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 - I have numerous non-specific symptoms: fatigue, digestive problems (early satiety, poor appetite, constipation, excessive wind, bloating etc.), chronic pain (not relieved by standard issue pain meds/cannot tolerate) head, neck, shoulders, mid and lower back and what feels like nerve pain in left thigh etc. Also mouth ulcers and some difficulties swallowing. Persistent pain ULQ and what feels like a bulge in intestine under left ribcage (I can pop this back in by putting pressure on it). I have life long incontinence issues and recurrent UTI s over last few years. I am 57 yrs old and highly motivated by my career - I have no undue social stressors. At this point, while my doctor is an OK practioner I do not feel heard and I do not have the energy to argue my case...I run the risk of being categorised as difficult/fussy/ageing/hypocondriac etc etc but I am exhausted at being dismissed and given the run around. I have positive ANA for several years. Comments or suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks...Karen

I had surgery March 17, this year 2and a half months ago. My spasms pulls my ncck down. They don t have a neck brass to fit me. Will this weaken my bone mass or wii my neck get strong like it was before my surgery? Very scared. My spasms never pulled my neck down and I know the first 12weeks your neck nots to pull down so the bone mass can fuse around my spine bone.

Hello Doctor Grief; my name is Richard Hartsfield, from Alabama. I am a 61 year old veteran and I have been suffering chronic pain (90% arthritic), amongst other things. My doctors at the V.A. in Birmingham, Alabama have been looking after my needs until 16 to 20 months ago. I was told by my doctor at the V.A. that he was being mandated by his SUPERIORES that he was to start the process of taking myself along with all other Veterans that eventually practically all Vets would not be getting any narcotic pain relievers I was fortunate to have an old high school buddy who is a physician refer me to another physician who would see to my needs. I take anywhere from 150 to 170m.g. s of methadone for a long time and am afraid that ,(well I,m afraid that for some unforseeable reason, that I won t be able to get the meds I need. I am a caretaker for my 86 year old mother and it is a gut wrenching thing to watch her slowly die a little each day. To make a long storey short, I am looking ahead and will eventually need my pain meds (legally) each month without the stress of worrying if I will be able to get my meds. Respectfully, Richard Hartsfield
