<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swelling</span> and ankle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> can be caused by a variety of causes. I agree with the treatment for DVT. Other potential causes can be infection, osteoarthritis, sprains or bursitis. Imaging the joints can be considered with, first, a plain film, and second, an MRI can be considered. If negative, more systemic causes can be considered, including evaluating the kidneys with blood tests, and the heart with an echocardiogram. These options can be discussed with your personal physician.

My dear, your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swelling</span> is most likely due to the fact that you require a knee replacement.

Also, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause(s) for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>leg</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swelling</span>.

Since then i have pain, swelling and trouble putting weight on the left leg.
Now I am dealing with (especially in my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span>) constant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swelling</span>. Some days it just hurts to stand on it. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swelling</span> seems to never go away and walking up stairs is painful. The pain seems to be located under my knee cap. I don't know if it has to do with the calcium that I was told was building up or I am just getting old and it's arthritis. It is also painful to sit with my legs bent. I plan on making an appointment with a local orthopedic soon.
