Tingling Numbness Foot
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

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
Mild neuropathy?: Sometimes irritated nerves cause tingling, normally in the toes and feet, sometimes in the hands. Tingling or burning is a symptom of neuropathy, but it does not clinch the diagnosis. High blood sugar and deficient vitamin B12 are common causes of a symptom like this.
