As : As with most pain conditions, there can be a variety of potential problems that can cause the pain that you are describing. It is difficult to diagnose with the short description given and without a proper physical examination. Pain is often a sign of inflammation. Inflammation often occurs when something is irritated. Irritation occurs from a variety of different things. If the pain does not improve, you should see someone who is qualified to make an appropriate diagnosis. This may be nerve related, spine related, or something else. As always, i would highly suggest you do your research when seeking medical help. Find a physician who meets, or even better, exceeds the basic qualifications to practice in their specific field or sub-specialty. ...Read more

My entire left leg is swollen, while my right leg isn't. When i run, my left ankle/shin burns, but not like shin splints. What could be wrong?

Several posibilities: This could be infection with redness, heat, pain, and swelling. This could be a blood clot with one-sided leg pain and swelling. It is not normal for an otherwise healthy young person to have either of these conditions, but both should be addressed soon. Have them checked out by your fp, because many things may cause burning swelling discomfort! ...Read more

My son has 2nd degree burn and has wound on his left leg, he got burn last Tuesday. Can he swim in the sea on Sunday?

My son has 2nd degree burn and has wound on his left leg, he got burn last Tuesday. Can he swim in the sea on Sunday?

Probably yes: If there is a blister that has not popped, or if it has popped and the skin beneath is dried. If not, the salt will hurt and he will let you know! But as long as the sea water is fresh and he does not complain, it is probably fine. Salt water is often used to clean burns, but it does not have quite as much salt. ...Read more

I have had red round burn looking sores on my left leg , they went away and caused scars.Ms & mvp --they are back an my neuro asked me how i got a burn?

Probably not related: Ms primarily effects the central nervous system and most commonly results in motor dysfunction whereas peripheral sensory neuropathy is more commonly associated with other co editions or disease such as diabetes. Numbness could result in unrecognized injury.If this is a recurring lesion, i would suggest a possible biopsy to exclude other possible problems. ...Read more

I had a vaginal hysterectomy a month ago.I removed my womb but not ovaries. Now my left leg goes numb, burn, tingly feeling. Is that normal?

I had a vaginal hysterectomy a month ago.I removed my womb but not ovaries. Now my left leg goes numb, burn, tingly feeling. Is that normal?

Yes, but: Sometimes nerves are stretched or pinched in the course of surgery. Since we can't see those nerves , we can only try to avoid any pressure that woul lead to your symptoms. If the numbness doesn't go away in another month, contact your surgeon for a careful neurologic exam. Tingling can sometimes be a normal feeling as nerves heal (like when you cross your legs, and the lower leg goes numb). ...Read more
