Incapacitating - Unable to concentrate, needs to go to emergency room or see physician immediately. Women aged 60 or more - Migraine headaches is influence by fluctuations in estrogen and other female hormones in females. Discontinuation of smoking or drinking alcohol does not eliminate attacks of headache once it is established. Cluster and migraine headaches tend to run in families, suggesting a genetic component may be involved in some cases.

A tension headache is pain or discomfort in the head, scalp, or neck, usually associated with muscle tightness in these areas. If a headache occurs two or more times a week for several months or longer, the condition is considered chronic. Any activity that causes the head to be held in one position for a long time without moving can cause a headache. A headache that is mild to moderate, not accompanied by other symptoms, and responds to home treatment within a few hours may not need further examination or testing, especially if it has occurred in the past. The health care provider should be consulted -- to rule out other disorders that can cause headache -- if the headache is severe, persistent (does not go away), or if other symptoms are present with the headache. The goal is to treat your headache symptoms right away, and to prevent headaches by avoiding or changing your triggers.
Ask your health care provider about relaxation or stress-management training, biofeedback, cognitive behavioral therapy, or acupuncture, which may help relieve chronic headaches. Botox (botulinum toxin) is becoming popular as a treatment for chronic daily headaches, including tension headaches.

Diabetes (high blood sugar) has reached epidemic proportions in America, we must be very alert to the signs and symptoms, and if you have them, please see your health care professional.
People with prediabetes have glucose levels that are higher than normal but not high enough yet to indicate diabetes. Normally your body produces a hormone called insulin to help your cells use the energy (glucose) found in food. If you have prediabetes, you’re at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes as well as the serious medical problems associated with diabetes, including heart disease and stroke.
To determine if you have prediabetes, your doctor can perform one of three different blood tests: the fasting plasma glucose (FPG) test, the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) or the Hemoglobin A1C (or average blood sugar) test. The good news is there are simple measures you can take to reduce the risk of developing diabetes, these measures can play a significant role in early diagnosis.
The following points highlight important actions you can take to help reduce diabetes risk.

Anatomical and physiological changes during pregnancy change the biomechanical and musculoskeletal system which can cause low back pain.
Because most of the weight gained is located in the lower abdomen, pregnant women typically develop an accentuated lumbar lordosis (curvature in the lower back), which contributes to the very high prevalence of low back pain. Another important musculoskeletal change during pregnancy (particularly the third trimester) is an increase in ligament laxity, leading to increased risk of joint instability. According to the World Health Organization, there are about 50 million new cases of dengue fever around the world each year and about 2.5 billion people, two-fifths of the world's population, are at risk.
There is no vaccine to prevent dengue and no specific medicine to treat it, so the only defense is eradication of the mosquitoes that carry it and measures to protect people from mosquito bites.
But hope is offered by research being carried out at the Southwest Foundation for Biomedical Research in San Antonio, which relies on very special mice. This little-known infectious disease used to be restricted to tropical areas since it is spread by infected mosquitoes. Fifty-five percent of the world population, or 3.6 billion people, are now at risk for dengue according to the Pediatric Dengue Vaccine Initiative (PDVI). As the number of widely publicized H1N1 flu (swine flu) cases climbs in the Western Pacific Region, dengue is having a serious but under-recognized impact that you’ve likely heard nothing about. Making the statistics even more remarkable, dengue fever is one of the most underdiagnosed diseases in the world, and influenza death rates are grossly exaggerated in order to maximize vaccine profits. The CDC likes to advertise that there were 36,000 deaths in the US from the seasonal flu in 2006.
Complicating matters further, global influenza death estimates are based on mathematical formulas, not actual headcounts. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates several hundred thousand cases of DHF annually. The CDC reports between 100 and 200 suspected cases of DF are introduced into the US each year by travelers abroad. The CDC cites a 50-fold increase in reported cases of DHF in the Americas (1989-1993 compared to 1984-1988), translating to potential trouble ahead for the US. I would add to this list declining nutritional status and suppressed immune function from 21st-century lifestyle trends.

Dengue fever is caused by one of four closely related viruses of the genus Flavivirus (DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3, and DEN-4). Transmission of dengue begins when a mosquito becomes infected with one of the dengue viruses from biting a person who is infected. An infected person begins having symptoms in 4-6 days, and the illness lasts 3-14 days, although full recovery can take a month. In 1-2 percent of cases, dengue fever turns into a more severe form called dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF).
The ability to differentiate between dengue and influenza is crucial because dengue can progress into the more deadly hemorrhagic form.
Outbreaks of dengue occur primarily in areas where Aedes aegypti and sometimes Aedes albopictus mosquitoes live and breed.
Dengue virus is also spread by travelers who have become infected while visiting dengue-infested regions. In the Eastern Pacific Region, the current dengue season seems to have started early this year and has the potential to be the most serious in years, according to the WHO.
For more about dengue history and epidemiology, there is a comprehensive article in Trends in Microbiology, February 2002. Items that collect rainwater or are used to store water, such as plastic containers, drums, buckets, or used automobile tires, should be covered or properly discarded since they are mosquito breeding grounds. But buyers beware -- it is unlikely that this vaccine will be without its side effects, as are all of the other vaccines to date. Your best option is treating it as you would the flu -- and indeed you might think that’s what you have -- with supportive measures such as rest and hydration and some of the measures that I have recommended for the swine flu. If you do need a pain reliever, use acetaminophen instead of aspirin due to the potential for adding to the hemorrhagic (bleeding) complications of dengue. Building a strong immune system is your best defense against this nasty virus, just as it is against any other infectious disease. TweetThere are many constituents of blood and they all are necessary to be maintained at a required level. The symptoms of this disease are paleness, excessive sweating, tiredness, weakness, heaviness in legs, strong sense of hunger, increased heart beat, tremor, nausea, headache, and reduced vision in some cases. In case of low blood sugar person may have attention problem this is because brain cells need glucose and lack of calorie intake is accompanied by a drop in blood sugar. Diabetes is a very serious disease and the first sign of this is dry mouth, thirst, profuse urination, and itching.
When the body is unable of making required amount of insulin dependent cells than diabetes can lead to many different viral diseases, severe stress and genetic disposition. At the onset of diabetes, physical inactivity (sedentary lifestyle) may indirectly affect the condition of the patient. Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea and narcolepsy tend to follow by cluster headache or migraine headache.
Therefore, along with these precautions, consult your doctor today and get tested for thyroid disorder. Eating Healthy food, regular exercise reducing alcohol intake and smoking may help control hypertension.

