Neuroforamen is actually a space or tunnel though which the nerve roots originating from the spinal cord exit and go out to supply different muscles with nerve signals and carry sensory signals from different areas to brain.
Neuroforamenal stenosis is a condition in which this tunnel gets narrowed. The reasons for this stenosis are either arthritis of the facet joints of the spine, disc protrusions,trauma, tumor or infections. Most common reason being degenerative changes in spine due to old age and arthritis.
Patients with neuroforaminal stenosis present with sharp shooting pain due to compression of the nerve root, they may also get weakness of the muscle supplied by that particular nerve root.
Treatment is initially steroid injection and pain killer if the patient does not respond to this conservative treatment then surgical decompression gives good result.
Don't know the earliest, but you should see a doctor if you suspect this. You can die from an ectopic pregnancy. Also, this may ruin your chances of ever being able to have another child. I just had an ectopic pregnancy in June and I was around 6 weeks when I started having a constant, stabbing pain in my lower right, below my stomach. When my doctor treated me (I had to take methtrexate) I was told their is no magic answer to you question. In some woman it may be really early in others it could be at 3 months. My suggestion is go see your doctor if you even have a slight feeling something is wrong. There are other reasons you can have pain besides ectopic: one being a cyst in your tube. But they only way to rule that out is by an ultra sound. Go see your doctor is the best answer I can give.
This product is not sold in the UK but a quick Internet search uncovered the work of Dr Deas and apparently it causes anemia. Eating anything that is not considered "Food" is caused by an iron deficiency. Get a blood test. Additional Informaton: Unexplained cravings for peculiar substances such as, cornstarch, laundry starch, chalk, or even chewing ice, can be signals indicating the deficiency mentioned above and also a zinc deficiency. You need to see your Dr. and also ask about testing for anemia, which is sometimes indicated by these urges. Also a link has been found between these symptoms and colon cancer, so don't just let your Dr. treat you for what they find, but ask them to investigate the root causes of your anemia and cravings. This doesn't mean that everyone with this type of urge has cancer, but you should make an appt. to see your Dr. and be open and honest with them concerning your cravings, to resolve the medical issue and get treatment.
No, you can't get a disease - you do however significantly increase your risk of TSS.
Toxic Shock Syndrome is caused when certain strains of bacteria are allowed to multiply and start to produce toxins which are absorbed into the bloodstream, if you lack immunity these toxins overwhelm your immune system leading to something similar to septic shock. Tampons allow massive bacterial growth and damage vaginal tissues which can allow bacterial toxins direct access to the bloodstream - without sufficient menstrual flow vaginal damage is increased so risk is higher.
Tampons are NOT sterilized, they are only sanitary.
It could be simple, like a muscle spasm or a little pleurisy, or it could be something far more serious. You'll need to talk to a doctor to find out for certain. If it is affected by breathing, it could easily be pleurisy. If you don't have any other symptoms it could very easily be a muscle spasm, but it has far too much potential for being a problem, so don't ignore it.
