A 24-year-old female asked:
injured knee for 2 months knee popping, thigh bone hurts also hip hurts tingling through entire leg and numbing in bottom of foot not insured?

Sounds: like you have internal "derangement"(= cartilage tear) in your knee joint and the instability is remedied by overusing muscles in your thigh!
You should have these symptoms evaluated and I see you are a US resident...why no insurance..apply for insurance via The Affordable Health Care Act ("Obamacare") depending upon your State you will be offered low cost or no cost insurance)
Hope this helps!

My skin partially peeled off the bottom of my feet how can I prevent pain while walking?

Multi-layer dressing: Use sterile dressing and antibiotic ointment over the exposed skin to prevent infection and promote healing. Use a second layer of dressing or gauze. In between the first and second layer apply a lubricant such as vaseline or petroleum jelly. Secure those layers with a roll gauze and tape. All of this goes under your sock and should prevent pain when walking.

A 36-year-old member asked:
Is there a stronger combination of medicines than lyrica (pregabalin) and naproxen for treating nerve pain in the feet?

Yes: Lyrica (pregabalin) is one type of "nerve pain" medicine. There are several different types of "nerve pain" medication. You would want to increase Lyrica (pregabalin) to the highest dose before you could say it isn't working. Naproxen is an an anti-inflammatory medication. Narcotics are the strongest medication with evidence for improving neuropathic pain.

A 33-year-old member asked:
Would a pinched sciatic nerve cause pain in wrists and numbness/tingling in hands or feet?

Dr. Ken Starnesanswered
General Practice 9 years experience
Feet maybe, hands no: The sciatic nerve runs from the gluteal region (your rear end) down the back of your leg, then branches to innervate the back of the thigh and leg as well as the outer part of the lower leg and then parts of the feet. An injury may cause those symptoms there, as well as problems with motion.
The major nerves that serve the hands are the radial, ulnar and median.

Went to doctor with sinus infection and got amoxicillin. Did not help in still have bad headache in bridge of nose and behind my eyes. Any advice?

Try again: Once doesn't always do it for sinusitis. May have a resistant organism and thus need a different antibiotic. May have problems with structure of nose and face and may need other treatment such as surgery. You may not even have a sinus infection? Get re-examined by pcp or by ent.
