I have pain my legs n knees. I had diabetes but had a transplant. I have difficulty getting into the car n bending. What does this suggest?

Need an exam

Transplant
Generally pain in legs and knees associated with bending and getting into a car would suggest the possibility of nerve compression in the back. In a young person with diabetes and a transplant it make sense to start with a good physical exam.

Pain on right side right leg near mid tibia bone when bending with straight leg since a year. No problem if bent knees. What could it be? Must visit?

Please ask your doct

Bones
Several questions--have you fallen or sustained ay trauma? Any discoloration over area involved. Is area painful to touch? Best to be seen and probably have an x-ray taken if this has been going on for more than a couple days. Best wishes.

Family doctor

I look at my role as a family doctor to function as gate keeper. You would be well suited to have your trusted family doctor evaluate you then refer you if needed. Best option!

thrown off 2nd story roof age 2 ended with severe sprain both legs. pain in legs lasted till now age 27. why do my knees/hips hurt even when bending?

Thorough work up

I agree that X-rays are a good place to start. A good evaluation to determine if the discomfort is coming from the bones, muscles, or nerves is helpful and can help direct treatment. One cleared, a tailored exercise program developed by a physical therapist will help you find ways to achieve your goals with minimal discomfort.

Your symptoms could be related to restless limb syndrome, but at your age I would recommend you consult your doctor regarding peripheral vascular disease especially if you are or have been a smoker, are being treated for coronary artery disease or are diabetic.

This problem can only be solved by seeing your doctor and being evaluated face-to-face. After a thorough examination, your doctor should be able to tell you what's wrong and what to do about it.

Numb legs

it may not be m.s. as it is bilateral. an mri of the lumbar spine may show a disc problem. if you are concerned about m.s., an mri of the brain would rule that out. it sounds like an L3L4 disc problem, though testing would be a good idea, including an emg
