    Hello.
    I have been struggling with groin pain for almost 2 years. Have tried most things, but never get results.
    The first time I noticed pain was in May 2013. I had 7-8 football training sessions a week and went to the sports line in high school. Had gym 4/5 days a week where 2 of the days were football with top sports. The football training has been on artificial turf and the gym classes were on a hard floor, so there was a lot of strain.

    In the run-up to May 2013, I suddenly got a little sore in the left groin during an exercise. I gave up for the day and tried again the next workout, the pain was still there. I went to a physiotherapist and got some exercises to strengthen my groin. The exercises were done for 3 weeks. Did not get any results from the exercises.

    I changed clubs and got a new physiotherapist, he gave me about the same exercises and I did them for about 4 weeks without progress. Then he sent me to a chiropractor. He tested a little on my softness and whether everything was straight and straight.
    I got some stretching exercises to become softer and more mobile. It felt like it helped a bit, but maybe it was just because I got softer from the exercises.

    I was sent for an MRI. It turned out that my groins were absolutely fine.
    Has had pain in both left and right groin, but has mostly been in the left.
    Then I became a menu therapist / hip specialist. I was told that I had a sore back and a slightly crooked pelvis, which caused my groin to be strained. Got some exercises that would make my pelvis straighter. The exercises were to be done for 3 months. At the same time as I went to the manual therapist, I also went to the physio. I explained this to the physio with the curve in the back. I got exercises to strengthen the muscles around the pelvis.

    After 2-3 months with the exercises and hard training, I have had less pain in the back and become straighter / more stable in the pelvis. But is still unsure that this is the problem.

    Can acupuncture be a solution?

    Had greatly appreciated a feedback on what you think the cause of the pain may be and how it may possibly disappear.

      Hi Ola, to sum up a bit and come up with some follow-up questions.

      - Your pain started under severe physical exertion in May 2013. This gives us reason to believe that it is musculoskeletal. One of the most common muscles that is affected during football is the iliopsoas (hip flexor).
      - Which movements are painful? Then we think of both the back and the hip.
      - Was an MRI of your lower back also taken or just the groin / hip? A disc herniation can refer to pain in the groin if it affects the 'right' nerve.

      More comprehensive answers will come as we weed out a few other diagnoses with such questions.

    I've been to a bunch of websites, mostly from professionals like
    physiotherapists and chiropractors.

    What's a little weird is that almost everyone recommends these exercises where one
    bends the wrist backwards, (extension?)

    I'm reasonably sure it's just this exercise as always
    makes me get this pain in my left wrist.

    I want feedback, opinions on this.

    And one more thing, all websites from physio and chiropractors should include
    the importance of not stretching too much if you have hypermobile joints.
    This is something I know that physiotherapists and chiropractors rarely do
    mentions. these are things I have read on myself.

    I go for treatment myself, weekly.

      Hi 'Wrist',

      Sorry late reply.

      The recommended exercises must and should be adapted to your specific diagnosis. Maybe the extension exercises you are aiming for are 'eccentric extension exercises'? They are intended for lateral epicondylitis / tennis elbow, and have good evidence.

      You mention that you have pain in your left wrist - what kind of pain is it? Are they constant, or do they vary with load - and do you have night pain? Do you also have pain in your elbow?

      Have photos been taken of your wrist? Have you been examined for carpal tunnel syndrome?

    Hey!
    Read the page here about Plantar Facitt.
    Wondering about the inversion exercise mentioned, do not understand how to perform it. After several years of suffering I am desperate to do something active to try to get better…

    SVAR
    • hurt says:

      Hi Monica,

      Thank you for your question regarding our plantar fasciitis exercises (read: https://www.vondt.net/ovelser-og-uttoyning-av-plantar-fascia-haelsmerter/)

      Inversion of the feet means pulling the soles of the feet towards each other (inwards) from a neutral position. In the beginning, you can simply do this without extra resistance - then to activate the right muscle use that can help relieve the sole of the foot and plant your fascia. As you pull the soles of your feet inwards towards each other, you should feel that you are engaging the muscles on the outside of the calf (peroneus).

      Can you do it?

      Some small follow-up questions:

      1) Have you been confirmed if you have plantar fasciitis with or without heel spurs? If there are heel spurs, it may indicate that the problem has persisted for a while and that it may be more difficult to overcome.

      2) Have you tried a specially adapted heel support to relieve the arch of the foot and the foot blade (if not, we recommend this: https://www.vondt.net/behandling-plantar-fascitt-plantar-fascitt-haelstotte/)?

      3) What treatment measures have you already tried? Have you tried pressure wave therapy?

      4) How did the problem start? A lot of overuse on hard surfaces without good, supported shoes, maybe?

        The exercise: that is, sitting on a chair, for example, with your legs hanging loose, also your big toes / feet bend towards each other?

        Has not been diagnosed with heel spurs, and does not feel that it is.
        2. Have not tried heel support. Has had soles adapted by a physiotherapist. Is not the heel support for sale in Norway?
        3. Soles only.
        4. Overload and too rapid increase of load, combined with overweight.

        SVAR
        • hurt says:

          Yes, simple and easy. 🙂

          Heel spurs can be detected by RTG, MRI or diagnostic ultrasound.

          2. Most sold are the type of gel that you put in the heel of the shoe. We have not seen a similar full-support like this here in stores, no. But it may well exist.

          Ok, then you may want to have a little high focus on exercises and training now - remember that there will be some very tough weeks ahead of you (especially the first four), as you actually break down muscles (thus less support) before you get so-called 'supercompensation' in the relevant muscles.

          Read about pressure wave treatment of plantar fasciitis here:

          https://www.vondt.net/trykkbolgebehandling-av-fotsmerter-grunnet-plantar-fascitt/

          Must be the most effective according to research. Combined with specific training.

          4. Understand. Jogging on asphalt?

          SVAR
          • Anonym says:

            Then I should try that exercise?

            May check for possible heel spurs in a while if it does not improve.

            Have tried gel pad under the heel, was cruelly hurt. Now I have soles that support under the arch of the foot, and it feels good. Shoes with slightly high heels also work well, at work and such.

            Did not jog on asphalt, but was probably too eager when I started 🙁

            Hope that exercises, stretching, relief and weight loss will help now.

      Hi Ole,

      Feel free to tell us a little more fully about your problems and pain - then we can give you a slightly more detailed answer and maybe help you a little along the way.

      - When and how did the back pain start?

      - What kind of medication are you on? Is it muscle relaxing? Pain relieving? Nerve painkillers? What are they called? Maybe you have been prescribed the wrong type of painkiller in relation to your problem?

      - How would you describe the pain? Like stabbing electric pain? Numbness? Have you experienced muscle weakness in your left leg?

      - Does the pain in the groin and hip get worse when you bend forward? It can definitely sound like you have sciatica symptoms (read: https://www.vondt.net/hvor-har-du-vondt/vondt-i-korsryggen/isjias/)

  5. RR says:

    Hi! Have some questions regarding heel pain. After finishing my pregnancy, I have had pain in both heels. From having pelvic pain and little movement to going on wheelbarrows, some asphalt and gravel. Have felt that I have been sore on the outside of my feet, but not hurt. Suddenly one day I felt good under both heels. Went to the doctor who said there was sebaceous gland inflammation in the heels due to being overweight and that I had become more active. I had read about plantar fasciitis, but the doctor thought it was not when the pain is under and on the sides of the heel. Got Orudis to lubricate. Got soles from naprapat. He also thought it was not plantar fasciitis since the pain was not far in front of the feet. Where should the pain be due to sebaceous gland inflammation in the heel? 2 weeks ago I got heel pain and neither soles nor relief helps. I freeze down and lift my toes every day. Goes with sneakers inside and out. How long can this be? Has an agreement on pressure wave treatment eventually with naprapat. Forecast to be good?
    RR.

    SVAR
    • hurt says:

      Hi RR,

      Your pain has persisted for 2 weeks, so you are still in the acute phase of the problem. Both plantar fasciitis and heel pad inflammation can take weeks, months or sometimes as long as a full year before healing. It all depends on how things look inside your foot. This brings us to our first question:

      - Has an RTG or MRI been taken of your feet? At RTG you will in many cases see heel spurs if it is plantar fasciitis. On MRI, you can see thickening of the plantar fascia if there is plantar fascia.

      - It sounds like you are taking the right steps by lifting your toes and icing daily. Do you stretch plantar fascia as well?

      - READ MORE: https://www.vondt.net/ovelser-og-uttoyning-av-plantar-fascia-haelsmerter/

      You otherwise mention that you have 'agreed pressure wave treatment with naprapat'. This sounds a bit nonsensical if you ask us, as pressure wave treatment should ONLY be used specifically against findings (eg after diagnostic ultrasound and MRI imaging). Unfortunately, many people use too much pressure wave therapy without knowing what it looks like in your foot - thus there is a high chance that they will not hit the right areas and that you throw money out the window. A naprapath has no refund. In comparison, treatment by both chiropractors or manual therapists is partially reimbursed. It may also be worthwhile to check if you have health insurance that covers such treatment.

      - READ MORE: https://www.vondt.net/trykkbolgebehandling-av-fotsmerter-grunnet-plantar-fascitt/

      GPs, chiropractors or manual therapists can all refer to such imaging diagnostics - and the latter two also have extensive training in the treatment of the mentioned diagnoses, which in turn can lead to faster examination and more effective treatment.

      We have a recommendation regarding plantar fascia heel support:

    Hello. I have struggled with pain all over my body since 2010. The neck is worst, it has been painful since 2005. But the thing is that when I train on an elliptical machine or go for a walk, I have tingling under the soles of my feet and it "sticks" in my hands and arms . Have been to the doctor and have not been examined for either. Have also been on MRI of the neck, recommended by a naprapath. No prolapse of the neck, only wear. What can I say to my doctor, because now I'm tired of exercise not helping the pain I have.

    • vondt.net says:

      Hi Kari-Anne,

      Was there anything special that happened before 2005 or 2010? Trauma or accident or the like? Or did the pain come gradually?

