    Need 2nd opinion: Hard Lumps outside my knee cap

    I have hard lumps next to the right of my knee cap located on my right knee. They change (in a sense) sometimes it feels harder, sometimes you can really see it, as it sticks out more, but you can definitely feel the lump. Also, the lump is connected to a mass above my knee cap, can't see the mass, but you can feel it when you touch it. It has caused a range of pain over the years from no pain to dull pain to severe pain to can't hardly walk on it or lay on it at night. Sometimes, it swells....

    Knee pain relief for ITBS

    I went to an orthopedic doctor about 2 months ago and he said I injured my IT band and gave me some stretches and strengthening excercises which has helped along with rest/ice. It still is sore often I want to get back to going on long walks and water skiing. I experimented with using an IT band strap and compression sleeve. I thought the strap was useless but the knee sleeve did an okay job. Any recommendations on a good knee brace/support for this injury?

    So embarrassed; Pain Center said I failed Tramadol test

    I don't know what to do, I have been going to a pain center for shots to help my back. The last shot I received finally did it. It worked. The Assistant said the doctor would like to stop taking Tramadol, I said ok. Well I received a phone call stating I was released because I failed the Tramadol test. I had not received nothing prior. I don't care about pills, drugs, all I need s my shot. What do I do to get back to the pain center???? please Help.

    Pain radiating from right lower back to foot

    In March of this year, I fell and fractured my left knee and femur. A few weeks after the surgery, my lower back started to hurt and by the end of the day, I couldn’t bend over. I assumed the muscles were weak and pt would help. For the past 6 weeks, I have been having excruciating pain starting in my low back on the right side and all the way down to my foot. The pain will get so bad that I can’t get out of bed and the only “comfortable” position is lying on my left side with a pillow in between....

    Knee pain

    My left knee has been giving me grief here and there for a couple years now but it’s never been overwhelming until just recently. Every time I kneel down (which is pretty often) it feels like I’m kneeling on nails. I’ve been kneeling on concrete floors for about 17 years now so I’m sure my knee is shot. I plan on holding off until September or October to see a doctor because of a busy next couple months. Any thoughts on what I might be looking at? Suggestions for pain management and inflammation....

    Broken toe

    I am 13 yo and I was riding a pedalgo cart and almost crashed but I put my feet down to stop myself (Fred flinstone style:p) and scraped a huge chunk of skin off the tip of my big toe . We cleaned it out and bandaged it but it's been 13 days and the cut is healed but my toe is swollen and a little bruised and still hurts really bad (can't put weight on it) could it be broken???
