Severe knee pain that travels to the calf muscle. Unable to bend knee or walk?

Trauma? Was there any trauma or injury to the knee or is this just a sudden onset with no preceding stress of the knee. Always a concern for deep venous thrombosis with severe calf pain. If persists seek further evaluation.

I have a vericose vein on my left leg on the calf muscle can this cause leg & knee pain?

Local pain only. Vericose veins can be locally tender, but they should not cause pain in near-by joints or deep in the muscle. Read more...
TO A DEGREE YES. I certainly see patients that develop leg pain from varicose veins. At times the veins can become inflammed and cause more pain. Usually, I do not see varicose veins cause knee or other joint pain. I cannot say it never will do it but if it does it is quite rare. Read more...
Yes. May have clot in vein which is called superficial thrombophlebitis. Try advil (ibuprofen) if you can take it as well as warm compresses a few times a day for 10 minutes each. Ultrasound will confirm diagnosis and evaluate for deep venous clot which is more serious and needs treatment with blood thinner. Read more...
Certainly possible. There is no question that leg and knee pain can be associated with varicose veins, this is especially true of leg pain. You should see a phlebologist (vein specialist) who can evaluate your veins with ultrasound. This will help to clear up whether your leg/knee pain might be related to your varicose veins or not.

Spuriously, yes. Varicosities in and of themselves do not cause knee pain(s), rather the extremity in question typically aches, feels "full, " and occasionally sharp pains may be sensed along the vein or its tributaries. The lesser saphenous vein starts near the lateral, posterior ankle and extends up to the popliteal fossa (the space behind the knee). Plan: ultrasound to assess for reflux, a baker's cyst or dvt.

Leg but not knee. Frequently patients with varicose veins have other associated problems, often times not related to the varicose veins. The varicose veins around the calf could cause calf discomfort but should not cause any knee pain. You should have a venous ultrasound to evaluate the venous system in that leg and, if it doesn't explain your pain, then you may need an orthopedic evaluation. Read more...

Calf muscle and knee pain from4 mnths did doppler, X-ray for lumbar spine and blood test for vit B12 and D3 but evrything is normal also they r weak?

May need more tests. X-rays of the spine are useless unless there is a history of trauma. Vitamin tests do no tell you about your pains. Need more info. Did this occur after an injury, or change in activity? Are there bruises? Do you have corresponding tingling and numbness? It may be from your back, or it may be the knee, or it can be an auto immune thing like rheumatoid disease. Get evaluated. Read more...

Severe knee pain bend, walk, stairs, etc. MRI 5 yrs ago partial tear of ACL & cyst. Now radiates in calf/down leg; wakes @ night; ankle fract May '13?

Get examined! Your symptoms suggest patellofemoral( kneecap) pain. Your 'cyst' may be causing the pain in the back of your knee ( popliteal/ Bakers' cyst ).Not sure if your 'partial' ACL injury is causing symptoms or not without a thorough examination( it can cause cysts in the knee joint occasssionally.) See a board certified ORS. Best of Luck! Read more...
