44 year-old female with a history of DVT and stroke; on Warfarin daily now with right leg swelling and bilateral leg pain.....?

44 year-old female with a history of DVT and stroke; on Warfarin daily now with right leg swelling and bilateral leg pain.....?

Need good ultrasound study and a cardiac echo: Was there a reason found for the stroke? A clot in the leg may travel to the lung, but should not normally be able to get to the brain. The most likely reason it did is a defect in the heart. An echocardiogram will help sort the heart out, and can guide a repair. A good ultrasound of the legs is necessary to see if there is a recurrent clot. If not, another consideration is Post-Thrombotic Syndrome - failure o the valves in the leg veins from scarring after DVT. Patients with DVT need to wear compression hose daily for at least 2 yrs after DVT to minimize the risk of PTS. ...Read more

Was taking Lyrica @ 600mg per day for around two years for idiopathic leg pain. Reduced down as leg pain gone but since tapering off have had pain in forearms and hands. Finished Lyrica two days ago and now in a lot of pain. (Arms) Could this be wd?

Suggestions: Am rather unclear as to validity of term "idiopathic leg pain", as there is always a cause. Fact that the Lyrica (pregabalin) helped suggests your correct diagnosis is a peripheral neuropathy, which needs evaluation. Highly recommend a second opinion. Suspect you are correct about your Lyrica (pregabalin). ...Read more

29 month old toddler has been complaining of arm, wrist &leg pain for the last 2 months. She's still active but doesn't like to be touched what's wrong?

Joint pains?: You need to have your toddler thoroughly examined to find out the cause of her aches and pains. If this is associated with warm and swollen joint areas, fever, with some + blood tests and X-rays, I could make a diagnosis of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, but this could just as easily be an active toddler that is a bit clumsy and bumps into things.

I am wondering if you can give me any insight into why I am experiencing these symptoms: all on the left side of my body; shoulder, elbow, arm, groin, and leg pain. Thanks!

Imbalance: When the body is too asymmetrical, you may suffer pain all over that side of the body. Not having examined you, the first thing you need to find out is whether one of your legs is way shorter than the other. Another aspect to consider is that when one of joints is inflamed, one's posture is also changed and in turn may lead to pain to the rest of the joints on that side of the body. ...Read more
