    Eye pain and vertigo

    My wife had oral surgery about a month ago (apicoectomy) for some dental issues that have lingered over the years that were nerve related. A couple of weeks after the surgery she began to experience vertigo and eye pain behind her eye, on the same side of her face as the surgery. The pain is worse when she lies on the left side (surgery side). She took two antibiotics and a steroid post-surgery to rule out or prevent infection. She has been to primary care twice, the oral surgeon twice (he says it's....

    Girdling Multiple Sclerosis Pain ("MS Hug")

    I was wondering if anyone else here with MS has experienced the so-called "MS Hug," a band of pain or pressure around the chest or midsection. It's happened to me multiple times - ranging from feeling like a literal hug to being excruciatingly painful - but almost always only a night, sometimes while I'm fully asleep. Has this happened to anyone else, or is this a unique problem?

    Scoliosis Spine broken at T5-T9 Images Included

    Hello, I broke my spine in 1992 in a car wreck. T5-T9 was crushed. Now my neck and lower back over arch to compensate for the curvature at T6 (85%.) I've included photos of the X-ray that show more detail. I've been to several spine surgeons and wanted to keep my feelings out of this in hope to get the best recommendations. Are there any Spine Surgeons out there. That could give me their gut instinct on what should be done? Thanks, Daniel Photo's of X-Rays: Side View

    Strange Sensations

    I began experiencing buzzing in both legs and feet (at different times) 2 years ago. That occurs off and on. I then began experiencing pain in the back of my left thigh between my rear and the back of my knee. That also comes and goes. Sometimes I may not experience that pain for months. It does not feel like muscle pain, I didnt pull anything, no visible brusing or marks, did not sustain any injuries. Recently I experienced hot/cold sensations followed by pins/needles in my right foot that lasted....
