Brief Answer:
gradual treatment by chiropractor and physiotherapy is the main role of management of apical spinal scoliosis rather than immediate reductions which may aggravate the neuropathic pain causing such facial and feet tremors

Detailed Answer:
Hi i am Dr Ahmed Aly
thanks for using healthcaremagic site ,
I had gone through your question and understand your concerns ..

In my opinion you may lower the number of chiroparactor adjustements but not stopping it completely as it plays a main role in the reduction of your apex .

Apical scoliosis of your vertebrae may need more time . i recommend wearing a scoliosis belt , spinal straightening exercises , physiotherapy , hot massages with topical gels and even yoga helps .

Try painkillers like advil tab twice after meals , pregabalin 400 mg once , B12 vitamin supplementation , muscle relaxants , steroid injections are effective for most cases .

Avoid overweight , heavylifting , vigorous movements , bad sleeping or sitting postures .

If pain persists for more than 6 months i may suggest a new MRI scan and frequent follow up Xrays on your spine and a neurosurgeon point of view for further evaluation of minor endoscopic intervention or even surgical intervention if needed for best management .

Wish you good health,
Any further clarifications feel free to ask.

I was given a urine test today. The test showed positive for opiate use. To the best of my knowelege I have not taken anything or eaten anything that would cause my test to be hot(positive). The only pain medication I have taken today was 600 mg. of ibuphrophen and 150 mg. of pregabalin for my neuropathy. I also am taking 750 mg. of levofloxacin and0.4 mg. of tamsulosin. the only thing exotic that I have eaten was a multi-grain fiber bar from kashai. I need to know what possibly could have my test come up hot. Thank you for your assistance.

I have been noticing tiny bubbles in my urine for the past couple of weeks. During this time, I ran out of my blood pressure meds and went about 8 days before getting the refill. During that time I gained about 8 lbs water weight. My hands and feet were swelling and also in the am my eyes were very puffy. At the end of the day I really had no ankles due to the swelling there. I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, however it does not explain my blood work which showed the blood antigens were high and also the inflamation. At first they thought I had Lupus, but not enough symptoms to confirm, so I was told that I do not have lupus but I do have fibromyalgia. Since then I have noticed on a couple of occations that I have had ranauds symptoms in my toes. I have also noticed a very faint redness across my nose and in my cheek area under my eyes, but no redness around my eyes (I kinda look like a racoon with white eyes). I am currently taking Lyrica and Cymbalta along with my Lisinopril/Hctz. I guess my question is could this new symptom with the bubbles in the urine be an indicator that I do have Lupus?
