Avatar n tn Who in the US is best for repair of a MRI found gluteus minimus tear? Also bursists in the same area on my left side. Problems started a year ago. I prefer a doctor on the East Coast.
Avatar m tn Myofascial pain or trigger points in the Gluteus medius muscle and Piriformis muscles can cause pain in the buttock area which may radiate to thighs. Stretching the muscle increases the pain. Pain can be due to nerve compression which can be both spinal and superficial. In the superficial nerve compression, lateral femoral cutaneous nerve that comes from the hip area gets pinched. This condition is called meralgia paresthetica and is often due to weight gain or wearing tight clothes and belts.
Avatar m tn m not sure if not having enough protein is contributing to me not losing weight. I hear people talk about how they lose a pound a week and the such, but I've run 5 miles a day for 5 days straight for 1 month and have only lost 1-2 lbs. What am I doing wrong?!
Avatar m tn This condition is called meralgia paresthetica and is often due to weight gain or wearing tight clothes and belts. Losing some weight or wearing loose clothes and belts often helps relieve the pain/numbness/tingling. Also injection of lignocaine (anesthetic agent) at the site or applying a local pain relief gel or spray also helps. Please discuss with your doctor. Treatment will depend on the cause. Take care!
Avatar n tn After 13 years of pain, I finally found out that I have a Gluteus medius tear and a labral tear. I have found a doc in Chicago (Dr. Domb)who does GM tears and a doc in Colorado ( Dr.Philipon) who does labral tears. Prior to this, every doctor told me I had radiated pain coming from my spine. I no longer run (30 years of running) and don't lift weighs (10 yrs ) either. I now hurts to just walk, stand. etc. I can't put weight on my right side going up steps.

1281603 tn?1283798699 To add, the injections should be administered in the gluteus medius or gluteus minimus with proper needle length and no more than 5 ml injected into the site. As an RN, I can proudly say I never discolored or damaged any bottoms giving these injections.
Avatar f tn I am 69 yr old female, diagnosed with partial tears of right and left gluteus medius and right hamstring tearsby MRI. Have had pain in LEFT gluteus for past year treated with 2 steroid injections for trachanteric bursitiis and one steriod injection for piriformis syndrome (before MRI) with no effect. Have had PT and left hip capsule injection for osteoarthritis in attempt to eliminate pain. Had PRP injection in April with no change.
Avatar f tn i use to have a bubble butt. I noticed after the birth of my 4th child, and losing 15 lbs of pregnancy weight, the bubble was no longer there but still had a perky nice shape. Fast forward to 13 years later, and suffered a family tragedy. It has been 2 years and I'm slowly coming out if a fog. I did maintain a workout schedule, (it saved me), throughout. Approximately 2 months ago, I lost my appetite. This is the first time I have ever experienced this.
503893 tn?1292099833 l1-2 laminectomy and l3-4 microdiscectomy - both for herniated disks) my right hip pain has started again - that ice pick pain in the hip radiating down my leg. My new PM doc did an MRI - bi-lateral hips and the report says for the (L) HIP Finding of a labral tear, with assoc paralabral cyst. the tear is anterior superior.; mild trochanteric bursitis, minimal tendinopathy involving the gluteus medius tendon. the gluteus medius tendon is attenuated.
Avatar n tn I need some help - I was injured in a rear-end collision that instead of whip lashing me - twisted me severly to the right. After X-rays revealed some problems and pain began to increase more and more - I had an MRI done. It showed "minimal C5-6 retrolisthesis with mild underlying disk bulge without spinal canal stenosis. L4-5 Minimal disk bulge. Mild facet and ligamentous hypertrophy.
Avatar f tn The gluteus medius lies underneath the gluteus maximus and the gletus minimus lies underneath the gluteus medius. The piriformis starts at your sacrum and stretches out to your femur. Tie an elastic band around your ankles such as an exercise band or rubber tubing. Make sure there is resistance with your feet hip-width apart. Start with low resistance and progressively work your way up to heavier resistance. Stand with your hands on your hips and feet hip-width apart.
Avatar n tn There is also mild edema within the gluteus medius and minimus tendons and edema around the gluteus maximus. There is also thickening of the gluteus minimus and medius. Everything is bilateral except the fluid signal is greater on the right hip. I have limited diffuse scleroderma and am wondering if this may be an autoimmune response. If so, would surgery help?
Avatar n tn I recently had surgery to repair a complete rupture of my Gluteus Medius Hip Tendon. Three holes were drilled in my hip bone and the tendon was located and sutured into these holes. A pig skin graft was used to help secure the sutures. Also I had a Bursectomy and a bone spur removed. I would like to hear comments from anyone else who has gone through this. How long post surgery to be pain free? How is walking and climbing stairs?
Avatar f tn I might question the utility of repairing the gluteus medius in an 83 year old, I suspect there are degenerative changes to be found in the gluteal muscle of most patients over 80. Certainly, if she has not had PT, I dont think there is a problem to starting it at this point, since she is a year post op. I would also recommend new Xrays of her hip to see if she is arthritic.
Avatar f tn He does walk now but does have paralysis in his gluteus maximus, hamstrings, calves and feet. He has also lost all muscle in his calves and gluteus maximus and his toes are fused together. My husband has to use a catheter to urinate. With technology the way it is today, are there any surgeries out there that could correct any of his paralysis or use of a catheter to urinate?
Avatar n tn for awhile now, maybe a couple of months i have weirdly have pains in my gluteus maximums and my very lower abdomens kinda where my hip bones are but in the middle section between my hip bones. both pains (shooting) happen at the same time. its really wierd to me.
Avatar n tn I am 9 weeks pregnant and this is my first pregnancy and instead of gaining weight I am losing weight. I haven't had any nausea or vomiting in the past 2 days but I am still losing weight. I am scared that this could affect my baby. Is there something wrong or is this normal ?
Avatar f tn My average healthy weight is 60kg and I'm 161cm tall, now I'm 75kg which is overweight. I just finished the 3rd month yesterday. Is there a way to lose weight without hurting the baby? Cuz it's not healthy for me to stay in this weight while I'll gain 12kg more while pregnancy. Nothing hard or hurtful, walking is hard here since I'm in saudi Arabia and the heat reach 40c. I'm looking for healthy diet that won't hurt the baby if I do it.
Avatar n tn Safe weight loss is considered to be 1 to 2 lbs/week (1 lb = 0.453 kg), so the most you should lose in one month would be about 10 lbs or 4.53 kg... You'd need about 7 weeks to lose 15 kg or 33 lbs, safely, if you work at it diligently.
Avatar m tn I was wondering if any of the prescriptions I take, may be making it harder for me to lose weight? In fact i've gained about 45lbs since last year. This year some of my prescriptions have changed. I am now taking 60 mg of Paxil last year it was 40 mg. I am taking lisinopril and diclofenac and 50 more mg of atenolol. I believe I am getting about the same amount of exersise as I was last year if not more. Thank you.

Losing weight in a healthy way is important for maintaining the glow of your skin. Eat lots of fruits, dark green leafy vegetables, fruits and consume less of potato, sweetened and processed foods.
