What causes pain down the outside of my leg when kneeling?

Iliotibial band

Knee
It is hard to be sure without an exam, but that sounds like a condition called iliotibial band syndrome. It's a large tendon that runs from the hip, down the outside of the thigh, and attaches just across the knee. It gets inflammed sometimes and causes these types of symptoms

After work at 7 pm, I had back pain that spread all over, even dwn legs. Was so painful it hurt to lie dwn. What would cause pain that quickly?

Many Causes

Upper_back_pain
Back pain can come on suddenly and be very severe. It may start for no reason at all. Some physicians believe it is due to a small tear in the disc although this is not proven. The best thing to do is stay down, use heat and take pain relievers if necessary. If the pain does not resolve in 2-3 days, see your doctor or a chiropractor

Can methadone cause blood clots and or swelling and pain in leg. Had blood clot a few months ago.. Went away. Years ago told my left side had circulation problems. More lower left leg swollen painful can't move it. must pain right under knee

A

A swollen leg with a history of blood clots is a worrisome combination. You could very well have another clot, and blood clots in the legs can lead to bad complications. You need to be examined for this and have an ultrasound study. Do you have a history of injecting IV drugs into the veins in your legs? That's a great way to damage the veins and put you at risk for leg swelling and/or blood clots.
