Question: I have an MRI result here but can't see my Orthopedic doctor until 8/11. Have had this pain for several weeks now and Urgent Care has put me on pain meds but in the meantime could you explain the meaning of the findings. Can I email you the sheet?

Brief Answer:
You are suffering from tendon & bursa inflammation

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXX
Thanks for writing to HCM

I have gone through your findings in detail.
You have benign findings and it is easily manageable.

You are suffering from mild inflammation of tendons(structure that join bones to muscles)in gluteal region.Changes are both sided involving greater trochanter (bony landmark of femur).Tendinitis occurs when a muscle is overused and pulls on the tendon that attaches it to the bone.
There are also inflammation of bursa in trocanteric region.Bursa is a pad that contains fluid and allows tendons to glide more easily over bony prominences.

You are also suffering from age related mild osteoarthritis changes in hip joint.

Your condition should be manged conservatively.
You should take rest from your activities,especially which are causing the strain.
You can also use ice and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines(NSAIDS) to treat inflammation.
A pack of ice and damp cloth covered bag applied every one to two hours can also provide excellent relief of pain.
You also need physiotherapy in the form of exercise,hot therapy and massage.
Steriod are used in refractory cases.

It is good that there are no fracture or dislocation.

Get well soon.
Hope I have answered your question.

So, should I go to the Orthopedic Dr. and get orders for phsyiotherapy or is a stationary bycicle (one that has chair type seat on it) good enough to do at home?

Hi. I am a thirty five year old female with a history of depression. 2 years ago I had a couple of seizure like episodes while still concious but my mri came out normal. I am 5 feet 3 inches tall, weigh 135 lbs and in overall good health.
My concern is I experience body tremors while asleep that wake up my husband. Im not usually aware of this happening since I am deep asleep. I wonder what would cause that. Since the seizure episodes, my hands shake a lot during waking hours when holding my phone or using keys to open a lock. I would like to know what this means. Thanks.

We have been told that he has approximatively have the semi curricular canals on each side

yes thank you. My husband a 43 y.o. male has been hospitalized a second time noe within the last 3 months. the first time they DX him with guillian barre syndrome. they treated with IVIG for 5 consecutive days and then he remained in hospital a total of 9 days until he could walk and then was discharged. this time, s/s started the same as before. N/T in bilateral feet that migrated quickly up to knees and then tohips and then to elbows and wrists. Then intense burning ache in the joints that followed the same progression. MRI show lesions in the brain, none in spinal cord or brain stem. Lumbar puncture showed only elevated proteins (67). they checked for lymes, encephalitis, meningitis.ets... The first time in Novenmber he last all pheripheral reflexes. This time they sre dull only at this point. I am concerned that they are missing something. My husband states the pain is 9/10, and the only meds that help are Neurontin and toradol. Narcotocs and muscle relaxers do not help at all. We questioned CIDP, MS, transverse myelitis, and they have no answers. They havedone another MRI of brain and brain stem/ neck area. We do not know the results yet, and they are questioning whether or not to do another lumbar puncture... I have requested west nile test and tey just ignore me...I have been an RN for 24 years as well.

She has several large nodules on her thyroid, but her endocrinologist declined to pursue with needle biopsy or surgery due to her age and advanced disease, A.D. what do you think could be the cause of the changes in the top of her skull, indentation. She also has had significant loss in brain mass in past 12 years per MRI studies ren years apart.
