I was a runner as a teen and notice that now running causes me hip and knee pain I never had before. Why is this and what can I do?

Weekend warrior: The most obvious answer is -- you are out of shape. You are still young, but not as young as you used to be. You may need to start slow and build up miles gradually. Also, stretch after warming up and after. With hip and knee (especially the outside/lateral part of knee) pain you may have a tight iliotibial band (itb). Google stretches for that. Good luck. ...Read more

I started having knee pain and they crack all the time. My dr said I have fluid in my knees caused from being a woman and we have wider hips. Really?

No: Not sure what your doctor said, but what he/she probably meant is that kneecap (patella) pain is very common in young women given the angle that their quadricep muscle makes given relatively wider hips. This angle tends to pull the kneecap out to the side and that can cause pain. Simple knee stretching and exercises should help. ...Read more

Parathyroid removed dec 13, vit d now 22 & pth 90. What would cause the low d and high pth. I'm extremely fatigued with hip and knee pain.

Parathyroid removed dec 13, vit d now 22 & pth 90. What would cause the low d and high pth. I'm extremely fatigued with hip and knee pain.

Parathyroid: Presumably not all your parathyroids were removed. Presumably you had hyperparathyroidism, and the bad one was removed (typically there are 4 parathyroids).
If your vit d is low, your parathyroid hormone will be high, trying to keep your blood Ca normal. Vit D is low because you are not taking Vit D or getting sun exposure. Easy solution: take Vit D. OTC 2000 U/day. ...Read more

Hip bursitis is much more common on the 'outside' of your hip (greater trochanter)and usually is painful to sleep on the affected side. See your physician soon for examination and to ' rule out' more serious conditions (blood clot).Best of luck.! ...Read more
