My mom is 65 years old and a little overweight. She says that her right calf muscle hurt – she feels warmth and heat when she stands. She has been experiencing this problem since Saturday (February 17, 2013). Should she be concerned and seek medical attention immediately or see a Doctor in the morning.

A common cause of calf pain is poor circulation.
However it can be caused by overuse, or even hardening of
Your mom is at the age where it might not be a bad
idea to have a doctor check it, just to be safe.

I believe I pulled muscle when I was running. The pain is in the arch of my foot and everytime I walk or stand I just feel a pain. I wanna try some ways to take care it at home before I go to a doctor.
When you pull a muscle there really isn’t much you can do, it just takes time to heal. You just need to take it easy, but don’t baby it. If you baby it, it could possibly make the injury worse then it originally was. For example, do some stretches and stretch out that muscle. But defiantly go to the doctor to get it looked at. Hope this helped -Mila

Ive been to the doctor and hes just given me pain killers and diazepam which is supposed to relax my muscles. Ive had the pain for nearly 3 weeks and its not getting any better.. should I go and see a chiropractor?
I dont know what spinal stenosis is.. the doctor just said a disk had slipped back and trapped a nerve.
I to have had a slipped disc. The pain and spasm went down my leg, front and back. Then into my foot, over the front of the arch and the sole of my foot was numb. Sorry to say, that I couldn’t walk for the first four weeks. I went to an excellent Osteopath, who firstly was able to release a lot of the spasm, I gradually started to walk, still in pain. It took Eleven weeks in total. Do go to an Osteopath/Chiropractor. Ensure they are well qualified. It will hurt to have the treatment, but worth it in the end. I know you feel it will go on for ever, but it does get better. Stay positive, move as much as you can without causing more problems. My thoughts are with you.

Help me to rid this throbbing back pains, please i need no medicine or pain killers.
It could be anything, nerve problem, muscle problem or a number of other things…It is impossible to answer your question without knowing what the actual problem is. Go to your Doctor and have him/her send you for a CT or MRI scan.
The wrong type of treatment or exercises can do more damage than good and you need to have your back properly diagnosed prior to ANY treatment.
Again you do need to have a CT / MRI scan or such done before allowing ANYONE to touch your back.
Get a professional opinion from the radiologist doing the scan in his report to your doctor and then go from there.

My dad is currently on blood pressure medicine and cholesterol medicine. He recently pulled something in his back and can verily walk. Would it affect him if he was to take a muscle relaxer to relieve the pain. He wont go to the doctor for he dont want to miss work. Thanks for any suggestions and comment.
Call your pharmacist and ask them the question, tell them what he is taking for the bp and cholesterol and ask if it would be ok to take the muscle relaxer, give them the name of it and if there would be any interactions.
In the mean time your dad can try either heat from a heating pad and if that doens’t help he could try an ice pack, 10 minutes on 10 minutes off, he should try the ice first to try to alleviate the swelling, heat would be to relax the muscles. But its one or the other, not both ok, depending on which one makes him feel better.
he will have to be rather stationary for awhile to give this time to heal up.

For some reason, every once in a while I get pain in my lower rib cages for some reason. It hurts when i talk, or when I try to flex my abdominal muscles. The days before theses pains i usually go through a lot of exercise such as running, could this be the cause? Should i go to the doctor or will it go away on its own?
The pain could be from costochondritis– an injury to the rib cartilage. Patients often come into the ER with it. You can get it in the cartilage in the sternum or the sides of your ribs. Can happen during lifting something. If this is the cause the pain and injury will get better but try not to reinjure it. Try a rib belt if you can get ahold of one to see if the rib support helps.
