My upper thigh muscles have been seizing or pulling when I sprint, why is this?

Muscle cramp: Muscles cramp for a variety of reasons, but once you have one its hard to get rid of it. Make sure that you are stretching properly and working on conditioning. Hydrate during exercise with an electrolyte rich sports drink. Once you have cramp, try stretching it out and massaging the muscle to make it go away. ...Read more

Pain in both thighs fielding a ground ball in softball pain excruciating! i can't turn my head any direction without feeling pain. Did i pull a muscle?

Pain in both thighs fielding a ground ball in softball pain excruciating! i can't turn my head any direction without feeling pain. Did i pull a muscle?

Varies: If it is both legs, it would seem a little unlikely to have occurred simultaneously. Another possibility is it is from your back. People with back injuries can have pain running into the legs and this pain is characteristically worse with motion on the head/neck, which increases the pressure in the spinal canal. ...Read more

Outer thigh pain, numbness, tingling, burning. Tender to touch. Pull in muscle at beginning of year, deep laceration up the thigh when younger.

Nerve pain : This sounds like nerve pain. However because there is tenderness to touch there could be some inflammation or infection going on as well. I would recommend you visit your doctor for a proper examination and possibly X Rays or ultrasound of the Lowry back , hips and thigh ...Read more

I wake up almost every night from pulling my calf muscles and having horrible muscle spasms to follow then can't walk on the leg?

Not fun: You probably want to have that looked into. A good exam, some labs are in order to start with. Muscle cramps are no fun. Its scary to be awakened by them. You might want to to some gentle stretching exercises about 1 hour before bedtime and avoid drinking a lot of water just before bedtime. Its probably a good idea to avoid carbonated beverages if possible. ...Read more

Strong muscle pain below nee back of leg.feels like its been strained.haven't exercise.woke up like this.feels like its pulling when i walk.

Be seen: If you did not injure it, I would be seen. Sciatica is a fairly common cause and does not require having had an injury. The concern, though, is it could be a blood clot which is potentially life threatening, so I would be seen to rule this out. ...Read more

Coming and going mild burning pain in leg and very mild feeling of pulling a muscle. Would a DVT be most likely red and swollen?

Coming and going mild burning pain in leg and very mild feeling of pulling a muscle. Would a DVT be most likely red and swollen?

Not necessarily: A calf with a DVT can be red and swollen but it certainly doesn't have to be. Redness with dvts is actually fairly uncommon. Swelling and pain is more typical but sometimes you might only have one or the other or neither. If you have concerns that you might have a dvt, you should get it checked out. ...Read more

I have a burning sensation in my leg when i stretch. Could this be a muscle pull?

Muscle or nerve: Muscle 'pulls' or strains can be irritated when you stretch or use the muscle. Tight muscles can also pull on the local nerves causing burning with stretch. Other times, nerve irritation can cause burning when the leg is pulled. A physiatrist or doctor of physical medicine and rehabilitation can help determine the cause and recommend treatment. ...Read more

My father pain when he walks ,he is also not able to pull his leg easily.he has pain in muscles and after a longwalk he has too much pains in muscles?

The most worrisome: cause of extremity/leg pain with walking is peripheral vascular disease. This occurs when the arteries supplying the legs/leg muscles are diseased with plaque obstructions from atherosclerosis...the same disease process that causes heart attacks and strokes. Sometimes similar symptoms can be caused by spinal problems...compression of nerves by spinal stenosis. Only a exam/tests by Doc can diagnose ...Read more

All leg muscles shake, tug , push, pull, is it my gad or have I reached tolerance after 15 years on diazepam ?

All leg muscles shake,  tug , push, pull,  is it my gad or have I reached tolerance after 15 years on diazepam  ?

Diazepam: Sounds like you need a complete physical from your physician first to rule out organic cause,(there could be other physical causes) but 15 years on diazepam will produce tolerance to the point where you may only be getting a placebo effect--but a placebo effect is still an effect so any planned taper needs to be carefully planned. I teach sleep classes and have med taper handouts for clients ...Read more
