Undiagnosed Symptoms :: Cramp And Heat Sensation In Back Of Lower Leg

Oct 9, 2014

for about a week i have had periodic "heat flashes" in the back of my right leg from the foot to the back of the knee.  Not painful, but odd sensation like hot compress being applied.  happens 8-10 times a day when i am sitting or standing.  Had a severe leg cramp, charlie horse, about 1 1/2 weeks ago so thought symptoms might be related.  went to my MD who told me no danger of blood clot (would be very severe pain, swelling, hot to touch).  said probably related to leg cramp and advised me to do more walking (i sit in an office chair all day) and to  do exercises consisting of pushing left down down as far as it will go for 5 seconds, then arching up for 5 seconds, for 10 times.  She likely due to spasms and  that hot flash is due to when blood vessels stop dilating (???). I will try this recommendation for one week and will let you know, but I am not very confident that this will work.This discussion is related to Strange feeling of heat in my leg.

(Age 18-24) Pregnancy :: Spasm And Cramp With Pulling In My Right Lower Back?

I am 8 weeks pregnant tomorrow, yay! I had 2 miscarriages last year and this would be my first baby so every little thing is making me panic slightly! I had an internal scan at 7 weeks and we saw a little jellybean with a heart beating it was amazing! Sonographer was very happy with how everything looked so that took a weight off my shoulders.

However for the past 2 days I have been getting these slight cramps/muscle spams in my right Lower back.. I'm not sure if it's where I sit at a computer all day or where I've been driving or maybe even slept funny but it's starting to worry me. It feels as though my muscle just along my waistline on my back is being pulled and stretched. It doesn't happen all the time just every now and then.

Undiagnosed Symptoms :: Chest Pain With Floating Sensation During Sleep

Night before last I woke up 9-10 times with the sensation you get when you drive over a large bump in the road too quickly, or when you pass over the high points of a roller coaster.  I'm wondering if my heart is skipping a beat, or have I stopped breathing and I'm waking up trying to catch my breath?  I've had some issues with chest pain lately, and they haven't found anything yet.  They still have to do the stress test and ultrasound.  Has anyone else experienced the "floating" sensation I am talking about?  It's strong enough that it wakes me up.

Lower Back :: Electric Current Sensation Triggered By Some Kind Of Movement

Randomly during the day, triggered by some kind of movement I will get a sort of electric current sensation always starting in my lower back and spreading to my arms and legs. Never above the neck. Sometimes only the left side of my body, sometimes only the right side.  I could also describe it as the feeling you get when you cut circulation off your arm from sleeping on it wrong, and when you wake up and move it so that the blood flows freely again, that kind of numb tingling you get.  It kinda feels like that throughout my whole body. It usually last about 30 seconds and can happen several times a day.  Anybody with any ideas? this has been going on for years, and has become more frequent.

Levothyroxine Sodium :: Heat Rash, Allergies, Hay Fever Symptoms

I have been taking Levothyroxine for about 8 months now and since then I seem to be suffering from increasing allergies. I already suffered with Hay Fever during the months of May and June but suddenly I started being allergic to my rabbits. I knew I was allergic to their hay but not the rabbits themselves. The doctor gave me an inhaler for when I needed to use it if I inhaled some of the rabbit fur as I found I was struggling to breath. I then started to be very sneezy at night and in the mornings sometimes sneezing up to about 15 times which is quite wearing. Then my skin started to start feeling really itchy all the time. I went to the doctor and he said that it should not be down to the levothyroxine and prescribed me some antihistamines to take to see if that settled the allergies. I am now getting a heat rash which seems to appear when I exert some energy. I am not talking about a great deal of energy though just a brisk walk or so and the rash starts on my chest and raises up past my ears. Today the rash was even on my legs and my fingers swelled so much that I had to quickly remove my jewellery. Has anyone else experienced this?

