Everyday i suffer with this niggling pain which goes from the back of my knee down towards my foot. i also suffer with stiffness in the morning too. i dont have any swelling in the area. i was just wondering if you had any idea what it might be. its been going on now for the last 6 weeks. thanks

Hi Melissa.

I doubt very much it's a pulled muscle. I do remember when i did get the pain in my legs, i went for an hour and a bit brisk walk and i was in agony with the pain but it hasnt subsided at all. i havent been out walking or exercising since, just resting but the pain is still there, and if it was a pulled muscle but the pain not have subsided by now? it's been 6 weeks. the pain hasnt even eased at all.

Thanks for the update Sarah,

Would you consider the 'annoying pain' something such as a pulled muscle? Have you tried maybe doing some stretching before bed and in the morning?

Have you been doing anything out of the norm in the last 6 weeks? Exercising? Walking? Is there anything that you can think of that changed in the past 6 weeks that may have caused the pain?

Hi Melissa.

The pain is constantly there 24/7. its more an annoying pain. i dont have tingling sensations or numbness, just stiffness when i get out of bed in the mornings. there the only symptoms i'm experiencing at the moment. i have not been to see a doctor yet.

Hi Sorcha,

Thank you for your question. Niggling? I guess I am a little confused about what you are trying to explain by this word. Are you experiencing numbness? Tingling sensations? Pain? Have you been to a doctor about your leg? What did he/she tell you?

Thanks for providing a little more information so we may be able to better assist you.
