Are full body aches related to herniated disc?

No: A herniated disc tends to cause localized pain or if a nerve is being compressed by a herniated disc pain can occur in an arm or leg. For example, if a disc is herniated in the neck, pain can radiate into an arm which we call a radiculopathy or radicular pain. If the herniated disc is in the lower back the pain can radiate into a leg and it can be severe. Full body aches are not related to a disc. ...Read more

I have herniated disc between shoulders and sciatic nerve pain now my skin is sore to touch all over any relation?

I have herniated disc between shoulders and sciatic nerve pain now my skin is sore to touch all over any relation?

No: Herniated discs may push on nerves but the pain radiates only along the affected nerve(s). For examples, sciatica is not related to the shoulder blade level disc herniation. Sciatica is caused by pressure on lower lumbar nerves. Skin sensitivity to touch is caused by sensitive nerve endings in the skin, not a problem back at the spinal cord or spinal nerves. ...Read more

What can be done about back and feet ache caused by herniated disk, when physiotherapy didn't work?

More often that not the treatment did not include an important intervention. Not all pt is made the same. Discuss this with your physician.

10 days before the 40th birthday I could not move out of bed. Something was wrong with my back in the upper region toward my neck.....?

Honest: This is not a case for HealthTap. You need a 1-1 evaluation by a neurologist and/or rheumatologist. The efforts of the available HealthTap MD's have been outstanding as far as they could go In fact, if you are near the Mayo or Lahey clinics, then you should go there for an inter-discipline evaluation. In absolutely no sense of criticism, you have been through what I call "too much:" and need important psychological support to help you work this thru. H. Robert Silverstein, MD, FACC ...Read more

My roommate had full body aches yesterday and her stomache hurts, she has pain on her right side and she gets shooting pain down her right leg.

My roommate had full body aches yesterday and her stomache hurts, she has pain on her right side and she gets shooting pain down her right leg.

To ER: Do not know the relationship between the onset of body and stomach aches, but the pain you are describing strongly suggest irritation of a nerve root exiting from the lumbar spine. This can be caused by many things, most commonly a bulging intraspinous disc. She needs to go to student health service or to an ER right away, and needs to thank you for your concern. ...Read more

My full body aches, I have a sore throat and white pus also in my throat what could this be?

Throat Infection: That constellation of symptoms is suspicious for strep throat (a bacterial infection of the throat and tonsils). Another concern would be "mono" (infectious mononucleosis). Both can be tested for rapidly in an urgent care or through your primary care doctor. Don't want to delay in this case b/c antibiotics will likely be needed (depending on the diagnosis). Abscess can form if untreated. Take care. ...Read more

I've a herniated disc @ c6/c7 in august '11. Lost all strength in right triceps. Tricepts getting stronger now. How long can full recovery take?

I've a herniated disc @ c6/c7 in august '11.  Lost all strength in right triceps. Tricepts getting stronger now.  How long can full recovery take?

Can take months: If you lost all your strength, the nerve was really pinched. If you recover fully it will take months. Do not stop exercising and strengthening the muscle because once you atrophy that muscle it will become difficult to get full strength back. You may need to get an EMG study done to see the extent of damage if you are not better and may even need a dedicated OT/PT program. ...Read more

I have 2 herniated disc's in my lower back. I am having a lot of feelings like ( going to sleep) in my upper body (most of my upper torso). Should i?

Your presentation is: A bit unusual . The symptom from nerve compression or impingment is distal to the lesion . If you have bulge disc that is symptomatic . The symptoms should be lower than the area of injury not higher up. I think you need to see your doc and need reevaluation . Good luck. ...Read more
