Avatar m tn Since two years i am having pain in my both legs ,specially in left leg. Pain starts from above the knee and goes till calf. pain is more near knee. pain increases when i stand for a long time or do some intense physical work. i have gone through all medical tests like X-ray, MRI of knee and spine, Arthristis profile, diabetes , but nothing is there in these tests. it is more of a muscular pain. and it keeps on increasing. Doctor doesn't said anything. gave some muscles relaxants.

Avatar f tn ve had it in my left knee for over 2 years now and i want it gone. The doctor referred me to go to the physio, which i did for a while. He would massage my calf muscles and told me to do yoga to loosen my hip and calf muscles. I stopped going to him only because he said the yoga was the only thing that could help it. I have been doing yoga now for almost 2 years and there has been no improvement in the slightest!

Avatar m tn I had pain in the right calve muscle below the knee and the lower calve due to excessive streching about 3 weeks ago. The pain and uncomfort forced me to see a doctor who advised that I strained the calve muscle and had to use crutches. When I stand on the leg, it seems to swell slightly and the veins stands out and swells, particularly below the knee on the front inside of the calve and once I take the pressure off the leg and relax it the vein swelling subsides.
Avatar m tn I have had knee pain in my left knee for about 3 years now. When i am sitting on a chair and i straighten my left leg the pain occurs, and there must be something wrong because my right knee is fine. I also get the pain when i am lying in bed. The pain is most apparent when i lift my left knee cap, you know how you can tense or whatever and your knee cap will move up.
Avatar f tn knee pain. I have profound swelling in my leg below my knee replacement that I had done in 2012. I cannot wear socks because they cause me pain. Can you tell me what is wrong?
Avatar m tn Also to mention, when the body is in the stage of stiffness, there is too much of pain in the knee cap joint, pain in the back & probably if I try to speak whn there is stiffness, I would feel some kind of a pain in the throat.
Avatar f tn If the pain comes on bending the knee, 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 while playing), flat feet, over tight or over lax muscles around the knee joint.
Avatar m tn I have been suffering from this for around two months now. I feel pain in and around my knees in the mornings mostly the pain is around most of the time but it's really hurts in the morning or after sitting for a long while in the office. Its also hurts a lot when I sit for a long while in an air-conditioned place that’s why at office I take a walk every half hour out side in the sun.
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.
5715171 tn?1372914664 This happens due to malialignment 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. Other possibilities are bursitis (inflammation of fluid filled sac over joints), tendonitis (inflammation of cords joining muscles to bones) or due to weakness of patellar bone.
Avatar m tn i suddenly felt pain in the back of my right calf, right below the knee side, squeezing it, felt painful, but didnt notice any reddish color, on swelling, then it went to both calves. when sitting or standing, there is no pain, as i get up or start to walk there is this pain. i searched online,as i was told it is Charlie's horse, but rather, they mentioned DVT, or clot. The left calf is ok now,but the right calf,still has this pain. N.
Avatar f tn His condition of his muscles weakening in his arms was gradual with the deteriation of his joints. Could this have been caused with the prednizone he was taking and the pain killers? Then when he went to the hospital the first time the difference in his arms shrinking and his muscle problems in his arms was very noticeable. It was like overnight his arms shrunk and he had trouble using his hands and arms to lift or reach.

892665 tn?1259171714 We have had a series of small little storm symptoms coming in and out. I have so much OA knee pain. I was dx with OA in my knees at 17 years old. I have been dealing with it for 32 years! I have tried years of meds, heating pads, cortisone shots, weight loss, aqua aerobics, physical therapy, Synvisc etc... I have limited mobility. I can get only about a 90 degree bend in my right knee on bad days, about 95-100 degrees on good days and I can’t straighten it to save my life.
Avatar n tn It's not in the tendons. It is in the muscles around the knee. Also, my right calf gets sore and very weak but not all the time. I also can get severe pain in my left hip when sleeping on it at night. I have tendinitis in my wrist and this is not the same. This is stiffness and sever ache through the whole knee area in both knees. Pain is also bad in the morning when i wake up since the knees are very stiff. I first thought arthritis but this is definitely more than joint pain.
Avatar f tn Compression of nerve, deep vein thrombosis too could be causing leg pain or it could just be overtired muscles. So if nothing is found in the knee, then these possibilities will have to be looked at by nerve conduction studies, MRIs or by duplex ultrasounds. At times dehydration and electrolyte mbalance is the cause for calf pain. So this too would need to be ruled out. Treatment will follow correct diagnosis. Do consult an orthopedic specialist at the earliest.

1749417 tn?1331996992 Slowly it became the whole leg and all the muscles in that leg are extremly tight and sore. In the mornings it takes me awhile to be able to bend the leg to get out of bed. And it never lessens up ever. the more i walk the tighter the muscles get, if thats possible, and hurts bad. Some of you know me from posting before. I am diagnosed with ms by the state disablility doc but my neurologist wont accept that. He still wants to wait and see.
Avatar f tn However, it would disappear almost immediately when I straightened it. Recently, I have been having more continuous pain, it feels like I should have a floor burn on my knee but there isn't one. It also has this prickly feeling to it. I saw an orthopedist who simply said the pain was due to overuse of my muscle, however he never asked me to describe the pain. I have had sore and overused muscles before and it has felt nothing like this. Does anyone know if he is correct in his diagnosis?
1070610 tn?1279274410 Hi Ess, I went to my Dr and told her about this and not being able to bend and turn knee out without pain in the thigh or knee cap. She wanted me to try anti- imflamitries for a week first and if no better then physio. I am reluctant to try the anti inflammitries so was going to go back in a week and request physio. It is definitely progressing up my thigh and hamstring. Some times when walking , if I step out to the side or cross infront of the other leg I get sharp pain down the leg.
