Yes, : Yes, you should report this to your physician right away. If associated with arm swelling and or color changes of the skin you should seek care urgently. Your description is not specific enough to be more precise. A condition known as paget schroeder can occur commonly in young muscular men which leads to venous narrowing and ultimately venous clot. This has been termed effort vein thrombosis and is seen in the dominant upper extremity related to muscular and ligamentous attachments at the first rib and clavicle junction. However clearly there is not enough information to make a diagnosis. If determined by your physician, an ultrasound may be the next step. ...Read more

Why do every time I have a hard workout with stretching and working my legs out i bleed from my vagina? Fresh blood. I run track.

Bleeding ; workout: The one thing that comes to mind would be if during the stretch you have some trauma to the vaginal area. Another condition to consider would be muscle breakdown that happens when you over workout. I would suggest you have an evaluation if this happens again. Hope that this was helpful. ...Read more

I run cross country and track distance. Above my age level. I run a lot. Is a doctor on here suggested to look up patella femoral syndrome. Relation?

Runner's Knee: Runnerboy, i hope this helps...As a sports specialist, patellofemoral synd in some form is probably the most common knee problem i see in young athletes, especially runners. Typically it's felt behind the kneecap and is a stabbing pain. A good start would be getting on an icing program, 20 minutes 4-5 xs a day religiously. If it limits sports or there is swelling, see a sports specialist. ...Read more

My bones get weak very quickly during a track work out. Is this due to a lack of vitamins? 18 year old male. In pretty good shape.

My bones get weak very quickly during a track work out. Is this due to a lack of vitamins? 18 year old male. In pretty good shape.

Need exam: You may be iron and/or vitamin d deficient simply because these are common; your physician can check and if the former, help determine why. I do not know exactly what you mean by weak bones, but suspect this is muscle pain; if you're keeping up in athletics it is probably not major muscle disease but again a physician's office visit is in order. Good luck. I want to heard others' ideas. ...Read more
