Fell on knees 6weeks ago. Right knee had fluid but itwas gone. Hit rt knee again after1month. Little fluid. Now hve tingling/numbness on foot/leg. Problem?

See an orthopedist: It is hard to know without examining you, and without knowing where you are numb, what is causing your problem. It sounds like you first had an internal injury to your knee, and did the right thing by giving it a chance to heal. You can injure the peroneal nerve near the knee. This could result in weakness of your foot, and is something to take seriously - see an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more

Pain: lower back, thigh, one leg. Behind knee. Inner thigh. Tingling & numbness in foot. Lost control on my bladder once 2day. No sleep bc of pain.??

Sounds serious...: When a person loses control of the bladder, but was fine before... that's a problem. When combined with neurological symptoms in the legs or lower back, it becomes an emergency. In such a situation, one should get an immediate evaluation to see if there is something pressing on the spinal cord, which could lead to permanent paralysis. The Emergency Room doctor can ask the Neurologist to help. ...Read more

Had eviked potentials done for numbness and tingling rt foot an. Result. 2.5to 3 is that abnorm. Al?

See below: Guess I am confused, as to why you would have your symptoms tested by evoked potential study which is basically worthless if you have a peripheral nerve problem. (although may help diagnose a spinal cord problem). The more appropriate test could be an EMG nerve conduction study. I think you need to sit down with your doctor and ask some direct questions. Sorry, but that's my thinking, so far. ...Read more

My feet often turn purple/blue when im sitting or standing. It doesn't bother me, no numbness, pain, tingling. What could cause this? . I'm 23.

Circulation problem?: Purple or blue coloring to hands or feet usually means decreased or slowed circulation to the area. This can happen if the blood vessels get compressed or if the vessels tighten themselves and lessen the blood flow. Sometimes, blood flow will change due to nerve signals or chemical signals telling the vessels to constrict. A primary doctor and a rheumatologist can evaluate and look for the cause. ...Read more
