Can xray tec tell if knee pain is from muscles near it or if there is a sprain? Fell on stairs, pain is on L side of kneecap- muscle inside of leg.
Spuriously, yes: Varicosities in and of themselves do not cause knee pain (s), rather the extremity in question typically aches, feels "full, " and occasionally sharp pains may be sensed along the vein or its tributaries. The lesser saphenous vein starts near the lateral, posterior ankle and extends up to the popliteal fossa (the space behind the knee). Plan: ultrasound to assess for reflux, a baker's cyst or dvt. ...Read more

Many possibilities: The knee is an important weight bearing joint with a complex inner and outer structure. Your pain could be as a result of many different things. A thorough history and physical exam and possibly some laboratory and radiology exams are needed to determine the exact cause. Causes of pain may include: trauma (fracture, tendon or ligamentous tear, arthritis), infection, and metabolic conditions. ...Read more

Joint or bursitis: Your physician will need to evaluate you to see if you have internal knee problems in the inside medial knee such as cartilage or joint pain or if it comes from bursitis on the outside of your medial knee - often anserine bursitis. Each of these conditions could mimic the pain you describe. ...Read more

I exercised/ran for years w/no knee pain/not overweight. Pain direct result of previous insanity/plyo. I want to run/build muscle but knees grind&hurt?
Typical with plyo: Plyometrics/insanity puts a lot of stress on your knee joints that you don't get with other exercises. I recommend running on dirt/sand-it takes more energy and is gentler on your knees. It is also common for women to have arthritis under their kneecaps due to wider hips. You may benefit from getting a gait analysis at a good shoe store since pronation (either over or under) can cause knee pain. ...Read more

Bakers cyst: There are a number of possibilities, but probably the most common is a bakers cyst; which is a herniation of the posterior aspect of the capsule between two tendons in the back of the knee. It can cause the back of the knee to be swollen, tender, and quite painful. Because having a blood clot is another possibility and can be life threatening, you should be checked. ...Read more
Constant knee pain seems lateral. Collateral ligament is tight & painful and it is also causing the joint to grind. What could be causing this?
Knee Nightmare: Pain about the knee can be due to many reasons. Medial pain can occur due to ligament, meniscal or bursal injury. Similarly, lateral pain can occur for these reasons but less so for meniscal injury as it is a distinct structure apart from the collateral ligament. A common, but often overlooked, condition is iliotibial band syndrome that can cause pain anywhere from the hip to the lateral knee. ...Read more

I have a bulging disc and degenerative disc disease in my lower back. I pulled a muscle in my lower back can that cause me to have knee pain with move?
Yes: Yes, but @ age 25 deg disc disease is rather uncommon unless other factors involved. Back pain w/ nerve 'pinching' can cause knee pain BUT a good examination / history can normally distinguish between back and related nerve pain and a primary knee problem (tendinitis, kneecap, etc.). My reccommation would be to see a board certified ORS if your symptoms persist. Best of Luck!! ...Read more

While sleeping I suffer from chest tightness mainly on the right chest and right elbow pain. I experience right knee pain too. What could be the cause?
Hard to say: Pains at night can be a normal result of activities during the day, and even arthritis which is commonly worse at night.
