Recent Osteopathy Questions

  • I consulted with you a few months ago about a pain in my lower

    I consulted with you a few months ago about a pain in my lower right abdomen. You suggested it could be osteopathy. I haven't seen a specialist in that area yet. but your suggestion reassured me. I'm less skeptical to exercise to a very limited degree. I also don't feel afraid that I'll never find as solution for this problem.
    My gastroenterologist, who is a very nice doctor, practiced osteopathy but no longer does. He recommended another specialist who does.When some of my medical bills clear up I will make an appointment to find out if what you suggested is the cause of my pain during and after exercise.
    Now I have another prolem. I'm 55 years old. I haven't had my mnstrual cycle in two years. I went through the "hot flashes" phase - I thought. Now, after severl months of not having "hot flashes" I'm having them again. I have a very intense hot sensation in my chest area for a few minutes then it passes. Sometimes I have to remove my top to cool down. When I'm in public I'm afraid I might get too hot and pass out. I feel that way whenever I can't find a relieve from the hot sensation.

    Why am I having recurring "hot flashes" when I thought they were over? Does that occur even after menopause?
  • I have been receiving cranial therapy and osteopathy for tmj.

    I have been receiving cranial therapy and osteopathy for tmj. Have been told the ear problems I have suffered for a year were down to this and the muscles going into bad spasm.There has been some improvement and loosening up but is it possible that through osteopathy things could get back to normal totally?
  • For several years Ive had a pain in my lower right abdomen

    For several years I've had a pain in my lower right abdomen whenever I exercise. Sometimes it's so severe that I have to stop exercising completely. Now even the slightest movement in the form of exercise causes an acute pain. Whenever I lie on my right side it mildly hurts.

    I don't want to stop exercising since I'm a 55 year old woman.

    What might be the cause and how can I deal with it?
