Avatar f tn Thanks for the reply. I'm waiting for the results of a bone density scan. Also my doctor wants me to have an MRI scan too. I'm taking pain killers at night so I can get some sleep and an anti inflammatory . Ankylising spondylitis is a possibility too as it is in my family.

1293859 tn?1272331280 A few weeks ago I started having back pain in between my shoulder blades. Then I got the shingles on the left side of my upper back and down my left arm. I took myself to the doctors and the doctor requested an MRI (not exactly sure why, still, I think it was due to the back pain). The MRI revealed an "enlarged ascending aorta." I was notified the next day and was told that I needed to schedule a CT scan for further evaluation.I was able to schedule one on Friday April 30th.

Avatar m tn I have had this left upper back pain for 5 months now and this medical community with all the claims it has, hasn't been able to find the reason for my pain. We are talking about being in 2015 USA and not 1015 Timbuktu, Mali. I have had MRI of the thoracic spine, CT scan, X-rays, echocardiogram and lots of blood test, but still nobody can make a right diagnosis and they have come up with ridiculous diagnosis.
Avatar n tn I have had numbness and tingling in my upper left back for 9months. In the last 3months or more I have started having the numbness and tingling in mainly my left arm and leg. I have had a MRI on my head. I didn't not have any tumors or any signs of MS. Last week the done a EGG and nerve scan and it showed that I did not have any nerve damage or anything. The doctor said he thought it was just Tendinitis. I am afraid I am going to drop my baby at times when it gets so bad.
Avatar f tn I have been dealing with mid to upper back pain for over 8 months. I have been seeing a D.O and after months of maniuplation with really no relief we finally we able to get an mri. The MRI didn't really show anything significant except a slight bluging disc in I think my T-4. I was on pain meds hydrocodone 500/5 1 a day and valium 10mg-30mgs. I am not taking the hydro anymore and am tapering off of the valium, now at 10mg, My question is why am I in pain? The pain migrates some.

Avatar n tn My husband was diagnosed with a 4x3cm cyst on the back of his brain when they were performing a MRI on his upper back. He has had a constant headache for 3 months, vomiting in the middle of the night, tingling in his arms and hands, upper back pain and lower back pain. He has a herniated disk in his L4, L5 and his pain has gotten progressively worse. He thought he had more herniated disks in the top of the back but there aren't any.

Avatar n tn I recently had a Echocardiogram and my doctor told me that I had a reading of 4.2 in the upper aorta. He wanted me to do a CT scan. Is 4.2 outside the average limits. I am 44 yrs old, 5'10" and 191lbs, medium build. Also, I don't want to do the CT scan because of the radiation concerns (told it was equivalent to 400-500 xrays), and requested an MRA. He said that it was to hard to get an insurance company to approve an MRI and said I would need an MRA anyway.

Avatar m tn my mattress isnt the best, though i do wake up feeling very stiff in my upper back, but still throughout the day my lower back hurts and the upper back isnt as stiff, some days my legs feel just as dead or heavy just as much as my arms and shoulders
Avatar m tn ve had migraines, severe neck pain, bad vision, and the last year has developed into extreme back pain, upper and lower, my hip feels like it will fall out of its socket and has been hurting so badly that I cant lie on my right side anymore and my shoulder on right side also severely painful. Been to many doctors who reported nerve pain, artheritis, but xrays show nothing! It is so discouraging and they discourage surgery because they can find nothing wrong.
