Please get examined: With continued pain after a trauma, a physical exam and possible imaging studies are necessary to evaluate your condition. A knee "buckling" ie giving way is a sign often of an injury in the joint to either the meniscus or a ligament such as the ACL. Please get it examined.
A 67-year-old male asked:
Dr. Jan Szatkowski

Please get evaluated: With continued pain that is not improved with conservative management. Further evaluation is necessary. The differential includes possible stress fracture, gout, arthritis flare up, blood clot, tendonitis etc. A thorough physical examination and possible imaging will be able to narrow this down. Good luck and hope you feel better soon.

Get evaluated : Start up heel pain can be related to plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendinitis commonly. However if you have any calf pain or swelling please get evaluated to rule out any other issue. A simple exam can often differentiate between the multiple types of heel pain.
