Dizzy and shaky: This could be indicative of central neurological dysfunction, brain injury, or vestibular dysfunction. Do any of these apply to you? Has there been any head trauma or brain injury. Are there any other neurological signs or symptoms associated with this.?
A male asked:

Ankle sprain: Where are you are referring to is the attachment. For the anterior and posterior tibial or fibular ligament's. They are most commonly injured and sprains, additionally the peroneal tendon's run behind the fibula and are commonly inflamed and repetitive running activities. You would require an MRI to diagnose the problem and direct care such as bracing and steroid injections.
A 49-year-old female asked:

Hip pain: It will be helpful to know what you mean by hip pain? Some people pulling to the side of their thigh or buttock area which is more related to gluteal muscles, muscle sprain or lumbar disc herniation's and nerve root compression. If you're referring to your groin area, which is your actual hip joint then it may be arthritis or a labral tear

Thanks! Have cervical spondylosis &nocturnal severe spasms in legs, too. They put me on floor for 20-30 min at a time. I'm now realizing how flexeril made me so tired during day.
