    Concerned

    I had an injection in my neck yesterday. I accidently moved during the injection because of the pain. I am now experiencing a squishy sound in my neck whenever I move, a severe headache, nausea, a stiff neck. What could be happening? After the injection, I felt extreme numbness and tingling throughout my body.

    Severe Back/Neck Pain for 17 Y/O

    Hey, I'm a 17 year old with major back pain, right in the middle right side, and when I put my head down, the pain is more intense, when I put my head back, there's pain in the back part of my neck and upper back. I've been to physical therapy for 5 months, had multiple deep tissue massages, dry-needling, and nothing worked at all. I also had an MRI done, showing that nothing's wrong. But one doctor told me that it's a "muscular" issue but wasn't told any solution....

    Don't understand!!

    I have AS which is Ankylosing spondylitis is a long-lasting spinal condition in which the joints between the bones of the spine become inflamed. Over time, this causes the bones to fuse together, making your spine less flexible and I have M.S. Multiple Sclerosis. I have been going to Pain Management for 10 years and for the last two years I've been taking 15mg Oxycodone 5Xa day and 50mcg of Fentanyl patch's ever 72 hours. Now, I had a relapse with my MS and my memory was so bad actually got....

  • Spinal Cord Stimulator Issues?

    I had my SCS unit implamtrd in 2010. Some good came out of it. However now I am having a severe stomach issue. First I was told I possibly had scerosis of the liver. Went thru testing. No. Then when getting up from the examing table it was noticed that my stomach looked like a ventral hernia. Waiting 3 months to see a surgeon he said Nope....not ventral. He said it looks as if the area where you'd get a six pack....the skin cover the right side was expanded or blown. I am realllly wondering IF....

    Right scapula bursitis??

    Hi, Got rear ended years back and got a delayed painful neck because of it. My right hand was on the gear shift, too, and I'm wondering if it jacked my shoulder/scapula area up somehow. I'm constantly leaning my head to the left to try and crack my neck. My head jerks on its own sometimes. The right side of my brain bothers me. My right trapezius? will get really tense and the pain or stress seems to originate from the right shoulder blade area. Suggestions?

    Knee pain

    My left knee has been giving me grief here and there for a couple years now but it’s never been overwhelming until just recently. Every time I kneel down (which is pretty often) it feels like I’m kneeling on nails. I’ve been kneeling on concrete floors for about 17 years now so I’m sure my knee is shot. I plan on holding off until September or October to see a doctor because of a busy next couple months. Any thoughts on what I might be looking at? Suggestions for pain management and inflammation....

    Shoulder dislocation - recovery question

    Hey all, My right shoulder has dislocated six times, most recently about two months ago. It was recently explained to me how/why this keeps happening. Basically, the sack holding all my nerves and muscles together in my shoulder is weak. When I questioned the physical therapist about what I can do to help it heal, she only recommended stretches and things - which hurt, badly. Is/has anyone been in a similar situation where they found something to help grow this sack back? Make it stronger? Thanks....

    Broken toe

    I am 13 yo and I was riding a pedalgo cart and almost crashed but I put my feet down to stop myself (Fred flinstone style:p) and scraped a huge chunk of skin off the tip of my big toe . We cleaned it out and bandaged it but it's been 13 days and the cut is healed but my toe is swollen and a little bruised and still hurts really bad (can't put weight on it) could it be broken???
