Avatar m tn Nerve impingement at L5-S1 can cause pain in the knees, although a clinical exam is needed to make an accurate diagnosis. Other causes of referred knee pain are injury to the hip joint and damage to the ligaments and meniscus at the knee joint. Joint fusion may alleviate your symptoms. Hope this helps!
1288586 tn?1271904161 ve been having horrible pains in my left thigh... from my hip, down the front of my thigh and into my knee. it mostly hurts when i'm sitting or laying down. it is a horrible pain that is not ignorable, and it feels deep. i've been going to the chiropractor for it and i have injured my back in the past 8 months. is the pain in my back able to radiate pain down the front of my thigh? i have a hard time sleeping because of this pain, and anti-inflammatories don't work.
Avatar m tn Do you have any referred pain in your thigh or knee? The reason I ask is I do and it is from the torn hip labrum that I have. It is also on my left side. GL to you in your search for the cause of your pain.
Avatar m tn If the knee pain was caused due to poor pressure transmission because of hip joint pain, then correcting the hip problem should take care of the knee pain as well. However, if you have some problem with the knee joint itself, then there will be no relief. You need to run some basic tests for rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune diseases, diabetes and hypothyroidism as all can cause multiple joint pains. Also, an X-ray and MRI of the knee joint will be helpful.
Avatar m tn This would rule out the major cause of arthritis related pain (whether the spine is involving the leg and hip pain or the knee joint is having referred pain in the hips and vice-versa). SO consulting an orthopaedician is must. Let me know, what was the outcome. Feel free to discuss more. Regards...
Avatar m tn However, if the knee pain is due to a local knee problem then the procedure may relieve hip pain but will not remove knee pain. Please discuss this with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
Avatar m tn Possibilities that may need to be considered include chondromalacia, tendonitis, bursitis, fractures, patellar dislocation, injuries to the internal knee ligaments/ menisci, infections/ inflammations, arthritis, cyst formation, bone growths/ tumours, nerve injuries referred pain from the hip etc;. I would suggest consulting an orthopedician for an evaluation and appropriate management. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar f tn The listhesis of the lower back represents instability of this region and osteogenic bone pain from that region can refer to the hip - although this type of pain normal does not travel to the knee. If you have nay further questions email ***@****.
Avatar m tn This knee pain can arise from the knee itself or referred from conditions affecting the hip, ankle or the lower back. MRI spine will reveal the cause whether it is a vertebral fracture, slipped intervertebral disc causing nerve impingement etc since these symptoms started with the back injury. You could take oral anti anxiety medicines like benzodiazepines under medical supervision. If it is difficult, an anesthesiologist could be requested for intravenous sedation or even general anesthesia.
1862575 tn?1319979009 My guess is that it is referred pain. Your drop foot is likely causing you to walk differently that usual. The your altered gait is putting stress on your knee. Prior to havong my hip replaced my gait had become so messed up that it felt like my knee was going to explode. As soon as I got my hip fixed, and my gait returned to normal, my knee stopped hurting.
Avatar f tn The weakness first started in 1998 when someone kicked my leg in from behind me and my knee has given way in 2005, resulting in a bone bruise on my shin from hitting a step on the bus. The bone bruise has healed although I have a dent in my shin from where I hit it. Popping sound when straightening my leg from a bent position. Locking and pain when I walk, mostly when I try to straighten it during mobilisation.
Avatar f tn It showed a huge miniscle tear and tons of fluid behind the knee. All from getting out of bed. It was a sharp shooting pain just like yo udiscribed. sometimes my whole leg would go numb just like yours. Ask your doctor. They could be overlooking something. P.S. the ER doctors did two sets of xrays and "found nothing" but the ortho looked at it for five minutes and knew something was really wrong! It never hurts to ask:) hope i helped!
Avatar f tn Recently I’ve been going to the GP over hip/groin/knee pain; nothing came up on the hip X-ray and now I’m waiting for a letter from the hospital as I’ve been referred to a section there as we don’t know why it’s hurts. However recently, along with the leg and hip pain, the top of my backs been excruciating.
Avatar f tn It started with what felt like an SI sprain when I was running - I iced it, went to PT and it resolved in a matter of days. A few months later, I started having excruciating hip pain when I went from sitting to standing. Gradually, this became more constant with sitting, standing and walking but was relieved completely from lying down. I developed some lower leg pain as well as time went on.
Avatar n tn on the other hand the harley street specialist(the only person to ask me detailed questions for 40 minutes to try and diagnose the problem) says L1/L2 causing the referred pain - who should I believe? Also a pain clinic said I should have a Neck MRI and Pelvic MRI as referred pain can come from there too.
1225331 tn?1333365769 Hi Kelly - When one part of your body is not working well others will try to compensate. This kind of compensation often leads to over/misuse of the healthy parts. This misuse can result in "referred Pain". If spasticity is causing you to put undue stress on you hip, relieving the spasticity may "fix" you hip. Been there, done that. I do not think my hip issues were caused by my MS, but they did cause problems elsewhere.
Avatar f tn Hi everyone, I am pretty desperate for any advice on an issue with my son. Here is what is going on with him: He is 11 1/2 years old with Asperger's, ADHD and anxiety issues. He is on meds and we go for weekly therapy- these issues are mainly under control. 17 days ago he was getting down from his loft bed and "missed" the ladder. He got his left foot caught in the rung of the ladder and fell backward landing on the floor but really hurt his foot and knee from getting it caught.
Avatar m tn However, in the past 4 months or so, I have been experiencing hip and knee pain if I sit for a period of time. I also have a great deal of muscle stiffness and pain in the mornings when I wake up, which I have never had. I have never had arthritis and have always been extremely active. I started taking the Progesterone treatment after saliva tests showed a deficiency and I was also experiencing some hot flashes. I had my uterus removed due to excessive vaginal bleeding about 5 years ago.
713151 tn?1229544393 Low back pain in the sacral and sacroiliac regions is most likely be due to problems in the gluteus medius. Pain referred from trigger points in the gluteus medius is less likely to involve the thigh; gluteus maximus trigger points restricts flexion at the hip whilst Piriformis trigger points restricts medial rotation. I hope this was helpful. Please take care and good luck in finding a diagnosis.
Avatar m tn hi i am a girl aged 16 and for the past while i have increasing pain in my right hip while playing sports and expecialy sitting down? the back of my knee and thigh hurts aswel, sometimes when i move my hip usual cracks? it got so bad i was getting it hard to walk but now its not as bad? i also got some lower back pain ..what do you think is up???
Avatar m tn pain originating from outside the knee joint, but experienced in the region of the knee joint - commonly from the hip (eg hip arthritis) or lower spine (eg spinal stenosis - a narrowing of the spinal canal - or a 'popped' disc). This kind of pain is called referred pain.
Avatar f tn I was fitted for orthotic shoes from there, and that has GREATLY decreased my foot/arch and knee/hip pain, and also helps with posture, and I'm sure many other things I just have not noticed or cannot put my finger on. What symptoms do you have that the ENT thinks you have TMJ problems??? You may need to see a neurologist.
Avatar n tn Alright, I have this pain in my right side of my hip. The pain isn't really in my hip but it's a shooting pain from my hip to my knee. I only have the pain when I take weight off my right leg for about a minute or more or when I put all my weight on my right leg for about a minute or more. First it started off every once in a while, but now after a month the pain is every time I put/ take the weight off my right leg. It is not from my sciatic nerve.
Avatar f tn My right hip hurts all the time and its a constant pain shooting down to my knee :( sounds weird but it feels like I need to pull my leg outta the socket and push it back in. Anyone else experiencing this ?
