Hip - Groin Pain - Repetitive Strain - Athlete

I have suffered from hip discomfort and pain for a few years now. Waterpolo was a big part of my everyday life.

Severe Headaches

Son struggling with severe headaches: My 15 year old son, Brogan, came home from school in October complaining about a headache. Thinking of his history with sinusitis we just thought it was a bad sinus attack seeing it was that time of the year. We gave him some meds that we kept in the house. The next morning the headache was actually worse. He had a fever and was very listless and he couldn’t keep his head up straight.
