    For over a decade now whenever I flex/close my knee it will sometimes pop and be locked, while it is locked the pain is excruciating and continues to get worse until I forcibly straighten my leg back out with my hands at which point my knee pops again and the pain slowly subsides in minutes. I havent found much that is closely related to this ailment. Closest thing I can find is meniscus tears or possibly mcl s but it doesnt seem to fit those descriptions. It almost feels Like my knee pops out of place then i have to open my leg to get it to "pop back in"

    I was doing a stunt in my summer gymnastics class when I lost my balance and fell hard on my leg. Turns out I broke my tibia and fibula. Now I've got this huge bright pink cast from my toes to mid thigh. I have to wear it for 12 weeks and use crutches. I'm 17 and this is my first ever cast. How can I shower and get around? Will I be able to swim? Do you think I should cover my toes or not? Also the crutches are really hurting my arm pits, what can I do about that? Any tips are great. Thanks.

  • Did I break my toe?

    I just fell off a chair (how stupid) and fell on my toes (if that makes sense. I think i bended it) and it really hurts. I can't walk on it and if I try any way then it hurts so much. I have an ice pack on it now and still have trouble walking because it hurts so much. Is it sprained?

    I suffered a mild concussion on May 1st (almost 7 weeks ago), and I have seen absolutely no improvement. If anything, it's gotten worse. My biggest and worst symptom is the headaches. Constantly I have terrible headaches that don't seem to go away, and no medicine will work. I am suffering in school, and it's very hard for me. Everyday is hard, and I always feel terrible with these headaches. They used to feel better some days, but now they are 24/7. This concussion is ruining my life, and I've had to turn down so many things because of it. I have talked to my doctor, but they don't know either. Can anyone help me and tell me when I will see improvement?? This concussion Is ruining my life.

  • Shoul I see a doctor about my ankle pain?

    Best answer: It's probably a sprain. Put ice on it, then put on a tight elastic bandage. If that doesn't relieve the pain, it's worth getting it X-rayed, but the chances are that it will fix itself in a couple of days. In the mean time, walk, don't run.

    I was in an accident a year and a half ago. I was 18 then. I got a job as a stocker soon after the job. Long story short my moms guilt trip, fear and everything kept me from quitting my job to recover. I also got screwed over by my lawyer and doc. I only got $2000 in compensation and I only visited the chiropractor which did nothing. The pain kept getting worse. Now I'm always in pain. I have a very high pain tolerance, but the fear that my back is messed up is driving me insain. I have tried every treatment I can myself. And have gone to the doctor but only could afford the basic muscle relaxers and crap. I really cant sleep which adds to the pain and energy drain. I quit my job. Now I'm completely broke, cant afford the doctor and my mom wont help me. I dont go home anymore anyways I've been basically living at my friends. My mom sais she has no money to help but I know she's lieing... but whatever. Is there some way I can find out whats wrong with my back? I was thinking could I go to the ER or something. My back hurts most in the thorasic area. Im pretty sure Its a muscle prob.

    We were watching a movie on the couch and he put my arm around me so I was gonna jokingly do it to him and I accidentally caught his eye with my fingernail (I wear fake nails so they’re especially long and sharp). It hurt him really bad at first, obviously, and I just told him to keep it shut, but now it’s been about thirty minutes and he still can’t open it and his eyes are still watering. I don’t know what to do? I feel really bad and he’s still in a lot of pain. I tried to look at it to see if I could see a scratch or anything, but he really can’t keep it open. Should I take him to the doctor or something? Or should I wait? What should we do about his eye, if it is scratched? He’s trying to sleep right now, but he says it hurts too bad :(

  • Do I need to go to the doctor?

    Best answer: Well, it's not heat exhaustion-- that would be apparent immediately, not 12 hours later. A bad sunburn alone can cause a low grade fever & probably explains why you generally feel like crap. As with any burn, there's really nothing a doctor can do. The damage has already been done, so all you can do is... show more

The damage has already been done, so all you can do is care for the damaged skin & try to prevent pain. Use aloe vera or lotion and take aspirin/ibuprofen to help with inflammation.

    I am russian immigrant living in Miami and I work in construction. I broke both my legs in unrelated accident, my girlfriend drove me to hospital and doctor said my injuries were inconsistent with what he saw on exray. I am on bed rest but police are asking question, my girlfriend and I are expecting twin boys but I don t want to make any people involved in my accident angry. I was hurt because my second job involves me collecting money. I tried to collect money from guy but he had friends who helped him beat me up. it was me vs 4 other guys, as a result I have two casts past my knees, and Im not working right now. The doctor said these injuries were consistent with beating.

    I severely broke my arm around 6 weeks ago and I've been in a full arm cast since. Currently, my cast is so disgusting, its become unbearable for me & anyone in the same room as me. The smell is RAMPANT. However, I spoke to my orthopedist and he said that he cannot remove the cast for at least another 3-4 weeks because it is in a very critical position for healing. I almost feel like taking the cast off myself because its become so unbearable.

    So I have a pretty good laceration in the arch on my foot and it runs up the side of my foot. it’s good size, and pretty deep to the point it pulled some fatty tissue out, enough that they couldn’t just cut off it had to be stuffed back in. luckily though it’s just a flesh wound, no tendons cut or anything. However, 3 internal stitches and 7 external. Some of them are right bc the fat was trying to poke out. Anyway my parents are scaring me telling me if I don’t walk on it really soon it will always be tight there and it will always hurt bc I have to ‘stretch it out’ while it’s healing. Well it’s like day 8 and I can sort of walk on it without it hurting too bad but only for short short periods before it becomes painful. I scare myself thinking I’m gonna reopen the stitches or something bc it will start to pulse and hurt.

    Hi all. Last Sunday I copped a knee right in between my ribs directly into my stomach. This happened mid air while playing football and when I hit the ground I went out cold. When I woke the only pain I complained of was in my ribs, however when I went to hospital the only area they were interested in checking were my internals, thus discovering I had tears in my liver, stomach and pancreas which took all of the attention away from my ribs. All though I’m still in pain due to my tears, the only place still properly sore to tough is a certain spot on my right rib cage. I’m experiencing shortness of breath, pain whilst breathing and the area is tender. All though I know the rib is not cracked or broken, is it possible there’s a minor fracture? Cheers
