No copper tube received.
TOTAL CK 124 U/L (1-125)
Troponin T <0.01 ug/L (0.00 - 0.03)
NOTE Change to Troponin T with Lower cut-off values
Troponin T values >0.03 ug/: in patients post-chest pain suggest the presence of myocardial injury. values >0.1 ug?L indicate significant myocardial injury.
TnT may not be raised until 4.-12 hours post chest pain.
Indication: bilateral lower limb symptoms. Pain, numbness, pins and needles Left calf pain.
Findings: there are mild diffuse disk bulges involving L2/3, L3/4 and L4/5. there is minimal encroachment on the thecal sac. At the L4-L5 intervertebral level on the left sidethere is a mild paracentral disk bulge ecroaching on the neural exit foramen on the left side. The exiting nerve root, however appears univolved. Incidental note is made of a high signal abnormality in the body of L2 which likely represents a haemangioma.
Conclusion: Left paracentral disk bulges at L4-L5 but no evidence of encroachment on the existing nerve root.
Questions all but the very above tests ordered by a consultant I dislike and distrust intensly. Why were there tests mistakes.
Dr. Tubridy found an ANA of 1/800 and raised Prolactin when he was called in around this time by my twin sister. The doc who asked for all the above tests bar the above was a gastro and the latter doctor a neuro.
What is the significance, can anyone deduce from the above?
Sorry to bore you.
there are PAGES of notes.
It also states that on this visit I refused to leave BUT fail to write down on the charts that my GP told me not to leave but does note that GP wants contact, which she never got!!!
