Hi, I have a constant pain in my left knee when I stand up, sometimes it feels like my knee is just going to give in and if I tense my leg the pain gets unbearable. Occasionally I get the pain in my ankle and foot but it's constantly in my knee. Any ideas? Thanks
Knee pain can be indicative of minor or serious issues with the knee from knee strain to ligament or cartilage damage. As you have described stability issues with your knee this can indicate ligament damage. So I would suggests you see your GP to assess this and refer you for further testing, you may need an MRI scan, and possible referral to an orthopaedic specialist if needed.
