Dec 15, 2017 · Excrutiating thigh muscle pain in Bones, Joints & Muscles

It is my understanding that there at many causes of sciatica pain. When I had it the cause was a synovial cyst that was pushing on the sciatica nerve. I had this two times with two different cysts. I had surgery to remove the cysts (twice) and have not had a problem since. I was told this was a very rare cause and my doctor was especially surprised at the second one. These were about 12 years ago. I think I’m written up in some medical book!

@peach414144, Sjogren’s can go in either direction. In the beginning I had diarrhea and taking less Hydroxychloroquine helped a lot. I’m now pretty normal without diarrhea or constipation.

Dec 2, 2017 · Aortic Stenosis & Valve Replacement in Heart & Blood Health

@hopeful33250 I was diagnosed by a chest x-ray. I haven’t discussed it with any doctors because I wasn’t even aware of it until I got home from the hospital and read it in the report from my emergency room visit. No symptoms just referencing a test result.

@kanaazpereira Thank you for the information. I was in the emergency room with A Fib and that is when I had an x-ray and it showed the calcification. I had not been told that in the past. I have an appointment next week with the cardiologist to discuss Ablation and I plan to tell him about this new development and discuss that too. I have not had any symptoms that I’m aware of and only know this from the recent x-ray.

Nov 27, 2017 · bradycardia -- what's a too-low heart rate? in Heart Rhythm Conditions

My heart rate has been as low as 42 and it was because of skipped beats. I also have A fib where it goes up to 200. I’m all over the place. I don’t know the answer to your question. My doctor wasn’t real concerned about my low of 42 because it didn’t last long. Does it make you feel tired? I would ask the doctors for more information about what you should do. It is difficult enough without the unknown. I hope you find an answer and become more regular and a little higher.

I have recently been told that my aorta is calcified. Is that the same as Aortic stenosis? And is that always a valve problem?

@dmarano2000 I hope you can find out the cause and become pain free. It isn’t pleasant pain! Wish I had an answer for you.

@virtuous69 Actually mine weren’t tumors, they were synovial cysts. May be the same thing though.
