Lumbar X-ray Results?
I did a chest X-ray and the results were minimal thoracic scoliosis. TB 1 year long. R n r nI have almost 2 months of pain in the back of the chest to the front of the chest to the left of everything. It’s been a normal EKG, normal blood sugar, good blood pressure. I went to the neurologist and they said it wasn’t a HNP (pinched nerve) then a X-ray and the result was “thoracic minimal scoliosis dextro”. What does it mean???
TB is an infection that can infect various organs such as the lungs, lymph nodes, bones, and the brain. TB spondylitis is an infection of the spine, and TB spondylitis can cause movement disorders and changes in posture.
Scoliosis is a condition where the spine curves to one side. Thoracic dextro scoliosis is a condition in which the thoracic vertebra is slightly tilted to the right. This can be affected by the TB infection you are experiencing. Not all scoliosis requires therapy. Minimal scoliosis is sometimes asymptomatic and does not require special therapy.
Therefore, if you do have scoliosis, then check with an internal medicine specialist so that the doctor can check your condition firsthand.