      'Tingling' can be caused by a number of things, but can often be related to nerve or artery function. Do you have a family history of cardiovascular events / diagnoses?

      The idea behind MRI of the neck was good, but there are other things than prolapse that can also cause similar symptoms.

      How did you respond to treatment? Has your therapist tried several different procedures?

      As a simple self-measure, we recommend that you start with mobilization exercises on a foam roller, as these can improve artery function (clinically proven).

    August 2012; MR thoracal column; light to moderate disc bulging C5 / C6. Slight degenerative changes Th6 / Th7 but otherwise no remarks to be seen in the thoracic column. No signal changes to be seen in Medulla. MR LS -Column: The three lower discs are dehydrated but Inge nominal value highly reduced. Slight disc bulges on these three levels and also with signs of anulus fibrosus rupture on the two lower ones. At level L5 / S1, the disc touches the left S1 root but has no obvious effect on it. At other levels no signs of an effect on neurogenic structures. What would you recommend that I can do with this, I have a lot of pain when sitting and walking, have been given a wheelchair. Have a physio class every week and practice yoga myself, but sadly a lot of pain that makes me unable to go further than a few steps.

      - First of all, where is the pain and how long have you had it? Did they occur acutely (eg after an accident or trauma?) Or did they come gradually?
      - You mention that the disc touches the S1 root - this will normally mean that you get a root affection. Do you have electric, excruciating pain down to the leg and foot on the left side? Do you have muscle weakness in your left leg?
      - It is mentioned that you can not go further than a few steps before you get hurt. Do you feel your legs failing or the like, so you have to sit down for a break? Does your lower back and legs hurt when you bend forward?
      - You write 'MR thoracal column', this will normally not include the neck, but you still write about the levels C5 / C6 - does that mean that you have taken an MRI picture of the neck as well?
      - Yoga is good, versatile exercise, so it's nice that you do this. Otherwise, general movement is encouraged, preferably light walks on rough terrain.
      - You go to the physio 1x a week. How did you respond to treatment? Has your therapist tried several different procedures?
      - Cold treatment, e.g. Biofreeze (read more / buy here: http://nakkeprolaps.no/produkt/biofreeze-spray-118-ml/) can relieve muscle, joint and nerve pain.

    ISCHIOFEMORAL IMPINGEMENT; Hi, I have been struggling with constant aching pain in the seat and down the back of the thigh for several years. It dots like needles under the foot. I have been to every conceivable therapist. Labrum injury was detected in 2012. I was treated for labrum injury arthroscopically. They discovered during the arthroscopy that I had osteoarthritis in the hip joint. I had hoped that the pain down my foot would go away, but not then. In 2014, both X-rays and MRI showed a small space for the quadratus femoris, which corresponds to ischiofemoral impingement. I have not yet received any help for this. Find little information about this in Norway, only on foreign sites. A year ago, I was finally prescribed neurontin by my GP. Before this I slept a maximum of 2 hours a day due to the pain.

    Hey!

    I only have one question: I have pain in the right side of my lower back at the top of my right buttock. This happened after a week of training, I wondered if it could be a muscle knot, since it is not the skeleton I have pain in, but at a point next to it. I can run and walk well, but it is when I bend my back or lean on my right leg that it hurts. I have used a foam roller to try to "soften it", but it still hurts just as much. So I wonder what I should do?

    SVAR
    • vondt.net says:

      Hi Patrick,

      There may be a lock in your iliosacral joint with associated muscle knots / myalgias in the quadratus lumborum and gluteal muscles. Is it possible that you got some skewed load when you trained? For example, when lifting the ground? Were there any special areas you wanted to strengthen this time?

      It is important to remember that muscles are connected to joints - and joints move back on muscles. Thus, the problem is never 'just a muscle knot'. Therefore, it is important to get treatment for joints and muscles - as well as start with self-measures (as you have done) and specific exercises.

      Can you tell us a little more about the type of exercises you do in training? Then we can go through which exercises may be unfavorable for you - or which may give you a little too much pressure in the lower back.

      Hi Ane,

      Plantar fasciitis is boring stuff - first and foremost you should start with these 4 exercises (both stretching and light strength). Self-measures and self-treatment do not cost a penny. Unfortunately, it is also the case that you will probably need a few rounds (2-4x) with pressure wave treatment - this is because the heel and front of the heel towards the plantar fascia need help with the vascularization (circulation) to promote healing.

      Yes, joint locks often occur in the foot due to incorrect loading. A chiropractor or manual therapist should be able to help you with both pressure wave treatment, combined with joint treatment of the foot - so you do not have to go to 2 different therapists for this.

      Do you want a recommendation from a therapist?

    Hi, Right after Easter I woke up at night with severe pain in one foot, on the inside under the arch. It felt like you could imagine getting a knife stabbed. The pain persisted for a few seconds, then they were gone. They came and went about 7-8 times. Then there was nothing more until the night about a week later. Then I was awakened several times by the same intense pain. During the day yesterday, they came regularly, but not as intensely as they had been the night before. Last night it went better, but I feel a kind of tingling in my foot. Today I went to see my GP and she knew nothing. She recommended me to lubricate with ibux.

    • vondt.net says:

      Hi Gina,

      As you describe it, there can be many reasons. Did you also have leg pain or back pain? It sounds like a local or distal nerve irritation - and we recommend that you use a foot massage roller, stretch the arch of the foot (see exercises in our article '4 exercises against plantar fasciitis') and do light activation / strength exercises for the feet. If you also had radiation pain down the leg, it may be a nerve irritation in the lower back that gives referred pain / symptoms in the foot, then in the L5 or S1 nerve root. If you want to use more natural painkillers, we can recommend the cold treatment Biofreeze.

      Do you have a little more in-depth information about other things you have known? Are you doing better today?

    Hello.

    I write on behalf of my father who has struggled with headaches, toothaches and intense pressure in the left ear, temple and cheeks.

    He has been to outspoken oral surgeons, doctors, chief physicians, dentists, neurologists etc. He has taken MRI, CT without any kind of findings .. He has received injections in the back of the head to see if this relieves the pain something it does not. Dentists find nothing when they check thoroughly both during consultation and at X-ray. He had to pull a tooth again a few days ago, which he had a terrible pain in. It was also thoroughly rooted. Do you have any thoughts on what this could be? Or about any tips on what he can do? He inhibits this a lot. He is on his way to apply for disability benefits after several years at AAP.

    He has tried many different medications for chronic pain, tried some medications for migraines and other medications. He must have Pinex Major every day (which is a very strong painkiller). He has been to a physiotherapist, naprapath, chiropractor without any help. It hurts to see his father struggle the way he does. Do not know if it may have any connection, but when he was younger he broke his back he also broke his back again several years ago when he worked. The doctors say the fractures have nothing to do with these ailments he has now, but I always put a but there.

    Regards desperate daughter.

      Hi Ida Christine,

      This did not sound pleasant and we understand that it must be depressing to see his father in such a state. If your father is over 50 years old then my thought immediately goes against trigeminal neuralgia - which can cause intense pain in the areas you mention. Has this diagnosis been mentioned in the investigation?

      - The treatment for trigeminal neuralgia

      The treatment can be divided into drug treatment, neurosurgery and conservative treatment. Of medical treatment we find over-the-counter drugs, but also prescription drugs, including antiepileptic drugs (tegretol aka carbamazepine, neurontin aka gabapentin). Of painkillers clonazepam is often used (-pam is the same ending as diazepam, Valium, ie an antidepressant and anti-anxiety tablet) which is stated to be able to provide pain relief in combination with other drugs. Antidepressants are also used in the treatment of neuralgic pain. In certain extreme cases, neurosurgical procedures may be necessary, but then it is very important - due to the relatively high risk of injuries and the like - that you have tried everything else of conservative treatment and the like first. Due to surgery, blockade treatment can also be an option.

      Av conservative treatment methods so mention reputable National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke the following modalities; dry needle, physical therapy, chiropractic joint correction and hypnosis / meditation. These treatments can help the affected person with muscle tension and / or joint restrictions in the jaw, neck, upper back and shoulders - which can provide symptom relief and functional improvement. He should also receive treatment for associated myalgias in the jaw and neck that have most likely also occurred.

      PS - At what levels in the back did the fractures occur? The neck too?

      Regards.

        Thank you very much for the quick reply.
        My father is over 50 years old. He has a compression fracture in L1. He has been examined for trigeminal neuralgia and that is not what he has. He has tried several different antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications without any improvement. He goes to treatment where he is "broken up" and massaged in the neck / back and jaw areas. There too without any improvement. The only thing he says he has not tried is treatment for associated myalgias in the jaw and neck.

          Hi again, Ida Christine,

          Ok, in his case - with such long-term ailments - he must probably prepare for the fact that it can take 8-10 treatments aimed at the jaw before he notices that the myoses and muscle tensions go away - the treatment should then also consist of treatment against intraoral trigger points (with pterygoideus and lazy pterygoideus) - yes, this involves latex glove and treatment towards the muscle knot attachments inside the mouth (it can be very effective). Joint treatment sounds reasonable as far as it goes - otherwise it would have been easy for him to stiffen even more, which would have led to more pain in the end.

          - Has there been an attempt at dry needling / muscular needle treatment against the jaw? This actually has pretty OK evidence.
          - Has blockade treatment been used against the jaw joint, did you say? Or was it just a painkiller injection?

          Regards.

    Hello.

    I have crooked jaw. Been examined for it once, and operated on once to correct this. I'm not happy with the result. I now struggle with too tight muscles around the jaw, in the neck, neck and down the back. I have a headache at best once a day. At worst, I have a migraine. A few years ago I was diagnosed Fibromyalgia. Is there hope of saving a jaw like mine, or do I have to go the whole mill again with examination and jaw surgery?

      Hi Iris,

      As you know leads Fibromyalgia often to increased sensitivity in muscles and nerves. It has been seen that LDN (click here to read more about low-dose naltroxen) can be a useful treatment to alleviate this sensitivity - which may also be directly related to your tense jaw and muscle problems. Have you ever tried this form of treatment? If not here's a new product just for you!

