tingling in arms and feet and legs and back

I am a dwaff and i am 47 I've had a mri and emg and came back ok. I've got l4/5 and l3/4 and l5/s1 what will they do for me when i go back to my neurologist will they tell me to carry on with my pregabalin. they don't seem to do any think so can you help me thank you.

Hello Deborah,
Dwarfs have spinal congenital, from birth, anomalies, peculiarities. Often the foramena, holes, where the nerves emerge from the spine are smaller than usual.

Hence your tingling, most likely.

That doesn't mean it's not treatable, just it's likely to be more difficult and take longer.

Can you send me a copy of the MRI report?

Meantime, ask if you can have some vitamin B complex shots. They sting! In the butt.

This is the time to find a good chiropractor ... start hunting in your area.

Hello Deborah,
Your page was unfortunately hacked, and I had to delete some material. The MRI report was probably there.

Sorry, but would you please send the report again.

Groin pain

Groin pain

hello my name is deborah

I am 47 and 4 foot tall. I've got dwarfism.

I've had a mri and emg test my all body hurts so much with pain in my groins and my legs and arms so much i keep thinking there some think bad going to happen

I know there going to be things happening because I'm a dwarf but this pain I can't do much like walking and sitting

I hope some one can help me thank you from debbie god bless you all

Hello Debbie,
I wouldn't assume that all this is because of your dwarfism. I answer at least four letters each and every day from people suffering from body and limb pain.

But, like I said before, the openings where the nerves emerge from the spine are smaller in dwarfs. Can you send me a copy of your MRI report please?

Groin pain can be a pinched nerve, for example a condition called Maignes syndrome but if you are having difficulty walking, with groin pain, I'd be more inclined to think of early
hip arthritis or a condition called
Femoro Acetabular Impingement syndrome ...

Do this little test for me: Lie on your back on a bed, and pull your knee to your chest, then towards the opposite shoulder, and then make a circle with your hip. Is there stiffness or groin pain when you do this. Is one hip different to the other? Let me know.

arms and legs

I have a few things going on I'm only 4 foot and 47

my legs and arms and face and my behind are so painful

I've had a mri and emg test and they said every think was ok

my knees are not right can some one help me and tell me what's happening.

Hello again Deborah,
The next step is a good chiropractic examination to see if chiropractic treatment could help find the source of these pains.

For facial pain, think jaw joint. Do they click, pop or hurt? TMJ anatomy ...

Interesting challenges of the day

1. Mr S is a 76 year old man with neck pain of some 9 months duration. Luckily, most of the discomfort is upper cervical which is only rarely arthritic; his lower cervical spine is a degenerative mess that I've left alone. After seven treatments his pain and stiffness is 50 percent better, and he's happy in the circumstances. He can sleep through the night now and that makes a huge difference.

2. Mr P is 32 year old man with very severe lower back pain radiating to the big toe which is 30 percent numb. He had an episode three weeks ago, took anti inflammatories and was soon better as is typical of the medial disc herniation. But before it healed, after a trivia it came roaring back, much worse. The characteristic crossed sign was evident; sitting in a chair, straightening the right leg provoked severe left back pain and tingling in the leg. He's doing well.

3. Severe lower back pain is scary; just ask Mrs P. Just watching her get out of the car I she was in trouble; she had a slipped disc at L4 making her lean towards the opposite side; luckily she had no pain in the leg. Despite family pressure that this was far too severe for a chiropractor, she persevered. Within five days she was standing upright, and after two weeks almost painfree. 

Despite a hectic job, she wisely took my advice and stayed home for what I call exercising bed rest.

4. Mr S has had lower back, groin and back of thigh and calf pain for fourth months.

He has a pincer deformity in the hip causing the stabs in the groin, and a degenerative facet causing the sciatica. Both are responding well to chiropractic and he's well pleased; sixty five percent better after three treatments.

5. Mr T is a wise man; he's taken a warning TIA seriously and has lost 15 pounds, and has at least as much again to lose. A change to a low starch diet and half hour daily walk has made the difference; but the walking is making his foot and back miserable. The expensive orthotic is hopeless; luckily his hips and back are fine, but he needs a simple heel lift.

6. I too have had serious lower back issues, luckily fixed by my own chiropractor; so I too have to do my exercises, take care when lifting supers full of honey, gardening and using the chainsaw. Regaining the function of your spine is just as important as the pain.

7. My own granddaughter, only 7 is hypermobile giving her pelvic, knee and ankle issues. Xrays show a mildly dysplastic hip. Years ago we would have called it growing pains. She too regularly needs chiropractic care and luckily responds well. Increased range of motion is more difficult than too stiff in my opinion. Our care is for kids too.

8. This 65 year old lady is a serious gardener; every day she is bending, lifting and digging for 2 to 3 hours a day. It regularly catches her in the sacroiliac joint, so she has a treatment once a month that sorts it out. She does her lower back exercises faithfully.

9. This 88 year old lady is an inspiration; every day she is busy in the community. With a nasty scoliosis she manages very well with a chiropractic adjustment every six weeks and exercises faithfully done.  

10. Mr X is a 71 year old retired man who wants to continue with maintenance care every six to eight weeks; he had suffered from two years of lower back pain when he first came a year ago. He has no discomfort now after 8 chiropractic treatments, but is aware that danger lurks.

11. Mrs C has been having severe headaches, and taking a lot of analgesics. It's a non complicated upper cervical facet syndrome, and she's doing well.

12. Mr D is a 38 old year man with chronic shoulder pain after a rotator cuff tear playing cricket. It responded well to treatment, but he knows he must do his exercises every day; for two years he couldn't sleep on that shoulder.

13. Mr D, a 71 year old man, has a severe ache in the shoulder and midback since working above his head. Trapped nerve tests are negative but he has advanced degenerative joints of Luschka; after just two treatments he is 50 percent better. Can we reach 90?

And so the day goes; chiropractors shouldn't be treating the elderly most medical sites state but that's so much bunkum.

Interesting questions from visitors

Greetings, Dr B.
You helped me quite some time back with a soothing and professional response which turned out to be exactly correct. I now consult a local chiropractor. You write a superb newsletter, too.

Your own unresolved problem. Pose a question

Knowing that up to 70% of the time the correct diagnosis is made with no examination, no special tests, no xrays, but just from the history, there's a fair chance I can add some insight to your unresolved problem. But at least 30% of the time, I may be quite wrong! Give plenty of detail if you want a sensible reply.

You visited this chiropractic help site no doubt because you have a problem that is not resolving and want to know more about what chiropractors do.

The quickest and most interesting way is to read one of my ebooks of anecdotes. Described by a reader as gems, both funny and healthful, from the life and work of a chiropractor, you'll love them. Priced right at $2.99, though Kindle fiddles the price without telling me.
