Cubital tunnel syndrome occurs when there is pressure on the ulnar nerve, which runs along the inside of the elbow. Symptoms, like numbness, weakness, tingling and pain, can happen because the elbow is held in a bent position for an extended period, like during sleep or while holding a phone.

Cystocele, or prolapsed (fallen) bladder, occurs when the ligaments and muscles that hold a woman’s bladder (where urine is stored) in place weaken, allowing the bladder to drop, either putting pressure on or dropping in or out of the vagina. Causes range from a drop in estrogen that comes with aging to illness and obesity, and symptoms range from frequent bathroom trips to serious pain. There are both lifestyle and medical treatments to ease problems and symptoms.

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) occurs when a blood clot (thrombosis) forms in a deep vein, usually in the leg. Symptoms can include leg pain and swelling, and DVT most often happens when the body is motionless for long periods, like after surgery or illness. DVT is serious because blood clots can break free and lodge in the lungs if not treated.
