Question: I have been having lower back on the left side and I can feel it some in my hip I suffer from sciatica and today after church I started having horrible pain in my right leg and in my hip and every time I walk and put my foot down I am not able to walk without pain in every step even when I'm sitting. It hurts so bad I am having to use my moms stroller that she uses to help her walk. What should I do help?

Brief Answer:
Hip arthritis or spine spondylosis

Detailed Answer:
Hi there

Thanks for the query

It appears that you could be having a hip pathology.

I would advise you to use a walking stick in the opposite side while walking. Apply hot packs to the affected region.

Get an Xray of the hip AP and Lateral views and also of the lumbosacral spine.

Do upload the reports for my review. We need to rule out arthritis.

I hope I have answered your query.

I will be available to answer your follow up queries.

Regards,

Dr. Aashish Raghu

Hi, I am 28 weeks pregnant with baby #2 and have been experiencing low back ache very infrequently, but for about a week or more now. The last 2 days I ve had very soft stools , and today was 2 cases of extremely soft stool/diarrhea-like. I am technically at risk for pre-term labor because baby #1 was born at 35 weeks, so I am getting a weekly injection of progesterin (?) hormone. I was also diagnosed with lymes at about 19 weeks, and have an appointment with infectious disease in one week. What I m concerned about is the new symptom of loose stools now...I just had a OB appointment one week ago, do I make another appt?

I believe I was infected with salmonella via a chicken salad sandwich on Thursday about 11am - and by 10pm I was experiencing explosive watery diarrhea and extreme chills with abdominal pain, wretching nonproductive vomiting (post Gastric Bypass 7yrs)....this continued until I had not urinated for 16 hours and had lost 14 pounds on the scale in 36 hours and was tachycardic 130bpm with a low bp 90/62...I went to ER, received 3 liters saline and urinated 50 cc, was sent home...I am now experiencing constant sweats with diarrhea slowing to every 3 hours. WBC , eisinophils below normal at er lab, other indicators of dehydration as expected...the sweats are a change - is this normal and what is the cause? or mechanism that is occuring in this infectious process?
