Here’s a cheat sheet to help you put a name to your pain.Tension headachesTension headaches, the most common type, feel like a constant ache or pressure around the head, especially at the temples or back of the head and neck. Not as severe as migraines, they are not usually accompanied by nausea and vomiting, and they rarely stop someone from continuing their regular activities. Over-the-counter treatments, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or acetaminophen (Tylenol), are usually sufficient to treat tension headaches, which experts believe may be caused by contraction of neck and scalp muscles (including in response to stress), and possibly changes in brain chemicals.Cluster headachesCluster headaches, which affect men more often than women, are recurring headaches that occur in groups or cycles. The headaches appear suddenly and are characterized by severe, debilitating pain on one side of the head often accompanied by a watery eye and nasal congestion or a runny nose on the same side of the face.During an attack, sufferers are often restless and unable to get comfortable and not likely to lay down the way someone with a migraine usually does. The cause of cluster headaches is unknown, but they may have some genetic component. There is no cure, but medications can reduce the frequency and duration of attacks.Sinus headachesWhen a sinus becomes inflamed, usually through an infection, it can cause pain. It usually comes with a fever, and can—if necessary—be diagnosed by MRI or CT scan (which can both detect changes in fluid levels), or by the presence of pus viewed through a fiber-optic scope. Headaches due to sinus infection can be treated with antibiotics, as well as antihistamines or decongestants.Rebound headachesOveruse of painkillers for headaches can, ironically, lead to rebound headaches. Culprits include over-the-counter medications like aspirin, acetaminophen (Tylenol), or ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), as well as prescription drugs.“Most of the patients we see in a headache center with daily headache have medication-overuse, or rebound, headaches,” says Stewart Tepper, MD, director of research at the Center for Headache and Pain at the Cleveland Clinic Neurological Institute.“They are on a merry-go-round and they can’t get off,” says Dr. Tepper. “They keep taking more medicine, they keep having more headaches, and so the patient becomes more and more desperate. That’s when they end up coming to headache specialists to kind of reset the whole system.”One theory is that too much medication can cause the brain to shift into an excited state, triggering more headaches. Another is that the headaches are a symptom of withdrawal as the level of medicine drops in the bloodstream.Migraine headachesMigraine headaches come from a neurological disorder that can run in families and are defined by certain criteria.•At least five previous episodes of headaches•Lasting between four hours and 72 hours•Having at least two out of four of these features: one-sided pain, throbbing pain, moderate-to-severe pain, and pain that interferes with, is worsened by, or prohibits routine activity•Having at least one associated feature: nausea and/or vomiting, or, if those are not present, then sensitivity to light and soundAn oncoming migraine attack may, for some, be foreshadowed by an aura, which can include visual distortions (such as wavy lines or blind spots) or numbness of a hand. It’s estimated, though, that only 15% to 20% of migraineurs experience this.Source: Shine
Press Association Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino has no concerns over Harry Kane’s future. “But Harry, like Hugo Lloris, wants to stay here. He is one of the best players and he is very happy. He wants to grow up with us and try the next few years to try for the top four and win titles with Tottenham. This is his challenge.” Pochettino sprang a surprise by picking Kane in a strong starting line-up against the Group J minnows Qarabag, despite facing Chelsea less than 72 hours later. But the move paid off as Kane nodded a 78th-minute winner to ensure Tottenham’s longest-ever journey for a competitive fixture – a 5,000-mile round trip to the capital of Azerbaijan – proved worthwhile as they made the last 32 with a match to spare. “We are through to the next round and this was our objective,” Pochettino said. “The objective is gone now. We will make sure we will arrive in a good condition to play Chelsea. We have a strong squad and a strong mentality, with the maturity. “It is true we arrive maybe not in the best condition to compete in the right way but respect to our medical staff for what they do – they will work during the flight and (on Friday) we have a day off. On Saturday we will assess.” The England striker’s red-hot form has once again led to transfer speculation, with Chelsea being touted to make a January bid. But after Kane’s ninth goal in six games fired Spurs into the knockout stages of the Europa League with a 1-0 triumph against Qarabag in Baku, Pochettino said: “I am happy that a big club want our players – this is because they show they are a top player with top performances. It is good when they are linked.