      Since you have been through most of this mill, we choose to ask you to stretch chest and thoracic spineand strengthen the shoulders - this will take some of the pressure away from the neck and jaw. It can be helpful to visit a joint expert (chiropractor or manual therapist) if you are very stiff at the top of the neck. This joint is in fact directly related to the jaw and its function. Otherwise, a daily trip on rough terrain is also recommended.

      Regards.

        I have been using LDN daily for almost three years. And it has helped me endlessly. A lot of the pain has been reduced, and I have regained my energy. The jaw pain came long before the fibromyalgia, so the scholars dispute whether all pain in the body comes from the jaw problem, or not. 😉
        I have gone to a chiropractor regularly, and there has also been some help in that. But it is so beyond expensive in the long run. But I will try to stretch myself and see if it helps. Thank you so much for the good advice, and well it was good to hear that you scholars have heard about LDN 😉

      Such symptoms you describe are almost EXACTLY the same as I have .. I have ME and that's exactly how I have it. Have you taken any blood tests, mr, ct? I also have fatigue in the body, lack of concentration and memory loss. (ME is a diagnosis they can make after all other diseases are ruled out first)

      When it comes to your jaw (I have had jaw problems for 10 years. Had 3 surgeries) then I also had problems with the sinuses, the feeling that it was going to this out of joints etc etc). Have you had your jaw checked by an oral surgeon, for example? I went for 4 years with inflammation in my jaw (due to ME) which they did not find out until it was 'too late' and my jaw joint was broken.

        Hi Ida Christine 🙂
        It's just nice that you commented 🙂
        I have taken lots of blood samples, and tests on yours and mine - have simply lost control of what I have tested and not tested: / so I feel very upset
        and I do not really know what to answer your question: /

        Regarding the jaw, I have only mentioned it to the dentist, and then got a bite splint.
        But I do not use it when it hurts, and I am reluctant to call the dentist to let me know (also struggling with depression and social anxiety).
        But maybe I just need to bite into the sour apple and call the dentist tomorrow ?! 🙂

        SVAR
        • Ida Christine says:

          Yes, I know that feeling of losing control of what you have taken and not taken! Maybe go to the doctor, find out what tests you have taken and possibly take some more tests that can provide answers to your ailments. There are so many samples you can take so it may be the first step in the right direction? 😀

          Do you feel that you are getting better from bite splints? I have it myself as my left jaw is "lower" than the right and my bite is a little crooked. Good thing you have a bite splint as that is the first thing they 'try' out. So I advise you to bite into the sour apple and call the dentist to get an examination of the jaw and / or possibly be referred to an oral surgeon. I understand your fear of calling etc .. Previously I struggled with «phone anxiety» .. Could have seizures by just thinking that I have to call a place .. But I jumped in it several times and it just got better and better. I'm pretty sure you can handle it! <3 We all humans have the 'inner strength' that can make us do what we want / must .. Just know that I fully understand how you feel.

          Do you have that clicking sound in your jaw when you touch it? How high can you yawn? Using two fingers, can you get two fingers on top of each other in your mouth without it hurting?

            Yes it clicks a lot, it is uncomfortable and hurts a lot. Can not perform the exercise that you mention without it hurting 🙁

            Tried me on the bite splint last night, after not using it since I got it, because it was painful and uncomfortable. But tonight I thought it was good to wear. Felt the jaw was allowed to relax a bit.

          • Ida Christine says:

            Hehe. No problem, Monica! Can go fast in the turns for me too! 🙂

            My whole "jaw story" started with clicking in the jaw .. When I was at my worst, I could not even brush my teeth. It hurt so much. Do you notice your bite? Are your teeth "straight" when you bite again, or is it as if it is a little crooked? If you understand what I mean! On me, my bite was completely wrong. Only my two back teeth on the left side were in the right bite, while the other teeth were completely wrong! Good to hear that you have a bite splint you can use. It can hurt a little at first, but usually it gets better and it is very good for the muscles that you use a bite splint, feel free to continue with it when you can.

            I almost get a little "anxious" when I read how you feel because I know it can hurt sooo much to have problems with the jaw! Ingen Nobody cares so I strongly recommend that you go to your GP or dentist and be referred to an orthodontist. If you want, I can come up with some alternatives to maxillofacial surgeons / oral surgeons you can seek out / be referred to - it also depends on where in the country you live!

    And living with pain no one finds out what is for something…

    Hi, I am a young lady of 30 years who has lived many years with chronic pain. Samples have been taken in all directions, but no one finds out anything, I am left to myself, because the doctors do not believe me!
    I hesitate to call when it hurts so much that I can not walk, because I get the feeling that they think I am hypochondriac!

    That, I am not.

    I torment myself through hard days and push myself too much, it often ends up that I stay in bed for several days, just the thought of going to the store is completely cruel, so I get a lot of taxis!
    At worst, I can stand in bed on all 4 and howl, because I do not know where to go, medication does not work and gets minimal pain relief .. Why is there no one who can listen to me?
    When it's bad too, it's heavy and holding a fork, that and actually having to stand and do the dishes is just a thought, I have to call my mum and ask her to help me, but she also struggles with pain.
    I have fibromyalgia, but in recent years only the pain and fatigue have gotten worse and worse, I push myself all the time and still no one listens to me ..
    Many say, it goes over .. NO, it does not go over, it will never go over ..

    It hurts to sit, lie down, stand and walk .. What should I do then? How should I convey to the whole world that one should be seen and heard?

    I participate in research for chronic pain, but it does not help how it is for me today. I can not get a job and I can not finish school, because I do not know how to get energy.
    I sleep badly, and when I first sleep and wake up, I'm just as exhausted as when I went to bed, at worst I can sleep for 15 hours, but then I'll be completely knocked out, I just do not work.
    It feels like I have been hit at times, that I am completely paralyzed and what do the doctors do?

    Not a shit, they're just sitting there looking at you like you're stupid, waiting for your class to end. Had I been able to take cortisone in my whole body, I would have almost had a smile.

    What does it take for someone to see me, my ailments, my pains, my everyday life where I can often sit and cry because I do not get anything, because I feel I am not good enough for anything, when someone asks me for help and I have to say no because I'm in so much pain.

    I can not train because it makes me completely dead again, many say that it should be a miracle cure, but it is not like that for everyone. I have had PT, yes my condition improved, but my pain did not go away…?

    I am sometimes so angry that I am in so much pain, and it goes beyond those I love, but it is because I do not feel seen or understood, I can not be a mom either.
    When I have to find a sleeping position, I have to build up a lot of pillows in bed, between my legs, under my back, on my side, under my arms so I could almost have a pillow room… Chronic pain and fatigue is not something you joke about, and the doctors do that to a joke, there is far too little knowledge for this.

    One if there are a few more serious things, they also can not bear to get me thoroughly checked, one if it gets worse and I can finally never go?

    I'm so desperate.

      Hi Carmen Veronica,

      Many doctors and specialists find it difficult to relate to fibromyalgia and ME as these disorders can cause so many different symptoms - and thus be difficult to say anything concrete about.

      To say something concrete: Have you tried LDN (Low-dose naltrexone) treatment? It is claimed that LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) can increase endorphin levels and thus provide relief for a number of chronic disorders. Among other things, fibromyalgia, ME / CFS and chronic fatigue syndrome. You can read more about it here (in Danish).

      How does LDN work?
      - Naltrexone is an antagonist that binds to the opioid receptors in the cells. Theoretically, LDN temporarily blocks the brain's endorphin uptake. Endorphins are the body's own painkiller and are produced by the brain itself. This can cause the brain to compensate by increasing its own endorphin production. The result is increased endorphin levels that can reduce pain and provide an increased sense of well-being. Increased production of endorphins can thus help with pain, spasms, fatigue, relapse and other symptoms, but the mechanism of action and final results remain and are seen.

      Could this be something for you, Carmen Veronica?

      Since this is a site where other people can write and read other comments so "must" I take it in Bokmål .. Hihi.

      I want you to know that I fully understand how you feel and what you are going through.
      From what we have previously talked about, I have recommended you and have you examined for ME as we have very similar symptoms and you have some symptoms that may be similar to ME as I have. If your GP does not 'want' to examine you or thinks that you have already been examined, you can ask to be referred to physical medicine and rehabilitation at the hospital, where they can examine you and come to a decision. You can also ask your GP to take more blood samples from you as a start on a possible examination for ME. Then many blood samples should be taken, such as diabetes, HIV / AIDS, metabolism, vitamins and minerals and other possible diseases that can cause the same symptoms as with ME You can, for example, look up a list called the "Canada criteria" that most people follow when deciding on a diagnosis. You can also be referred to a psychologist as it is also part of the assessment of ME.

      Even if you have not been diagnosed with ME, you can, for example, try and take small steps for a slightly better everyday life. My tips are below the article you read! 😀 It can make it a little easier ..

    Hi.

    This seems to be an awesome web portal and facebook page with personal service. Sounds completely unique.
    Thought to come up with a question.

    I have been chronically ill for 26 years. Is 46 years old now, and has a genetic connective tissue disease, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, and it comes with a huge number of health problems. Someone I have under control, e.g. heart ailments that I have medicated, migraines that are under control, painkillers for joints and muscles. There is something wrong with every organ in the body. And I have been to most hospital wards around with the different parts of the body, as they collapse. Something has been proven, but no help is offered for it. For example. detected POTS, postural orthostatic tacycardia syndrome. Has been referred from UNN to Rikshospitalet who examined me, and also my son who is now 19, also EDS and POTS. But Riksen says that there is no treatment for it, and moreover it is UNN's task to follow me up since I belong to Helse Nord. Ergo no help. I was referred to the sync department at Østfold hospital which has a national function and told my general practitioner that he should only refer me there for follow-up, treatment, by POTS. Got refused to get there. My son with POTS has no follow-up for that. And after an EDS examination by a specialist in London, he was recommended to see a specialist there for autonomic dysfunction, with a reputable specialist. There we could both get help. I applied for health north to cover treatment for him abroad. As I said, he has no offer of help here. But health north refused, because we have a full offer of treatment of POTS in Norway.

