I have pain in left leg at hip when I try to lift it and it shoots done the front to the knee. Had for 1yr. I am now getting some dull pain in my groin?

Possible hip: It may be an arthritic hip based on the distribution of your pain. Does it hurt to get a shoe or sock on that side? Do you limp after walking awhile on that side? Do you get relief with over the counter medication? If yes, it is most likely arthritis in that hip. You should see an orthopedic surgeon for an opinion. ...Read more

For the past couple of months, I have had aching in my right foot and ankle, as well as my right hip. What can this be? My hip has been aching off and on over a longer period. My left knee also hurts, but more like pain instead of aching. I am 61 yrs. Old

There: There are many different kinds of arthritic conditions that would cause joint pain to "migrate" from joint to joint. A disc problem in your lower back can also cause pain at any point or points from the hip on down to the foot (without your back actually hurting).

Also, are you taking a statin to lower cholesterol? Statins are notorious for causing all sorts of muscle and joint aches and pains.

"use it or lose it" has its corollary with the fox inverse square rule of life: "as we get older, we get uglier and sicker." sometimes, it feels like an uphill battle, but it's very important to stay active.

I would discuss these symptoms with your doctor, who should be able to piece things together to find an answer for you. Good luck and feel better! ...Read more

For 6+ months I can't sleep through aching, burning, deep leg and hip pain and awaken stiff in the AM. Strangely the pain is helped only by exercise?

Not surprising: You may be experiencing some inflammatory arthritis. Unlike osteoarthritis, that sometimes gets worse with use, inflammatory arthritis may get better with use. You become more aware of it at night because you have nothing else to think about.

Talk to your doctor about your symptoms. He/she may want to run some other tests. ...Read more

Nerve?: Could be a pinched nerve (spinal stenosis, spur, inflammation, tight muscle). Blood clot in the leg is another thought, but usually associated with some swelling and certain risk factors. An exam and further details on the nature and timing of pain will reveal more information and help guide successful treatment. ...Read more

I am experiencing hip pain, low back pain, knee pain and pain shooting down the leg. The following also describe me: Back pain, Leg numbness, Leg. ..

Ibuprofen/naproxen/acetaminophen can help some pain. For diagnosis/treatment, you need a lumbar spine MRI and formal evaluation to see if all problems tie together. Treatment possible.

Hip pain when lifting it or moving it while laying down. Hurts to lift with leg extended and when bent at knee. Cause? 17 yrs old f 208 lbs htn & pcos

Hard to say: There are several possibilities and an exam could probably determine the cause. Probably the three most common causes in a 17 year old would be a soft tissue condition around the hip such as a tendinitis, or an inflammatory condition of the hip itself such as a synovitis, or that it is a non musculoskeletal condition involving the abdomen or pelvis. Consider being seen. ...Read more

I have severe pain between my hips. Painful testicles. Aching muscles, knees and ankles. Sore gums and throat. Ibuprofen takes away the symptoms.

Varies: Ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory and so the idea that it works suggests there may be an inflammatory component to it. It can be as simple as the myalgia a and arthralgias that can come around a viral infection, or it could be something more serious. I would not hesitate to be seen for it. ...Read more

Laid sideways and knee locked as the bone at the top of my leg came out and hasn't gone back in. Knee has been locked for ages. Hip is really aching and I am limping everywhere. Have I dislocated it? Another problem????

Torn meniscus: Is likely the cause for your locked knee. The knee can often be successfully manipulated in an emergency department to allow for correction. Many times this requires sedation to achieve, so bring a driver. Following this procedure, a knee brace can be worn until consultation with an orthopedic physician, possibly to include a MRI, can be done. An arthroscopic procedure can remove the injury ...Read more
