The back of my knee region on both knees is flaring up this past week. Very painful when I bend them and try to get back up. this has never happened before. only rest helps and pain killers. they hurt even when i am sitting with my knees bent. like i

Please

Please have this evaluated. Sometimes arthritic changes can cause symptoms such as this. There is also a condition called "Baker's Cyst" that can cause swelling and pain behind the knees. The most important thing to be sure you don't have is a blood clot, which would cause pain, swelling, or cramping in the calf. If you have any of those symptoms you would have to have an ultrasound to evaluate your leg immediately. An ultrasound would also show a Baker's Cyst.

I have had knee pain only at night when I try to lay on my side and lay the inner part of my knee on the mattress. The only way I can sleep is turning on my opposite side and keeping the painful leg off the mattress.?

Hamstring tendinitis

Mcl
While there may be many causes of this pain, two very common sources is hamstring tendinitis that occurs from limping. The limping is often caused by weakness of the quad muscles, but can also be caused by knee problems such as arthritis. If you have had a fall recently, the cause can also be an MCL tear. To isolate the problem, a trip to your friendly neighborhood orthopedist may be helpful.

Clearly

You are going thru menopause. Possibly some arthritis of knees. Sounds like you need to see the gynecologist and orthopedist. Bring a good book for the waiting rooms.

Need ortho exam. Xrays and probably an MRI of the knees will be needed. Losing weight would ofcourse lessen the stress

Dr. Nathan Lilya answered:

Achy calf and achy knees, mainly at night. Work out 3-4 times a week, running on treadmill and squats with no supplements. Not painful, just achy?

Shoes

Leg
First thing is to take a really good look at your shoes. They should be fitted to your feet with good arch support. Have someone watch you run. Does one foot strike differently than the other? Does one toe point at a different angle than the other? Have someone measure your leg length. Is one leg longer than the other? Custom orthotics can help with many of these types of problems.
