doctor1 MD

I understand your situation. most likely it may be nerve root pain if the bullet touching your nerve. Consult physiatrist if any nerve root block or epidural block can be tried. I dont know where it is seated but if we see your images we may be able to tell you if that can be removed.

Hi Doctor,

My mom aged 54 has severe thigh pain and leg pain. Initially it started with right leg and now slowly on left leg. Pain is severe during night time. Initially we though it might be vericose problem but doctor has ruled out. She was asked to do blood test 3 weeks back for vitamin b12 and vitamin d. The result came as vitamin b12 is 234 and vitamin d is 6.59. After seeing the result, doctor prescribed for inj nuroseizz for 5 days and thereafter weekly once for 4 weeks and once for 6 months. For vitamin d, he had given D rise 2000 iu daily twice for 1 month.cap liquI d3 once a week for 8 weeks and once a month 12 months.
So, far it's been 3 weeks over. Her leg pain got only 5% better but when the pain comes, it is still very severe. As she cries during night due to severe pain, I took her to couple of orthopedic for their opinion and they gave their own medication of pain killer and suggesting that it could be due to vitamin deficiency etc. But no one is suggesting for any kind of test which could properly diagnoise her problem. My only concern is though she has that severe pain, why doctors are not asking to do other test. I really wonder if vitamin deficiency could cause this severe pain during night. Morning she has dull aches. I am without any clue what to do. As yesterday she had severe pain, I had given pain killer which one of the orthopedic suggested nimdis p. And today I took to another orthopedic who told don't worry and prescribed carnisure 500 and nucoxia mr 8.
I am now really worried and not sure if taking all these medications will help her. Should I wait or have to act upon by consulting somebody else before it gets worsen further more.

Her pain has been there for more than 3 months occurring severely during night time.

Apart from that 4 days back she had panic type of attack where she was not able to open mouth and speak. I made her to rest and after few hours in early morning, she was able to talk. I am really worried about her health and need guidance on what should I do and what type of test I should go for.
Can I just leave it and see for another 2 weeks if her conditions improve? Or should I go for neurologist? Please help me doctor.

Hello, my name is Michael Boswell. I am a 22 year old part-time student living with my mother. I am writing because I have been to one gastroenterologist before, and they couldn t quite seem to find the answers I m looking for. At the age of 16, I started taking a weight lifting supplement ( creatine pill form) and the day I took 4 of them like what was told on the back of the bottle, I could already tell I wasn t able to hold in my urine, I couldn t even sit down for my football meeting because I had to go to the bathroom to urinate. I then struggled for 2 years through the remainder of High School with severe chronic pain , I went and saw my family doctor who then told me to go see a specialist, and I had two colonscopies and endoscopy done. The gastroenterologist agreed there was something causing my irritation, but couldn t figure out what it was. I had blood work done, and everything came back for Crohns Disease , and they then labeled me with IBS. I m asking for help because I m at a dead end, I still suffer EVERY day with some sort of symptom, whether it be irritation and pain in my stomach, or when I feel a Bowel Movement coming on the urgency that I have because I know I will not be able to hold it in...the medication they had given me worked, but with other symptoms arising. I was prescribed Hyosyamine ER 0.375 MG, and Paroxetine HCL 20 MG. I took them as told on the bottle, and I would RARELY have a BM through the week, but instead I would have one full day (Saturday) of me having to sit on the toilet. I have read that there are no cures, which is very discouraging, this disease or whatever you want to call it, has taken the happiness and normality out of my life, and has replaced it with anger and no hope. I am hoping there is someone that can please help me...
