Brief Answer: Significant local bone changes, investigate and rv Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXX, Welcome to Healthcare Magic. Your MRI of spine is indicative of serious local pathology called Cervical spondylitis with Myelopathy. The reversal of normal cervical lordosis indicates local inflammatory condition which can be most likely age related Osteoarthritis or sometimes a manifestation of rhematoid arthritis. The C3-C4, C5-C6 and C7 vertebral spaces are hosting significant bony changes and local dessication and tear of intervertebral discs. You need further evaluation of your bone health in general by Bone desitometry also called Dexascan, an Xray of pelvis and hip to see mineralisation, get Calcium and vitamin D3 levels and also get Complete blood counts and serology test for Rheumatoid arthritis also. You should get revied with these reports to a local rheumatologist and a neurologist for further management. Let me know the reports and your current level of discomfort regarding the symptoms you have told earlier. I hope you will find the advise helpful.

Dear Sir, I have tried to get things moving with the doctors. Nothing. I have numbness now. Can you tell me and order these tests. Should I do acupuncture? it has helped in the past. I was doing good inJune...swimming etc. mY BED IS A PROBLEM. i CAN NOT SIT IN CHAIRS. i NEED HELP AND NO ONE HELPS. i think they are putting me of until i need serious stuff. Should i do chiropractics... my nerulogist just says do what ever until it hurts then do not do it. My neck is pushing nin now instead of out. This really happened when I got the shot and did the mri My feet are bad, My butt muscles do not work, My arms and hands are changing, and my facwe feels lots of pressure. I havd numbness in my upper lip and tongue. As I read your statement, I wonder if this will get better. It did happen after July 18. I was swimming and everything. I wonder if all my acupuncture cause some of this. She is very aggressive and works in that region between the discs. I worry about it. Will this get better. Tonight I wad bent.over rubbing my.neck and I pushed one bone in. It really hurts now. All my bones move a lot. I can change my structure a lot. My.neck the most. Thanks. Other things I should share regarding history. 1) I hurt my neck in 98. Carrying a clarinet bag.2) they said I had thorasic outlet/my should dropped 1 1/2 inch. 3) I was good until 3 years ago. I went through a two year divorce. I was very ok and my face flared up. My doctor did cranial sacrial adjustment made it worse. She would not touch it again. I had my right side not working well. I had acupuncture for all three problems. She was extremely aggressive. I still have a bride from 2002. It is at the base of my neck. And in April I went to a cranial specialist. She fixed my face but she adjusted my entire back. Four days later I got in a truck and things were cut off. Not good. Then two months later my new problem happened after sitting at the beach. My neck popped out. The base of the neck. And then two weeks later had the shot and mri. And now all of this. Will this get better?

Brief Answer: Get advised investigation and follow up Detailed Answer: Hi Ksellis, Welcome to Healthcare Magic. I have received your detailed information. The problem detected in MRI seems to be related to the pathology De novo rather than the old injury to neck. It may be playing additional partly role for symptoms but is not main cause because you were fine till 3 year back. Acupuncture may be counterproductive in your case so avoid wasting time and money in that. Better get the advised work up as I told you previously. Let's see what can be done further after we streamline a more appropriate diagnosis. Take care.

I have R.S.D. & I have not been able to financially keep up with that condition (for me acupuncture , massage therapy & exercise are my preferred therapy) ~ I have been dealing with RSD for over 20 yrs and I am a 46yr female. I have a new situation ... when I eat any amount of food & any type of food I become extremely tired after eating and find myself needing to sleep very soon after. No amount of caffeine or exterior input has helped with this feeling or even being up & moving around doing anything (housework, driving, being out with others, etc) .... need help or suggestion.

My family friend is Mary, and she lives in San Jose, California. She is about 60 years old, Asian, over 5 9 , originally weighed 160+ pounds. At the beginning of this year, Mary experienced extreme dizziness, lack of appetite, and vomiting. She checked into Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. I am not sure of what tests were ran on her but they could find nothing wrong with her. Mary then tried acupuncture which temporarily relieved her pain. Then she collapsed and she was taken to the Stanford Hospital, where they did a scan on her chest and they said that her lung is of interest. However, they could not find what was causing her lack of appetite. She was again checked into Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. She has been diagnosed with lung cancer; however, the doctors believe that is not causing her lack of appetite and vomiting. At the beginning of the year, she was 160+ pounds. As of this week, she is 110 pounds. Sometime in this year, she had a seizure as well. She has gone through many doctors without any luck as to what is causing this major lack of appetite and vomiting of any food she puts down in her stomach. They brought in an infections specialist and he could not pin anything down. Their family member found on the Internet that tuberculosis was a close fit to her symptoms but they got a brain culture and they found it to be negative. From the looks of it, she has lung cancer and something else mysterious causing her to vomit and not eat. She has started some chemo sessions for lung cancer but at this pace, it s not the lung cancer that is killing her, it s this starvation. The doctors seemed to have focused a great deal on her brain and head, but I wanted to get your opinion on what it could be in her digestive system. They ve tried some various IV fluids but some reacted badly to her liver and even damaged her liver a bit. A nutritionist was brought in yesterday to discuss what she can have, but she just seems to be vomiting everything and even when she only has water in her stomach! I m sorry I don t have the exact details like family history for now but I can get them for you if necessary. If you don t think it involves the digestive system, could you tell me what part of the body you think it could be? Could it be the lung cancer or something really in her head?
