Herpes is painful: Genital herpes causes a lot of pain and blistering in the genital area. Your symptoms do not sound like herpes but could be the result of some other type of infection. See your doctor of symptoms persist.

What might cause pain in the thigh that seems to move around in buttocks and groin if the doctor suggested an ultrasound and venogram?

Hip Joint and spine: The pain in the anatomical region you have mentioned could be from the hip joint, spine, and soft tissue infection. Venous blood clots can result in pain and swelling in the calf and thigh but not in the buttocks. A good history and physical exam will usually identify the system involved.

Ice: Try to limit the pain killers. Usually an absolute max is 8/day. It depends on the drug and the strength. Cold packs for 15-20 minutes at a time can help. There are many different meds to try if the 1 you are using is not effective.

Need full evaluation: A person with hearing problems since age 5 years will have had evaluations by her pediatrician or primary care doctor, been referred to an audiologist for complete testing, and been seen by an ENT doctor to find out if there is any correctable disorder causing the hearing problems. If these things have not been done, she should write down her story and take it to her primary care doctor to start.

Rest: It sounds more like cervical radiculopathy, or nerve symptoms originating from your neck. Many of these improve on their own. Some of these also cause shoulder and rotator cuff problems. Visit your friendly neighborhood orthopod or sports medicine doc so we can give you an individualized answer after an examination.

Last night I had major tingling all over the palm or my right hand. I do computer based work all day and ipad at night. Is this carpal..?

Hand numbness: There is a good chance that what you are describing is carpal tunnel syndrome. If this continues wear a wrist splint at night. If this does not solve the numbness then you need to discuss this with your doctor.
