Conditions with symptom: 'exposed spine'
i'm 16 years old, and female. i have suffered from a bad back for about 4 years since i fell off a fence, i was sent to a back specialist to see what is wrong, they found out my back is bent but like a wiggle shape, not a C or S shape. and you can only tell i have curve spine on x ray as there no sign on my back as spine looks normal. also on my right side my spine and hip have joined, i been told drs cant operate as there more likely to damage my back more, is there anything i can do to help the pain or stop it getting worse? also is there a name for my back condition, as i been told its abnormal and not given a name ? plus i been told i was born with this condition.
take it easy... i'm 14 and have delt with it my whole life!! try roling up a towel and duck tape it and when you sit put it where your in the most pain!!!! it helps a bit or for a whoile
i dont think i have a pillondial sinus but there is no name for it i am sure no one else has it... i have like a hole at the bottom of my spine/back and it is like it goes straight the way through to the inside of my body and some times it bleeds, i have had it since birth and it causes me pains in the base of my spine/back i really dont know what it is and no one knows i have it please help ?
I had CT scan on the top of my spine because of the pain i was getting , they said i have spong Osteoarthritis because it is curved at the top of my neck. But the pain i get in my shoulder blade is like shape stabbing pain and someone is pulling the nerve which makes it very tight and painful .is this pain caused by my spine curved or is it trapped nerve...?
I got circumcised 24 hours ago. Thing is I see no stitches. The only pain I have had is inside my penis where urine comes out and in my back passage. It's mild pain. My penis is very swollen and bruised and the foreskin seems to have been cut back very far. I only needed the circumcision because the foreskin was tight and blocking me passing urine which caused embarrassing spraying. The frenulum is now exposed and seems very tight. Could I put cling film over the exposed head to stop the sensitivity? I am a sixty year old diabetic and my consultant told me the foreskin problem was partially caused because of the disease.
My names beca and I was diagnosed with scoliosis when I was 13. I wore a back-brace 23 hours a day 7 days a week for 3 years. When I got my brace I had physcio to build my mussles so I could sit up without back pain. I'm now 25 and an taking diasapam, diclofenac and solpadol to help deal with my back pain. I would like to know if getting the operation at my age would help get rid of the pain or if there's nothing that will help can anyone say how I can strengthen my spine. I've tried yoga and marshal arts both made my spine hurt so much it hurt to move. Any help would b greatly appreciated. Thank you
Absolutely get the surgery. It will be much better than now. Never perfect, but you wont need those medications, just a lot of patience and years to get better. Its worth it, trust me.
my daughter is 23 with two curves in her spine she just started to complain about a sore back when she was 18. I asked her to go to the doctor the doc looked where she was sore gave her cream. for a treat she got a massage and the wee woman told her her spine was curved. she went back to the doctors. she was to wait for the hospital appointments so a year and a have later she got the xray just to be told the havent got the right equitment and that she has two curves. so i think we got no where my daughter wants to have a baby.I know shes to old now all her bones are fully developed. shes always in pain.
i am 30 years old and i have double bended curves in my spine if your daughter wants to have a baby there is no reason why she would not be able to . i have 7 children and all was well . just a lot of pain at last stage of being pregnant so more rest was needed .
I have mild scoliosis mid to lower spine area And the muscles are much more prominant on the left side. It doesn't hurt it just pops when i lift my leg or do exercise. (By pop i mean it feels like a vertibrate is shifting out of alinement.) The doctor told me the x-rays showed a mild curveture of the spine and not to worry. But I'm worried it might pop out and hurt or something more serious. it stops me doing my exercise routine which is effecting my every day life. Is there anything i can do to balance the mucsles out and get the mild curveture back into line? And is the muscle imbalance the cause of the curveture? Hope you can help.
I am 18.The colour of my skin which is exposed to sun alone are changed.I need someome to help me out.
I am 45 years old and I have been suffering from excssive sweating mostly at night but sometimes during the day too. I have had to put a waterproof sheet on my bed as i have already had to replace one mattress!! The sweats are coming from my head, neck and chest area, I can actually feel the tingling sensation as i am sweating and the sweat running down (my hair is always dripping wet and if i stand up and bow my head it actually drips off my nose!!) I have to get up during the night and change the bedsheets and my nightwear every night!! I must add that I am not feeling hot, my room is not hot either but it is causing me a lot of sleepless nights. I have a back injury sustained 5yrs ago which includes a prolapsed disc at the top of my spine and a wedged disc in my thoracic spine, could this be related? I have had tests for thyroid and menopause both were clear. PLEASE HELP, AT MY WITS END!!
exessive sweating can be a 'red flag' you need to go back to your GP for further investigations. If you was my patient as a physiotherapist I would derinatly refer you back.
im sorry i cant help u but i join u on ur quest. 18 mnths ago i had an accident. i now wear leg caliphers and have had a avc (disc decompression. the sweats come on any time but never under my arms only from the head chest neck area. the sweat stings my eyes then i cant see. i have to carry something to dry me off. the only time i am ok is if i lay on my bed under a fan and do nothing. i went to see my gp .she gave me some tablets . i took them for 2 day. i had a severely allergic reaction which put me in hopsital. now i have a few scaars from the rash. my sweats r back tenfold my life is a misery with it too. ive tried everything to find out what is causing it. or something to help it. i even have to use sudocream to protect my skin from being sore. i really empathise with u . i too am not menopausal. eg. if i am in the kitchen with the door open in winter. making sandwiches i have to put a sweat band on my head to stop it dripping on the food. i also have tissues by to dry my face and clear my eyes. i have rusted too many hearing aids over this problem. if u get an answer i would be interested to c how u get on. good luck with finding a solution. if i get a result i will consult back here. promise.
Im 27 n i had my hip replaced 2 years ago due to osteo arthritis and i now have a condition called axial dystonia that has called scoliosis and im now wearing a spine brace. I was hoping that someone might have some knowledge of Axial Dystonia as i have been refered to the national neurology hospital in London and have seen a Neurologist, but i dont really understand why i have it and if its connected to to the Hip replacement that i had to have??? I also dont know if the dystonia will go away, just as it came??? Or do i now have it for life??? Im soooo confused! Im tired of all the different pills that i am taking daily. I really want a normal life and to be able to enjoy life, but i hate being me at the moment, it really is no fun and im dreading the summer in a spine brace - its hot enough now but its gonna be disgusting and sweaty and i wont even be able to wear nice clothes. Helppppppppppp!
i have scoliosis and im 13 i had it when i was born :( i have to wear a brace aswell. I have to wear my brace all the time even in the bath and in bed. im not allowed to sit up with out it. when i wear clothes its shows my brace. when i want to wear something it shows it. I have to have an opperaton every 9 mounths. I have 2 metel rodes in my back they have snaped twice. I also had a bit of my rib taken out. I hope this makes you feel better. I feel really unlucky that i cant do anything fun like running, jummping, going out, i cant do ANY sports. :,( x
you should try hydro therapy as scoliosis effets the muscles. i have scoliosis and iom having some ribs took out. but try hydro therapy its were you do excersises in a pool its real good its doesnt take the pain away but you feel better :)
