Knee Pain / Knee Cap Movement / Pins & Needles in Toes
« on: May 23, 2005, 08:49:39 PM »
I get EXTREME knee pain.  When I get this my right knee cap moves to the left (to the inside of my leg) and am unable to straighten my leg or walk on it properly.  I also get pin & needles in my toes with it too.

Does anyone else experience this or have any remedies or advice?

Have you seen your GP or OS?  You need to have your knee evaluated.  X-rays and a good orthopedic evaluation should be able to tell you if you have a serious problem.  With the patella moving medially to the inside of the leg and catching, you could be having a subluxation of the knee cap.  I don't know if that would cause the tingling or not, but the OS should be able to tell you.

Good luck, and let us know how you're doing.
