10 year old. Severe pain stretching from the thigh to calf without prior injury?

Unusual...: If it is truly severe without any history of trauma, it is worthwhile to have the child examined by a health care professional. Are there any other associated symptoms (swelling of the extremity, for example)? Swelling with this type of pain could mean a blot clot. A careful exam and history will help get to the bottom of what is going on. I hope the child feels better soon. ...Read more

Have suspected torn cartlidge in knee. episode of severe leg pain from thigh to foot. Is this expected for my condition?

Have suspected torn cartlidge in knee. episode of severe leg pain from thigh to foot.  Is this expected for my condition?

Usually smaller area: These conditions are very painful and the pain radiates out from the injury. In general the pain is only around the knee, cannot say in your particular case. Obviously if this occurred in the context of falling on the whole area which is now bruised, then that's the cause. A lumbar disk can also involve the area. Often scoliosis, other degenerative condition, occupation hits multiple places. ...Read more

I've had DVT in the past (18 months ago, treated, off thinners for about 9 months.) i'm experiencing some swelling in the leg and an intermittent tingling sensation upper thigh -- should I go to er?

Needs Evaluation: The blood clots from DVT are rarely completely dissolved after treatment and recurrences are not uncommon. Damage to the valves in the leg veins may also predispose to leg swelling. At any rate, if your are experiencing leg swelling you should be evaluated. Mild symptoms don't usually require a trip to the er. Call your primary care doc. ...Read more

This : This sounds like a serious issue that should be evaluated in-person by a qualified physician! if your weakness was sudden, there are numerous possible causes, most importantly associated with your nervous system. It does not sound like you had a trauma, so muscle-or-tendon ruptures are unlikely. The most common reason for this problem is an acute disc herniation in the lumbar spine, that can occur without back pain or even any kind of bending/lifting injury. This causes nerve compression that gives patients typically radiating leg pain, numbness and weakness. The muscles that are associated with each lumbar spine level need to be tested individually during a good physical examination, and the distribution of your numbness should be traced. That can often lead to a pretty good diagnosis, even before imaging studies are done. You will probably need a set of standing lumbar x-rays and then possibly an MRI of your back to determine the real cause of the problem. There could be an inflammatory problem with onevof your nerves in the buttock or leg, although that is not as common as nerve root compression in the lower spine. Very rarely can individual nerve roots be affected with a disease inside of the cauda equina, the lower part of your nervous system inside of the lumbar spine, so that is unlikely. Even more rare would be a spinal cord problem higher up in the spine, or some kind of stroke inside of your brain, so that would not be the first thing your doctor will be looking for. Make sure you tell your physician as clear as you can when the problem started, where you feel weak, and where the numbness is (front, side, back of the lower leg?). Associated fever, chills, recent weight loss and problems with urination are important to convey to your doctor also. Do not wait too long to go see someone. Hopefully you can be treated with a course of anti-inflammatory medicines (similar to ibuprofen) and maybe physical therapy to see if things improve. Even with weakness, there is no good evidence for early surgery, as most patients -even if they were weak for a long time from nerve-root compression- eventually regain their strength just fine. Depending on the evaluation and possible MRI scan, do not let yourself get scared into surgery right away; try non-operative treatments first. If things do not improve, and there is indeed a significant amount of nerve compression in the lumbar spine, surgery might be the answer, and it is often very successful for this. Good luck! ...Read more
