    Left Hip Pain

    Hello, everyone. You can read my biography by clicking on my user name. In 2015 I had both hips replaced - my right in June and left in November. The surgery was successful and I have been thrilled with the results. About 3 or 4 weeks ago I started having pain in my left hip that is just like before the surgery. I did not fall, but slipped and "wrenched" my left hip. The pain is more towards the groin and in my left buttocks cheek, with pain and tingling radiating down my left leg (thigh....

    Should I go to the doctor for leg cramps?

    My son is 13 years old. For years, ever since he was very young, he has been getting these terrible leg cramps in both his calves and thighs. He gets periods where he has them more frequently and ones where he doesn't. They hurt pretty bad, but usually ice, massaging it, and painkillers stop the pain. It usually happens after exercise. He stretches a pretty good bit before working out however. I would say it is chronic as he has been getting them 4-6 days per week lately. They hurt him very bad....

    shoulder pain

    I was diagnosed with "frozen shoulder". X ray showed mild arthosis. Dr injected me with cortison in February, and pain was gone almost immediatelly for about 3 months. Now pain is back... Just noticed that when I am at the beach for a few hours pain is milder or non existing. This is a fact, everytime I go the the beach I notice that. However next day after beach pain is back. So the question would be what factors associated with beach make my shoulder pain go away? What could be a possible....
  • Opioids for Chronic Pain Management

    What should happen when someone who has been on long term opioid therapy becomes opioid tolerant? Is it ok to increase dosages, go on to stronger medications? I would prefer not to receive judge mental replies about sucking it up, just put up with it etc. Tolerance is a natural physiological response that is not good or bad, and it happens with other medications as well. it seems like a real dilemma for people in real pain who rely on opioids to have some quality of life.

    Can an infected ingrown toenail grow out without surgery removal?

    I have 2 ingrown toenail that start at the base of my toe. I have had one partially cut out by a professional, and it grew back into an ingrown toenail. I've tried to cut out both and got most of the nail out of one, but now there is a sore pink sort of pocket over the ingrown nail. I soak my toes in Epsom salt and warm water, I pour Hydrogen peroxide on the toes, then I put a band-aid with Neosporin on. Could this nail grow out and not have surgery again? Thank you!
