Tightness In Upper Leg
Soft knot lower back for years no problems. Now I bend over for few minutes, legs begin to feel numb. When mowing grass, tightness in upper right leg?
I fell on my knee the other day and there is tightness in my upper front leg when i bend my leg. Is that normal?
Get it checked out : Tis may becouse you have swelling inside the knee joint which can be a sign of an internal injury. An effusion (joint swelling) will cause tightness when you try to bend it and is a sign of something going on that may need some attention. Ice and rest if for a few days, if it does not improve, see a specialist. ...Read more

Might a popliteal aneurysm cause the upper leg to feel like it is pushing into the lower leg with general tightness in the knee and on the sides?
Possibly: Popliteal aneurysms are a dangerous condition, as most do not cause symptoms until something catastrophic occurs; typically clots form in the aneurysm & embolize to the lower leg. This leads to emergent surgery & many times even with surgery the leg will be lost to amputation. The best way to diagnose is with ultrasound. Larger ones can be appreciated on leg exam. Sometimes tightness occurs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Calf locked up, now it's painful, tight, swells at ankle & foot, pain goes up to thigh all back leg pain & in bottom of foot, can't bend ankle, help?
Painfull: Calf spasms are painful. Usually they relax through weight bearing, gentle stretch, and heat before the ankle will "move". Naproxen is not the cure. Overuse (such as standing or walking in improper shoes) is the most common cause. If the pain in the back does not respond to heat, stretch and rest over the day after the calf problem relaxes, seek examination with a musculoskeletal physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
