    Back ache that won't go away

    For over a week I've been having back pain. The pain is mostly located a few inches below my right shoulder blade. I've tried NSAIDs, heat, massages, yoga, even going braless. But the pain keeps coming back. When my husband massages my back he said that he feels knots and massages the pain away but the pain comes right back 5 to 10 minutes later. I emailed my doctor. He said to try epsom salt soaks, deep tissue massages and stretching. But the pain keeps coming back. My doctor doesn't....

    INpatient Pain clinic

    Does anyone know of the existence of an INPATIENT pain facility? It seems like every hospital system has an OUTpatient pain clinic, but none have any inpatient. What I am looking for is a pain clinic that does not release you until they are able to find a pain management that works. I have severe chronic joint pain due to joint laxity. All my joints hurt, but no swelling. Everything hurts at a “9” all day, every day. No opioids EVER have helped. I have had a spinal cord stimulator, and several experimental....
  • 18 year old with worsening back pain

    So I’ve been a cart pusher for over a year and a half now. One weekend I was going really hard and while pushing a long line of carts, something in my lower back shifted or poped and it left me with no pain, but a tingling feeling. The next few days pain and disconfort arose and to this day I still experience the pain and discomfort. More so I’ve been noticing it when I sit in chairs or am standing for long periods of time. I goto the chiropractor weekly to get adjusted and even have been recommended....

    Ankle Pain

    About a months ago, I was playing tennis and I sprained my right ankle. For the first few days it was swollen and painful. Eventually the swelling went away, but I still have ankle pain. I try to play tennis but I have to stop cuz of the pain. It also feels weak at times, I would walk and it feels like it would give out. My doctor said to ice my ankle and rest. It is frustrating because Ive tried massages, icing, and pain meds, but nothing is working.

    Hip Flexor/ Very top of thigh/groin pop then pain and swelling

    I was warming up my hips and thighs before my basketball game with some standing hip flexor marches using a band. A few minutes into the game i made a simple extension and felt a sensation at the top of my thigh in the front where my hip is at, it felt like it was going to pop which i thought was normal. It never ended up popping but it started hurting bad as if i had cramped or had a knot in that area. From there on i could not sprint or barely run. I finished the game off some how and throughout....

    Thigh pain after THR revision

    Hello all, rather perplexed at my problem. Wondering how common this is and possible cause. My left hip replacement was revised for the second time 2 years ago now. Relief was wonderful, although the thigh pain which was present before the surgery still remained. Two sets of physio and finally it seemed to have gone. But only for a couple of months then it returned again. The thigh pain is sharp and radiates into the groin and lower pelvic area. It is very difficult to walk when this happens and....
