Special testing needs to be done along with a biopsy of nerve/muscle to nail the diagnosis. ...Read more

Back of Head, upper neck stiffness, headache, heaviness in right ear, weakness in legs, numbness & radiating pain in left arm&leg. ECG normal. Worry?

Neurologist: These symptoms appear more neurological rather than cardiac. Numbness of left arm and leg can be caused by pathology in the right cerebral cortex which occurs from blockage in the right carotid artery or an intracerebral artery in the right side of the brain circulation. I recommend a prompt evaluation in the hospital emergency room where a brain cat scan and carotid artery ultrasounds can be done ...Read more

Probably not : It depends on family history and risk factors whether or not this is cardiac in nature. Being a female makes your risk factors much lower. Furthermore, your symptoms are almost everywhere leading me to believe that this is more viral than anything else. viruses can cause symptoms as described by you. ...Read more

My 29 month old daughter has been complaining of back pain, leg and arm pain she has an undiagnosed bleeding/blood disorder could the pain be related?

My 29 month old daughter has been complaining of back pain, leg and arm pain she has an undiagnosed bleeding/blood disorder could the pain be related?

Depends on which: bleeding disorder she has. I assume a pediatric hematologist is evaluating her. Whether related to her blood disorder or not, she's in pain & needs to see her pediatrician. Kids that age don't complain about aches & pains for no reason. Take her temperature when she complains. 100.4 degrees F or above is a fever. Note any joint swelling, tenderness, heat, limp,decreased appetite or activity level. ...Read more
