I am experiencing shaking hands or tremor, lightheadedness (worsened by: prolonged standing) and leg tingling. & can hear my own heart beat?

Anxiety symptoms: My first guess is that you are anxious. And you are breathing fast during the spells which makes you blow off CO2 and can lead to the symptoms you describe especially the tingling. Try rebreathing into a paper bag so CO2 returns to normal for a few minutes. If this helps bingo. Discuss with your Dr. ...Read more

I am experiencing a deep pain in my left quad while running & working out. Long distances and deep bends/stretches increase the pain. There is weakness too. Can't figure out what it is. Any ideas?

Connective/muscular: Two possibilities; muscle tear, strained tendon. Pain near a joint more likely connective. Anti-inflammatories or otc pain relievers may be useful, reduced activity likely more effective. Also, onset (fast/slow) may also suggest muscle or connective respectively. If pain in calf when toes extended upwards, a more serious condition may be present. Good color and warmth in toes also good sign. ...Read more

I fractured my tibia then had a sprain a few months later, how long will my leg feel weak?

Possibly 1+ yrs: Depending on the severity of your fracture, recovery from trauma such as a long bone fracture can take upwards of 1 year, possibly 2. As you are healing your fracture, your activities are likely limited. As a result, you're surrounding musculature may become deconditioned. It takes a long time to build back that endurance and strength. ...Read more

You need and exam: Clearly, something has changed in you at least with respect with the strength in one limb and since it hasn't gotten any better over a long period you should have it looked it by a doctor. I am also concerned about the increased serum creatinine....but have you tried drinking water in generous amounts? Sometimes, a person gets a bit dehyrated and those numbers bump a bit. ...Read more

Possibly: An emg/ncv test is not 100 percent sensitive for sciatica, so it could be coming from the irritation of a nerve in the back causing symptoms in the leg ("sciatica"), but there are other potential causes as well. An MRI of the lumbar spine would show if there is any nerve impingement that correlates with your symptoms. Continue being seen for further work up. ...Read more

Question?: Your description does not give enough information nor does it say what you are worried or asking about. If your boyfriend's behavior is causing you concern, the best advice is to talk to him about it. There are quite a number of things that could be going on including normal behavior. When you say he does not "understand people" are we talking hearing loss, cognitive problems, or language? ...Read more
