They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more

I'm taking tamoxifen and am an avid runner. (currently training for a half-marathon).  Just recently I have been having pain in my right hip area.  What is the diff. Between bone and muscle pain?

Bone vs. muscle pain: Muscle pain is far more common. It tends to cause pain during or after activity & is more likely to be affected by position. Bone pain feels deeper, more severe & may be constant. Tamoxifen can cause bone, joint or muscle pain. It is usually generalized or symmetric rather than just one joint. Runners can get bursitis or iliotibial band symptoms. Call your doctor if your symptoms worsen. ...Read more

Slight pain above right hip it feels like a pulled muscle. Slight pain comes then it goes away. Then it will come back. I don't do drugs or drink?

Hard to say: True hip pain is localized to the groin. In this area it is either your hip itself or could have a hernia. Other causes would be a pull or strain to one of your hip flexors. If it responds to rest and ice it is likely muscular and should improve. If pain persists you may want to have it evaluated. ...Read more

Sprain: A sprain of a muscle or ligament likely occured. This may take a week or more to heal. Rest and, if you can take them, NSAIDS like ibuprofen or Aleve (naproxen) may help to reduce any associated inflammation.

Exercise or sport?: This sounds like a pulled muscle, tendon, or ligament. Occasionally a tiny piece of bone can be displaced with certain activities with very strong hip and leg muscles. You should first apply warm compresses or heating pad and take Tylenol (acetaminophen) or very low dose NSAID; you can apply Arnica gel or cream and of course avoid any motion or activity that increases pain. See a doc if not better in 3 days. ...Read more

I have pain on my right hip. It feels like muscles inside. It gets more painful after prolonged seating period.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you. From what you described, regular exercise may help by toning up the muscles. Any exercise, including walking will do.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

38 yr-old w/ hemorrhoid per anoscopy. Chronic low back and right hip pain, stand at work. Consistently flat stool; could this be from muscle tension?

38 yr-old w/ hemorrhoid per anoscopy. Chronic low back and right hip pain, stand at work. Consistently flat stool; could this be from muscle tension?

Yes and maybe: Certainly, standing for a long period, such as at work, can result from muscle strain and be a factor in chronic low back & hip pain. Stretching/strengthening exercises should help. But "flat stool" needs more investigation in my view; hemorrhoids by themselves should not be sufficient to cause. I would ask doctor for more testing, probably flex sig or colonosocpy, to evaluate. Good luck:) ...Read more

I have been taking a statin drug x 2 months. Started having severe joint and muscle pain especially in knees and hip. Should I discontinue use? It is interfering with daily worouts and normal activities.

I have been taking a statin drug x 2 months. Started having severe joint and muscle pain especially in knees and hip.  Should I discontinue use? It is interfering with daily worouts and normal activities.

Contact your doc: You should contact your physician. Statins can cause muscle pain and weakness, however sometimes changing medication or lowering the dose can still allow you to get the cholesterol lowering benefit of the medication while avoiding the side effects. Your physician will also discuss other possibilities for your pain to ensure it is indeed the medication and not another cause, such as your workouts. ...Read more
