Hip and knee pain from running

Common Questions and Answers about Hip and knee pain from running


Avatar f tn However, yesterday when I was running, I suddenly started getting sharp stabbing pain only on the outside of my right knee. My knee is NOT swollen at all, I can easily bend my knee and pushing all over it causes no pain. It only stabs when I'm jogging on that leg. Today it was way worse. It's not bad when I walk, but it's over the top when I run. The hip/upper femur pain is constantly present, but worse when I sit.
Avatar n tn My right knee clicks when moving down stairs. I have stiffness and pain in my right hip (particularly after running, but also when I don't run). Any ideas what I can do to fix this?
Avatar f tn I have been running more often, and longer then I used to and in last couple of days I have pain in my right hip. This morning I experienced clicking knee but I went for a run anyway . And it stopped for some time. I am wandering am I doing something wrong? I am looking forward to continue with my running habit, but should I slow down or pause after some time while running? I mean I don't run that long.
Avatar f tn I am 26 and have had knee pain for 2 years. I have been living in Asia and have had a difficult time finding a doctor that a) speaks English and b) is helpful in diagnosing the problem. Most doctors have said they are not sure what the problem is and that I should just rest and take pain medication. After 2 years of doing this I am becoming really frustrated.
Avatar f tn Since high school, after running track for 4 yrs, (7 yrs ago) I hav had knee pain. In the last couple of years it has gotten worse, radiating to my hip. It happens when I've been standing or walking too long, or if I'm cold. Could this be a trauma induced osteoarthritis?
Avatar f tn The person it found me and I started running, I ran up two stairs and at the top was a lot of rubber and a railroad tie, I slipped on the Rubber and my right ankle went sideways slamming against the railroad tie. Now I am having pain from my right foot to my knee and sometimes further up when walking, and from my right foot to my hip when laying down. What could this be? (What could I have done to it?) Do I need to go to the emergency room?
Avatar m tn I had several months of physio, stretching strengthening exercises. I have had knee, hip and back x-rays, MRI scans on my back and hip, two knee operations for mild CMP and a lateral release. I have also seen a chiropracter and had a bio-mechanical assessment (othotics req'd). Nothing was found, joint spacing etc fine except for some fraying of the cartilage on the posterior lateral aspect of my patella.
Avatar f tn At first the pain was in my left knee, and in my right hip. Now I have pain in my right knee and right hip. I have heard that abnormal gait can cause this. I do not believe that this is my case. Does MS cause joint pain? Do any of you have pain in the hips and/or knees?
Avatar m tn And still feels tender under my butt and upper hamstring and my right side of my rear end feels tignt sore when I twist my leg and hip to right . and some pain behind my knee. fore by injury I was getting hip pain . Will be seeing a hip specialist aug 17 an maybe get a mri also.
Avatar n tn t remember which) are too weak (due to the fact that my knee are still growing) to keep the knee cap from sliding over to far and causing inflammation and swelling in the knee. So, it would be great if someone knows what is wrong and what it is called. Thanks.
Avatar m tn This knee pain can arise from the knee itself or referred from conditions affecting the hip, ankle or the lower back. MRI spine will reveal the cause whether it is a vertebral fracture, slipped intervertebral disc causing nerve impingement etc since these symptoms started with the back injury. You could take oral anti anxiety medicines like benzodiazepines under medical supervision. If it is difficult, an anesthesiologist could be requested for intravenous sedation or even general anesthesia.
Avatar m tn Pain, swelling, popping sound in the knee could be due to arthritis, as it is the most common cause of pain in the knee after recurrent injuries to the knee. Burning, tingling and radiation of the pain to the hip and ankle relates to compression of nerve. I would suggest that you visit a orthopedician and get x-ray and MRI of the knee to confirm with the diagnosis. All the best.
Avatar m tn Everytime I extend my legs I hear a pop sound from both my hip area as well as my from my knees. It sounds like my hip and my knees are popping or snapping with every movement that I make.
