Hip Knee And Ankle Pain

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.

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
