Avatar f tn Wrap the knee with ace bandage or black knee support until u can get to the doc. does your knee crack? Take ibuprofen as directed for swelling. Hope you can get to the ER or doc soon.
Avatar f tn leg weakness (causes my walking to be more of a waddle) - numbness - calluses - knee problems (due to the weakness which would cause more pressure to the knees.) That's my theory but from the neuro's mind I don't have no problem even though he was the one that noticed the weakness.:( Sorry for the vent. Just had to get it out!!
1012558 tn?1250889422 how long has your 12 year old has these problems? because my problems started when i was about 12 years old... and i haven't yet went to the doctor for it because i have been busy with my gyno with female problems but i will definitely let you know when i do go to the doctor..
Avatar m tn It's possible that it caused the problems in your left knee, but it's also possible that the cartilage tore for other reasons, like overuse or aging. Did you do physical therapy after you have your surgery? Why have you needed to favor your right knee all this time?
Avatar m tn The pain occurs directly behind her left knee, and sometimes on the front left side of the knee. I can easily feel a pop in the front left side of the knee when her leg is extended. When she went to physical therapy, the physical therapist pressed on her knee several times in different locations and also extended and contracted her leg to see if there was any pain, but she felt no pain. Her physical therapist said that her mechanics are off.
Avatar f tn When I was a freshman in highschool I had seen a Doctor about my knee problem, and was tolded that my knee caps were making new knee jionts by themselves. They had done surgery on my right knee. I was wondering what the medical name was for this type of knee problem.
Avatar n tn My bone that is on the side of my right knee is bigger than the other side. After walking for a halh hour my knee starts hurting and my leg from the knee down gets numb. I even get pain sometime even lying down. I have a bad back but I don't believe it is from that because the pain does not radiate from my back down to my foot like before. I have a herniated disc at my L5 S1 disc and I have some Arthritis on the L4 disc.
Avatar m tn It sounds a little silly but when my husband was having problems with keeping it up and actually having an orgasm he found that making out like a bunch of teenagers really helped take his mind off of the stress. Maybe you could also try boosting up foreplay and making sex be more about him as he could be feeling very insecure about his body.
Avatar n tn s thyroid is down, his cortisone levels low, his testosterone levels low and his growth hormone levels high. Taps of his knee removed up to 500 cc of fluid, but no evidence of anything specifically wrong inside the knee, just that it was being damaged. He looked gaunt and unhealthy. 1. what hormonal problem could be causing these symptoms? 2. Why would joint damage be associated with rapid growth and low testosterone levels?
Avatar n tn t going to have a life without the meds, but we need to be very careful about giving meds to young people without trying therapy and everything else first -- youthful problems are not thought to be the same usually as adult problems. Even with adults these meds are a problem as well as a boon. You might very well have never found a better solution, but if one turns to drugs without trying other things first one never finds out. I'm not ruling it out, just urging caution. Peace.
Avatar f tn I am sorry about your knee problems. I too have knee problems which were made worse by physical therapy. The one thing I have found that helps me is a good chiropractor treating my knee. Since you are on maternity leave I suggest that you also may want to find a good chiropractor to also treat your back.
497951 tn?1209829733 I have knee problems and will most likely need a knee replacement on my right knee eventually. Also, I have heard the excuse about *scar tissue.* I had carpal tunnel surgery on my right wrist in Oct. 2007, and it still bothers me and the doctor blamed it on scar tissue. I don't know. I'll be honest, I don't really know what to tell you. I have a lot of joint and muscle pain and other problems with blood pressure, cholesterol, etc.
Avatar n tn Her symptoms have included anemia, speech problems (now we find out a swollen tongue is a symptom), soft tooth enamel and for the last 3 years she has had a muscular problem that causes her to freeze up and drag her foot. We've seen 3 neurologists and had numerous EEG's and MRI's, even a psychiatrist after being told (a lot) that it was in her head. Finally, after my insistance, they did a test of T3 and T4 and she was found to have low thyroid.

Avatar f tn Welcome, I feel for you. I was a teenage heroin addict and used for almost 30 yrs. I completely agree w/10356 and Atthebeach. Withdrawal will not kill your daughter and enabling is not the solution. It's one of the problems. Your daughter is at risk of arrest, destructive relationships, criminal behavior and, if she's IVing or moves to IV use: Hep B/C/D, AIDS, Endocarditis, Pneumonia, abcesses, etc. Definitely get to an Al Anon meeting in your area.
Avatar f tn It feels like my knee (the issue is not my knee) is locked and hyper extended when I walk at times. This comes and goes without much warning. The faster I work, the worst it gets and the slower my speed the easier it gets. Sometimes I can't even walk fast even if I try. I had it so worst after my first Zumba fitness prior to my diagnosis which ended me in ER.
Avatar f tn I am only 16 years old, but I'm in love with my daughter already. & if anyone says I'm not going to support her, or be a good mom, etc.. You don't need to comment on this post.. I don't have any type of support other than people supporting me to get an abortion.. I cry myself to sleep all the time because of it... I don't talk to either one of my brothers due to the fact they both wanted me to give her up. & I said no.
Avatar f tn I have a friend who would like to loose weight but has multiple medical problems. She has bursitis of the hip and knee, fibromyalgia (mostly affecting hands) and an umbilical hernia. She cannot walk far at all due to muscle weakness and gets fatigued very quickly. I would like to help her build up a bit of strength and loose weight to make her everyday activities easier. Any suggestions please?
Avatar f tn 3 weeks ago my surgical knee began to ache all over for no obvious reason. I mean it really hurt. I worried about infection because I haven't fallen, or done any other damage to it. It was better in a few day. Then a few days later the pain returned & disappeared again. Last week the pain came back with a vengance & it hurt in a very specific spot in the inside of the kneecap.
