My ankles are swollen since 10 days. Along with this, there is light and random pain in elbow joint, knee.. its not due to any injury for sure. We were suspecting it to be uric acid level problem. Today i got test done for uric acid n it has come 4.. which is normal. I am very scared as i have read on net that it cud be kidney/heart related problem. I m not getting which doctor to start with. I have booked an appointment for nephrologist for tommorow. But pls share me what series of doctors should i see for this.
I fell four days ago, when my foot planted my leg twisted and I felt my knee pop two times. I felt pain instantly and I was unable to walk soo I had help to my car and I went to the ER immediately. They did an X-RAY , and I was told that nothing was broken that it was just a sprain and to follow up with an orthopedic in a week if I still had problems! With the insurance I have I can only see a specialist if I had a referral from my PCP so I went to see my doctor and she was trying to examine my knee to see which ligament I tore but it was too much swelling and I am unable to bend it! Here it is four days later and my whole leg is swollen from my knee to my foot and I still can't bear any pressure on my leg. They gave me a knee immobilizer but it makes my knee so uncomfortable all I can wear right now is a wrap, could this be a ligament tear or is it just a small sprain if so would I need surgery? The ER doctor thought it was my meniscus.
I met with an accident a few days back and hurt right side of my lower back. The pain was slowly getting less intense as I applied icing and volini along with a capsule of becopsules daily.
But since morning as I woke up, the pain has increased a lot and seems to have spread to my lower back, making it difficult to sit, lie down or make movements.
What should I do and how serious it can get?
Last Monday I got injured and it is still not healed. I am feeling same pain but using knee bandage in hope muscle get repaired. I am able to walk but with discomfort.
I have got back pain suddenly. It is extremely painful. It subsided after taking pills but has not gone completely.
