Could anyone give me advice on this-multiple issues-but the one causing the most pain is this one. Recently, I twisted my knee while bending over the bathtub-didn't think anything about it at the time but since then I have chronic knee popping and whenever I walk on it it doesn't hurt at the time of walking but rather waits until nightfall and then it is constant pain all night long-it is disturbing my sleep big time and now I feel it is causing depression. This is my right leg. Also several years ago I fell and hurt my right hip but because I was the only one earning money in my family I chose to ignore it and have had problems with it ever since-could this be related to the knee thing? Last but not least I am having problems with skin lesions-eventually they do heal but it sometmes takes months-the ones on my right leg now were mosquito bites but are now infected. I have one in my hair and one on my neck and a large one on my left shoulder. any ideas? I do not have medical insurance-have recently had my car repossessed and looks like I am losing everything else-can't afford medical treatment at all. any help would be appreciated!

Have you looked for a doctor's office for low income individuals? When I didn't have medical insurance I found an office that charged patients based on their income. It was such a relief! If I were you, I'd call around and ask about rates based on patient's income because it sounds like you need to be seen by a medical professional ASAP. I hope that was helpful & I hope you feel better soon!
