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

My knee has been hurting for a few days now. It hurts when I put pressure on it and when I walk I feel the pain go up to my thigh. ?

Try rest, cold or warm applications, liniment and, if you can take them, NSAIDS like Ibuprofen which may relieve inflammation. See your physician if symptoms persist or worsen. ...Read more

Check with ortho: The spasm in the hamstrings and quads is not unusual. It should clear. The loss of touch could be secondary to a pressure neuropathy that occurred secondary to your positioning during surgery. Usually these clear with time but occasionally they do not. Check with your surgeon. ...Read more

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
