Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.com. First of all i would like to know how was the TB confirmed. Was a biopsy done. In some one who is 67 years old other caused are osteoporosis. If some one is getting nocturnal back pain we have to rule out metastasis also. Regarding the diet. as most medicines cause gastritis avoid spicy foods. Take a high protein diet. Add a vitamin called B long to the medicines to reduce the side effects of the ATT medicnes. Most important is to take a complete course of treatment for TB if confirmed. Bye

Hello Doctor My son,11 years old has been diagonised of Pott s disease after his D7 vertibrae had been conusmed by TB germs. There is compresion on his spine as his doctor found from MRI and related CT scan and biopsies.My son has been recovering in his weight and comfort. After 7 weeks bed rest he is normal now in movements inside the flat. He uses brace although. The. Surgeon wanted to do a surgery to reduce the compression. I saw the MRI,there is a compression.But visibly no sign is seen and since he is coming back to his normal posture, should he need the surgery? Please reply.

30 years ago my right arm was injured by having a canopy door (for a pickup truck) collapse on a previous scar - which had completely healed for more than 15 years. 5 months after the accident, I was diagnosed with a condition called reflex sympathetic dystrophy (now called chronic regional pain syndrome). I m looking for published papers on the use of a drug called guinethadine, as I m going to college now and want to write a paper comparing the results between the use of electric shock (WWI - Yelland) and guinethadine. Can you help me?
