Vertigo can be nasty to live with. It’s an affliction that creates the illusion of movement in its sufferers. The official name is “Meniere’s disease,” and “vertigo” is more of an umbrella term. It’s used to describe many of Meniere’s standalone symptoms.

How Is a Hernia Condition Defined?

‘Hernia” is the term used by health care professionals to identify “a medical condition characterized by a bulge caused by an organ or tissue pushing through an area of weakness in the partition or the wall of muscle that is intended to confine it.”  A hernia occurs when some contents of a body cavity bulge out of the area where they are normally held.  These contents, usually portions of intestine or abdominal fatty tissue, are enclosed within the thin membrane that naturally lines the inside of the cavity.   Hernias can develop at any number of locations in the human body but most often involve a portion of the gastrointestinal tract bulging through the abdominal/pelvic wall.
