Hi. I live in Colorado and it is near the end of winter break (I don't know if this info is relevant) and lately I have been having problems in my right knee and below area. About a week ago, I noticed a strange limp I have been walking around on. I collapse (bend) my right knee as I walk. It isn't serious now, but it has been getting worse (going from about 170 to 165 degree angle to 145 to 140 angle if that makes any sense.) my right hip has felt weird also, but most of the sensation is in my right knee. Also, my right foot has been sightly numb to feeling and temperature, but still has feeling. This is strange, since I am reasonably fit, have no injuries to that area that I can think of, and only 17. I don't know what happened or what it is, but I am thinking it has something to do with nerve connections in my leg. I don't know what it is or if I should get it treated. Please help!
