Gallstones Cause Pain In Butt And Leg Muscles
I'm concerned that I might have gallbladder issues, possibly gallstones. Can stones cause muscle soreness in the backs of the legs & in the forearms?
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length.

Not typically: Gallbladder symptoms usually effect the upper abdomen either in the middle or on the right side under the rib cage (over the liver). Some patients complain of back pain on that side as well. Frequently, gallbladder problems are confused and treated as heartburn or reflux. It would be very unusual to have leg pain associated with the gallbladder. ...Read more

Nerve damage: Damage to the nerves going to the muscles in that region. Called fasciculations. Possibly due to damage caused by surgery. this should resolve over time.

Can you have gallstones and not have a gallbladder? I'm having severe right upper quad. Pain with nausea. Had recent CT and labs all are normal.
Yes: Stones can occur within the bile duct as well. Sometimes these stones are not well seen on ct, but if obstructing the duct, the duct will dilate. Dilated ducts are usually well seen on ct or ultrasound. Stones may be better seen with mrcp (imaging by MRI machine) or ERCP (a procedure done by a GI doctor). Ercp can be done to remove duct stones, or to treat a possible duct "stricture"or "spasm". ...Read more

While doing lunges had tingling/mild pain down lateral thigh in leg that was behind me. Cause? Okay to try to work muscle?
Yes, but carefully?: You can pull the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve during activity that tightens the inguinal area, compressing it. If chronic, o recurring, it is called "meralgia paresthetica. You may have also experienced transient piriformis muscle spasm, which can compress the sciatic nerve of its branches. The problem does not seem to be a disc. I would slowly resume activity. If it recurs, see your doctor! ...Read more

Over time does exertional compartment syndrome cause all of the compartments in the lower leg to be affected? Smaller tenser muscles?
Not likely: The anterior compartment is the tightest, and when you're having pain there you usually stop exerting yourself, reducing the pressure there and in all the compartments. It is possible in other compartments though, and the syndrome has been described in every compartment of arms and legs. In my experience it's limited to one compartment at t time just the same. ...Read more

What would cause a person to have a fever almost daily for a year and one leg that swells like an elephants w fluid found behind muscles of this 39 f?
Fever & leg swelling: Of course, it is not absolutely certain that the 2 problems are related, but assuming they are, I would be suspicious of the possibility of venous insufficiency in the leg, a clot in the leg, a rarer condition called lymphedema (where the lymph vessels are blocked). These can give risk to a chronic indolent infection which might cause fever. Fever for a year is so unusual that it will need eval. ...Read more
