Numbness and Pain: I am assuming that you have no knee injury. Pain and numbness like this is typically a nerve irritation coming from your knee, hip or low back. The radiating pain is called sciatica or radiculopathy. See a neurologist, chiropractor, physiatrist, or orthopod. Dr rich blake. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Knee Nightmare: Knee pain can be a symptom of a local problem or referred from another joint like the hip or ankle. Most intrinsic problems of the knee, if acute, are due to a soft tissue, supporting structure injury. Inflammatory diseases can also affect the knee (gout, rheumatoid and osteoarthritis). Ice added to any regimen is great, inexpensive and can be repeated indefinitely with little adverse effects. ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am having Knee pain from the top of the knee cap that radiates down to the ankle and up to the thigh on the right leg ice is not helping?
Try Advil/Aleve: This problem introduces the phenomenon of 'referred pain'. Usually with this the origin is fairly localizable. As the intensity of the pain increases so does the zone of perceived involvement. This presentation of severe knee pain is not uncommon. Note that this is unlikely to be sciatica. The quadriceps tendon traverses the top of the patella. One possibility is this could be strained. ...Read more

Get examined!: Your symptoms suggest patellofemoral( kneecap) pain.

See a board certified ORS. Best of Luck! ...Read more
