Avatar n tn You may have arthritic problems now in your knee. The numbness in the foot could be from referred pain from your knee or lower back, inappropriate footwear or nerve damage.

Avatar m tn -) The old age pain was fixed by getting a new hip. The MS pain is not so easy to fix. I don't know whether this is good news or bad, but MS pain doesn't jump around. The nature of MS is that it attacks individual locations in the central nervous system, rather than systemically attacking the entire central nervous system. As such, the neuropathic pain caused by MS tends to be related to the specific nerve pathway that controls its pain center. In my case it's my left foot.

Avatar f tn Hello, Every so often, if I slightly turn my body in one direction but my leg doesnt follow quick enough and even just slightly puts a twist on my knee, I get this stabbing right in the center of my knee cap if I try to put my weight on the leg. I have to keep it slightly bent and no pressure on it at all. If I have no pressure on it, the stabbing isnt there, just with pressure. And sore if I try to straighten the knee.
Avatar n tn When I lay on my right side , bend my knee 45% and try to lift it straight up , severe pain on the outside of the knee. Absolutely can not lift it.

Avatar m tn t have arthritis. The pain is located laterally on the right knee just about the center of the joint. Any suggestions??
Avatar f tn Until it pops, I have awful pain that is on the inside on my knee and underneath my kneecap and sometimes I have shooting pain go from under my kneecap all the way up the center/middle of my thigh to my hip.

Avatar n tn When my nerve area hurts, I can also feel a lesser amount of pain around that area, which is in the center of my right leg not too close to the nerve pain area. Aspiration procedures have been unsuccessful b/c the cyst is blocked from ultrasound location b/c of the bone. I have tried physical therapy and am now also seeing a neurologist about the nerve area pain, which is really bad - I'd say a solid 7 on the pain scale. Again, it is episodic, but I can't say what triggers it.
Avatar m tn The pain is centered in the center of his knee, as if you were to drill from the top of the knee and the side, the point they met is where the pain is. There was on injury to the knee prior to it starting to hurt. My question is has anyone hear of this before? Does anyone know what I can do to help him?
Avatar m tn I just got an MRI and was diagnosed with a damaged meniscus in both of my knees. This might be the reason of the pain. But as they also found fluid in my knees (caused by the damaged meniscus) there could be also so called Baker Zysts (collections of fluid behind the knee) which cause pain. Another thing that came to my mind when they told me about the fluid, is some kind of arthritis. I read that arthritis can cause nodes (not lymph nodes).
Avatar f tn I went back to doctor and the doctor said it is arthritis of the knee and that, at this point, no tests were necessary. Well, in spite of anti-inflammatory meds, I cannot put my full weight down on my leg without pain that seems more concentrated directly under the knee. I am walking around limping. I am afraid that if something else is going on, I may be injuring it more by walking on it. Can you answer the following for me? 1. Should I be getting x-rays or a MRI? 2.
604489 tn?1220023514 For the past week, I have had excruciating pain in the center of my knee that radiates to the outside of my thigh. This pain is on the left side of my body. I have noticed some puffiness around the knee and below it. There is no warmth in the knee or on my thigh. I've popped OTC painkillers like Advil and Aleve to no avail. I can't tolerate any pressure on that side, including when lying down. When sleeping, I have to straighten my left leg out flat.
Avatar f tn Patients with a loose total knee joint limp. The pain is usually felt in the whole knee area, predominantly in the front, along with increasing stiffness and effusion in the knee joint. With advancing time patient will not be able to put weight and diminished motion in the joint. Diagnosis can be made with the help of X-rays. Revision operation can be considered if there is unbearable pain, progression of osteolysis and loss of function.
3147730 tn?1343154021 Hello and thank you for reading so far. In 2007, I slipped on a piece of pecan pie and tore my ACL and did some other damage intermittently. In May 2011, I had arthroscopic surgery. My knee continues to slip out of place, but I can pop it back in. Also, I cannot walk very far without being down for a few days after. I saw my ortho surgeon yesterday. He recommended Aleve 2 X per day. My PCP prescribes 30 hydrocodone per month.

Avatar f tn Hi EVERYONE!! im in so much pain right now, that i can't get comfortable doing anything. I tried laying down but i hurt my back to much, and now i'm sitting and its hurting my hip, and if i stand it hurts my leg :( I have a feeling i won't be sleeping tonight. I have no idea whats wrong with my back but the pain is HORRIBLE.
Avatar m tn The location of the knee pain can be a useful guide. Pain in the front portion of the knee can be caused by bursitis (inflammation of the lining of the joint, possible due to injury while playing), arthritis, or injury to the patella cartilage (front portion of the knee). Pain on either sides of the knee is usually related to meniscal tears, injuries to the collateral ligaments, and even to arthritis. You will need X-rays and MRIs of the knee to find the exact.
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.
Avatar m tn For a few days I could feel something move in the same knee when I would walk down stairs. It felt like it was located to the left (outside) of the center of the knee. That went away. The right knee doesn't have any issues. There is no pain, tenderness, or swelling involved at all. Does this sound like it could be osteoarthritis? I've been working on the computer all day every day for about 10 years and I'm wondering if that sort of extreme inactivity could have caused this.
4671444 tn?1357794171 In all probability you have injured the menisci in the knee—either the medial or the lateral depending on the site of pain. Meniscii if torn or injured, result in joint instability—that is you are not confident the knee joint will take your weight. Often the person feels a popping sensation on moving the joint. It can also be tendinitis due to inflammation of tendon at the knee joint. Since you had tendon injury 4 years back, this time too it could be a tendon troubling you.
Avatar f tn Anyone who says that it gets rid of the pain is full of it. I thought the pain was bad before I think it is worse now than then.
Avatar m tn t suggest arthritis to me, I have arthritis of the knee and I get pain in the knee, also in muscles that work the knee. I don't get numbness anywhere else. I'm not medically qualiified but a doctor should check this out, whatever it is you will be better off with treatment.
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.
Avatar f tn I'm 55 y/o female fair health had TKR 1/2017 revision 5/2017 had 8 months of PT because of guarded hamstring. On 9/2/18 I fell on both knees my TKR knee has hurt ever since plus I have a dent below R knee just left of center. My PCP wasn't worried about it but did order xrsys on my left knee because it hurts and the kneecap is dented and kinda off center get xray results tomorrow. But my question is could I have messed up my R tkr knee with this fall?
