Lateral right knee ache,vit d level is 17,should vit d tablet be taken?can this level of vit d cause muscle ache in knee?

Lateral right knee ache,vit d level is 17,should vit d tablet be taken?can this level of vit d cause muscle ache in knee?

Perthes diagnosis @age 4. Now hip/knee ache often esp if cold or about to storm. Lately when hip hurts other random joints ache. 26 too young for arthritis?

See MD: Perthes disease can cause hip problems later in life .

Best option is to see an orthopedic surgeon for evaluation and x-rays . Best of luck! ...Read more

I keep having knee pain behind my knee 18 months post op. Acl reconstruction, what do I do?

I keep having knee pain behind my knee 18 months post op. Acl reconstruction, what do I do?

Several reasons: When you tear your acl you not only injury the ligament but can also damage the joint capsule & joint surface. I would discuss this with your doctor to find out what was found out at surgery. In the interim i would suggest mild anti-inflammatories, ice it at night. Continue to stretch and do low impact exercises. ...Read more
