I am a 14 year old girl and almost a week ago my hip popped while I was stretching. I’ve tried having baths and stuff but it hasnt worked. It still really hurts (in fact its gotten a bit worse) and I dont know what may have happened to it. What may I have done and what should I do to help?

A relatively common condition among young athletes is iliopsoas tendonitis. Much like you are describing, the condition presents with a popping/snapping sensation and audible sound of 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.

My husband 73, is on Lasix and for three days failed to take his lasix and last night had a pain in his big toe and when he looked at it it was very red and swollen and quite painful. He decided to take a half tasblet of lasix and later in the night unable to sleep decided to take another whole tablet and this morning felt fine and the redness and swelling in the big toe had disappeared so he felt it not necessary to see a doctor. I, on the other hand feel very uneasy and niow wonder what was the cause and should we treat it more seriously. Please advise soon. Thanks

Lasix is a diuretic that acts to decrease the free water content of the body. Typically, patients with congestive heart failure or poor peripheral circulation use lasix to decrease the swelling in the lower extremities. Lasix should be taken as prescribed to prevent lower extremity swelling so patients do not develop complications such as ulcers . . . → Read More: My husband 73, is on Lasix and for three days failed to take his lasix and last night had a pain in his big toe and when he looked at it it was very red and swollen and quite painful.

HI. I am having a lot of pain in between my right shoulder blade and spine area. The pain only occurs when i try to twist my upper body or move my right arm sort of behind me to “get” to something. This has been going on for 6 weeks and i cannot remember doing anything that would have caused this. It also hurts when i am bent over and take a deep breath. It is really annoying and i am not sure what to do about it. I am getting worried and nervous. Do you have any advice??

From what you are describing with the pain in the upper back localized around the shoulder blade points to an anatomic abnormality. One possible explanation is a glenoid-labrial cyst that has arisen from a past shoulder injury such as a torn labrum. These cysts are comprised of synovial fluid and cause irritation, inflammation, and pain. . . . → Read More: HI. I am having a lot of pain in between my right shoulder blade and spine area.

I have a rib cage question. My rib cage seems to be kinda cock eyed or tilted. my left side is sticking out about 3 inches and my right seems to be diviting in. I went to a x-ray center and they said that I may have cartilage built up on my right or could be some kinda genetic thing. Me and my brother are the only ones in the family to show this issue

The most common reason for a rib cage abnormality is scoliosis. Twisting of the thoracic spine may make one side of your rib cage appear to be asymmetric.

Another common chest wall abnormality is pectus excavatum which is a congenital abnormality that produces a caved in appearance to the chest. Some doctors believe there . . . → Read More: I have a rib cage question.

Hi, I am a 16 year old gymnast and have been experiencing a constant numb, tingling pain in my lower back, it is only on the right side and runs down until just above my knee cap. The pain is much worse when sitting but is always there, I have had it for a couple of days now but have ignored it as I am used to dealing with injuries with my sport. It seems to be getting worse now so would really appreciate some help.

The symptoms you are describing point to a neurologic cause. The pain in the lower back radiating to the knee cap is more likely to be due to a pinched nerve or a herniated lumbar disc than a pulled muscle.

Since the pain is worsening, you should be evaluated by your primary care physician . . . → Read More: Hi, I am a 16 year old gymnast and have been experiencing a constant numb, tingling pain in my lower back, it is only on the right side and runs down until just above my knee cap.
