    Lower back and foot pain when walking

    I became unemployed about two and a half months ago. Before my unemployment I worked a parttime, quite physical job. Since my job ended I haven't been as active as before. I walk a lot with my dog, about an hour a day, but I've noticed that since my unemployment those walks have become a lot more taxing. I experience sometimes severe lower back pain and pain in my feet sometimes within minutes after leaving my house, and it makes walking a lot less enjoyable. I don't really have pain....

    Negative urinalysis for Fentanyl questions

    Hello everyone, I am a 100% disabled veteran! I have severe gulf war illnesses and lost my colon with other internal body parts are rotting away.

    Chronic Daily Migraine

    My daughter began having migraines when she was merely two years old. They have progressed over the years to the point she is currently disabled with chronic daily migraines and cluster headaches. We have tried literally every type of treatment including biofeedback, opioids (and every other pain medication available), botox injections, acupuncture, kinesiology, physical therapy, massage therapy, hormone therapy, sleep specialists, pain management clinic, homeopathy and holistic medicine, psychology....
  • Low back pain - getting desperate.

    I injured my back in yoga a couple years ago (hyperextension). It hasn't really been the same since then. I picked yoga back and was feeling discomfort in my low back. I started to have pain after standing for long periods of time, relieved by bending forward. I started seeing a physical therapist and it seemed to be helping at first. I was doing better so he progressed me to the next level (one-legged bridges, bands, etc.). It seemed fine but I woke up the next morning with pain around the top....

    I'm a little concerned about my dad..

    I'm not entirely sure if I'm postingoing this in the right section but here goes: my dad has been drinking degranol for about 10 or more years because he had an accident that severly injured his back now he wants to stop the degranol because of the side effects, my concern is he did leave degranol for a while before abruptly and it had some really bad effects like memory loss, he got angry for no reason and for 2 days refused to eat or drink anything wich lead to us having to take him to....

    Lis Franc

    Last spring I hurt my foot while playing soccer. I went to the ER and said I tore my lis franc and I was to see a specialist. The specialist said I need surgery because it's a 50/50 chance that it could heal on its own. We got a second opinion and he said that it didn't seem bad enough to do surgery. We waited about 5 weeks and there was hardly an pain. We decided not to do the surgery since everything seemed fine. Haven't had any pain over the summer until fall soccer approached. Now....

    I have an itchy rash on my back and many other itchy spots all over my body. I have tried steroid creams, prednisone, and other meds but none seem to help.

    I had carpal tunnel surgery about 2 years ago that resulted in a partially severed nerve that required a second repair surgery. I have no feeling in my second & third fingers of that hand. I had P.T. for a year to help regain sensation & movement of the hand. It is still limited. Then about 3 months after the P.T. was terminated, I developed a rash on my back. Nothing seems to heal the rash, and it itches terribly. The itchiness can be on different parts of my body at times. This has gone....
