shooting pain starting at knee, 2 years post-op
« on: February 05, 2009, 03:06:45 AM »
Hi all,  I am a success story, I believe.  I had meniscus repair at age 42 and it took!  for two years I've been able to hike, bike, ski, dance, etc. with no pain and no swelling!  I have had a large numb area from the knee down to the foot, but of no consequence other than it feels wierd.

BUT, all of a sudden, I have started with shooting pains that either go down the front of my leg that starts at the front of the knee, or pain that shoots out from the medial side of the knee, travelling both up and down the leg.... The pain is caused by active moving of my leg...ie. if I move my leg with my hands, no pain.  If my leg muscles move the leg, pain...

in particular, pulling the leg up, or up and in seems to cause the problem.

Does anyone have any idea what this is?  I've read a million post and can't seem to find the same description. 

Thanks, nancy

FYI - 6 years later, I don't even remember writing this post...ie. the shooting pain must not have lasted long.

All good then? No pain of any kind?
