Pain in calfs with severe Right knee pain that travels through the whole leg and to the buttocks and severe pain in feet when walking ?

Rug burn-like pain on the outside of my right knee. Hurts if i rub it against something, but its not external. Cortisone recently and history of disc issue?

Interesting: The character of the pain sounds neurologic and should be examined by the doctors treating your serious neck condition. Spinal stenosis can affect both neck and back in those who have the condition early in life. Trauma to the knee can give local symptoms because it is a bony joint with a superficial nerve that is vulnerable to bumps. It is safe to "watch it" if you stay active. ...Read more

Red Pimple on back of knee with a small hole in middle of it. Can this be a bite or boil.how can I tell?
