Customer Question
My name is *****...

My name is ***** *****... My question is about the pain in my left bicep and shoulder...the bicep feels like a severe cramp. My neck and face tingle occasionally throughout the day on the right side. Extreme pain on the right side was the issue until about 4 days ago when pain became more extreme on left and in bicep. 5.6.7. are fused results of compression fracture in 1985. Also past 3-4 nights while laying on stomach to sleep deep breaths cause severe cramping under ribs in my back.

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Two weeks ago I had steroid injection as close to neck as Dr was willing to get...refuses to touch my neck

Hi

You need an MRI of the cervical spine.

The fusion is a concern, and there can be more problems in this area.

Get a full structural exam, of the shoulder as well.

See an orthopedist immediately.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
