My knee intermittently doesn't work right to varying degrees, with pain to varying degrees

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hello all,

I have a knee problem. At first I ran into the dog, and I didn't realize my knee was that messed up, but a few days later I couldn't even walk. The picture of my knee where I drew on it was where the pain was. I think it was from running into the dog, but I'm not certain because it wasn't immediately a huge problem. 

Then a couple weeks later, my knee was finally getting good enough to walk on somewhat, and a horse kicked me. You can see the horse hoof print on the outside of my leg. 

That too seemed to take a while for the pain to be fully realized. Now it has been a few months, and my knee lets me walk on it sometimes without pain, while other times it's  extremely painful. Moreover, it seems like the location of the pain moves around.  Sometimes it's the inside of my  leg where I drew a circle,  sometimes it's a bone on inner side the knee, and sometimes it's the back of my knee, with cramping.

What do you guys think is wrong with it? I went to the doctor and he bent it around doing tests, but didn't find anything notable. Yet something is clearly wrong. I'm not a wimp, and I'm in a lot of pain sometimes. Further, the leg just doesn't seem to work right. My foot doesn't pick up the same, my leg doesn't swing forward the same, etc... sometimes worse than other times.

I wanted to start doing some leg exercises, like squats, to improve it, but it's simply too painful currently.

    Xray! Surely! Maybe you have a small hairline fracture or something? Trust yourself and get it looked into more, is my opinion.

    If it feels wrong & you have a lot of pain ask for x ray & referral to the Orthopods.

    Hi, I also have knee pain that can’t be specifically diagnosed too. I’ve had x-rays and an MRI. But to your point , there may be a problem with your back. If nerves are pinched your leg muscles can  be effected. Which could explain you  leg and foot problem. Hopefully you can get to the bottom of it.
