Hello. I am 47 years old. I had a ACDF in 2005 and didn t have any problems with my neck until March this year. It started off with with a stiff neck after hurting my neck, then burning pain down my left arm, all the way down, and weak hand. I also had burning pain in my left scapular. The burning is now constant, causing terrible frequent headaches and burning pain in my right arm. I feel my head is so heavy on my neck and that at times I need to support my left shoulder from the intense heaviness and burning. My CT scan from Tuesday has come out with: C4/c5 disc osteophyte complex which indents the ventral aspect of the cord resulting in mild canal narrowing with a residual AP diameter of 9mm. Mild bilateral unconvertebral spurring. Mild bilateral neural foraminal narrowing. C5 /c6 anterior fussing noted. Anterior osteophyte indents the ventral aspect of the cord and result in mild canal narrowing with a residual AP diameter of 9mm. Bilateral unconvertebral spurring resulting in mild bilateral neural foraminal narrowing. C6/C7 anterior fusion noted. Bilateral unconvertebral spurring resulting in mild bilateral neural foraminal narrowing. Can you tell me what this means in layman s terms. Will this require surgery?

Hi, I have this pain on the left side of my neck for more than a month now. Usually when I look up or I move my neck fast. The ganglion and down the ear area feels swollen and very tight. When I press my fingers against it it hurts. Today I have feeling worse. My whole throat area feels swollen and tight. Now both sides of my neck feel swollen and I had to come home from work early because I was feeling very tired. My whole body hurts, specially my back, head and neck. I slept the whole afternoon but Im steel feeling bad. My eyes are red and I feel them very tired. I have to go to work tomorrow at 6am. Im a foreign worker and I dont have a family doctor so I have to go to the Emergency service at the hospital. But I dont want to go just for a cold. I do feel very bad though. What should I do?

I have been told I have neuropathy in my feet from the RA which is quite painful at times. I take Plaquenil for the RA and Gabapentin for the neuropathy. However, my greatest problem is my left knee. I developed a cyst behind it and it has been drained once so far. I am finding more and more that the pain and swelling in the knee is getting worse. If I sit for more than a half hour at a time, the knee starts to lock. I wear a brace when it is very painful and stiff. Is there anything else I can do?

I'm a 47-year old female, 5'6, 200 lbs (way over weight, I know!), type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, hypothyroidism, tachycardia, fibromyalgia, neuropathy, and hiatel hernia. Endoscopy and colonoscopy in 2008, normal other than hiatel hernia. Told to repeat in 10-years. As far back as I can remember, I have never had regular B/Ms. For the past month, I have been in severe pain in the URQ region. I have had x-rays, US, Hida-Scan, and CT. Dx, is constipation in right colon (area of pain). This past weekend, my dr put me on a liquid diet and typical colon cleanse for f/u x-ray. I am still having serve pain and have not had a B/M in 5 days. Dr said to take Dulcolax every other day until I have B/M every day and to take Miralax every day. F/u in 2 week, said may have to repeat colonoscopy if pain is still there. Does it sound like my doctor is doing everything necessary to determine source of pain? I am miserable! Please help!

Hi there,in 2006 I was seven months pregnant,one day I came down with my first migraine it was the worst head pain I had ever felt.I woke up the next morning and was completley blind in my left eye my doctor treated me with B12 shots and referred me to a neurologist.A fewi days later the bottoms of my feet started to feel like the were numb and tingling, after about a week I was compltley numb from the bottoms of my feet to under my chest. At this point I could not use the washoom or walk so I went to emerg. I had an MRI done wich showed from what they told me showed bright spots on my spine and they suspected MS. After about four weeks my vision came back and I was slowly able to walk on my own again. Six months after my daugter was born I had a follow up MRI not at the same hospital where the first MRI was, that Mri found no lesions the second time around ( I don t understand what happened there) Then last year some of the numbess and tingling in my legs and hand came back but it was almost unoticeable and only last for a few weeks, my Neuro had me go for another MRI which showed 1 new lesion on my spine and they still could not positvley diagnos me with MS. Now for the last four months I have been have severe cramping in my legs and back, electric shocks in my neck and face, tingling and numbness and a few other things. Is it possible that something else is going on with me? I have been tested for so many other things and everything comes up negative. Oh I forgot to mention my vision loss in my left eye was optic neuritis I beleve of the disc.
