I get a sharp pain on the inside of my knee only when kicking a soccer ball, I have no pain when putting weight on it or bending it, advice please?
Likely plica: Tissues in the knee right next to your knee cap can become swollen and inflamed. This will cause a pinching sharp pain on the inside of the knee cap with certain movements. This is very common with soccer. Try ice, Ibuprofen and some rest. It usually will pass. If symptoms change, such as it becomes painful to walk or bend, and swelling develops, then seek further evaluation. ...Read more

You : You are most likely having a severe muscle spasm. You can try ice, advil, (ibuprofen) and very gentle stretching. A physical therapist may be helpful.

If you have any history of clots, or have swelling, severe pain, increased pain when the leg is down, chest pain, or shortness of breath, then you must go to the er to evaluate it. ...Read more

My feet, knee hurts every once in a while, but mostly my feet. They look very bony and on the side if my foot there is a bump. It is not a bunion. Help?
You state you have : A bump but not a bunion...Bumps usually are bunions on the side of the foot, or a prominent 5th metatarsal base. Anything else, would really need to be checked out. Since, both your feet and knees hurt, i'd look to check if you have flatfeet, or if you pronate a lot and consider arch supports or orthotics. ...Read more
Visit an Orthopedist: Pain is an obvious sign something is wrong. Why wait for it to get worse? The more you wait the more damage you can be doing. I would recommend icing the knee until you can get to a doctor. You can also try one of the various knee braces available at a sporting goods store. I don't believe the varicose veins on your right foot are related to your right knee pain. ...Read more
L5-S1 microdiscectomy Fri for left leg sciatic pain. Calf/foot pain relief w/some thigh/behind knee pain. Pain less AM but sharp pain down left leg into foot w/pain level of 9.5 & hurts sitting/lying.
Microdiskectomy: Give it some time; sometimes simply moving the roots around can upset the lumbar plexus and give you intermittent (even quite severe) pain, although it resolves within a week or two. Getting to the disk requires mobilization of the roots and inflammatory changes from that- or the disk herniation- itself can give this pain. As long as bowel and bladder OK, hopefully this will resolve also. Best! ...Read more

I was doing yoga & suddenly got foot & knee pain. Its been 2 weeks & still the pain is same. When i did standing stretching exercise, it got better.?
Hard to say: There are multiple potential causes and usually a detailed exam can determine the cause. It would seem a little unusual to have injured your knee and foot at the same time (although it is possible), so one cause might be a sciatica. In sciatica , a nerve can be irritated in the back and cause pain running from the knee to the foot. Consider being seen. ...Read more
