Sore legs and back for 1 year. Is there anything wrong in my muscle ?

Hello, I am 17.5years old and I have sore legs and back for 1 year and I went to do lots of exams, radiographs, MRI and blood tests, but all exams are normal, and as I have lost my mother 2 years ago the doctors say it s because you re sad and you re in depression , but I dnt think so, because I really feel that there is something wrong with my muscle and I also that my periods are not irregular sinnce 3 years which can cause such pain. And there are some doctors who say that is because of this and other do not share their opinions , I m lost and tired of tired of eating the drugs

Back ache, one of the commonest problem facing mankind, is the price we are paying for having developed erect posture. It can be very distressing for the patient and confusing for the doctor, more so, when all the relevant investigations are normal.

One important point to consider is that pain is a subjective phenomenon. A mother can go through the apparently traumatic child birth without much problem, while at other times, she may not be able to tolerate even a small injection. That is the effect mind has on the pain sensation. When one is depressed, medically unexplained pains are common.

Solution lies in understanding and accepting the problem and tackling depression by pharmacological or other means. Human body is not just a machine, it has a mind of its own.

advice for you that you try to be always positive mentally. do your morning walk daily . give slow stretchings by yourself. try to keep buisy yourself physically and mentally. do 20 minutes pranayam ( anulom -bilom, kapal bhati) each ten minutes, in segment with 2-2 minutes with 1 minute break in between

When you are laying down in bed watching tv or whatever, exercise your back, its comfortable and easy. Lift up your legs 45 degree angle, or do simple sit up quarter way up, not fully. Being in bed makes it a lot easier and less strain is on your back. on top of it all you lose the tummy. ( if you have one ) Set up a regiment such as 10 sit ups during commercial break, take a break for the show...same thing with the leg lifts, set up something that you can keep doing every night or take up swimming its a great way to stretch out those tight muscles. LAST piece of advice is to go for an acupuncture and see if that helps. Hope that helps a bit! THANKS

I was hit by a car 5 days ago. The cars hit the left side of my body and I hit the back of me head on the pavement. I believe I do/did not get a concussion. As of now My lower right back is very sore to the touch to the point where it is sometimes hard to walk on my left leg. I did have a constant headache but as of today it has faded but the back of my head is still very sore when I touch it and I can not sleep on my back or left side. I did see my doctor and was told they where muscle spasms so I should take prescribed pain killers and now I m wondering if it may be anything else wrong?

hi im actually enquiring for a friend who is getting quite anxious and worried because he s had aching arms and legs and also a sore back (but he has had that a few times before!), he reckons his arm hurts even in bed, apparently he feels it started about 3 weeks ago and getting worse. he, by the way he explained it, went to the doctor for a check up and she did blood tests, (i think for basic cholesterol and stuff because it had been awhile) but from what i can gather this was about the time it started and im thinking she wasnt testing for these symtoms. He is actually my ex , but we are still a big part of each others life and have 2 grown up girls, and he may have forgotten but my daughter reminded me that he was actually whinging about sore muscle a few months ago, but not this bad. He is 55 very active but a drinker and heavy smoker, but when he has had check ups in the past has come through remarkably well, as far as heart, cholesterol and blood pressure. he has got himself thinking that somethings really wrong, i told him to go back to doctors asap and get more tests for these symptoms, he has had the same doctor for many years now! what do you think??

I am a reasonably fit 66 year old female &weigh 60kg I have a problem with pain in my left lower back radiating down the back inner thigh through the calf muscle, I cannot sit down for more than a few minutes without a very painfull leg and it feels like something is trapped but have had mri scan that showed nothing, I have had this for a year now and am now starting to have very sore &stiff groins. I have electric impulses in my legs when lying down and can not lie on my left side without pain and it feels more trapped. Can still walk around fine but now its getting progressively worse even though I try to walk every day or do stretching exercises.I have always had very tight tendons in the backs of my legs. The pain is coming through to my left groin as I am sitting here and I feel like I am sitting on raw bones, I do not have much muscle on buttocks but soft cushions do not help
