Vascular consult: Hello, Its important you see a vascular surgeon. You will require certain non invasive vascular studies to check the integrity of the vessels in the lower extremity and evaluate you fro intermittent claudication. Taking care of this now will allow for less invasive vascular options and my patients have great prognosis afterwards. Feel better! ...Read more

I am experiencing  hip pain, low back pain, knee pain and pain shooting down the leg. The following also describe me: Back pain, Leg numbness, Leg ...

Multifactorial pain: Without exam/MRI difficult to label your pains. Low back, hip, leg pain and numbness clearly CAN be related to indicate disc problems in the low back with resultant discogenic and radicular pain. Ibuprofen/naproxen/acetaminophen can help some pain. For diagnosis/treatment, you need a lumbar spine MRI and formal evaluation to see if all problems tie together. Treatment possible. Good luck! ...Read more

I am experiencing leg tenderness, leg pain and lower leg swelling.

I am experiencing  leg tenderness, leg pain and lower leg swelling.

Have it checked: Lowe leg tenderness and swelling, particularly when these symptoms are in one leg only, suggests phlebitis or even venous thrombosis. It would be wise to have this checked. In the meantime wrapping the leg in an ace bandage (4 inch) decreased activity and elevate the leg would help. Also one aspirin 3 times a day. Good luck. ...Read more

L5-S1 microdiscectomy Fri for left leg sciatic pain. Calf/foot pain relief w/some thigh/behind knee pain. Pain less AM but sharp pain down left leg into foot w/pain level of 9.5 & hurts sitting/lying.

L5-S1 microdiscectomy Fri for left leg sciatic pain. Calf/foot pain relief w/some thigh/behind knee pain. Pain less AM but sharp pain down left leg into foot w/pain level of 9.5 & hurts sitting/lying.

Microdiskectomy: Give it some time; sometimes simply moving the roots around can upset the lumbar plexus and give you intermittent (even quite severe) pain, although it resolves within a week or two. Getting to the disk requires mobilization of the roots and inflammatory changes from that- or the disk herniation- itself can give this pain. As long as bowel and bladder OK, hopefully this will resolve also. Best! ...Read more

Dad is experiencing leg pain, leg swelling and leg tenderness in right upper leg near main artery, ultrasound is clear but has severe pain can't walk?

Dad is experiencing  leg pain, leg swelling and leg tenderness in right upper leg near main artery, ultrasound is clear but has severe pain can't walk?

Keep looking: Was the ultrasound done to look for a blood clot, or something else. There are multiple conditions that could be causing it, and there are more sensitive tests as well. It can be from the back, from the hip, or still be vascular related. I would say clearly that something is not right and to keep looking. An MRI of both the hip and the lumbar spine may be a consideration. ...Read more

I've had sciatic pains in left leg for a while, pain radiates down back of leg around ankle and down to toe.Also feel pain between groin and leg.

Anatomy: You could be having symptoms secondary to a disc problem over the lower back. An MRI study could reveal extent of problem. Physical therapy might help, yet if there is chronic and substantial nerve root compression, a surgery might be indicated. ...Read more

Pain in right upper thigh slightly abv knee (inner side) and calf with foot numbness on and off and extreme knee pain when sitting, no clots, ideas?

Pain in right upper thigh slightly abv knee (inner side) and calf with foot numbness on and off and extreme knee pain when sitting, no clots, ideas?

Knee, hip, back: If the thigh problem is immediately above the knee this could be a knee problem (cartilage, bakers cyst, joint problem). Knee pain rarely radiates up the leg. Anything higher up is unlikely to be knee. This could also be referred pain from the hip or back. A good physical examination by someone experienced with these problems should give you the answer. ...Read more

Intermittent pain on top of foot near ankle when walking. Cramping severe pain with foot elevated. Female, moderate exerciser, non-smoker. Thoughts?

Intermittent pain on top of foot near ankle when walking. Cramping severe pain with foot elevated. Female, moderate exerciser, non-smoker. Thoughts?

Positional.: Where is the cramping and severe pain located when the foot id elevated. Elevation should relieve most problems. The fact that pain and cramping increase with elevation could indicate a problem with under perfusion of tissues with blood. To remove all doubt, have you foot evaluated to consider all possibilities. ...Read more
