The shoulder plexopathy is a collection of nerves that send signals from the brain to the shoulders and arms. Inflammation of the shoulder is called split plexopathy.

With the progression of pain may occur numbness in the hand, the fingers reaching down to as acute pain continues to move between the shoulder and arm.

Sleep apnea should not be underestimated, not only unsafe, on the contrary – in some cases it is life-threatening. Everything depends on the extent of the disease and its timely treatment.
What exactly is sleep apnea? Simply put, this is the cessation of breathing during sleep, certain periods, sometimes up to 100 seconds. The full name of this disease is obstructive sleep apnea. It is derived from the Latin word obstruction – obstruere (narrowing of the airways), and Greek apnea – apnoia (or shortness of breath). In most cases, the patient is unaware of the problem, or even not at all saying that there is one. The reason for this is the fact that after a bout of apnea, the patient wakes up and breathe quite normally, it suggests that it is a dream or just him it seemed. After a period of cessation of breathing during sleep, the patient wakes up with palpitations, tired, sometimes frightened, but given all this a bad dream, and sleep again to wake up from the next bout of apnea. Extremely rare, people suffering from sleep apnea, realize that actually have shortness of breath during sleep.

Panic – the best friend of infections
The Autumn is the worst time for anxiety, suspicious people. Banal seasonal colds cause them to panic. Ordinary symptoms are “read” almost as deadly: sneezing – it may be bird flu, cough – this is not a TB, and even temperature under 38 degrees is obligatory symptom of pneumonia. These indecisive people often experience undue anxiety. The strength of their self-suggestion is so great that they actually spend more heavily than others in various colds and to heal they need more time. The experts recommend this type of patients to engage in vspomagatelna therapy, normalizing the autonomic nervous system at night to take sedatives (a few drops of valerian or half a cup of brew from St. John’s wort), and in the morning – stimulants (tea of ​​rosehips, ginseng, green tea).
Diseases often attack those who do not trust doctors
Another category of people who cling to the disease are unbelievers in medicine. They do not trust the doctors nor the drug and are confident that the professionals are not doing things properly.

Millions of cases of cancer could be avoided without imposing complex methods of prevention, is the view set out in the report of the World Cancer Research Fund. The document proposes a list of basic measures that can be taken rapidly and by which, according to an expert, cancer will be reduced by at least one quarter. Calculations in the report show that over 25% of cases the most common forms of cancer can be avoided by improving the method of feeding, by increasing the movement and control weight.
“Logically, if things continue to develop as before, we expect a significant increase in the number of cancers – because of aging, sedentary living and increasing consumption of foods that have undergone more industrial processing and high energy content,” says Professor Martin Wiseman, project director.
