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

Past few months I've been having night sweats, not drenching but very clammy, and a bit wet, specifically at the back of neck and legs, what is this?!

Night sweats: Mild sweating at night can result from a warm room or covers too heavy. However, soaking night sweats- often indicate potentially serious infections or inflammatory disorders. (TB and malaria are classical examples, in people at risk for them.) Sweating usually means fever going down during the night. Take your temperature a few times a day and see your doctor soon to make sure it's not serious. ...Read more

Sweating in legs, back, neck and head when in contact with fabric or another person x1+ years. No other Sx. Weight normal. No similar Sx in past.

Sweating: It is reassuring that you don't have abnormal sweating patterns in bed that are seen in infection, fever, overactive thyroid and malignancy like lymphoma. could anxiety explain excessive sweating when touching another person? Some people do note perspiration when in contact with materials like leather. In summary, I don't think you have any pathologic disorder due to lack of other symptoms. ...Read more

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

Pain on right back when bending down to the right like when I want to pick something and back pain when bending my neck backward plus leg pain..

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. Apply ice at night in addition to anti-inflammatory medications. ...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?

Be seen: Although there are multie potential causes, you would be well suited to be seen to rule out a cardiac or ply unset source if it is associated with difficulty breathing as you are describing.

It could be: Something serious, when you have this much pain in these different areas. I don't think any home remedies would help if you had it for 2 weeks already.

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
