Hi I have serious groin pain in inner thigh without any inflammatio.Please advise as i feel the pain but doesn't disturb me from walking , ?
R.I.C.E.: Try ice and elevation first. 20 minutes on, 30-40 minutes off. Keep the foot above the heart. It is a natural way to stop swelling by constricting the blood vessels and allowing fluid to drain back to the heart via gravity. Sounds line a possible knee effusion that could need drainage. If ice doesn't improve your swelling, go see your regular doctor or orthopedist. Good luck! ...Read more
I have a red bump on my thigh, i think it's a mosquito bite but not sure. It also has inflammation around it.
Mosquito bite: Does it itch or hurt? If it is a mosquito bite you can use a home remedy. Store aloe vera gel in refrigerator & apply to affected area. Rub basil leaf on bite. It repels mosquitoes & has anti-inflammatory properties. You can mix 2 parts baking soda w 1 part water. Stir into paste & place it over the mosquito bite. Can use calamine lotion. If not a mosquito bite, if it becomes hot, red, tender >>. ...Read more
I have been on a low carb, keto diet and after a few weeks I noticed bumps and uneven skin on my thighs. I read it could be the reduction of inflammation from the diet revealing my real thigh topography. Could this be true? I think I have lipedema.

I had constant lower back and leg pain for 12 hours straight pain medication did not help but inflammation tablets helped?
Pain in the low back radiating into the leg, and relieved with anti-inflammatory medication (such as Motrin or aspirin) suggests Sciatica, a form of radiculopathy(a medical condition affecting the root of a spinal nerve).

2 inch scar-like indentation on the back of my leg behind knee. Mild inflammation/pain feeling. What could this be?
Knee pain: pain behind the knee with swelling could mean an inflamed vein or thrombophlebitis. I would try a cool compress/water to apply on the leg and also would try an anti inflammatory like motrin or advil (ibuprofen) as needed.

X-ray and lab work may be helpful. Try tylenol (acetaminophen) or liniment for comfort. Wait on arthritis medication if you have high blood pressure. ...Read more
Can MRI tell if there is inflammation/swelling of a muscle in a leg or must it be compared to the other leg?
MRI can tell: as long as the correct "sequences" were performed. One type of sequence looks specifically for fluid in the soft tissues, and it is very sensitive. You don't need the opposite side compared. If you would like a complete explanation of your MRI, I provide second opinions via HealthTap Concierge @ healthtap.com/saurbornmd ...Read more
