Detailed Answer:
Hi i am Dr Ahmed Aly
thanks for using HealthcareMagic site ,
I had gone through your question and understand your concerns ..

In my opinion you may have a kind of arthritis it could be due to gout or rheumatoid . you mentioned taking aleve which is a painkiller with an anti inflammatory action that decreases inflammation in your joints that could cause such pain . do not worry actually that is very common with aging , lack of exercises and obesity .
For my patients i may suggest painkillers , hot massages with topical gels , muscle relaxants , B12 vitamin supplementation , high fluid intake will be effective for most of cases .in some cases we may add steroids if needed .
You should avoid heavy lifting , overweight , vigorous movements , high salt and proteins meals , bad sleeping or sitting postures , standing or walking for a long time and avoid bending your knees for a long time .
You may have some lab investigations like urine analysis , ASOT ( anti strepto lysin o titre ) , Rf ( rheumatoid factor ) , ESR ( erythrocyte sedimentation rate ) and follow them up with your physician for proper evaluation and management .

I was vomiting all night, then diarrhea, fever(99.7) and then leg halves. I ve taken aleve, generic imodian. The fever has gone down, diarrhea gone but I still have the itchy leg halves. The halves are starting to appear on my arms now. I am out of town, should I go to a clinic? The only thing I can eat is water and crackers.

Yes I have been taking Aleve for joint pain and it was very effective but recently I have been getting nose bleeds. I am thinking this has to do with the Aleve so I have stopped taking it. Does MegaRed joint care have anything in it that will also cause my nose to bleed?

I had a bowel movement this morning .... with soft formed dark colored feces and flowing out from the feces into the toilet water was maroon colored and it discolored the toilet water to reddish maroon. I have chronic low back pain, stopped Ibuprofen years ago because of the same problem and after a time the stools were soft formed, normal. So, after several years of normal stools I started taking Aleve and using a TENS unit for low back pain for about 3 months now and the bloody stools are back again. I m 73 y.o. female, 5 5 , 165# and in good health, no medicine except buproprion for depression and Aleve for chronic low back pain. I ve tried physical therapy, chiropractor who treated me with cold laser and stim (electrodes on my low back), now an acupuncturist. I have an appointment with a neuronsurgeon a month from now hoping he ll order a CT scan to determine if my back pain is a structural problem.... which can be easily corrected with non-invasive surgery... In the meantime I plan to discontinue the Aleve altogether. Your thoughts? I care for two grandchildren and need to be strong and healthy :)

I have internal and external hemerroids and have just had a bowel movement that was quite bloody. The external ones were not the culprits this time. I have been taking 4 generic aleve pills a day for some time for extreme pain in my toe joints. Could this be my problem? I had a colonoscopy in 2008 and no problems were found. I am a 48 year old woman who is in reasonably good health, but I'm sort of a basket case tonight!