    Yes, that's how it can go. So we have no doctor, doctors, hospital, who will cut in our case. Too rarely disease, and we are very sick. and has been partially bedridden for many years. I rarely called the phone for advice and he had nothing to contribute. Had never heard of POTS, and he did not find out that there was anyone in Norway who could help. Exactly the same as I found out.

    Do you have any good advice? Treatment advice for that I have found out myself, via websites, and through affiliation to American POTS groups, so thus I know a lot about treatment, but feel like "Anna in the Wilderness", who is left in all loneliness with serious illness, left to die.

    Also has leakage of cerebrospinal fluid out of the nose. It presses in the head, increased pain in the back of the head, behind the eyes and behind the nose, and it flows more and more behind the nose. This is dangerous and can lead to inflammation of the brain. But my doctor has leave, and no help. I have previously had surgery for a brain tumor and have a residual tumor. So it MAY be due to the operation in 2012 that has made it a fragility that causes a leak in the connective tissue in the brain over time, so that it now flows out of the nose every day.

    I also have gastroparesis, with constant cramps in the stomach wall, and it hurts a lot. My intestines do not work due to EDS, and due to spina bifida occult, and other malformations in the back, and I also possibly have a chiari malformation, a kind of hernia in the neck.

    I have great pain all over my body, I have ME, a lot of fatigue and pain, since about the year 2000. I feel that I am fading away, and both sons have EDS and need follow-up and I can barely cook for myself. Youngest man with EDS, POTS also has ME, and has recovered from a few years as partially bedridden, totally home-bound, not at school, nothing, missed four years of schooling, but is now on his feet most days, but has sleep needs that are extremely. Can sleep 17 hours a day for periods… almost all the time really. But can then have some nice hours when he has recovered. I have no idea soon what I am doing.

    I am followed up by a pain clinic in Oslo, and I have an appointment next week. But there I only get help to keep the pain in check. The body is by and large about to collapse, and it is scary when both the brain, nervous system, joints, muscles, stomach and intestines do not work..the heart is struggling… full of gallstones… bothered by blistering, which I do not know whether it is due to future MS, (which often comes in the wake of EDS), or whether it is activation of the pituitary adenoma, which may have something to do with the urinary system, or whether it is due to the spina bifida, which has done before the intestines are "paralyzed", and which may now have made the urinary system "out of order".

    I will soon not be able to do any more investigations. Treatments. Traveling to hospital. Here and there. And nothing works. I just want to lie in my bed. But can not lie there with a leak in the brain, and with insane stomach pain, etc.… Do you have tips for gastroparesis treatment in Norway.? Know that Haukeland is responsible for it in Norway. And UNN follows me up in relation to my dead colon .. but I must have fallen out of the system… I need a coordinator…

    Has had surgery for several tumors, removed uterus, both ovaries due to tumors, has hematoma in the back, has four small tumors in the thyroid gland now… was born with a connective tissue tumor on the knee which was operated on when I was 5 months old, now has a residual tumor in pituitary gland, and has two fatty tumors at the collarbones. Finds it difficult when the body has so many defects.

      Oi, oi, Rønnaug! This did NOT sound good. We understand that this complicates everyday life considerably. unsure emoticon It is as you say an extremely rare disease you are affected by - that even most Norwegian specialists have far too little expertise in.

      Regarding treatment:
      - Gastroparesis treatment is also performed at the gastromedical outpatient clinic at Ullevål, if it may be a topic for you? Or will this be difficult since you belong to Helse Nord?

      - We otherwise know that what works is to push and say. It is tragic that it must be so, but you are actually forgotten if you do not ask "where will my report be?" or "what kind of treatment should I get and when should I get it?" - especially when it is a topic that they find difficult to relate to.

      - How does all this affect your activity level? Can you walk a little and keep moving, or is it simply too much pain for that?

    I have psoriatic arthritis and struggle a lot with the upper cervical vertebrae.
    This has been going on for several years. Countless X-rays, ul, physio have been attempted. No one finds out what is wrong. I struggle a lot with headaches because of this.
    Even I think these joints have stiffened and it is getting worse all the time.
    I'm so swollen that it looks like I'm jerking my neck.
    I also think stiffness and tension lead to poor circulation to the brain and that worries me a lot.
    Can you help me,

      Hi Cici,

      First and foremost, we would recommend that you are active and train within your capacity - feel free to try some of the exercises we have listed on this page. You also mention that both X-rays and diagnostic ultrasounds have been taken, but without findings. Has an MRI scan been performed?

      Stiffness in the upper part of the neck and lower part of the neck can provide a basis for what is called cervicogenic headaches. If it is the joint pain that is the main problem, then we recommend that you try a holistic chiropractor or manual therapist who will focus on both the joints in the neck and the muscles that attach there.

      Can you describe your headache? Is it as a pressure in the back of the head, sometimes against the temple and even as a pressure on the eye at times?

      Regards.

    Has inflammation of the Achilles tendon. Had it before and helped somewhat with pressure wave treatment. Had heel spurs sometimes and then pressure wave treatment helped well. Do not know if it may have any connection. Uses sneakers for overpronation.

    Been to an orthopedist to hear if it could help with surgery. Is a huge cool at the back of the heel, but there was no help to get apart from exercises that I have used several times. Now it seems that it has "settled down". Nothing helps. Had it soon for 2 years now. Had 5 pressure wave treatments last year, stretching and training calf muscles. Tried Naproxen cure, but still just as painful.

    Hurt to go for walks, but take a Voltarol that helps for a while. Lameness when I walk which again causes incorrect loading on the knee, hip and back. Stupid because I am very fond of walking in the woods and fields.

    By the way, I have a lot of pain in muscles and joints, especially in the morning and when I have been sitting calmly for a long time.

    Any tips on what more I can do?

      Hi Margrethe,

      Tendonitis in Achilles and other dysfunctions in the foot and ankle usually have a connection. Among other things, it has been seen that Haglund's deformity (bone ball on the heel) and heel spurs have a higher chance of occurring if the person has misalignments in the ankle and foot (such as overpronation or flat foot) - this is due to increased load because the feet do not dampen shock loads. really should. This can also lead to a very tight fascia on the underside of the sole of the foot in front of the heel, this is called plantar fasciitis, and is usually considered the cause of a heel spur. The plantar fascia pulls on the bone attachment until the body finds itself forced to stabilize the area by depositing calcium there, which becomes the characteristic heel spur we can see on the X-ray.

      The huge ball on your heel is also called Haglund's deformity and is directly linked to a higher incidence of tendonitis in Achilles (!) You can read more about it in our article on Haglund's deformity - here you will also find specific advice and measures.

      Uff, sounds like you've ended up in a vicious circle (!) Pressure wave therapy will be helpful - but it's unfortunately expensive.

      Have you been referred for public sole adaptation (NOT privately) by a doctor, chiropractor or manual therapist? With a public referral, you can cover large parts of so-called special soles or footbeds - something that may sound like you need. This will allow you to move more and be more active.

      We otherwise recommend that you try some of the different exercises we have on our website (see link via our FB page if you need it) and maybe medical yoga could be good for you too?

      Do you use any regular measures / exercises against your foot ailments, by the way?

    Hi and thanks for the great offer! I am 47 years old and disabled due to pain in my arms and shoulders. Lazy at night especially in the arms and sleeps miserably for that reason. Have had several accidents with back / neck (collision and fall) and have a neck that does not "work" when I bend my head back. Then there is a little too little muscle there, and the head is easy to "fall" down instead of being controlled. This is when the chiropractor does this examination. Have tried sling training without much result.

    I have previously been super active with most of training / sports, but today I can only walk. Everything I do with movement with my arms makes me stiffen and get very sore the next day. And then I laze a lot more at night if I have been active with my arms the day before.

    An MRI of the neck was taken without any findings. Has previously had surgery for prolapse between discs 2 and 3 in the lower back. Then I had radiation to the right leg and lost urination function. Tendency to drop foot after surgery, but it's ok now. Has been bothered with impigment shoulders, first right, then left.

    Have tried chiropractor, physio, manual therapist, acupuncture, exercise and nothing helps and no one finds out my ailments. The only thing that can give me some improvement is a chiropractor, but it is limited what it helps. Do some yoga at home and stretch a lot on my chest / shoulders, arms and back daily, but still I can do almost nothing until the night and the next day is ruined.

    • Thomas v / vondt.net says:

      Hi Turte,

      It sounds like you have some ailments after whiplash / neck sling accidents. Such accidents can cause a lot of "invisible" damage to tendons, muscle attachments and fascia - the pain is not always present immediately, but can appear anywhere from next week to several years after the accident itself.

      The test performed by the chiropractor is called Jull's test - this is a test that checks the strength of the deep neck flexors (DNF neck muscles), these can be trained again with specific neck exercises - have you tried any of these? If not, it is highly recommended for neck sprains. Sling training will be able to help you with shoulders and sore chest, but I would probably initially recommend that you use a light knitting program as a supplement daily to activate all the muscles in the shoulder and shoulder blade region - these will then hopefully work for your arms - most likely then there is dysfunction in the lower part of the neck and over the shoulder blade that gives you a lot of the pain towards the shoulders as well.

      It is good to hear that you can get some improvement from the chiropractor, but unfortunately it is the case that due to lack of reimbursement, there will be a high deductible, especially if you are disabled. But we recommend that you go to a chiropractor when you need it. It is otherwise great that you stretch and are as active as you can - this prevents deterioration.

      Do you use any other self-measures or the like - such as e.g. foam roller? Have you been tested to see if you have low levels of vitamin D, vitamin B6 or anything else on blood tests?

        Hi and thank you so much for the reply! I will ask the chiropractor for a light knitting program for whiplash injury, I have not tried that before. I do two exercises to activate the upper, inner part of the back, but can probably certainly do more that are directly aimed at whiplash.

        Yes, it is expensive at the chiropractor, unfortunately. Had only the health service understood what a super job they do….

        I do not have a foam roller, but I have made a roll of a tube (covered with cloth) on which I roll and stretch the upper back, as well as stretch each "joint" in the spine for better mobility.

