Best solution for leg scar?
Hi and thanks for posting. Leg scars cause no harm unless for esthetic purposes. The best thing to do is to feel comfortable even with the scar. If you really want to germ rid of it, then an exam followed by maybe medical or surgical treatment may be the next option to consider depending on its size and nature. Hope it helps and wish you well. Dr. Ditah, MD
 
why does your leg get numb when you get a pinched nerve in your lower back? Is the circulation cut off of my leg or something??
Hi there, Thanks for your query. Nerves conduct pain and other sensations to the brain, which perceives them. A compressed nerve fails to transmit these sensations to the brain. Hence you feel that your leg is numb or, may 'pins and needles' sensation if the nerve is irritated by compression. It has nothing to do with circulation. Dr. Rakesh Karanwal
 
Why do my hands/arms always feel like they are swollen even though they arent? This is most notable in the morning.
It is because of the stasis of the blood in the legs while you are asleep. Do a workout in the morning as you wake up.
