Knee pain going down

Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain going down


Avatar f tn I had a road accident in June 2008 and gradually have had tingling in my legs and sometimes arms, with pain in my right hip sometimes so bad I cannot walk, feels like a screw driver digging into my hip. The pain is now going down my leg around the right side of knee, feels very tight. When this happens I just have to rest then it gets better. worse for walking and sitting and exercise, better for rest and warmth. Sometimes my knee locks up and my right hand goes dead as well.

Avatar f tn I need advice on what to do about the pain in my knee. I got into a small accident while biking last weekend. While biking along the main stretch of town, I collided with the side of a pick-up truck backing out between two buildings. He couldn't see me and I didn't see him until it was too late. Neither one of us was going very fast and there wasn't even any damage to my clothes from where I hit the pavement, so I figured the bumps and bruises were going to be the end of it.
Avatar m tn I tried to stop a fall and in doing so I twisted my left leg and got a severe pain in my lower cheek on my *** that went down to my knee. I saw black and starts for a brief second or two. It did cause me to cry. Now I have terrible aching in my cheek and it also goes to my knee. What can possibly be wrong. I hate to go to the doctor if all he's going yo do is prescribe pain killers and muscle relaxers. Not into meds.
Avatar f tn Hello first of thanks for the help this site rocks :) So i have been having some really bad knee pain for about 3 years i just had a baby and it hurts so bad when I'm carrying him up and down our stairs. he is only 4 months old, but it fills like my legs are going to buckle from underneath me. they usually always hurt but more when I'm walking up and down the stairs. at night i drench my knees in icy hot.
Avatar f tn now that ive lost 82 lbs, im having more knee pain than before the surgery. I would occasionally have knee pain when I was extremely overweight whenever going up & down stairs. Now that I ve lost the weight, my knees hurt more often & I have to be careful when stepping up or down stairs, or bending over to pick something up off the floor. Is this because im not working out at all? Im not physically active at all & im wodering if this knee pain is because ive lost a lot of muscle?
5624774 tn?1374284525 Last night i started getting this awful shooting pain down my left leg. It starts at my hip and goes all the way to my knee. It almost feels like my hip needs to pop but the pain is a lot worse. Changing positions and sitting down do not help. Its not in my belly like contractions and its not back pain. Baby girl is still moving and i just had a doc appt and u/s yesterday morning. Im hesitant to go to the er because i feel like im overreacting but it will not go away! Any ideas??? Im 32+5.

Avatar f tn I had a total left knee replacement Dec.18th.2007 and was wondering if having constant pain on the inside part of the knee is normal.Sometimes I also get a sharp pain there.Lately I've also been getting some pain shooting down the shin bone.This is new wasn't having that before my replacement.Also does everyones knee pop all the time.Mine does anytime the leg is moved I can hear it when I walk and actually with any movement.
Avatar f tn For the next 2 weeks I was limping and the pain was pretty severe. It started 5 years ago with pain going up and down the stairs. I saw an orthopedic and he told me it was overuse. Just 5 months ago I went to see him again and he ran an MRI and an X-ray. The X-ray showed nothing and the MRI showed thinning of the cartilage. It somtimes feels like something gets in the way in the front of my knee and then stepping down on it is extremely painful.

