Has stage 2 Parkinson disease. Fell from sofa 2 weeks ago and hence has trouble walking. Experienced severe pain in leg today. Cant walk since then.

Let's get it checked: Severe pain that develops after an injury event two weeks ago may herald progression of a nondisplaced fracture. If you're having trouble, I would advise an evaluation right away. At the very least, x-ray should be obtained of your painful leg. ...Read more

Possible Fracture: Sounds like it could be a contusion or acute plantar fasciitis. If an x-ray was done at the urgent care center, then a fracture would have been determined. If not, go get one. I had a patient recently who fractured his foot on the edge of a stair. Meanwhile, apply ice/cold pack 2-3 times per day for 30 minutes at a time, and keep the foot elevated. MRI might be needed if there's no improvement. ...Read more

I have a severe pain in my left leg when I walk. Is there a natural therapy for this?

Yes: If what you describe is claudication, then yes. Regular supervised exercise (walking) has been shown to increase the distance claudicants can walk before pain sets in.

When i walk on my right leg I have severe pain under lower rib cage in backom left side?

I'd suggest you see a physician to find the source. Meanwhile, look up stretches for the quadratus lumborum online. Your doc can help sort out what started the pain and treat the pain and the underlying problem. ...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

Severe pain in lower back, leg & buttocks. Can't sit down or walk up stairs. Pain even too intense to walk. Could this be Sciatica or worse?

Yes: Yes, "sciatica" describes the irritation of a nerve in the back that then causes pain that runs down the buttocks into the leg. If it does not improve, or if it is associated with numbness, weakness, or bowel/ bladder problems I would be seen. On the other hand, many cases can resolve on their own as well. ...Read more

If not inflammatory, the pain pattern suggests sacroiliac joint (sij) dysfunction, which cannot be seen on ct and MRI scans nor any other imaging study, as reported in the medical literature. Diagnosis of sij disorder is done by means of a fluroscopic guided diagnostic block of the sij. ...Read more
