Hematologist needed!: If you are a non-smoker, the hct of 62.5% strongly indicates a "myeloproliferative" disorder of which polycythemia vera is a variant and can give bone pain, especially if there is a high viscosity that limits blood flow and tissue oxygen delivery. The uric acid is not significantly elevated and not playing a role in your symptoms, but ongoing monitoring is required with blood disorders. ...Read more
I have advanced spondylosis with grade 1 spondylesthesis, i feel acute pain while standing up straight.I hv to bend torso towards hip to walk.
Many treatments: Start with physical therapy and core conditioning. At some point an epidural steroid injection might be helpful. If all else fails and your symptoms impact your activities of daily living, surgery can be curative.

I had an ankle sprain 6 months back. It still pains if i standand walk for 5 minutes. The MRI reported torn talocalcanealligament with partial tear of post.Talofibular ligament. Whatshould i do?
See specialist.: It is not common to have tear of those ligaments. Typically if the posterior talofib is torn, the anterior talofib and calcaneaofib also torn. The talocalcaneal lig also hard to tear. This may mean very high level ankle sprain and a foot/ankle specialist is needed. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Ana 1:80 homogeneous, sed rate 51, chronic post nasal drip, inflamed sinuses, osteo arthritis, fatigue, brain fog. What are some possible explanations?
Labs not helpful: These are generally unrelated problems. Chronic sinusitis and post nasal drip are likely one and the same. Arthritis may be just that. The ANA and ESR are nonspecific and may be "normal" although elevated. The list of things that can cause fatigue and brain fog is rather extensive and is probably best answered in person with your doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had arthroscopic ankle debridement & modified brostrom 7 wks ago. Feel pain in ankle when full weight bearing. Is this normal? How long?
Yes: 7 weeks is not that far out for foot and ankle surgery. Since you had surgery on something that you walk and bear weight on, pain, soreness, and swelling can occur for several months...sometimes even 6 months. Soreness is definitely to be expected at this point. I would say that any remaining sharp pain should begin to improve during the next few weeks. Also, make sure to see your surgeon too. ...Read more
