HI, I bent over to reach for something this morning


I bent over to reach for something this morning and felt a twinge in my back. I have a herniated disk. the pain is going down my left leg and all across my lower back, my twinges in the front of my thighs as well. I went to urgent care and was given a muscle relaxer but after a few hours it doesn't seem to be helping. I was told it was back spasm, should muscle relaxer be helping if that is what it is?

Hello I am a 52 year old women, I had my gallbladder removed 2 years ago but I still continue to get a pain on my left side, right underneath my rib............ especially if I bend over to tie shoes,,,, or pick something of the floor or reach towards my feet ..... it feels like something is bulging out and constricting like muscle cramps I am worried that it wasn t my gallbladder and I might have something else wrong, I do suffer from acid reflux at times, when I eat certain foods I notice that pain is stronger or I over eat.

I forget what the number is called, but I mean the first one, like 230/150 or something to that effect. I would think a seizure is possible, but am unaware of the consequences. Thank you for your concern, but it is not me that suffers from it. I have a relative that has been on medication for high blood pressure for a long time and still has extremely high numbers almost everyday. Honestly, I do not understand how he is still standing.

Hi, I have been having a prickly type of pain all over my abdomen area. It has been going on/off for about 2-3 weeks. I first noticed it after I was sitting in a car as a passenger and dropped something on the floorboard and had bent over to get it, and then I was sore, and then this prickly type of pain has kept on, even though it has been 2-3 weeks. I m not overweight but could lose some weight. I m 5 1 and about 130 lbs, and 49 years old so alot of muscle has went to alot of fat. It feels like someone is sticking pins in me. Thank you
