  • knee & leg pain
    I have never had pain in my knee or legs untill about 2 weeks ago.....I worked in the garden on my knees for hours, then I wore a pair of very uncomfortable heels and had to walk up and down about 30 stairs several times in one day....then the pain started, first behind my knee, then the side,now it has moved up my leg and around my hip....does it sound like bursitis? Please help me......Thank you!!Luey

    It does sound a bit like bursitis, though you'd probably do best to check with a doctor - which I am not.

    Bursitis is when the bursae sacs in your joints swell up, usually as a result of an injury or infection. If you spend a lot of time kneeling (like you mentioned while gardening), you can get what's known as Clergyman's Knee or Carpet Layer's Knee. It's like Tennis Elbow, but in your knees.

    The good news is that you can treat it using PRICE: Protection (knee brace), Rest (a few days should do it), Ice (20 minutes every 3 to 4 hours), Compression (brace or ACE bandage), Elevation (get that knee above the level of your heart). The pain should disappear fairly quickly.