The muscle contractions can be a response to stress, depression, a head injury, and anxiety. Such activities include typing or other computer work, fine work with the hands, and using a microscope. Then you and your doctor can make changes in your lifestyle to reduce the number of headaches you get. These medicines are normally used to treat depression, but they can also help prevent tension headaches.
However, chronic tension headaches can have a negative impact on the quality of life and work. Chronic daily headache: an evidence-based and systematic approach to a challenging problem. A licensed medical professional should be consulted for diagnosis and treatment of any and all medical conditions.
With diabetes, either your body doesn’t make enough insulin or doesn’t efficiently use the insulin it does produce. The pancreas may not be able to produce enough insulin after a meal to “clear” the incoming glucose from the blood, or cells may be insulin resistant. With pre-diabetes, you are at a 50% higher risk of heart disease and stroke than someone who does not have pre-diabetes. While the general rule is to have an annual visit, if you are overweight, have high blood pressure, high blood glucose or even high cholesterol, you may want to consider visiting your doctor every 6 months to have your numbers checked and discuss any health concerns. For instance, blood glucose (A1C) should be less than 7% and can be checked by your doctor at least twice a year.

Balance may be affected by changes in posture, predisposing pregnant women to loss of balance and increased risk of falling.
This increased laxity is caused by elevated hormonal levels, specifically estrogen and relaxin. It is a flu-like disease that produces a high fever, pain in the eyes and joint aches that can last a week. Renu Daval-Drager of the World Health Organization says some cases of what is sometimes called "break bone fever" can be fatal. By infecting these humanized mice with strains of the dengue virus, investigators can study how the disease takes hold and what factors might cause the more serious and often deadly dengue hemorrhagic fever.
You have a high fever, a crushing headache, severe pain behind your eyes, a rash, and excruciating pain in your joints and spine.

However, it has recently made its way into Texas, Florida and other southern states, and has reached epidemic levels in Central America.
However, there are now about 100 million cases of dengue fever annually, worldwide -- twenty times more cases than influenza! However, if you go to the actual flu table and look at the death statistics, 849 people died from the flu in 2006. The CDC itself admits it doesn’t really know how many people die from the flu since most people die from complications of the flu, like pneumonia. The fatality rate is about 5 percent, and in 2007, that amounted to 21,000 deaths -- and rates are increasing every year. However, it can be spread by exposure to an infected person’s blood, in the same way that HIV or Hepatitis B is spread. This can lead to failure of your circulatory system and shock, followed by death if medical intervention is not immediately provided.
This includes most tropical areas of the world -- the same places where you would find malaria.
Animal water dishes, birdbaths, and flowerpots should be emptied and cleaned at least once a week. One vaccine is scheduled for release around 2012 or 2013, and clinical trials are already underway.
Antiviral medications like the ones used for the flu have been found to have marginal value and come with a host of negative side effects.
If a diagnosis of DHF is made early, it can be effectively treated with fluid replacement therapy. If there level increases in the blood it is harmful for that person and same is the case when there level decreases from the normal.
Therefore, even moderate exercise is good preventive maintenance, especially the tendency to excess weight or hereditary predisposition.
Patient unable to sleep (insomnia) commonly tend to suffer with cluster or migraine headache. Sleeping in a cold room or sleeping with the neck in an abnormal position may also trigger a tension headache. However, tender points (trigger points) in the muscles are often seen in the neck and shoulder areas.
Overuse of pain medications during most weeks can lead to rebound headaches -- headaches that keep coming back. Biofeedback may improve relaxation exercises and may be helpful for chronic tension headache. Most people with prediabetes don’t have any symptoms, but they are considered to be at high risk for developing heart disease. When glucose builds up in the blood, it can damage the tiny blood vessels in the kidneys, heart, eyes, and nervous system.
When cells are insulin resistant, they won’t allow the insulin to escort glucose from the bloodstream into them. This may be a wake-up call as many who are diagnosed with type 2 experience little or no symptoms.
Other factors such as lifestyle habits and family health history should be reviewed to learn how you can adopt necessary changes to reduce diabetes risk.
Always consult with your own doctor in connection with any questions or issues you may have regarding your own health or the health of others. Increased weight in pregnancy can significantly increase compressive forces to lumbar spinal joints, hips and knees. This is due to the fact that this population has a low level of immunity to this strain because it was absent for two decades.