CANBERRA, Australia (CMC) – Fast bowler Chinelle Henry has described West Indies’ last two games as “must-win” fixtures in the wake of yesterday’s surprise defeat to Pakistan, and says the struggling side need to pull themselves together in order to hit their best stride.West Indies went down by eight wickets to Pakistan at Manuka Oval to suffer their first defeat of the tournament, after beating Thailand by seven wickets in their opener last Saturday.Sitting third in Group B, West Indies face powerhouses England on Sunday and South Africa on Tuesday, requiring victories in order to climb into the semi-final spots.“I just think that up top (in our batting), just for the opening two games, (we have) struggled a bit,” Henry told reporters.“But we have two more games to go, and we as individuals know that these two games to go are must-win games.“So I’m pretty sure everybody is just going to go back to the drawing board now, and in the coming two days I’m pretty sure everybody is just going to turn up and do what she have to do.”West Indies were lack-lustre with both bat and ball against Pakistan. Opting to bat first, only captain Stafanie Taylor and Shemaine Campbelle, with a joint top score of 43, passed 20 as the innings drifted to 124 for seven off their 20 overs.Defending a modest total, the Windies’ bowlers were undisciplined, the fielding was ragged and the intensity was lacking, allowing the Pakistanis to coast to their target with 10 balls to spare.Henry, playing in her second T20 World Cup, conceded that both the batting and bowling effort had been short of the standard expected.“First off, batting first, obviously we didn’t start well, (opener Hayley Matthews going) for a first-ball duck, and then we had a partnership between Staf and Shemaine which got us to a pretty decent total to defend,” she said.“But then again, going out on the field as a bowling unit, we just didn’t execute as we would want to tonight.“(Regarding) the fielding performance tonight, everybody was disappointed because we know we can do much better as a fielding unit. So basically it was just again, we just didn’t turn up tonight; and that’s something we definitely have to go back to the drawing board to figure out.”West Indies won the 2016 edition of the Women’s T20 World Cup staged in India but bowed out at the semi-final stage when the Caribbean played hosts to the tournament two years ago.
HE bowled the final over of the 2007 T20 World Cup final. Now Joginder Sharma is policing the streets as India attempts to combat coronavirus. Joginder Sharma bowled the key final over when India beat arch-rivals Pakistan in the first Twenty20 World Cup cricket final in 2007, but says he faces more pressure as a police officer making sure people stay at home during the coronavirus crisis.The International Cricket Council (ICC) and others have hailed the efforts of the 36-year-old as he hits the streets of India in his role as an officer of the law.“Obviously this contribution is much bigger because people are losing their lives,” Sharma told AFP from Hisar in Haryana where he is now a superintendent.“It was also a big thing, winning the World Cup for India, but here we have to save the nation. And even if I am playing a small part in this, then it is huge. “Sharma has been leading a team trying to keep people off the streets during a 21-day lockdown ordered by the government to halt the spread of the virus. India has now reported 29 deaths from more than 1 000 cases, but experts believe there are many more.Thousands of people have been arrested across the country for flouting the curfew.The ICC said Sharma had gone from World Cup hero to “real world hero” as it released a picture of the all-rounder in India cricket colours and his khaki police uniform.In his post-cricket career as a policeman, India’s Joginder Sharma is among those doing their bit amid a global health crisis.Sharma, who played just four one-day internationals and four T20 matches, said he is using cricket’s spirit of teamwork to tackle the crisis.“It was the nature of my sport, which is a team game and players work together to make things happen. So now we have to help each other and the biggest help will be to stay inside our homes,” said Sharma.“This is the only way to fight coronavirus. Feed the hungry, help the poor. Say no to social gatherings, go out just for getting essentials, but maintain social distance.”Sharma added that his “extreme fitness levels” and fame also come in handy as an officer on the beat.“People know me and recognise me and that helps putting my point across. But now I am a police officer and this is my duty.” (Cricket Australia)
A TOTAL of 142 people have applied for the England head coach’s job, with more than half meeting the criteria, says Baroness Campbell, the Football Association’s head of women’s football.Phil Neville will leave the role next summer, so his replacement will be in charge for Euro 2021 and may also lead Team GB at the Tokyo Olympics.After that, England are targeting World Cup success in 2023.“We’ve had an unbelievable response,” said Baroness Campbell.“I’m not judging it against what we’ve had in the past, it’s saying, ‘who has got the ability to take us right to the top of Everest?’