Why are my thighs burning when I do stairs. I walk and do stretches foe exercise and normally don't feel this way?

Conditioning: Burning muscles usually happen from lack of blood or fitness. You might want to see a podiatrist or even your primary doctor to have your lower extremity pulses checked. If these are normal, it may be as simple as poor conditioning. Climbing stairs taxes the quadriceps much more than walking on level ground. Spinal nerve impingement can also cause pain, but it usually isn't described as burning. ...Read more

What are some ways you can cure or treat a bed sore and will the treatment cause pain in the buttocks region?

What are some ways you can cure or treat a bed sore and will the treatment cause pain in the buttocks region?

Basic treatment: Bedsores are caused by unrelieved pressure on the soft tissues overlying a bony area. The key is to get them off and keep them off the area to allow healing. Once damaged, the tissues heal through inflammation which is the bodies way to get fresh healing blood to the injured area.As the damaged nerves heal, they let you know by causing pain which is a good sign. Motrin and advil (ibuprofen) slow down healing. ...Read more
