Inflammatory?: You need to know if is inflammatory and a sedimentary rate, RA factor, and nuclear scan can rule this out. If not inflammatory, the pain pattern suggests sacroiliac joint (sij) dysfunction, which cannot be seen on ct and MRI scans nor any other imaging study, as reported in the medical literature. Diagnosis of sij disorder is done by means of a fluroscopic guided diagnostic block of the sij. ...Read more

Leg pain: The diagnosis will vary if unilateral leg affected vs. Both at the same time. Observe for redness, swelling and fever, moderate limping. Usually, it is musculo-skeletal
from activities in this active age group. Can try a trial of Advil or aleve every 8-12 hrs. If above symptoms arise, or continues with pain past 3-5 d, should be checked by your pediatrician. "Growing pains " are usually at nite. ...Read more

I get leg pain when I walk to little, to much, cross them or has my other leg on them, I walk every day but is there anything else I can do to stop it?

Broad differential: Leg pain has a broad differential, but the most common orthopedic reason is related to back problems. Since I see you are 26 it is unlikely that you have a vascular problem, which leaves something neurogenic or rheumatologic. Since the differential diagnosis is so broad, I recommend you start with your family practitioner to narrow the differential. ...Read more

My mom age 44 is suffering from leg pain for the past 5 days. Initially she was able to walk but now she is suffering a lot to make one step. Wts d pm?

Many diagnoses: Your mother could be suffering from a multitude of ailments including arthritis, an infection in her joint or a muscle injury; however given the acuity of her symptoms it would be a good idea to make sure she does not have a fracture (stress fracture or complete). It would be advisable to have her visit her local physician or ortho surgeon for a thorough evaluation. ...Read more

I am experiencing hip pain and leg pain and it is unbearable to run and hurts to even walk.?

Be seen: Multiple possibilities, I would not hesitate to be seen for a specific diagnosis. Among the three more common causes are something wrong with the hip itself, or a Tendonitis of the tendon that runs on the outside of the hip often referred to as iliotibial band syndrome, or an irritation if a nerve in the back causing pain that runs into the hip and leg; other possibilities as well. ...Read more

If you never really exercise or go for a walk, and then start walking long periods can that cause right leg pain, I'm not overweight?

If you never really exercise or go for a walk, and then start walking long periods can that cause right leg pain, I'm not overweight?

You don't have to be: overweight to experience leg pain from over walking or overexerting yourself when you start exercising after not doing it before. Usually, it's best to warm up, and do some stretching (leg) exercises, so you don't strain yourself when you first start out. Also, hydrate so you don't get cramps from dehydration, or electrolye deficiency. I see that you take caffeine tablets. That could dehydrate you 2. ...Read more

I have leg pain when I walk with heavy things on my back. Is it related to back problems? I injured my back a few years ago, not very severely.

Leg pain w/ loads: Yes, possibly. Sometimes sciatica manifest in the leg and not the back. Would avoid head loads. Heavy back packs. Consider kinesiotape, PT for strengthening exercises. Stretches, massage. Check arches for flat feet and use orthodics.

Possibly, so ask Dr: I'll give a link to a long list of side effects, but definitely ask your doctor and try to find an alternative treatment.

Psychologically I've processed I'm fat. I walk with a swing I think and feel out of breath and get leg pain. Has my body begun to work like I think?

Body image?: What I hearin your question are issues of body image, and can be discussed at length with a reputable psychotherapist. What does fat mean to you? What does it mean to be fat? I also hear issues of personal control in your question. Do you feel as though you have no say about your weight and whether or not you are actually fat? Find a good psychotherapist, and have at it! Best of luck. ...Read more

My mother has had extreme hip/leg pain for almost a year now, to the point where she can hardly walk, what could cause this? My mother has had extreme hip/leg pain for almost a year now, to the point where she can hardly walk and is now using a cane. It

If: If your mother's bone scan of the hip did not show any signs of loosening of the hip implant, then I think it is unlikely that her pain is coming from the hip. I would be more concerned about her spinal stenosis. Narrowing of the spinal canal (stenosis) often causes numbness, tingling, and burning pain in the legs. These symptoms can often be relieved with an operation to decompress the pinched nerve roots. I think you should take your mother to an orthopaedic spine surgeon. If you can't find anyone close to home, consider pittsburgh, morgantown, or columbus. Be sure to bring all of her xrays and bone scans (images, not just the reports). Good luck. ...Read more

I have left low leg pain, by calf area, had scan today and no blood clots, what could this pain be hurts worse to walk on it. Feels like leg is tight.

Muscle or tendon: Probably a muscle or tendon injury. An injury to the Achilles tendon or calf muscles can give similar symptoms. Tightness may indicate edema or hematoma in deep soft tissues (ie: muscles). Sometimes a knee injury with a joint effusion can be the cause. Please see your Doctor or a Sports Medicine or Orthopedic Specialist for further evaluation. ...Read more