“We’re at the final camp – how do we get to the top of that mountain? That’s what my job is. To find that person for the players. They deserve the best and I want to get them the best if I can.”Applications closed at the end of June, with Baroness Campbell saying last month that there had been “very, very good interest from significantly experienced coaches”.World-class appointment expected’- analysisTom Garry, BBC SportThat so many qualified candidates have applied will be a big boost for Baroness Campbell and the FA, whose appointment of Neville received criticism, given he had neither applied nor had any previous managerial experience.There had reportedly been 147 applicants from 30 different countries that time in 2018, but at least four of the FA’s preferred candidates pulled out of the process prior to them approaching Neville.This time, there is an expectation that the role will be filled by one of the sport’s top coaches, with Ellis – born in England – the bookmakers’ favourite after stepping down from her role with the US in 2019.The FA is understood to be confident of a world-class appointment, and England fans will expect nothing less, with their side having reached the semi-finals of the past three major international tournaments.Jill Ellis, who coached the United States to World Cup victories in 2015 and 2019, remains a favourite to succeed Neville, while Chelsea manager Emma Hayes, ex-Manchester City coach Nick Cushing and Manchester United’s Casey Stoney are among those in contention for the role.The FA announced last month it would make 124 positions redundant, as it faces losses of around £300m caused by the coronavirus pandemic.Baroness Campbell says the women’s game “has taken its hit” but insists that their plans will not be adversely affected by a £75m per year budget cut.“I’m afraid the reality is smaller budgets, smaller focus, smaller staffing,” she told Fair Play: The Women in Sport Show.“What we’re talking about now is what do we stop, and how do we find different, creative ways to do some of the things we were going to do through funding.”(BBC Sport)
That result, and the way the Scottish side exposed chinks in City’s defensive armour, will have given a fillip to Tottenham, fresh from a crucial Champions League win in Moscow, before England’s top two clash at White Hart Lane.Pep Guardiola’s impressive start at the Etihad Stadium had made City many people’s favourites for the title, and Spurs will need all the grit they showed in their victory over CSKA Moscow on Tuesday to avoid losing further ground to their opponents.Both sides will however be without key players for Sunday’s clash.Harry Kane, Spurs top scorer for the past two seasons, is expected to be out for at least another month after suffering ankle ligament damage against Sunderland on September 18, although Son Heung-min’s stunning form has ensured they have not missed him as much as fans feared. The South Korean scored his fifth goal in five games in Spurs’ 1-0 win in Moscow.“He is on fire,” Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino told reporters. “To keep this form is very important for us.”City, four points clear of their opponents and out to avenge their double defeat to Spurs in the league last season, will also be without several important players, including Vincent Kompany and Kevin De Bruyne, who were injured in last Saturday’s 3-1 Premier League win over Swansea City.City could have the opportunity to equal Spurs’ record of 11 consecutive wins had they won against Celtic, but Brendan Rodgers’ side did the unthinkable and held the City to a 3-3 draw.Now, the Blue Moon will travel to London and hope they can best Mauricio Pochettino’s impressive side. At Espanyol, Pochettino only won once in nine games against Guardiola’s Barcelona, but the Premier League is a different game, and the Argentine has a far more even squad with him at the moment.Heung-Min Son is one of the outstanding player for Tottenham this season, the South Korean is in incredible form at the moment and has scored three goals in Tottenham’s last two games, delivering crucial away wins at Middlesbrough and CSKA Moscow. Against the Russian side, it was only when Victor Janssen, Spurs current number one striker, was substituted, and Son moved into a central role, that Spurs began to look dangerous.Pochettino might be tempted to use the player in a similar position against City, who defend very high up the pitch. It would also allow the coach to play three attackers behind him in Eriksen, Lamela and Dele Alli and use a midfield double pivot in the heart of the pitch.Nicolas Otamendi will have the task of keeping the South Korean international at bay. In the absence of Kompany, the City team has always struggled defensively. However, Pep has managed to make sure this isn’t a problem, which is essential because the Citizens have the attacking power to outscore the opposition in case of stuttering defensively. This, however, won’t be the case against Spurs, and the defence will have to be on top of its game. With young John Stones alongside him, Otamendi will have to lead at the back.After a high-profile move from Liverpool, Sterling began his Manchester City stint well, but as the season progressed, his performances took a significant dip, and he couldn’t come close to realising his potential.However, under Guardiola, Sterling has rediscovered himself and is playing with the confidence that made him such a key player at Liverpool. He has four goals and two assists in six matches in the league. His end product has evidently become better, but Sterling hasn’t lost any of his flair averaging 3.9 successful dribbles every 90 minutes. With Kevin de Bruyne injured, the attacker will have added responsibility for the game and he will have to make sure he can make an impact in this crucial tie.The task of keeping Sterling’s threat minimal will be with Spurs’ summer signing Victor Wanyama. The 25-year-old has found himself become a first team starter immediately. The London side has the best defence in the league right now, and Wanyama’s performances in the heart of the pitch are central to that. He averages 2.7 tackles and 1.2 interceptions every 90 minutes. He will have to make sure Tottenham dominate the second third of the pitch.Sergio Aguero has an incredible record against Spurs – 10 goals in nine games. However, with Spurs’ excellent defensive form of last season, Aguero failed to score in both the home and away games. Certainly, the acquisition