Pictures Of Leg Sores That Won't Heal
I have an abscess on my leg and now is a big hole do I need to go get checked in there a way to send you a picture?
Abscess?: I am afraid a picture of your wound will not help you. If the wound is not healing, you need to see a physician to diagnose its cause and formulate a treatment plan to heal it. A non-healing wound can be due to a serious problem. Get help at an ER or physician's office as soon as possible. Good luck. ...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
