study, your risk for gout also climbs if you suffer from sleep apnea, a condition where your breathing repeatedly pauses while you sleep. What exactly is gout? Gout is triggered by the crystallization of uric acid within the joints. It happens like this: Your body produces uric acid from breaking down purines, a natural waste product of living cells. Normally, uric acid is dissolved in your blood and passes through your kidneys into your urine. However, sometimes your bo...

FDA strengthens warning that NSAIDs increase heart attack and stroke risk
Back in 2005, the FDA warned that taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen and naproxen increased the risk of having a heart attack or stroke. Last week it took the unusual step of further strengthening this warning. This was done on the advice of an expert panel that reviewed new information about NSAIDs and their risks. Because NSAIDs are widely used, it’s important to be aware of downsides of taking an NSAID and to take steps to limit the risk. Many people take NSAIDs to relieve mild to moderate pain. These medications may be particularly effective in conditions in which pain results pri...

9 Real Things No One Tells You About Having a C-Section
If you're lucky, the final weeks of your pregnancy are spent asking fellow moms what you really need to know about childbirth. I asked all the down and dirty questions getting ready for the birth day. Most, if not all, of the moms I spoke with had delivered their children vaginally, so there was the requisite Sitz Bath discussion and the "honey, get the biggest maxipads you can find" comments. But no one prepared me for what I needed if I had a C-section. A C-section is, obviously, a whole different beast of childbirth, which I learned just over two years ago when I had my son. Sure, I was fully prepped with ma...

Early scans for back pain add cost but offer little benefit for seniors
Older adults with new back pain usually end up getting a CT scan or MRI. That’s often a waste of time and money and has little or no effect on the outcome, according to a new study from the University of Washington. The results contradict current guidelines from the American College of Radiology. The guidelines say that it’s “appropriate” for doctors to order early MRIs for people ages 70 and older with new-onset back pain, and many doctors do just that. The study followed more than 5,200 men and women over the age of 65 who saw a primary care physician for a new bout of back pain. More than 1,500 o...

Report highlights the dangers of opioid painkillers
Whenever I read or write about the overuse of so-called opioid painkillers it is with mixed feelings. As a lifelong back-pain patient who once depended on them for pain relief, I appreciate the challenge posed by opioids to people in pain and their doctors. People in agonizing pain want it to stop, but opioids are often a poor long-term solution. Doctors want to help their patients, so they may prescribe opioids for extended periods despite well-founded reservations. At the same time, the epidemic of abuse of these painkillers has led to numerous deaths. Like many Americans, I know people whose lives were destroyed—w...
