    The bony orbit in which the eyeball lies is lined with soft tissue. In rare cases, bacteria enter the tissue, usually from infected sinuses in the nose , or from a boil near the eye, and cause an inflammation. This is called orbital cellulitis.The pressure of the swollen tissue pushes the eyeball forward, giving your eye a staring appearance . Other symptoms are severe pain and redness in the eye, swollen eyelids that you may not be able to close, and usually a fever. In rare cases the eye exudes pus.

Volkow noted a significant increase in research funding at the NIH for chronic pain conditions, which amounted to $400 million in 2014, up from $279 million in 2008. That is still just about 1 percent of the entire NIH pie, but in an era of shrinking budgets overall, that is no small progress.The increase follows the 2010 Affordable Care Act…
  • How to Talk About Pain - NYT

    13 Jul 2014 | 1:41 pm
    LONDON — IN 1926, Virginia Woolf published an essay on pain, "On Being Ill." Isn't it extraordinary, she observed, that pain does not rank with "love, battle and jealousy" among the most important themes in literature. She lamented the "poverty of the language of pain." Every schoolgirl who falls in love "has Shakespeare, Donne, Keats to speak her mind for her; but let a sufferer try to describe a pain in his head to a doctor and language at once runs dry." Where are the novels or epic poems devoted to typhoid, pneumonia or toothaches, Woolf wondered? Instead, the person in pain is forced…

    There's no getting around the fact that the abuse of prescription painkillers is a huge problem in the U.S. Prescription drug overdoses now kill more people each year than car crashes. But the overdose risks vary quite a bit depending on where in the country you live. One reason is that how often doctors prescribed the drugs, such as Percocet, Vicodin and generic opioids, varies widely by state. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention analyzed a commercial database of drug prescriptions looking for patterns. Nationwide, there were 82.5 prescriptions written for opioid painkillers…

A quitter is seen as someone who is weak willed, lacking character and just plain lazy. But maybe we’re approaching this all wrong.

  • Greek orzo salad for your next picnic

    31 Jul 2014 | 4:00 am
    Pasta salads are a summer staple, but can become boring with white flour pasta and store-bought dressings. If you’re looking for something a little healthier this year, try using orzo. Orzo looks like a grain, but is actually pasta shaped like a grain. It can be made out of white flour, whole wheat flour or even rice flour.  Whole wheat flour digests slower than white flour and causes less of a spike in blood sugar. Whole wheat is also good for heart health. Making a homemade dressing instead of buying one from the store means you know you’re getting healthy oils and quality ingredients.

This is due to an increase in baby boomers retiring and the increase in golf courses in the country. With summer just beginning, even the most casual golfers are beginning to take advantage of the weather.

  • Prevent Low Back Pain: If You’re Sitting All Day, These 3 Tips May Help

    Dr. Ron Nusbaum
    13 May 2014 | 10:21 am
    It’s easy to understand how back pain can result from a workplace injury or from repetitive stress. But from sitting? Yes. The problem often lies in the muscle group that connects the lower back to the legs. It’s called the iliopsoas or inner hip muscles. These muscles get tight when you sit all day. This tightening causes the abdomen to be pulled forward and downward, causing pressure on the lower back. Unnatural pressure on the lower back can certainly lead to pain. Prolonged sitting can also compress spinal structures like the discs and lead to their deterioration, and may also…
