Knee/Calf pain

I am an athlete and I play basketball. I have extreme pain in my knee and calf while running. It also hurts to bend down and then stand back up. I also have discomfort walking up and down stairs, and sometimes walking. I don't know what it is but I would really appreciate some help and answers. Thanks.

Hi there!

Well, without an evaluation it would be difficult to identify the cause of symptoms in your case. Possibilities include chondromalacia, tendonitis, bursitis, fractures, patellar dislocation, stress fractures, injuries to the internal knee ligaments/ menisci, infections/ inflammations, periostitis, arthritis, cyst formation, bone growths/ tumours, vitamin/ micro-nutrient deficiencies, neuro-muscular/ vascular issues etc. I would suggest consulting an orthopedician for an evaluation and appropriate management.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
