One month before I was playing cricket a ball hit to my leg. Then a lump appeared there what should I do?

Leg injury: If it is just a lump with no pain then it is just a hematoma. If the swelling is in your knee/ankle joint and you have difficulty with movement, then this needs to be evaluated by a physician for any ligament injury. Overtime, this lump should get smaller, given that it persists for over a month, you need to have it examined by a physician to be certain it is nothing sinister. ...Read more

I have 3 bulge disk, back pain runs down left side butt/thigh/foot. Pain relief solutions.? Stretching, medicine don't work. Frustrated help pls.

Sciatica: Sciatica pain can be very disabling. Fortunately in most cases it is self limited and may take time. Some patients benefit from traction therapy with combination of muscle relaxers, analgesics (short course of opiates), and anti-inflammatory medication. Acupuncture me be alternative. Epidural treatments may be considered prior to surgical alternatives. Hope you feel better soon. ...Read more

I have spinal stenosis with sciatic pain from foot to thigh. Now, I am having severe pain up to groin. I have been usingfentanyl patch and oxycodone with no relief. What should I do?

I have spinal stenosis with sciatic pain from foot to thigh. Now, I am having severe pain up to groin. I have been usingfentanyl patch and oxycodone with no relief. What should I do?

See, below: If you are using oxycodone regularly (daily) than you are going into withdrawal despite a more consistent level of fentanyl provided by the patch. That withdrawal at the end of the oxycodone dosing interval is exacerbating your pain. Another trick that is not well appreciated is the use of ultra low dose Naltrexone (0.25 mgs 1-2x daily) also the other drugs per answers given by the other docs. ...Read more

L5-S1 microdiscectomy Fri for left leg sciatic pain. Calf/foot pain relief w/some thigh/behind knee pain. Pain less AM but sharp pain down left leg into foot w/pain level of 9.5 & hurts sitting/lying.

L5-S1 microdiscectomy Fri for left leg sciatic pain. Calf/foot pain relief w/some thigh/behind knee pain. Pain less AM but sharp pain down left leg into foot w/pain level of 9.5 & hurts sitting/lying.

Microdiskectomy: Give it some time; sometimes simply moving the roots around can upset the lumbar plexus and give you intermittent (even quite severe) pain, although it resolves within a week or two. Getting to the disk requires mobilization of the roots and inflammatory changes from that- or the disk herniation- itself can give this pain. As long as bowel and bladder OK, hopefully this will resolve also. Best! ...Read more

I was hit by a ball at age 12 just above the foot, below the shin. 14 years later fluid had built and I've begun experiencing restless leg syndrome.

Cause and effect??: It is hard to imagine that the injury and the restless leg syndrome now are some how a cause and effect situation. To remove all doubt, have your leg examined as well as validating the potential causes for restless leg syndrome. ...Read more

I've sometimes have leg pain from driving when my foot hits the gas petal. What's wrong?

Muscle problem: If your pain is in your leg then it is likely muscular in nature. The muscles that move your foot up and down are actually attached in your lower leg. So pain when you point your foot down could be from an injured or sore muscle. There are other structures tht could cause the pain so you probably need to go see someone for a physical exam. ...Read more

I hit my leg below my knees was swollen. I put ice and wrapped it with a bandage for a week. Now I look at my foot on the side of my foot is purple?

I hit my leg below my knees was swollen. I put ice and wrapped it with a bandage for a week. Now I look at my foot on the side of my foot is purple?

Bandaging can do: That. I find this happens often wafter doing surgery on one part of the foot and after removing the bandage there is purple in another part of the foot. I think the bandaging possibly causes blood vessels to break or leak and the blood spilling causes the black and blue marks. No worries should disappear soon. ...Read more

Fell on knees 6weeks ago. Right knee had fluid but itwas gone. Hit rt knee again after1month. Little fluid. Now hve tingling/numbness on foot/leg. Problem?

See an orthopedist: It is hard to know without examining you, and without knowing where you are numb, what is causing your problem. It sounds like you first had an internal injury to your knee, and did the right thing by giving it a chance to heal. You can injure the peroneal nerve near the knee. This could result in weakness of your foot, and is something to take seriously - see an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more

Fell hit knee cap on wooden stair. Not bruised at sight but on left side of knee and hurts down front of leg and throbs at top of foot. Serious?

Tough to say: It is difficult to tell on the internet. Are you on blood thinners? It is possible you have developed a hematoma or pinched a nerve. Most likely, the pain is referred to your foot and will resolve. If you can't bear weight, can't move your foot or have a loss of sensation see a doctor tonight. ...Read more

A contusion: ="BRUISE" can occur in the lining of the bone itself and these "bone bruises" can last for a while!!!! Apply heat (this will "speed up" the resorption (healing)!!!

I have experienced severe right leg pain. Almost and electrical sensation I have lower l4, L5 deteriotion and I get spinal injection. But this time it has not helped the pain in my right from the hip to my foot when the pain hits the hardest I sweat prof

Back: Back and leg pain can be caused by disks, stenosis, slipping of the spine (spondylolithesis), foraminal stenosis, spine fractures, etc.

Most likely your right leg pain is from herniated l4-5 disk. Patients with disk herniations may benefit from giving time for the pain to settle, physical therapy, steroid injections and surgery. If the disk herniation did not respond to steroid injection then you should see a spine surgeon to discuss surgical options. There has been many advances in spine surgery and I would recommend looking into endoscopic spine surgery. Please see my health guide on lumbar disk herniations and sciatica.

Maximum Ibuprofen dose varies on your weight and medical conditions I recommend discussing this with your doctor.

Good luck! ...Read more

Hit my shin 7 days ago, it hurt pretty bad, big knot on leg and now I noticed bruising and swelling in my foot, right above ankle.

Common: Bruising from shin initially spreads down to foot and ankle due to gravity. Should resolve in time. Try some elevation and ankle exercises. See doctor if gets worse rather than better. ...Read more
