Customer Question
I am 45 years...

I am 45 years old,male.I am experiencing pain in my right leg upto ankle since a month and consulted a Doctor/Physiotherapist who suggested X Rays.My X Ray LS Spine today indicates Straightening of lumbar spine; Anterior Osteophytes from L3 to L5 level with mildly reduced disc height at L5-S1 Level with end plate sclerosis and X Ray of Right Knee today suggests reduced medial tibiofemoral and patellofemoral joint spaces, osteophytic changes involving the patella,femur and tibia. Please advise as I want to reverse the condition asap and get all right asap.Thanks.

Doctor's Assistant: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?

I have been taking 50,000 IU of Vitamin D since last 4 month /one cap per week.I shall look forward to Doc Advise.Thanks.

Doctor's Assistant: OK. Got it. Last thing - JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $34) to post your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

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.
