Hello doctor,

I am a 25-year-old male. I have been experiencing some tense pains in my inner thighs (near groin area). It is not everyday but still lingering. Also, every couple of months I do feel a pain in the back of legs like muscle pain (I did an MRI for my lower spine and nothing was found). A doctor told me it could be stress and that the quads can at times tense up.

Another symptom I have been experience are dizzy spells (like once a day) it last 15 seconds but it feels as though my head is light and my vision is not blurry but still light. I do see clearly, just weird. What do you think it may be? I am a teacher and I do stand a lot throughout the day. And I am hypoglycemic, I have been taking Proglycem 200 mg morning and 100 mg at night since I was born. I am becoming semi-hypochondriac with this stuff.

Get your blood sugar re-tested and this should be done once a month or at least once on three months and the dose adjusted accordingly. Drink plenty of water, fluids. Keep a candy/ lemon water with little salt and sugar handy and take sips often. Avoid, if you can, prolonged standing or take intermittent breaks and sit down. Get CT head done. Rule out any eye sight change. Get ophthalmic examination for vision. Lots of green vegetables, fresh fruit. Fresh juice, salad, soup, etc. Avoid excessive tea, coffee, fried, oily, fatty, alcohol, non-veg foods. Drink 2 glasses of water in the morning empty stomach after you get up. Avoid placing arm under head while sleeping, lie straight, use a low cotton pillow, avoid excessive stress strain, rigorous excercise. Walk and do yoga as health permits and start gradually.
