I've had generally bad hips and knees for four years now. I was doing three different sports, and running a mile before school, so my knee and hip problems weren't due to inactivity.
About three days ago, I got off crutches. I was in crutches because my left knee buckled when I was going down the stairs.
The day after I got off my crutches, I started feeling pain all throughout my legs except for my adductors. I took some ibuprofen that night, but it hurt so much I couldn't go to sleep. Please note I have an extremely high pain tolerance.
Today, I took some Tylenol with coating, and it only brought the pain downs couple levels (on a scale of 1-10, the pain was originally a 10, it changed to an 8 after I took the Tylenol)
i dont understand why my legs are hurting so bad; I've never had this pain except for growing pains in my legs. But, this pains were never as severe as now. I measured myself and I hadn't grown at all.
Does anyone know why my legs are hurting?
