The nervous system is responsible for communicating vital messages to various parts of your body, helping you to act and react, see, touch, taste, and feel. However, if these messages get interrupted, it can lead to a variety of problems. Troubles with the nervous system could be one of the root causes for fibromyalgia syndrome.
Could the microvascular system – the small capillaries and the red blood cells that run through them – hold the key to energy problems in chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and perhaps fibromyalgia? The idea that the blood delivery system – not some metabolic derangement per se – is causing the problems with energy production is not new.
Heart failure is a chronic condition in which the heart muscle cannot pump blood as well as it should, leading to symptoms like fatigue, breathlessness and swelling in the legs. The condition is treatable, but it can prove deadly if it progresses to a severe stage.
Mobility — your joints’ ability to traverse their range of motion without any issues — is critical to our overall physical health. Mobility exercises help reduce injuries, limit pain and improve posture and balance.
Stroke occurs when there is decreased blood supply to part of the brain either due to a narrowing or blockage or when there is a rupture of a vessel leading to bleeding and compression of the brain that can cause brain damage, neurological deficits and disability, and sometimes even death.
Research has zeroed in on a few probable causes of long Covid, perhaps the most intriguing of which is the idea that the coronavirus sometimes lingers in the body undetected for months after an initial infection.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Behind many of those deaths is atherosclerosis, a condition in which the arteries become hardened and narrowed due to a buildup of fatty plaque, obstructing blood flow.
The Apple Watch ‘WatchOS 9’ new features include improved sleep monitoring, a medication management app, and enhanced heartbeat tracking for people living with atrial fibrillation (AFib).
On Earth, blood vessels dilate in order to increase their supply, and they constrict in order to prevent us from losing too much blood (per Health Pages). In space, the body finds both of these tasks difficult, which leads to a decreased supply of circulating blood throughout the body.
