About the Kelly H 1999 answer you gave she was talking about Osteophytes in neck, and headaches, tingling in hands, arms. I too get a really bad headache side of head. Ice pick type and I feel it is from my neck. It happens when I turn my neck, no warning just snap , intense pain then it feels like my brain is bleeding. I have been diagnosed anterior osteophytes narrowing c5 c6 and they did the nerve conduction on hands comes out carpel tunnel but I feel it is all because of my neck. Headache also.
Thanks and suggestions if you have the time.
Hello, I am not sure you would be able to give me any advice or not but it is worth a try. I am 47 yrs of age, female. about three months ago I had sudden sharp pain in my lower right side, thought maybe I had moved wrong but it kept getting worse and then shooting down into my leg. I went to the ER and was admitted to the hospital as my blood work showed a small infection and they thought might be apendisities (spelled wrong not a strong point of mine) the infection went away but pain got worse. They felt it was the sciatic nerve and sent me home and I recieved therapy for 6 weeks. Well... the pain is still there, but has changed. It now covers the whole area of my lowerback, hips and sometimes into my thighs. I have good days where I can deal with the pain, bad and worse days.
Hello, I don't know if you will be able to answer this or not, but here goes. I have a syrinx on my spine from T7 to T10. The doctor I see doesn't seem concerned and feels no monitoring is needed. I am a nurse so I realize that the internet is a wonderful tool for information but also alot of misinformation. However, what I have read in regard to this suggests my doctor is wrong and that monitoring is suggested. I don't know how long it's been there, and I have several issues I'm dealing with right now with my back but I don't really think it's related to the syrinx. My question I suppose is whether or not I should insist that we monitor the syrinx?
Hello, I was reading your answer to another's question about right sided pain. I have had almost continuous pain,cramping,"unrested" feeling in my entire right side for about 6 years now..shoulder,arm, wrist, side, buttocks, thigh, calf, ankle. Anyways, I saw in your answer that you asked about other conditions, specifically Lupus. Well 2 yrs ago I was diagnosed with discoid lupus. Could this have anything to do with the pains that no doctor can diagnose? Thank you.

Sorry need to post this in 2 postings, You seem to look at things from a detailed perspective, I need help, I have sought out every doctor in the area, they seem to throw medications at me for individual symptoms and never find the problem. I have been just about every form of psych testing possible. Several different Doctors/Psych Office's later all they can tell me is what it is not. They say, well your not bi-polar, your not schitzo, your not manic, you are not depressed, you do have adhd symptoms, but we don't think that's the problem ............

Thanks for all the info. I thought I was the only one with strong correlation between eating and "skipped beats". I test totally healthy except for the AFIB after eating (4 hospital admissions in last 2 years). Starts from immediate to within 30 min of eating (depending on type of food (ie yoghurt vs meats), and stops suddenly abt 10 hours later. Works every time with me. My MD / heart specialist doesn't seem to have an answer. I use cold (ie ice drink or step into the cold swimming pool) to STOP the afib. Seems to work quite well if the afib is not too strong.
Any thoughts? Thanks, Bob
