Need to be seen: It appears to be hypersensitivity rashes. But things like folliculitis need to be ruled out. Need to be seen by a dermatologist.

A 25-year-old member asked:
After having low back surgery, is it normal to have unresolved nerve pain in feet and legs?

Yes: I assume you are talking of disc surgery, which the nerve involved.
We have to consider two things.
How chronic the painwas?
How much the nerve injury is?
It may take days?
It may have residual pain for long time?

What is severe headaches cold feet chills tremors then vomiting light headed sweating neck pain?

Can be a big problem: Severe headaches, accompanied by neck pain, could be a type of meningitis (serious infection around the spinal cord and/or brain), although the real flu can cause similar symptoms. Cold feet, chills, and tremors occur when fever is rising; sweating happens when fever is dropping. Light-headedness and vomiting make it all more worrisome. A trip to the doctor is needed to evaluate these symptoms.

Pain in legs & hips head aches and indigestion lack of energy all started since I quit drinking are these normal symtoms?

Specializes in General Practice
Temporarily: (obviously more information needed) how long ago did you quit drinking, and how much were you drinking? Overall stopping drinking is good for your health, but there are acute withdrawal symptoms, as your body adjusts. Think back how you felt any given morning after a drunk night. Not so good probably, symptoms would be relieved by alcohol's putting you back in semi-stupor. Break that cycle!

Could be..: If you have had previous surgery, follow up imaging and neurosurgical consultation are important steps to pursuing an accurate diagnosis.

A 23-year-old member asked:
I have just had back surgery to take pressure off my nerves 3 days ago. Is it normal to have muscle pain in your leg while it heals?

Yes: It can be normal to have some residual pain in the lower extremity after back surgery. You should notice less intensity in the pain and hopefully less numbness, tingling, weakness, etc. If you notice worsening pain, and changes in bowel/bladder function, worsening numbness/tingling, or other issues, please contact your surgeon.
