Question: I was lifting weights the other day, which I am used to doing, and i felt a pop and sizzle in my back. I thought i just pulled a muscle. But since then, pain in the back, neck, and radiating pain and numbness down my left hand and fingers. Ibuprofen doesn't do much. Still very painful after 5 days. Did I pinch a nerve? What should I do?

Brief Answer:
Avoid further weight lifting

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

It is pinch nerve, it occurs due to pressure, may be the result of repetitive motions. he pressure may be the result of repetitive motions. Or it may happen from holding your body in one position for long periods as in strength gaining exercises.

You should try to avoid further weight lifting till 2 weeks.

Get your xray of cervical spine and lumbosacral spine in AP and Lateral view done and send me the report.

Take aceclofenac+thiocolchicoside and pregabalin by prescription of your local doctor.

Apply hot packs for 30 mins in morning and evening.

I hope it helps.

Thanks.

Dr.Singh.

My 10 yr. old daughter has a T5 compression fracture caused by a lesion of unknown origin. Two biopsies were performed. The first was unsuccessful so the Dr. offered to tx her as if it were Langerhans cell histiocytosis which was the only diagnosis that matched her x-ray according to him; low dose chemo/steroids. We opted for a second biopsy which revealed a inactive infection of unknown origin. She is currently on 500 mg bid of Amox-Clav for 6 weeks and is in a brace. After 2 weeks, of antibiotics and about a month in the brace, she is still waking up in the middle of the night with pain that starts out as a tingling radiating pain that wraps around from her back to her chest and then becomes a stabbing pain. She states her level of pain is about an 8. She has a difficulty time breathing at times, and her sternum seems to be protruding even more. We have been dealing with this since late October 2013. I am confused as to why she is receiving antibiotics for an inactive infection and am wondering what this infection could ve been caused by.
