Degenerative Muscle Diseases
Hey I got head numbness on right side and neck muscle tight during sleep and I have been diagnosed with multilevel of degenerative disc disease?
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more
I have a bulging disc and degenerative disc disease in my lower back. I pulled a muscle in my lower back can that cause me to have knee pain with move?
Yes: Yes, but @ age 25 deg disc disease is rather uncommon unless other factors involved. Back pain w/ nerve 'pinching' can cause knee pain BUT a good examination / history can normally distinguish between back and related nerve pain and a primary knee problem (tendinitis, kneecap, etc.). My reccommation would be to see a board certified ORS if your symptoms persist. Best of Luck!! ...Read more

Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disease where our body makes antibodies against the acetylcholine receptor at our nerve endings to muscle, causing weakness and fatigue.
The disease usually first affects the muscles that move our eyes and our muscles of facial expression, even affecting swallowing and breathing.

Remission: The most important thing for improving your muscle mass is to get your disease in to remission, which will allow you to absorb more key nutrients. However some people will be advised to take supplemental calories in the form of liquid shakes. These usually just "stave off" more weight loss but potentially could help with increasing lean muscle. Talk to your gastroenterologist. ...Read more

My muscle is pulled away from my verterbrea which collapsed 2 disc is this the cause of scheuemann's disease I got hurt at work and they said all that happened wasn't work related due to this scheuemanns disease
Scheuremann's disease is the formation of wedge shaped spinal vertebrae. This is caused by uneven vertebral body growth during adolescence. The front of the vertebral body grows slower then the back forming a wedge shape resulting in a hunchback or kyphosis. The cause is unknown. It does not progress after spine growth is complete. It can cause severe back pain, rarely organ and spinal cord problems.
Work injuries do not cause schuermann's disease, but it may have caused your problem. Sometimes injuries can cause multiple compression fractures that can be misdiagnosed as schuermann's disease. Work injury can also damage other spine structures like muscles, ligaments and joints causing pain unrelated to the compressed vertebrae (schuermann's disease). Independent on the the presence or absence of schuermann's disease the most important question is did you have back pain prior to the injury. If you did not then something was injured during the injury.
You may benefit from a second opinion. Good luck! ...Read more

Yes I have a muscle disease, MG. But if exercise weakens our muscles is it true just laying or sitting around ALSOWeaken them?
You can exercise: Myasthenia Gravis tends to produce a change in the muscle which is very similar to atrophy. Regular, moderate exercise can combat atrophy. Beneficial exercise is repetitive and done in a way that stops short of muscle fatigue. The key is to do something both pleasant and not stressful which will help keep weight down and reaffirm the positive, emotional feelings you attain during exercise ...Read more

This is mysterious: This has been very hard to sort out. The disease is so rare (if it is even real), the described features of the disease vary from paper to paper (anything from a catastrophic illness to the normal harmless persistence of aluminum at an old injection site), and the anti-immunization militants have gotten involved. A toxic effect of a Chloroquine (known muscle poisons) seems most likely to me. ...Read more

As in 'psychosomatic', emotions are powerful in energy and channeled to the wrong place in the body, can create unpleasant symptoms. The symptoms are real! ...Read more
