Leg Trouble Help Anyone?
An_246159 posted:
I ran alot during the school months and took a month break. A week ago I started up again and on the fourth day my leg suddenly gave out. The pain is on the left side of my knee on the bone that sticks out and it becomes very painful when I walk and sometimes the pain radiates down. When I am sitting however sometimes I feel no pain at all but it doesn't make sense to me since it is a little swollen also. Does anyone have any ideas what I might have done to it?

Hi An,

I don't know what's wrong. You can check one of the health boards here and the symptom checker But if it continues you ought to give your doctor a call. Good luck. Rich
