I have osteo-arthritis throughout my body and degenerative

I have osteo-arthritis throughout my body and degenerative dics disease. My orthopedic Dr. retired a few years back. I was his patient for 20 years. I have had 2 cervical disc fushions, a nerve block- non of these procedures have been effective! I have had a neck epidural 2xs and a spinal epidural, which left my leg numb for 2 weeks. Writting this e-mail is difficult as my hands go numb with use due to my neck problem. I have had trigger injections, physcial therapy, and muscle massages. I amlooking for a Dr. in my new area that will prescribe the pain medication I am almost out. I do not wish to go through these procedures again. Can you help me in McComb, Ms.?JA: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?Customer: I have been dealing with these problems since 1990.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: Some of my family members also have similar bone conditions or muscle disorders. I also have come down in meds which use to be 100mg Demerol I took with other Rx. and never got addicted. I also go to a Psy. Dr. for Clinical depression from chronic pain disorder with Bipolar Dys.. My life is a mess. I currently am on meds for all, but pain med is all most gone. The pain is killing me.JA: OK. Got it.

I'm 54 a woman and I have pain in my p bone. In the portion

I'm 54 a woman and I have pain in my hip bone. In the portion that wraps around somewhere deep inside the hip and the lower back on that side hurts. I'd say it started 3 weeks ago when I sit or bend down to pick something up it hurts really bad and almost burns. I'm a little over weight but not by much. I had a hysterectomy 8 weeks ago but the pain didn't start right after surgery and the surgeon didn't think it was related to the surgery. He did say since I had a huge fibroid removed approx 7 lbs I could have posture changes but I don't know. I can take Advil and Tylenol and get some relief but don't want to take it very long I've never had back pain that lasted mor than a couple day ever.

My left p and sometimes left knee hurt when I sit up from a

My left hip and sometimes left knee hurt when I sit up from a sitting position but they stop hurting after I have taken four or five steps. Then I am fine and can even run without pain.I was examined by a bone doctor who took x-rays a year ago and he said they looked healthy and I was suffering from bursitis. He referred me to PT who said I had arthritis, not bursitis.I am 75 and have been having this problem the past two years. I assumed it was due to heavy lifting, pushing, and pulling due to our four moves during those two years.What baffles me most if that it hurts only when I change from a sitting position to a standing position.Should I see a bone doctor again only to be probably told the same thing? What kind of questions should I ask?

I'm looking information about Blood Clots in legs. Yesterday

I'm looking for general information about Blood Clots in legs. Yesterday morning I woke up with a pain in my high thigh/inner thigh. Now I had not worked out or done any exercises the day before this. It was a real sharp pain, it hurts when I move my left leg in certain positions. It does not hurt me when I walk.For instance when I sit or sit back in a chair for a short period of time and then go to get up, i get the sharp pain in my upper thigh(almost nearing the groin), i also get that same pain when im sitting down and go to lift my leg up(to cross it on my other).I have no noticeable swelling in my legs or feet. I do not feel bad,do not feel anxiety,chest does not hurt,breathing is fine.I was wondering, if I had a blood clot, would one have all ready formed from yesterday till today? The pain was worse yesterday and it lasted all day yesterday. Today I say on a scale from 1 to 10(10 being yesterday) I'd say today is about a 5.How long does blood clots usually take to form in a leg(swell) after the pain starts in the leg?(assuming I even have one)
