Can driving 8 hours cause severe calve pain in right leg even if your calcium is normalCausing me to fall up a step? Now knee is purple& painful!

Muscle twitches?: Some irritation to a muscle, nerve, or part of a nerve that goes to certain muscle fibers may cause those fibers to twitch. Such twitching is usually for a few hours or a day, and only once in a while. In those cases, doctors and patients usually don't spend time looking for a cause. But, if symptoms are frequent, or recurrent, a primary doctor and neurologist can evaluate and look for the cause. ...Read more

10 year old son had brief sharp pain in chest. Afterwards started to have pain in right leg below knee. He says it is better when rests for a period.

Not likely serious: A 10 year old with a brief chest pain and a pain afterward in the right leg below the knee is not likely to have anything serious like a blood clot traveling to the lung unless he has been at bed rest or immobilized for several days or had recent surgery.**But if he's still having leg pain and points to his calf, or if he's significantly more tender in that calf than the other>go to ER to be safe. ...Read more

Can gout cause sciatic like pain. I have 6.5 uric acid level. Have pain in right leg. Right knee and lower back pain.

Gout and Sciatica?: This would be quite rare. Being that gout is a joint based inflammatory condition, this is highly unlikely. Keep working on getting that UA level under 6 though. Sciatica can be successfully treated though with icing, stretching, physical therapy and even anti-inflammatories (motrin, naprosyn, (naproxen) etc.). ...Read more

My right leg caves inward at my knee. When standing I notice I can flex my left vmo but not my right one. What is happening with the right?

My right leg caves inward at my knee. When standing I notice I can flex my left vmo but not my right one. What is happening with the right?

Genu valgus?: I would need to gather more information, such as growth and development history, onset of deformity, its progression, and history of trauma or fracture. There aren't many things that would cause one side only to be affected. A physeal fracture could cause it, but the deformity would have been noticed at a younger age. Metabolic disease or skeletal dysplasia would cause both sides to be involved. ...Read more
