Also, it is possible you are suffering from posterior tibial tendonitis. Certainly, if you have pain -i would recommend a visit to the foot doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No.: Vascular calcification is often seen on xray as you get older. You are a bit young to have this noted at your knee level and it may indicate that you have a predisposition to vascular disease.
