Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

why do you think you are suffering from a muscular degeration syndrome?

Dr. David :

what symptoms are you having?

Dr. David :

besides insomnia.

JACUSTOMER-magnbjmi- :

i have a very bad pain in my lower regions of my spinal cord and the sorrounding areas. my walking and general movement has been impaired do you think i might have oesteoperosis as well or do i just need massage and pain killers?

Dr. David :

osteoporosis is rare in young men

Dr. David :

and would not be causing your symptoms.

Dr. David :

if you have bad pain in your lower back, you could have a herniated disk in your back pressing on nerves coming from the spinal cord.

Dr. David :

I would ask your doctor for a spine xray or better yet a spine MRI scan to check for herniated disk or degenerative disk disease in your back causing pain.

Dr. David :

I would start there.

Dr. David :

were you trying to rate my service before?

Dr. David :

do you have any other questions?

JACUSTOMER-magnbjmi- :

i have just been to my doctor and he mentioned that i strained my muscles and he prescribed me pain killers and callisthenics, i am still unsatisfied...if i have a herniated disk at the base of my spine and the x-ray and MRI scan what do you suggest i do? shall i have massage and homoepathy? do you think i ahve t

Dr. David :

if you have a herniated disk, you need to see a pain management doctor or spine doctor

Dr. David :

for possible steroid injections into the herniated disk to decrease swelling so the disk goes back into place.

Dr. David :

you can also try physical therapy and anti-inflammatories to help decrease swelling there too.

JACUSTOMER-magnbjmi- :

do you think i have this problem because of my ethnicity or that my chakra points are unallied, or is it that my bones are evolving?

Dr. David :

what is your ethnicity?

Dr. David :

most likely this is not due to your ethnicity

JACUSTOMER-magnbjmi- :

i am Celtic-Romano

Dr. David :

no, this is not due to your ethnicity.

Dr. David :

are you overweight?

Dr. David :

being overweight can put extra pressure on your lower back.

JACUSTOMER-magnbjmi- :

i am 5"9 10.5 stones i think i slept badly and i had a vague suspicion that it was spiritual attacks,,, i conjectured even that its because of air pollution

JACUSTOMER-magnbjmi- :

i don't think i have a herniated disk because i can swivel my hips and dance a little

Dr. David : Dancing will not cause herniated disk
Dr. David : this is not a spiritual attack
Dr. David : disk can come out when you get older
Dr. David : and your back muscles get weak
Dr. David :

let me know if you have other questions.
