Suggestions for some natural pain relief remedies


Chronic pain is a very difficult and stressful thing to be living with. And although pain medication still remains the most popular way to treat pain, there are thousands of natural pain relief remedies out there that might help you avoid the drugs.

Why is pain medication bad for you?
Pain medication is sometimes unavoidable, but you need to know that there are consequences for taking medication. All painkillers contain ingredients that can, if used incorrectly or too often, cause damage to your organs.
Pain medication related side effects is one of the major causes of people having to show up at the ER every year.
Also, pain medication brings with it the risk of addiction. People find it hard to believe that something as innocent as a pain relief tablet could lead to a drug habit but it has happened to millions of people.

Okay, so that's the bad news.... now here's some tips for using natural rememdies as an alternative:
Alternative therapies
Reflexology and acupuncture can be a great tool in pain control. As pain causes stress and muscle tension, both these types of therapies not only have been shown to reduce pain levels but also aid relaxation and stress reduction.

Herbs and spices
if you look online you'll see that there are many basic herbs and spices that are used in every day cooking that can help act as anti-inflammatories. Examples are Tumeric and Ginger.
Or Fish oil which can help with joint pain.

Water
Other alternatives to pain medication include massages and any interaction with hot water, such as hot tubs, jacuzzi or just resting an aching body in a swimming pool.

In summary, before you hit the bottle of painkillers just think that there might be a natural alternative which you could try first, which will not only help you with pain but also be gentler on your body.

What causes leg cramps?


Idiopathic leg cramps

Although the cause of idiopathic leg cramps is unknown, there are a number of theories about what might cause idiopathic leg cramps. These include:
  • abnormal nerve activity during sleep which causes the muscle of the leg to cramp
  • excessive strain placed on leg muscles, such as when exercising, may cause the muscles to cramp at certain times
  • a sudden restriction in the blood supply to the affected muscles
Also, tendons naturally shorten over time as a person gets older, which may explain why older people are particularly affected by leg cramps. Tendons are tough bands of tissue that connect muscles to bone. If your tendons become too short, they may cause the muscles connected to them to cramp.
Secondary leg cramps
Secondary leg cramps are caused by an underlying condition or another identifiable cause. These include:
  • pregnancy: the extra weight of pregnancy can place strain on the leg muscles, making them more vulnerable to cramping
  • exercise: leg cramps are often experienced when resting after exercise
  • neurological conditions (conditions that affect the nerves in your leg muscles): for example, motor neurone disease or peripheral neuropathy
  • liver disease: if your liver stops working properly, toxins will build up in your blood, which can make your muscles go into spasm
  • infection: some types of bacterial infection, such as tetanus, can cause muscle cramps and spasm
  • toxins: in some people, high levels of toxic (poisonous) substances in the blood, such as lead or mercury, can cause leg cramps
  • dehydration: in some people, low levels of water in the body can lead to a drop in your salt levels, which can trigger muscle cramps

Medication

Certain medications have been known to cause leg cramps in a small number of people. These include:

My wife is having horrible menstrual cramps. what medication can she take to ease them?


from http://www.mayoclinic.com :

  • NSAIDs. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may be helpful in relieving the pain of menstrual cramps. Your doctor may initially suggest taking over-the-counter NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others) or naproxen (Aleve), at regular doses starting the day before you expect your period to begin. Prescription NSAIDs, such as mefenamic acid (Ponstel), are also available.

  • Hormonal birth control. Oral birth control pills contain hormones that prevent ovulation and reduce the severity of menstrual cramps. These hormones can also be delivered in several other forms: an injection, a patch you wear on your skin, an implant placed under the skin of your arm or a flexible ring that you insert

The fuel filter wont come out of the rubber bracket


That can be a problem...sometimes they have to be cut off and a new connection cramped back on. If you don't have the tools to do that, you may check around for a garage that can help.

How do I remove a jammed staple?


All you need is to use a thin sharp wire rod to push the damaged/cramped pin out of the hammer. You can achieve this only if you can have such a tool , remove the lid to get access, manually turn aside to relieve the presssure on the damaged pin, remove the cartidge and replace after the pin is removed. You can also slightly tap to get the pin released from the jammed position.

Error message - design to big- use multiple hoop embroidery-won't transfer to my machine for a large design


If you can get the Buzz edit software there is an easy fix. Open the design in buzz edit. Under the view tab, show hoop properties and select xl6000 hoop. Then again under the edit tab select all. next under the buzztools tab rotate the design 90 degrees. This usually takes care of the problem, don't forget to save as copy. If it is still too large, shrink the design until you see it fit into the hoop on the screen. Don't shrink it more than 10percent or your stitches will be too cramped. Hope this helps. I use it all the time. Using this you can use designs up to 5.5 x 9 inches

I experience at times similar to a ''muscle cramp'' on my outer ear above the soft lobe. What am I experiencing? What's the cause?


Your symptoms are hard to put together without seeing you in the office. What you describe could be some local neurological problem, an unrealized injury or even part of a migraine syndrome. Migraines do not always involve headaches. I have to suggest you check in with your physician so that he or she might examine the area involved, discuss duration and associated symptoms if any and also what seems to make the cramp better or worse. Your diagnosis requires a doctors office visit. Good luck with it.