Avatar m tn Hi, I have pain in the tibia of my left leg, which I think is below the knee cap. The pain started when I was 18, after I got an injury during a basketball game. Now I'm 20 and I still feel the pain only when I engage in physical activity. What's wrong with me. Could these by osgood schlatters disease?
Avatar m tn What I am experiencing now is still knee pain - sharp pains in the back and sides of my knee that go down into my foot, extreme stiffness in both legs like I ran a marathon to the point where I can't bend down to pick something up off the floor or can barely get dressed, pain and stiffness in both shoulders to the point where is it difficult to put on a shirt or even scratch my head (there is like a pinching feeling in the top of my shoulder and it feels muscular), and neck pain and stiffne
Avatar f tn I went through about 4 sessions of treatment before I called it quits because my back and knee were in major pain and the dr kept pushing costly treatments. I plan on attending a Physical Therapist this summer once I can afford it. Anyways this brings me to my knee. Sometimes when I step down on it, like on stairs or even getting up from a chair too fast or just walking normally, I will feel a sharp (almost like electrocution) pain throughout the entire kneecap area.
Avatar m tn I have a lot of pain behind my left knee & my left leg calf has a lot of pressure in it. It feels like it wants to burst. I have been taking therapy but isn't working. With two hips replaced & degenerated discs I'm getting to hate pain. I was doing good after hips replaced but know this pain has come in. What could be causing this pain.
1961313 tn?1326290364 I have problems with my knees,just general stiffness-but one day I had to get down on my right knee and the pain was extreme,it wasn't necessarily in the knee but to the right side of the knee,it felt like the skin was splitting into,I look and the skin looked fine,so I don't know if it's the tendon or the muscle what ever it is,is very painful,in fact I can't get down on my knees any longer
Avatar f tn But then up and pain subsided. Possibly knee cap moved back in place. Now then in morning knee lil swollen, pain when walking, no bending or squatting which would lead my proffessional opinion to be you over streched tendons, possibly a slight tear. Use an ice pack for 2 days twice a day 30 mins each. No more weights till Friday. If everything returns to normal leave the squats out for an additional week. However by this Friday if knee is still the same, go see family doctor.
Avatar m tn Most of the time when I am walking around it feels like normal, however there are times that I feel excruiating pain in and around the knee. I have noticed most times it occurs is when i am bending deep with my knee I.e. getting into my car, going down stairs fast, bending down to pick something off the ground. However it does not always happen when I am doing these activities. When the pain starts the only way I have seen to relief the pain is to straighten out my leg.
Avatar f tn I also massage my knee and move my knee cap around in tiny circles to unpinch nerves.
Avatar f tn I have had a really painful right knee under the knee cap,its gradually becoming worse when I kneel down or go up and downstairs(particular going upstairs) I have to hold the rail going up as the pain is really knee does give way at times and if I turn awkwardly I get a severe shooting pain in my knee.I have seen my doc who is sending me to a specialist and arranged physio.what is a knee wash and what does it entail ,she also thinks my menisca is damaged.what treatment can I expect?
Avatar m tn I hurt my back last week lifting a bale of hay. Pain started the next day in my lower back (right side) & buttocks area (right side). The next day my groin area was included in the pain. The following day the pain travelled down the front portion of my right leg & the pain in my back, groin & buttocks areas are gone. Now (4th day) the pain is running down the front part of my right leg only from the knee down. I am seeing a chiropractor now who has ordered a MRI.

Avatar f tn the past few weeks, i have developed knee buckling and the sensation that my knee is going to snap backwards while walking or standing with weight bearing down on my left leg. it also gives out every now and then, and now i also am experiencing a shooting pain that feels cold and radiates partly down to my upper calf bone, and after the shooting pain is over, the knee feels very cold and achy. (this pain i am describing is occurring inside the knee, and not on the exterior. any ideas?
Avatar f tn I had to go to the bathroom after it happened and had moved. I stood up an felt like my leg was going to break excruciating pain, stiff unable to straighten leg. Couldn't bare weight on it. The knee radiating downward. I hopped to the bathroom and back. Checked it again by attempting to stand up, resulted in tears. So I took 4 ibuprofen and a dose of 20mg baclofen. I laid back down straingt as a board and it didn't hurt. Woke up this morning and it was gone.
Avatar n tn m now 32). The pain started below my knee, and is now accompanied with pain shooting down my shin. It also now feels as if something from the top of my knee is pulling as well. I am hurting, and I don't know what else to do. I am also taking Naperson (sp?), which is not helping. I can't take anything more than that, because pain meds knock me on my butt & I don't want that. Please help with other suggestions while I await my doctors appointment.
