    Wakuu Nawaombeni kama kuna Mtu anajuwa Dawa ya kutibu (Uti) wa Mgongo
    (Spinal Stenosis) anisaidie jamani. Matatizo hayo yaliniwahi kunitokea Mwaka 2004 nikaenda Hospitali kufanyiwa Check ya XRay ya mwili mzima, Doctor akanipa dawa nikatumia nikapona. Lakini sasa yamenirudia tena nikikaa mahali pamoja kwenye kiti kwa muda mrefu huwa nasikia Maumivu yanayotoka kwenye kikalio changu cha mguu wa kushoto kwa ndani maumivu yanakuja mpaka miguuni kama mfano wa nyoka anavyotambaaa kwenye mwili wangu. Maradhi yangu yanaitwa kwa kiingereza (Spinal Stenosis)kwenye Kikalio changu kwa upande wa kushoto huwa ndio nasikia Maumivu yanakuja mpaka chini Doctor aliwahi kuniambia nina matatizo kwenye Kikalio changu cha mguu wa kushoto kuna kitu kinaitwa (Disk) kwa lugha ya Ki Doctor hiyo Diski ipo kwenye kikalio changu kwa mguu wa kushoto ndio inayoniletea Maumivu. Nawaombeni Ushauri wenu nitumie Dawa gani kumaliza Matatizo yangu Asanteni. angalia picha za chini huo Ugonjwa Umri wangu ni Miaka 46

    MziziMkavu,the best ni kwenda kumuona neurologist au neurosurgeon.Mimi kama daktari,nahitaji kupata chief complaint yako,history of present illness,past medical history(past diagnosis,history of trauma,history of surgery,history of blood transfusion etc),social history(habit,occupation,interpersonal relationship etc),family history(genetic/familial correlation).
    Mara nyingi siwezi ku consider medical terms anazozitumia mgonjwa,maana mgonjwa aweza sema kapata stroke kumbe anamaanisha syncope,in short siwezi ku rely on ur technical terms kwa sababu huwa zina miss lead in making diagnosis.Kwa mfano hapo uliposema dawa ya kutibu (uti) wa mgongo.....inachanganya kidogo.

    Kulingana na maelezo yako,yabidi umuone neurosurgeon,na kwa ninavyofahamu inabidi ufanye surgery ili ku ondoa hiyo spinal nerve compression ambayo imesababishwa na spinal canal stenosis.Pia physical therapy yaweza punguza symptoms

    Hizo picha ulizoweka zinaweza kukupa clue,maumivu unayohisi ni kutokana na nerve inayo innervate your lower limb imekuwa compressed,na inakuwa aggrevated unapokaa kitako kwa sababu your body's center of gravity ina concetrate kwenye uti wa mgono

    Mkuu Diana-DaboDiff wewe haswa umeyagunduwa Matatizo yangu nilikuwa natafuta jina lake haswa sasa umenipa hilo jina lake linaitwa kwa lugha ya kiingereza ni Sciatic Nerve Kwa Lugha ya Kiswahili inaitwa Mshipa wa Nyonga. Matatizo yanayoanza kwenye kikalio changu mpaka chini mguuni haswa kwa upande wa kushoto. Kwa wakati Mwengine unakuwa unabana kweli na kushindwa hata kutembea hayo ndio Maradhi yangu.

    Unaona sasa MziziMkavu maelezo na picha zako zinavyoweza ku miss lead diagnosis



    Sciatica


    Sciatica refers to pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling in the leg. It is caused by injury to or compression of the sciatic nerve. Sciatica is a symptom of another medical problem, not a medical condition on its own.

    Causes

    Sciatica occurs when there is pressure or damage to the sciatic nerve. This nerve starts in the spine and runs down the back of each leg. This nerve controls the muscles of the back of the knee and lower leg and provides sensation to the back of the thigh, part of the lower leg, and the sole of the foot.

