I  am having a lot of bad leg pain around the knee, upper thigh, and above my ankle on my driving leg, especially when I am driving. Lasting weeks.

Lower extremity pain: First of all, we need to know if there is a history of trauma. If there is trauma, you need x-rays and possibly an MRI and blood tests.

Are you active in sports? Do you have circulation issues? We need a better history. ...Read more

Does the pain make it to the big toe? the front of the thigh pain can also be from a superficial nerve root that is being effected.

Radiculopathy: It's a bit early for this, but pregnancy can cause loosening of your joints by the hormone relaxin and this can cause a a compression of the nerve root.

I am experiencing  knee pain ever since I landed on my right knee when getting up from a chair on May 16th.

So it is coming up: on a month now. Often minor traumatic injuries to the knee will resolve with conservative treatment--icing, elevation, rest, avoidance of aggravating activities--within a week or two.

A torn cartilage or other internal derangement may have occurred; MRI may be needed. Make appt ...Read more
