Have this checked: I would advise you see a physician to have this checked out. Possibly your anemic (not enough blood), from not making enough blood (not enough iron in diet), or losing blood (excessive menstrual blood lose). These are some of the possible causes, there are many for low blood pressure and dizziness. A physician can do a full History and physical to better determine the cause.

MANY: There are many things that may cause neck & lower back pain. The 2 most common is sprain/strains, and arthritis. Others are disc herniations, infections, tumors, fractures, and congenital deformities. If you are experiencing pain and it does not respond to heat, rest, and stretching exercises, i would suggest that you see your pcp for an evaluation.

Several suggestions: Evaluate your routine to determine how long it takes before the discomfort begins. This will help you determine when to stand and stretch, do isometric exercises, or a combination of both. Evaluate your chair and if possible, obtain one that has at least three adjustment. Seat height, armrest, and lumbar.

Depends on u & type: This depends on the type of surgery done and what condition you are in at the time of surgery and whether there were any complications with the surgery. For an outpatient microdisectomy, it can range from activity restriction for several weeks and some home exercises to a full fledged physical therapy program of at least 6 weeks with a more involved surgery like a multilevel fusion.

Blisters under: Toenails are quite common in sports participants. If you're able to drain it, apply a topical antibiotic and wrap it in a band aid, that's about the best you can do short term. You might want to check on the size of the soccer boots. If too small, they can be making things worse. Also, i hope the coach/trainer has them wearing running shoes for the pure running workouts.

She might try wearing two pair of socks on each foot and see if that helps. This was something I was taught back in high school by my coach and it worked for me. ( to prevent the blisters, not treat them.)

A 28-year-old male asked:

My wife has a boil behind her back. Sometimes, the boil will swell and contained pus. We think egg consumtion caused this. Is it possible?

No: A boil is an infection from an organism on the skin. There are also glands that can become occluded and these sebaceous glands will drain a malodorous thick material but they are not always infected. See your doctor for treatment but not related to eggs.
