See a doctor: It sounds like you may have dislocated your knee cap (patella). This is fairly common in young females in particular. You need to see an orthopedic surgeon or sports med doctor for evaluation and treatment.

I have been having pain going down my leg, makes my whole leg hurt down n to my foot. Have back prob what nerve root could b doing that what will help?

Wait a minute...: Back problems are not the only things that could cause your whole leg to hurt. Without a thorough examination it would be unwise not to include the possibility of other serious conditions such as arterial vascular disease or deep vein thrombosis. You might want to consult with your family doctor to start. It would be best not to delay in seeking care for too long.

I have a small lump on the inside of my right shin hurts really bad. My whole leg hurts at times and I have swelling and discomfort. What can it be?

Lump: Without an exam it would be guessing at things like boils, abscesses, lipomas, cysts, folliculitis, etc. But as stated, these are guesses. Get eval and properly diagnosed so any necessary treatment would occur. Best wishes.

My whole left leg hurts. Sometimes it is unbearable, but most of the times it is just a little bit pain. Is this a known disorder?

My whole left leg hurts. Sometimes it is unbearable, but most of the times it is just a little bit pain. Is this a known disorder?

Sounds like: It is nerve pain originating from your low back. Any injuries? If there is any weakness of the muscles, you need to see a doctor because you might need nerve decompression. Is there any swelling? If so, it could be thrombophletis, a potentially dangerous condition. Can't tell for sure, but if it is just pain with no other symptoms, you probably will get better on rest alone.

I've had foot discomfort/ pain as a child, now I have episodes where my whole leg will hurt. I don't know what know what the cause is. Triggers vary.

? nerve pain: Pain in the entire leg, in the absence of injury or inflammation would appear to be due to some nerve impingement-possibly in the lower spine. If you wanted to pursue this further, I believe that a neurologist would be the best one to evaluate you.

I banged my leg and now it hurts. Should I use ice?

Helpful: An ice pack can diminish the swelling and lower the amount of bleeding in a bruised body part. You can use it for a day or two until the capillaries close off and healing starts.

Had stint put in leg thursday is leg suppose to hurt?

Shouldn't hurt: Sometimes patients may have an localized ache from stretching of the blood vessel but this should go away in a couple days. Pain down the leg is not normal. Is the leg white or cold? Fever? If so see a doctor asap as the stent may have clotted or become infected. You should also probably be taking an Aspirin a day.

My leg hurts still from a hit and swells up, what is this?

Vascular damage: It is hard to tell but from your description there may be damage to blood vessels such as veins, that might initiate intermittent swelling. Your physician should be able to help identify tests that might clarify the swelling. These would be called vascular tests.
