Hi doctor,

Before seven years, I got surgery for knock knees. Now, for the past one year, I have been suffering from knee pain. Also, I have pain in the foot, ankle, chest and back. I am not on any regular medication. I am only doing some exercise to get relieved from the pain.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • What you need to do is blood tests as follows.
  1. CBC (complete blood count).
  2. ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate).
  3. RFT (renal function test).
  4. LFT (liver function test).
  5. Serum vitamin D.
  6. Serum vitamin B12.
  • Do a scanogram (or x-ray) of the lower limbs with patella facing forward. Also, send me a clinical picture of your entire leg while standing.
  • Do these things and get back to me for an accurate advice for treatment.

Probable diagnosis:

Knock knees under investigation.