of Alderweireld played a part in ensuring Aguero didn’t make the record against Tottenham worse.Alderweireld is an excellent defender and has done supremely well for Spurs since he gave away a penalty on his debut for the club. After that mistake, the former Atletico Madrid defender has not put a foot wrong. He was a major reason why Pochettino’s side made a title challenge last season, and why they find themselves unbeaten in the league, and with the best defensive record of only conceding three goals in the league so far.While Alderweireld can boast the record of only conceding once from Aguero in his two seasons in England, he will be well aware of Aguero’s quality. He knows that the Argentine has the pace to move away from any defender, and the goalscoring prowess to score a goal out of nothing. The Belgian will have to be at his impeccable best to ensure Spurs can hold their own against Pep’s side.Arsenal, who are third, and Liverpool fourth, will both expect to maintain their challenges away to struggling sides.Arsene Wenger’s men will be bidding for their fifth league win in a row on Sunday at newly promoted Burnley, who won for only the second time this season on Monday when they beat Watford.Arsenal, just a point behind Spurs, will hope top scorer Alexis Sanchez continues his impressive record against Burnley, having scored three goals and made one in his three appearances against them.Swansea City beat Liverpool 3-1 at home last season, but with Swansea manager Francesco Guidolin under pressure following their poor start to the campaign and Liverpool revitalised under Juergen Klopp, they will be hard-pushed to match that in the corresponding fixture today.Manchester United with Captain Wayne Rooney by no means certain of a recall will be looking to extend their impressive home record against struggling Stoke City on Sunday, having won their last eight league games against Mark Hughes’s side at Old Trafford. Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram After their 10-match winning streak was brought to a halt by Celtic in the UEFA Champions League, Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City team is now focusing attention on the visit to White Hart Lane against Tottenham Hotspurs on Sunday in an encounter that headlines this weekend’s Premier League fixtures. City will also want to avenge their double defeat in the hands of the LilyWhites in last season’s leagueThe Premier League’s only remaining unbeaten records are on the line on Sunday when Tottenham Hotspur will hope to follow Celtic and inflict another dent in Manchester City’s superb start to the campaign.

A lot has happened in just one week of the MLB season. Solet’s take a look at some of the early surprises that have happened around thebig leagues.One of the biggest surprises so far is the fact that theDetroit Tigers are 0-6 after the first week. Making this even harder to believeis that all six games were at home. After pulling off the trade for MiguelCabrera and Dontrelle Willis, many experts picked the Tigers to make the WorldSeries this season.With the middle of Detroit’s lineup consisting of Cabrera,Gary Sheffield and Magglio Ordonez, many figured the Tigers would score plentyof runs this season and that Justin Verlander, Jeremy Bonderman, Kenny Rogersand Willis would be enough pitching to get by. However, Detroit has only scoreda total of 15 runs so far, good for 28th in the league. And their pitchingstaff hasn’t been much better with their ERA of 5.70.Yes, the season is still young, and the Tigers can rebound.But now history is no longer on their side, as no team in history starting 0-6has won the World Series, and only two have made the playoffs.Last year’s World Series participants aren’t off to a muchbetter start either. The Red Sox and the Rockies are a combined 4-9, and bothfind themselves in last place in their respective divisions. Colorado –fifthin baseball in scoring last season — has scored a Major League-low — 10 runsin six games — and has failed to top three runs yet. Boston’s potent lineupwith David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez in the middle hasn’t done much better,scoring only 23 runs in seven games.Kosuke Fukudome has made an impressive debut in America forthe Cubs on opening day, hitting the first pitch he saw back up the middle fora single. He went 3-3, including the game-tying three-run home run in thebottom of the ninth inning in his first big league game. And while the Cubswent on to lose the game, Fukudome has had an impressive first week, batting.421 and driving in five. Fukudome is proving that his presence in thefive-hole of the Cubs lineup will make it difficult for opposing pitchers.St. Louis’ pitching has been another surprise this season.The rotation of Adam Wainwright, Kyle Lohse, Brad Thompson, Branden Looper andTodd Wellemeyer didn’t look that promising heading into the season. However,the Cardinals currently have the second best ERA at 1.83 and are holdingopponents to a .235 batting average.Despite all the surprises during the first week, one of thebiggest surprises for me has been the play of Gabe Kapler. In the first week ofthe season, Kapler is batting .438 with two home runs and six RBIs, helpingMilwaukee to a 5-1 start.What makes his play so surprising is that Kapler took a yearoff to manage a single-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox last year. Now aftersigning a minor league deal, Kapler played his way onto the team during springtraining, and in the first week of the season he has hit as many home runs ashe did in 72 games with Boston in 2006.So there you have it. While there is still plenty ofbaseball to be played, and a lot can change between now and the end of theseason, it should be another exciting year in baseball if the first week is anyindication.?Greg is a seniormajoring in communication arts.
