Suffering from Lower Back Pain?

Suffering from Lower Back Pain?

What is Sciatica?
Sciatica refers to the pain in the lower part of the back or the legs that is caused due to undue pressure on the sciatica nerve. The sciatica nerve is the longest nerve in the human body which runs down the back, the hips and the back of the legs. Sciatica is essentially a symptom of another underlying cause rather than disease itself.

Causes of Sciatica
The sciatica nerve controls various functions of legs in our body. Sciatica occurs when there is damage to the sciatica nerve. Your sciatica nerve may be damaged as a result of slipped disc, also called as herniated disc. Other common causes of damage to the sciatica nerve are lumbar spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, tumors of the spine and trauma arising out of an accident, etc.
There are certain factors which increase the risk of sciatica. These include:
• Age - The risk of sciatica increases after the age of 40 years.
• Occupational risk - Jobs involving lifting heavy loads or sitting for long hours in a vehicle or behind a desk increase the risk of sciatica.
• Diabetes - Diabetes increases the risk of sciatica.
Symptoms of Sciatica
The symptoms of sciatica differ from person to person. The symptoms can include mild pain or a tingling sensation in the legs to acute pain, which can make you unable to walk or stand.
Some common symptoms of sciatica are:
• Pain- Pain travelling from lower spine down the hips and the back of legs usually signals sciatica.
• Numbness- Sciatica often leads to numbness in one or both the legs along with a feeling of weakness.
• Tingling sensation- You may experience a tingling sensation in your toes, feet or legs if you are suffering from sciatica.
• Incontinence- In rare cases, sciatica may be accompanied by incontinence. This is an emergency condition and must be referred to a doctor immediately.
Usually, a physical examination is enough to diagnose sciatica. Physical examination which reveals all or any of the following may signal the problem of sciatica:
• Weak foot movement.
• Weak reflexes.
• Difficulty in lifting one or both the legs.
• Pain while bending the foot backward or forward.
In some, the doctor may perform additional tests to diagnose the problem of chronic sciatica. This includes x-ray, MRI and CT scan.
Treatment of Sciatica
In most cases, treatment of sciatica involves self care measures. However, in cases of acute sciatica, some other measures may be adopted by the doctor to cure sciatica, which include:
• Physical therapy- Physical therapy involves strengthening the muscles of your back and improving the overall posture of the body. Physical therapy is usually required over a long period of time to deliver tangible results.
• Hot and cold treatment- This is the most popular cure for sciatica. Ice packs are applied to the affected area followed by hot treatment.
• Medicines- In cases of acute sciatica, certain medications may be prescribed to reduce inflammation and as a short-term sciatica cure.
Medication of Sciatica
In case of severe pain, physicians prescribe strong medicines like a narcotic- Codeine, Vicodin and morphine for sciatica relief.
Self-medication of Sciatica
If you are suffering from sciatica, you can take certain over-the-counter pain relief medicines like acetaminophen, aspirin, ibuprofen and certain other tricyclic antidepressants. However, it is best to consult your physician.
In most cases, the best way to get sciatica relief is sciatica home treatment. Once diagnosed with sciatica, it is important to make certain lifestyle modifications to prevent flare ups. Sciatica treatment at home includes:
• Regular exercise- Prolonged bed rest is not the answer to sciatica. It is often caused by prolonged sitting. Therefore, you need to have a regular exercise schedule to prevent extra strain on your sciatica nerve. Regular exercise also helps in providing immediate sciatica relief.
• Prevent triggers- It is important to identify the trigger for your sciatica pain. It could be lifting heavy weights, bending, etc. You need to prevent these triggers as much as possible.
• Avoid lifting heavy weights- Lifting heavy weights puts undue pressure on the sciatica nerve and must be avoided.
• Physical therapy- Regular physical therapy is important to strengthen the muscles in your back. Physical therapy as a measure for back pain treatment is one of the most popular sciatica remedies.
In certain cases, preventing sciatica is not entirely possible. However, the lifestyle modifications suggested above, such as regular exercise and avoiding prolonged sitting are known to reduce the risk of sciatica.

