What happens with pinal manipulation under anesthesia?

What happens with pinal manipulation under anesthesia?

See below: The use of spinal manipulation under anesthesia is done by chiropractors. Once you are completely relaxed under anesthesia the chiropracter will flex and press on your spine. Iit has not been verified as effective by independent studies. I would check the MRI or ct used to make this decision with a md before proceeding. ...Read more

What does a nerve test consist of? Have one booked due to pins and needles in baby finger

~40min of irritation: It's like an electrician giving you small shocks upstream and measuring responses downstream in your nerves, and about 15 min of poking with a needle.

Gives great info about nerve and muscle function though!

Got pins and needles and prickly sensations all over had this for two months blood test done all ok what could it be?

Got pins and needles and prickly sensations all over had this for two months blood test done all ok what could it be?

Depends which tests: No specific problem comes to mind but blood work could help rule certain things in or out along with a thorough medical examination. Before, completely believing that "blood test done all ok" is actually accurate can you specify which tests were done and exactly what the results were? Also, tell us if your symptoms are concentrated in certain parts of the body as opposed to "all over?". ...Read more

Hi, my egfr came in at 80 (I'm 45) and have been trying to pin down the genesis of my hypothyroid-like symptoms. Doc is not running further tests?

Hi, my egfr came in at 80 (I'm 45) and have been trying to pin down the genesis of my hypothyroid-like symptoms. Doc is not running further tests?

Some ideas: Glad kidneys are okay and trust hypothyroidism ruled out by labs. Trust anemia and HIV ruled out and physical exam no revealing. Difficult life situations, addison's, early lupus, myasthenia Travis, parasomnia, Lyme, no supplementing vegetarian, fibromyalgia, normal pressure hydrocephalus, B12 deficiency from gastric atrophy are only the beginning. Good luck. ...Read more

Fordyce Spots: Sounds like they could be Fordyce Spots. These are small white spots around the mouth or lips caused when sebum gets trapped in the glands. Not common to the lips but more easily seen there. They are completely benign and are of cosmetic concern only. If you are really bothered, they can be removed. See a dermatologist. ...Read more

Having light red vaginal discharg, hd unprotected sex 14 days back.  Period due date was 2 dys bak, bt did not hav.  Hom preg test, ful strip ws pin?

Pregnancy: I do not fully understand your comments. If you had unprotected sex and missed your normal period, you may be pregnant. Repeat the home pregnancy test and carefully follow the directions for interpreting the result. If you are unsure, see your physician and have the test performed in a lab. The discharge you have just may be a light period. If it persists, see your doctor. ...Read more

Classic lupus symptoms for 5 months but all tests negative also have raindrop sensations, dizziness, pins and needles, muscle weakness. Any ideas?

Classic lupus symptoms for 5 months but all tests negative also have raindrop sensations, dizziness, pins and needles, muscle weakness. Any ideas?

Trial of therapy: There are not a lot of things that look like classical lupus so if all the symptoms are there even with negative tests I would treat it and see if it gets better. Also, there are things that can cause a lupus-like syndrome. Usually the cause is a medication like procainamide, hydralazine, or infliximab. The list of medications is extensive so google it if you take lots of medications. ...Read more

I had a blood test a few weeks ago and since then I have experienced a dead arm feeling, pins and needles, and now sore fingers. Should I be worried?

I had a blood test a few weeks ago and since then I have experienced a dead arm feeling, pins and needles, and now sore fingers. Should I be worried?

Not necessarily: Feeling pins and needles in the arm can be due to many causes with the most likely being some compression of the nerves in the shoulder or arm from putting pressure onto the shoulder, elbow, or wrist. The procedure of having a blood test by itself should not cause these symptoms. If your symptoms continue and are not being relieved then please see a neurologist for a full neuro exam. ...Read more

Could i be pregnant my boyfriend and I had sex 10 weeks ago and there was a pin size hole in the condom about an inch up from the tip. I am on birth control and have had three periods since then. I took a pregnancy test 8 weeks after and it was negative.

Could i be pregnant my boyfriend and I had sex 10 weeks ago and there was a pin size hole in the condom about an inch up from the tip. I am on birth control and have had three periods since then. I took a pregnancy test 8 weeks after and it was negative.

If : If you were pregnant, you would no longer have periods. Women have a period if an unfertilized egg is passed through the uterus. If no egg implants into the uterus, then the uterine lining sheds, resulting in a period. Since you are having a period, then the uterine lining is shedding. It is wonderful that you are protecting yourself with a condom and the birth control pills. It is safe to say that your chances of being pregnant are very low. ...Read more

My eyelids twitch when eyes are closed, bad balance with rombergs tests, get pins and needles in arms/legs easy. Neurological issue?

My eyelids twitch when eyes are closed, bad balance with rombergs tests, get pins and needles in arms/legs easy. Neurological issue?

Some comments: First, regarding eyelids, this could be benign myokymia, and not due to underlying disease. The romberg test may be a result of vitamin deficiency, inflammatory disorder, or even inner ear issue, and altho abnormal, nonspecific. Fluctuating pins and needles may be due to nerve compression. The Best approach here is to get full neurological exam, and get a diagnosis which considers these issues. ...Read more
