I recently had a labral tear repair in my right shoulder due to an lifting injury at work. I am trying to claim this through my Aflac accidental policy. They are saying the Labrum is not a ligament. On Wikipedia, the glenoid labrum is also listed as glenoid ligament. I know that Wikipedia is not the best medical reference, but I am just trying to find out if it I am in the right or wrong here. I have searched on Google and it is difficult to find a definitive answer. Thank you.View Thread

I am only 26, and have Patellofemoral Syndrome. I am not an athlete, but I do stand/sit a lot for long periods on time. I also walk a lot and work out moderately on the elliptical. I started to do some weight lifting with my legs, to help build the muscles stronger, but I still have pain. I have seen my doctor, but I think I may have to go back. Since my visit about a month ago, my knees feel worse. The only time they feel some relief is while walking. This whole thing is new to me, and there doesn't seem to be a lot of info on it. I don't know of anyone else who has it, and would like to just know more. Anyone have any suggestions of what else to do to relieve the pain? Thanks.View Thread
I just started swimming daily after years of not having done so. I've stayed relatively fit for my age (64) by occasionally biking, hiking, going to the gym, swimming, and doing yoga. The only thing I've done with any regularity is yoga; the others were sporadic for months or even a year or two, but not continuous dedicated. Over the years, weight has accumulated around my waist and hips. One thing that is bothering me is I seem to be congested in the upper digestive tract. I also just noticed welts appearing in my quadriceps muscles. What dietary considerations and what pacing considerations should I keep in mind as I start this regime, one that i hope to keep for the rest of my life? Should I be concerned about these welts?View Thread

About six weeks ago, I injured a tendon or muscle deep in my right hip/buttock area by doing "pigeon pose" (what yoga instructors call a "hip opener") in a yoga class . I feel the pain most intensely when I get out of bed in the morning. As I start walking/moving around, it gets less noticeable, but it has not gone away. What can be done to heal this?View Thread
I am glad that you sent another message and that you will have insurance. I would definitely recommend seeing a primary care physician as soon as possible to get a full evaluation. You can then be referred to see any specialists if needed as well. It sounds like you could benefit from medical care at this time.
I too have recently suffered a chipped talus bone, and didn't see a doctor until 10 days later, thinking it was just a sprain, but after an xray a chip was found. at the moment I am wearing a moon boot, until a decision is made with the doctor and orthopaedist.....hopefully soon.View Thread
I have the symptoms of a Morton's neuroma, but it does not show up on any scans. So the doc (a highly regarded podiatrist at a hospital) says it's a pinched nerve. I also have peroneal tendinitis, post-tibial tendinitis, plantar fasciitis and arthritis, all in the same foot. I can barely walk. None of the therapies, injections, anti-inflammatories, etc. have helped. It's dragged on for over a year. Shouldn't I consider surgery at this point?View Thread
My MRI scan coincidentally revealed a 4mm cavernoma in the pons. I am in early 30s, asymptomatic, the cavernoma has never bled (to my knowledge + MRI did not show any hemorrhage). I have been running for at least 10 years about 3 times a week (average 30 min). My neurologist said I should not change my lifestyle, but I also read comments in forums where people have reported that they have been advised to exercise less.
- Should I continue running and exercising, run and exercise with less strain or stop completely? - What are some studies that have been done to show how exercise affects cavernomas that haven't bled before?

Was doing 1-Arm Row with a heavy weight (one I've been using....nothing new) and in the middle of my 3rd set, I got a shooting pain through the palm of my hand and up my ring finger and was forced to drop the weight.
I can use my hand for the most part, but am very sore on the outside of my wrist and have trouble turning my hand.
My doctor thinks it was a fascia tear in my elbow, as there was a little bit of bruising. However, there is no pain in my elbow whatsoever.
I am a trainer and was being very mindful of form. I didn't twist my hand or arm during the row and I can't image what I have done, but icing and ibuprophen is not helping. Any ideas what I may have done? Or how long it may be to heal?View Thread
My daughter in law has had 3 surgeries (2 open surgeries & one lapriscopic in the last 10 years. Her shoulder keeps falling out and she is in a lot of pain most of the time. Her tendons in her shoulder are failing and she was told by her doctor that she needs to find a surgeon to hopefully, correct her condition with the insurance to which she subscribes. Recently a doctor told her that her tendons are close to breaking. Do you know of any surgeon the United States could replace tendons with some type of material...my daughter in law lives in Oregon and the doctors she has seen won't touch shoulder because if a mistake is made, her tendons will turn black and fail. Is there anyone out there who would be able to help her????View Thread
So I have had many of opportunities to bruise right because I play rugby league. I've just recently been kneed in the shin so hard that my whole leg from my knee to my ankle swelled like a balloon pretty much instantly, I even got asked, have you rolled your ankle? It's huge. But no my ankle is fine! Anyway, I get the pain, can hardly walk and what have you but none what so ever discolouration. Why do I never bruise and other people don't even know what their bruises are from they appear that easy? I don't eat healthy Although I am still small and fit/toned. Help I'm so intrigued!!! Plus I'm sick of looking like a sook when I say I'm sore and have no visable proof! ðŸ˜View Thread
For what it's worth, I had PF for quite a while and found that my Birkenstock sandals were the only thing that gave me relief. I wore them all the time, even to bed! And it eventually healed on its own....good luck.View Thread
Actually looking for the best route for treatment. The PCL is torn away from the bone, and a piece of the bone came off with it. My Dr. says to" let it heal on its own. It won't ever be perfect, it will be sloppy and my knee may give out on me and I could fall". So I will have to strengthen my muscles. I have a knee brace for approx. 6-8 weeks. Upon healing he will do surgery to repair the damaged meniscus. I'm concerned. I don't want to go through life with a sloppy knee. Has anyone had this type of injury? Treatment? long term results? I don't understand how a ligament which, in it's natural state is stretchy when attached at both ends, can just heal wherever it lies and the outcome will be good.View Thread

I exercise 5 days a week (weights & cardio); however am subject leg cramps while sleeping. To address that I take a daily magnesium supplement. Last night woke up with cramp in right calf and tried "flexing" my foot back & forth to get rid of the cramp. I instantly had "pop" and followed by a sharp pain in the belly of the muscle. I got out of bed and found I had intense pain trying to walk - have to walk straight legged (body weight only on my heel). Any thoughts as to what may be going on?View Thread
I go to the gym three times a week. I use the machines and power walk on the treadmill. While stretching on the machines I felt a pain on my inner thigh. I ignored it and walked on the treadmill for 3 miles. I began to get a pulling pain across the pelvis and groin area. I had also been doing stretching exercises on a matt, where I would put my legs together and bring them up and then down slowly which pulled on my stomach. I recently have been experiencing a strong pinching sensation behind my and under the left buttocks, it then becomes so strong that I cannot walk. I have applied heat and cold to no avail. I also notice if I walk too long it begins and if I sit on a hard surface for a certain amount of time it starts to hurt again. I am at my wits end, my doctor took X-rays and nothing showed. What can I do to identify this and possible correct it.View Thread
My 12 year old son was at soccer training and felt a pop in his leg. The hospital said he sprained his knee. However, the pain is not in his knee but more like the are below it. I tool him to an orthopedic doctor and was told that the x rays showed no breaks or sprains and the pain could be from over use? Anyone hear of this>View Thread
