I have had an MRI over my whole body almost. I had a test on my heart and it was great. I’m over weight and sometimes can’t breathe very good
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
All of that

OK.

Did they do EMG and nerve conduction testing in the legs?

And did they do a MRI of the lumbar spine -- specifically? Do you remember those results?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The nerve test basically said I was overweight and wore too tight clothing. I have a little bit of fusion of the pelvic but no angling spondylitis. I was on prednisone for over a month. I’ve had liver test cause my liver enzymes were elevated and I’ve had calcium in my blood test for over 5 years now

OK.

Have you been evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon?

A rheumatologist?

And a neurologist?

I have a little bit of bone speres in both my neck and l5 s1. I have a crooked spine. Since i was little kids I’ve had leg pain
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Not a surgeon but I have 2 Nero’s and a rheumatologist. I’ve even had a lumbar puncture and they ruled out MS

Well, I would want an orthopedic surgeon to evaluate your L5-S1 level.

Issues at that level (which you seem to have) can cause hip pain that radiates down the leg to your foot, and so based on your description of pain, I would want to have that evaluated.

the neurologist with the LP ruled out other things, such as intracranial hypertension, and MS, and other weird neurologic conditions, so that is good. He could also help with migraine medications.

This is going to be very tough, especially because you've seen all your doctors and had many tests done. Was there a specific question that we could answer?

Is there any test whether blood or scanning that could rule out anything else? Would having my thyroid removed help?

If you are on thyroid replacement hormone -- then what you do with or without your thyroid will not make much of a difference.

Perhaps a bone scan can help to look for places of active arthritis, to see why your joints are hurting so badly.

Discussing further with the rheumatologist to look for other autoimmune diseases with further bloodwork may be helpful.

I’ve had a bone scan and it showed I have brital bones. I’m doing Botox for my migraine and been tested for the auto autoimmune disease which came back negative.

I believe you are talking about a bone density test.

This is a nuclear medicine "bone scan", which looks for areas of increased metabolic activity, such as severe arthritis, infection, inflammation, etc.

My children and grandchildren have the same leg problems and one of my daughters was also tested positive for hlab 27. There has to be something heritatory.
There was a test where I was injected with something radioactive, it came back fine.

Perhaps getting a second opinion from another rheumatologist at a large medical center can be helpful.

It appears you have had a number of tests without a diagnosis, so it can be helpful to get a second fresh look at everything.

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
have them start from fresh or take all my records.

Take all your records, so that they don't have to repeat every test.

Then they can figure out which tests haven't been ordered, and based on your symptoms and results from this test, further narrow down potential causes for your symptoms.

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.
