    Fluid in Bursa Sac

    I have sharp pain on inside of my left hip near my groin anytime I try to lift my leg. Four years ago I actually had to have two of my bursa sacs drained (aspirated) with a needle. Once the fluid was drained, I felt instantaneous and complete pain relief. The Dr. used a screen that helped him direct where the needle was going. The procedure was painless and only took 15 minutes. My problem seems to have returned. Same symptoms. This has been an issue for me since Jan. 2018. My ortho Dr. Just doesn't....

    Pain in Tailbone/back

    Any advice or help appreciated I am a female, 21, and I've been experiencing pain mainly in my tailbone for about a month now. When I stand up, or sit, it feels extremely tender on better days, or on days like today, I find myself having to hold in grunts due to the severe pain at times and struggle to stand right away. I'm on my feet most hours of my day, but I also have time to sit in padded office chairs. I've not fallen or suffered any injuries to the area, and there are no sores....
  • Re: What to do with the diagnosis, "Failed Back Surgery?"

    I was hit while by a car while riding my bike back in 2015. I've had 3 back surgeries now on L4,L5 to correct the problem. I'm in far more pain than I was before the surgeries.

    Does Patroxidan Pain Relief Really Works?

    Strange pain in left neck/shoulder region when exerting energy/when heart rate rises.

    Hello WebMD community. I just joined, and this is my first post because I've seen to have been getting nothing but dismissive responsive for every doctor I've seen regarding this issue, and it's a very crippling issue to endure - I basically can not function normally throughout any given day due to this strange, scary pain that occurs on my left side neck/shoulder, in the "pocket" space where your neck and shoulder meet. I've been experiencing this pain since September of....

    Educated guess for a diagnosis?

    I know that the WebMD community cannot legally diagnose me with any medical condition, so I will hereby hold everyone harmless of legal liabilities who will be kind enough to help me at least get an educated guess on what is causing me so much debilitating pain, that any kind of strenious activity for more than a few minutes makes me feel like I am about to be seriously injured. You see, I have been diagnosed with at least three debilitating diseases already: Fibromyalgia, mild Scoliosis, and I have....
  • Herniated L5 that won't heal at a young age

    I am 21 years old. I officially knew I had a herniated L5 for about eight months and I have had nerve pain for a little over a year. I have always been active in playing sports and getting exercise. I did not have one injury that caused this but rather years of babysitting and picking kids up who were more than half my weight. I am 5'0 and weigh about 120. I have gained weight since my herniated disc because of the limited amount of exercise I can get. I have been told to and I have tried to....
