Pain In The Legs To The Thighs?
Hello wr.wbOK, I want to ask. My father’s leg hurts on the left side from toe to thigh and feels pain. The feet are not swollen, only feel sore and sore. Already treated and given osteanat medicine if I’m not mistaken that is taken once a week. I have checked into several hospitals to see a specialist in bones and joints, but the results are the same, only the administration of the medication is different, but it has not yet healed. Is the pain a hereditary disease? Thank you.
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Complaints of pain in the leg that your father experienced, can occur because of several possible diseases, including:
Viral, bacterial or fungal infections in the joints
And it could also be several other conditions depending on the results of the examination. Your steps to see a bone specialist doctor so far have been very appropriate, but if the complaint does not improve, you should ask the doctor who treats your father why this can happen. Do not switch doctors even though the medicine does not directly benefit. Control back to the doctor should not only be to take the same drug, but also to see the impact of drug administration so far. If the drug does not provide maximum benefit, the drug must be increased in dose, added, or replaced. Furthermore, if after a periodic examination it turns out there is a role for other conditions, such as neurological disorders which the neurologist should treat, your father should be referred to a neurologist. If there is the influence of psychological disorders, it should also be handled by a psychiatrist.
Therefore our advice to you, go back to your father's orthopedic doctor who last treated him and this time ask what the disease is, the cause, and what the next treatment plan is due to the fact that the treatment given so far has not been successful. Do not immediately move to another doctor because you will only repeat the examination from the beginning again. You can also ask if there is a role for the disorder in other systems than what your doctor has found now.
Meanwhile, if your father is overweight, try to restore his weight to the ideal range, increase consumption of water, vegetables and fruit, avoid stress and cigarette smoke, avoid doing strenuous exercise and weight lifting, try to avoid going up and down stairs, and regular drug consumption. So, hopefully answering your question.
