Really intense cough: All the parts of your body are connected so if you have a really intense cough it is not surprising that you feel it rattling other parts of your body. Now the question is why are you coughing so intensely. I obviously don't know what is causing the cough. It could be an infectious process, an allergic one or something else. You should see your doc ASAP and get a work up. ...Read more

L'Hermitte Sign: You describe a sign of shooting pain that coincides with pressure on the nerves. Usually this results with neck loading--yours doesn't, it's spontaneous. Spinal stenosis can be a result of disc herniation, arthritic spurs, or congenital defects that result in an abnormally small spinal canal. When associated with leg symptoms as well, this is concerning. You need to be seen by a spine specialist. ...Read more

Every time I sneeze, I feel intense pain in my extremities (usually arms) for about 15-30 seconds. What could this be? Is it worth mentioning to my dr

Gezundheit: There are 8 nerve roots that come out of each side of the spine at the neck. One of these lower ones is getting irritated by episodes sneezing due to increased internal pressures. Less worrisome if only during sneezing. If pain at rest and other times, its more worrisome. Mention it to your doctor anyways so he or she can perform a few quick bedside tests for re-assurance. ...Read more

Low back pain with right thigh numbness and right arm/hand/wrist pain/numbness. Sneezing causes extreme aching pain in both arms. Thoughts on causes?

Spine specialist W/U: It coulb be from disc disease in your neck or high in the back creating some nerves root irritation from the sudden negative intrathoracic pressure created by the sneeze. When not sneezing the disc may look normal, which makes it very difficult to diagnose. The same phenomenon can result from a build up of bone (osteophytes) near the central canal or the foramen where the nerves travel. ...Read more

Non-cardiac: Hi. Your pain doesn't have the characteristics I associate with cardiac pain, but more with the sternotomy itself. If the bone is not healing well, you could feel such pain. You could ask the surgeon who did the job. If the bone is shifting with movement, sneezing, etc, it will hurt. Get enough calcium and vitamin D for bone healing to take place. Good luck! ...Read more

Should I worry that my baby's rash is spreading from her cheek downward to her arms and legs?

Should I worry that my baby's rash is spreading from her cheek downward to her arms and legs?

No: Rashes are fun — and the vast majority of rashes in newborns are not worrisome. A rash would be infectiously spreading if it moved between contiguous areas — and the legs don't come into contact with the (facial)cheeks. While there are viral infections that can cause what you're describing, you best answer will come from a medical provider who can see your baby's rash: time to make an appointment. ...Read more

My one month old moves his arms and legs a lot, he doesn't stay still, is this normal?

My one month old moves his arms and legs a lot, he doesn't stay still, is this normal?

Normal pattern: Before the baby ever has control of their limbs, the brain sends out regular movement signals to every muscle in the body. This acts to preserve the muscle mass and tone in each so it will be available when baby gains motor skills to use them. This is seen as random stretching and flexing that seems to be for no purpose. However, without it, baby's muscles would be too weak to use later. ...Read more

If I don't keep my arms and legs straight down they hurt and go to sleep what is this?

If I don't keep my arms and legs straight down they hurt and go to sleep what is this?

Depends: I would need your age, your general health and your history. Since it is in the upper and lower extremities, this makes the picture muddled. If it were one or the other, one would think of a vascular blockage or a nerve impingement (kinking). Since it is in both upper and lower, you should see your pcp or a vascular doctor (cardiology or cv surgeon) or neurologist and get an exam and diagnosis. ...Read more
