Jacksonville Journal Courier (Newspaper) - May 25, 1990, Jacksonville, Illinois Or Lamb i have a constant pain in the right Temple area of my head sometimes it is a Dull ache. Sometimes it throbs. Other times there Are Sharp pains. This has been going on for years but seems worse lately. I have consulted Many doctors in different states a we move a lot a and nobody seems concerned. Not one of them have even taken a rays or done further tests. I am concerned because i have to put up with this daily. Otherwise i am a healthy 29-year-old woman with two kids. One doctor suggested that i might have to. And am gnashing my Teeth or that it could be a Quot weak spot Quot and is brought on by tension. I have been Reading a lot lately about aneurysms and blood lots and am getting scared. Taking tylenol does not relieve the pain. What do you suggest dear Reader the constant pain absence of other mentioned symptoms and its location All suggest that you have what is often called Quot tension i like to Call these stress muscular headaches because the pain is often caused by health doctor Lamb stress that results in tight or contracted Muscles. The contracted Muscles cause the pain like a muscle cramp. These and migraine headaches Are the cause of the vast majority of headaches. Your Story does not suggest an aneurysm of an artery in your brain or a blood clot or stroke. Since life stresses Are often a major Factor in such cases you need to review your lifestyle and see if you can reduce your stress level. It would help if you could review your problem with a neurologist to be assured that you have no other cause for headaches. That might relieve some of your stress. Two children and managing a Home May be part of the stress. If your doctor agrees that you have this form of headache you May need medicines directed toward reducing stress and anxiety. This can include Beta blockers such As inde ral that neutralize adrenaline action that is often part of the response to stress and antidepressants. Eliminating Coffee and other sources of caffeine is important. It is pretty hard to relieve the muscle spasm of the Muscles Over the Temple area but heat applications May help. I have discussed this form of headache in special report 85, Quot headache and facial pain a which i am sending you. Others who want this report can Send $2 with a Long stamped self addressed envelope for it to the health letter dept. 85, . Box 19622, Irvine Calif. 92713. Dear or. Lamb i passed an Scaris Lumbrix codes worm Over 12 inches Long and one Quarter Inch in diameter. I thought of All the questions i wanted to ask after i had seen my doctor. How Long can one remain in the intestine without being expelled what Are the chances of being infected again ? dear Reader. Some Are 18 inches Long and the adult form can live for about 18 months. The eggs Are in the soil and Are ingested. They Hatch in the Small intestine producing tiny larvae that invade the bloodstream and Are carried to the lungs. They crawl up to the Throat and Are swallowed. The larvae then mature in the Small intestine into Large round Worms. They Are not rare in the warmer regions of the United states. Were you treated follow up Stool examinations for the eggs Are essential after treatment. Other family members should also be examined. There is usually More than one worm. Large numbers May even cause intestinal obstruction. If All the Worms were eradicated and there Are no eggs in the stools you should be cured and would not have a recurrence.
