I was doing yoga & suddenly got foot & knee pain. Its been 2 weeks & still the pain is same. When I did standing stretching exercise, it got better.?

Hard to say: There are multiple potential causes and usually a detailed exam can determine the cause. It would seem a little unusual to have injured your knee and foot at the same time (although it is possible), so one cause might be a sciatica. In sciatica, a nerve can be irritated in the back and cause pain running from the knee to the foot. Consider being seen. ...Read more

I fell a week ago, my knee pain has increased and now my foot and leg has been tingling and my foot is colder then the other. What to do?

Knee ligament injury: Since your symptoms seem to be worsening with time, you should get it checked out at the earliest by your primary physician for getting imaging study, pref an MRI, to define the anatomy, and referral to orthopedics as indicated.

I have had lateral knee pain for a while and have had an MRI showing nothings wrong, can a broken foot be the cause? Thanks

I have had lateral knee pain for a while and have had an MRI showing nothings wrong, can a broken foot be the cause? Thanks

Abnormal gait- Yes!: A foot injury or fracture can easily lead to abnormal gait or walking patterns and secondarily cause knee pain as the muscles are used in an abnormal fashion resulting in pain and overuse. Lateral knee pain may be from a tight/irritated iliotibial band as it rides across the lateral femoral condyle and inserts onto the top of the tibia. Evaluation by your orthopaedic surgeon is indicated. ...Read more

I am experiencing knee pain since 3 months in one leg. My foot as always had an internal rotation. It's never been treated. Orthopedics or orthosis?

Orthopedics: See an orthopedic surgeon to evaluate all the possible issues with your situation. Going straight to orthotics assumes you have a firm diagnosis which you don't have at this point. ...Read more

Injuried knee for 2 month front/both sides of knee pain swelling front and back of knee, nerves in back of knee cause tingling in foot, can't bend kne?

Need an evaluation: You have a knee Ed fusion, and swelling in the back is a Baker cyst, and that is compressing on certain structures. There are other things I can mimic this. You need to have imaging, and evaluation, fluid removed from the knee, and a good idea of what the internal structural problems that may be compressing the nerve or vascular structures in the back of the knee ...Read more

Pain in right upper thigh slightly abv knee (inner side) and calf with foot numbness on and off and extreme knee pain when sitting, no clots, ideas?

Knee, hip, back: If the thigh problem is immediately above the knee this could be a knee problem (cartilage, bakers cyst, joint problem). Knee pain rarely radiates up the leg. Anything higher up is unlikely to be knee. This could also be referred pain from the hip or back. A good physical examination by someone experienced with these problems should give you the answer. ...Read more

two screws to fix foot 7 weeks ago. Severe calf, ankle and knee pain in affected leg. No redness or warmth just awful pain. On blood thinners 9 weeks?

The nuts and bolts.: When a patient has calf pain after foot surgery concern is raised as to a possible clot or inflamed blood vessel. Having said that, similar symptoms can occur, especially weeks after the surgery, from keeping the foot and/or ankle in a unfamiliar position of immobilization. It is best to talk to your surgeon and have him get down to the nuts and bolts of your symptoms. ...Read more

Knee hyper extended from left foot drop, fitted for afo, however knee pain is worse than last two yrs should I see orthopedist, cortisone inj past?

Knee hyper extended from left foot drop, fitted for afo, however knee pain is worse than last two yrs should I see orthopedist, cortisone inj past?

Need more info...: I am wondering if the foot drop has resulted in a plantarflexion contracture. This would be the likely cause of knee hyperextension due to the plantarflexion-knee extension couple. If this is the case and your AFO is set in too much plantarflexion to accomodate this, this could make it worse. On the other hand, you may simply have knee arthritis. I would see your orthopaedist. ...Read more

Knee pain 2yrs rec'd cortisone inj cause from hyperextend knee from foot drop consulted ortho said no more cortisone inj pres meloxicam 7.5mg ideas

Foot drop: Usually (but not always) comes from a problem (compression/severance/injury) to the common peroneal nerve, which runs along the outside of the knee just below it (not the typical place where knee injections are given). Your foot drop may or may have been caused by the injection, but your doctor probably wants to err on the side of caution. ...Read more

Waiting to see foot doctor for clawed toes and pain in big toe but now feels like walking on a marble so walk on outside of foot causes knee pain?

Exam is essential.: Clawing toes can bring about symptoms much like those you describe. Certainly big toe pain can cause you to shift the weight to the outside of your foot. This type of compensation can lead to knee pain. I am afraid that not much can be done until you have been seen in a hands on theater. You might push your referring doctor for an earlier exam date to avoid further complications. ...Read more

Knee Nightmare: Knee pain can be a symptom of a local problem or referred from another joint like the hip or ankle. Most intrinsic problems of the knee, if acute, are due to a soft tissue, supporting structure injury. Inflammatory diseases can also affect the knee (gout, rheumatoid and osteoarthritis). Ice added to any regimen is great, inexpensive and can be repeated indefinitely with little adverse effects. ...Read more
