Would a torn ACL cause excessive water in knee and a very sensitive calf? And swelling in ankles and foot, ?Or could a sciatic nerve cause all of this?
ACL: Yes. The water is inflammation in the knee joint - from the torn acl. Thing like a bakers cyst behind the knee or a torn knee joint capsule could cause the fluid to leak out and affect the calf and cause swelling in the affected leg. Due to the instability in the knee, you would be compensating and using muscles differently so could aggravate the affected leg and put pressure on the sciatic nerve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Wait ; see: The duration of your symptoms has not been long enough (assuming no trauma) to indicate anything dire. It could be from sitting in a certain position or type of chair, or a sensitivity of your skin to something it contacted. If it persists past 24, see your pcp. Being that it is on both sides presumably rules out shingles. ...Read more
