And now she is totally in the wheelchair.Its been 22 years now she never walk.Hope anybody could help me to answer my question.It would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

Your mother’s condition depends on her underlying medical conditions, the reason for the surgery, as well as the type of surgery. Older patients who are bed bound are especially at risk for losing muscle mass. The phenomenon known as “disuse atrophy” results in a loss of 10-20% of a muscle’s strength with each week of . . . → Read More: Hi! I have a questions regarding my Mom condition.

Hi, I am a 16 year old gymnast and have been experiencing a constant numb, tingling pain in my lower back, it is only on the right side and runs down until just above my knee cap. The pain is much worse when sitting but is always there, I have had it for a couple of days now but have ignored it as I am used to dealing with injuries with my sport. It seems to be getting worse now so would really appreciate some help.

The symptoms you are describing point to a neurologic cause. The pain in the lower back radiating to the knee cap is more likely to be due to a pinched nerve or a herniated lumbar disc than a pulled muscle.

Since the pain is worsening, you should be evaluated by your primary care physician . . . → Read More: Hi, I am a 16 year old gymnast and have been experiencing a constant numb, tingling pain in my lower back, it is only on the right side and runs down until just above my knee cap.

My husband a year ago got what was believed to be pneumonia but his sputum showed nocardia after 3 months of being on the wrong type of antibiotic. They switched him to Bactrim but he also then went into congestive heart failure then they changed it to cardiomyopathy. He has been in terrible pain since having had 3 epidural injections to control the pain on his right side but it didn’t work. He has a regimen of medication for pain but really, it doesn’t work that well. Has anyone ever heard of anything like this? He goes to Brigham Womens but even they are stumped why he is in such pain. The nocardia has cleared but not the discomfort. He can’t sleep on either side and basically has turned into a bear. He was a healthy 40 year old when this happened and rarely ever even got a cold. Any help would be great.

From your description, it appears that the pain started after receiving 3 epidural injections. If thats the case, nerves may have been damaged during the procedure and he may be experiencing neuropathic pain. Additionally, the bacterial infection leading to the cardiomyopathy may have also damage some nerves.

What can cause dizziness, partial loss of eyesight, random numbness in the face and arm, and nausea? (20 year old female with PCOS)

In an older patient, these symptoms are signs of a stroke and require immediate medical attention. However, in a younger patient, orthostatic hypotension is the most likely cause. Orthostatic hypotension occurs when a person rises to a standing position from a lying or sitting position and is a result of falling blood pressure.

My son is 7. He has encopresis (his accidents have slowed to about once a week now). He falls a lot, clumsy, runs into objects like curbs or shelves at a store. His falling is a daily occurrence. He fell last night and fell three more times when trying to get off of the ground. I had to physically help him up. He is extremely sensitive to noise, as a baby he would cover his ears and cry if there was a loud noise. He has normal hearing according to the ENT doctors here. He tells me that the “fast cars” distract him at school (he can hear the cars going down the street outside of his school). If he gets close to my mouth or nose he will tell me that I am breathing loudly. He tells his friends to get out of his face or covers his ears because they are “giving him a headache” or just too loud. He has problems putting his feelings/thoughts into words. A lot of times we are left trying to interpret what he says or asking him questions trying to figure out what’s going on with him….for instance he was hit at school once and came home with a black eye. He told me one story, told his teacher a different story and told his sister another. We still don’t know who hit him but he knew that he was hit and that it wasn’t from falling. He gets upset and cries over strange things like being told to go to the bathroom before we leave for the park. He gets frustrated when things aren’t going right. He is easily fatigued. He is on the lazy side, his arms and legs are “floppy” if you carry him he doesn’t hold on he just hangs. He is constantly moving or fidgeting. He makes good grades in school but he has to be constantly told to do his work. I find myself trying to get his attention a lot, especially when we are in the car and I cannot be close to him or turn around and look at him. We are being sent for a neurological evaluation but I am curious what these symptoms are indicative of??

Your son appears to have multiple neurologic symptoms that suggest either a neurologic disorder, an endocrine disorder, or a metabolic disorder. Your son’s symptoms are too vague to narrow down into a specific diagnosis without proper medical workup. That he has these symptoms at a young age is suggestive of a genetic syndrome.
