Does kyphosis cause forward head and a little bit of lordosis? I'm talking particularly about postural kyphosis.

Yes: Posturally it causes each. As the thoracic spine becomes more kyphotic, botht he lumbar spine and cervical spine become more lordotic to make up for the poor architecture, while keeping head in functional position.

Male 22 got postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. When I stand I go a little light headed. But when I take my BP it goes up a little?

Postural hypotension: Normally when one stands up, gravity tends to pull blood down toward the legs and causes a slight decrease in bp, to compensate for that, the heart may start beating a little faster, people who have problem compensating develops orthostatic hypotension, diminished blood valume may caused low BP and tachycardia, BP may go up a litte due to tachycardia.

Have postural orthostatic tachycardia when I stand up my BP goes up a tiny bit but I still go light headed a few seconds? How if my BP didn't drop?

It did: It is likely that during the few seconds you experienced light-headedness, your blood pressure did drop. It is nearly impossible to measure it that quickly.

Pots syndrome: Pots syndrome and autonomic neuropathy are two different entities. For pots syndrome ensure you are hydrating sufficiently. Half you body weight is your target goal in ounces for water intake. Make sure you have salt in your diet. If you get up and get light headed sit down and put your feet above your head to get the blood where it needs to be (your brain). Eliminate caffeine completely.

Depends how you feel: If the head of the bed being raised doesn;t make your dizziness worse, then it's ok. By the way, if medications and lifestyle changes are not treating your GERD in an acceptable manner, consider finding someone that performs the Stretta Procedure - endoscopic therapy for GERD. Hope this helps!

Go see your doc: Hearing problems and fullness need to be evaluated by a doctor and treated if a problem is found. Don't stick anything into the canal. Go see your doctor. They know what to do.

Is there a substitute to doing postural drainage for bronchiectasis? I'm having hearing problem from ear which may be due this but need to drain regula

Is there a substitute to doing postural drainage for bronchiectasis? I'm having hearing problem from ear which may be due this but need to drain regula

No good substitute: Doubt your ear problem is related to the postural drainage but more to your nasal congestion. First make sure that you are using your Nasonex (mometasone) correctly and that you are aiming the nozzle towards the sides and not the center of the nose. If this doesn't help after a few days. Then you need to ask your doctor to prescribe something else for you.

I do postural drainage for about 30 min p/day, now can't hear from left side of my ear. Is it possible tht this activity has caused imbalanc in pressure?

Fluid in ear: You may have fluid in your ear as a result of your procedures. Often Pseudoephedrine can be helpful in such a situation. Take a break from daily postural drainage. See your md. You may have developed an ear infection.

Head posture: Yes indeed. Strengthen neck muscles, practice walking perfectly straight, learn ballet posture, sit straight, concentrate on straight. A good exercise is standing straight against a wall, heels touching, rump touching, upper back touching, and back of head touching. Then push back of your head against the wall as an isometric. Hold it 20 sec. Repeat. Hold it 30 sec. Repeat. Hold it 40 sec. X4

Is forward head posture normal in some people? I'm struggling to correct mine with excercises (age 24)

Is forward head posture normal in some people? I'm struggling to correct mine with excercises (age 24)

Could be a problem: If the head is jutting forward & there was a time when it didn't or didn't as much you should be checked for possible scoliosis or other structural problems of the cervical/thoracic junction of the spinal column. Also, there may some spasming going on with the neck muscles themselves which need to be addressed. If you'd like to chat look me up at: www. Healthtap. Com/dr-drsaghafi Key Code: PDXFNR
