I have been having extreme hip, knee and ankle pain but no swelling. My daughter has lupus and I have been tested 4 times but my blood work comes back?

Varies: There are a lot of potential causes; usually it is some structural problem in these areas, or a radicular pain from a "pinched nerve" in the back, or an inflammatory condition. A detailed exam and appropriate studies can usually determine the cause. Don't hesitate to get a second opinion if they are having trouble coming up with a diagnosis. ...Read more

Ache on outside of one leg from hip to ankle. Knee has some pain as well especially when bending. No swelling.

Sciatica: Sciatica can have the symptoms you are describing; the pain can begin in the gluteals then travel down the side of the leg behind the knee into the foot. You must stretch the area with Bands, use ice first than heat and take anti inflammatory medications. Foot orthotics may help too by stabilizing your hair. Daily stretching pre and post work outs are important. ...Read more

Sounds like a nerve: Issue, ie, spine lesion in the lower back. The areas you have problems with are from L1 level down to l5-s1. So get checked by pcp and possible referral to a spine doc /orthopod. You probably have arthritis (spondylitis) with some disc lesions.
Avoid bending, lifting heavy weight, including grand kids. Do regular exercises within limits of discomfort.

Sciatica: Pain in the distribution as you suggested describes the pattern of the nerve that travels in the leg called the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is not the cause of the pain source, it is the result of an irritated nerve typically in the lumbar spine (low back) which are caused by herniated disks, spinal stenosis or degenerative disc disease requiring further evaluation by a spine specialist. ...Read more

Burning pain above heel. Swelling beneath outer ankle. Pain increases when walkin especially on incomes or stairs. Heaviness and leg weakness to hip?

Problems linked?: Heaviness of the leg and hip weakness may be due to a back problem (L 3-4). This would not cause pain in the ankle (local process if there truly is some swelling) I would have the muscle CPK checked (on statin drug) the weakness in the legs is typically symmetrical if due to statin drugs but can be noticed on one side initially. If these problems persist you will need to be examined. ...Read more

I wake up from knee and ankle pain after about 1/2 hour of sleep. What maybe causing or release of pain?

Varies: There are a number of potential causes. If it is causing you enough trouble, I would encourage you to be seen.

Many of which have a pretty simple cure. ...Read more
