I have a pain at my left side which starts from waist and via thigh and leg it ends at foot. I am experiencing the pain for the last 5-6 years. I work in a PSU bank and so I was posted in small towns in North-East India at that period and the problem was unattended and I took sometimes pain killers and sometimes Patanjali medicines. Now the pain occurs 2-3 times a year mainly in winter. For the last 3 times my waist got twisted slightly and I was unable to walk due to severe pain. This time it gets worse as I am unable to walk, move and sleep at night. This time I consulted with a renowned Homeopath and he diagnosed it as sciatica pain and gave me uric acid, creatinine, x-ray and MRI tests of which uric acid and creatinine are normal, MRI not done till now and the x-ray report says the following: Posterior osteophytes are noted in L2 and L3. L2-3 disk space appears slightly reduced. Please advise me that should I continue with homeopathy or I should consult with a neurologist?
What is he treatment for trigger finger. Presently it is on one finger only. Will it spread to other fingers if not treated.
Yesterday night I met with an accident. I don't know what was happening fa 10 to 15 sec my mind was totally blank. after I wake up. I just walked, and somehow I managed to came back home. And I just checked all my body parts for any injuries. I noticed some scratches on ma feet and also on my back right bottom side head. And it was lite bleeding. I just left it like tat. From today I just can not keep ma head on ma pillow. If keep my head on my pillow my neck ll get some pain. And also I can not get up. When I get up the same pain in my neck.
I have problem in my back my age is 44 after the consulting I got the MRI of LUMBOSACRAL SPINE IN REPORT "MRI examination performed for lumbosacral spine and images were obtained in axial and sagittal planes using echo T1 and T2W sequences. THE STUDY REVEALS STRAIGHTENING OF LUMBAR SPINE. Marginal osteophytes formation seen along the paradiscal margins of lumbar vertebrae. Type I end plate degenerative changes are seen at L4-L5 level. However visualized vertebra are normal in height, alignment and marrow signal intensity. All lumbar intervertebral discs expect L5-S1 show degenerative changes with L2-L3, L4-L5 and L5-S1 showing small right paracentral protrusion mildly compressing the thecal sac. No other significant disc bulge / herniation is seen. Distal dorsal cord and conus medullaris reveal normal intensity pattern. Pre/para spinal soft tissue planes appear normal. So this is in the report so now what precautions should I take and which medicine and exercise should I do.
Hi sir, I am suffering from full headek in the 10 days back im consult the doctors, take the medecins but not any action.
Once I had a sports meet and I was having fever but even then I went for the race, after the race I got cramps that I couldn't even walk, I was admitted in hospital but I never fully recovered, now the problem is even after 6 years, I get the pain whenever I bend my knee fully, I did exercise and build leg muscles but still not much difference, what to do now.
When I feel tensed or worried I vomit, I don't know why it's is happening to me, it's happening to me from around 5 months back, I took tablets to avoid vomit but still when I am tensed or worried (like before going to exam hall) can you please suggest what could be done for this?
The spine plays a very crucial role, both from a person’s movement and sensation point of view. It carries the nervous supply for a lot of internal organs and the lower body. By virtue of its structure, it also helps in movement through the disks. Due to various reasons, spinal injury is common, causing pain along the back, lower extremities, neck etc.
Medicines and exercise are the first line of treatment for most spinal injuries. The issue, however, is that these only provide relief from the pain and the medicines, but do not actually ‘rectify’ the underlying problem. Whether it is a herniated disk or a pinched nerve, the medicines and exercise can relieve the symptoms, but the disk continues to be herniated and the nerve continues to be pinched. Definite treatment is in the form of surgery, and with recent advancements in the field of spinal surgery, there are minimally invasive surgical options, which provide complete cure with minimal recovery time. Some of the benefits of this are listed below-
Smaller incision compared to traditional surgical procedures, where only the injured area is accessed
The surrounding tissues are untouched, unless they are injured and require repair
Lesser bleeding compared to earlier techniques
Lesser painful procedure
Reduced hospitalization period
Quicker recovery and return to normal activities
The question, however, is whether this is indicated in everybody. A detailed discussion with your surgeon keeping the below points in mind will help identify the answer for this. The main driver should be the answer to the question – will the surgery be able to effectively relieve you of the pain and symptoms? Additionally, the following factors help in getting better results out of a minimally invasive spinal surgery.
Presence of symptoms relating to nerve compression, including pain from the spine down the leg.
Recent onset of symptoms, with pain starting days to months before seeing the doctor. This indicates the condition is relatively new and so damage is minimal, indicating favorable outcome. Chronic pain conditions take slightly longer time compared to recent injuries.
People with active lifestyle who engage in regular physical exercise are likely to have better benefits from the minimally invasive procedure.
Smoking reduces blood flow to the spine, leading to disk degeneration and weakening of bones. Healing is highly slowed down and recovery is overall delayed.
Excessive weight puts strain on the back, and so healing can be delayed or badly affected with more complications. It is not a contraindication, but be prepared for a longer recovery period.
