Conditions with symptom: 'unable to walk'

Try wearing Birkenstocks ... it fixed my plantar pain which is totally gone now!
I suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome. I was diagnosed over 2 years ago and have been unable to work since been signed off from work with only recently doing up to 8 hours a week. I am unable to do any activity or exercise hobby wise. I've been to several clinics and been apart of talking space which all have been no help to me. I'm fed up of always been tired and unable to lead a normal life!
I had a bad accident whereby I dislocated my knee, tore my ligaments and severed the patella. Recovery is slow as I got a dvt too. I was admittedly into hospital for ten days and thankfully I'm home now. Pain levels vary and my mobility is badly compromised. I walk with crutches and use a wheelchair outside the house. I would like to resume some sort of sex life with my husband but at the moment I seem unable to find a position that doesn't make my knee hurt. Any suggestions? At the moment I tend to satisfy my husband orally but find I am unable to receive due to the pain again. I'm concerned that when I finally do get back in the saddle I won't be able to perform as its been so long (10 weeks so far, and counting!) since we had intercourse.
My husbands legs ( from knees to ankle) are swollen. He is in so much pain that sometimes it's unbearable pain. He's been seen by the doctors who keep giving him special socks to wear to reduce the swelling, which it does for a couple of hours but then the swelling returns when he walks. He can't walk for long, can't stand for long. He has been advised by the doctor that he needs to keep his legs elevated. This can be tough as he works in an office. He's struggling to sleep as he's in constant pain. The doctors have now told him to lose weight to see if that maybe the cause, but he's unable to exercise as the swelling returns. His legs have now been swollen for 3 weeks he's been to see the doctor again who have now said they will refer him to have X-rays. He is struggling a lot. We have a 2year old daughter and she's missing out on having fun with her daddy. His right calf has discoloured, it's like a dark purple colour again the doctors can't do anything for him. He's gaining weight as he can't walk for long, he can't sleep at night, to get through the night he eats to try to ignore the pain. It is now affecting our marriage. Can you please help us. PLease help my husband, he is only 33, when this problem started 4 years ago he was told the doctors can't do anything, he was advised to maybe have his legs amputated. That is not an option. Please can you help him and diagnose him. The doctors have said they will register him disabled So that we can get financials help as he's unable to work for long hours.

I have really heavy periods which give me extremely painful cramps which make me vomit and faint a lot of the time. It means I sometimes can't go to work or school because I am unable to walk because of the pain or because I'm scared I'll faint on the way there. I also often have pain during sex. Is there anything I can do??
Go to a gynocologist specializing in dysmenorrhea right away. I also struggle with this, it took me 9 years to get proper diagnosis and treatment in the form of Ponstel. I would be sick and vomit like you, it is truly debilitating. I had been to 5 other gynos telling me to drink tea, stop complaining as "every" woman has this, one even told me to get pregnant. Finally, my recent one is a huge help and has given me answers.
Yes, get to the doctors - tell them your symptoms and insist it's debilitating and it can't continue. I had to take 3 trips to the doctors, before I really got irritable with him and explained I'd had far too much time off work and that my symptoms weren't normal for me!! I did have to go through a rigmarole of STI testing and scans to rule out cysts and infections before I was referred for a laparoscopy, but once I'd got that and my treatment was in the hands of the hospital I started to get results. Sometimes you need to push a bit, those were some of the symptoms of my endometriosis so it definitely needs ruling out!
I have an infected verruca on the ball of my foot. I have been on anitbiotics for 8 days and it is getting no better. I am unable to walk on my foot as it is so painful. The infection and swelling goes up to my toe next to the little toe. I attended my GP who sent me to A & E, They told me i needed to go back to my GP and get a refferal to podiatry. I am now told this could take over a week or more for my appointment. Please is there anything else i could do.
I am 39 year old female and since having my third child 4 years ago I seem to leak urine around the time of ovulation. When I am ovulating it is very painful sometimes resulting in my being unable to walk. Can anyone throw any light as to why I only leak around this time of the month. I am not overweight (height 5ft9in and 9 1/2 stone) Cheers.
I am unable to go for a poo as inside my anus there Is a lump .. I went to my doctor and he done a check and couldn't find anything ! Yet I am still unable to go to the toilet as this pink lump is in the way what shall I do ?
Hi I had this in 2009 and was told it was an anal polyp by the hospital I attended, I could'nt poo either and it is very worrying when you don;t know. I had it surgically removed, they also fixed an anal fissure and 3 heamorroids I had and did'nt know as they were internal, go back to the doctor or try another one at your surgery as this needs to be fixed

I have multiple bowel movements throughout the day. The stools are thin, sometimes they have one side which is angular rather than round. I never feel that my rectum is completely empty and my vagina hurts after I have defecated, as though it were somehow attached to the rectum. I am kept awake at night by the pain from both vagina and rectum. Alternatively, if I have diarrhoea instead, my vagina then feels as though it is being stung by stinging nettles and I am unable to walk for the rest of the day.
Hey. I'm 23 with no kids or anything and I have exactly the same symptoms as you and I have been through all the tests (colonoscopy, defecating proctogram, anal manometry etc.) They concluded that I have rectal prolapse and rectocele, which basically means the rectum is prolapsing into the vagina. It can be fixed. In my case it looks like I'm having ventral rectopexy. Don't panic and look online forever until it gets worse, which is exactly what I did. Just go to the doctor go through the motions and they'll sort it out. Definitely too uncomfortable to carry on living with my love!
