Feb 20, 2019 · Possible PMR OR Lora diagnosis in Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR)

You are at the average age for PMR to start. I have had PMR for 14 years. I presume the med you are referring to is prednisone. As the dose is reduced symptoms often reappear. Given a few days they will often disappear. PMR is condition that often seems to change from one day to the next. I was in a study about 10 years or so back. Whatever was in the weekly shots I was taking left me feeling wonderful. However, the shots had one bad side affect and the study was stopped. I don't like the side affects of prednisone, but I have pretty much learned to live with them.

Feb 9, 2019 · Cervical stenosis in Spine Health

My husband had spine surgery in the lumbar portion of his back six years ago. His surgery was done by a neuro surgeon in Daytona Beach Florida. He was in the hospital for a week. He then had in home service by a nurse who came to the house about 3 times a week for 3 weeks. He was only allowed in the car with me driving to the grocery store once a week. (We own a vacation house in Florida) We could not return (fly home) to Alaska until 2 months after the surgery.

Jan 1, 2019 · how long after a percocet pill before I should drive ,work etc. in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Sorry to give you bad news. There is NO good time to wait after taking a Percocet to start driving or operating any other machinery. If the pharmacy gave you a paper with your prescription describing the side affects, etc., I suggest that you go back and read it or call your doctor to answer your questions pertaining to your prescription.

Dec 27, 2018 · Soft tissue rheumatism syndrome? in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I don't know what caused one leg to be shorter than the other in your body. I do know that all of our legs differ in length a little. However, to much of a difference will cause other physical problems. With me, I had a total hip replacement and six weeks later my leg gave out from under me and I ended up on the floor breaking my femur. After the femur was repaired I was left with that leg nearly two inches shorter than the other. I struggled for nearly thee years with a limp and back problems caused by the imbalance before I found out that my leg could be made longer. (No joke) I WANTED that kind of surgery. I had it done mid-December 2017. It is now just over a year later. I am very happy that I had my leg made longer. My back problem has improved and I get around better without the limp.

Nov 17, 2018 · Muscle and Joint pain in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville does have a Rheumatology department. I have Poly Myalgia. I have had it for 14 years. About 12 years ago I was in a study through May Clinic/Rochester. Since I bought a vacation home in Florida I have been going to the Jacksonville Mayo. If you want to go there, call the clinic directly and tell them you want to make an appointment with the Rheumatology department. It's as simple as that. I don't like prednisone, but I have learned to live with it and all of it's side affects. And, lastly, a simple SED test is used to diagnose poly myalgia.

I have some ideas, but since I am not in the medical field I will be quiet there. What kinds of specialists have you seen? A Rheumatologist might be worth while. If it were me I would head to the Mayo clinic or another large medical center. I have Poly Myalgia. I have had it for 14 years. I was misdiagnosed 4 times by good doctors before am ANP got it right.
