I have pain behind knees and thighs every night; lower back pain during day. What could it be?

Lumbar Radiculitis

Back_pain
It sounds like you have Lumbar Radiculitis which is pain in the back that radiates to the legs. This is also referred to as Sciatica. I recommend making an appointment with a Pain Doctor to find out for sure. Check out PainDoctor.com for a doc near you.

Pain behind right knee and into thigh. Blood clot? would it be safe to wait till tomo to see a doctor if it were a clot.

Other Reason for It?

Atherectomy
Blood clots, or deep venous thromboses (DVT), can be associated with pain and swelling, especially when there is not another explanation for these symptoms (infection, bruising, bleeding, injury). If blood clots are common in your family, or if you have had a prior blood clot, check it out asap. The risk of untreated DVT is clot extension or embolization (breaking off and traveling), to the lungs.

Dr. John J. Thaler answered:

My left outer thigh from knee up is painful to the touch, it' burns, is numb & tingling. Hurts to walk, sit & sleeping is the most painful!

See neurologist

Knee
Might be ITB - iliotibial band syndrome. The tingling and burning and numbness point to a nerve issue. See the specialist for thorough evaluation. Hopefully all will improve with stretching, antiinflammatories and therapy. Good luck.

Dr. Derek Farley answered:

What cause painful pinkish inner/dark red edges patch with a pea size lump underneath it? Located on the lower inner right thigh close to knee.

Shingles?

Pain
Without being able to look at it, I would hesitate to attempt a diagnosis. That being said, if it is painful, and has a "blister" look about it, it could be shingles, which can be treated. Get it looked at soon as getting on the antivirals for it sooner would give a better outcome. If, of course, it is shingles.
