Knee pain going up steps

Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain going up steps


1396846 tn?1332459510 Yeah I have nerve pain all the time, it is just my leg only feels like it is going to snap when I really over do it. My hip it has its moments but with all of it together with no apparent cause makes me wonder if it is a flare. I can't use heat, heat makes me soooo much worse. Cold usually helps for me but we will see what tomorrow brings.
Avatar f tn I was walking up the stairs and when I got to the top fell onto a bag of trash I had at the top of the steps. Onto my right side. Scuffed up my right knee and elbow. No blood but I haven't felt him move yet. I'm 38 weeks.
Avatar m tn I still limp, although after the first 10 steps, once the leg moves a bit, I do better. Most of the pain is in the knee, the leg still swells at the actual fracture site, but the knee is the major pain area. How long should I expect this to continue? I was a very active person before this accident, walked a few miles a day, and now I feel like a slug! The pain has changed me, and I hate taking the narcotics...Please...any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Avatar f tn I am fine walking around the house for a few minutes but than have to sit down as it feels like the knee is going to give out. When I get up from a chair it feels like I have something pulling in my knee and it has pain. I dont know what to do, I am unsure if I tore my meniscus again or If I am just bruised. I dont know if I should go have an xray or give it more time to see if it gets better. Anyone have any suggestions on what I should do?
Avatar f tn So Tuesday afternoon I was in school and I was walking down these steps (only 4-5 steps) I missed the step and fell, I stood up all I had was a scrapped knee. The next day I get this random sharp pain on my left side where the top of your thigh is but to the side. That was wensday I felt it, Thursday I was fine but I food poisoning and passed gas but today I can't since I'm at school. Any advice what it could be? I think it's built up gas from today or I have have pulled something.
Avatar n tn The problem is I feel severe pain at the back of my knee any time I try to walk. Can any medication help alleviate or stop this pain. What can help me wriggle my right toes again?
Avatar f tn I jus noticed it getting painful over the course of a few days. I stopped exercise all together. I have some knee pain in a few different places around the kneecap and ITB and and uncomfortable "catching" sensation with every bend. I've went to 2 different doctors and had MRI and xray. MRI showed no damage but "just a little ganglion cyst in the joint 4mm". The first doctor just said it's just jumper's knee and rest with no brace needed.
Avatar f tn Coming down the stairs Saturday his knee gave way and he fell the last couple of steps down the stairs, this is worrying him. If I understand you correctly my husband knee could have arthritis in it and his x-ray and MRI would not show anything. Then how can they diagnose this condition? What questions should we ask the doctor? I look forward to your answers.
Avatar m tn I had partial knee replacement 2.5 months ago. While the pain from the arthritis is mainly gone I am experiencing much tightness and numbness in the knee. Combined with limited strength in my quadricep I have a much difficulty climbing any steps. I am working with a physical therapists but still am frustrated about the limited success. Any thoughts about this. The surgeon looked at the knee through xrays and felt things are going fine.

Avatar f tn 2 weeks ago the left side of my left leg began hurting very bad, it feels numb and heavy. it often gets weak when i stand and go up or down steps. It hurts to sit for any amount of time, walking does help and it doesn't hurt but is always numb.. from my upper hip all the way down my leg but not to my foot and my knee feels tight and heavy. I thought it started with a bout of sciatica.. is this possible?

Avatar f tn My left hip was replaced 6 months ago and my recovery was going great until 2 weeks ago. While walking I got a pain on the outside of my left knee. The pain comes and go, only occurs when I walk and can be felt anywhere on the outside of my leg from the butox to the shin. It also hurts when I stand from sitting and take the first steps. Until this happened I had completed my physical therapy and had a started participating in an exercise class.
Avatar m tn Knee replaced 11-13-09. Finally felt I've been making some progress until yesterday. During therapy, performing lateral steps over 6" hurdles, I felt a sudden pain and kind of a pop on the interior medial aspect, a little toward the back of the knee. During the course of the day, I would experience sudden pain causing me to yell out, even when non-weight bearing. My wife appreciates this.
Avatar m tn I'm 32 and I've never had any sort of leg, knee, or joint problem. Lately I've noticed that when I plant my left foot and pivot on it to turn my body to the right, my left knee makes a popping sound. In the last few days I've noticed that I can feel something move in the same knee when I walk down stairs. It feels like it's located to the left (outside) of the center of the knee. The right knee doesn't have any issues.
Avatar f tn I am a male of 38yrs old i have a major problem with my left and right knees, i get severe pain in the knee caps, there is No swelling. Most times i can not get up and down stairs, there to painful to kneel on and i am very painful to walk, i had an xray but no problem was seen, i need a second opinion please.
Avatar m tn I have chronic post op knee pain and swelling after 4 reconstructive surgeries. I am a machinist and must go up and down steps into and out of a large machine all day. I am seeing a pain management physician and have tried nerve stimulator, pain patchs and percoset. Currently I am using the knee patches but feel like the long term use of percoset is causing me to have other health problems, i.e. ?liver damage, erectile dysfunction, etc.
Avatar n tn s gotten gradually worse in my left knee to the point that I cannot straighten my knee for the first two days of my period and going up and down steps is difficult. Then it abruptly goes back to normal. My periods are also extremely heavy on days 2 and 3 with some clotting. I've also noticed some discomfort and pressure on my right side above my hip bone and what feels like a lump of tissue right above my hip bone. It's not painful, but it's uncomfortable.
Avatar f tn A Doctor I saw in PA said they will not do anything for my knee because I am to young. I was told to just quit walking up or down hills and steps.(at the time I lived in the Mountains of PA in a Cape cod style house. So that was a little hard. Plus I have 2 kids. 12 and 8.) I have just moved to a 1 floor house in FL and the pain is worse sometimes. Celebrex is not working. Knee grinds. Now the other one is doing it and my Lower back is killing me.
Avatar n tn GREAT advice. Going to an Orthospinology Chiropractor can help, too, especially coupled with your advice.
Avatar f tn Pain in the back of knee when walking up and down steps. Also buckling and giving in while walking at times. I am a competitive gymnasts. The pain is right where you bend your knee in the back What could this be?
Avatar f tn Now if i have a really long day with alot of standing or walking my shin will start to ache really bad and the pain radiates up to my knee. The other day i was walking and it felt like i was being stabed in my shin and it made me lip bad every time i took a step but then it complety went away after afew steps. I was woundering if this could be a musle problem or more of a bone problem?
Avatar m tn sudden knee pain during pt and continued pain interior medial aspect. medic took xrays - all ok. Soft tissue issues. therapist can feel the popping of (muscle, ligament, tendon???) during flexion and extension. It feels like something has to pop over something else for leg to straighten. It hurts when it does. Occurs during weight-beating and non weight bearing. Therapist says muscle may be increasing in bulk but not stretching out causing other soft tissues??? to have to pop over them.
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.