    SVAR
    • vondt.net says:

      Hi Anna,

      Cracks in the neck, shoulders and back may indicate a dysfunction in nearby muscles and / or joints. Often it is a nearby joint that becomes hypermobile and thus cavitates ("breaks") with movement in response to lack of movement in a nearby joint and tight muscles. It may be okay to take the small warning seriously before it becomes a major problem later. A holistic chiropractor or manual therapist (one who treats both muscles and joints - not just joints) will be able to help you with such a functional assessment and say what you should do next. We recommend training of deep neck muscles and rotator cuff plus stretching of the neck and thoracic spine.

          There are other alternatives, but they then have a higher deductible - such as, for example, a holistic chiropractor who treats both muscles and joints. It may also be possible that needle treatment may be a good treatment method for you. We must keep in mind that ankylosing spondylitis (formerly known as ankylosing spondylitis) is a progressive diagnosis. It is therefore important that you really put your soul into the training and do what you can to stop the development.

    Hello.

    I have been in pain since Oct.15, started in stabbing pains wrist / hand and shoulder. Good effect of paracetamol and ibux, but gradually the effect diminished. Started with Tramadol in December, with good effect, but in January the effect of it also decreased. In addition, the pain changed character. Got excruciating pain throughout the arm (from January). The doctor referred to MRI of the wrist, which showed degenerative changes around the thumb, and significant edema around the fingers and thumb, and thumb root. Was also at the Physical Medicine doctor who found nothing, only referred to positive MRI for rheumatic disorder.

    Due to significant pain, the doctor wanted to try prednisolone treatment, and at the same time referred to a rheumatology outpatient clinic. Prednisolone cure had super effect, and for about a week I had no hint of pain once. As prednisolone decreased, the pain gradually increased.

    Got an appointment at the rheumatology outpatient clinic 4-5 days after completing the prednisolone treatment, and an ultrasound check with her showed no inflammation. (Assumes that prednisolone took effect) She therefore wondered if there was a pinched nerve, or nerve inflammation somewhere. The doctor referred to the neurological outpatient clinic and they checked with "current" in nerves or whatever it was. The neurologist examined both arms, and said that the signals were within the normal range in both arms, but somewhat weaker in the acute arm.
    He wondered if it was something rheumatic since the pain is mostly in the joints (shoulder, wrist, fingers, knuckles). Feels like a throwing ball in the system.

    All blood tests have so far been negative (rheumatic).

    From the FMR doctor - Something rheumatic
    From the Rheumatologist - Something neurological
    From the Neurologist - Something rheumatic

    In the meantime - Been on sick leave for mostly 4-5 months now, gr. at times very severe pain.

    What could it be???

    • Alexander v / Vondt.net says:

      Hi Sonush,

      How did the pain start? Did they come after trauma, falls or the like? Or did they arise gradually? Painkillers act a bit like masking tape (it does not fix the problem, but hides it) and their effect will be reduced over time, as liver and enzymes become more effective at breaking them down.

      Do you also have pain in the transition between neck and thoracic spine / out towards the shoulder? Bursting and stabbing pain in the arm may indicate that you have a prolapse or disc disease in the neck. The doctor should refer to the MRI of the cervical spine to see if there is an irritation against a nerve root in this area. The electrical conduction test was also positive on the arm in question, so it is clear that there is something pressing against the nerve. We want you to go to the GP and request an MRI of the neck to check for prolapse / disc disease there. This is, after all, the "gold standard" examination for such ailments.

      We suggest that your pain is due to cervical prolapse with pressure on the nerve root C6 or C7 - and that the health system you have been thrown around in has forgotten to investigate where the cause is and has instead focused on the areas where the symptoms are.

        Have taken an MRI of the neck in apr. Does not have prolapse. MRI of the wrist and hand taken in February shows degenerative changes (osteoarthritis similar).

        I have had a neck prolapse twice before, and between C6 and C7. These pains are strong but different. Call for prolapse sep-14

        The pain started in October was only at the wrist and hand and shoulder area (joint). Then they were stinging right there. Could not carry anything in that hand, because then it did like stabbing in the wrist. the area around the wrist became slightly swollen and bluish discolored.

        Radiation from the shoulder to the fingertips came in January. Then it started to get more explosive in the whole arm. Then I started using oxynorm, since paracetamol, ibux, tramadol no longer worked. MRI wrist in feb

        Prednisolone use in February, rheumatic outpatient clinic in March. So nothing despite positive MRI. Prednisolone with good effect on pain. Miracle Medicine

        The pain changed character again. I started to get pain all over my body. Skin sensitive.

        Ordered MRI cervical spine, no new prolapse, but old scars after surgery. Hour with the neurologist, checked with electrical charges, normal answers, but weaker signals. Something that he thought was caused by the arm in question is slightly swollen. Otherwise everything is ok. Neurological examination - negative, spurlings test - negative.

        New MRI, of shoulder this time, taken last week, I do not yet know the answer to.

        Personally, I hold a button on rheumatic problem. Because: prednisolone works very well (indicates that the pain is due to inflammation in my eyes), I had an hour 3-4 days after prednisolone use, the inflammation that may have been there was gone on examination. And not to forget positive MRI answers.
        Two or three days ago, I hid my wrist in the drawer knob in the kitchen. Within seconds I was in pain and swollen and red. Have hidden many things in my life, without having developed such a cool in seconds. Indicates to me that there is an inflammation going on just below.

      Hi Merethe,

      There can be several causes for the pain you describe, but most often it is a mixture of problems in muscles, nerves and joints that gives the overall pain picture. We recommend that you get an examination from a chiropractor who is skilled in both muscles and joints - it may also be that you are referred for an MRI of the lower back to examine whether there is pressure on any nerve roots in the area.

      It is also the case that impaired function in the pelvic joint / lumbar spine with associated muscle tension in the hip and glutes can provide a basis for what is called false sciatica. This is a condition where dysfunctional muscles and joints 'irritate' the sciatic nerve that passes through the seat area - which results in leg pain and various neurological symptoms, often a feeling that it is burning or tightening in the area. We recommend that in addition to seeking out a skilled chiropractor (we can give it a recommendation if necessary) try these measures and that you also put a higher focus on stretching your buttocks.

    Hey
    I was with a chiropractor a couple of days ago and was diagnosed with sciatica in both legs + injury in the left hamstring. I have also had tendonitis in both arms for almost two years, and will start with laser treatment for this and my legs in a few weeks. I have previously been quite active and trained regularly bodyweight strength training and yoga, but now I have been inactive for 3-4 weeks due to the injuries and this feels bad both physically and mentally. I was told by the chiropractor not to do forward bends (stretch the thigh muscles behind) or squats, deadlifts and such exercises. He said I could go for walks (although this can hurt), bike and do light strength training. I then wonder: What exercises (light strength training) can I do with sciatica and injured hoarding, can I train the lower body at all? I've tried to figure out what I can do, but I can find nothing on the internet. I could train my upper body, but I have tendinitis in my arms and can not take in much because of this. I have read online that if you are not to lose strength / mobility / length in the hoarding in case of injury, then it is important to do special exercises fairly quickly after the acute phase has passed (Nordic hoarding for example). I'm still in pain, and it's been about a month since I injured my hamstring - and as I said, I'll start laser treatment in a couple of weeks. Should I just leave it until I start treatment?

    Thanks in advance 🙂

    SVAR
    • Nicole v / vondt.net says:

      Hi Marie,

      The reason why the chiropractor asked you to avoid strenuous forward bending stretching exercise is that it gives a violent intra-abdominal pressure against the intervertebral discs (which can be harmful in the long run, this is one of the reasons why so-called military sit-ups are completely out of modern training programs) - this is naturally very unfavorable when you have an irritation against the sciatic nerve. However, alternative ways of stretching the hamstring without too much flexion in the back should still be performed - depending on the degree of damage.

      You can do exercises on a therapy ball or these exercises here (in Danish) - they are developed mtp those who have sciatica / sciatica. We also recommend that you try these measures.

      So yes, you can exercise, but you should avoid too much flexion and avoid exercises that give too high abdominal pressure.

      Why do you have to wait so long before starting laser treatment? There is a high chance that the hoarding will heal on its own during these weeks - laser should be used as soon as possible after injury for best effect.

      • Marie says:

        Looks like I'm going to get a training ball like this. Is back flexion (back, yoga) something I have to avoid with sciatica in mind? I must at least avoid squats, but can I with my injuries do e.g. these exercises for butt, or does it take too much on the hoarding ?:
        http://www.popsugar.com/fitness/Butt-Exercises-Exercise-Ball-24763788

        Alternative hoarding stretching without too much flexion in the back - can there be something like below here? I'm really very flexible, and can normally get my legs quite far down towards my face, but now the leg stops when it's straight up, and if I take it further than this, I get pain:

        I am afraid of gaining a shorter muscle and losing softness as well as strength. I have avoided stretching and training my legs completely because I do not want to aggravate the injuries / irritate the muscle (have read that the hoarding can be further torn), but if the exercises above are ok to perform, should they be performed completely painlessly? Although it has been a while since the hoarding injury occurred, I often have pain without having triggered it beforehand. Would you recommend the Nordic hoarding exercise to strengthen it and avoid strength loss?

        The laser therapist was not present when I was there, and it is difficult and takes a long time to get to and from the treatment site collectively plus I study and actually live in another part of the country- all these factors meant that the first opportunity for treatment is early in July. It's sad to wait so long, even though it is incredibly important for me to get better and be able to participate normally in everyday life.

          Hi again, Marie,

          I'm working on an article for you with specific exercises that will benefit you right now. It should be published within 2-3 days. Back bending, but without pain, can be performed for the back. The most important thing is that you move forward calmly in terms of progression and development. The worst thing you can do is stop completely - the muscles need activity and movement to be able to heal themselves. Also reminds that the body needs extra vitamin C for muscle repair.

          It is true that one should not feel too much pain with exercise, and it is therefore important to start with some exercise exercises that strengthen the muscles involved gradually, but which do not lead to overload injuries. If you send us a PM on Facebook then we can find a recommended therapist / therapist for you.

