• Random stabbing leg pain?

    So I was walking around my house fine and I sat down to relax. Suddenly when I went to get up I fell with this shooting pain in my leg.

    So I was walking around my house fine and I sat down to relax. Suddenly when I went to get up I fell with this shooting pain in my leg. I’m 16 and sometimes I get weird pains especially in my knees and back but never this bad. I’m able to move but it feels like someone is jabbing at my whole leg with a knife and the pain is going to make me black out if I keep walking. Does anyone know what this might be? Sorry if anything is spelled wrong I hate typing

  • Is it bad to use night-time pain killers to sleep?

    I have night-time painkillers with a sleeping aid in them and they seem to work effectively as I had a great night sleep last night. Would doing this often be dangerous in any way to my health? They are a shelf bought store brand kind.

  • What's wrong with my ankle?

    Best answer: Good chance that it's tendonitis (inflamed tendon) . . . cold compresses (like ice in a plastic bag) usually help most - sometimes alternate cold & hot compresses. Ibuprofen (Advil) should relieve pain . . . consider an athletic compression sleeve for ankle or wrap in elastic bandage . . . "taking it easy", compresses & Advil should see relief in 2 to 3 weeks - if not, see doctor/podiatrist. You may need different shoes or orthotics. If there were a fracture to a bone, you would know it: pain would be extreme and you probably wouldn't be able to walk on it at all.

  • Do you think I could possibly have a tape worm? My hands are and feet are tingly, I have been feeling clumsy, and I have non stop headaches.?

    Best answer: NO. Why would you even think that? Those symptoms have absolutely nothing to do with worms.
    .
    OTOH, maybe you have a brain-eating amoeba. Uh oh, better check yourself into the hospital before some other horrible parasite tries to devour your body.

  • I was in a car accident and have been seeing a physical therapist but she seems skeptical of my injuries should I confront her?

    I was in a bad accident my car was hit head on on the highway while I was traveling 55 mph a driver was texting and driving, lost control of her vehicle and spun out hitting several cars including my car head on on the drivers side and I was driving.

    I was in a bad accident my car was hit head on on the highway while I was traveling 55 mph a driver was texting and driving, lost control of her vehicle and spun out hitting several cars including my car head on on the drivers side and I was driving. My right arm hurts badly and the pain has increased with physical therapy. My shoulder burns, it hurts to turn my body or my head to the right, my shoulder hurt so bad I wanted to go to the ER the other day because the pain was unmanageable. I told my physical therapist and the look on her face, her body language and her tone of voice seemed dismissive as if I was making this up...... I'm in pain, I'm not trying to get pain medications, I've never even asked and I've never had a problem with medication. I'm quite the opposite and prefer to treat naturally. What should I do? Find a new therapist?

    So I've been dealing with constipation for a few months, I went back to normal for a few weeks and now its' bad again I can go... but my BMs are very, very small. I've tried glycerin suppositories and a mineral enema and that has not worked at all. I have abdominal pain, which is dull and not constant, but definitely often enough to be worrisome. I also just feel a constant fullness. I'm not really nauseous, and I get hungry, but I definitely am worried about putting food into my body if it's not going to come out... I am just trying not to eat bread or things like that. Went to the doctor two days ago, and he prescribed Dulcolax, which he said to take for 30 day. He also told me of course to drink plenty of water. He didn't feel my stomach or anything, but it feels soft to me. I have also started taking miralax, and been drinking prunejuice. been doing this for a day. Admittedly, while I am quite active, I had been eating too many carbs and just eating poorly in general. And probably not enough water, while also being stressed out which I know doesn't help. I am very uncomfortable with this constant feeling of fullness. At this point I'm very worried about having impacted bowels and just miserable... I am not sure if I should take the day off from work tomorrow and see another doc or give the dulcolax, and miralax a few more days... any advice is appreciated. thank you.

  • Can I get away without back surgery if my doctor says I need it?

    Best answer: The purpose of back exercises or even surgery is to take the pain away and you say you are already having improvement. For God's sake do not have an operation unless it is absolutely necessary. There is a high level of failed back surgeries and patients often end up worse than they started with.
