Avatar f tn In April 2010 I was diagnosed with TB of the spine and put on R-Cinex, Pyzina 750, Ethambutol, Pregabalin and Benadon. Last week after having complained to the doc about 'my nerves becoming brittle', another medicine 'Ciploric 300' was added to the list. Now I have joint pain and think twice before getting up, coz it's such a pain in the ... bum! I feel thirsty all the time (dry mouth in 10 min) and have started forgetting things more often than earlier...like ...
Avatar m tn I've had an abscess or boil on my upper back between my spine and shoulder blade that doesn't seem to be coming to a head but instead drying up or being reabsorbed into the skin. It's about 1 - 2 cm in diameter, pink and a little soft (can feel some fluid inside) but not painful and not getting larger or smaller and I'm having what seems like muscular shooting pain up my neck and down my spine on that same side.
Avatar n tn I had posterior cervical spine surgery a year ago this month and about 2 months ago I noticed a hard knot that had formed on my spine where my incision is. I didn;t think anything about it until another dr of mine had seen it and said i needed to see my surgeon again because she thought it could be a cyst. Has anybody ever experienced this and if so what was it?

Avatar m tn Now, after examining the latest report Dr pant said that there is not possible to take out the psoas abscess and he too concluded that this abscess will be eliminated by the tb drugs. and TB consultant has provided me two types of tb drugs 1. Ethambutol 1200 mg and 2. Isoniazid 300 mg and rifampicin 300mg . He said to have these drugs for 1 and half years. I think these drugs can make me well, isn't it, sir?

Avatar m tn (a pack with 4 diff tabs, 1 in the morn, 2 a\n and 1 in the night) Myoril for 7 days Taylors Brace Doctor was contemplating a surgery and after discussioin with the neuro surgeon, they decided against the surgery since my father was mobile and there was no pain or trouble in walking and started the ATT and mentioned that after 4-6 weeks, a second scan would be required to see the development and then take a call on Surgery.
Avatar m tn I have had a smallish (maybe 2 cm in diameter) skin abscess or infected cyst on my back next to my cervical spine for the last 2 weeks which doesn't seem to be getting bigger or coming to a head (I tried squeezing it thinking it was a pimple at first.) When I touch it, it feels soft/puffy as though there's some fluid under it (same as a gum boil) and it's no longer hot/painful, just itchy sometimes.

Avatar n tn Also monitor your ESR and Complete blood count regularly. Imaging study on periodic basis is important to see the status of spine and also for prognostication. Keep me posted if you have any queries. Bye.

1078123 tn?1255914486 First, they told me he had a pinched nerve on his med-back, between the shoulders, if I can say it like that. They put him on prednisolone. It didn’t help. He was paralyzing slowly in crucial pain, especially partial paralyses on his rear paws but still has sensation. I took him to other hospital and they told me he needs surgery. The test and surgery cost around $4700, which I couldn’t afford it. I looked for, called and wrote to different pets organizations, asking for financial aid.
Avatar n tn in a perfect world a root canal and crown or an implant would be ideal depending on how badly damaged the tooth is but these procedures can cost around 1500 to 5000 depending on where you live. you need to see a dentist right now to evaluate your situation and go through your options. if you have a local dental school or low income clinic in your area you might want to check them out. good luck!
Avatar m tn Hi, I got an abscess on my back in between spine and the right side of the hip. It is as big as a palm size. The doctor suspected that it might be a Tuberculosis and at first I took a PPD test which was positive and then sputum test which was negative. Then the doctor advised to start the TB course therefore I started taking Ethanbutol, pyrazanamide, benedon, etc..
Avatar f tn I had gained weight, seizures and unable to walk went to another doctor which diagnosed me with cervical myelopathy after two years I could move around but still have a lot of problems with no doctor agreeing. I now get abscess everyWhere the test comes out like pneumonia bacteria. I think I have or had a CFS leak , who should I go to to confirm this and see if I still have a leak? I need help its been three years and the damage I worry will get worse if there still a leak.
Avatar f tn Hi, I need some help understanding the conclusion on my MRI. I don't know if it's serious, minor, or somewhere in between. I'm also trying to figure out if it looks like there is another surgery in my future. I will find out more from the doctor, but this is workers compensation doctor and I'm beginning to feel like I'm not getting the care I need. A brief history of my problem began in August 2012. I fell at work lifting boxes. An MRI revealed a bone fragment at my L4/L5 level.

1044526 tn?1254518145 I am not entirely clear on where the mass (what location of the spine, what part of the vertebral column it is coming from) but there are several potential possibilities. While in general the rate of growth of the mass does indicate some potential possibilities versus others, some typically slow-growing masses can grow fast, and other typically fast-growing masses can grow relatively slowly.

Avatar f tn I have a knot on the right base side of my head and a small mass under it, I have had headaches for almost 2 years. These headaches occur 4-5 times a week. I have been to the family doctor, an ENT, physical theropy, and a neurologist none of them can figure it out. However none of them are listening to me when I say my headaches start at that knot on my neck. Does anyone have any ideas?

Avatar f tn I have a small, painful lump ,about the size of nickel, on the left side of my head towards the back. It is not getting any bigger. When I press on it there is string of sharp, shooting pain leading to a spot on the top of my head. It is the exact same spot every time. Wondering what this could be.

Avatar f tn I have had a recent MRI scan of my brain and neck that shows a 4th legion in the brain and since my last scan a year ago a syrinx in my spine between 5th and 6th disc due to a protruding disc that has got worse. I have now today been told that the legions do not look like ms at all and the syrinx would be due to degenerate damage and if I get numb arms and legs or pins and kneedles I should go to the emergency dept and probably get a shunt put in.
1521268 tn?1291127479 In some people the occipital bone at the back of the skull has a protuberance. This is a normal finding and comes up in X-ray. Another normal finding is a protruding spine of cervical vertebra due to bad posture, again detected by X-ray.
Avatar m tn I have noticed 1 lump on my neck (not the same one as before). the lump is at the back of my neck, up by the top to the left. The lump is small, pea size, it's sort of hard, it doesn't seem to move that much when pressed, it doesn't hurt that much when I press it down, but I'm sure it did burn a little when I did it not long ago. I am 17, male... Can someone help me out a little ? thanks..
Avatar n tn My cat has a huge lump on her back. It is where she had a bite/scratch (dont know which). We noticed the mark last Wednesday because she would meow a bad meow when we pet her there. She has fleas if that is relevent. And she had gotten outside the same night we found the mark. So we dont know if it is from the fleas, herself, or another animal. I just need to know what is wrong with her and why there is a huge lump right along her spine.
