I'm a 29 year old mother with knock knee's . I had ortho. knee surgery in aug. of 03. Have had nothing but problems since. My leg is now a in. shorter in the left leg (surgery knee) siatic nerve issues to the point of not being able to walk. Degenartive disc disease in L4,L5,S1, my other knee is now starting to hurt and plantar facitas in my left foot. My muscles get tired easily. What is going on with me?! I'm tired of being bounced from doctor to doctor...Help please!

  • I have kyphosis (front to back curving of the spine) which caused degenerative arthritis (or something like that) in my l4, l5, and s1. I have also been experiencing weakness and tingling of my muscles. I have had knee pain for about three years, not knock knees however. I am about to get some more tests done, I will tell you what the results of these are, maybe it will be of some use to you.
