I have a muscle ache at the top of my left leg, especially when tired. I am on Flecainide and Warfarin. Is this serious?

Uncertain: You need to discuss this with your physician. The ache may be related to what is in the top of the leg. If it is the thigh you have muscles, nerves, vessels, and bone - and you could be bleeding since you are on warfarin. If it is the top of the lower leg - similar structures are there. The thigh bone can be affected differently than the low leg bone. ...Read more

For the last 2 months, I've been feeling really thirsty tiredness skin and sweat smelling sweet?

Many possibilities: Hi. You should see your doctor. We out here in internet-land can't get enough information. Almost any/every disease makes you tired, but most tired people don't have a disease.

I suggest you see your doctor. Good luck! ...Read more
