Cervical osteochondrosis with cerebrovascular

Cerebrovascular accidents in osteochondrosis associated with the compression of the main arteries supplying the brain - the vertebral arteries. The symptoms that are characteristic of this disease, are combined in a vertebral artery syndrome or syndrome of the basilar artery (two vertebral arteries merge and form the basilar artery).

Vertebral artery often squeezed muscle spasm, at least - altered intervertebral disks. Spasm of the artery can occur reflexively and with the defeat of the disc. This leads to disruption of the blood supply to the brain.

The first and constant symptom in this case is a headache that starts in the neck and spreads to the entire head, ear and eye socket region. Headache with cervical osteochondrosis increases with any movement of the head and often are one-sided, why are called cervical migraines.

Headaches with cervical osteochondrosis accompanied by worsening of skin sensitivity - the slightest touch to the scalp (eg, brushing) causing pain. Turns head accompanied by a characteristic crunch felt by the patient.

Dizziness with cervical osteochondrosis second very common symptom. Vertigo with cervical osteochondrosis always combined with a headache, and sometimes they are joined by nausea and vomiting.

   and vision are closely related. Visual disturbances occur reducing its sharpness, blurred images. Double vision (diplopia) with cervical osteochondrosis also common. Sometimes it is also developing pharyngeal migraine - foreign body sensation in the throat that interferes with swallowing.

Weakness in the cervical osteochondrosis may appear when you turn the head at the same time can develop the following attacks:

  • patient falls, "threw himself", but did not lose consciousness, he rises over time;
  • the patient loses consciousness and falls, and a few minutes later comes to life arises, but at the same time feel a weakness.

   vertigo develops when picked up head (artery goes into the narrow portion of the opening), while cerebrovascular vertigo develops when tilting the head forward.


Vascular dystonia (VVD) and cervical osteochondrosis

If you can develop cervical osteochondrosis and vegetative disorders. This happens when squeezed autonomic nerve fibers that make up the spinal roots. For vegetative-vascular dystonia are characterized by pressure surges in the cervical osteochondrosis. Cervical osteochondrosis and pressure are interrelated, the pressure can drop quickly and just as quickly go up. Patients tend to be harder to endure such a state. In this regard, such a combination as osteochondrosis, cervical hypertension, may be dangerous.

Vascular dystonia can manifest itself in the form of sudden acute hunger, thirst, hot flashes or chills. Trembling (tremor) head with cervical osteochondrosis is also one of the manifestations of autonomic disorders. The temperature in the cervical osteochondrosis generally does not rise, but can rise local temperature in the place where the inflammation of tissues disadvantaged. Swelling with cervical osteochondrosis may be associated with inflammation (local edema) and violation of the outflow of venous blood (facial swelling).

Another manifestation of the IRR is cardiac syndrome - pain in the heart. Pain in the heart with cervical osteochondrosis may be permanent or paroxysmal aching acute.

Acute pain feels easily confused with heart pain in coronary heart disease (coronary artery disease - angina and myocardial infarction). The difference is in the duration of acute pain in relatively good condition of the patient, while the long-term pain in coronary artery disease - a sign of myocardial infarction, which is accompanied by severe general condition of the patient.

 manifestations of thoracic osteochondrosis

Visceral manifestations of thoracic osteochondrosis

Radicular syndrome is often accompanied by manifestations of the internal organs, that is, visceral symptoms. Defeat verhnegrudnyh roots often accompanied by pain in the pharynx and esophagus, sometimes a person complains of a feeling of a foreign body there. They may be constant, or in the form of attacks and amplified with pressure on the affected vertebrae.

With the defeat of the middle chest roots, pain and discomfort in the stomach. These symptoms are worse if the person lies on his back for a long time on a hard surface, as well as movements in the thoracic spine.

Squeezing the eighth and ninth roots may be accompanied by pain in the duodenum, which is reinforced by coughing and sneezing, prolonged sitting and turning the torso. Often the person with pain disturb sensory disturbances in the middle of the anterior abdominal wall.