    Hello. My doctor said yesterday that I got crystal sick, it came very acutely and I am a little better today, but have a sore / stiff neck. I have had two mucositis in my shoulder in less than a year. While I had mucositis for the first time, migraine attacks began. And this time I got the crystal disease. Is there any connection between mucositis, migraines and crystal melanoma? What could be the cause? Is there anything I can do so that I do not have to live with pain and sometimes great pain, and that the ailments come back? Regards Elisa.

    • vondt.net says:

      Hey,

      Those with migraines have a higher incidence of crystal melanoma according to research. We recommend that you read our article on crystal disease and reads you up on the mechanics behind the diagnosis. We have also published articles that show good advice and measures against dizziness. Feel free to try them too.

      We otherwise recommend that you consult a chiropractor or manual therapist for active treatment of the crystal disease - as this only requires 1-2 treatments normally for complete recovery - clinically proven.

      Good luck; Elisa.

    Hey
    I struggle with pain on the inner part of my left collarbone.

    The pain is not there continuously. They appear in certain positions and movements. The pain is worst after I have slept for a while. I guess it's because I'm lying tense with my shoulders raised up, for a long time. It becomes the wrong position for the collarbone and causes pain. I get up and relax my shoulders. Then it hurts. Throughout the day, the pain subsides.

    I also experience reduced mobility. Push-ups and lifting with the left arm offer pain in the collarbone, as well as in the shoulder blade area. I tried a new variant of push-up a couple of months ago. I performed regular push-ups with my arms shoulder-width apart, but kept my elbow close to my body. After a few weeks, the pain in the collarbone began. I guess this is the reason why I am in pain now, but how serious it is and where the pain is (the muscle, in the joint itself) I want an answer to.

    In addition, the collarbone has moved after the pain began. My right collarbone feels and seems completely normal. Compared to my right, the left collarbone is apparently higher up. It stands more vertically than horizontally as my right collarbone does. Is this serious? Can it be long lasting?

    What can be the cause of pain in the inner part of the collarbone towards the chest? I experience a pressure soreness around this area. When I press on the inner part of the collarbone, I feel a kind of pain. It is sore and tender.

    What do I need to do to get rid of this pain? I have been going with the discomfort for almost two months. I hope I have not waited too long for it to be long lasting.

    SVAR
    • vondt.net says:

      Hey,

      Some say the inner part of the collarbone when they mean out towards the shoulder and others then mean towards the chest plate - based on the pain you mention it sounds like you have an AC joint restriction / irritation, as well as reduced rotator cuff stability in relation to it the training you do. So we are talking muscle imbalance and instability. Your focus should be on training the rotator cuff stability + serratus anterior, stretching the pectoralis muscles, as well as getting help from a chiropractor or manual therapist to loosen joint restrictions in between the shoulder blades and the transition to the neck.

      You will find good exercises for your shoulder blades here (in Danish).

      Hi Inez,

      Sorry for the late reply - misunderstanding as to who should reply. You should have this investigated via your GP - here it may be a question of taking an MRI to evaluate the CSF fluid and whether there have been pressure changes in the spinal cord after the epidural that was placed there.

      It will probably get better with time, as the spinal fluid is constantly replaced, but it may probably persist for some time to come.

      Our recommendations are that you contact your GP. We wish you good recovery and good luck!

  41. Eva says:

    Hey,

    Over the last month, I have gradually gotten worse under the toe ball on both feet. The pain was initially only present in the morning and after sitting still for a while. Then it took a few steps before I was able to walk normally. But now I notice it most of the time. The pain is in the toe balls, which is not compatible with plantar fasciitis (based on what I have read). But since the pain is worst in the morning, it does not quite fit in with metatarsalgia either. In the morning I also feel it along the underside of the foot, while during the day it only sits in the toe balls. Never pain in the heels.

    I am flatfooted, and have therefore had insoles for several years. Got added another type just before the summer due to a lot of hip problems. Since I am at home on leave (4 month old baby), the strain on my legs has increased greatly from a sedentary office job. But I have always been active, and am far from overweight, so I think giving birth should tolerate this. Could it be wrong with the new soles that do this? And can it be plantar fasciitis even if I do not have pain in the heels?

    Very grateful for good advice, as it is terribly frustrating not to be able to go as many wheelbarrows as I want.

    SVAR
    • Thomas v / vondt.net says:

      Hi Eva,

      Where in the toe balls is the pain? More on the inside or outside of the foot? Does it hurt to stand on your toes or heels? Considering that the pain has gotten worse after the new soles, it may be beneficial to try for a while without these. Soles are often not a good long-term solution for sore feet, as the feet often become dependent on the support. It's a bit the same as with a low back corset or neck collar - it does not work in the long run due to muscle loss and dysfunction.

      It is allowed to have several diagnoses. It can be both metatarsalgia and plantar fasciitis. Due to some uncharacteristic, persistent pain, we recommend that you get a referral to MRI to be able to estimate the best possible procedure for you further.

    Hi, MRI has detected tendonitis in the right wrist and ulnaris (more specific diagnosis: moderate tendinopathy similar to extensor carpi with some surrounding edema changes, normal extensor, flexor later and bones, intact triangular cartilage). Reason: prolonged strain on the wrist through writing, housework, lifting and other things that can strain the wrist. Been to a physiotherapist who said I could tape my wrist with non-elastic tape for half a month in the hope that the severe pain "burns" away. Is this enough / possible at all? What other treatment can I ask the physiotherapist to give me besides doing stretching and strength exercises myself? Cool with ice water as well.

    SVAR
    • Thomas v / vondt.net says:

      Hi Negin,

      In our personal opinion, such a tap would lead to muscle loss / impassivity in the area, which in the long run can make the problem even worse - we do not think it would be particularly effective in the short term either. We would recommend pressure wave therapy (the gold standard treatment) aimed at tendon damage (tendinosis), possibly instrumental Graston treatment, anti-inflammatory laser treatment, needle treatment and / or TENS / current treatment.

      Any of these that have been tried?

      Hi Sissel,

      We would recommend deep neck flexor exercises (see exercises HERE), as well as treatment by a public health-authorized therapist (ie physiotherapist, chiropractor or manual therapist). Many chiropractors use so-called traction bench treatment, which is considered an effective form of treatment for spinal stenosis in the lower back. Great otherwise that you do medical yoga, this is something we really recommend as a supplementary self-measure. Whiplash and osteoarthritis can also be useful in spinal manipulation or mobilization by a chiropractor or manual therapist.

      It is important that you go to a 'modern chiropractor' - ie one who focuses on the treatment of both muscles and joints.

  45. Eva says:

    Thank you for your answer! The pain is quite centered under the toe ball, difficult to say whether it is mostly towards the inside or outside of the foot. It does not hurt to stand on your toes or on your heels. It also does not hurt when I try to press under the foot to try to find a sore spot. In the morning I notice it very well when I pull toe no. 3 (big toe = no. 1) towards the calf. Then it feels very stiff and stretches very far along the underside of the foot.
    Have taken it very easy and not used the soles for a week, and that I have done all the exercises I have found online. I think it has gotten a little better, as it is not completely stiff and impossible to walk after a short period of sitting still. But still not quite the progression I had hoped for, as it still prevents me very much from going for walks.

      Hi again, Eva,

      We would recommend an MRI in your case - preferably with a clinical examination by a chiropractor or manual therapist in advance; which can then refer you for an imaging examination. Have you had any shock pain or the like? When you mention the 3rd toe, we immediately think of Morton's neuroma. What exercises do you think work well for you? It can give us a little more information about what is wrong with your foot.

        A little unsure of what you mean by shock pain, but it's more of a burning sensation under the toes. And it sticks under the whole sole of my foot when I take the first steps in the morning.
        I have stretched my foot, stepped on my toe, picked up a towel with my toes and written the alphabet with my feet.
        Thought for myself that it was probably not Morton's neuroma, as I thought it was a bit unusual to get on both feet at the same time?

      Hi Jan Helge,

      It sounds like an Achilles' heel injury. We recommend that you get a diagnostic ultrasound examination from a therapist with public health authorization (chiropractor, physiotherapist, manual therapist). Achilles injury can refer to pain from the back of the knee all the way down to the attachment in the heel - there may also have been an inflammatory reaction due to the strain from the trip / new shoes. You can ice down, rest the area (keep your leg high) and use kinesio tape to support the Achilles tendon - in case of certain injuries, muscle work, pressure wave treatment or needle treatment at clinics may be appropriate.

      Is it worst when you get up and step on your foot? Is there redness / swelling over the back of the heel?

In that case, your GP should have referred you there. Do you otherwise know if you have chronic fatigue syndrome / ME diagnosis? Also do not understand that you were 'kicked out' by the physiotherapist - it seems irresponsible and indefensible in the condition you are in.

We recommend that you contact the Facebook group "ME as a late injury after the swine flu vaccine" and tell them about your symptoms and signs. They will probably be able to give you some good and relevant information.

          You can go to a public physiotherapist for as long as you need it (1 month is far too short a time and you barely have time to do anything at that time) - it is the physiotherapist himself who in that case has made the decision to 'send you out of the queue'. It certainly sounds like you still need physiotherapy treatment to work - so yes, there are many who go to the physiotherapist dozens (some up to 60 times) a year. If there is a need for it.

    Yes, I have been referred, but do not know when the class will be yet. I have gradually become quite sure that new soles are the cause of the problem. Is flatfoot, and has had insoles since junior high school.

    I got these made at Oslo Orthopedic Technology by stepping on a foam box. A few months ago I had new soles made by my physiotherapist. So-called «Supersole». These raised my arch significantly more, and straightened my knees more (from falling slightly towards each other). The new soles are also much harder than the old ones, and I think that is the cause of the toe ball pain. Have gone back to only using the old soles for a couple of weeks now, and my feet feel a little better.

    At the same time, I have rested more and done all the exercises I have come across online, so it is difficult to say for sure what is the cause of the improvement. The only thing that is a bit sour is that I felt the new soles made my hip problems a little better, so it feels a bit like I have to choose between 2 evils by choosing the new or old soles… .. The old soles do not seem to support enough, while the new ones compensate too much and are made in far too hard material.

