Xray: xrays of the sacrum also will show signs of gas and particles in the large intestine. An xray takes 3 dimensions and reduces it to 2 dimensions, overlaying multiple structures into a flat image, distorting things to some degree. Pelvic phleboliths (vascular calicifications) are common. The sacrum also has foraminae where nerves pass, which may appear as dark spots. ...Read more

Mri of the lumbar but the radiologist didn't remark on a white round spot at the anterior sacrum s3 region.  ?

You could discuss this with the doctor who ordered the study who may be able to contact the radiologist to inquire, or seek a second opinion if still concerned. ...Read more

Pregnancy tests: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

When individual vertebrae are misaligned, this places strain on facets at different levels. You may benefit from gentle physical therapy or an honest chiropractor. If you have associated leg pain, see your pain management doctor asap. ...Read more

Benadryl (diphenhydramine) may help for both, but please speak with her pediatrician to better diagnose and treat this problem.

I'm 20 yrs old. I got struck in the back and then I got an MRI and there are 2 white spots the size of a grape on my lower back. What does that mean?

I'm 20 yrs old. I got struck in the back and then I got an MRI and there are 2 white spots the size of a grape on my lower back. What does that mean?

Depends: William, no one can really answer this because we don't know if the white spots are on your back or on your MRI! ASK the doctor who ordered the MRI to interpret it for you, or to explain it if the spots are on your back itself. Lots of things on MRI's are white. Most are normal. Good luck! ...Read more
