Pain in my left arm and left leg in the evening after work and after I get up in the morning. Feeling tired in the mornings. How can this go away?

1st Rule out angina!: I'd have your internist evaluate you for the possibility of angina. Sometimes the narrowing of coronary arteries, from whatever reason, can lead to ischemia of heart muscle and a diffuse, difficult-to-pinpoint, aching pain can radiate in this distribution. The risk of this goes up with a positive family history for heart disease, or if you have elevated cholesterol or triglyceride; then proceed... ...Read more

I have a muscle ache at the top of my left leg, especially when tired. I am on Flecainide and Warfarin. Is this serious?

I have a muscle ache at the top of my left leg, especially when tired. I am on Flecainide and Warfarin. Is this serious?

Uncertain: You need to discuss this with your physician. The ache may be related to what is in the top of the leg. If it is the thigh you have muscles, nerves, vessels, and bone - and you could be bleeding since you are on warfarin. If it is the top of the lower leg - similar structures are there. The thigh bone can be affected differently than the low leg bone. ...Read more

I experience a severe pain in the whole left leg from below the hip button till the foot. The pain is from the bag of leg like fatigue and screwing.?

Sounds like sciatica: Pain radiating down the back of the leg from the hip to the knee is typically caused by sciatica. This is an inflammation of the sciatic nerve caused by something irritating it where it comes out of the spine (e.g. Herniated disc) or where the nerve passes behind the hip (e.g. The piriformis muscle). Treatment is bedrest, warm heat, gentle stretching, and anti-inflammatory medication. ...Read more

Several very localized, intermitent, deep pains in left leg from groin to foot. Lumbar MRI clear. Emg clear. Neuro ruled out sciatica. Tired of pain.

A few thots: Have you had a NIVA venous study of leg just to R/O thrombophlebitis? Did the EMG test for problems within the lumbosacral plexus, such as pyriformis syndrome. Was a triple phase bone scan considered as there may be autonomic dysfnctn, such as CRPS? Perhaps if no other answer, get a QSART study. This can be diagnosed, and likely needs further consideration. Maybe additional opinions? ...Read more

For 1yr I have felt tired, short of breath, pain in chest/back on mid/right, migraines, sore joints, leg swelling/left leg. Every test in the world done but no answers. What should I do? No quality of life.

Symptoms: I am sorry to hear about your struggle. Unfortunately, you're not alone. In that case, psychological issues should be ruled out (stress, depression, etc.). Also, strange as it is, I believe that there may be some toxic substances you are exposed to in the food you eat especially if it is full of preservatives, additives, gmos, etc. It may be worthwhile to go more organic. ...Read more

I have a knot on the lower left side of my back below kidney. It don't hurt all the time, buy when it does its bad and pain shoots down my left leg.

Complex Pain Synd.: The knot and the pain are probably not related. The knot maybe a lump of fatty tissue called a lipoma. Your doc should give you clear answers. The pain is myofascial and the advil (ibuprofen) and opiates are mucking up your gut and your natural healing process. See my notes. Start a wellness program, add in vits and minerals, start acupuncture, get your wellness team together and you have to be the qb! ...Read more

Lump on the leg: Hello and welcome to HealthTap,

Is it mobile? Or attached to over lying skin? What about the color of the overlying skin? It may be a ganglionic cyst or vascular enlargement/ verciose vein, could also be a Lipoma (less likely).

My 12 year old son's lower left leg really stated bothering him. He says it itches on the inside and feels like it's having spaziums?

Twitches: These may be muscular contractions or irritability of a nerve in the thigh. If other areas of the body also have spasms, we check for magnesium or calcium deficiencies. A neurologist is best qualified to evaluate these types of symptoms. If the symptoms remain localized to the inner leg only, a systemic problem is unlikely. ...Read more
