Don't worry: I would not worry so much as just that you might want to be seen for a specific diagnosis and treatment options. As you mentioned, it can be a variation of a sciatica, which is leg pain caused by an irritation if a nerve in the back; or it can be from something in the leg itself.

Leg pain: The soreness may be due to the injury itself, but there could be a small possibility of blood clot, particularly if you have a previous history of blood clot, are a smoker, are on hormone replacement, or have other medical issues. Therefore, I would get ahold of your doctor or go to an ER for evaluation. ...Read more

Right inner thigh to knee is sore feeling and makes me limp when I walk. Theres also a red wide line from inner thigh to knee that hurts when touched?

Have that evaluated: This "line" in particular may be what's referred to as lymphangitis, inflammation of the lymph drainage tract that can be related to an infection. Alternatively, it could represent inflammation of a blood vessel related to a blood clot. Again, I would encourage you to be seen sooner rather than later as this could be a sign of something more serious. ...Read more

Knee pain after TKA: Close follow up by your joint surgeon is needed as you should be having few complaints by 2 months at your age. It is possible that you may have an underlying spine problem in the upper lumbar spine that could affect the muscles that control the hip and knee. A lumbar MRI may be indicated. I was able to participate in spin cycle classes 6 weeks after my knee replacement last year. ...Read more

My 10 year old son has both red & skin colored bumps  on his knees, toes and buttocks.  He also has a severe sore throat.  What should we do?
