Mi ankle was fractured in 2010. I went for Ayurvedic treatment it'z cured but i cannot walk long distance incase i walk it'z getting pain for two days?

Ankle pain: Sorry to hear, since your ankle surgery 3 years ago, your body may have decreased swelling around the area, if they used screws and plates to fix the ankle fracture than it could be impinging or prominent. Although it could be a number of things going on, i'd rec x-rays to better diagnose the causes of ankle pain. Best of luck! ...Read more

I have back pain but I want to do any test where doctor can tell me exact problem, so tell mi which test I should do?

I have back pain but I want to do any test where doctor can tell me exact problem, so tell mi which test I should do?

It depends: Back pain can be due to many causes. Determination of specific test depends on the history related to pain, its nature and behavior, response to motion or lack of it, radiation to what other parts of your body, what relieves or aggravates it, etc. Other non-pain history can be helpful such as cancer, trauma, etc. Physical exam is needed. Overall, you need to be evaluated by a physician. ...Read more

Sorry: Silent heart disease is a killer in our country: good news- you have a cardiac clearance and hopefully a negative family history. Follow a good diet, exercise daily, and do not shop for a heart diagnosis- enjoy life to its' fullest. ...Read more

Rephrase: Not quite sure what you're asking here. I think you might be asking if you had encephalitis because there was an abnormality on the brain MRI and abnormal spinal fluid? If that's the case, then yes , it could be inflammation/cerebritis/encephalitis. ...Read more

I have been experiencing moderat to high pains in the psoas major on both sides of mi back for a few years. What could cause this?

Prolonged sitting: Not for sure with only a little information, but with prolonged sitting, we can cause shortening of our psoas, leading to pulling in our back when we stand. This can be seen in people anywhere from being confined to a wheelchair to new office jobs to students cramming for tests. Try stretching by extending your legs at your hips. I hope that helps! ...Read more

Pregnancy older: Women in their fifties can become pregnant, although less often, so some form of contraception is needed. I would consider consistent condom use to be the most natural un-drug option which is probably enough for an older couple. I would consider an IUD to be the most natural "hands off" contraception. I would consider other natural options to be taking your chances. Abstinence? ...Read more

Is there a test to detect autoantibodies against metabotropic glutamate receptors?

Is there a test to detect autoantibodies against metabotropic glutamate receptors?

You asked for it: Yes, there is. It's for research. Abs to the mGluR1 subunit of metabotropic Glu receptor 1 have been found in small groups of ataxia pts. They're also detected in nonimmunological neurological diseases eg stroke & trauma but these may be epiphenomena (due to spillage of cell contents outside the blood-brain barrier). If you're concerned, my advice is: Find something else to worry about. ...Read more

I tested positive for P53 autoantibodies. Do I have an underlying cancer? Medical ref sites tell me that they are not seen in normal population.

I tested positive for P53 autoantibodies.  Do I have an underlying cancer?  Medical ref sites tell me that they are not seen in normal population.

Not a screen: Little is known about these. After forty years around pathology, I have seen plenty of tumor markers used as cancer screens, with the false positives generating lots of expense and fear. Get a good general cancer screen and assuming that you are clear, be thankful for good health. ...Read more