      Hi Eva,

      You've probably tried these exercises also? A bit of a dilemma you have there. We recommend an intermediate solution - namely that you vary between the two soles; this can also mean that your feet become a little more adapted / used to the new soles as well. Which naturally would be ideal for hips / knees as well.

      What do you think about it?

      SVAR

        Yes, I have done all those exercises. Feeling the inflammation under the foot has improved, as it is not so stiff and painful to take the first steps in the morning anymore. But the toe balls get sore quickly after just a little walking / standing. I have only used the old, softer soles in recent weeks, and I notice that as soon as I put my feet in the new soles, they put extra pressure on the footballs where I am in pain. So do not quite know what to do. Is so afraid the feet will become a chronic problem, in the same way as the hips have been for so many years….

    Hi! I have pain in my left leg after I fell. I slipped with my right foot and fell on my leg. (I think) I could not get up because it hurt a lot in the leg. When I try to stand on my toes it hurts and it feels like "jelly". I wonder what might have happened and how it could be improved. Thanks.

    SVAR
    • Alexander v / fondt.net says:

      Hi Sayo,

      Considering that there was a fall (trauma) and subsequent pain, the probability increases that it is a soft tissue injury or muscle injury. How long has the pain persisted? When did this happen? Can you stand on your toes now? It can (though less likely) also involve a partial tear of a muscle in the leg.

      The rice principle is recommended in the acute period of such ailments:

      R - Rest
      I - Ice
      C - Compression
      E- Elevation

      Have you otherwise noticed if it has swollen or become bruised in the area?

      SVAR
      • Sayo says:

        It happened this morning at eight o'clock today. I'm still in pain, and still struggling to stand on my toes. There has been no swelling and no bruising in the area.

        SVAR
        • Alexander v / vondt.net says:

          Ok, we recommend that you look at the morning and use the RICE principle. If there is no improvement, we recommend that you contact a clinician to diagnose the problem. Get well.

    Hi I have for a week had to struggle with numbness in my middle finger, have not done anything special to annoy the other one to knit. Today it turned out to be painful just touching my finger. Seems like there's a nerve sitting there annoying. Had greatly appreciated feedback on what you think I can do with it or what it might be.

    SVAR
    • Thomas v / Vondt.net says:

      Hi Julie,

      There are several possible causes of pain in the middle finger, but one of the most common (especially considering that you have done a lot of knitting) is overload of the finger extensor muscles and the wrist extensor muscles, then more specifically the muscles that also attach to the outside of the elbow. Do you feel that you are very tight and pressure sore in the forearm, perhaps especially towards the outside of the elbow? Other possible causes are nerve irritation in the neck towards the nerve root called C7 or irritation towards the carpal tunnel.

    Hey
    In September 2016, I fell from a height of 2 meters. Got rib fractures and collarbone fractures. This is good now. But now I have a cold shoulder / frozen shoulder, this is terribly painful. What can help against this?

    SVAR
    • Thomas v / vondt.net says:

      Hi Lena,

      Frozen shoulder / adhesive capsulitis / 'cold shoulder' often occurs after a trauma. The condition can persist for as long as 1-2 years if you do not receive treatment / adapted training. We recommend that you look at the following exercises here (in Danish). Pressure wave therapy has also proven clinical efficacy in approximately 4-5 treatments (Vahdatpour et al, 2014 - published in the International Journal of Preventive Medicine).

      We therefore recommend that you contact a publicly authorized clinician (physiotherapist, chiropractor or manual therapist) with a pressure wave treatment device. Here you will get a thorough implementation in diagnosis, training and treatment that will be adapted to where you are at the stage of your frozen shoulder problems.

    Hello. Wondering if you have any tips on what you can do to make everyday life a little easier? I got the first sciatica symptoms in June 2014, then I got prolapse, which was operated on in June 2016, then a new prolapse, which was operated on in October 2016.

    Has always had pain in the entire left leg. As it did not go well, I took a new mr in January 2017 and then there had been another big prolapse again. And it's like the pain that is my life during the day, it never gives me peace. Have tried many different painkillers, but nothing that has helped. Trying to go for a walk with poles (can not walk without) almost every day in the woods. And train a little in the sling and otherwise some exercises that the physiotherapist has given me. I also have a big problem with not being able to straighten my back. Is completely stiff in the gluteal muscles. Was pretty good after the last surgery, but it has only gotten worse and worse. Also has a lot of pain under the leg, the doctor thought it was a plantar fasciitis, if there is no connection with the sciatic nerve? This was a lot, but it's now the way it is .. Very nice to read their pages. Useful information.

      Hi Eirik,

      First of all, we would recommend custom, gentle exercises (they are adapted for rheumatologists, so they are suitable for everyone) for you. Otherwise, due to your chronic pain and problems, we will advise you on meditation, yoga and mindfulness. Many people with chronic pain can get good help from these self-treatment methods.

      We also recommend that you get some fresh breath from a new physiotherapist, chiropractor or manual therapist - they can see you in a clinical perspective and perhaps come up with very good tips and advice tailored just for you.

    SVAR
    • Nicolay v / Vondt.net says:

      Hi Heidi,

      It is impossible for us to guess what your pain in the shoulder blade is due to based on so little information. Pain in the shoulder blade can be due to dysfunction in muscles or joints, but sometimes organs and the like can also refer to pain in the shoulder and shoulder blade.

      If you are unsure, I would call a chiropractor or doctor - describe the symptoms and pain - and then let them decide if you should see them, or if this is something that sounds like it will go away in a few days.

      Feel free to tell us more specifically (the more, the better) about your symptoms / pain. Then perhaps we can point more towards a specific diagnosis.

    Hi, after walking on tiles for over a week, I have had severe pain in my forefoot.

    I've had an X-ray and an MRI - it's neither a fatigue fracture nor Morton's neuroma. Some edema has been found in the forefoot, but after about 14 days of Naproxen treatment, the pain is unchanged. I have had this pain since New Year, as soon as 3 months.

      Have you been examined by a modern chiropractor (one without an X-ray machine in the clinic!) Or a manual therapist? These occupational groups can perform tests (including vibration tests) to check if it is likely that there is a stress fracture in your foot.

        • Nicolay v / vondt.net says:

          Why have you not been to conservative treatment if there were no pathological, degenerative or traumatic findings in the pictures? The pain can also be due to tight, dysfunctional muscles and joints in the foot (and lower leg) - in fact, this is the most common cause of such pain. Especially considering that you have had both an X-ray and an MRI, this is the most likely. It may otherwise be important to strengthen the hip, ankle and calf muscles, as these are connected to the foot function - especially shock absorption and more correct load.

    Hi ? girl of 31 years.

    I have struggled with ailments for 7 years and have been told that there was tendonitis pain after pelvic dislocation etc up to several times. After 2 years I went to a specialist who only gave me cortisone, and the diagnoses hypothyroidism (2010) and endometriosis (2010).

    It helped for a few months and then it was on again. About 2 years ago I limped due to fluid and pain in my knee, was reported sick and told to rest, but it did not help. Countless times on MRI and X-ray without an answer from a GP.

    Then I got an appointment with martina Hansen (March 2017) and was met and believed. Took MRI and got 3 more diagnoses! Morton's syndrome, fibromyalgia, hla-b27 positive. I received only one letter from my doctor without any explanation, only the diagnoses. Have been referred for surgery for morton's syndrome this autumn and the rest I have googled myself. And read me up on this page! So grateful.

    What should I do now? I suffer every day with pain in my right hand, feet, knees, hips, neck and back. It's unbearable to go to work now and then, but I do it for it. And I get paid for it in the evening and at night.

    I want to exercise, but with the pain now I partly get to yoga, even though I can not take the exercises fully due to mobility. I can go for walks, but with some pain under my foot. I struggle with uphills and downhills.

    I am not a girl who sits still or has a quiet life, but has lost the quality of life due to this.

    I have been given a new appointment with a specialist on July 3, 2017 to take new samples, but think it is so long to wait with these pains.

      Hi Jannicke,

      Thank you for your inquiry and your thorough explanation.

      It was a lot at once and I really understand that this must be experienced as incredibly frustrating.

      1) chronic myofascial pain: It seems that you have extensive myofascial pain. Have you sought any kind of treatment? In the past, it has, among other things has been clinically proven that acupuncture can relieve fibromyalgia. We recommend that you combine pain relief treatment with gradual exercise - this treatment can make it easier to get you through the first demanding months of exercise.

      2) Positive feedback: We really appreciate that you find our website informative. Remember that you can also request topics we are missing on our page that you want more information about.

      3) Training and exercises: Yoga, pilates, mindfulness and meditation are all good measures. Trips in rough terrain (preferably forests and fields) are also excellent training, and it works wonders for a 'tired mind'. We definitely think you should exercise - a little every day - but remember that with as many ailments as you have, there is a chance that this will temporarily (for several months) provoke more pain before it gets better. Do not give up - build up slowly but surely again.

      4) Specialist: What kind of specialist have you had an appointment with?

      Fine if you number the answers as shown above - this for the most clear dialogue possible. We wish you a very good recovery and look forward to helping you further.

      Hi Kari Gro,

      There can be several things. But are you saying that it is painless and asymptomatic the rest of the day? So that it only hurts when you step on your leg in the morning?

      The pain you experience down the leg is most likely due to irritation of the sciatic nerve - but the groin pain itself can be due to a number of diagnoses, including iliopsoas (hip flexion) myalgia or hip problems (may cause pain towards the groin).

      It can also be due to tight nerve conditions in the back. Would recommend an examination by a clinician with public authorization (chiropractor or manual therapist), as these also have the right to refer if there is a suspicion of spinal stenosis or the like in the back.

        I do not know how it was set when this was done when I was a 12-13 year old. 1-2 years ago I took the X-ray of my back since I have some pain and stiffness there. But was told that the wear and tear was as expected from my age (56 years), nothing more was done than that. But I then have pain in several joints such as knees, elbows, neck and in recent times hat has appeared about small bullets at the finger joints and. Sometimes I ache all over my body, often when the weather changes. But also otherwise. Sometimes I can get frostbite, without being sick. regular paracetamol does not help with the pain, but has nothing else to take. This is difficult as I work as a nurse, am sometimes exhausted and tired for a few days.

