What is this weird foot pain?

Three or four weeks ago I fell at work...and then days later, fell down some steps at home. I know, I'm coordinated like that. Ever since the falls I've had pain that goes across the top of my foot. It's been a while now and the pain isn't getting better...but it's not getting worse either. What could it be? [more inside]

(Boston) - What is the cost of cervical disc surgery?

After 2 years of dealing with an insane doctor who told me that God and Tylenol will cure me, I finally got a new doctor who sent me to a neurologist who diagnosed me with a neck hernia or rather, C5 C6 disc herniation. In addition to MRI findings, they also found out that I have Clonus. [more inside]

Just started Wellbutrin: Muscle tension?

I have just started up on wellbutrin XL 150mg about a week ago, and my shoulder has been getting really achey. My shoulder is tiring out very quickly when lifting things/typing. My hand is tingling a little, and it feels like my left pec is really tight. and doesn't think it has anything to do with the med. But it says online that muscle pain could be a rare side effect of wellbutrin. Has anyone who has taken wellbutrin had difficulties with, or even had to quit, because of muscle tension? Do these problems go away after the startup period?

What's a good knee wrap for warmth and support? (patella tendon)

Asking for a friend: What's a good knee wrap for warmth and support? I've been treated for patella tendonosis. I'm a middle-aged man in Seattle. It doesn't get very cold here, but even below 50 degrees, my knee starts to ache. Looking for a way to keep the knee joint nice and warm, and extra support for the tendon. Thinking of buying this knee wrap. Anyone have first hand (first knee?) experience? You are not my doctor. You are not my physical therapist.

Curious about my possessed knuckle

I woke in the middle of the night last night with a pain in my finger, only to find that my pinky knuckle--and only my pinky knuckle--was red, sore, and a little swollen. I put some antibiotic ointment on it (because that is my solution for everything) and went back to sleep. When I woke up this morning, it was completely back to normal. I know you're not a doctor, but what is this? Did I cut off circulation? Was it an illusion created by my anxiety-prone mind? Am I going to die? If it helps, I live in a cold climate and I've never broken any fingers.

Chest pains after vodka

Help for jaw neuralgia?

In May, I went to my dentist for a deep root cleaning on my upper and lower teeth on the left side (with the right side to be done the following week). After the Novocain wore off, I had the usual mild soreness that has accompanied similar cleanings in the past. However, after a couple of days the pain started to migrate over to the right side (i.e., the side that had not been cleaned), at which point it gradually flared into an intense upper and lower jaw ache that was reminiscent of the pain of getting my braces adjusted or the pain that followed my jaw surgery about 9 years ago. The pain lasted off and on for about a month, then gradually went away – until... [more inside]

Is breastfeeding supposed to hurt?

Exclusively breastfeeding my 4-month-old daughter and my joints have been hurting every day since a few weeks after her birth--particularly my hands, wrists, and ankles. My hands and wrists are also noticeably bigger. Everything hurts worse in the morning. I know prolactin is a pro-inflammatory so maybe that's why, and maybe I can expect things to get better when I wean her? I have a history of other autoimmune diseases so I am worried about RA. I have an appt with a rheumatologist but couldn't get in for several weeks so, in the meantime, is this something others have experienced? In other words, so that I can sleep at night without worry, did others have achy joints that went away after weaning? I'm hoping this can be chalked up to the prolactin and not RA that has been triggered...

Can you pull a leg muscle - while sleeping?

This has happened once or twice a year for a while. I'm asleep, and awake to find my leg (either one) feels really tight, strained and overtense, in the thigh and calf, like there are muscles there that are on the verge of ripping. It's very painful for a very short while - usually wakes me up screaming, and painful to walk on for an hour or two onwards, but then subsides during the day. [more inside]

Did your back get better?

So I've been at least preliminarily diagnosed with a herniated disk at the L5-S1 level. This is after a couple months of back and leg pain and an attempt to treat it with oral Prednisone. The Prednisone worked for a few days while I was on it but the pain came back after the course was over. Yesterday, I went back to my GP and he gave me the diagnosis and referred me to a neurologist and is arranging for an MRI. My question is: have you been through this, what was your treatment and how did it go? [more inside]

How to deal with a loss of a career due to chronic injury

Hello, I am worried about my mental health because I am about to give up a career that I love because of a health issue. I work in a very competitive industry and I have, after many years of hard work been given my dream job. My work is exciting, varied and creative. It is also extremely physical. I am at the edge of achieving all my goals. But my condition means I am struggling to do the job. I am only in my late 20's My questions are: How can I deal mentally if I have to quit? I feel to a large extent defined by my work. I feel everything I worked for over the last 10 years is about to be ruined. I'm worried that I wont have anything else in my life that I can truly excel at. For those of you that have had a similar loss how did you cope? (Loss of a career, sport, hobby, etc) Thanks

Ma, it hurts!

As I get older (34f) I'm finding that when I stub my toe or accidentally bump myself somewhere, it hurts so much more than it used to. I used to bounce back pretty quickly. It's not like I bruise more easily, just the immediate pain is more acute and lasts a bit longer. Got any tips on how to bring back more resilience?

Headache from Urination Strain (worried)

hey everyone. A short while back, I was in a phase where I was straining alot when I was peeing. I was being very OCD about emptying my bladder is what I'm saying. I did this until I started to feel a pain in my abdomen as well as an aching sensation in the right side of my head. I immediately stopped. While the pain in the abdomen went away, the headache persisted. Eventually I went to my MD and he didn't seem that worried about it and said it would go away. The head sensation sort of changes often. Sometimes it's a mild to moderate pain and sometimes it feels like sort of a cold feeling on the right side of my head if that makes sense. i wanted to get you guy's takes on this.