Lower Back Pain / Numb Lower Legs

I have had lower back pain for months now which goes hand in hand with numb lower legs, pain and discomfort really bad in the morning when waking, so much so I get up and have to stretch on my exercise mat to get relief. The veins in the lower legs in the morning really stand out. I saw the doctor who said it was lower back pain causing the numbness in the legs but the circulation seemed ok. I wanted a scan to see what the problem is as the pain can be bad, but he said they don't do back scans no point? The pain is often bad and I sit with a hot water bottle. I am 60 years old.

Undiagnosed :: Numbness In Groin And Lower Legs

I've been having numbness in my testicle and groin area since having a colonoscopy about three weeks ago. The groin will get so numb I can barely feel my rectum area and occasionally I have numbness also in left or right leg from the knee down to the feet. I also have a dull pain in the testicles whenever I urinate while sitting. When either leg is numb it actually affects the way I walk. I had a CT Scan last week and it showed bulging disk. Doc wants me to do another CT Scan tomorrow of a different angle. Any clue to what might be going on? I also have arthritis in just about every joint.

Back Pain After Clicking/popping Sound In The Lower Middle Back

Two days ago I was in the gym exercising my shoulders and whilst I was lifting weights, I moved my back whilst seated and I heard a 'click' sound in my back, followed by pain in that area of my lower middle back. I immediately stopped exercising and haven't gone to the gym since.

I don't know what I was thinking by moving my back like that, but since it happened there is a lot less pain and it feels like the pain may be totally gone in the next 48-72 hours hopefully.

On the night of the injury I found it hard to turn onto my side when in bed, but now I can do it without any problems. Now I can only feel some pain when I turn my upper body to the left or right or if I try to stretch my lower back.

Would anyone be able to give me some advice such as what type of injury I have or whether this may have a long term effect? Is it a very positive sign that the pain is decreasing each day?

Back Issues :: Pinched Nerve Or A Lower Back Strain?

I was doing a yoga pose (a torso twist hold which is where you lay on your back bring both legs up in the air then bring them down with your knees/legs tucked and torso twisted on opposite side) when I accidently dropped mid twist too quickly and hurt my lower back, the pain on a scale of 1-10 is about a 2-3, so a dull aching. Its localized and does not radiate down my thighs/legs or up to my neck. There's no shooting/stabbing pains and It also doesn't burn, or tingle (numbness). Could this be just a stretched/sprained back issue or a pinched nerve?. It also isn't tender to the touch at all.

Back Pain :: Left Side Back Pain, Middle To Lower Back

About 2 week's ago I took 2 perc within a night and the next day I got sick, I thought from the pills, but than I was nauseous and have been for the most part ever since. My left side mid to lower back started hurting approx a week ago and it's gotten much worse last night and now I'm having pain in my upper right abdomen as if the pain moved. I'm on muscle relaxers for my back already but it's not affecting/helping my new pain though and the new pain doesn't feel the same. I was just curious if anyone had any idea what it might be, some say kidneys but does that pain or can it move from my back to my abdomen?

Undiagnosed Symptoms :: Never Thirsty, Yet Always Dehydrated

Undiagnosed Symptoms :: Nausea / Exhaustion?

I am 20 years old and it's been at least 4 years since I started experiencing these symptoms. I am unable to perform normally in life (I have been struggling to live normal life up until now, I can't just take it anymore.) I'm from Czech republic so pardon my poor language skills.

These are symptoms I experience:

1) sore/stiff muscles, stiff neck, my muscles slightly hurt me when I stretch

2) being weak, tired, exhausted, feeling fatigue/nausea - nowadays basically to the point where I don't get up from bed whole day if I don't have to, this can go on for months even (when I have holidays)

3) permanently yellow/orange-ish stool no matter what food I eat. Eating fried food sometimes makes me feel worse. I think I also often go to the toilet - once every 3 hours. Similar for water: I drink usually 3 litres a day through the day and my bladder hurts me very slightly all the time - the more I drink, the more it starts to hurt.

