What can cause a sharp pain throughout the shin and up to the inside of the knee?

Knee unstable for 3months. Have pain front and back of knee and radiates down shin. Hurts to bend. Pain keeps me up at night. Trying ice and heat.?

Be seen: I would be seen. An exam and appropriate studies will usually determine the cause. Ligamentous injuries, such as an injury to the ACL can cause an unstable knee. If you are having a lot of trouble with pain running down your leg, it could also be coming from your back. In severe cases pinched nerves in the back can cause weakness in the muscles around the knee making it less stable. ...Read more

Why is my knee and front of my shin completely numb and has been for over an hour?

Why is my knee and front of my shin completely numb and has been for over an hour?

Without trauma.. .: You did not mention trauma so I presume this sensation occurred spontaneously. My first consideration would be a nerve related alteration in skin sensation issues - paresthesia. This area is supplied by lumbar 4/5 nerves coming from the lower back. Are you experiencing weakness? In addition to problems along the nerve's course that result in skin sensation changes, metabolic issues are common. ...Read more

Swelling on shin (just below the knees) with pain behind the shin. Is it something to do with my UC?

Swelling on shin (just below the knees) with pain behind the shin. Is it something to do with my UC?

Not likely.: It's unlikely that your symptoms are related to UC. Just below your knee is a bony bump called the "tibial tuberosity." This is where the tendon of one of the four parts of your quadriceps muscle attaches to the tibia or leg bone. Overworking the quads muscle can cause inflammation right there. Acetaminophen, ice and limiting walking, running & stairclimbing for a few days should help. ...Read more

You have new problem: Three herniated discs in the low back will not produce the numbness and pain just below the knees. You have a nerve disease that is affecting your long sensory nerves in your legs and feet. You need to see a neurologist. There are several causes, some of which can be reversed. Some of the causes are systemic, and will cause further problems with your health if not addressed. ...Read more

Pain back of knee &pain underneath kneecap on shin. Extreme limp after sitting down. Feels stiff but stretched out. No injury, pain for about 2months?

Chondromalacia patel: This sounds like chondromalacia patella which is softening of the cartilage underneath your kneecap. Best treatment for this is to do exercises that strengthen your quadriceps muscles. You can discuss with your physician about this or after your evaluation if x-rays and other imaging looks okay you could have physical therapy help you work on a new program ...Read more

I am 18 years old, been having knee pain for almost my entire life. The pain is in the backs of my knees and radiates down my shin. What could this be?

Hard to say: Knee pain your entire life would tend to mean that it is not an acute or progressive problem like a fracture, ligament injury, muscle tear or even tumor. Chronic things include arthritis, meniscus, or even vascular.

There are long lists of things that it could be but you really need to see a specialist like an orthopedic surgeon who can examine your knee and do images to get a better answer ...Read more

My pain started a few hours ago and is on my left inside shin between my ankle and knee. It's a sharp come and go lasting a second or so. Should I go?

Did you have a significant injury? Don't hesitate to be seen if it wa injured or the pain is severe. ...Read more

Get orthotics: You may be experiencing shin splints from repetitive stress on the tibia. If you are bow legged that will only increase that stress. Orthotics help level your ankle and tibia and reduce this tendency. You may also have posterior tibial tendonitis which is also similar and due to lack of support for your feet.

I have inner knee pain that hurts all the way down my shin bone what could this be?

Thigh muscle: If you knee is normal, the pain can come from injured muscle and fascia in your thigh/leg. The injured areas will be tender, and there will be at least one ropey cord of muscle with knots in it. This pain is called myofascial pain. Seek a massage therapist, physical therapist who can do dry needling, or an accupuncturiest.

From teen years?: Osgood-Schlatter knee is a common cause of knee pain in teens. It is inflammation of the area just below the knee where the tendon from the kneecap (patellar tendon) attaches to the shinbone (tibia). Because physical activity puts additional stress on bones, muscles, and tendons, kids who play sports have a higher chance of this. Doctor should examine this, as Osg.-Sch. Is not an adult condition. ...Read more

My knee caps turn inwards (my knees don't touch though). As a result, my shins are bowed outwards, and my legs are crooked. Anything I can do?

Yes: I would not hesitate to be seen where a thorough exam and standing X-rays of your entire lower extremities could give a lot more info. There are non surgical treatments such as physical therapy and bracing that could potentially help your symptoms, or you would have to decide if it is bad enough to consider surgery. ...Read more

Just ran my first 1/2 marathon. I have bruising on both shins just below knee. They don't hurt - should I be worried or is this pretty normal?

Worry a little: Bruising without pain could mean a vascular issue or impact stress from running. It is indicative of bleeding and inflammation in muscle or in skin just over the tibia bone (shin). There may be related stress fractures. Should see a sports medicine specialist or vascular specialist ...Read more
