Pain in lowet leg goes away then come back blood clot or no?

Pain in lowet leg goes away then come back blood clot or no?

Only way to: Know for sure is with a test called venous duplex doppler ultrasound. If you do have a clot, it can break off and travel to lungs, a condition called pulmonary embolism. This is a serious condition, could be fatal. Treatment is immediate anticoagulation, so get to a doctor if there is any question of blood clot, or deep vein thrombophlebitis. ...Read more

Extreme back neck pain,  lower back pain,  thighs, legs pain, tiny blood after sex once i cum. Left ovary pain.  What is caused?  Ultrasound can't see

Pelvic congestion: This can be related to pelvic congestion syndrome. In this condition you develop varicose varicose veins in the pelvis involving the ovarian veins. It's more common on the left side. Usually the pain is worse when you're upright for a long time, and gets better when you lay down. There is also pain during intercourse and orgasm. Consult with your obgyn. ...Read more

Sharp pain under left shoulder blade. Movement-no pain, breathing-pain. Prev on blood thinner 4 clot. Off 1 month. Gall bladder out 1 wk. Another clot?

Possibly: You have pleuritic pain - meaning respiratory motion (rubbing of the pleural surfaces or the muscles of respiration) provokes pain. A recurrent blood clot is certainly a possibility. Especially if you have history of blood clots, are off medication, and had recent surgery - all risk factors. You definitely need to be evaluated right away. ...Read more

Lower back pain, leg pain, blood in stool. What are these symptoms of?

Go see your doctor: Blood in the stool is a "red flag" condition and reason to see your doctor. It may be minor or major. The association of other conditions may mean one or multiple conditions. Looking for one diagnosis may not be realistic because medical theory no longer uses occam's razor, the belief that one diagnosis is usually the best answer to a bunch of symptoms. ...Read more

Pain lower abdomen middle along with lower back either side of spine. Urine dip stick shows no wbc, blood but pain in lower back persists. Pls help?

Too many possible: Pain in the abdomen suggests a problem internally. A good generalist would be a start in getting to the diagnosis. Back pain may be secondary to just about any abdominal, vascular, or chest problem. So, i would rule out important causes first. Then, if this is simply some degenerative disease or a disc herniation, then nonsurgical treatment may be started without concern. ...Read more

I've lower back pain which is now raidiating down my right leg to toes (tingly). X-ray & bloods clear doc thinks bulging disc . What's the tingling?

Nerve irritation: In this case, one of your nerve roots is likely irritated by the bulging disc. The disc may have a tear and release chemical signals that will irritate a nearby nerve root, or even intermittently make contact and compress the root. The resultant stray signals from the root is the tingling. No need to see doctor unless tingling gets painful or leg becomes weak/numb & interferes with function. ...Read more

History of low back pain bulging/herniated disks l3-s1, reinjured now left leg going numb, pain when using bathroom, and left ovary pain is that weird?

Pain: The symptoms you are feeling can be related to disc protrusion/herniation. If you have pain in the ovary and that may not be related to your back. These could be separate issues and you should check with your primary md and/or ob/gyn doc on this first. A urinary tract infection is also something to rule out here. ...Read more

I've been having bad sciatic nerve/lower back pain, Now Right above my knee is swollen.Is that from nerves?Disck herniation? Blood clot?

None of the above: You certainly are a worrier to come up with those 3 possibilities instead of something more commonplace, like knee strain. Did a doctor diagnose you with sciatica, or did you diagnose yourself? Sounds like you need to have your knee examined by a live doctor in his/her office, someone who can counsel you about what to worry about & what not to worry about. Trusting Dr. Google is hazardous. ...Read more

Need to examine: Any abnormal bleeding needs to be evaluated and that can only be done in person. You may have just hemorrhoids but even that can cause anemia. Please consult your doctor.

Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
