Sacroiliitis: Likely inflammation of the sacroiliac joint. This a joint between the sacrum and the ilium. The joints are located bilaterally where the small dimples in the low back are located. Pain in this joint is made worse by rising from a seated position, rolling onto the affected side while in bed, and taking a step up on the affected side.

Old man with pain in neck near top of scalene muscle, and leg pain. Pain comes and goes and triggers when twisting his neck to right. What can be said?

Muscle or ligament: Sounds like a mainly muscular or connective tissue issue. Restriction and pain in one area such as the neck can actually relate to other areas because of the way the body is put together. An osteopath that does manual medicine might be ideal to see, or a physical therapist to get some evaluation, a clear diagnosis, and treatment. Arthritis can be a part of that as well. ...Read more

4 y/o w/intermittent leg pain at night and a 2cm movable lymph node in neck for 3 mos. Cbc showed slightly high mvc, all else normal. Should I worry?

Surprising answer: I have seen many children witrh what used to be acceptable as "growing pains". They are caused by inefficient metabolism in the tissues of a rapidly growing child and it is a reflection of empty calories inducing relative vitamin deficiency----hence they really are "growing pains"! they do respond to appropriate diet and vitamin supplements. See my blog "oxygen the spark of life". ...Read more

Hi I have pain in my right shoulder blade back pain neck and boob and down my right arm and finding it hard to breath and leg pain?

A pinched nerve in the neck can cause very similar symptoms to what you are describing but is usually not associated with shortness of breath. A good medical checkup would be a good place to start. ...Read more

I had Ant. Cerv. Discectomy in 2012. Pain and grinding sound in neck, fingers turn blue, numbness in hands and leg, pain in back going to left leg.?

Something else: Symptoms in legs have nothing to do with your neck. The grinding is consistant most likely with bony scar tissue from the surgery, which is not a reason for repeat surgery. You need nerve studies to see if you have an underlying nerve disease (neuropathy). I would see a neurologist ...Read more