Violation of the secretion and motility of the stomach - even some signs of thoracic osteochondrosis. Man worried heartburn, nausea, pain in the left upper quadrant, and sometimes vomit.

Motor and secretory disorders of duodenal ulcer manifested by pain in the back and in the pit of the stomach, belching and nausea. There is a feeling of heaviness in the right upper quadrant Heaviness in the right upper quadrant - require examination  Heaviness in the right upper quadrant - require examination
 Sometimes a person worried about a swelling in the upper abdomen and vomiting. In cases where impaired intestinal motility due to osteoarthritis, a man complains of diarrhea or constipation and bloating.

For degenerative disc disease of the thoracic characterized by visceral pain in the heart, which are accompanied by a burning sensation in the left side of the chest. Pain arising from the movement in the cervical-thoracic spine in the supine position or with prolonged sitting. Often these symptoms are disguised as angina. Abdominal pain can be mistaken for symptoms of serious damage to abdominal organs, cholecystitis, or nephrolithiasis.

Shortness of breath during breast osteochondrosis arises infrequently and usually it is associated with the appearance of pathology at the level of the cervical vertebrae and the occurrence of laryngospasm (spasm of the larynx). At the same time a person has seizures, during which hampered breath, breath becomes a whistling character. Cough with osteochondrosis of the thoracic as possible. It is important to establish that this symptom is associated only with the disease of the spine, but not with lung pathology.


What to do when breast osteochondrosis

In order to confirm the diagnosis of osteochondrosis of the thoracic spine, need to be examined by a neurologist. You must figure out how to start and develop the disease, what symptoms it manifested itself before the treatment to the doctor. Also, using the survey estimated the human condition at the time of visit.

X-rays, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging can detect abnormalities of the spine, which led to the appearance of signs of osteochondrosis. Using these methods, specify the diagnosis and identify hidden pathology.

Since under osteochondrosis can mask many other diseases, depending on the symptoms, some may require consultations of other specialists. You can not start the treatment of degenerative disc disease of the thoracic spine without conducting diagnostic studies.


How to cure osteochondrosis of the thoracic

   thoracic depends on the stage of the disease, the severity of pain and the presence of comorbidities. Conservative methods aimed at eliminating pain, disruption of the spinal roots and preventing or slowing the progression of degenerative changes in the structures of the spine. If conservative treatment of thoracic osteochondrosis ineffective, then surgical treatment. The volume of surgery depends on the level of destruction and the symptoms of the disease.

If the pain - the main symptoms of osteoarthritis Symptoms of osteoarthritis - pain and disturbance of sensitivity  Symptoms of osteoarthritis - pain and disturbance of sensitivity
   thoracic spine in its exacerbation, appointed NSAIDs. These include diclofenac, indomethacin, ibuprofen, naproxen, ketoprofen and other means. They all possess analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect. But these drugs are contraindicated in:

  • Ulcerative lesions of the gastrointestinal tract in the acute phase;
  • Expressed violations of the liver and kidneys;
  • Hypersensitivity to these drugs;
  • Violation of hematopoiesis.

After eliminating the pain you need to decide how to treat osteochondrosis of thoracic later. At this time appointed chondroprotectors - drugs that stimulate the recovery and slow the destruction of cartilage. Drug treatment of degenerative disc disease of the thoracic involves the use of tools such as Teraflex, Struktum, arthritis, Don. They are appointed in combination with other drugs long courses. The combination of drugs and therapies chosen doctor.

   thoracic, which stimulates the regeneration of cartilage tissue. The drug is still available as a gel for external use. Chondroxide anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. It is contraindicated in case of hypersensitivity to it and damage the skin at the site of funds.

Muscle relaxants - drugs that relieve muscle spasm, and as a result, reduced pain symptoms of the disease. Mydocalm - one. It is contraindicated in myasthenia gravis (increased abnormal fatigue of skeletal muscles).

Also conducted rehabilitation measures. These include:

  • Physical therapy (iontophoresis, ultrasound, magnetic therapy, diadynamic currents, darsonvalization);
  • Massage, traction (traction);
  • Acupuncture;
  • Hot tubs;
  • Physiotherapy;
  • Spa treatment.
