Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
What is your Height and weight? Are you Diabetic or Hypertensive? Do you have any knee pain? Since how long are you experiencing this? You should be getting yourself examined by a Physician and Orthopedist to rule out Osteoarthritis and any Kidney Problem. You might require to get a X ray done to confirm Osteoarthritis and a blood test to rule out any other Problem? Until confirmed no medication can be prescribed.
Avoid stress and get adequate rest. Sleep for 8 hours daily and eat healthy nutritious balanced diet, which should include fresh fruits and green leafy veggies. If you are overweight, try reducing your weight.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

My daughter had high fever, body aches,weakness and dry cough, I took her to the Dr and they said it was the flu(with out doing a swab). They put her on tamiflu and was so much better in the morning, her fever was down and she seemed much better. She has been without fever for 2 days but she is complaining of leg pain that causes her trouble to walk. What could this be? Is it still part of the flu or side effects of Tamiflu?

Hi, having a problem on going down on my meds. My old doctor has left and had to find another Doctor for my Chronic pain before and after surgery was performed with a bone harvest. All of my cervical have some sort of problems. Now this doctor is taking me down on both my meds at once. Having a huge problem with this and being on both meds for over 8 years is a problem in going down on the dosage. The biggest probem is the xanax of taking 3day 2 pm total of 5mg. I am down to 2 mg at pm only. However it seems like this is the bottom line for me. Trying to take less will not allow me to sleep. The daily anxiety well just have to wait it out, and that s a problem as well. This doctor also took me down at the same time with my oxycotin 20mg 3x day and not only take 20mg 2x daily. In my opinion she has taken me down far too fast for being on for so long. My biggest question is WHY ? My next question would be what is the point if I suffer from hyperthyoidism and chronic pain at all times with a flatten spinal cord. Help is needed in coping with daily and nigh time withdrawls for HOW MUCH LONGER at this dosage if she stops and leaves me at this dosage ? Does this make sense ?

I have a 15 year old son that had a mri due to chronic pain in his groin. The results were he has a swollen psoas muscle and a cystS2 attached to this muscle. The pediatrician has referred us to a sports doctor, and I was wondering how common this is to find.

Hi! My name is Angie and I m a 30 year old single mom of 3 kids. I was in a car accident about 6 years ago where I sprained my neck and my shoulder. While that injury is not terrible, the accident as well as events following have created a lot of problems for me. I was diagnosed with 2 bulging discs in my lower neck (I don t remember exactly where they are) and I went to a chiropractor for some relief. After that visit I ended up in the ER unable to twist or bend my neck/back and since then I have had chronic pain. I ve gone through physical therapy, done cold and heat therapy, etc.. Every time I talk to a doctor I hear the same thing You re too young to have this many problems. Um..I KNOW! I m tired of getting treated like a drug seeker, yes, I AM looking for pain medicine because I AM IN PAIN! No one will listen to me, no one will help me! It s not just my back though..it s virtually all of my joints. My knees hurt so bad at times walking up and down my stairs in a problem, my lower back pain has caused me tremendous problems at work because I can t stand for long periods of time, and I m a waitress/chef, or I was, I just lost my job because of this. My fingers hurt, my wrists, my elbows in the morning..and my big toe. I have medicaid so I don t have many options when it comes to medical care and I can t find a doctor to listen to my concerns and help me without judging me. I m sick of this. I can t keep living this way! I m missing out on so much with my kids because I can t play with them the way that I should. My quality of life is terrible! Please help!
