More info: Need better history. How did you "injure" your foot. Did you land on the ball of your foot? If pain is radiating from your toes up the leg, you may have compressed a nerve in the foot (neuroma). Have to rule out osseous (bone) injury or fracture but need more info from patient. ...Read more

MD conference: A medical work up doesn't always provide a direct answer - it more often tells you what ISN'T going on. It sounds like you don't understand what your MD is thinking. Here's a scientific checklist article. I suggest you print it out and sit down with the treating MD and review your concerns - ask for clarification on your child's tests. Good luck!

Radiographs are mandatory and advanced imaging may be necessary. ...Read more

I am on medication 'flupirtine and levipride 50' but since the day I took it, the numbness in my legs is increasing day by day. Now unable to even walk.

I am on medication 'flupirtine and levipride 50' but since the day I took it, the numbness in my legs is increasing day by day. Now unable to even walk.

Check potassium: Flupirtine is unique among pain killers in that it works by opening potassium channels. It is not marketed in the US so I have no experience using it. Numbness or parasthesias in the legs followed by rapidly progressive paralysis may be due to AIDP (Guillain Barre) so its important that you have a neurological assessment immediately. ...Read more

Have it looked at: Any persistent mass or lump that does not belong on the skin is worthwhile showing to a doctor. If it is something harmless, it might be something that could be removed in the office. If found early, a skin cancer can be removed before it spreads. Whatever you do, do not try to remove it yourself. ...Read more

I went kayaking Saturday and got the most severe sunburn of my life on my legs. It's Wednesday now and STILL almost unable to walk due to pain. Advice?

Not much...: Unfortunately, there's not much you can do. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen or naproxen can help control pain. Potent steroid creams (by prescription) sometimes are tried, but usually are not helpful. If very severe, e, g. if you develop bullae (giant blisters), for sure see a doctor or urgent care clinic ASAP. The good news is that pain should improve very soon. ...Read more

One step at a time: You lost a lot of muscle mass after 11 days of bedrest. It will take time to bulid it up again. Ask for some physical therapy to work with you to retrain your muscles. You can also do exercises in bed to maintain range of motion and start to build up your endurance again. ...Read more

Several: You may have reherniated the disc to the left side which is a 5% risk or you are developing or developed a hematoma or fluid collection post op placing pressure on that side which unlike the right side still has a "roof"! or covering on it that may not allow for any release. There are other possible reasons so you should discuss this with your surgeon. ...Read more

Exercises: I assume you mean you are having difficulty bending your knee? If so, it is very important to slowly start bending the knee and straightening it as tolerated but pushing through any mild to moderate discomfort to increase the range of motion at the knee. Slowly increase how much you stretch the muscles and ligaments/tendons in the knee (and ankle if problematic) over weeks time... ...Read more

Patient is unable to sit and walk due to severe pain on lateral side of leg. What may b the diagnosis? Patients spinal xray is normal

Need an exam: By someone who is knowledgeable about pain, such as a physiatrist. The pelvis, buttock, hip, knee, ankle and everything in between needs to be examined, not just the spine. Neurologic testing needs to be done. Further studies (CT, MRI) of the spine may be warranted Don't let the examining doctor off without an explanation as this is interfering with activities of daily living. Good luck. ...Read more
