My girlfriend's been suffering with a troublesome right leg for many months now.
OK, NORMALLY MOST HAVE TROUBLE WITH THE LEFT LEG!
It started when she was running with new shoes and a few days later her leg swelled up significantly.
It's been accompanied by swelling and a blue/gray discoloration.
DON'T LIKE THE COLOR CHANGE, WOULD SUGGEST LOSS OF A LITTLE BLOOD, ETC. OR SOMETHING BROKE?
Thinking it was fractured, she got a bone scan done and everything looked solid. A later MRI showed that her tendons were inflamed. They called it tenosynovitis.
WELL, THE MRI THING DID MORE DAMAGE THAN SHE REALY HAD AND IF SHE HAD TO PAY FOR THAT, JUST THINK HOW MANY PEOPLE SHE COULD HAVE HELPED IN LIFE WITH SUCH $$$$, BUT MANY TIMES INSURANCE OR THE TAX PAYER PAYS THE BILL, SO THE PATIENTS CONTINUE. IF THE PATIENT HAD TO PAY, 80% OF ALL DOCTORS/NURSES WOULD BE HOMELESS OVER NIGHT.
Anyway, it's been going on for about 5 months now.
NOW YOUR TALKING CRAZY..............................
Every time she does any exercise or walks for too long, it swells up.
OK, AGGRIVATED EASILY
My first thought was BF&C, but not sure how effective that would be for tendons.
Any suggestions to help speed up the healing process?
STOP THE MEDICAL, UNLESS SHE WANTS SOME SERIOUS DISEASE FOR STARTERS.
WHAT IS HER AGE/WEIGHT, HAD ANY KIDS, ETC....DOES SHE SMOKE? I WILL TAKE A WILD GUESS THAT SHE IS YOUNG AND SLIM SINCE SHE IS A GIRLFRIEND AND WAS A RUNNER, BUT YA NEVER KNOW NOW A DAYS, SHE COULD BE 80 YEAR OLD GREAT GRANNY!
TAKE A PENCIL OR PEN OF SIMILAR OBJECT AND TAP EACH TOOTH, IF YOU FIND ONE THAT HURTS, IT COULD BE THE TROUBLE. I HAVE SEEN LEGS SWELL SO LARGE THAT THE PERSON WAS UNABLE TO WALK AND IT WAS CAUSED BY AN INFECTED TOOTH THAT NEVER REALLY HURT, UNTIL A WISE DOCTOR TAPPED THEM ALL AND THEY PULLED THE ONE THAT HURT AND THE SWELLING WENT DOWN THE SAME DAY AND NEVER CAME BACK AND YES, WHEN IT DID SWELL, IT STARTED IN ONE DAY, CAME FAST!
OTHERWISE, ANYONE OF THE CIRCULATION ISSUES COULD APPLY. I WOULD SEE A GOOD CHIROPRACTOR DAY 1 IT HAPPENED, THE MEDICAL THING WAS A DISASTER AS YOU DISCOVERED.
A HURT LEG NEEDS REST, WHILE MEDICAL IS RETARDED ON SUCH ISSUES AND OVER WORKS AN INJURY.
ODDS ARE MY CHIROPRACTOR CULD HAVE FIXED THIS IN 1 VISIT IF IT WAS BONE RELATED/MUSCLE, ETC...
"IF" SHE BUYS A BOTTLE OF SPRAY III AND TAKES A BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURE AND SENDS IT TO ME ON E-MAIL, I WILL GIVE HER A FREE BOTTLE NEXT TIME SHE ORDERS ANYTHING, BECAUSE I FIGURE SPRAY III WOULD MAKE HER PAINFREE IN ABOUT 2 MINUTES AND SOLVE THE PROBLEM IN LESS THAN ONE BOTTLE, JUST MY GUESS WITH OUT KNOWING HER TRUE PROBLEMS.
