Extreme knee pain that moves into my lower leg and feet!
Patient : My knee pain is in my left knee cap the same knee of the foot I had surgery on. The pain isn't always there but when it does come it wakes me up and it hurts so bad that it makes me sick. The pain feels like it is beneath my knee cap and when I touch it it has a feeling that is very strange (almost like a vibration) it's extremely weird. I have noticed that it hurts wRse At night but today is an exception the pain came first thing this morning. Also when the pain comes shortly after, the pain moves all the way down the bottom of my leg into my feet and my toes feel tingly. I've also noticed that it doesn't hurt as extensively when my knee is bent but it is still terrible just not as bad as when it is straight. The pain is so bad that I can't walk when it starts hurting. The pain doesn't last but a few hours but I normally take pain medicine and rub biofreeze on it and rap it in a warm towel and try to go to sleep because otherwise I suffer terribly from the pain.
