The Doctor is getting me set up to have a Discogram. I cannot have an MRI due to the fact i have bi- laterial cochlear implants. Has any one had this done recently. And any after effect after this. I am going surgery in near future. Pain has become so bad. Its made my life miserable. I want my life back.
Any recommendations on this or surgery is much appreciated
I’ve read through several Q&A and don’t see info on some of my abnormalities. Anyone have easy or unexplained bruises all over you? Extreme sensitivity to tempatures? When feet are swollen they turn purple-redish color? My SI joints hurt but recently while I’m trying to exercise or sit my tailbone hurts, anyone else? Just trying to assure myself my rheumotogist is on the right track. Thank you
Has anyone tried Lidocaine shots into the trigger points in muscles in the back? I had my first round and felt much better but it only lasted about 3 weeks.
I am having a Fundoplication surgery on Friday and am wondering if this has gotten so bad for others that they have had the same surgery and what the outcome was? I am slightly concerned that it is being caused by my AS and Fybro and that even after surgery I may still have the issue. Have others gone through the same with medications failing and no other option other than having this done. Thanks
I saw Dr Fleming after Dr Chamberlain referred me to him. Has anyone had surgery at Adena with him? If so could you please let me know how you are doing and when you had your surgery.
I have had three sets of nerve block injections over the past seven months. I am scheduled for radio frequency ablation in 12 days. I am wondering if people get relief from them. Thanks in advance.
Managed to break my spine middle and lumbar region as well as breaking the rods yes I cannot understand but
I have had continuing had pelvic pain not touched by 3 surgeries to the spine is it this spondylitis
Is anyone knows one? I'm based in Toronto Ontario, Canada.
I have AS since 2000 and was diagnose only in 2008.
I took in the past some pain-killers and worked with physiotherapists.
I stopped with the medications and the physiotherapists weren't a good fit, mainly because of there lack of knowledge.
Thanks and best,
Has anyone have this problem?
