So recently I had a cramp in my calf which move up behind my knee hurts so bad to walk or lay down just hurts so bad what could it be?

DVT Phlebitis WOW: Severe calf pain can be due to a muscle strain. However, complains of severe calf pain enhanced by laying down or walking, suggests that the problem is more serious. You need to have your leg evaluated immediately to make sure your pain is not due to a blood clot in the leg. I would not wait too long to have this seen as the lack of treatment could have catastrophic consequences. ...Read more

My 2nd? My left knee hurts while having sex especially when I lay down on my back. I have a lump on my right testicle n trying to conceive for 3 mont

My 2nd? My left knee hurts while having sex especially when I lay down on my back. I have a lump on my right testicle n trying to conceive for 3 mont

See professionals...: From what you described, the pain you have is not related with nerve irritation from muscle / bone structure /activities. Such pain during sex may affect erection to last, in turn, impair the chance to impregnate partner. As to a lump of right testis, it probably has nothing to do with pregnancy, but it's a good idea to see an expert to check if the lump is indeed inside or outside testis.

Best. ...Read more

Hip pain when lifting it or moving it while laying down. Hurts to lift with leg extended and when bent at knee. Cause? 17 yrs old f 208 lbs htn & pcos

Hard to say: There are several possibilities and an exam could probably determine the cause. Probably the three most common causes in a 17 year old would be a soft tissue condition around the hip such as a tendinitis, or an inflammatory condition of the hip itself such as a synovitis, or that it is a non musculoskeletal condition involving the abdomen or pelvis. Consider being seen. ...Read more

What are the causes of hip/knee pain when laying down?

What are the causes of hip/knee pain when laying down?

Can be several: The hip and knee receive their nerve supply from the same nerve, the obturator so that a knee problem can present as knee &/or hip pain & vice versa. Usually, pain in the joints after lying down is usually a sign of arthritis as motion keeps the joint fluid bathing the joint surfaces which is how the cartilage gets its nutrition. ...Read more

My knee cracks everytime I bend down and as a dancer it hurts often but I have had it my whole life what is the cause?

My knee cracks everytime I bend down and as a dancer it hurts often but I have had it my whole life what is the cause?

Patella / kneecap: The most common reason for knee "cracking" is softening of the cartilage of the patella (kneecap). This condition is called "chondromalacia patellae". It occurs more often is women and is thought to be related to anatomical and muscular variations in some individuals. Oftentimes specific exercises or knee braces can improve the condition. Surgery is rarely indicated. ...Read more

My knee feels like it locks up have to force my knee to pop when I bend it even if I'm laying down I have to crack it or it hurts more

My knee feels like it locks up have to force my knee to pop when I bend it even if I'm laying down I have to crack it or it hurts more

Cartilage problem?: Locking-up is a particularly worrisome symptom in the knee. I would be concerned about a torn cartilage. In the meantime, do not "force" anything, as you can cause more damage. If you lock-up again, I would recommend gently flexing and extending the knee to release any trapped tissues. Plan to see a doctor about this if the symptoms don't respond quickly to ice and anti-inflammatories. ...Read more

My knee hurts when im laying down but that's it only when im laying down straight not bending them im fine when im standing up, etc im 17y/o?

May be mechanical: You will need clarification. Usually with arthritis the knee can hurt when you are walking but there are certain types that are better when you walk. Also depending on position the knee your cartilage can slip in and out and that can explain this. Your physician can evaluate you and decide if you need to see a rheumatologist or an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more

Get it checked: Severe knee pain with motion in a 39 yo is often a sign of a structural problem within the knee. Often a torn and displaced meniscus fragment will cause pain with simple range of motion. An orthopedist will likely order XRs and an MRI to definitively diagnose the problem. Seek treatment soon as a displaced (bucketed) meniscus should be treated urgently. ...Read more

Knee grinds when laying on my back when lifting it up to stretch. It hurts going down stairs. Locks up going up stairs once in awhile. What is happening?

Suggest you seek evaluation by an orthopedic surgeon for diagnosis and possible treatment. It may just be wear and tear but with locking you may have a cartilage tear.

NEED FOR CUSHION!: Most shoes aren't always what is bad, usually it's the crummy insoles they come with! There are many possible reasons that you may have painful feet, but try cushioning arch supports like spenco polysorb cross-trainers (http://www. Spenco. Com/products/footcare/poly-sorb). If these don't help, see a podiatrist.... Also try an otc anti-inflammatory, like aleve (naproxen). ...Read more
