I am 34 years old this year and have gained weight rapidly over the past 6 years due to work stress and overeating. I am now close to 100kgs at 1.68m tall. I have noticed that whenever I climb up stairs or walk for too long, my knees shake and there is pain. Sometimes there is swelling. I have seen a local GP and the advice was for me to lose weight and the issue should resolve. However, I am not sure if this is purely a weight issue. Should I wait and observe to see if the pain goes away when I gradually lose weight? Or would you recommend I do a scan?
My father is 72 years old. His feet shake when he stands. He also mentions feeling something like an electric shock in his knees. Is this arthritis, Doctor? What treatment should he undergo?
I am 28 years old. I have a problem with recurring plantar fasciitis. I have done shock wave therapy several times but each therapy session works only temporarily to relieve the pain. Is there any permanent solution you would recommend? I don’t wish to keep going through therapy when I’m still so young.
I am 48 years old. I spend most of my time working behind a desk. However, at night, after work, my calves are always tight and painful, and it feels as though I’ve walked a long distance. It happens almost every day. What is the cause? Is this dangerous?
I had a traffic accident when I was 7 and since then I have been walking with a limp. I am now 20 years old and am considering seeking treatment to fix the limp. Is it possible to treat so I can walk normally?
I am 44 years old this year and I run almost 30km a week. Lately I have been noticing a burning sensation in my knee joints after running. The soles of my feet will burn as well, and my toes will itch. I will then have to massage my joints, feet and toes for quite some time before the burning goes away. Is this a sign that I have overworked my legs? Do i need to go for any tests and consider treatment? Thank you for sharing.
