Panic Attacks: I know its very distressful experiencing such symptoms and and waiting for the results of all the tests and finding out there is nothing I would recommend getting an evaluation with a psychiatrist or at least a therapist to address the anxiety that is leading to these anxiety symptoms there are a lot better ways to address these issues so relax you will be fine but don't ignore it.

A 21-year-old member asked:
This is the first time i've hadlow back pain. Will I have to have x-rays on my first visit to the doctor?

No: The recommendations for treatment of low back pain involve identifying a trigger and conservative treatment. Things like anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxants, heating pads or ice packs, and stretching are first line therapy. If your pain fails to improve then an xray would be considered. Of course, if you have numbness or loss of bladder/bowel control you will most definitely need imaging.

A 19-year-old female asked:
Bump on side of mouth but don't hurt and looks like a blister and I got big bumps on back of my tongue and throat but none of it hurts?

Mucocele possibly: The bump on the side of your mouth might be a mucocele. It is a clear bump filled with salvia. Caused when the duct to a minor salivary gland gets clogged and the saliva backs up. Most common on the lower lip but can occur elsewhere in the mouth. Ussually resolve on their own. Some times large ones require surgical removal. Bumps on the back of your tongue are probably normal vallate taste buds.

Could myoclonic jerks be from cervical spine stenosis. Before I fall asleep sometimes I have this jerk and I bite my tongue. Happens like once a month?

Sleep disorder: Classically myoclonic jerks are a type of rare seizure disorder, these are rare in adults. And its true that a lot of seizures happen upon waking or going to sleep. You may have a sleep disorder that explains this better. It would be wise to have a sleep study to be sure and there are treatment for these as well.
