Hi I have a huge problem for about a year now I expericed knee pain and hip pin but it wasent till last night when my whole body starts to pain in eve?
See a Doctor: I wish I could help more, but acute onset of full body pain is difficult to diagnose without a thorough history and physical exam.

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

Does knee pain send pain to hips? I believe my left knee caused my left hip to hurt and most recently the opposite hip. Best exercise and treatment?
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.

I have been told I have anterior knee pain, but the pain is in my hips and ankles too and I'm flatfooted. Is there anything else this pain could be?
Could be alignment: Alignment in the legs begins from the ground up - runners who are flat footed are at higher risk for plantar fasciitis, anterior knee pain (such as patellofemoral pain & patellar tendinitis), and even hip pain due to the way their feet align at rest and while in motion. Try some over the counter arch supports - such as super feet or smart sole brands. Avoid gel at the arch. ...Read more
