Q.

Leg Pain

Hi, I have some discomfort in my right knee and hamstrings. A few days back after my workout, I realise that my right knee cannot be straighten fully. When I do straighten it, the most right side of a particular muscle or tendon seems to hurt a lot and it feels like the muscle above my knee cap and below or under my quadriceps hurt a lot. It feels like it's swollen but I see no physical inflammation. It is particularly worst after I wake up. I have issues walking up and down the stairs sometimes after I seat too long.

It sounds like a bursitis around the knee, called pes anserine bursitis.

You need to see a rheumatologist or orthopaedic surgeon and you may require a local cortisone injection.
