A postnasal drip is something most everyone has had but that not many can recognize by the name. Every day, people swallow small amounts of mucus. This mucus usually comes from the sinuses, mixes with salvia, and causes people no problems. However, sometimes the body makes too much mucus, which makes it harder to swallow. Sometimes the mucus comes out the nose (making a runny nose), while other times it runs down the back of your throat (postnasal drip).
Ankylosing spondylitis results when the spinal bones fuse together resulting in spine rigidity. The effects may be mild or severe and can cause a stooped over posture. If diagnosed early and treated, the stiffness and pain can be avoided, and this may even prevent deformity.
Arthritis is a common joint disorder, often characterized by joint inflammation. About 100 types of arthritis affect people of all races, sexes, and ages. Common symptoms include pain, swelling, stiffness in joints, and painful movement. Often the symptoms come and go, vary in severity, but the condition worsens with time. Arthritis impairs one’s ability to perform daily tasks. All of the above symptoms also impact people with arthritis in the legs.
Atopic dermatitis is a skin disease that causes chronic inflammation with complex etiology.
