Bicep pain

0

I have had bicep pain in the right bicep for over a year.
It hurts when I lean on it or reach behind my back. Doesn’t hurt when I do bicep curls with light weights. Recently my left bicep has had the same symptoms.
I’ve tried PT but hasn’t helped. Advil helps somewhat.
Had an x-ray of right shoulder that showed nothing. Any info or suggestions?

horrible pain after shot of Depo-Medrol

0

Yesterday I went to my ortho. surgeon about my tendon pain. I had done an mri, worn a boot, etc. and he said there was some questionable places in my tendon so he reccommended I get a shot of Depo, Xylocaine, and marcaine.
One of those is a topical analgesic, not sure which one.
After I got the shot I felt great.
Was able to move my ankle, no problem.
After a few hours, it began to hurt and now I can’t move my foot or toes at all without severe pain.
Is this supposed to happen or could he possibly have hit a nerve or tendon?
They told me to put ice on it.
That didn’t help at all.
Any comments would be appreciated.

Ligament surgery for neuroma?

0

Is the surgery where a ligament is cut/stretched a better alternative to the surgery for a neuroma where they cut the portion of the nerve out that is causing trouble?
What exactly is the procedure called where the ligament is “altered” to increase space for the nerve?
If this surgery has better results, I would rather have it than have a nerve removed and subject myself to a numb section of foot for the rest of my life.
Thanks for any input.

foot pain

0

I injured myleft foot about 4-5 years ago, I had a snow plow on a truck fall on it.
I have seen numerous doctors, x-rays up the you know what, and don’t forget the mri’s.
They say they can’t find anything but the foot is always bruisedand weak.
It will lock up and not move, and feels like there is a piece moving around inside. Compression helps stabalize the foot but doesn’t help with the burning and stretching feelings.
I have size 15 boots and can’t find a brace that works good. Any ideas?

Uusual blister on bottom of foot – 28 months old

0

My 28-month old son has something odd on the bottom of his foot.
It basically exactly like a blister in appearance, translucent to opaque, white, bulbous/puffy, soft, redness at the edges, but instead of being round, it is linear, about 5mm or so wide, three or four inches long.
It starts on the inside edge of the bottom of the foot, about mid-heel, crosses the entire bottom of the foot and goes up the outside of the foot about another inch.
The line formed is about an inch forward of the base of the heel, the back edge.
There was no event that led to an injury to our knowledge.
Inside his shoe, I feel nothing out of place.
He doesn’t complain of pain but he is obviously walking up on the ball of his foot and not putting the heel down, especially on bare floor but also on carpet.
However, he does land on that feel and does not express pain verbally, nor does he wince.
It has been three days and no sign of improvement.
I no longer recall exaclty when I first noticed, but it might have been first thing in the morning when dressing.
Inside the house he is barefoot, outside in socks and shoes.
We have a mix of carpet and bare floors.
He is not one to jump up and down but he does scamper up and down the hall.Any ideas?
I have some pix of the foot but need to find a place to host them as I don’t see a way to attach them to this message.thanks all

Planter fibroma, have a question

0

It all started about 3 years ago when i was first diagnosed with it on my right foot. First cortisone injection lasted 3 months, the second which was stronger lasted me almost two and a half years. As of right now I feel three more on the bottom of my right foot, next to the origional one. And one on my left foot, making a total of five.
From my understanding you shouldnt have more than 3 shots of cortisone in a years time.
Would each area require a seperate shot?
Are there any alternatives to the shot other than an alchohol injection?
How about a topical cream or soaking foot in salt water? I know about the special shoes out there, but due to work i need to wear non conductive safty toe boots. Any help much appreciated. Thank you

Cracking and grinding in neck and lower back with pain

0

I had lots of neck and shoulder pain a year after I got into a small car accident and didn’t do treatment until 2.5 years later.
I went for x-rays at a chiropracter for my upper neck and was told I was going into phase two of degenerative disk disease and lost my neck curvature. So we did adjustments 3 times a week, then twice a week for 2-3 months about.
My curvature is finally noticable once again, yet now I am hearing this cracking and grinding noise throughout the day when slightly moving my neck any position.
Sometimes, my neck hurts so bad, I press on the back of it and feel a buldge of something – if I push on it hard it makes a grinding sound, and subsides a little.
When this buldge appears, massive pain along my arm and shoulders reaccur again and it’s unbearable.
I asked the chiro about it and he says it’s nothing major? Can you please help me and give me advice as to what this is and is it curable without surgeory?
I don’t have anymore money left to pay for a chiropracter anymore since I was paying out of pocket.I apologize if this is so much information and questioning, but this is really bothering me. I’m 23 years old and I feel like a cripple sometimes.
The neck and shoulder problem didn’t occur until after the accident when I was 20. On the other hand, I have had lower back problems since I was at least 13 years old.
Sometimes I get this severe shock if I am even gently bending down.
I always have pain when standing and if I massage or push on the lower area, it always feels like a bruise. Now it’s getting to the point this last 3 months where I hear this loud popping and clicking when I get up from a chair or twist my body naturally.
I get burning sensations too in both my neck and my lower back. What is all of this? My mother and grandmother both had surgeory.
I keep reading that surgeory is not always neccessary, so how do I fix this or can I? Thank you and God bless you.

popping knees and pain in knees and upper legs

0

After sitting, when trying to stand up, I have a lot of pain in both my knees especially the right one. I have been trying to walk each day, but think that maybe instead of helping, it is aggravating the problem. When walking I have to rest because my right shin and leg muscle hurts so badly. I am an insulin dependent diabetic so I need to walk to help sugar control. My knees also pop when I start to stand up almost every time and it’s not just the popping but pretty severe pain with it. Any help or ideas. Thanks! Steve
