Question: I have had a Labrel tear and a hip impigment for the last 2 yrs on my right side without any real problems except the minor hip pains assocuated with that conditon, One night while laying down The other hip made a snapping noise like a series of pops and then alot of pain the next day along with low back pain. I went to my orthopidest who gave me a shot of cortizone and that took care of the back pain for awhile. MRI Revealed another torn Labruim now on left side along with Tendonopathy

The question is that since this has happned on both sides. My back Pain which I never had before has went from 0 - 9 Pain leval. is it possible That when the second Labreal tear happned it was too much for the back to handle. and now this intense back pain has started as a result of the second Labreal Tear. as a result, ? the pain happened the very next day after the tear happeed and came back as soon as the shot wore off

Brief Answer:
It is less likely that labral tear of hip will lea

Detailed Answer:

I have studied your case.
You history suggest early arthritis.
Pain along hip joint indicates possibility of early hip arthritis.
It is less likely that labral tear of hip will lead to sudden onset of back pain.
Spine pain can be due to spinal nerve compression.MRI spine will help to diagnose the condition.
This can be weight related also.
Till time take analgesic and cartilage protecting medication like glucosamine sulphate.
For hip arthritis joint flexion, extension and rotation exercises will help.
Physiotherapist will help you better to learn more exercises in proper protocol.
You may need PT for more time.

If required you may need another steroid shot.

Brief Answer:
There is no relation between the two

Detailed Answer:
Hello again

Insertional tendinopathy may lead to hip pain and limping on walking, but less likely to cause back pain.

Pain at that point may be started due to strain on back muscle due to limping gait.

There is no relation between hip insertional tendinopathy and back pain.

I never had PCS growing up. I am a 34 year old male, and started taking a supplement of Glucosamine 1500 mg + MSM 1500 mg (2 tablets is the total dosage) daily. While taking this supplement, I started having sharp chest pains, and didn t know if I was going to die of a heart attack. I did figure out that if I took a deep breath, I would feel a sudden pop, and the pain would go away. I am so glad taking the deep breath worked, because the pain was crazy. This would give me relief for a while, until I got another episode (around a couple a day). After going through this for days, I decided to try and stop taking the supplement, along with the multi-vitamin I was taking, and the PCS completely stopped. I have not had any since I stopped taking them. I just wanted to see if you thought this may be some information that could be used to isolate a certain chemical that may be elevated in some people that may trigger episodes of PCS. Thanks.

I am a 61, slim, female. My only health history consists of a heart attack over 12 years ago and arthritis in the hands for which I take Glucosamine and no other medications at all. Therefore, I live a balanced healthy life style. I have been experiencing sloppy poo over the last few years. It is now consistant daily and I never have a formed poo. I feel great all the time & don't ever get sick, but have been thinking that maybe this indicates some narrowing of the bowels? Need I worry?

About a month ago, I started having mild widespread joint aches, and it has gotten worse. The neck and lower back are the most affected but at times my right knee and ankles are too. I had an exam with my family doctor, which found nothing wrong....

my leg muscles and knees feel as if they need some lubrication. they are stiff and difficult to move, sometimes they are really painful. What can I do to fix this?

I have been constantly sick with colds, and fatigue since having three surgeries 3 years in a row. I weigh 125 pounds and am 5 7 . I have been told by many docs that this is due to much anethesia in too short of a time frame for my build and weight. I have been fighting bronchitis for going on 5 weeks now after 5 days of steroids and 9 days of antibiotics. Still have it. I want to find something to boost my immune system. Your thoughts on MSM combined with 50mg Zinc and Grapeseed extract which is also apparently good for detoxing the colon? Any problems in combining all of these/. I also take a B12 liquid supplement, E, D and calcium along w/a Glucosamine/chondroitin/msm (2 mg) arthritis in the hip socket.

Hello, is Boswellia serrate wood resin AKBA standardized extract 100mg and Boron 3mg that is included in a Glucosamine Chondroitin dietary supplement safe to take around or at all when you take 10mg Paxil and Claritin for allergies or has any known reactions together?
