Get diagnosed first: There are a number of things that can cause swelling in the ankles and feet. This is a very nonspecific symptom. I recommend that someone swelling in these areas should be seen by orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon for a definitive diagnosis so that appropriate treatment can be started.

I have been told I have anterior knee pain, but the pain is in my hips and ankles too and I'm flatfooted. Is there anything else this pain could be?

I have been told I have anterior knee pain, but the pain is in my hips and ankles too and I'm flatfooted. Is there anything else this pain could be?

Could be alignment: Alignment in the legs begins from the ground up - runners who are flat footed are at higher risk for plantar fasciitis, anterior knee pain (such as patellofemoral pain & patellar tendinitis), and even hip pain due to the way their feet align at rest and while in motion. Try some over the counter arch supports - such as super feet or smart sole brands. Avoid gel at the arch. ...Read more

Knee pain and swelling ankle is swollen is it normal its been like that for 2 days fell on it 21 weeks ago?

Ankle swelling: The key thing to remember is whenever you sprain your ankle or knee is to rice: rest, ice. Compression and elevate your foot. This is important to do especially in the first 3 days of the injury. Your ankle and knee will swell because of the injury. Get an ace wrap to wrap around your ankle. Keep it elevated whenever you are sitting down. No heavy exercise while it heals. Go see foot dr for ankle. ...Read more

I have ankle pains and knee pain on my right leg. I have to use a brace for both my knee and ankle but how does that help?

I have ankle pains and knee pain on my right leg. I have to use a brace for both my knee and ankle but how does that help?

Stability: They provide stability and less stress on the ligaments and joint when you move/walk. The idea is to decrease strain on those joints with the brace and hopefully the body can then heal any tearing or damage that was present. If pain continues, this will also tell the doctor there is underlying pathology and more tests or advance treatment is necessary. Hope this answers your question. ...Read more

I am experiencing knee pain and pain going down the leg to my ankle and shin. The following also describes me: Leg pain. What should I do?

Arthritis: There are a number of possibilities but the most likely is some form of arthritis of the knee. Pain down the leg occurs in this condition due to the alteration of leg motion as you guard to protect the arthritis. Try an NSAID such as 400-800 mg of ibuprofen (along with a stomach acidity counteractant like omeprazole), for a week or two. If that fails, see your family doctor. ...Read more

I had an ankle injury, which has gotten worse and it hurts to walk, and now my knee on the same leg is hurting. Could the knee pain be b/c the ankle?

I had an ankle injury, which has gotten worse and it hurts to walk, and now my knee on the same leg is hurting. Could the knee pain be b/c the ankle?

Yes.: The mechanics of walking are off with an injured ankle. It would be easy to also injure the knee in that way. Time to see a physician, xray if indicated, maybe a walking cast, at least compression bandage, crutches to take some of the weight off the leg if no walking cast perhaps, ice, rest, elevation. Exercise via swimming for now. ...Read more
