Common Questions and Answers about Knee problems numbness


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 n tn I had my hip replacement in nov 2007 and had the same promlem. my dr explained the knee pain/numbness is due to the manipulation of the bones during surgury. 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.

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 n tn It could be a muscle injury to the gastrocnemius (calf) muscles, the hamstrings, or the capsule in the back of the knee. The numbness bothers me, there could be an injury to you peroneal nerve, or worse a blood clot.

I, too have constant ache in the lumbar region and my back and knees suddenly give way on me all the time, I was treating my knee weekness with double dose magnesium and at first it helped a lot but now that doesn't seem to work anymore.
Avatar n tn After partial knee replacement I lost feeling in my foot. i now can move my toe, but still can't feel it. Does movement in my toe mean I am starting to get the feeling back?
Avatar m tn The numbness doesn'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 m tn The pain seems to get worse with low activity and taking walk seems to help sooth most of the symptom, but the right knee pain. I also have numbness of my left finger tips, but this has been happening for years now. My doctor has done every test he can think of, including Nerve test, Neurological exam, two MRI (Head and Legs) and I've been tested twice for Diabetes and it came up negative (This is normally the first thing most people suggest), Acupuncture, Physical Therapy, Chiropractor.

I thought my problems had stopped there but in september 2010 i started getting twitches in my eye and lip and numbness down the one side of my body i seen my GP he told me the pain in my chest was Costacronditis.
Avatar f tn Hi my right knee is causing me a lot of problems as well as other unrelated things and I'm currently off work because it affects my job. I've had this since April this year but I did notice my right knee go red, hot and swollen in March. This resolved itself within a few days but I continue to have pain, locking, popping and weakness.
Avatar n tn I also have numbness and intermittent tingling on my right side running from my buttocks down to just below my right knee on the outer side of my leg. There is no pain, just numbness. My nurologist does not know what has caused the condition. Viagra / Cialis helps with an erection some of the time, but I can not maintain it to ejaculation. I can ejaculate by masterbating, but can only get a strong erection about 30% of the time. Morning erections are usually strong and lasting however.
17909019 tn?1461282655 From there it traveled to the back of my throat and traveled all the way down to my left knee. Did I mention this is all along the left side of my body? And even affected my vision and it gave me a migraine on the top right temple of my head. Any suggestions?
198727 tn?1352054382 Oh my, this has been going on for 2 weeks. I keep checking my knee thinking I have spilled something and there is no wet spot! It happens several times a day...! I suffer from migrane headaces, hypothyroisism that is in a consatnt upward climb, vitaligo, granuloma annulare...should I go to my neurologist?
Avatar f tn I am 44yo and have been a fitness trainer and strength coach for the USMC for over 17 years. I dislocated my knee while instructing a class and did major damage and ended up having a knee replacement in December 2013. Upon waking up in recovery I was given a femoral nerve block for pain. While they were inserting the nerve block I experienced extreme pain that felt like I was being shocked repeatedly in my knee for about 10seconds which caused me to scream like I have never before.
439253 tn?1240835565 Welcome to the forum! Sorry, during the weekend we're not quite as active. Just hang in there - we'll get to ya! Err... um... my experience is that it takes a while to recover from a flare. In some cases, there may not be complete recovery. Leg weakness comes and goes with me. I've had problems with my right leg since 2007. It's gotten a little better, but my knee still folds on me, and it doesn't have the same amount of sensation that the left one does.
Avatar m tn I wanted to know what is the word for that stuff that happens when you put pressure on nerves for long time, like while sleeping when you put your arm under your head or when sitting a squat position and then you feel like numbness and like insects rumbling in the area around the knee and mainly behind the knee area, when ever it happens it is just for a couple of minutes and then slowly goes of and then its like it never happened.
Avatar f tn m not sure how a nerve in the arm or shoulder might affect the leg as well but as for the arm and hand, yes, I can see where you might have problems. After one of my ablations (done through the femoral veins) a nerve was bruised on the right side. I had deep aching pain in the groin and down to the knee. It hurt to sit at all and when I did, I kept my leg stretched out as far as I could. It eventually cleared up but it took a few months.
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.
Avatar n tn Yeah, me too. My husband smokes and although I quit over a year ago, I've never had a problem with it until the past couple weeks - it almost gags me. Also, I've been getting this feeling in my feet and also in my right knee that feels like an electrical current being shot into me. I have dr appt on Thurs and planned to talk to him about it.
