Hey there. I often get a fluttering/bubbling sensation in my body- legs, butt, arm, neck, stomach. It lasts for a few seconds, then stops and starts again. I am worried it is a blood clot or the start of a nerve disease. Thanks?

Get examined: Swelling in the armpit or axilla can be due to inflammation of the sweat glands or the hair follicles especially if started after an episode of shaving the hair in this area. Lymph nodes in this region can also be enlarged if they react to infections or to cancer of the breast but wouldn't be painful early on. Get a check up to see what is the problem and if a biopsy is needed. ...Read more

Very sharp pain about two miles into a run. Had it checked out and was a calf strain. Did therapy and a year later it's back. Is there a cure?

Running method: The cause may be your running method or your running equipment or course. I'd recommend getting evaluated by a running expert to evaluate ways to decrease strain on your calf muscle and heel cord during your runs. Of course, hydration, sleep, stretching and nutrition is important, but if this is chronic, please get evaluated. Hope this helps! ...Read more

It can be neck nerve: This can be a pinched nerve in the neck such as the 5th cervical nerve. You can discuss with your physicians about seeing a neurologist. In the meantime use a neck pillow to help the neck, consider seeing physical therapy about neck therapy and traction.

Recurring sharp pain building up to last for about a minute under my left cheek bum. Is this a disc problem or a thigh problem, or more serious?

Recurring sharp pain building up to last for about a minute under my left cheek bum. Is this a disc problem or a thigh problem, or more serious?

Yes and no: Likely from the pyriformis muscle which can be from strain or from the sciatic nerve which frequently runs through the middle of the muscle. If you are driving distances, keep your foot on the same side as the buttocks pain (likely left), in the 12 o'clock position and see if the pain improves. Check with an osteopathic physician for a physical diagnosis and to suggest physical therapy if need. ...Read more

Neuritis: It sound as though a proper digital nerve to the second toe may have been irritated due to the increased activity level. As long as the numbness is isolated to just that toe, you might consider giving it some more time to recover. To remove all doubt, have your foot evaluated by a specialist. ...Read more

A fall caused a crack in my kneecap while out-of-town.  I waited a week to see the doc.  I have extreme muscle cramps in my thigh. Is that a concern?

It could be: The four muscles of the quadriceps the patella, the patellar tendon all the other soft tissues attaching to the patella , the tibial tuberosity form the extensor mechanism, so no surprise if you have some cramps in the leg. The spasm of those muscles could separate the fracture more and increase the injury. ...Read more

Had pneumonia 9 weeks ago. Having weakness in my legs and arms at times. All labs normal. Could this be Guillain-Barré syndrome?? What do I do?

There are many variants described lately, which most of them I am not very familiar with. In your case I cannot rule out a very mild/ atypical case.
