Swelling back leg isolated below gastrocnemius to ankle. MRI, arteriovenous US normal.Tightness both sides of leg near ankle w/ dorsiflex. Tendonitis?
Dad is experiencing leg pain, leg swelling and leg tenderness in right upper leg near main artery, ultrasound is clear but has severe pain can't walk?
Keep looking: Was the ultrasound done to look for a blood clot, or something else. There are multiple conditions that could be causing it, and there are more sensitive tests as well. It can be from the back, from the hip, or still be vascular related. I would say clearly that something is not right and to keep looking. An MRI of both the hip and the lumbar spine may be a consideration. ...Read more
Hard to say: Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine and is not usually used to describe any other part of the body. So to say scoliosis of the upper limbs is not a common way to describe any deformity of the arms. All that being said, it may have been someone's attempt to describe a curvature of the arms, or you may not have understood what was said. Thank you for the question. ...Read more
Phlebitis Arm: It sounds as if you have developed superficial thrombophlebitis of a vein in your arm. You should see a doctor and get it evaluated, as you could develop bacterial phlebitis which can be serious. Non bacterial phlebitis can often be treated with warm compresses and anti-inflammatories, but you also need to make sure that the phelbitis doesn't extend and cause a deeper more serious clot, i.e. Dvt. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Please repost: and explain what you mean by a "butt" scan. Medically there's no such thing as a "butt" scan. Abandon your unfortunate tendency to use vague colloquial words like "butt" and and state EXACTLY what the scan was called. What you need is a scan of your lumbosacral spine, not your "butt." ...Read more
Unilateral lower leg swelling. Wear compression socks and elevate feet for saphenous reflux, leg remains same size. Might swelling not be vascular?
No: you have venous stasis. Any other swelling can be like abscess formation, muscle herniation. Fracture, and if you have the above trust me you will know it right away. My advice if you have good arterial flow get 30-40mmHg compression sock and use them. Cut salt from diet and elevate feet when at rest ...Read more
Increasing numbness limbs constant pain and spasms in lower & upper back & down left leg, MRI lumbar showed bulge disk L4 l5, rotatory scoliosis causes
Nonspecific: Believe it or not, scoliosis does not cause pain for most patients - unless the scoliosis is very severe. Similarly, a disk bulge is often of no consequence, and is simply a normal finding as we age. See a physician (consider seeing a neurologist since you have numbness) for further evaluation. ...Read more
GSV reflux below knee > 500ms. Mild swelling posteriorly. Lots of pain in lower leg, especially posterior-left side. Mri is normal. Strip the vein?
See vein specialist.: While you do have reflux, .5 seconds is minimal. The longer the reflux the greater the venous insufficiency. Having reflux does not mean that it is the cause of your symptoms. See a vein specialist for a venous evaluation to see if your symptoms are due to your veins. ...Read more

12 weeks post op tkr.Swollen l-nodes groin bilaterally. Pain @top of both thighs when walking. Stiff leg now.Tight pain in r quad.Melanoma '05 ok margin?
Not likely/see Dr.,,: This is likely due to the need for movement after surgery. Even after 12 weeks, it's important to keep moving as tolerated to get the legs conditioned again as muscle mass has been lost and needs to be rebuilt. It's not likely that melanoma has recurred as the results from before seem fairly good, but regular follow up with your doctor is always a good idea. Good luck. ...Read more
Acute venu embolism and thrombosis of deep vessels of lower extremity alrady had stints in legs and 2 venaava filters now having severe leg pain?
Recurrent DVT: It sounds like you were taken off lifelong blood thinner medication. You should be back on it and wearing 30-40 mmhg compression stockings daily. You do not say if the filters were both removed or how long the present condition exists. Usually, interventional corrections are sucessful if within a 2 week period of dvt. See your vascular spacialist immediately as this is very serious. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Diagnose in 2014 with arthritis in neck/back and lumbar spondylosis.Having swelling in lower back/ ankle/knee /muscle spasms/shooting pain down leg?
I would see a back: specialist, such as spine orthopedic or neurosurgeon, for sciatica and spinal stenosis in the lumbar spine. You will need MRI and/or CT myelograms. If left untreated or undiagnosed, spinal stenosis will debilitate you and push towards non-elective surgery which is never a good thing. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
