Avatar f tn For the past 6 weeks I have been experiencing pain in the back of my knee and down my calf muscle in my right leg. If i rest either with my feet up or down, when I go to stand my leg from my knee to my foot is very stiff and sore. I am unable to kneel as it feels like a massive burst of pain behind the knee into my calf muscle as if i have severly sprained it. When standing, if i transfer any weight onto my right leg, i get pain from the back of the knee right down my calf.

It was either head hurting, knees or feet. It was hard to get a specific with a 2 year old. I kept bringing him to the dr's. I was told growing pains, too. I brought him to the ER at one point and he had a spinal tap and was admitted. But they couldn't find what was wrong.
Avatar n tn It is difficult to comment without examining. The various causes of leg pain are atherosclerosis, deep vein thrombosis - leg pain on walking (A blood clot in a deep vein), Leriche syndrome (block in abdominal aorta and/or main leg artery), limb ischaemia (low oxygen to limbs), spondylitis of lower vertebrae and peripheral vascular disease (arteries of limbs are involved). You need Doppler tests or angiograms to diagnose vascular causes.
Avatar n tn The pain was really bad, both the front and back of the knee. I never experienced clicking/popping in that knee prior. But suddenly it was happening all the time. As the pain subsided the clicking/popping got worse. It has been a couple months, the clicking/popping still very much there. I tried working out again for the first time in months last Wednesday, and felt nothing during the workout or afterwards.
Avatar m tn Hello, I'm an 19 year old male and since the last week of August, I've had a sharp pain in my knee. It's occurs in my left knee, on the inside. It's very near to the platella, but I don't know if it's the tibia or the fibula. It's the bone that kind of slightly juts out. Anyways, it hurts to bend the knee and walking up and down stairs causes slight pain as well. Any insight on the problem is appreciated. Thanks for your time!
Avatar n tn s cyst, bursitis, connective tissue disorders such as lupus, dislocation of the kneecap, iIliotibial band syndrome, infection or any trauma or abnormalities in the structures in the knee. Many causes of knee pain, especially those related to overuse or physical activity, respond well to self-care such as resting and applying ice to the affected area. At this point, follow your doctor's orders and have him go for regular follow-up for monitoring. Take care and keep us posted.
2075786 tn?1342908758 My heel has a constant aching in it that causes pain to radiate into my ankles, calf, and knee. It is awful!
Avatar f tn It felt as if the joint pain was moving, started in right elbow with a deep sharp pain and next was in left knee then left ankle tendon. Both calves hurt as if by vigorous exercise and were tender to the touch. By the weekend of March 10th it was in right ankle and shin bone-then right knee. Joints and muscles remain weakened and mildly achy even after the sharp pain subsides.
Avatar n tn Wow..I know I'm 2 years late with my comment but I've recently been diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the knee. I'm 42 years old for god sake! I've been taking Prevacid for 5 years and my Doctor dismissed the "rumors" as well. I come from a family of fat and skinny but almost 100% healthy members. My Mom didn't start menopause until she was 50 so I know that can't be the problem. I keep thinking; "why are my bones doing this?
Avatar f tn ( but i have a lot of pain in my knee, and my hip today. I sometimes get this pain that radiates from my ankles, up to my knee and right now i just feel it in my knee, its a very uncomfortable feeling.

2200368 tn?1345848512 I also had back pain before that. Than again a month ago I started to feel a bit pain in the lower side of back then the left side started to hurt from the mid of the back to somewhere above the knee.It turned out it was sciatica.But when I'm lying down I have a feeling like the right side of my back is above the left side,and when I'm doin some exercise I feel like left side doesn't participate at all.
Avatar f tn at the same time she complains pain in her palms and fingers. At time she cries in night in sleep because of pain. Got blood test her calcium and vitamin D is on border line .
Avatar n tn i have a deep pain in my upper right leg, right in the middle of it. It has been there for months, and is sometimes numb, but mostly throbs deeply while I am in bed. Sometimes it causes insomnia because it's like a burning pain. In the past month, it seems to have travelled down to right above my knee. Help!
Avatar m tn Sudden limping in a child could result from a number of causes, some of which may not be obviously visible and may be associated with pain referred to other regions. A few causes include infections/ inflammations, fractures, growths/ masses, Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease., neural/ muscular disorders, a few blood disorders etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Hope this was useful. Take care!
Avatar f tn Hi! Everyone I started getting pain in the lower left side of my stomach and left knee last night, I woke up with said pain and it hasn't stop as of yet,HELP PLEASE.....
Avatar f tn But, I got permanent swelling from last 3 weeks and pain also. Pain is in my lower and upper part of knee. I tried cooling and hot cycle belt of wrap but still pain exists. This all started from nov 07. I never had injury with my knees. Completed my blood test and routine check up in January 08 but everything is normal. I never had consultation with my knees.
Avatar f tn The stomach and leg pain are unlikely to be related. Possible cause of stomachache include GI/ GU related causes, neuro-muscular causes, infections, inflammations, etc; while knee/ leg pain can be caused due to joint arthritis, fractures, neuro-muscular/ vascular causes etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician initially and depending on the causes diagnosed/ suspected, this can be managed accordingly or specialist(s) care may be sought. Hope this helps.
