The most common types of pain in a 28 year old female are genitourinary or musculoskeletal in origin. Menstruation, ovarian cysts, or infections (pelvic or urinary) can all produce the pain you are describing. Injuries or excessive exercise to the hip joint and associated muscles/ligaments can also produce the pain you are describing. . . . → Read More: Im 28 and been having dull pain in my lower pelvic area more on my left side but I feel it on my right just not as strong I feel it in my lower back its been a week now and no change any ideas of what it could be?

Sometimes I get knee pains and I can barely walk, usually when this happens I swell up right above my knee cap. What can this mean?

Given your young age, one of the most likely causes of your pain is Osgood-Schlatter Disease, otherwise known as “growing pains.” Osgood-Schlatter Disease is a benign condition and one of the most common causes of . . . → Read More: Sometimes I get knee pains and I can barely walk, usually when this happens I swell up right above my knee cap.

Hi doctor, I’d do appreciate it if you would kindly help me out. I am 30 years old female, about 5 months ago I fell on my left knee and twisted my knee. There was a popping sound and I couldn’t stand on my knee at all, I went to ER and they did an x-ray which showed no fracture. The pain continued and I went to a surgeon,he ordered MRI. The doctor, gave me two injections in joints and my knee was immobilized for 10 days and then I had PT for 20 sessions. The problem is that I still have pain on the side of my knee cap and it’s still swollen. I cant extend my knee fully as it’s really painful. Especially when I’m sitting and I try to lift and extend my leg it hurts so much that makes me cry.Also I’m experiencing muscle atrophy which really scaring me as my left leg looks thinner than my right leg. Please help me out and let me know what’s going on with my knee and what would be treatment options for me.

It appears you have a partial tear as well as bone bruising. Your major ligaments are intact, though, which is reassuring. However, bone bruising can take several months to heal. During the healing process, atrophy is to be expected but the muscle mass evens out over time as the patient recovers function of . . . → Read More: Hi doctor, I’d do appreciate it if you would kindly help me out.

I have a history of a compression fracture to the neck that happened 9 years ago. The broken neck resulted in a C7-C8 spinal cord injury. Recently I have had a lot of neck pain, spasms, and weakness in my arms and hands.(more then usual) My doctor has ordered a MRI to check my neck, she said to see if I have injured my neck again.(not long ago I had a fall where I could have possibly hurt my neck)

Both new and old injuries would show up on an MRI. Radiologists determine the age of the injury based on how the bone looks and what changes are seen. For example, old lesions become “sclerotic” and therefore appear more calcified than newer lesions. Newer fractures and injuries are also associated with adjacent soft . . . → Read More: I have a history of a compression fracture to the neck that happened 9 years ago.

A week ago my right hip popped while I was streching in gym. Eventually it got better but then it popped again the other day as well as today while I was dancing at a dance competition. It now really hurts to walk and to sit without it almost fully extended as well as to put pressure on it. The pain feels pretty deep. My parents never take me to the doctors so there’s no way I can go or take medication. What may I have done and what should I do to help it heal?

Iliopsoas tendonitis is a relatively common condition among young athletes. Much like the symptoms you are describing, the condition presents with a popping/snapping sensation and audible sound at the hip when extended or flexed. Pain and inflammation usually ensues.

The treatment of choice involves resting and icing the affected area while maintaining adequate hydration. You may take . . . → Read More: A week ago my right hip popped while I was streching in gym.
