Undiagnosed with jra- but having a knee flare. Swelling, sharp pain, x-rays unremarkable...Had symptoms 5 yrs ago. I'm 24. Told to "deal with it"...?
I am a dancer. Symptoms- swelling, shadows on inside, aching when used, a lump on the outside in line with the centre of the knee. ?

Could early arthritis cause pain in the middle of my left knee when i kneel it.I have no other symptoms such as swelling, hot sensation or stiffness?

Could fibromyalgia cause same symptoms as osteoarthritis in my knees.I have no swelling but some pain.?
Observe closely: Fibromyalgia classically affects soft tissue pain messengers (ligaments, muscles, skin, even blood vessels). Osteoarthritis affects bone. Because the knee is a complex structure comprised of both bone & soft tissue, it may be hard to distinguish. But do you have fibromyalgia--pain on both sides of the body and above & below the waist? ...Read more
I've been having mild pain and some numbness on my left leg for about a week now. Mostly around the knee and calf area. No swelling or other symptoms?
Sciatica: Pain in the distribution as you suggested describes the pattern of the nerve that travels in the leg called the sciatic nerve.
