Swollen knee leg and foot

Common Questions and Answers about Swollen knee leg and foot


Avatar_f_tn today, it is my right leg. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> and tender. Last night I had cramp in my right foot and ankle. I suffer from edema and am on Lasix, Spironolactone, and Diovan. Even with all of these meds, i still swell. As you can imagine I spend a lot of time on the john.
Avatar_f_tn IF that is what happened, I can DEFINITELY tell you that if you are experiencing problems with your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> that it CAN and DOES cause pain all up and down your leg. I've had 3 hip implants and the pain from the hip causes pain ALL the way down my leg. If you stop and think about it your entire leg is connected to your knee and therefore it WILL affect your entire leg.
Avatar_f_tn On saturday her right leg below her knee started to swell up and yesterday it was not only the calf and leg that were <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> but her ankle was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> too. today we went to the doctor and he sent her to get a dopler scan to see if there were any blood clots. She got the scans and there were no blood clots found. The lady who was doing the scan said that she saw a lot of fluid coming out of her joints and asked me if my mother had arthritis, which i confirmed.
Avatar_f_tn You will need nerve conduction studies along with neurological examination and examination of gait and position of foot while walking to diagnose foot drop. Please consult your orthopedic doctor or neurologist regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar_f_tn That pain seemed to be gone within a day, but since then I've had a strange feeling in my leg - a heavy sort of swollen feeling along with the muscles feeling tight and sore. today I woke up and my foot was tingling and that feeling has continued most of the day. About 3 days ago I had a sudden sharp pain in my shoulder then similar feelings in my arm as I've had in my leg. Coincidence? I've had back problems in the past but at the moment it doesn't seem to be bothering me.
Avatar_m_tn I fell down one month ago and had my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> almost broken. Fortunately, the consequence was a swelling olny, followed by a purple colour of retained blood on the internal side of the leg near the knee. Surprisingly, it disapeared and small parts of the purple could bee seen in the right side of my left foot arch. It seemed that the outcome of the fall was over without any medication.
Avatar_m_tn The bruising has now traveled down my whole leg and around my ankle/foot and is quite <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> and painful Im worried as what this could be. My leg is also painful not only in the area where I fell but around the back of my knee where i noticed a large lump a couple days ago. My ankle is very swollen as well. The arch of my foot also hurts. Help, should I seek medical attention or is this common after a fall. The bruising looks quite bad.
Avatar_n_tn From my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> down to my foot it's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> and my foot kinda hurts I'm on medication for currently having high blood pressure Advice
Avatar_n_tn I would suggest you to go for an X-ray and if required MRI and diagnose if you have any boney or soft tissue injuries. Rest your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> till properly diagnosed and do not exert yourself. Apply ice packs and also take intermittent NSAIDs. Take care!
Avatar_f_tn My foot, ankles, leg and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> stays <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>. I soak in epison salt, elevate my leg when sitting and laying. They stay swollen. I also wear suppresion stockings. WHAT CAN I DO? IN PAIN WHEN I SLEEP. I NEED HELP!!!
Avatar_n_tn So heres what happenned, About 9 wks ago, I noticed that my right leg was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> below the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span>, mostly the calf, not so much towards the ankle and foot, I experienced paresthesia and minor discomfort(pain), no discoloration or change in temperature form the other leg. I went to the ER, got a d-dimmer test which was positive, and my leg was about 2in bigger that the other, got a heparin shot for 4 days but when I had the doppler done it was negative. Dr.
1001811_tn?1259865089 I called hosp and they told me at labour and delivery to come in - to check for blood clotts. There are none thankfully. My foot and leg are a little swollen but nthing to be concerned about. I have been taking 2 Extrastength Tylenol every 5 hours as told to my by doc at hosp. I feel horribly for taking so much meds for baby sake. I did not take anything except vitamins during preg for baby sake. I cannot bear the pain once I get to about the 5 hour mark of the tylenol.
Avatar_m_tn From the day of surgery I have had a soreness along the front of the lower leg - about half way from the foot to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span>. About 3 weeks ago a pain began developing along the front of the lower leg after sleeping for about 2 hours. The pain can be very sever - 8 on a 1 to 10 scale. If I ice it the pain will go away for a while. I have been wearing compression socks all day long. Since surgery both of my legs and ankles have been swollen.
Avatar_f_tn my vison started closing in like a white light and then got a semi-migraine. next was the leg and foot cramping which went on for weeks. next my feet swoll...at this point I went to a DR. who gave me water pills. Swelling went down. However then my legs started to feel really bad like bugs crawling on them for weeks. I finally got moved and then my back went out...I could barely walk for a couple of weeks.
Avatar_n_tn About 6 days after the injury I noticed that my left leg was swelling from the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> down. My left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span>, my calf, and my foot all began to noticeably swell. My lower leg feels somewhat "hard" to the touch. Soon afterwards I started getting a large (about 1.
Avatar_f_tn I dislocated my left knee five weeks ago I saw my physio yesterday (Thursday) and he advised me to start using my leg more and trying to bend.
