Knee cracking pain only going upstairs, knee collapsed, crunching sounds, lack of extension patella not tracking as per physio what is the cause?
Patellofemoral issue: The likely cause of your condition is that the knee cap is getting off track when you bend your knee due to lack of quad muscle strength (VMO). This causes the knee cap to track laterally when you bend your knee and leads to cartilage irritation (chondromalacia) under the knee cap which can cause aching and produce crunching sounds. Keep working with your physio to correct the problem. ...Read more

I have transverse myelitis, I have been doing physio for 14 months, but when I walk my right knee just collapses forward as soon as I weight-bare why?
UMN weakness: Upper motor neuron weakness from inflammation injury of the spine (transverse myelitis) typically causes spastic weakness: even though the muscles are tight and may at times cramp or spasm, they are still weak b/c the brain lost control over voluntary movement of affected muscles. Ask about adding neuromuscular electrical stimulator (nmes) to rehab routine. Good luck! ...Read more

Comments: I am guessing your concern focuses on prognosis, and hopefully, you are in a therapeutic program involving physical therapy and bracing. Even passive exercise will provide value. Your described reactions are to be expected at this point, and expect some further healing over the next 6-7 months. The ultimate degree of recovery cannot clearly be predicted, but keep working. All the best for you. ...Read more
After sitting and rising left leg threatens to collapse. Once several steps. All ok some pain in calf?
Hello, I have no history of leg trama but when I try to run my leg hurts to the point I almost collapse. I am fine walking, no visible damage?
Shin pain: The pain could be several things. The most severe would be a stress fracture. This is usually manifested by very localized tenderness, as opposed to other causes which would be more generalized pain. "shin splints" and other inflammatory issues such as periostitis and medial distal tibial stress syndrome can be just as painful, but are less serious as they generally do not lead to more severe complications. If left untreated, a stress fracture in the tibia can progress to a full blown fracture. The best thing for you to do is have an xray and an evaluation from an orthopedic surgeon. Not all stress fractures will show up on an initial xray, and sometimes bone scans or mris are needed if indicated. Regardless of the diagnosis, cross training with lower impact exercise is suggested (swimming, aqua jogging, biking, elliptical, etc.). ...Read more

Could goosebumps only on left leg along with occasional collapse of left leg be related to migraines in my right side of brain?
Yes: Sounds like a focal sensory/autonomic symptom.Get a more detailed answer ›
F/U prev (?)...l4 collapse w/o herniation, 2 days post epdrl, (L) leg numb when walking more than a few feet, bottom of foot tickle sensation. Worry??
Not if present prior: If the symptoms are similar to prior to epidural steroid injection, then no need to worry. If they are new, the injection may have irritated a nerve specifically S1 nerve. Even then unless you have horrible and intractable pain, I would simply watch it. Most likely will slowly go away. If terrible pain, see you spine surgeon and think of repeat MRI of lumbar spine. ...Read more
For the past 4 months, I've been having muscle twitching in my arms and legs and knee collapsing. Does this need to be evaluated or can I let it be?
Get it evaluated: That's my opinion. You could get some labs done and a good neuromuscular examination (maybe by a good neurologist) and get appropriate diagnostic testing. You could have a condition known as benign fasciculations but if your knees are collapsing then, you should go in for medical attention. ...Read more

Possibly: Prolotherapy is well researched and offered treatment that has shown good success. The basic theory is to strengthen the ligaments around the joint and therefore reducing stress on the joint by tightening them up. Pretty cool stuff. There are some other treatments like stem cell injections that can help as well. Neither of these treatments are covered by medical insurance though. ...Read more
