I am occasionally having a pain in my left leg since the past year. And I think my legs are binding a little bit.
I am 28 year old male. I have back problem . I tried many exercises but no relief. Please told me what can I do?
I am a 31 year old male. From past couple of days, I do see a throbbing / pulsing in my left thigh. It is around 6 inch above the knee in the inner thigh. I am not having any pain however, this has been irritating me as it happens very frequently and randomly. I had my blood and urine works done recently and apart from borderline bilirubin levels, everything is normal. I don't drink and didn't have many liver issues, so not sure about the 1.3 bilirubin levels. Let me know what could be the reason for this and how to proceed. Any response would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

A doctor tell me that I have a spinal cord problem which is heritable which I got from my father. Is it true?
Whether you are an athlete or a ballet dancer, you will appreciate the importance of having a stable kneecap. Medically known as the patella, the kneecap is a triangular bone that connects the upper thigh to the lower half of the leg. It sits in a groove in the bottom of the femur (thigh bone). When the leg is bent, it stays within the groove. When the leg is extended, it provides support to the quadriceps muscles.
That being the case, a dislocation of the kneecap is a very common injury. Subluxation is a state where there is partial movement of the kneecap out of its position, thereby making the patient’s kneecap unstable. When it completely moves out of its place, it is known as dislocation. Whether you fall on your knees during a sport or have a fall from a bike or get injured during dance or aerobics, it is common to have a dislocated kneecap. Some people are prone to repeated dislocations.
The initial injury is very painful and there might also be damage to the surrounding structures. Other symptoms include:
Buckling of the knee, where your legs cannot support your body weight
Sliding of the kneecap to a side
Catching of the knee in the groove when trying to move it
Pain in the front of the kneecap with any activity
Painful while sitting
Swelling and/or stiffness of the knee joint
Crackling/creaking sound when trying to move the knee joint
Inability to straighten the leg
Though these sound scary, the good news is that in 90% of the cases, the knee returns to its position spontaneously. However, putting it back into its place is a simple and safe procedure and can be done by almost any seasoned medical practitioner. The first step is to confirm that the kneecap is indeed dislocated. This can be done by a combination of physical exercise and x-ray. If required, MRI can be used, but it is not required in most cases. Initial treatment would include the following steps in sequence:
Immobilizing the knee with splint by keeping the leg in a straightened position.
Calling for medical assistance immediately. They can replace the knee back in its position carefully (reduction). An injured kneecap can cause what is known as foot drop by putting pressure on the peroneal nerve. The toes drag on the ground, making it difficult for you to walk.
Use ice in the affected area for 15 to 20 minutes, and repeat after three to four hours throughout the day to reduce pain and swelling.
Surgical correction may not be required, if there is a damage to the ligament.
- Flat femur and/or tissue laxity can cause repeated dislocations, where physiotherapy and strengthening exercises are useful.
In cases of recurrent dislocation of patella, the patient is suppose to undergo a MRI. If the MRI shows that there is complete tear of medial patellofemoral ligament then a surgical correction is advisable because every single episode of dislocation of patella leads to injury to the cartilage which can further damage the joint.
