  • I had my thyroid removed in February and after a lot of problems with medication, so other symptoms are under controll I now have the same issues as you. Pain in left leg in front and behind knee, also in hips & lower back, numbness of toes, hands & feet (comes n goes) I had x Ray of lower back in early June, showed nothing, and just had ultra sound of left knee,thigh & groin. No abnormalities showed & also ruled out blood clots & Baker's Cyst ( cyst can be related to arthritis.) Left knee swollen. sometimes feels muscular sometimes like a trapped nerve. so now back to Doctor to see what can be done next.

    You have to keep moving but don't over exercise. I too am frightened about it, although older than you, I'm 68. I'm just going to go through the tests and deal with it as it comes. There is a lot that can be done. Vitamin D is important, have you had your levels tested?

    Also vitamin K is worth researching and looking into. You may need other supplements too like B12 and other vit B complex. It's an autoimmune problem that can come with thyroid issues. I read that cod liver oil, evening primrose oil are also worth looking at to keep joints & muscles supple. But be guided by Doctor initially until tests are done. Good luck, keep in touch. Valerie x

  • You may have arthritis of the hip joint, pain from there goes to the knee, the pain is traveling down the sciatica nerve.

    The xray will show any arthritis.

  • ok thank you i have sciatica in my back from an injury i had when i was 11years old so i will have to wait and find out this tuesday thank you.dawn

  • I am 47 and have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis (OA) of both hips and spine. I also have two slipped discs in my lower back. My back pain gives me symptoms such as pain travelling into my buttocks and also down my leg into knees & ankles. My hip pain is present in both hips, groin and top of both legs. For me, the pain is separate and distinct. The X Ray will show whether there are OA changes in your hips or back. An MRI scan will give better detail of soft tissue, e.g. Disc damage. The key for me is having a supportive GP as well as support from friends and family. Arthritis UK website is also very informative. Good luck with your X Ray. Once you know what it is you have to deal with only then you can start to make a plan. Life does not stop with a diagnosis of OA, you just have to focus on what you can do. Good luck!
