What causes referred pain? How does the doctor differentiate the source of lower back pain when it affects the hips glutes and hamstring?
3 y/o had VUR w/ scarring. Now VUR clear & kidneys measure 6.4cm. Refered to Nephrology. Can't get appt for couple months. What possible issues?
This is just:
"a thought" since the answer should come from your child's Pediatrician but I would guess the kidneys are a bit "small" for your baby's age and follow-up after the VUR with nephrology is a common. And nowadays "STANDARD OF CARE" No "emergency" (my opinion)
Hope this helps and good luck!

Referred to urologist for repeat UTIs, kidney bladder pain. Scheduled apt with NP. Is she qualified enough to help me with this? It's been near 2yrs.
Urologist: There are some nurse practitioners who are highly knowledgeable and reliable. On the other hand, without knowing the capabilities of this particular one would suggest asking that you be seen by the urologist, unless the initial session is only to gather info for the urologist. Good luck as this often is a difficult problem. ...Read more

I suspect pudendal neuralgia. Drs disagree because the pain is throughout, not strictly 1 side. Is it possible 1 side could cause referred pain? 35/m
Not likely: These nerves do not cross the midline, so having pain referred from one anatomic side to another really wouldn't make sense. It is possible you could have similar problems on both sides or a problem higher up. ...Read more

Causes of coldness / spasms thoracic. Is this serious? What other symptoms should. I be looking for like referred pain? X-rays normal mild scollsis
Uncertain: Mild scoliosis is almost always asymptomatic. Don't let anyone convince you it's the cause without a thorough investigation of other possibilities. Altho this list isn't an all-inclusive, I'd consider esophageal inflammation or spasm, an imminent outbreak of shingles, a thoracic sprain/ strain or costochondritis. You need follow up until the cause is found or it goes away on its own. ...Read more
How long does a "full" recovery usually take after a sesmoidectomy? Worst little injury I have ever had and I have had a lot. I am over 12 months post op and still have pain and possibly related "referred pain" to the base of my 4th and 5th toes at the
You have two sesamoid bones, but since you made reference to an injury, I'm going to assume you fractured your tibial sesamoid, which is the one furthest away from the pinky toe, and the one more exposed, less protected, and more susceptible to injury.
The sesamoids act as fulcrums and are invested in one of the flexor tendons near the bottom of the big toe, and their purpose is to give more leverage (power) to the flexor tendons as to equate the power of the extensor tendons. When a tibial sesamoid is removed, two things are usually also done: the extensor tendon of the big toe is lengthened (to offset the loss of power of the flexor tendon after the sesamoid is removed), and a special type of repair is made to the joint capsule of the big toe to prevent it from turning in, which can occur after the tibial sesamoid is removed.
So not only are you facing the consequences of walking on this thing for a year, but you also probably had more stuff done than just have the sesamoid removed.
Nevertheless, now at 12 months post-op, you shouldn't really be limping.
I recommend you get a second opinion. ...Read more

Is it possible to feel inflammation or referred pain in right side of chest from gallbladder? Feels heavy. No stones just low function
Nerves to the gallbladder can give pain in upper abdomen, lower chest, or sometimes in the right shoulder. If you have had ultrasound or other gallbladder test (often hida scan is done) and have continuing symptoms, it is reasonable to ask your doctor to refer you to a surgeon.
Gall bladder removal is commonly done, and most people do well with it. ...Read more
Can muscle spasms trap nerves? Is this what a trigger point is-a point at which a nerve is trapped by a spasmed muscle? Don't understand referred pain
1. Yes muscles can trap nerves. Muscle spasm can put pressure on the peripheral nerve, producing symptoms along that nerve’s distribution.
2. A motor excitatory effect on muscle may cause formation of a trigger point, also called muscle tightness or twitching located in a taut band of skeletal muscle. They produce pain locally and referred pain to other sites. ...Read more
Neck/shoulder pain, comes on suddenly 3/4 times a year. Gallbladder removed 1 year. Could this be related? Or referred pain from the onset of something
Other symptoms?: Does it feel like a pulled muscle? How long does it last? Do certain foods make it worse. Have you tried any meds? Did u injure the muscle working out? Would you say it is more related to food or activity? Does it feel like your old gallbladder symptoms? Many musculoskeletal things, strains, etc can give you those symptoms. Nausea? If more food related you may want to go back to surgeon. ...Read more
NO: Trigeminal neuralgia is an intense focalized facial pain lasting over a period of a few seconds.

But, generically, and classically, the attacks of facial pain are localized, focalized, and relatively stereotypical. ...Read more
