Are single petechiae spots (not clusters) worrisome? I have 3 tiny (1mm) pink ones - 1 on thigh, 1 on buttock, 1 on lower leg. No bruises

Watchful waiting: What you described is not worrisome, however it is worth watching, i.e, keep an eye on such lesions to see if more are developing. At your next visit to your doctor you should ask her/him to look at the lesions, if any are present at the time. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Shin splints likely: Make sure you are wearing a reasonable running shoe that fits well.

The treatment is to decrease your intensity/distance akin to a dimmer switch to just below the threshold where symptoms develop.

My daughter just had an MRI with 3 small nonspecific white spots on the brain. But no other syms of ms.  She had numbness in legs but was due to hern.Disc shown on lower MRI  ?

Nonspecific: Small bright spots are frequently seen on MRI of the brain, increasing with age. Sometimes there are features that are suggestive of demyelinating disease (ms), but otherwise they are usually considered nonspecific. Anything that affects the tiny blood vessels in the brain can cause these bright spots (e.g., migraines, diabetes, hypertension, vasculitis). See a neurologist if you are worried. ...Read more
