Knee pain after hiking downhill

Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain after hiking downhill


Avatar m tn Sometimes when I walk down steps or when hiking and change from downhill to flat or flat to uphill, during the first few steps I sometimes feel in my left knee something like it is being hyper extended. It doesn't hurt and there is no swelling or inflammation. It's just real annoying - and something I very much want to avoid. Sort of like how you hate to hit the funny bone in your elbow or accidentally crack your knuckles.
Avatar m tn Hello, I have left outer knee pain when I try to pistol at about 45 degree squat and push weight and stretch knee outer side by crossing right knee. Pain is worsening when walking downhill. Its about three years. What the injury should be?
Avatar f tn I went hiking over the weekend, after about 2km I started feeling out of breath and was perspiring a lot, I sat down for a while and my hands started shaking. I ate a energy snack and drank some water I felt much better and the shaking also subsided. After another 2km my legs started shaking and I felt strange and very funny. I sad again taking deep breaths, some of the group members convinced me to rather go back to camp. They went back with me because they didn't want to leave me alone.
Avatar m tn If the pain comes on bending the knee as in walking step or running downhill or down a flight of stairs, then it could be due to Patellofemoral syndrome or runners knee. This happens due to mal-alignment of the knee cap on bending the knee (and hence any imaging study has to be taken with the knee bent), injury to the knee (you may have sustained it in past), flat feet, over tight or over lax muscles around the knee joint. All these aspects will have to be investigated by your doctor.
Avatar n tn Numbness of my left arm, twitching in neck, muscular twitches in lower legs, throbbing knee pain with a pulling in my left hip., changes in vision, numbness in head and face and one occasion of numbness in my tongue, persistant diarrhea for more than three days at a time at least twice a month. My stomach also feels very hard and I am very tender in my uterine and ovarian areas. And, oddly, sex is still painful even after 4 months.
Avatar m tn Unfortunately, I had to 3 miles back to the car, which really exacerbated the knee. After several weeks the pain subsided to the point that I could walk within a range of a quarter mile before I experienced more pain. After some more time passed I could walk about .5 to 1 miles. Unfortunately, it never improved beyond this point and was re-aggravated multiple times. In May of 2012, an orthopedic surgeon prescribed a high dose NSAID.
Avatar f tn hi,here,Do you have increased pain walking downhill as opposed to uphill?Do your pain usually is worse while walking and feel better after sitting down?How many yard you walking then start feeling aches? Of course,As with CSS, MRI is the best imaging procedure, though unlike with CSS, CT may be somewhat useful, and can be used if MRI is unavailable. Take care!
Avatar m tn - April 29 or so developed knee pain on my right knee. It was painful enough that I had a hard time going up and down the stairs. I went hiking on April 24th. I wasn't sure if this related since the time span between the hike and the pain is a bit too long which is 5 days. The pain kept switching between my right and left knee for about 2 weeks but NEVER experienced the pain on both knees at once.
Avatar n tn i had the same surgery as melhal and im a 42 yr old female, however, i cannot bend my knee when i walk or go down the stairs because something on the side of my knee pops and it hurts so much and i limp and still have swelling in front and back of my knee.
Avatar f tn Hi. I have had persistent and worsening knee pain for about a year. I have been to my GP about it explaining that I physically can't walk without wearing knee supports (often a tube support and patellar strap together!) because my knees feel like they are going to give way. My job as a waitress before being furloughed for the time being was hell and I would often be limping by the end of the shift.
Avatar n tn Since the injury, which occurred while hiking and hopping off a rock, my heel has been numb and tingling and I have a very sore spot on the ball of my foot. The foot is very still in the morning and the numbness and tender spot is constant. I shared this with my orthopoedic surgeon several times and he kept saying it would go away. It is not improving and my foot is more stiff and sore in the morning than it has been. What do I do next?
Avatar n tn Over the past year I have gotten recurring pain in my left shoulder, a swollen left wrist ( a couple times), groin pain, and most recently a swollen left ankle, and a swollen left knee. With all of these the pain subsides over a couple days and I feel normal for a couple weeks. Right now the left knee is still a bit swollen but does not hurt anymore, my left shoulder pain has come back, and my middle and ring fingers in my left hand have pain where they meet the hand.
Avatar n tn Miraculously there were no broken bones, but of course LOTS of contusions, swelling and pain. After the initial ER trip, I have been seeing my Family Practice doctor and his treatment has been: stay off my leg, keep it elevated, ice for the first two weeks & heat for the last 1.5 weeks, as well as narcotic pain meds, muscle relaxer & anti-inflammatory, plus Jobst stocking.
Avatar f tn Hello, I have had constant knee pain for 17 years, currently I'm 24 years old. I have had all kinds of tests done since I first started getting knee pain and all of them said I had healthy knees and NO problem was ever detected. All I want to know is if my knees are healthy then why do my knees constantly hurt (I mean 24/7). I had an MRI done a few weeks ago when my knee pain got out of control but that also came out "normal.
Avatar f tn She has never exercises but I am always exerciaing when I am not so fatigued.. Note I do feel better after going hiking yesterday but it sure was a struggle getting started. Thanks for your reply!
Avatar m tn oops I have been struggling with what has been diagnosed as IT band syndrome. I've had pain on the outside of my left knee for over a year. I am an amateur cyclist. I have been doing physio (glute strengthening and stretches), ART, gunn IMS, acupuncture, 3 rounds of oral and topic anti-inflammatory (2 months of diclofenac 10%), i've had a cortisone shot over 3 weeks ago, and there has never been anything that has ever helped.
1278937 tn?1271257811 Has anyone experienced a slow recovery - and long-time bruise like this? This knee was more swollen and sore after the fall - so just taking longer??
999692 tn?1250637950 I injured my knee when I was eighteen in a bicycle crash. I am now 28 and know I'd need surgery to fix it. I need a knee brace and to do strengthening exercises so I can still hike, bike, and run. Any suggestions on braces that can withstand such abuse?
Avatar f tn How long does it take for the process to start going after you have sex ? My cousin said have sex every two days until the baby comes . I'm 37weeks 4 days .
