The shot... maybe: If, in the process of injecting your hip, the tip of the needle touched the sciatic nerve, that would explain referred pain in your heel and foot. If this is the case, it should resolve over time. I would certainly report this new finding to the doctor who gave you the shot. Hope this helps. Feel better! ...Read more

Quad weakness: The most common source of pain and "instability" after acl reconstruction is from weakness in the quad muscles (acl failure is possible but actually less common). If the muscles have not returned to normal function, you will continue to limp and walk with a straight knee (quad avoidance). This further weakens the quad and harms the hamstrings and calf, causing pain, burning, and giving way. ...Read more
