Do You Have Sciatica Symptoms

Comments Off on Do You Have Sciatica Symptoms

Do You Have Sciatica Symptoms Pain that begins in your lower back and radiates to your buttocks and down through the back of your leg is the characteristic sign of sciatica. If you suffer from sciatica symptoms, you may already know that conventional treatments only offer short-term relief. Over-the-counter medications, prescriptions drugs, steroids and surgery all have their own side effects with minimal, temporary benefits. None of these treatments offer a long-term solution to the problem. Left untreated, sciatica may lead to permanent nerve damage, loss of bowel and bladder function and even loss of feeling and use of the affected leg. What Causes Sciatica? You may find it interesting to know that sciatica is not a disorder on its own. It is actually a symptom of a damaged or compressed sciatic nerve. The compression can be caused by various things. For example, it may be due to a slipped disc, herniated or swollen disc, or degenerated discs in your back. Spinal disc conditions can also cause the piriformis muscle in the buttock to irritate the sciatic nerve to create pain in the hip and leg. Seventeen percent of the population has their sciatic nerve coursing through the piriformis muscle. This subgroup of the population is predisposed to developing sciatica. […]

U.S. Lyme Disease Cases on the Rise

Comments Off on U.S. Lyme Disease Cases on the Rise

U.S. Lyme Disease Cases on the Rise: How to Avoid This Dangerous Tick-Borne Illness Most cases of Lyme disease occur in the late spring and summer months, when ticks are most active and people spend the most time outdoors. Lyme disease, a tick-borne illness that can cause rash, body aches and even temporary paralysis, has been growing in the United States. In the most recent year for which data is available, 27,444 cases of Lyme disease were reported compared to under 9,000 in 1993. Lyme disease is caused by a bacterium called Borrelia burgdorferi, which is carried primarily by black-legged ticks (also known as deer ticks). If an infected tick bites you (ticks feed on blood and will attach to a host, including mice, cats, dogs or humans), it can transfer the bacteria through your skin and into your bloodstream. Though anyone can get Lyme disease, you are most at risk if you spend a lot of time in wooded or grassy areas where ticks thrive. In the United States deer ticks in particular are most common in the Northeast and Midwest, along with northwestern states like Oregon and Washington. […]
