I am diagnosed with depression. I have lots of lower back pain and tingling in the feet and toes. My ESR is 63 and CRP is 21.40. What should I do?

Get diagnosed: Your sed rate and CRP are indicative of significant inflammation and future high risk. The low back is surely part of all of this, and may well be a sign of a rheumatological disorder. See an arthritis specialist asap, and get this pinned down. The leg tingling could well be an emerging peripheral nerve problem. ...Read more

Symptoms of bowelmovements of only mucus and jelly fish like things. leg arm feet numbness and tingling. upper and lower back pain. wbc of 14.8?

This requires eval: Your symptoms and signs (white count of 14,800) are numerous and only an in-person evaluation/examination can adequately assess them. I might think of some form of infectious colitis with your mucus BM's and elevated WBC count; the numbness/tingling and pain could be something entirely different. I believe the best advice is go to ER (or your doc's office if you can get in today!) Good wishes:) ...Read more

Why do I have lower back pain after being on my feet at work all day?

Mechanics: Low back pain after standing all day could also be a sign of mild degenerative changes to the lumbar spine.
