toddler complains of back pain while in carseat, stroller, and sitting straight up?


I have a 2 1/2 year old son who began complaining of back pain in October, we had just had a baby so I didn't really think much of it. Then in early November he wouldn't walk, after many x-rays and blood tests he was diagnosed with toxic synovitis. He began walking and was back to himself in a couple days, but continued to complain of back pain. He had follow up x-rays that were normal. Now he screams in his carseat that we've had long before all of this started, and he's uncomfortable in his stroller. I have since paid close attention to how he sits. When he sits he will not sit with weight equally distributed on both hips he shifts from side to side or needs to sit sideways with a leg up. He never complains of pain when he is standing, walking, jumping, climbing. He's very active and I don't know what to do. Our pediatrician ordered more x-rays but if they come back normal I don't know whom else to consult with, my brother is a chiropractor and he adjusted him, no better.

I would find some one who specializez in that area soemthing sounds VERY wrong...Like my MOM has been having back pain for 2 yrs NO ONE caught the fact that it was from cancer and she seen doc. for these two yrs......sos pls. get a sec. and 3rd opinion to be sure  (+ info)

Pneumonia or just side effects from general anesthesia?


I had surgery on my ankle yesterday. They used general anesthesia and also they put local anesthesia in too. They put a tube in my throat to help me breathe. Now I am feeling like I hve a 100 pound block on my chest. Also my throat is very sore and its hard for anyone to hear me when i talk because i have been losing my voice. They had me swallow pills with water before the surgery. Could it be pneumonia? or could it just be from the anesthesia? Also, my muscles in my arms and both legs are very weak. But i am not running a fever please let me know. Also,if you could tell me about how long it takes for reactive synovitis of the joint takes to heal when you have surgery on it. Is it normal to still have your whole foot numb after about 24 hrs after local anesthesia? Thank you!
----------

You are most likely experiencing after-effects of the anesthesia..and yes..your foot can still be numb...when I had my (5th) knee surgery (on the same leg!) he gave me "extra" doses of lidocaine (numbing stuff) to help me through the 1st day...it is entirely normal...and if they had to cut through any tendons during your surgery...you foot could be numb for weeks or months..
Anytime you have questions like this...always call your Dr...they know what they've done to you..and can best assuage your fears...  (+ info)

Can anyone explain MRI terminology?


I have to wait for my doctor to explain my MRI but I'm having trouble deciphering some of the medical terminology. Can anyone help?
I stepped off a curb in January, had a couple of fractures that healed but still had pain and ankle locking up. I finally had an MRI and here are portions of the MRI that I wasn't sure about:
Joint Fluid: No significant effusion. Borderline synovitis. Mild soft tissue inflammation surrounding the ankle.
Ankle Mortise: No osteochondral lesion.
Muscle and Tendon: Inflammation partially surrounds the posterior tibialis and peroneal tendons. Flexor hallucis longus, flexor digitorum longus, Achilles and extensor tendons are intact and unremarkable.
Ligaments: Abnormal anterior talofibular and calcaneofibular ligaments, consistent with tear and attempted fibrotic repair. Anterior talofibular ligament intact. Deltoid and spring ligaments intact.
Subtalar Joint: Mild inflammation. No interosseous ligament disruption or coalition.
Plantar Fascia: Borderline thickening at the calcaneus. Questionable early calcaneal spur.
Findings consistent with old tears of the anterior talofibular and calcaneofibular ligaments and secondary early fibrosis. Soft tissue inflammation surrounding the ankle, also surrounds the posterior tibialis and peroneal tendons.
Thanks so much - I'm hoping this can tell them something and what we should do next! I'm ready to feel better!
----------

Joint Fluid: It means that you have some inflammation of the sacs lining the joing.

Ankle Mortise: no contusions or bruising on your bones or cartilage

Muscle and Tendons: Some minor swelling and inflammation around the tibia and on top of the tendons.

Ligaments: This means that you have had some calcium build up from the injury. Fibrotic repair refers to the fibronogen that nets the injury together and binds it so that allows it to heal where the bone is together.

Subtalar Joint: Mild inflammation no major damage to the bony process within the ligament.

Plantar Fascia (Thick band on the bottom of your foot): It means that you may have a problem with a spur that is forming in your foot.

This means that you have had previous injuries within the ankle, and that your ankle is slowly degenerating from the injuries that you have had.  (+ info)

Someone please explain this to me and what this injury entails as far as recovery is concerned.?


Torn inferior glenohumeral ligament (what does this ligament do?) and synovitis (i believe this is just fluid, correct?) osseous and cartilagenous (injury of the cartilage?) chronic injury of the posterior-inferior bony glenoid (this is a joint right? and chronic means it's an old injury?) trace amount of subacromial bursal fluid (is this just fluid built up from the tear?)
----------

A ligament is the fibrous ,slightly elastic tissue which bind bone ends together thus keeping joints in place.Glenhumeral and glenoid refer to your shoulder joint.Bursa are small fluid sacks in each joint which act as shock absorbers in your joints.Your injury allowed some of that fluid to leak into the joint and can cause pain and inflammation but should eventually reabsorb on it's own.As for recovery your orthopedist should inform you of any required treatment such as surgical repair or physical therapy or rehab or prescribe analgesic or anti-inflammatory meds.I hope you heal quickly and God Bless.  (+ info)

Medical Diagnosis RT Hip pain R/O synovitis, what does that mean?


This is my niece's diagnosis. I really don't understand what it really means. Does R/O mean synovitis is not there & it's not the reason for hip pain? if not, what could be the cause of hip pain
----------

Synovitis is inflammation of the lining of the joint. R/O (rule out). To rule it out means this is a possible diagnosis and further testing is necessary to confirm this diagnosis. I don't want to alarm you but it may indicate rheumatoid arthritis. Please follow your doctor's advice about nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications and your niece may consider seeing a rheumatologist.  (+ info)
