Sometimes there are areas where you still can have fairly severe pain during labor even with an epidural. Oxygen is sometimes used if you or baby is getting tired. The best thing to do is ask your Ob what is happening. Best wishes! ...Read more

I have severe pateler chondramalas and torn meniscus repeatedly & 4 surgeries  had a skiing accident and now i cannot raise my leg without severe pain?

Knee pain: How soon after the accident? Your history would suggest bad chondromalacia and loss of the meniscus can lead to early arthritis. If your pain is significant then i would recommend evaluation with x-rays as an acute fracture from the fall cannot be ruled out. ...Read more

What is the cause of my heavy legs, severe pain in my legs and weakness. My X-ray result, it says I have lumbar s1 vertebrae. Thank you?
