Could be: You may lurch from the pain but I suspect you may also have some lumbar disc disease compounding your problems. If you are overweight, the single best thing you can do is lose weight. If you smoke you need to quit. Add some supplemental calcium of 1500mg/day and add some vitamin d if you tend to be a more indoors girl. ...Read more

Hey, yeah, I'm 25 and have bow legs and hip probs. I have hyperextended knees and that's giving me pain at the moment. One leg is more bowed than the other, so one leg is longer. I'm so over it, what do I do?

Leg/Hip problems: Hello. It sounds like you are having pain because your ankles, knees and now hips are not properly aligned. This stresses the surrounding tendons and ligaments. The leg length difference may be due to scoliosis. You should definitely see an Orthopedist who will determine why you have this problem and most likely will prescribe orthotics to insert in your shoes. This will provide more comfort. ...Read more

Medication is giving me adverse reactions to my fibromyalgia, rhuematoid and anxiety. I have been prescribed tramodol for my pain related to fibromyalgia. Unfortunately, it causes my entire back, shoulders, hips and thighs to go into a type of "freeze" t

Hello, sorry: Hello,
sorry to hear about your pain. Tramadol is one of the medications that is prescribed for treatment of chronic pain. It has been used in fibromyalgia and can be successful in some individuals. Tramadol does work with central nervous system, it is considered a "weak opioid", so from that stand point you are getting some central nervous system " coverage". Tramadol is not the only medication that can be tried. There are other ones, such as lyrica, cymbalta, savella (milnacipran) etc that have been utilized in management of this condition. Those medications may or may not be covered by your insurance. Chronic pain is an extremely difficult thing to deal with. It is important to allow some time for medication to stay in your system before you decide that it may bot be working for you.
Good luck! ...Read more
