I have a husband disabled from stroke, and a son who has seizures that started when he was 18, and i was told by a doctor that has seen both husband and sun I was the cause. Is this possible? What can i do about it?

From your question, there does not appear to be any medical condition that points to one person as the cause of both seizures and strokes. Seizures can be caused by genetics, intracranial masses, drugs/alcohol/medications, fevers/infections, injuries, or metabolic disorders. Strokes are either ischemic or hemorrhagic. Ischemic strokes are caused by either embolic events . . . → Read More: I have a husband disabled from stroke, and a son who has seizures that started when he was 18, and i was told by a doctor that has seen both husband and sun I was the cause.

I had a physical examination and what I want to ask what is the reason my monocytes is high is it because I’ve got anemia or it’s related to something else and is anything else I need to get worried about regarding the result I’ve got?

Monocytes are a type of white blood cell that is generated in our bone marrow plays a part in our immune system. A high monocyte count is considered abnormal and could be a sign of an underlying medical condition. A high count could very well be caused by anemia because bone marrow stimulation increases . . . → Read More: I had a physical examination and what I want to ask what is the reason my monocytes is high is it because I’ve got anemia or it’s related to something else and is anything else I need to get worried about regarding the result I’ve got?

I have a history of a compression fracture to the neck that happened 9 years ago. The broken neck resulted in a C7-C8 spinal cord injury. Recently I have had a lot of neck pain, spasms, and weakness in my arms and hands.(more then usual) My doctor has ordered a MRI to check my neck, she said to see if I have injured my neck again.(not long ago I had a fall where I could have possibly hurt my neck)

Both new and old injuries would show up on an MRI. Radiologists determine the age of the injury based on how the bone looks and what changes are seen. For example, old lesions become “sclerotic” and therefore appear more calcified than newer lesions. Newer fractures and injuries are also associated with adjacent soft . . . → Read More: I have a history of a compression fracture to the neck that happened 9 years ago.

My mom wondering what is best for her to check her pelvis. Is CAT scan determine whats happen to her pelvis? She want to know if CAt scan could tell if my mom pelvis damage. What is the difference between CAT scan and MRI. Since my mom is paralyzed. Also is it necessary if she could start physical therapy without asking a Doctor? Thank you!

What you are looking for determines the test you would perform. For imaging of the pelvic region, X-Ray, Ultrasound, CAT scan, and MRI are all performed. CAT scan is good at discriminating lesions of visceral organs (such as the ovaries, uterus, and intestines) as well as evaluating blood vessels. MRI is more used . . . → Read More: My mom wondering what is best for her to check her pelvis. Is CAT scan determine whats happen to her pelvis?

A week ago my right hip popped while I was streching in gym. Eventually it got better but then it popped again the other day as well as today while I was dancing at a dance competition. It now really hurts to walk and to sit without it almost fully extended as well as to put pressure on it. The pain feels pretty deep. My parents never take me to the doctors so there’s no way I can go or take medication. What may I have done and what should I do to help it heal?

Iliopsoas tendonitis is a relatively common condition among young athletes. Much like the symptoms you are describing, the condition presents with a popping/snapping sensation and audible sound at the hip when extended or flexed. Pain and inflammation usually ensues.

The treatment of choice involves resting and icing the affected area while maintaining adequate hydration. You may take . . . → Read More: A week ago my right hip popped while I was streching in gym.
