See A Vascular MD: You should seek evaluation by a medical professional, preferrably a vein specialist or vascular surgeon. Since you have obvious varicose veins on your lower legs and have swelling as well as burning in the legs, it is likely that you have a medical condition known as venous insufficiency or venous reflux.

Coming and going mild burning pain in leg and very mild feeling of pulling a muscle. Would a DVT be most likely red and swollen?

Coming and going mild burning pain in leg and very mild feeling of pulling a muscle. Would a DVT be most likely red and swollen?

Not necessarily: A calf with a DVT can be red and swollen but it certainly doesn't have to be. Redness with dvts is actually fairly uncommon. Swelling and pain is more typical but sometimes you might only have one or the other or neither. If you have concerns that you might have a dvt, you should get it checked out. ...Read more

8 year old is in tears over burning legs. (they are not hot to touch) seasonal allergies are bad. Burning swollen itchy eyes. Why are legs burning?

Uncertain: Seasonal allergy is not related to burning legs which may be a neurologic issue. If your child has eczema, it may be from the excessive dry skin which may be relieved by application of a moisturizer 2x daily preferably with at least one within 3 minutes after bathing. You may also try a 4% lidocaine lotion to see if this helps. If problem persists, see a doctor. ...Read more

Do I need to go to the ER for the past 4 days I have had swollen legs ankle feet fingers and face now it hurts to walk on my feet they burning?

No: No, but do make an appointment with your regular primary physician. Although it is a scary condition, it is probably not an emergency and you'll be better served by seeing your pcp. If he or she thinks it's serious, then you may be admitted but it'll be better and more efficient care than the ed from your symptoms. Hope this helps! ...Read more

What cause a burning sensation in lower leg right below the knee. The burning sensation comes and goes. It's not swellon or warm to touch.

Hard to say: Answer depends on lots of information that we don't have. How long have you had it? When does it occur? Do you have any other medical problems? This is the sort of question best answered after an in-depth history & exam. Unless, after tracking the pain, you can relate it to an activity (certain exercise, prolonged sitting/standing in a certain position or chair) or a particular style of shoe. ...Read more

"Burning" may be: Because swelling is compressing a nerve, but you need an x-ray to find out what's going on in there. If the injury is recent, apply ice and rest it. If the pain lasts more than a day, see a podiatrist or orthopedist. Good luck! ...Read more

My knee looks to be out of place and it is very swollen really hurts and have a burning sensation is this an emergency should igo to the hospial?

You need a knee exam: Yes, you should be seen urgently/expeditiously. Your knee is either very swollen causing an appearance of being out of place, or rather displaced by the pressure of the underlying effusion, or your patella (kneecap) is potentially subluxated/dislocated. No matter the actual reason, only a thorough knee exam/evaluation can really answer the question. ...Read more

My right knee has a kinda ache. But more of a burning all day. Maybe a little swollen but can't see anyhing else, what could it be?

Sprain/strain: This sounds like a sprain or strain of the knee causing some inflammation. If you had any traumatic injury, you might also have a torn ligament. However your symptoms seem mild. I recommend daily icing, limited ibuprofen/aleve, and consider a soft knee brace. If not better in 3-4 weeks see your doc. ...Read more

I broke my ankle in 2009 and have now got pin and plate... I went over on it less than an hour, now burning sensation and tender/Swollen. Any ideas?

Probably a sprain: If your ankle fracture was fixed in 2009 the bone should be healed well. It sounds like you twisted the ankle try rest, ice, a compression wrap like an ACE bandage and elevate. You can take an anti inflammatory. They can take 4 weeks or more to heal, do range of motion as much as you can and if not improving see your doctor to get an X-ray ...Read more

OUCH: Nothing you mention sounds inconsistent with a BRUISE / HEMATOMA (collection of blood) as a result of direct trauma. If the pain/swelling/redness is are increasing. Get it checked out. Meantime apply some moist heat to the area (ICE first 24-36hours then heat!)

Don't Tat-Too long.: The differences between an impending infection and an allergic reaction are sometimes hard to distinguish, especially in the early symptoms. It is probably best not to wait too long to have your foot examined. Early treatment could prove to be best for both you, your foot, your tattoo and your tattoo artist. ...Read more
