Neck pain osteoporosis

Common Questions and Answers about Neck pain osteoporosis


Avatar f tn You are so young. I was just diagnosed with osteoporosis in the right neck. 5 years ago I just had osteopenia. I'm 65. Degeneration of the lower spine is common with people my age. Revolution: the osteoporosis is not "acting up". The chiropractor is very gentle and helps me greatly whenever I have any pain. I don't know what I will do when he retires. I've been going to him for years. I have been in 6 auto accidents. So I'm lucky to be alive.
5211527 tn?1365185765 I dont really know very much about this condition,but my mom and grand mothers both had Osteoporisis severely and could I have inherited it from them? I have had alot of pain in my neck and area below feels like a bump/hump or hard place and I am worried.It looks like my neck and back starting to curve. I have always took multivitamins and had plenty of calcium and vitamin D in my diet so I thought that would be a good preventative from getting Osteoporosis.

Avatar f tn I am having a lot of back pain, now 4 years later. Could it be that my back is getting worse? Should I have another MRI done, or should I leave it alone? I also have systemic lupus and Sjogrens, and was found to be osteopenic at age 21; at age 27, was osteoporotic in some areas of the hip and thoracic spine and femoral neck.
Avatar m tn known negative drug interactions with Fosamax and Piroxicam. Is the pain a result of this and is there a better treatment for osteoporosis without these side effects ? Thanks for your time.
1485696 tn?1312409127 Seems like I have some off the wall symptoms compared to others. I have been dealing with neck pain again for the past week, which has gotton unbearable and radiating the past two days. No new neuro symptoms with it, but this is exactly what my first MS episode presented itself as, except it was on my right side, and this time it is on my left. I have a call into my doc, waiting to hear back to see if she wants me to start on steriods or not.
Avatar f tn Hello, Neck pain can be due to many causes.It can be due to injury, a mechanical or muscular problem, a trapped nerve caused by a bulge in one of the discs between the vertebrae, or from arthritis of the neck. Sometimes it can be due to slipped disc, brittle bones (osteoporosis), deformed natural curvature of the spine (scoliosis) and, very rarely, structural damage due to tumors or infection.
Avatar f tn Felt burst of pain at left base of neck. Think I blacked out momentarily. Shaking badly. But because the pain was just a burst, I thought I was OK. I contacted my neurosurgeon's office and was sent for a neck x-ray, which showed no fracture. Within 24-36 hours of accident developed severe neck pain in left side of neck; head tilted and turned far right. Feb - Aug: Because the neurosurgeon said I had whiplash, I turned to a D.O.
Avatar m tn Day 4 of intense headache and now severe neck pain. My guess is we're off to the ER shortly, as it's gotten pretty bad. Sigh - more med changes!
Avatar m tn iam feeling pain in my neck and it is since one year but it comes seldom and not frequently. Last day i went to docotr he take the exray and the report is as fellow The C/6- C/7 and C/5 C/6 disc spaces are diminished in the height with associated spindly-degenerative changes. Gernralized diminished bone density of the osseous structures. No abnormal cervical bony ribs.
Avatar m tn I also have had cervical neck pain for years now. I have been diagnosed also with osteoporosis. I get pain in my upper palate and left throat area. Also pain in the gland in my neck left side. The ENT consultant that I saw a few years ago said the pain in my neck could be arthritis of the hyoid bone. I also have sinus problems which is why I get pain in my upper palate. I have a corticosteriodal nasal spray which I use each night.
Avatar n tn Recently, I have been really experiencing more joint pain than usual in my shoulders, hands, knees and jaw (7months of pain). I get bone pain and also shooting pains (which have no diagnosis). My thumb knuckles are starting to pop out to the side. I have a bad back (no cushion between 4 and 5 + more) and have experienced pain like no other. A Baker's Cyst also popped up last month at an also bad knee (torn ligaments never corrected).
Avatar f tn I now have osteoporosis, moderate scoliosis, arthritis in neck and hips (one hip is higher then the other), adult ricketts( ostiomylitis), Fibromyalgia, DDD. I have been on many meds and alternative treatment which have helped some but Iam concerened with dependency with my current meds that I have been on for 1 year. My DR. told me I would have to be on them for the rest of my life and I am concerened due to his age, how would My Dr. continue my care after he retires or God forbid , pass away.
Avatar n tn The pain I started with before the surgery is exactly the same now 6 months later. I had head and neck pain before surgery now it has increased to numbness in my arms and now a little in my legs and feet. I have gone back to the surgeon and he basically said there is nothing else he can do and has refused to see me any more. He is one of the best surgeons and nobody wants to question his work.
