1353681 tn?1387083733 My sister has had severe leg pain and twitching..no diagnosis for two years. She's diabetic but ruled out neuropathy. She now is experiencing a new clawing pain in the buttocks, that extends down into thigh. (Right) She can BARELY even move. They've ruled out a clot, but are not sure this new severe pain in buttocks and going down leg. Any ideas? They'll be doing an MRI of spine a second time soon.

Avatar n tn Your mother requires evaluation by a wound-care specialist, commonly associated with diabetic clinics. As soon as possible. As of yesterday. Leg wounds that won't heal are common in diabetics (as well as the elderly with compromised micro-circulation) and require a lot of professional attention. The avergae GP is above his pay grade in treating these. There are various approaches, the most recent and (non-approved) is the use of a nicotine patch or smoking a cigarette or two a day.

Avatar f tn 3 weeks ago I started doing my shots in the top part of my leg. Last few days both legs are cramping from the knee up. Is this normal? Am I destroying the muscle with the shots there? The pain is pretty intense and today can barely walk. I'm done shooting in the leg, but had to stop doing shots in my stomach because of the stomach pain. Now where can I do the shots? Or will it be the same thing with the pain no matter where I do it?

Avatar f tn Lately I have been fainting and falling alot (very embarrising since I am in High School). Just recently I have also been getting severe leg and back cramps/spasms. I am having a hard time sleeping at night getting only about 3 to 4 hours of sleep. This has also been going on for over 1 year. I have seen several doctors, who have run MRI's, CAT scans and they all have done blood work. Everything always comes up normal. I just don't feel well anymore.

429432 tn?1343594190 Anyone ever hear of Metanx? My Dr. prescribed it for nerve damage in my leg/back, but the website says it's for diabetics. I'm not diabetic, shoulds I even be taking this stuff? Years ago, she gave me Vioxx, I read the warning leaflet and threw the pills in the trash. I was right, they were pulled off the market later on. I'm not sure about this either...

Avatar f tn My Mom was told this in the ER after she broke her leg... she was already a dialysis patient at that point, though.
Avatar f tn You may have a potentially life-threatening problem. Minor toe infections often develop into full-fledged osteomyelitis. Painful pinching is sometimes the warning symptom. You could lose toes, a foot or a leg. This is very common with diabetics. This, of course is a "worse-case" scenario. You need a visit to a good podiatrist affiliated with a hospital to take an x-ray and then an MRI if indicated, as well as a diabetic screen (an hba1c blood test).

Avatar n tn I've been looking into using wax & its recommended diabetics do not wax. I just read a previous answer to a waxing question that it may have to do with neuropathy. I was wondering if the amount of fructose, glucose & maltrose used in the wax may be another reason? Is it possible that they could be absorbed through the skin?
