Question: After sleeping on a motel bed for 3 weeks I developed pain in the middle of my right buttock. At first it was not so bad but then became excruciating. When I would get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom I would have to walk with a walking can because my right leg felt like it would buckle under me. Then a Physical Therapist told me while I was sutting to squeeze the muscles in the right buttock tightly, hold for 10 seconds, release and repeat 10 times. After doing this for about a week the pain went away. Now I am sleeping in a different bed again and the pain has returned. It is intense if I lay on my back in bed and raise my right leg straight up. The pain does not go down the back of my leg like sciatica but stays in the middle of my buttock. I also have torn ACL on my right knee. What is wrong and how can it be fixed?

Brief Answer:
ACL related most likely

Detailed Answer:
Hello Dear,
Welcome and thank you for posting your question.

Yes, the ACL on your right knee can affect to exacerbate the pain because to move your knee you tend to use more the intermedius buttocks muscle and when it doesn't rest enough it can ache or maybe even get a bit strained.

Since the exercise that you did earlier was helpful, then I would suggest to redo it, but also consider total rest and ice cubes in the pain area. You can take also Ibuprofen or Ketoprofen for the pain, always after eating. Do not forget to eat food with calcium and drink a lot of water.

I would also suggest to get an MRI done of your knee just to recheck, and also a muscle ultrasound of your buttock.

Hope my advice will help.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to post them.

Regards,
Dr. Eni

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.

My nine month old has unilateral hearing loss and as a result of an MRI we have been told that he has deformities of the semi curricular canals on both the left and right side. I understand the hearing loss and the implications.What I don't understand is what will the likely long term implications be as a result of the semi circular canal deformities. 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.

My mother is 89 and on hospice care for advanced A.D. she has developed, over past year, an indentation on the top of her skull running left to right about three inches back from the front of the scalp. 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.
