I have this pain in my right upper thigh but the pain increases badly when I try to walk. I can barly put pressure on it. What should I do?

Don't ignore it: If you've had any recent workouts or trauma it could be a muscular source of pain. Damage to ligaments or tendons could also cause some discomfort that worsens with weight-bearing. Rest, heat or ice, over-the-counter pain control medications, or compression dressings (an ace bandage) are things that could be tried. If the symptoms do not improve in 3 to 5 days x-rays should be considered by your doctor. ...Read more

Unlikely: Honestly, we don't have great treatments for cellulite. Certain new laser treatments can help cellulite. But most of the products & creams you see offered for sale are pretty much worthless. Massage will only have a temporary effect, at best. Sorry. ...Read more

Knee pain: If you have no history of an injury such as a sprain or contusion, there may be some inflammatory process present.

What could cause extremely sensitive skin/parts of my body--sharp pain in many places especially thighs/ribs when specific/light pressure is applied?

Diffuse pains: Pains that occur all over the body tend to be a result of some systemic disorder. That is, something that affects your entire system, be it hormones, vitamins, nutritional, or neurological.

The point tenderness could be a sign of something like fibromyalgia, but would be unusual to get trigger points in the rib region.

General medical workup for inflammatory disorders may be in order. ...Read more

Had a c-section 2 weeks ago, my right outer thigh has been completely numb ever since. Doesn't tingle, feels some pressure. Should I feel worried?

Observe: The numbness may be due to tissue edema and compression during pregnancy. You will have to observe and wait for a few more weeks to see if it improves. If the C-Section scar extends far laterally, it is possible that the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve was injured.
This would give you lateral thigh numbess. ...Read more

I have sudden itching inside both thighs usually on the top/outside. No rash; the itch sometimes bruises regardless of pressure. Yikes or maybe not?

No easy answer: This suggests a type of urticaria without the hives. The bruising suggests vascular instability such as vasculitis or uticarial vasculitis. You will need to see yur physicaisn and see if there is more detailed history. Another option is to see a dermatologist and consider a biopsy of the brusing areas. The outside of the thigh could suggest a pressure type of urticaria but again no rash, ie hives ...Read more

Tingling pressure&some pain on R side of hip→groin→1/2 upper thigh. Is this from Hyper Lordosis?

Spinal curvature: Hyperlordosis or "swayback" is when the lower back has an increased curvature. This alone does not usually cause symptoms.

sun/wind burn on back of calves/thighs. When I stand, there's a lot of intense pressure around the burned areas. Joints also in bad pain. Help?

Sunburn treatment: Aspirin or Ibuprofen will help with the pain and reduce some of the inflammation caused by this 'radiation' injury-because that's really what a sun burn is. You can also get an aloe plant and squeeze the gel like stuff on the affected areas. Cool showers and oatmeal baths might help as well. Hopefully this is the last sunburn of your life because it can damage skin (wrinkles) and lead 2skin cancer ...Read more
