Avatar f tn As of April 2005, doctors at the Mayo Clinic began supporting prolotherapy. Mayo Clinic doctors list the areas that are most likely to benefit from prolotherapy treatment: ankles, knees, elbows, and sacroiliac joint in the low back. They report that "unlike corticosteroid injections — which may provide temporary relief — prolotherapy involves improving the injected tissue by stimulating tissue growth.

5093508 tn?1390547531 Pleurisy is a specific type of chest pain.

Below is a direct quote from the Mayo Clinic regarding Fibromyalgia: Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain in your muscles, ligaments and tendons, as well as fatigue and multiple tender points — places on your body where slight pressure causes pain. Fibromyalgia occurs in about 2 percent of the population in the United States.

Avatar n tn There is some great information at the Mayo Clinic Website, here's some info about the headaches. Screening and diagnosis The signs and symptoms of polymyalgia rheumatica are similar to those of a number of other conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis and polymyositis — a disease that causes muscle inflammation and weakness. For that reason, your doctor will diagnose polymyalgia rheumatica only after ruling out other possible causes for your pain and stiffness.
Avatar f tn My doctor from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN recommended it and it has helped, especially starting my day. Good luck.

Avatar m tn I did call the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix. That is always an option for me too.
Avatar f tn This is good news. from the mayo clinic: Introduction You hurt all over, and you frequently feel exhausted. Even after numerous tests, your doctor can't find anything specifically wrong with you. If this sounds familiar, you may have fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain in your muscles, ligaments and tendons, as well as fatigue and multiple tender points — places on your body where slight pressure causes pain.
625530 tn?1221870270 I don't think I've had any other symptoms associated with Lyme or lupus, though I've had occasional mild joint pain in the fingers (diagnosed as early osteoarthritis). No diabetes as far as I know -- blood sugar levels have been fine. I have an upcoming neurology appointment, but I'm having to wait quite awhile for it. These sensations are really not that bad in and of themselves, but they're scary. I guess I'm wondering how scared to be. Thanks for your help. I really appreciate it.
Avatar f tn The doctors think I have more than what I have explained since I have more symptoms than normal. They want me to go to Mayo Clinic. Some day we will figure this out. Oh, by the way how many of you have problems with watches, computers or other mechanics. You have an electromagnetic imbalance that will mess these things up.

Avatar n tn Oh My Gosh...You might be my medical twin -except I'm 44! I could have written your post myself (except for the falling asleep in the car part) and until now, hadn't found anyone with issues like me. I have all those symptoms...major laxity of joints that is progressive. It started about three years ago after fertility treatment, after a jump into water from a cliff in Hawaii and after exposure to chemicals while we were having our house renovated.
954005 tn?1304630205 Yes, Tuck...I think (hope) this is just a blip in my system...I really really hope so! Either my original MRI, or one of my x-rays before my coccyx surgery, said there was an irregularity at the sacro-iliac junction, as well as the crushed coccyx.... A few weeks ago I was sent for blood tests to test for the sacro-iliac inflammation and to see if it was due to reasons like osteoarthritis or something similar, or not....
Avatar m tn teaching hospital/diagnostic centers like Mayo Clinic or Cleveland Clinic? If the doctors you have now aren't helping, the best thing you can do for yourself is move 'up the food chain' of doctors to more highly skilled practitioners. There is all kinds of testing and technology available at these big name hospitals that just doesn't exist elsewhere. It is worth the trouble, in my experience.
Avatar f tn Having a sore throat and feeling tired can be symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Avatar f tn Deep, aching pain in a muscle Pain that persists or worsens A tender knot in a muscle Difficulty sleeping due to pain (all of the above from Mayo Clinic) Elsewhere: Many of those already suffering from the pain of fibromyalgia also suffer from myofascial pain syndrome. Myofascial pain syndrome is another form of chronic pain that can affect the entire body, particularly the face and jaw.
Avatar f tn What MD did you see at the Mayo Clinic? I saw one with whom I was not impressed at the Mayo Clinic in MN. I look forward to reading your thoughts.
748543 tn?1463449675 What's more is that I find that dental malocclusion is frequently one of the principle causes of the TMD. The article went on commenting that MRI and CAT scans are among the biggest advances in diagnosis of TMD, that is just ludicrous.While those are valuable diagnostic tools they do not show what is the underlying cause of the misalignment. I frequently find that to be the malocclusion.
220917 tn?1309788081 Even wanted me to go to the Mayo Clinic if I couldn't get help in Detroit. The endo typed all this in the program. SO....we talked about what my neuro found. Or, rather I talked. I told him I had hyper reflexes, increased muscle tone in all four limbs, Babinski's response in at least my right foot, and severe weakness in my legs, moderate weakness in my arms. I told him my NCV/EMG was normal, my PET scan was normal and I'd had normal MRIs. My blood work had always been normal.
Avatar f tn covers a full range of of problems, from nerve misfirings and erratic sensory signals that cause tingling and pain AND hypersensitivity to touch, to outright numbness on the other, like Sandy's experiencing. As I recall the Mayo clinic has a decent page or two on it at its site.
Avatar m tn They are about as poor as Clev Clinic and Mayo. They use the same diagnostic criteria that the CDC and ISDA says to use.So consequently they miss 90% of the actual POS results.
Avatar n tn take print out some of your research (the mayo clinic has recently done some great clincial trials involving BOTOX as the the treatment) to your doctors and educate them! They need to recognize this as a valid medical condition. http://www.mayoclinic.org/hyperhidrosis/treatment.html There is also a surgery, called ETS (side affects are major though) and read my latest post about DITROPAN. Hope this helps you.
Avatar n tn I'm afraid I'll end up in a wheel chair! Does anyone know what causes it? I also have really really bad knots in my back from it, and get leg and arm cramps often.
Avatar n tn 6 yrs later im in no better position. However, im on a waiting list to get into the famous Mayo Clinic. Finally someone has taken an interest in my case. Doctors r stumped. Most want to say i have internal shingles.or post shingles nerve pain. I've never had a rash or blisters or anything other than the burning skin and very sunburn like sensitivity and stabbing nerve pain in the muscles around my waist. Im praying for all of you. Good luck and will post again after Mayo.
Avatar n tn This causes a lot of inflammation and subsequent acute pain, although this is only part of the picture, I'm sure. The good news, from what I understand, is that after the bone heals up properly (which they say can take months), things should be mostly back to normal, although there is a slightly higher risk of back problems in the future. You need to be careful to NOT go to a chiropractor initially (I made that mistake).
Avatar f tn Hello dear, You should consult a neurologist and get MRI done as there could be several causes for the muscle weakness such as degenerative spine changes,TIA,stroke,neuropathy,nerve compression etc.Are you hypertensive?You should monitor his blood pressure levels regularly You should go for a evaluation and get the diagnosis confirmed.
