Doctor, I have pain on my shoulder, sometimes it gets stiff. Usually I apply muscle balm. What medicine should I take? When do I need to see a doctor?
Doctor, I love playing futsal. Once, after a training session, my thigh was cramping. But then it got better. However, now my thigh hurts quite often, sometimes to the point when I can’t stand. I feel like something is pinching it. Is this still related to my cramp at the training session, Doc?
Doctor, is a recurring migraine dangerous? I often have migraines. Usually I just take medicines for my headache. Sometimes it hurts so much, but then it fades away naturally. When should I worry about dangerous migraines, Doc?
Good afternoon, Doc. I did an x-ray. The result showed lumbarization of S1. The symptoms I feel are pain from my butt to my feet, cramping feet, and stretched veins. It hurts so much.
Hello Dr. Timothy. I have trigeminal neuralgia and am currently under treatment. The pain I feel on some spots of my face is like an electric shock. Usually I feel it if I walk faster and sit in a moving vehicle. The doctor said my condition is not severe and surgery is unnecessary. It is true that I feel the pain is not overwhelming. But I want to know, is this a normal condition that happens to elderly people like me (i am 60 years old) and can it be totally cured?
Doctor, why do I often feel dizzy and my feet feel weak? I've been taking medicines from my doctor but it is not totally cured.
Doctor, my fingers are stiff and it is painful to straighten them up. The pain even radiates through my palm. I often feel an electric shock in my fingers. And every morning when I wake up, I feel my hands and fingers are stiff. What is the solution, Doc?
Doctor, my hip often hurts. Sometimes the pain at my right stomach radiates through to my back. What is the medicine?

Doc, what is the cause of a persistent cramp on my calf? I am only 27 years old, but if I walk some distance, my calf cramps up.

Doctor, what is likely the cause of pain in the back of the head, near the ears?
The soles of my feet hurt when I walk, like as though there is something stabbing me, although I only walk inside the house. Why is this so, Doc? I don’t have uric acid problems.
