I'm having a prickly sensation appearing in different parts of my body. Mainly legs. Started during ovulation. Coincidence or not? Anything serious?
Prickly sensation: How long is it lasting? How often occurring? If momentary that never comes back may not be serious but if recurrent or persistent (like even after ovulation) would follow up with neurologist, could be nerve dysfunction, disc disease, autoimmune, diabetes, thyroid, B12 deficiency, or MS or viral sequela from mosquito bite (Zika). Follow up with doc, parathesias are not the norm ...Read more
I am getting leg swelling during ovulation and menstruation. BP and BW fine, my dr prescribed lasix (furosemide). Is this something I just have to live with?
Lasix (furosemide) or diet change: If you eat or drink a lot of sodium/salt daily, you can retain more fluids. Try cutting down on salt intake and checking labels for sodium. Drinking more water and walking can be helpful as well. Seeking medical attention if no improvement is wise. Lasix (furosemide) can be a short term fix but not usually necessary unless you have other medical issues. ...Read more

If it lasts a short while. In my opinion, any tissue/muscle that is stretched beyond its usual capacity, will cause some pain/discomfort, which should not last more than 36-48 hours (unless you stretch it much over it capacity & causing a pulled muscle), then it would for few weeks.
Keep exercising to stretch till that limit, then over a time, its capacity would increase and pain would not occur. ...Read more

Depends on exercise.: It depends on gthe exercise you might have been doing. Repetitive motion might put pressure on some joints and bones over time and cause pain, as well as the sudden relief of the action. The muscles may need relief. This might be a circulation issue or a plantar fasciitis issue with pain from weight on your foot and lower leg. Sports make you use all your muscles, etc. Be more diverse. ...Read more

L5-S1: L5-s1 disks can cause severe sciatic leg pain. I would recommend consultation with a spine surgeon if you have failed 3 steroid injections. Leg pain secondary to herniated disk usually responds well to surgery. There are many surgical options including traditional and minimally invasive surgery. I would recommend looking for a surgeon who is experienced in endosocpic minimally invasive surgery. Endoscopic treatment is not always an option, but it is worth exploring due to less tissue damage, quicker discharge and recovery and less post operative pain. Please see my health guide on disk herniations and sciatica for more information. Good luck! ...Read more

If you are uncomfortable you may take a couple of tylenols, (acetaminophen) especially at beg time ...Read more