4) symptoms as if I had mild cold all the time - permanently stuffy nose, sweating (it goes like this - I start to feel cold but when I get into warm environment, I start to sweat)

5) visual snow, feeling dreamy (aka depersonalization/derealization)

6) generally unspecified weird/unpleasant/painful sensations across whole body

Symptoms never go away, no matter how much I rest (when I don't rest, it obviously worsens them a lot).

Cold weather feels very bad to me so symptoms probably get little worse when its fall/winter.

I have undergone mononucleosis over a year ago, but as I said, I had the symptoms even before. It's however possible that mononucleosis worsened it.

I have been to several medical places during this year including gastroenterology (stool/blood/gastroscopy, ultrasound of my guts), oncology (blood test, it's known that I have 2 genes that make me more prone to cancer - family origin), immunology (blood test) and infections department (blood test).

All the results were negative except the few that had border values - smooth muscle antibody and something that indicated that I must have undergone lyme disease some time ago. (and the results from oncology)

I tried taking vitamins, magnesium (with B6 and B12 vitamins or so) and supplement that supports liver function (contains choline and few other things). It does not do anything.

As of the fact that I must have undergone lyme disease some time ago, I was prescribed antibiotics for 15 days, I have been taking them for 7 days now but I don't feel any better. Well they make me feel somewhat fresher, but all  my symptoms persist.

I tried I think 2 or 3 kinds of probiotics but it did not help. I was also prescribed pills at gastroenterology to slower indigestion process (or something) 6 months ago, but I haven't started taking them yet.

Pots Like Undiagnosed Symptoms Cause A Enlarged Heart?

My fast heart rate (sinus tachycardia) started when i was about 17-18. I was a healthy active kid up until i got dropped from high school and i isolated myself from everyone except family and literally sat in a room playing video games all day everyday. Didnt eat much, not alot of water... I was sabotaging myself and i didnt even know it. I honestly was depressed. Then came pots. My heart was plummeting to around 100-300 bpm just from walking or attempting to walk. I felt really desperate and i bet the cause of my symptoms were lack of certain nutrients, magnesium, potassium... Etc. I went to a cardiologist, got a full workup and my heart looked 100 percent perfectly normal. I then tried beta blockers (big mistake) Metoprolol was not bad, but it gave me sharp chest pains so i got off it. Could it be that these sharp chest pains were caused by lack of potassium or magnesium while taking beta blockers, which was my heart telling me this is a mistake? Long story short... I was enormously uninformed on the effects of not getting enough magnesium, potassium, etc for the heart. I would have never tried meds. The cardiologists i went to didn't even acknowledge that or test me for low levels. I didnt have a pcp at the time. Its almost 1 year later and im still in the same boat. But now, my heart does not beat the same. Compared to before, it feels as if my heart has a much more forceful and stronger pump. Which would indicate a enlarged heart, or possibly heart block? Growing up i had absolutely no awareness of my heartbeat... Even when i use to exercise. That feeling feels so distant now because it feels like im getting 24/7 palpitations. I could feel my heart all the time and i now have high blood pressure, and i didn't have this before. Will my heart ever be the same again? It feels as if i completely sabotaged my heart and precipitated heart problems that i didn't have.

Undiagnosed Symptoms :: Long Term Edema

If a patient has long term generalized edema (pitting in the legs), what are the other possible diagnostic alternatives, after heart, kidney, liver and protein abnormalities have been ruled out? I've been struggling with this edema nonsense for several years, unremitting, and yet my docs are stumped when it come to diagnosis. I also have some GI motility and hormone stuff happening but they claim there's no connection between the two, although I do tend to get rid of excess fluid (through urination), on the rare occasions when my GI system seems to be functioning correctly

I'm 45 yr old male, no diabetes, thyroid usually normal range but flagged as mildly hyper at on few occasions, and low BP. I was very thin prior to the fluid retention, which averages between 20-30 pounds, by my estimation. I was also otherwise very healthy and active prior to these symptoms, but since becoming ill, I am often very fatigued and sleepy most days.
