Hip 2 foot leg pain, sometimes foot turns ice cold. Broke knee cap years ago, not diabetic, not over weight. Cause for concern?
Go see a doctor: Pain that radiates from hip 2 toes is usually caused by a pathology above the hip. Your patella (knee cap) fracture, most likely, has nothing to do with this pain.
