If I have lower back pain of late as well as sometimes numbness of my right toes,  being a gout sufferer,  what does this all mean?

Various Causes: Low back pain and one-sided leg, foot or toe pain/numbness could be related to a vertebral disc issue in the spine, or piriformis (buttock) muscle spasm, both of which can produce sciatica symptoms.

Herbal medication to take for sever sinusitis, headache pain that seems to be giving me teeth pain now. As well. Is that possible.?

Herbal medication to take for sever sinusitis, headache pain that seems to be giving me teeth pain now. As well. Is that possible.?

Yes: If you have a severe sinus infection, that is not something to mess around with. As the pain increases there is a good chance you are also clenching your teeth more. I have seen many patients who thought they had a sinus infection and it turned out to be severe clenching pain. Unless you are improving rapidly, i would visit your md. If your teeth pain intensifies, see a tmj/bite dentist. ...Read more
