Kindly show me x-rays of affected part. In the mean time you may sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring folding beds or thick matress are harmful do hot fomantation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. For emergency treatment contact your nearest hospital or family doctor.

Back pain, pain & numbness in legs, pain at hip or back of legs may be due weakness of muscles or nerves causing difficulty in blood flow to your back or legs. Or it may be due to slip disc of back at lumbar region resulting in sciatic nerve compression causing radiating pain & numbness from lower back till legs.
You should go for physiotherapy treatment for it to reduce pain & numbness and to improve muscle power of back & legs. You can visit my profile to book appointment with me for physiotherapy treatment.

Hi = Relax and stay positive. = Increase fluid intake. = Eat seasonal fruits for natural vitamins = Do streching of hamstring, quadriceps, and calf muscles. = If you are overweight, reduce weight by cycling or swimming as it gives low impact on joints. = Do check your calcium and vit. d = Apply moist heat pad to affected joint and muscles. If still you dont get relief consult physiotherapist as there are various causes for leg/ joint pain and some test may be required for further investigation. Best wishes.
