My 29 month old daughter has been complaining of back pain, leg and arm pain she has an undiagnosed bleeding/blood disorder could the pain be related?

My 29 month old daughter has been complaining of back pain, leg and arm pain she has an undiagnosed bleeding/blood disorder could the pain be related?

Depends on which: bleeding disorder she has. I assume a pediatric hematologist is evaluating her. Whether related to her blood disorder or not, she's in pain & needs to see her pediatrician. Kids that age don't complain about aches & pains for no reason. Take her temperature when she complains. 100.4 degrees F or above is a fever. Note any joint swelling, tenderness, heat, limp,decreased appetite or activity level. ...Read more

Have been having upper-mid back pain with right arm pain, xray showed mild scoliosis and mild spondylosis. I'm 29 f, what does this mean? Treatment?

Nerve irritation,MRI: Arm pain with scoliosis and upper back pain suggests a bulging disc in the lower cervical spine. If the arm pain is significant, an MRI scan will help resolve the problem. If the disc is bulging or degenerate, physical therapy and an exercise program along with anti-inflammatory medications such as Motrin or alleve should be first step. Spondylosis means degeneration of the discs in spine. ...Read more

Neck pain: Yes. People with arthritis in the low back often have arthritis in the neck. A pinched nerve in the neck can lead to radiating arm pain, headaches, numbness, weakness, imbalance, and difficulty with urination. A myelogram and CT scan of the neck is required to evaluate the cervical spine. Most spinal cord stimulators are not MRI compatible. ...Read more
