Brief Answer: You should get evaluated and get diagnosis & treat Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX......, Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic! You seem to be having some neurological problem as a cause for your symptoms unless proven otherwise. The backache radiating to buttocks and thigh and knee indicates a serious local cause affecting the spine. It can be a sciatica or disc prolapse related issue. You should get a thorough physical and neurological examination by a neurologist and get investigated to point out the exact diagnosis. You would need CT/MRI spine as suggested after the examination and follow the advise accordingly. Meanwhile you should avoid awkward postures, should use a hard bed for lying down, use local pain killer spray like one containing diclofenac gel. If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you. Wish you a great health!

I was suffering from some memory related problems and on the advice of a psychiatrist I took a brain MRI ( 3 Tesla). The report mentions everything normal ( normal study in conclusion) except that the first line is incidentally detected right Mammillary polyp . My doctor is away for 2 weeks and I just wanted to know whether this Mammillary polyp can cause any memory related problems. Should I undergo any additional tests? Is a test for Thiamine deficiency relevant?
