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
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.

Best of luck. ...Read more

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
