497951 tn?1209829733 I have knee problems and will most likely need a knee replacement on my right knee eventually. Also, I have heard the excuse about *scar tissue.* I had carpal tunnel surgery on my right wrist in Oct. 2007, and it still bothers me and the doctor blamed it on scar tissue. I don't know. I'll be honest, I don't really know what to tell you. I have a lot of joint and muscle pain and other problems with blood pressure, cholesterol, etc.
Avatar n tn I guess they pull on and twist the bone around quite a bit so the nerves around the knee take a beating. If I remember right it was about 2 months that it stayed really numb then did gradually come back. It has been 18 months now and I still have an area of about the size of a half dollar on the inside side of my knee that is numb. It's not as bothersome as the hip pain prior to surgury though.
Avatar n tn I also know my family has heriditary knee problems but I am trying to stay active and work out to keep the blood flowing properly. Sometimes that could be the easiest solution.
Avatar f tn I am sorry about your knee problems. I too have knee problems which were made worse by physical therapy. The one thing I have found that helps me is a good chiropractor treating my knee. Since you are on maternity leave I suggest that you also may want to find a good chiropractor to also treat your back.
Avatar f tn Our body functions as a unit. Nerves run through the knee and into the foot. If those nerves are inflamed, irritated, damaged, compresses and/or in any way compromised your pain will travel down into your leg. There are also tendons, ligaments and muscles that either lie close to...or are a part of the structure of your knee. They are under great stress trying to support a failing joint and keep it stable.
Avatar f tn i have knee problems and shoulder problems and elbow problems carpal tunnel for the second time...it is due to the nerves are dying and they are slowly taking over me..I know some day i will be in a motor chair and i pray not yet...I have a lose screw in my lumbar fusion i had in 03 and it is sticking in my disc i was told a few nights ago so it is sending my sciatic nerve wild...
Avatar m tn ve heard over and over that when people get radio frequency ablation (a procedure where the nerves are actually BURNED by radio waves), the nerves grow back! And, sometimes they grow back and cause WORSE pain than before (and the patient wishes they never had the procedure done). And, sometimes the nerves grow back so slowly that people sing the praises of Radio Frequency Ablation, and some times the nerves grow back and people go back and get the procedure done again in a few months.
Avatar f tn Are these symptoms likely related to my back problems? I am slightly concerned since my nerve pain usually manifests itself differently. Thank you for reading my post and for any comments you may have.
Avatar n tn Three weeks post-op I developed severe pain in my outer thigh that ran from my outer hip to just below my knee on the right side. It progressed in the following weeks to the left side as well. The leg pain and tightness causes my toes to go numb. EMG results have not showed anything significant. I have had hip MRI and X-Rays that showed nothing as well. My SI fusion has healed normally. No one can seem to figure out why I am in so much pain. I have had months of PT.
Avatar m tn 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. At times it is also due to low sodium, potassium, magnesium or calcium in the body.
Avatar n tn I think it was likely caused by swelling pressing on the nerves around my knee - and also may be the result of having nerves cut, then being very sensitive while they regenerate. I, too, had pain radiating downward, and had bad leg and foot cramps that woke me up at night. As for swelling in your foot, that could come from the swelling in your knee draining down into your foot due to gravity. Any swelling will make the swollen area tender, even if it's not the injured area.
Avatar n tn I did start on Lyrica yesterday to calm the nerves. At times just a sheet against the knee will agitate the nerves. Is this normal? Possibly when he took out the one nerve maybe all the nerves are adjusting? The Dr. said my nerve was very tiny so he clipped it instead of tucking it into a muscle. I do have a dent in that area. I massage it to try to desensitise. This site is good because I have someone to talk with about this. Thank you and Blessings ...
Avatar m tn Only in the last 2-3 weeks I started developing pain in the knee on the weaker leg, which I suspected was because of uneven pressure on that knee due to the muscle weakness, which my doctor agreed with. Now my neurosurgeon suspected and confirmed another problem through a CT scan. I have spina befida, which apparently is a birth defect. This he suspects is causing a downward pull on my spinal cord, i.e., a tethered cord.
Avatar f tn for about 2wks now my right knee has been giving me problems in 33 years old and im on high blood pressure meds and the reason unknown why i have it and my ?
Avatar f tn Pain occurs either spontaneously or when the patient touches the scar. In most cases this could be due to damage to the nerves in the knee joint. If you experience pain then you need to see your orthopaedician. For the removal of scar, opinion of plastic surgeon would be helpful. All the best.
15334891 tn?1439916367 Yes, I have seen neurologist for this issue but after chacking he said that there is no nerve problem
Avatar f tn Wrap the knee with ace bandage or black knee support until u can get to the doc. does your knee crack? Take ibuprofen as directed for swelling. Hope you can get to the ER or doc soon.
Avatar f tn leg weakness (causes my walking to be more of a waddle) - numbness - calluses - knee problems (due to the weakness which would cause more pressure to the knees.) That's my theory but from the neuro's mind I don't have no problem even though he was the one that noticed the weakness.:( Sorry for the vent. Just had to get it out!!
Avatar m tn thanks to all with advice yes I have had rehab on all occas even with this last op 2 weeks ago where the nerves that were causing some of the pain I have had oblation of the nerves done I do pool exercise and physio in a rehab place first inpatient for 2 weeks now outpatient for a month 3 days a week 2 hrs a day but still I have pain when I walk when sitting or lying down there is no pain at all but I cannot sit all day I need to walk I don't know if it is scar tissue no one knows just a raw
Avatar n tn Go to your doctor and get it checked. It could be leading up to serious problems. There is a chart on my profile that shows the nerves and what they control. It may give you a idea of what the problem could be. Best wishes.
2217782 tn?1394363972 Today I tried out a workout video I got for christmas and my main struggles was my knees. Everytime I done a squat there were lots of crackling noises coming from my knee caps. As far as I can guess it must be bone or cartilage? I would love to get fit but I'm stuck I'm a catch 22 situation here. Could anyone suggest what this could be? Is there any supplements I could be taking? I really need answers this surely can't be normal for a 19 year old?
Avatar n tn My job is stressful at times but this feels like more anxiety than it used to. Just wondering if it is my nerves feeling the stress possibly neuroapathy. Any comments would be appreciated.
