For the past month I have had tenderness in my left arm and last night i had a sudden swelling of the elbow which feels warm to the touch.

Bursitis: Sounds like you may have an elbow bursitis - olecranon bursitis. This can cause swelling at the tip of the elbow that can sometimes reach the size of a lemon. If it becomes infected, redness and pain will develop. I suggest you see your doc immediately. She may aspirate (take fluid out with a needle) the swollen area, start you on antibiotics, recommend a sling or.......Even surgery. Good luck. ...Read more

My left thigh has felt numb for 1-2 weeks now and there is a lingering pain in the back of my leg what should I do?

Nerve: This suggests a pinched nerve as it enters the leg but also can be related to impingement of a nerve root up in the spinal area by a bulging or herniated disc.

Sciatica: A problem with either blood vessels or nerve could cause your symptoms however, at your age this is most likely related to your back and the sciatic nerve. The cause of irritation to the sciatic nerve is either a disc pressing on a portion of the nerve or narrowing of an area where the nerve comes out. If this continues, you should see an M.D. Avoid lifting, pushing, pulling anything heavy. ...Read more

Infection?: It should be evaluated. It is possible that it is cellulitis (an infection of the skin), particularly since it gets warm to the touch. If the area is red, it is even more likely to be an infection and need medication. If there had been a recent injury to the area, it could be a deep muscle bruise, hematoma, etc. Have your doctor take a look at it. ...Read more

Have it checked: You may have injured your ankle and the swelling from the injury may be impinging on a nerve which may be the cause of the numbness. The injury may have been something physical, but since you mentioned working in the garden, you may have also been bitten. Go to the doctor and have it examined. ...Read more
