Question: My husband is having pain for two days in his right hip/abdomen area that sometimes radiates around his stomach in the front and the back. His only relief is sitting still or lying still. Getting up and down is painful and walking is difficult. Sometimes the right leg gives on him.

Brief Answer:
Needs Proper diagnosis at the earliest for a proper management.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history about your husband and understood the concerns.
The history as noted indicate that the problems may either be muscular spasm or a problem related to spine causing all the symptoms as mentioned. And in addition can not take Advil, aspirin and such NSAIDs as he is on Epiquis.
Hence I would advise him the following:
Clinical evaluation, examination and investigations to know the exact cause.
Please take him to the Doctor or ER for getting the clinical diagnosis so that further investigations as advised , say for example MRI can help to pin-point the cause as getting the correct diagnosis is very important considering the past history.

I hope this answer helps you both the get the proper diagnosis at the earliest.

OK. Just saw a neurosurgeon last Friday with MRI of lower lumbar and said was nothing he could do for him unless having pain run down into legs. Pain has suddenly sifted from lumbar 4, 5, 6 to this new area. He says it feels like his hip is disconnected or something. Husband said is right side not left, but don't think that makes any difference. Will try to get him to go to the ER but think he'll have to suffer a bit longer before he's willing to go. Thank you.

Brief Answer:
As detailed below.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your feedback.
Noted the opinion of a Neurosurgeon.
As said above, this may be due to muscle spasm causing the secondary problems but it is necessary to get a proper diagnosis and to see for or rule out any problem with the right hip by clinical examination and investigations.
Surely, there are medicines for pain and spasm that can be prescribed judiciously.
Till then he can full bed rest, warm fomentations in a warm room.
Please give feedback.

Hi, my husband was diagnosed with ventricular tachychardia. Lastnight he was experiencing dizziness and felt like the whole room was spinning around. He is also diabetic and has high blood pressure. He is currently taking the following meds. Nifedipine 10mg. generic for procardia (2 capsules 3x daily), Aspirin 325 mg.(1 tablet daily), Metroprolol 50mg. generic for Lopressor (1 capsule 2x daily) , Pravastatin 40mg. generic for Pravachol) (1 taken before bedtime), Lisonopril 40mg. generic for zestril ((2 tablets daily - 1 in a.m. and the other in p.m.) , and Metformin 500mg. generic for glucophage (1 tablet 1x daily) . The Nifedipine that his taking really makes him really drowsy, and sleep alot. What can I do? I m also thinking that what happened to him lastnight was partly due to his diabetes and possibly his blood pressure. I fed him turkey burger (plain), no salt only garlic and herb with lettuce on wheat bread. He is now currently sleeping. Would he be okay later?

I am 59 year old male. My foreskin is getting thicker, harder and I can't control where my urine goes. It goes everywhere. I have also found blood spots in my underwear a couple of times, months apart. I had a urinalysis and blood was found. I had a couple of heart attacks last year, but my heart is doing great! I had 2 stints put in. I take plavix, metropolol, simvistatin, lisinopril, and an 85mg aspirin daily. I will be seeing a urinologist in a month, but I am worried. Would like to have some idea what may be going on. I am overweight. I have arthritis. I don't drink or smoke and have never used drugs. I do use tylenol 3 and percoset for pain of the arthritis. I am not very active due to the arthritis pain. I have a degenerated disk in my low back, along with arthritis there. I have no pain urinating or in my kidneys. I have no difficulty urinating, except for the control of where it goes because of the foreskin. I have no problems with erections. Can you give me a little insight into what may be some of the things that may cause this bleeding? Thanks.
