Two neg dopplers pain behind knee mainly when sitting no swelling petrified they missed something chances of them missing clot behind knee?
Likely not clot: I am not an orthopedic surgeon but I would think that your pain is likely secondary to some strain of your knee ligaments/other structures of the knee. Blood clots would be in the deep veins of the lower leg, not so much behind the knee/calf circumference increased. I would think most folks would have an aching sensation, not just sitting. Antegrade venogram would be more definitive. See ur M.D ...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

Where I up I am constantly getting up and down to get stuff from the printer. Now my knees hurt, and I get a back knee pain near the behind area??
Probably overuse: Since this involves both knees, it is probably from overuse, especially since only the back of the knee. Take more frequent breaks to get up and walk around. Perform simple range of motion activities by moving the knee through full range of motion and stretch at the limits of motion when fully straight and fully bent. Ice may help if pain persists. Apply ice to painful area 15-20 min/hour. ...Read more

What would cause progressively worse knee pain that stems from behind the knee? It is painful to bend and to walk?
Several causes of pain behind the knee. I assume no recent trauma--you may have a baker's cyst--basically a collection of joint fluid extruded outside of the joint and formed sack there behind the knee...As it enlarges, it can cause pain and reduces ability to bend the knee.
A bit clot in the back can do so as well, but you don't have other symptoms to suggest that.
Consult your doc.
Good luck. ...Read more

I have knee pain when going down stairs, sitting indian style, or straightening my leg when it has been bent for awhile. What could this be?
OA vs PFPS: Two possibilities are most likely. The first is osteoarthritis, or wear and tear ("rust in the joint"). This is usually in middle-age people but can occur earlier with excessive use. Another option is patellofemoral pain syndrome, or inflammation where the kneecap tracks on the femur (upper leg bone). In most people, these can both be helped with antinflammatory meds and quad strengthening. ...Read more
