IT Band: Iliotibial Band Syndrome (IT Band) can cause pain on the lateral or outside part of the knee. Most common in runners. Common syndrome aggravated by crossing the affected leg.

Back pain: Lunges and squats really put a lot of stress on the low back. You risk converting a bulging disc into a herniated disc. Isometric exercises are better to build the core muscles. A weight lifting belt can protect the low back if you have to do the lunges and squats. Consult with a personal trainer to avoid further injury to the low back. ...Read more

Sciatica maybe: Pain radiating down the leg is concerning for 'sciatica' which is usually due to a slipped disc in your spine impinging on a nerve root. How long have you had it? Ordinarily patients can initially try an anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen or naproxen. Given your urinary symptoms though- I would see a doctor for an examination ASAP, so they can formulate a treatment plan. ...Read more
Left leg flex-or tendon unresponsive, when seated or standing or walking unable to point toes/foot upwards using muscles/tendons partial loss of sensation in left leg from knee down, causing embarrassing limp, 25 year old male
This : This sounds like a serious issue that should be evaluated in-person by a qualified physician! if your weakness was sudden, there are numerous possible causes, most importantly associated with your nervous system. It does not sound like you had a trauma, so muscle-or-tendon ruptures are unlikely. The most common reason for this problem is an acute disc herniation in the lumbar spine, that can occur without back pain or even any kind of bending/lifting injury. This causes nerve compression that gives patients typically radiating leg pain, numbness and weakness. The muscles that are associated with each lumbar spine level need to be tested individually during a good physical examination, and the distribution of your numbness should be traced. That can often lead to a pretty good diagnosis, even before imaging studies are done. You will probably need a set of standing lumbar x-rays and then possibly an MRI of your back to determine the real cause of the problem. There could be an inflammatory problem with onevof your nerves in the buttock or leg, although that is not as common as nerve root compression in the lower spine. Very rarely can individual nerve roots be affected with a disease inside of the cauda equina, the lower part of your nervous system inside of the lumbar spine, so that is unlikely. Even more rare would be a spinal cord problem higher up in the spine, or some kind of stroke inside of your brain, so that would not be the first thing your doctor will be looking for. Make sure you tell your physician as clear as you can when the problem started, where you feel weak, and where the numbness is (front, side, back of the lower leg?). Associated fever, chills, recent weight loss and problems with urination are important to convey to your doctor also. Do not wait too long to go see someone. Hopefully you can be treated with a course of anti-inflammatory medicines (similar to ibuprofen) and maybe physical therapy to see if things improve. Even with weakness, there is no good evidence for early surgery, as most patients -even if they were weak for a long time from nerve-root compression- eventually regain their strength just fine. Depending on the evaluation and possible MRI scan, do not let yourself get scared into surgery right away; try non-operative treatments first. If things do not improve, and there is indeed a significant amount of nerve compression in the lumbar spine, surgery might be the answer, and it is often very successful for this. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
With a tailbone injury can you do strength training w weights ie squats,leg press, hip abducter and cardio - elliptical?
Varies: It varies somewhat based on the severity of the injury. If it is a fracture, you would be well suited to avoid exercises that put extra strain on that area such as seated military press, etc for 6-8 weeks. If it was more of a soft tissue injury, than basically you would just try to keep your activities to such a level that your pain is not aggravated, but could increase them as tolerated. ...Read more
Pain on lower L pubic bone after run, radiate to lower L back. Hurts while walk, lift L leg, and lifting R leg toward L leg. Cause bone or muscle?
Many possibilities: Attached to the "sit" bones are the hamstrings which can develop tendinitis. The hip rotators are deep to that area and can have tendinitis too. An alternative source would be lower back pain which can radiate down. For people who have muscle pain from running, reducing run distance, mixing in cross training and aggressive stretching can help. If not better, a stress fracture can be considered ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Besides exertional compartment syndrome, what other things would cause gastrocnemius contracture whereby need to flex at knee to dorsiflex foot?
Achilles tightness: As you've mentioned 'exertional compartment syndrome', I'm going to guess that you: 1. have had this diagnosed and 2. have transitory symptoms. Compartment syndrome usually presents with pallor, pain, paraesthesias, 'pins and needles' sensation and pulselessness. If your calf simply feels tight, it doesn't rule out CS, but it is less likely. Chronic CS should be worked up before a muscle tear. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
You need to see doc: Instead of trying to be diagnosed and trtd over the net, you need to be checked by a doc. Inability to straighten leg out, if acute, could imply a fracture. Long-term inability to straighten a leg out could indicate a contracture due to a neurological disorder. You need to go see a doc for proper diagnosis and treatment, as causes are broad. Net is not the place for this. Wrong trmnt can harm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
