I have migraines that cause my face to go numb, both my legs to go weak and get pins and needles and burning sensations. I can have altered sensation in both my feet and legs at the same time, this usually only lasts for short periods of time but happens on and off with twitching in the numb areas. Sometimes this can make it difficult to walk. I can also get a tingling tongue. I also sometimes get stabbing eye pain. I never feel sick or light sensitive but I have stabbing like pains in my head, like an electrical bolt. I have had repeat brain MRI on a T3 machine which have been normal. I never usually get severe headache just more weird sensations in my head.
Can migraine cause both legs to go numb at the same time? Or both arms at the same time? I was told migraine is only one sided? I have had spinal MRI and this is normal too.
Thank you for any info. Cheers, Eleanor.
Although the headache and many of the other sy...
The results of this study challenge current thinking on follow-up treatment after microfracture. Microfracture is an arthroscopic operation for cartilage tears in the knee. The surgeon makes several holes in the layer of bone underneath the damaged cartilage. This brings blood to the injured cartilage and speeds up healing. Right now doctors are following a standard rehab program. The patient puts no weight on the leg and uses continuous passive motion (CPM). CPM is done with a device that slowly bends and straightens the knee over and over. The idea is to use CPM to put "dynamic" (moving) pressure but no weight through the joint to enhance healing. In this study two groups of patients were compared. Group one was treated with the standard rehab (non-weight bearing and CPM). CPM was done for at least six to eight hours each day for six weeks. Group two was allowed to walk on the leg and didn't use CPM. Patient results were followed for up to six years. The researchers report no differenc...
What do knee pain, loss of motion, and decreased muscle strength have in common? They're all symptoms of knee osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis (OA) is a condition of joint and bone damage. Knee OA is found in many people over age 65. Exercises to reduce pain and improve strength and motion seem to help with knee OA. Physical therapists are always looking for new and better exercises to use. Knee OA causes some of the same problems as knee ligament injuries. For example, patients may feel that the knee will "give way" or buckle during daily activities. They may also feel that the knee joint is "slipping." Physical therapists tried using an exercise program for ligament injury to help a patient with OA. A 73-year-old woman with mild knee OA in both legs agreed to try this program. The program worked on two things: balance and agility. Agility is the ability to move quickly and easily. This helps the knee handle sudden changes in direction and twisting movements. Balance helps keep the knee...
