Edema Can Cause Pain


Edema is another word for a type of swelling.  With edema, you actually have an increase of pressure and that pressure can cause pain.  For instance, if you have edema in the sinus cavities, that edema can actually push against the wall of the skull indirectly through the sinus cavities.  If it does, you’ll actually feel pressure in that area.  Many times doctors are able to tell with their patients where the pressure is just by palpating, or pushing, that area and trying to find out where it occurs.

Taking Time to Relieve Neck Pain

Taking Time to Relieve Neck Pain

You know, neck pain is becoming far more common as more of us actually take the time to sit in front of computers, to drive, to try to play sports on weekends and not taking the rest we need. As all of those things happen, as more and more time is spent in those activities, neck pain becomes more common. One of the problems is we don’t always take the time to relax and relieve that neck pain, and it starts to build. As the pressure builds, people more or less don’t take the medication, steps or rest needed, and it gets worse.
