Hi, I have several medical issues, I have a herniated disc c5-6 ? and spinal stenosis on right, degenerative
disc disease, low back, neck, and shoulder
The pain was quite severe last night and it woke me up 3 times, I tried walking a tennis ball up my back and it was very tender, I don't have a cough or shortness of breath
Q... Does this pain radiates to the front of chest ?
Q... Is there some rash in this area ?
Ok, thank you for your replies.
I will give my evaluation and you can ask more questions if you have any.
This pain seems more likely to be due to musculoskeletal pain.
As you have disc and spine problems so there are high chances that this pain is due to very same reason.
If the spines hurt when you press on them then there are high chances that this is a spine issue and needs ASAP evaluation with clinical examination, tests like X rays and MRI scan.
As i am not able to examine you so this puts me at a point where i cannot give exact diagnosis.
Your questions ? queries ?
But there are high chances that this is musculoskeletal issue and if spines are also tender then ASAP evaluation is needed.
You have questions that you want to ask. ?
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX go and get checked out
I did have an xray in June and I have mild lower thoracic kyphoscoliosis and mild degenerative disc disease throughout the thoracic spine.
I don't again know if this is related but I am having trouble catching my breath
and I feel winded, my back is not hurting like previous, I took my blood pressure last night when I was having trouble breathing and it was 87/66 heart
rate 85 and 90/67 heart rate 84. I have been taking ativan in case it is only
anxiety but it doesn't seem to help, if this was anxiety would my blood pressure be higher and would my heart rate also be higher. I do cough and
sometimes it is squeeky.
Thank you for your quick response. I am going to the ER now I will let you
know how I make out. Thanks again
Hi Dr. Cameron, I just got home from the ER, they did EKG, blood and urine
and said everything was ok, lungs sounded clear, no idea why I am having
trouble breathing. Told me to see my GP. They did not do any xray. I wished
I lived in the USA as I think I would get better care and an answer.
Thank you so very much for your concern and quick response.