Avatar m tn The pain lasted for more than 2-3 days.. Now the pain from hip has shifted towards my knee and thigh area. The pain is constant and specially in the area behind my knee, and on thighs. And now the pain has again expanded to the ankle area (the joint between feet and leg). I have tried doing exercises and such activities, and had some pain killer medicines as well, but the pain has not decreased. The pain especially increases during nights.
Avatar n tn ve been left to cure my own ills. I took some time of from running (5 months) and recently started training again. The hip pain had greatly diminished and now it is back with a vengenance. It hurts when bending knee to chest, or after running, walking, cycling, basically overuse. I use a heating pad which helps at night. Is this a hip flexor injury and how do I treat it?
1378381 tn?1444866015 Sorry to hear about your problems. Have you ever had any of your doctors check your femurs to see if their Q angles are correct or within what they consider the normal range. If the angles are not "correct" they can cause knee and hip problems. I do not know if this is what is causing your problems or not, but just something you might want to rule out.
Avatar n tn If I will do yoga in the morning then whole day I will get shin pain and knee pain also,mostly below the knee and side of the knee cap.I have a swelling from last 1 year below my knee cap and above the tibia.It is not growing but as usual the with the same size.And the shin area ,mostly side of the tibia area is sore to touch,if by mistake i will bang that area the I will get severe pain .
Avatar f tn Were you checked for hip bursitis? That's the most likely thing if your hip is painful to the touch. Were you checked for a deformity that can lead to labrum tears? Does the pain radiate down the leg? That could be periformis syndrome. That's a small muscle that's part of the hip area and the sciatic nerve goes over it in many people so when it gets inflamed it causes sciatica. Bursitis and periformis problems don't show up on an MRI.
Avatar f tn Extensive blood work with no significant findings, pelvic ultrasounds show multifollicular and enlarged ovaries, hip x-ray normal, left knee MRI – micro tearing under knee cap, hip ultrasound – bursitis and edema, clear abdominal CT apart from enlarged liver that was normal with last ultrasound, neck ultrasound clear, clear colonoscopy and endoscopy, brain MRI clear
Avatar f tn It is now 4 weeks since total knee replacement and I am finding that though I have the usual pain and knee stiffness my ongoing nagging problem is hip pain especially at night can any one advise or know when its likely to cease - its really very painful.
Avatar f tn Yesterday I had an x-ray to check for fracture of hip as I could put no weight on my left leg without agonising pain shooting from my hip, down the front and side of my thigh to my knee, and also into my groin. I have never felt pain like it. I also have numbness from knee to hip which is a weird sensation considering the pain. Although I was told there was no fracture I was given a walking frame and an offer of physiotherapy to be taken at home.
Avatar m tn I'm a wildland firefighter and I've put more miles on my knees from running and hiking with wieght both up and down hill then anyone I know. This year after a marathon I had the normal pain around 20 miles and the regular soreness aftewards. Two weeks after the marathon I did a half marathon and barely finished with a throbbing knee. From my readings it sounds like I may have both a meniscus problem and good old fashion wear and tear.
Avatar m tn However, in the past 4 months or so, I have been experiencing hip and knee pain if I sit for a period of time. I also have a great deal of muscle stiffness and pain in the mornings when I wake up, which I have never had. I have never had arthritis and have always been extremely active. I started taking the Progesterone treatment after saliva tests showed a deficiency and I was also experiencing some hot flashes. I had my uterus removed due to excessive vaginal bleeding about 5 years ago.
Avatar n tn 2 As a result joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons break down and fail. We experience this failure as pain. And once this type of pain has started, it is not going to go away unless the underlying causes are corrected. Specifically, the person's biomechanics need to be restored closer to normal. Correction of posture takes time and can only be accomplished gradually. The key is to learn what to do, learn how to do it, and to be working on posture every day.
