I'm a athlete. Always have pain in my left hip.  The pain is on the outermost part of my hip and by the groin area at times. Hip isn't that flexible.

Multiple causes: Your pain could be due to overuse injuries to your adductor (groin) muscles, and your it band (outside part of hip/side of leg) your groin pain could also be due to an injury to the bumper inside your hip called the labrum. I would recommend an evaluation by a sports medicine (either primary care or orthopedic) specialist if this is a longstanding problem. ...Read more

Generally keeping good health. Somehow I experience sweet pain in the back but not in the spine. It is in the middle portion behind ribs.No swelling.

Nondiagnostic: Your symptom is nondiagnostic without further information and it is not possible to exclude a spinal origin of your discomfort.

After doing so appropriate tests and/or xrays will be ordered for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

What would you say is the very best method in relieving arthritis in the lower back that causes pain throughout the legs?

Pain Control Program: Unfortunately arthritis will not go away - it is a finding on an MRI or x-ray but it doesn’t mean the patient is in pain. To control pain suggest core strengthening and stabilization program with an emphasis on flexion. If you smoke - stop smoking as that is a factor in back pain. Since both legs hurt, you really should be evaluated for stenosis and other problems that can cause back and leg pain. ...Read more

Wierd pain in thigh area of left leg.What are possible issues. In upper left leg in just the front of leg.It is a twisting feeling simular to a carliehorse only worse.It burns, bruises

As : As with most pain conditions, there can be a variety of potential problems that can cause the pain that you are describing. It is difficult to diagnose with the short description given and without a proper physical examination. Pain is often a sign of inflammation. Inflammation often occurs when something is irritated. Irritation occurs from a variety of different things. If the pain does not improve, you should see someone who is qualified to make an appropriate diagnosis. This may be nerve related, spine related, or something else. As always, i would highly suggest you do your research when seeking medical help. Find a physician who meets, or even better, exceeds the basic qualifications to practice in their specific field or sub-specialty. ...Read more

The top of my feet hurt constantly. More in the am and after sitting. could this be plantar fascitis? No pain in the bottom & no pain in heel.

Dorsal Arch Pain.: Plantar fasciitis, by definition, is inflammation of the fascia located on the bottom of the foot. The symptoms, interestingly, are very similar to the ones you describe. More than likely, your pain is being caused, in part, by an increased amount of stress being applied to your feet secondary to your pregnancy. The best solution is to have a specialist evaluate and suggest the best way to treat. ...Read more

There is a pain in my right leg. The muscles were very tight especially around the fibula. Is there any way to relieve the pain and relax the muscles?

Of course: Did you hurt your leg in any way? Excessive use of a group of muscles can cause them to get fatigued and need to be nursed back to normal with rest and some OTC anti inflammatory agents like Ibuprofen etc. Muscle relaxants are prescription drugs and should be reserved to treat those cases that have been assessed by doctors for a proper diagnosis. ...Read more

I have chikungunya and a swelling nude in the left buttock is that common?

I have chikungunya and a swelling nude in the left buttock is that common?

Not chikungunya: This is totally unrelated to chikungunya and is a separate problem. It's a bit hard to tell from the pic but it could be a 'Staph boil' or possibly an STD if you've been having unsafe sex. Sometimes the condom doesn't cover the 'whole area' so what's not covered could, in theory, get infected. Best to get a doc to see it and CULTURE that so you know exactly what it is, and therefore the best Rx. ...Read more
