Strain?
Apr 20, 2011
Hi , fellow knee sufferers,
Since my last post I have hurt my so called good knee/leg, I was out in the garden and tried to pick up an apple tree I am growing in a container I took all the weight on my good right knee/leg but the container plus tree was far to heavy for me and and I put it straight down.
I knew I had done something to my leg but it was not to bad so I iced and rest it. I was struggling with stairs at work when I felt I lost all power in it and it felt worse than it did in the garden.
I now have numbness in my toes and sole of my foot and down the outside of my shin.
My quads across my patella and down the side of both kness hurt on and off after I have used stairs a few times and my thigh gets a pain like I have bash it against the corner of a table. These pains can be quite sore but travel about my leg and I don’t get them all at the same time.
My knee feels sore all over but I have no clicks or pops in it.
Has anyone else done this and how long did it take to go away/


Thanks nomparal

You say "I now have numbness in my toes and the sole of my foot and down the outside of my shin". That should not be coming from any knee injury.
You should be looking at the lower lumbar spine, L5/S1, even if you have no back symptoms.
