Eye or Sinus: Does your eye look irritated or red, especially underneath the upper eyelid? If so, you may have a type of inflammatory surface reaction called superior limbic keratitis. If the eye looks normal, then the problem may be an inflamed eye muscle (orbital myositis), or sinus infection (there are sinuses on all sides of the eye socket except the outer side, and sinus pain can feel like eye pain) ...Read more

How can I treat and healing time for leg abrasion?

How can I treat and healing time for leg abrasion?

Simple Care: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, Hibiclens, Betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation (red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (Motrin, Advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read more

All my bloods came back fine also a full blood picture normal? Wat else cud be makin my legs sore? They have been like this since after my 3rd child?

Possibly nerves: Pinched lumbar nerves can cause pain that runs down through the legs. Even simple deconditioning could cause leg soreness - you may want to try putting yourself on a simple exercise program (i.e. Walking 2 - 3 times a day) and see if that helps. I would recommend that you see an orthopedist for an evaluation if your symptoms remain troublesome. ...Read more

Had a knee X-ray and the machine seemed to be continuously noisy. Worried that the tech took continuous pictures by accident. Is that possible?

Only one image: On a conventional x ray machine, to make an x ray beam electrons hit an "anode" in one spot. This heats it. To reduce the point of heat, the anode spins before, during and just after the exposure. This is likely what you heard.
To take many conventional images one after another you need a different machine, usually a fluoroscope. ...Read more

Knee scope done. Dr took picture of knee cap. This showed that it was white and brown. Dr said brown part was arthritic change. Does this sound right?

Bare bone arthritis: Yes. Cartilage is usually white. When the cartilage under parts of the knee cap wears out completely, you are stuck with bare bone. The bare bone spots usually appear yellowish brown in color. Arthritis is the absence of cartilage covering the bone in this situation. If you still have knee cap pain after the scope, you may benefit from viscosupplementation injections to improve the pain. ...Read more
