Should I be worried that or the last three days I've had extreme tenderness and soreness all along my waist line for no known reason? No visual marks

I believe it's just: Musculoskeletal pain. Try to take otc tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin and apply warm packs. If u don't feel better, tell your boyfriend to give u a massage or see your dr. (ask for a lollipop after the clinic visit. The sugar in it may help alleviate the pain. Just a thought!). ...Read more

I have a large bump or mass just above my right thigh on the waist line. Almost the size of my fist. No pain, only sore if I poke at it a lot?

I have a large bump or mass just above my right thigh on the waist line. Almost the size of my fist. No pain, only sore if I poke at it a lot?

Likely a lipoma: Usually a mass like this which is that size and non tender represents a lipoma, a fatty benign tumor. For safety this should be evaluated by your physician. If a lipoma, it doesn't need to be removed unless it grows or becomes painful. For cosmetic purposes it can be removed at any time. Try to leave it alone and not to poke at it because they can become inflamed and tender. Good luck. ...Read more

My tall 15 y.o. son gets sore ankles after running/playing soccer. He also leans forward from his waist to accelerate when runnng. What should we do?

The feet/an less-: -need evaluation. The leaning forward in acceleration is good form. Just watch sprinter in an Olympic Games or a college track meet. The first 5 or so steps are very much bent @the waist & then they slowly get to an upright position. This allows for a fast start. ...Read more

Listen to your body: A high ck is a sign of rhabdomyolysis, sometimes to alcohol or dehydration. See a physician who will check for nutrient deficiencies like zinc, toxic exposures, or genetic defects. Rest, eat 6 equal healthy meals with a good carb source at each meal like quinoa or spelt which are both anti-inflammatory, breathe and relax, just walk to improve circulation, and get a good night sleep. ...Read more

My waist feels very tight and tender, almost painful if I push on it. It gets worse after eating. It also makes it very hard to have an erection.

My waist feels very tight and tender, almost painful if I push on it. It gets worse after eating. It also makes it very hard to have an erection.

No pun intended: "very hard to have an erection"

It's ironic.

First, you should probably have your stomach area/diet checked out. There are a number of problems you could have with digestion etc.

Second, don't worry about the erection. You're likely to be fine after the First problem is figured out since it is likely just the pain causing havoc. ...Read more