        But how can gout affect the lungs?

    Hello.
    Am a 27 year old girl who feels I have lost a lot of quality of life and am starting to get bored. Do not know where to do anymore, they around me do not feel how I feel and do not feel the doctor takes me seriously. Want my normal life back.
    Struggling with dizziness, feeling it is difficult to breathe, feeling that something is stuck in the throat (something like how it feels in the throat when crying), headache, feeling weak (feeling like I should collapse), sometimes it feels out as I get blood pressure drop and get ear in head. Also struggling a lot with pain in the hip / back / neck.
    This has been going on for 1 year soon.

    Psych believes this is anxiety and depression. I do not completely agree with this. Yes, I get scared when the body behaves like this. So I more agree that anxiety is something that has come from my condition.

    Is taken mr of head and neck, this the doctor said that looked fine.

    The heart is checked twice in 2 hours each. Everything OK. The heart skipped a beat once in a while, but this was common in younger people.

    Blood tests are also fine, I do not know what has been checked. But there have been a few rounds of sampling.

    Was hospitalized once. then I was very dizzy and was fainting, was checked in the emergency room and had low blood sugar (I think it was). This was checked several times during the weekend I was in. But it was only in the emergency room that they got a "bad" answer to the test. They thought there must be a psychological reason why one of the tests became "ugly". Was discharged with the message that there is a mental and muscular reason why I feel this way.

    I also had a mammogram recently, as I have a lot of pain there as well and have felt bullets and seen changes with my nipples. A cyst was found. I was told this at the hospital, but the doctor did not mention the cyst. They say it's no problem.

    Was taken X-ray of the lower back / pelvis just now and was told that I have wear in the hip and between the hip and lower back. Am a little too heavy, so was told that the only thing I could do was lose weight.
    Have been trying to lose weight for 5 years now, with no results. Now I go on painkillers with pain anyway. Trying to walk / exercise but only gets more pain and dizziness. So is very difficult and painful.

    Can also say I was born with hip dysplasia (lay with pillow until I was 9 months) and have a compression fracture in L1.

    -What I wonder is if I can have such symptoms due to the wear and tear?
    -What can I do to get better?

    Hi, I got a job injury about 12 months ago. Worn a lot with pain between the shoulder blades, muscles and spine. Does not get better. Trained a lot of strength before. In the last year, it has become less and less to easier to easier exercises. Many exercises I have also had to cut out completely. Hope you have come across something similar to know what this could be?

      Hi Mats,

      The list of possible diagnoses is long with the limited information - but the most common is a combination of dysfunction in muscle and joint function. Comprehensive treatment of muscles and joints in combination with specific training should be the solution for you.

    Hey

    Is a girl in her 20s who has been diagnosed with postviral fatigue syndrome (G.93.3)
    Has had back / neck pain since the teens.

    I was examined by the back and neck clinic, where I was weak in the neck / neck muscles, abdominal muscles, greater pain in the back than normal. Most things were out of the ordinary, except that I am very soft, but not hypermobile in the body. As I said, I have some pain and what bothers me in everyday life is pain from the head, and down the entire right side, all the way down to the foot.
    When I have been to a psychomotor physiotherapist she could look at the body where the tense muscles were, and which muscles were / are too weak and do not engage where they should, so that other muscles work extra, and this leads to pain and imbalance which I understand that.
    And then it was actually the left side that was most unstable, even though I experienced that it is in the right side that hurts. (then I did an exercise with a physiotherapist in a sling with elastic around the hips and legs, at first had many elastics, but eventually managed to only use the sling to stabilize the muscles) I strongly suspect that these are the same issues that I described above.
    But how do I go to the current doctor / physiotherapist to get the right treatment / find the reasons that do this? What can I do myself? it often hurts so much with massage balls that I get dizzy. My body does not tolerate too much exercise, otherwise I would of course have trained and walked much more in rough terrain as I did before I got sick.
    I feel the pain increases every day, and try to use massage balls to ease it, but I think it is so extensive now that I myself can not solve it.

    Do you have any advice?

  82. Matilda says:

    I am a girl of 16 years and have received a knee injury we think is a jumper's knee / jumper knee. I'm pretty sure if it is, but since I get pain from pressure just below the kneecaps, there are not many alternative injuries. I also get pain when the leg is bent and pressure is applied and it is pressed. Does exercising make it worse? It only hurts after exercise, but never during exercise except with flexibility. I train a lot of leg strength, which is recommended for jumpers knee, but notice no effect. Any advice?

    I had surgery on my right toe due to a hammer toe at the rheumatism hospital in Haugesund in the autumn of 2014 and now in the last year things have gotten worse. At times, it feels like there are millions of needles sticking in the knuckle on the toe - feeling and that the knuckle has gotten bigger. Is this possibly something that can be done with, or do I have to live with that pain?

  84. Eva says:

    Hey,

    I have struggled with jumpers' knees for over half a year now, with no improvement despite countless exercises, pressure wave therapy and no strenuous activities. Finally got an MRI, and here is the result:

    Intact menisci, cruciate ligaments and lateral ligaments. Slight thickening of the patellar tendon proximal, slightly elevated signal. The finding fits with tendinosis at the patellar tendon attachment. Mild adjacent edema changes in soaking. It gives the femorotibial joint is the articular cartilage intact. There is an osteochondral defect in the patella upwards laterally, probably a so-called dorsal defect, a developmental anomaly. Here there are fissures in the articular cartilage and defect in the subchondral plate, adjacent bone marrow edema. Whether this has clinical significance is uncertain.

    R: Tendinosis of the patellar tendon attached to the lower pole of the patella. Ostechondral defect upward laterally on patella as described above.

    I think it is strange that the tendinosis does not get any better despite following all the recommendations, and therefore think the osteochondral defect may be significant. That it is the one that creates an irritation that means that the tendonitis never gets better. Does this make sense? Based on the description, are the tendonitis and the osteochondral defect located in adjacent areas?

    After various googling, I also do not quite understand whether such an osteochondral defect can get better by itself. Can you write something about that?

    Thank you very much!
    Regards

    Intense burning under the entire sole of the foot. To the extent that a bucket of ice cubes had been in place. No difference in load or not, but "fatigue" in addition in case of prolonged load. Got proven gout many years ago, but theory knee this is completely compatible. Also has severe pain in the wrist / hand and in the ankles, if it can have any connection, but has so far related exactly that to gout. What can the burn be? Have had it for almost 11/2 years.

    Hello. For 5 months I have been struggling with chronic tension headaches. For 1,5 years I have struggled with severe tinnitus. It seems as if there are muscle tensions that have settled on the left side and now I go with a higher left shoulder, it settled properly when I massaged it quite hard just over the New Year. It is as if I hear the tinnitus that there is tension in the shoulder and around the head. I feel a murmur in the muscles and if I lift with weights, the muscles shake in the shoulder. I am afraid to treat the shoulder since when I massaged it last trigger points behind the ear, over the ear and forehead became very active, got anxiety and slept poorly, but a little better now. But I have to get this in place, unable to work until the shoulder stops being active as it is now. I stretch and do other exercises for the neck for half an hour every day. I go to a psychomotor physiotherapist, so I am now learning to deal with stress, but miss the muscular follow-up and am afraid of spending a lot of money on treatment that does not work. How much can I do with an overactive shoulder muscle, will the tension subside over time or should one treat it? What kind of exercises are right and which are wrong, will not trigger this so that it does not work. Regards Nina

    Hello. I'm not sure where I can write to ask, but you can refer me if this is the wrong place. Read somewhere that antacids can cause kidney damage in the long run. I am put on Esomeprazole 40 mg, but chose 20 mg myself as it worked against its purpose with 40 mg. Is this a preparation you should be aware of in relation to late injuries? I have tried to stop, but it does not work, then I can not even stand water.

  90. City says:

    I have been diagnosed with scoliosis, but do not feel that this is being taken seriously or that I am being investigated well enough.
    For example, I have only taken X-rays of the upper vision and MRI of the lower back.

    When it was first detected in the upper back, they did not check the rest of the back and it was only after a lot of squeezing of me due to great pain in the lower back that I was sent for MRI and was also detected in the lower back. The doctor is not very helpful and says I can see a chiropractor.

    But I'm afraid I do not have a good enough overview and pictures of the whole back. And is afraid of doing something wrong. I do not know how many degrees or something I am. And I only get paracetamol for pain relief. The upper back is not always sore, only when I get mucositis inflammation due to my fibromyalgia, while the lower back is constantly sore no matter what I do. This goes beyond the night's sleep. And it's constantly cracking in there when I turn around and this is very painful.

    I have no follow-up of the back problems.

    I then wonder how I should proceed with this, to get a better overview of scoliosis.
    And what can I do to have a better life with the diagnosis, and not chronic pain.
    What can I ask the doctor to help me with?

    Have tried physiotherapy without success. As well as I go a lot of walks. tried yoga. Heat treatment.
    I think this is very hopeless. And I do not know my poor advice. Hope to get some help or info here.
    By the way, is chiropractic good for me with scoliosis? Will it help at all?

    Is tired of having constant pain, and poor sleep due to this. Is it normal to do nothing about it?
    They call it adult scoliosis. First found out about this 2 years ago. I'm turning 33 this year.

    Hello. My husband (73) runs, got groin strain (and has probably not paid enough attention afterwards), now he does a lot of rowing and thinks it's a good idea. But I'm not so sure… What is their advice?

    SVAR
    • Nicolay v / Does Not Find says:

      Hi Lise, when kicking off the rowing machine, you are loaded with hip flexors - and hip extenders, as well as abductors and adductors. As long as he performs the movements at a calm and controlled pace, it should not be too hard against his groin. Other recommended forms of exercise include specific exercise exercises (as shown on our youtube channel here (in Danish)), cycling and swimming.

      Rowing machine does not have to be negative for someone with groin strain, but you are also right that it can be easy to take in too much and thus overload yourself.