Who knew that steamed tofu steak might turn you into a horn dog? Soya products like tofu and edamame contain phytoestrogens, which basically mimic the effects of estrogen, the chief female sex hormone.
Consider this one a double-whammy. Not only are oysters thought of as an aphrodisiac (the smell of salty ocean air alone turns us on). They’re also extremely rich in zinc, which helps with the production of testosterone, says Wissing, which boosts sex drive and your man's sperm count. Raw bar date, anyone?
Dark Chocolate
Like oysters, many say dark chocolate is an aphrodisiac… all the more reason you two should indulge in the occasional after-dinner dessert in bed. Chocolate also helps release the mood-lifting hormone serotonin in the brain. Happy plus horny and you can count on a good roll in the hay.
Ginseng Tea
Finally, good news for tea-lovers. The compound ginsenoside in ginseng tea is believed to increase sperm count due to its effect on the gonadal tissue. The tea isn’t only good for those little swimmers; it's also believed to improve his desire to get it on.
Hot Peppers
According to nutritionist Kimberly Snyder, hot peppers don't only make your upper lip sweat. They rev your engine, too. The peppers are believed to speed up your metabolism and increase the blood flow to your nether regions. Not to mention, if your cheeks flush from the spice, someone might think you’re flirting, which can only improve matters.

Hopefully he's not battling impotence, but it can't hurt to nosh on this sexy fruit.

Leafy Greens
The last thing you want to be is anemic, a.k.a. iron deficient, and falling asleep instead of making magic under the sheets. Get your iron fix with beans and leafy greens, and make sure to pair those veggies with Vitamin C (red and orange bell peppers and citrus fruits, for instance) to increase the iron’s absorption, says Wissing.
High-fiber Carbs
You carbo-load pre-marathon, why not pre-marathon sex? Embrace the healthy carbs like whole grain bread, quinoa and barley so you have the energy to keep going all night long.
Fatty Fish
Penises and vaginas require a healthy blood flow. Fortunately the fatty tuna and salmon wrapped in your sushi lunch is packed with Omega-3 fatty acids, which help with circulation. And Strong circulation can help increase the effects of clitoral stimulation.

Nine Must-Avoid Sex Goof Ups

Nine Must-Avoid Sex Goof Ups

When you're in bed with your lover, the last thing you want to do is turn them off. That said, here are a few common blunders that you should not commit.

Is Sex Addiction Real?
How to have more sex
1. Not kissing
Believe it or not, many people (and this includes women) don't kiss their partner when they're having sex. Why? Perhaps because the positioning doesn't allow for it or they are too eager to climax and feel that it might break the rhythm. Nevertheless, it is highly recommended that you make an effort to kiss your partner during the act - it will only add to the experience.
2. Biting before your partner's ready
While many people enjoy an aggressive partner, biting any part of their body before they are aroused may lead to pain and discomfort (and might even lessen the chances of any further action ) or simply scare them off. So make sure your partner is fully excited before you bite their ear, shoulders, neck or any other part of their body.
3. Ignoring everything but sexualised parts
Genitals are great, no doubt, but you should definitely pay attention to other parts of your lover's body and focus for some time on their entire body - knees, wrists, back and stomach are highly erogenous zones for men as well as women. Gently caressing these areas will help excite your partner further; in turn, increasing the chances of them pleasuring you back.
4. Putting your weight on your partner
Even if you're a girl! It's okay to lose yourself in the moment every once in a while and go crazy on your lover. But when you're lying on top of them, you have to be careful not to drop your weight on them. Chocking them or hindering their ability to breathe will anyway kill the moment and any chances of some good action.
5. Climaxing too soon/ too late
This one is especially for men. You need to have good control on your muscles to ensure that you can ejaculate at an appropriate time. Too soon and you may leave your partner unsatisfied; too late and it might leave your partner feeling as if they're pumping iron at the gym. To avoid this, spend a lot more time on foreplay (this will help men as well as women). If you take too long and can only ejaculate via manual stimulation, do your best to get your partner to orgasm and then they can return you the favour.
6. Not warning your partner before you climax
If you're going to let go - and this applies even to women - whether during oral sex or intercourse, you need to tell your partner beforehand. Something as simple as 'I'm going to let go,' will suffice. Your partner deserves to know.
7. Treating sex like porn
Although some couples enjoy having raunchy sex, you'd be wise to talk to your partner before you engage in such behaviour. If you begin being nasty with your lover without knowing if they like it first, chances are the scenario won't end on a happy note.
8. Staying quiet
Do you like to hear it when your partner is having a good time? So pay them the same respect and speak up when you're enjoying yourself. Something as simple as a little moan, or even saying something like, 'that feels so good,' will encourage them and educate them further on your moan zones.
9. Mechanical act
It may feel comfortable to you to pump away like you do at the gym, but you'll quickly discover that most people don't enjoy such an act. Mix it up a little bit; go fast at times, then slowly. Be creative and you'll find yourself enjoying some variation too.

