Pain from knee to ankle after basketball injury..
« on: June 13, 2007, 02:45:48 AM »
So..I had a basketball game, in this game i went up for a layup and got shoved in the air, when i landed i managed to plant my right foot, but right when i did that, a girl from the other team managed to hit(kick) the lateral side of my lower leg causing horrible pain in that area. Later that night when i got home my knee felt really unstable and the pain was beginning to go from the knee to the ankle instead of just the area where i got kicked. Do you have any idea of what this may be... This happened 2 weeks ago and it still hurts, some days more than others, i had another basketball game last week in which i played, but if i landed with all of my weight in that leg, sometimes it gave out, and other times it was just horrible pain in the whole leg. Normally after i play, i have a hard time putting a lot of pressure on that leg, hence why im not playing very much. Somenights it doesnt hurt at all, while other night i can barely sleep becasue the pain is soo bad. I am making a doctors appt, sometime soon, if you have any idea of what this may be, please message me back. Thanks
right knee - lateral release in 2004

left knee - small meniscus tear and patellar cartilage tear. Had surgery in 2005 where it all got fixed and had a lateral release. Knee hurts more now that it did before surgery, chondromalacia.

Sounds like some ligament injury if you are unstable.Could be just strained but also worse. Try RICE now and call and make an appointment ASAP.
Surgery 6 times left knee torn meniscus, RSDS,chondromalacia, nervdamage cause constant nervpain,chronic inflamm.
Spinaldamage wheeler 100%.
Right knee damaged aug-06, use brace surgery 4/9-07.LCL tear.

Horrible pain means you need to see a doctor ASAP and stop playing your sport. Every time your knee gives out you are doing more and more damage.
