Shoes too tight: Maybe the shoes are too tight, and they constrict the circulation. Maybe you are wearing socks that cut off circulation too, causing you to go numb; or you may have something that is pushing against or compressing the nerves, that results in you going numb. If you are pushing on the balls of your feet, you may be compressing the nerves. ...Read more

I am on sailing boat and hurt my right leg. I can't feel it from the knee down. It is numb and I can't put any weight on it. What could I have done. ?

The most common: cause of numbness of the leg is a pinched nerve in the back. Even though your question doesn't mention back trauma, only leg, you may have hurt yourself in both places. A blood clot in the leg can cause numbness, but typically it would be painful to touch, hot, and perhaps discolored/red. Perhaps you hurt your knee and the fact you can't walk makes it feel numb. Prompt/urgent evaluation is needed. ...Read more

Why does my right leg feels like is going to stop working? When I am walking around i feel like my leg is going to give out on me

Why does my right leg feels like is going to stop working? When I am walking around i feel like my leg is going to give out on me

Instability, neuro.: A few thoughts. The knee or hip joint could be unstable from prior trauma or surgeries. It could also be a neurological problem that is causing weakness. The issue can arise anywhere from where the nerve connects to the affected muscle, through the spinal cord and up to the brain. Bottom line, i'd take this seriously and get it checked out. Best of luck. ...Read more

My shoulder hurt just sitting down in a chair all day. How can I prevent this?

Shoulder Pain: If you are getting pain in your shoulder from sitting then i would think it is more posture related. If you are at a desk and working on a computer make sure the keyboard is close to waist level. Also try and consciously keep your shoulders retracted. This will put less strain on the shoulders. Try taking some anti-inflammatory medication. If it is inflammation it should respond. ...Read more

What causes my feet to hurt so bad that i can't stand up. My feet hurt really bad when i put pressure on them. But after i keep getting up and sitting right back down a few times, I am able to stand the pain that is in the heel and the arch of my foot. I

This : This sounds like an acute flare up of a condition known as plantar fasciitis.There is a band of thick tissue called the plantar fascia that runs across the bottom of your foot, it connects your heel bone to your toes. Often times this band becomes tight and inflammed thus causing heel and arch pain. This condition requires a lot of treatment and supportive care. Visit a podiatrist(foot doctor) for assistance. In the meantime take advil (ibuprofen) for pain and inflammation, request physical therapy, and buy a pair of orthotics. You may need custom orthotics in the future. Good luck. ...Read more
