    Bilateral leg pain for almost a year!

    I am a 31 year old male that has been experiencing bilateral leg pain for almost 10 months. Pain initially was only in thighs and calves. Seems to more be focused around the knees at the moment. No weakness really, and no numbness. Almost burning feeling sometimes. They have felt kind of jelly like a couple times after exercise but not a usual thing. Some spasms... Usually okay if not walking or standing for an extended period of time, but will start to ache when doing so. Hot baths seem to help....

  • Chronic Pain, No Diagnosis, Could It Be Slipping Rib Syndrome?

    16 months ago I was in a car accident that has left me with middle back pain ever since. I have gone through various treatments and seen a handful of doctors in which not one of them have successfully diagnosed or treated my injury and the pain to which it causes. For those who are interested I will break this post down by the accident, my symptoms, my treatment, testing performed, diagnoses and where I am today. The Accident: I was rear ended while stopped at a traffic light by a much larger SUV....

    Norco dosage: What's better?

    I'm caregiver to an 87-year old patient with chronic pain from severe degenerative joint disease. She had previously been on Norco 7.5/325, and due to worsening symptoms, her dosage was changed to 10/325, with both prescriptions for 1 tablet 3 times daily. She reports better pain relief with the 10/325, but has been experiencing dizziness since switching to this dosage. I'm wondering if returning to 7.5mg, but with 4 tablets per day, would be better for her, as she would still get a total....

    Perocets and dea

    Its funny perocets have been around to help people in pain . Just like the years that heroin and cocaine until our government and dea decided it's not good for people .granted heroin and cocaine is really messed up .the problem is our government really dont know squat about nothing. It's funny there was a picture of our president with Osama bin laden, not counting he was in our CIA. Anyway the reason I believe the dea is coming down hard on perocets is because its easier then trying to stop....

    Herniated discs/chronic back pain

    When I was 19, I slipped down some slick stairs and landed badly on my lower back and right shoulder. I had severe back pain for weeks afterward when lying down but just thought it was probably a bad bruise, possibly a muscle strain/sprain. Fast forward to 6 months later I got checked out by a local clinic doctor because I was having weird numbness, shocking, and stabbing leg pain. They did one X-ray and prescribed a ton of various pain meds including an opioid and said to come back in 6 months.....

    Can My Pain Be Cured Or Simply Managed?

    Hello, My name is Asim Khan. I have been suffering from back pain from a long time and had also been under medications for three months, but nothing worked. I have researched a lot about back pain and had also read about it from various source, but nothing worked. Someone told me to do exercise and stretching, but it didn't work. Now I doubt that I will have to live with pain, and I don't think my back pain is ever going to get cured. Can any of you guide me and advice relating to my doubt....

    Is Daily Advil Use Dangerous For Elderly Patient?

    Hi, My mom is 87 years old and suffered a brain bleed stroke 5 years ago. She broke her hip last year and it is unrepaired because the surgery was too risky. This has left her bed bound and in a situation of chronic pain. Her psychiatrist recommends her to take Tylenol and Advil together 3 times per day. This actually does a good job at relieving her pain. Regarding the dangers of daily Advil use his position is that my mom is at the end of her life and it will take years for a kidney problem to....

    Severe back pain

    I'm 22 years old. I originally hurt my back when I had a fall forward (almost 2 years ago). I never had diagnostics and was given anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxers. I was fine until one year ago. I had pain in my middle back (top of hips to mid sternum). I went to a chiropractor and physical therapy which both helped at first then I hit a wall. I had radiographs and a bone spect and everything is normal. I'm stuck whether I need to keep pushing doctors to find something wrong, or accept....