Avatar_f_tn I am now having swelling in my right foot all the way to the top of my knee it starts in the morning and gets worse as the day goes by. At bedtime my foot/leg is so <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> to the point that I am having trouble walking and the right side feels very heavy, is this normal after surgery?
Avatar_n_tn Now, for about 6 weeks ive experienced this extreme tingling on my left foot, from about hte <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> down. This is only on the leg that i injured. The doctors say its unrelated but I think otherwise What are the symptoms? Symptoms of a dislocated knee include: * severe pain immediately after injury * inability to bend the knee properly * deformity of the knee * rapid swelling of knee joint * tingling or numbness in the foot.
Avatar_f_tn I was on vacation this past week at myrtle beach. I messed up my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> and foot on the same leg and the next day i got sunburned from the knees down. After i got sunburned my feet and ankles swelled to double thier normal size. Has anyone else ever had this happen. The injured foot is deffinatly worse. The other one is starting to go down but it still bothers me that my feet look like balloons.
1294547_tn?1275659377 It seems like it stops at a less than a 90 degree angle, and will not bend upward or downward fully. It only effects my left foot/leg and because of my ankle and foot reacting this way, I walk with a limp. Depending on my fatigue level, and how much I've use the leg, my leg/foot issue will be worse in the evening, however, I wake up with this numbness on a daily bases. Because of the weakness in my toes, I can no longer get up on my tippy toes on that leg, and I can not walk on my heels.
Avatar_n_tn About 6 months ago my daughter was working on a horse ranch and a horse jurked her around and she fell in a hole still holding on the the horse, ever since she has had severe back pain upper and lower and swelling in the foot and leg, her foot is like ice. She has been to several doctors but no one can tell her anything. One doctor says she has a factor of the spine in disc L5 and the other says she has no facture.
Avatar_f_tn By the end of the weekend, I couldn't put pressure on my foot without some big pain. I thought I may have sprained my foot. The foot is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> a little still and it hurts, but the pain is subsiding somewhat but now the front of my foot hurts as well. I have it elevated and it helps a little, but it hurts no matter if I am walking on it or not. It hurts more when I put pressure on it, but I definitely know it is still there when I am stationary.
Avatar_n_tn In my right leg, I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> swelling and pain when walking, ankle swelling and pain, and foot arch and metatarsal pain, though not all at the same time, and unpredictably. I think it's all related, but I don't know where to start. I used to wear prescription orthotics but haven't in about 15 years. I noticed my right knee was slightly swollen starting about 7 years ago. The knee pain started about two years ago, foot and ankle have been slightly swollen for about that long.
Avatar_f_tn Went to urgent care sent us to ortho. Gave him a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> brace. Saw ortho next day and had MRI of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span>. Went the next day for results..stated he had bursistis and possible pinched soft tissue in knee. While there asked him why my sons ankle was swelling, he stated that the brace must be to small. By the end of the day sons leg was swollen 2 x and purple. Went to ER--checked for blood clot-negative. checked for compartment syndrome-negative. did blood work-negative.
Avatar_m_tn She has pain in her left knee for almost last one year and this leg is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> for same period. We consulted various doctors (including ortho.) but there is no improvement. X-ray was done and she has been treated by doctors for crack in skin and infection, but there is no improvement. She can not put her full weight on right leg and can not move on stairs. There is small history of one injury in her legs.
Avatar_n_tn For the pain and swelling, get a really good compression ice pack. Maybe one for your leg and one for your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span>, wherever your swelling and pain are located. These guys make a really good ice wrap (http://www.kingbrand.com/knee-Ice-Packs-and-wraps.php?REF=10PV3.47 ) but forget about their BFST thing because it won't do anything for a fracture. Not sure if this board will strip that link, but you can find options just by googling leg ice packs or knee ice packs or something like that.
Avatar_n_tn I have numbness in my foot, it feels as though my leg is numb, but mostly from my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> down. My foot is also tingling, I even get that electricity feeling that stems from my lower back to my leg, and it goes up and down all day and all night. I at one time herniated my disc, L4 L5, and the PT and doctors think I again have bulging discs. I am awaiting a cat scan.
Avatar_f_tn This happened to me yesterday. My right leg hurt clear up to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> and my foot and ankle were <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>. I don't have a doctor appointment till Thursday so I'll ask about it then.
Avatar_m_tn i am still having trouble with it the pain behind my knee is awfull and i have had pain on the ball of my foot and i hav noticed it is slightly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> aroun my ankle and ball of foot what could this be
Avatar_f_tn I'm 33 and have had leg pain x4 days. It started behind my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> (back side of leg). 2 days ago my foot was tingly. today my upper thigh aches also. It doesn't appear swollen. I take a baby aspirin 1x daily. 2 yrs ago I had a large DVT in the same leg. It was from my ankle to my pelvis. I took 90mg 2x daily of lovenox for 9 months. I was pregnant at the time. Could this pain be due to damage of my veins from the clot being so bad or could it be returning?
