I have late stage Lymphodema in my entire left leg, from just under the knee and down. Recently I had a small infection that I conquered quickly but pulled a muscle in my knee while healing. The muscle burns when I move my leg in certain directions (lifting up the knee, pulling it toward my chest, dragging it outward, rotating it outward) and feels like it is just below the knee cap and to the right. Any suggestions on how to help this? When I lay down I have no pain and just as I'm relaxing the knee will spasm and I'm wide awake again.
