Q. Could there be an underlying problem if you have frequent headaches? Sometimes i get a headache that lasts for days and it doesnt go away when i take medicine. Could this mean that something else is wrong?

A. Migraines, pituitary tumor, subluxations in the cervical vertebrae (means misaligned bones in ur neck), caffeine withdrawls, need glasses to see and you have eye strain, brain tumor, stroke, hypertension -- does that help?

Q. What causes cramps in, under and around the rib cage?

A. Im not really sure, but you may have IBS. Irritable bowel syndrome or IBS affects up to 55 million Americans, mostly women. IBS causes are unknown. IBS symptoms include diarrhea, constipation, and abdominal cramps. There are IBS treatments such as diet and lifestyle changes and medications that can help. Do you have any of these symptoms? Almost everything that i found with rib cage pain said something about IBS. Not really sure if this is your problem, but I hope this helps.

Q. I have a reccurent ache just below my knee. what can it be? I am a 18 years old healthy guy. I never go to my physician, because i never need him, but in the past 4 month i recognized a strange pain just under my knee. The area is tender to palpation and the pain excruciate during walking and running. What can it be? What can I do to prevent it? P.S. I play collage basketball and this pain ruins my games...

A. Hi mate.
I am a 21 collage student and i play soccer.
It sure sounds like something i suffered from. Go see your GP and don't worry. if it is what i had he will probably tell you that
you can take any NSAID you want, and if you will give yourself a break from competitive sport for a month or so you will be just like new :)
