Avatar f tn I had some mild pain in the calf of my left leg. My doctor said it is not a clot. The pain has gotten extensively worse now affecting the knee. 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.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with Osteo arthritis and my right knee is bone on bone - however I seem to have severe leg problems even though my knee rarely hurts. Also my lower pain constantly hurts. I can not walk a half block nor stand for more than 5 minutes, my legs burn and ache constantly and I have no leg strength. No one else I know has these problems with the arthritis - aches and pains yes - but they can walk - I can barely walk and it hurts to do so. No pain medications even ease the pain.

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 I have pain behind my knee and my leg is swollen in the calf. I was checked for blood clot and it was negative. I feel heat coming out of my knee when I place an ice pack on it. It warms the ice pack quickly. My thigh is swollen too, but all the pain is in my knee. It hurts to touch the bones in my knee. My ankles are a little swollen and also the calf on the other leg. I have had a meniscus tear and arthritis in one knee and baker's cyst in the other.
Avatar f tn ( but i have a lot of pain in my knee, and my hip today. I sometimes get this pain that radiates from my ankles, up to my knee and right now i just feel it in my knee, its a very uncomfortable feeling.
Avatar m tn I just had recurring pain in the knee. So far so good. I have had no after effects and it has worked good. I don't have quite the active lifestyle you have either. But I was really impressed with results. My next option is knee replacement also. Good luck. P.s. You don't ever have to take any more after the first round if that workks for you, and if I'm not mistaken you are only allowed to take 2rounds at a time.
Avatar f tn For the past couple of weeks I have experienced a strange burning pain on the front of my right thigh. The pain is only in a small area, not my whole leg. It's usually after I stand up after I've been sitting for awhile, but the pain has woken me up at night a couple of times, too. A few times I've just lightly touched it, or my clothing has rubbed up against it and it has caused pain. The pain goes away after a few seconds. What could be causing this?
412969 tn?1224334248 so i know about ankles and feet swelling during pregnancy but for the past 2 days ive had swelling in just one leg? just one ankle is huge and my foot and today my knee started hurting pretty bad. any had this happen? know what may cause it? im not to worried yet as where the swelling is it isnt painful and my knees have always been bad so it "may" not be related... but just in case im asking for input=) thanks ladies!
Avatar n tn I've been having left leg pain - only at night. The pain is dull, nagging pain throughout my entire leg that doesn't go away with a massage or moving around. This pain has been bothering me after I had a baby. However, before I was pregnant, my legs falls asleep while I'm asleep. When I get up in the middle of the night to use the restroom, I would fall flat on my face. I'm not sure if these two correlated, but thought I should mention it. Any info would be appreciated!
10562950 tn?1411070041 I've had leg cramps.. like in my calves.. but this is knee and my whole leg hurts from top to bottom.. Both legs.. i woke up in the middle of the night crying in pain. Anybody else experience this??
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 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.
Avatar m tn The other leg is perfectly fine in those positions, suffering from neither the stiffness nor the pain in those positions. There is never any swelling in the problem knee. I have some crepitis in both knees but have had this for 10 years with no pain (basically some crackling noise when going up stairs).
Avatar n tn wondering what causes pain in my right leg during the night? It doesn't hurt at all during the day.It's not a cramp, it just hurts. Thanks!!
Avatar f tn The commonest cause of pain in the calf is DVT or deep vein thrombosis and clots and post exercise. Pain in the calf area can also be due to pinched spinal nerves in the lumbo-sacral area or a pinched nerve at the knee joint. A nerve conduction study should be done. A MRI of the lumbar spine should also be able to throw some light. A deep vein thrombophlebitis or intermittent claudication (spontaneous spasm and relaxation of arteries) can also cause similar symptoms.
Avatar f tn I have pain in leg that started in calf of leg, then went to knee. Now my entire leg hurts when I try to walk. I went to my doctor and he said it is arthritis of the knee. Can arthritis of the knee affect the leg this badly, to the point that I cannot put all my weight on the leg and am limping? He ruled out any clots in leg. Thanks for any advice you can offer.
Avatar f tn Yes, I too, have been having pain in my left leg, right below the knee. It started about two week ago. The doctor says this is "referred pain." He put me on a 6 day steroid pack and if this doesn't alleviate the pain, I'm to have an x ray done. Upon rising from sitting/sleeping position, I can barely put pressure on my left leg. The pain only lasts two to three minutes and I'm fine until I've sat for awhile and it starts over again. I will keep you informed...
670987 tn?1284498786 Hey everyone, I am pregnant with my third child (about 17 weeks) with this pregnancy it has been one thing after another. First of all I have headaches everyday, now for about the last 5 hours or so, I've had a constant throbbing pain in my knee cap on my left leg. There is a bruised colored knot on the left side but that isn't where the pain is. The pain is around the bottom of the knee cap itself. I've tried a heating pad, ice, tylenol, etc. Not helping.
Avatar m tn Dear Edward, I think you might need to ask for the card. You could have tiny fractures in your knee caps I would think from the sounds of it. If you don't see about it now, you might not work at all later on or it could be the ligaments and one day, your knee cap might slip out of place. My daughter had this happen coming down a flight of stairs after injuring her knee cap. Maybe a little help now will stop a lot of help later. An acrobat?? wow. I can't imagine.
1306931 tn?1273540199 All I can suggest is that I take Nsaids like voltaren and it helps me with the arthritis in my knee. I also wear a knee brace when I walk or do any kind of physical activity. My knee makes a lot of crunching noises and sometimes its painful, but at least I can walk now. But yes you would need to call your orthopedic on your knee.
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. Apply hot, or cold packs to the knee. Use the one that helps the best. If the climate is hot and you work out a lot and sweat, you may require more than the 3 litres of water throughout the day.
Avatar f tn It's been more than two months since my last injection. So I don't think it's going to get better. The injections took away pretty much all my pain for the 3 weeks I was getting them and then for about 2 weeks after that. Then it just came right back. It's not really a shooting pain it's more of a stabbing pain in one spot. The only part of my leg that aches is my knee.
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 f tn How does it fell if you stand on that leg only, and twist your upper leg, while lower leg stays straight? Could be a meniscus tear. But, it could just be a contusion.
