Im 51 yrs old and I have noticed that when I am sitting i rock side to side. I don't remember doing that when i was younger. I just couldnt stay in one spot to long and still can't unless im doing something...Why do I rock like that?

Habit: Usually rocking is a habit...Once in a while it can be a biochemical imbalance in the brain that is either the body trunk's equivalent to a tremor in the arm or even a 'tic'...Which makes us feel 'good' to do and hard to stop ourselves from doing. Also even rarer would be a problem in the coordination center of the brain...Cerebellum. ...Read more

Why does your back hurt after you get an epidural? I got one three years ago and my back still hurts around that spot

Why does your back hurt after you get an epidural? I got one three years ago and my back still hurts around that spot

Epidural: Sometimes the procedure injures local nerves or ligaments that do not heal. Less likely three years out, you could have a low grade infection, so reasonable to see doctor other than who performed the epidural and ask for exam to figure this out. ...Read more

6 years ago i hit my head on the pavement and bled for a couple days. the spot is still sensitive when I touch it. is this bad?

No.: Any injury can cause damage to the superficial nerves in the skin and they may never recover from it. Sometimes people who get a shot in their arm or leg have an area of numbness just from that, that never goes away. It is not common, but it does happen and if it only causes minor symptoms, like sensitivity to touch, it is often no big deal. See your doc to verify it's nothing. ...Read more

4 concussions on the same spot .Its been 4 yrs from the last 1 n I still have my concussion bump on my head n my memory is getting worse. Is this bad?

No more injuries: If you've had 4 concussions, you shouldn't have any more- avoid activities that could cause another. Wear helmets for any activity where you can and protect your brain at all costs. You should be ok from the concussions you've had thus far, but make sure you have no more. ...Read more

I had gallbladder removal a week ago, and I still hurt badly. There is a very hard spot on my abdomen b/w incisions that feels hot. Is this normal?

Maybe: It's really difficult to determine if it's normal healing without examining in person. If it gets worse and worse prior to your follow up appointment, i would get it checked sooner or go to the er after hours. ...Read more

C-section scars: If you mean the scar on the skin opened, it does not mean that the incision made in the womb to deliver your child opened also. In any event, the scar on the womb is almost certainly healed, but it would be advised to have your next child in a hospital setting, so the monitoring of your labor (if you choose a vaginal delivery attempt) is possible to avoid a tear in the womb during labor. ...Read more

I fell on Christmas and had really bad burning on the front of my knee in one spot for about two days. Now when I touch it I feel pulling & numbness ?

I fell on Christmas and had really bad burning on the front of my knee in one spot for about two days. Now when I touch it I feel pulling & numbness ?

Prob not Serious: If you have no problem flexing or extending your knee, It sounds like you irritated the cutaneous (skin) nerves in your knee due to fall. Cutaneous nerve injury usually results in burning sensation followed by numbness in affected area. I would give it a few more weeks. If no improvement, then seek medical attention. If your symptoms worsen seek attention asap. Take Care! ...Read more

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then repeat a home pregnancy test . There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit. ...Read more

I fell on Christmas and had really bad burning on the front of my knee in one spot for about two days. Now when I touch it on right side I feel pulling on the left side and numbness in a small area?

I fell on Christmas and had really bad burning on the front of my knee in one spot for about two days. Now when I touch it on right side I feel pulling on the left side and numbness in a small area?

Knee injury: A contusion of the knee structures would be likely if you landed on your knee when you fell. Numbness is probably due to bruising of superficial nerves. Bone or patella bruises may take a couple of weeks to heal. Worrisome signs would be swelling, persistence or worsening of pain. See an orthopedic surgeon if you still have significant knee discomfort. ...Read more

So my moms hand has this one dark spot on it where there was a hole in her glove and she says it itches really bad ?

Need more details: But given what you have said, i suspect she was working outside with gloves on, and now has a spot where there was a hole in the glove and the spot itches.

Is it possible for a c-section scar to open 4 yrs later? Mine is red in one spot & oozing. The fluid stinks really bad!

Is it possible for a c-section scar to open 4 yrs later? Mine is red in one spot & oozing. The fluid stinks really bad!

No.: In your history you have put in that you have an abscess and endometriosis as well as the fact that you are on antibiotics.No, the c-section is not opening up after 4 years. The more likely diagnosis is ingrown hair infection/abscess or an endometriosis seeding into the scar.Your ob/gyn will be able to give you a better answer once he/she has had a chance to examine you and do some investigations. ...Read more