Fakeih hopes expats will take advantage of grace period

Fakeih hopes expats will take advantage of grace period

Labor Minister Adel Fakeih yesterday called on all illegal foreign workers to make use of the three-month grace period given by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah to correct their status.

“It’s a good opportunity for serious expats to correct their situation as there is no justification for the stay of foreigners who work for firms other than their sponsors or for their own accounts,” the minister said.

He said his ministry would provide all facilities for expatriates to correct their status, while urging everybody to cooperate to protect the interests of the nation as well as the labor market.

He said many expats could not renew their iqamas or residency permits because of their own reasons or that of sponsors, who may have slipped into the red or yellow categories of the Nitaqat system for failing to employ the required number of Saudis.

The minister said firms in green and platinum categories would benefit during the correction period as they would be able to recruit those workers of companies in the red and yellow that failed to correct their status.
“This will help them save the expenditure for foreign recruitment,” he added.

He said the correction campaign would help Saudis get more jobs as companies in red and yellow would try to employ more of them to correct their status. He expected platinum and green companies to recruit more Saudis to maintain their Nitaqat position.

“The move against violators will also enable Saudis to open small and medium enterprises and they will not face any competition from illegal cover-up businesses,” he said.

Fakeih said the expats already know what violations they have committed and there is no need of explaining it to them again. He said police would support labor officials in their campaign against illegal workers.

Saudi Arabia appreciates the efforts being made by foreign workers in the Kingdom’s development. “At the same time it asserts that they should follow the country’s law,” the minister added.

Police performance review: Speed up targeted operation in Karachi says Zardari

KARACHI: President Asif Ali Zardari on Sunday called upon the interim government in Sindh to speed up its ongoing targeted operation against criminals.
Presiding over his first meeting with the caretaker cabinet, President Zardari examined the performance of Sindh police and emphasised the need to improve living conditions for enhanced policing.
Sources said that the president was briefed on the operation being carried out by law enforcing agencies in different parts of Karachi. He was also informed about the recruitment of 8,000 additional police personnel in the province. On the occasion, President Zardari directed the government to take all possible measures to fight lawlessness and curb unrest across the province.
The meeting, which was attended Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad Khan and caretaker Chief Minister Justice (retd) Zahid Kurban Alvi, also discussed the security plan for the upcoming elections.
The president asked the provincial caretaker setup to take appropriate measures to maintain law and order during the elections and voiced hope that the cabinet would contribute towards holding free, fair and transparent elections.
Sindh interim Information Minister, Noorul Huda Shah, while speaking to media outside Bilawal House said that the provincial government will improve the election security plan following the direction of the president.
“The president has called for a better police performance,” Shah told The Express Tribune. She added that the president had suggested a six-hour duty shift may contribute towards improved policing. “He has also directed the government to look towards better health and residence facilities for the police.”
Shah said that while a six-hour duty seemed impossible, the issues faced by the police department, including health, residence and better uniforms would be resolved on an urgent basis.

Kim has taken a lot of heat for her growing figure in recent weeks (including being dubbed "fat" and compared to a killer whale), but brushed off the mean-spirited comments during an appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" last week.
"I mean, what do you expect? I hope I gain weight. I'm a little heavy," she told Jay at the time, adding that she considers mocking a pregnant woman's weight to be "bully-ish." "There's just more to love right now.
