My shin was quite swallon and was quite painful. It hurt to walk on. Can i get help on this from any Online doctor ?

I got hit in the shin a week and a half ago playing basketball at the begining of the game. I continued playing till the end of the game. Once I stopped I noticed my shin was quite swallon and was quite painful. It hurt to walk on. However after a few days this pain and swelling decreased a little. So when it came to playing basketball I felt fully capable. However after the game the area had once again become swallen and sore . However unlike last time the time when I woke up the next moring the swelling hadn t gone down but spread. The swallen areas feel fluidly. The appearence is much like a bee sting and the swelling is even. It spreads across both sides of the leg and goes as low as the top of my ankle to halfway up my calf muscle.

Hi well come to hcm.
Your injury first time was not totally recovered and you played again that has precipitated the problem. Take some pain killer and show it to orthopedic surgeon. thanks

Just recently my right knee started to hurt to straighten in the inside. Its not my knee cap, its next to it. When i straighten it, i immediately have to stop because of the sharp pain being created. Also walking down stairs hurts. In 2008 i got slide tackled right below my knee in a soccer game. My doctor thought it was an ACL tear, but turned out to be no tear some contusion, blood and water under the knee cap. Over time i got off crutches and did physical therapy , but stopped because that was making it hurt again. Now I have been working alot more, which consists of standing for around 6 or 7 hours and have started playing soccer on the side. I play soccer for my college, so i dont know if that has anything to do with it. I have been icing and everything, however it just doesnt seem to go away. I wanted to get an opinion before i take it too seriously and go to the doctor, for it could just be a little pain from the initial injury and nothing at all. Any insight helps.

hi... i had an operation 10years ago - spondylolisthesis - L4-L5. Now i have constant pain in my right groin and hip area. I cannot lean on my right leg when standing up. Earlier this year i also had left foot on the outer side but it doesnt hurt that often. the groin is painful, and after a while sitting down it hurt to walk and also cannot straighten my back so i wont feel it stretching . i had a check up and because i dont have contact pain and severe,the doctor will be seeing me again in one year followed with a ct scan . Can you help me? Should I consult another doctor or wait? thanks M.M

Hi, over the last month or so I ve started walking the 4-mile commute into work. Yesterday I developed pain in my shin, with slight swelling over the bone (at the front, just over half way down). A faint bruise has now appeared just under the swelling. It really hurts to walk, but I can stand still without problems and the pain goes away with rest. Do you know what this is and how I should treat it?

I was looked at by a nurse and told that my swollen left side of my throat was probably salivary gland and I could have a stone. However, I was stung by 3 bees at once a few days before that. One bee stung me on the foot, another on the left side of my head near my temple and the last one on my left arm. If this was from the bee stings it took several days to appear; is this possible??? I am 51 years old, 5'7" and weigh 200 lbs.

While out running today, I suddenly felt pain on the back of my head that felt much like a bee sting. My daughter looked at the site and said she cannot see any redness or swelling or any other sign of outside injury. Now, about 8 hours later, I can still feel discomfort.