    Common causes of sciatica include:

    Piriformis syndrome (a pain disorder involving the narrow piriformis muscle in the buttocks)
    Slipped disk
    Degenerative disk disease
    Spinal stenosis
    Pelvic injury or fracture
    Tumors

    Symptoms

    Sciatica pain can vary widely. It may feel like a mild tingling, dull ache, or a burning sensation. In some cases, the pain is severe enough to make a person unable to move.

    The pain most often occurs on one side. Some people have sharp pain in one part of the leg or hip and numbness in other parts. The sensations may also be felt on the back of the calf or on the sole of the foot. The affected leg may feel weak.

    The pain often starts slowly. Sciatica pain may get worse:

    After standing or sitting
    At night
    When sneezing, coughing, or laughing
    When bending backwards or walking more than a few yards, especially if caused by spinal stenosis

    Exams and Tests

    Sciatica might be revealed by a neuromuscular examination of the legs by a physician. There may be weakness of knee bending or foot movement, or difficulty bending the foot inward or down. Reflexes may be abnormal, with weak or absent ankle-jerk reflex. Pain down the leg can be reproduced by lifting the leg straight up off the examining table.

    Tests are guided by the suspected cause of the dysfunction, as suggested by the history, symptoms, and pattern of symptom development. They may include various blood tests, x-rays, MRIs, or other tests and procedures.

    Treatment

    Because sciatica is a symptom of another medical condition, the underlying cause should be identified and treated.

    In some cases, no treatment is required and recovery occurs on its own.

    Conservative treatment is best in many cases. Your doctor may recommend the following steps to calm your symptoms and reduce inflammation.

    Apply heat or ice to the painful area. Try ice for the first 48 - 72 hours, then use heat after that.
    Take over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB) or acetaminophen (Tylenol).
    While sleeping, try lying in a curled-up, fetal position with a pillow between your legs. If you usually sleep on your back, place a pillow or rolled towel under your knees to relieve pressure.
    If at-home measures do not help, your doctor may recommend injections to reduce inflammation around the nerve. Other medicines may be prescribed to help reduce the stabbing pains associated with sciatica.

    Physical therapy exercises may also be recommended. Additional treatments depend on the condition that is causing the sciatica.

    Nerve pain is very difficult to treat. If you have ongoing problems with pain, you may want to see a neurologist or a pain specialist to ensure that you have access to the widest range of treatment options.

    Sivai high heels Mkuu mimi kwanza ni Mwanamme Umri wangu ni Miaka 46 nilipatwa kama na Upepo Mbaya nilikuwa nimelala sitting room. Nikawa nimeacha Madirisha wazi nyumba yote kwa ajili ya joto basi Upepo mbaya wa alafajiri ukanipata kuamka nikawa najisikia maumivu kwenye mgongo,baada ya muda yakaenea mpaka chini. Kuanzia Kiuno mpaka chini najisikia kuumwa hayo ndio mwanzo wa maradhi yangu. Nakaenda kupiga XRAY huku niliko nje ya nchi Ughaibuni wakaniambia nina matatizo kwenye Disk yangu katika makalio yangu kwa upande wa kushoto nikatumia dawa nikapona. Ilikuwa mwaka 2004 sasa yamenirudia tena kama mwaka 2004 nikikaa mahali pamoja muda mrefu huwa nasikia maumivu, yanayotoka kwenye hiyo diski iliyopo kwenye makalio yangu ya upande wa kushoto wa kiuno yananiuma sana mpaka nitoke kwenye kiti nizunguke zunguke ndio yanapowa hayo maumivu yangu. nimejaribu kutumia Dawa za kutowa Maumivu kwa lugha ya kizungu inaitwa Pain killer jina lake ni (Fort APRANAX) lakini bado maumivu yanakwenda na kurudi. Ndio maana nikataka ushauri wenu Asanteni kwa ushauri wenu.

    The best way ni kumuona specialist
    Matatizo kwenye disk,huenda ikawa:Disk degeneration,disk herniation ambayo inapelekea spinal canal stenosis and hence nerve compression(if it's sciatic nerve then may lead to sciatica) etc.

    Kwangu binafsi,nashindwa ku lay out diagnostic guidelines and hence concrete advice apart frm just go to consult a specialist.
