But can't tell you this week's lottery numbers!
May 26th, 2016
I experienced problem with my left knee, more precisely behind the knee bone and in the muscle/ligaments between the hamstring and calf. Whenever i move my left leg i begin feeling very strong stiffness there, and often when i touch behind the knee its almost like a hard ball of tension/knot.
i can exercise fine without much pain and i did a few classes at the gym while this was going on. but it hurts a lot if i try to stretch the leg out after work out e.g. leaning towards my toes with straight legs.
i thought it was muscle tightness but massage didnt help and it has been like this for over a week now…
Could you please advise on what it might be/possible treatments/cost?
The Guru Responded:
You just may have an inflamed popliteal bursa, sometimes called a Bakers Cyst.
They are a bit of a rarity but your symptoms and description doesn’t sound like a “classic” patellofemoral joint issue, which can refer pain into the back of your knee.
There are a few others that would need differently diagnosis such as an issue with popliteus (the muscle) and the sciatic nerve that runs through this space.
It may be well worth you while seeing someone who could point you in the right direction.