1052851 tn?1307744760 I have severe osteoporosis, my bones are the age of a woman 87, I am 45. This illness was discovered following a grand mal seizure in which I passed on, and in order to revive me, my spouse hit my chest and back alternately so I would breath, which worked, but ended up breaking 4 vertibrae, which also wasnt spotted by the hospital, and it wasnt until a week following I insisted on an xray, then tah-dah. Anyhow, I often break bones, primarily my toes and fingers.
Avatar f tn She has osteoporosis, COPD, one functioning kidney, high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, anxiety, and it has been suggested that she have stints put in her heart. Her neck started out stiff with severe pain-this was around 8 or 9 weeks ago, just last week she was told that she had a broke neck. We are concerned that she would not make it through surgery.
Avatar m tn Osteoporosis is a disease of the skeleton, characterized by diminution of the bony mass and deterioration of micro bony architecture, increasing to the fragility of the bones and the risk of fractures. In summary it is possible to be defined as a diminution of the quality of the bone that it causes that he is fragile and becomes porous and easy to fracture. That one appears slowly and can be developed without symptoms, until fractures appear micros that produces pain, incapacity and fractures.
974371 tn?1424656729 Different PT and they have been basically doing heat and ultrasound, no improvement and I now have pain across lower back, over both hips and a burning pain on the right side of my mid back. I am also going for acupuncture but nothing is helping. On a CT scan of my abdomen a few months ago, they saw a lesion on my left kidney, don't seem concerned but have another ultrasound this week. My Alk Phos has also been somewhat elevated. GI doc is going to test again in December.
Avatar m tn I've written a question before about the almost unbearable pain in my neck, sholder,and arm pain and got a great response from Dr Sharma. I had 2 seperate cervical disc surgeries with a fusion done about 25 years ago and another about 4 years ago.Recently I had terrible pain and they put me in hospital did MRI and said that the disc were degenterive and Broken down.I did not really understand the results but I just did what they said and followed up with my primary doc.
Avatar n tn I have severe neck pain, shoulder pain and headache. I have swelling in my arms and has been very painful for me for quite a long time. I have undergone physiotherapy - 18 sessions of hot packs, electric stimulation, cold packs, massage etc. Now the doctor has suggested DRX9000 as there is very less improvement.
Avatar n tn 1)Osteoporosis 2) straightening of the cervical and lumbar spine, and 3) degenerative arthritis and degnerative disc disease with prominent bone spurs. I cannot understand why I have osteoporosis because I have been on estrogen therapy for over ten years, exercise moderately,drink plenty of milk and take a daily multi-vitamin supplement. Additionally, I had a bone density test in June of '98 and was told that I had "the bones of a thirty-year-old.
Avatar m tn My husband fractured his neck - c7 and has severe arthritis in his neck - how wil this effect his healing process? I am concerned about it a future break because of the arthritis, too. Will future strain be a concern, because he is a farmer a does alot of lifting - will that have to change after the healing process?
Avatar m tn 1- Please forget about your neck, it s totally unrelated and soon it will resolve spontaneousely. 2- Where is the compresion fracture about which you did a research ! maybe you were exagerating ! 3- Now it is too clear to me that your pain on walk is related most most probably with a vertebral listhesis (sliding). You should do a dynamic view X-ray (lumbar flexion and extension). If Listhesis is confirmed, go for a neurosurgeon who will fix with arthrodesis.
Avatar n tn She does have scoliosis, osteoporosis and stenosis of her lower spine. I can't figure out if it could be her neck movements that are causing her eyes to react this way or vice versa. Tomorrow, we have an appointment with her eye doctor.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am 28 year old male. I had recurrent neck pains for a long time. On doing medical examination I was diagnosed with Osteoporosis in Spine and Osteopenia in whole body which are causing me a lot of pain and suffering. The reason behind this is hypogonadism. Let me give a brief background about me. As a child I was totally ignorant of sexuality (i.e lack of sexual education). So I used to lie on the floor and stimulate my genitals by directly rubbing them on the floor in prone position.
537731 tn?1268268886 I can't take this pain much more. I am 31 years old 5'9. My neck and back hurt all the time. My back and neck are always tight never relaxing. I have knots throughout back and neck that have to be rubbed out just to get some temporary relief popping back. My muscles throb. It feels like bone on bone. For the last two weeks my shoulder blades throb and feel like they are rubbing together. The muscles in my butt are tight and hurt.
