    Muscle problems around knees

    Hi,

    New to the forum so hello everyone..

    I have problems around the muscles associated around my knees...

    I cannot find anything at all slightly resembling my problem on the internet, my doctor says its most probably arthritis and bats me off..

    Background,
    I have had a bursa at the back of my right knee a few years back which has cleared up.
    I have had problems with ligaments on the outer side of my right knee which has cleared up
    I have had small unobstructive bouts of lower back pain which is fine at the minute.
    I have had a DVT in my right calf
    I have had a Plantar fasciitis on my right foot for over two years which has finally subsided and seems to be healing.

    The problem i have is my muscles surrounding my knees on both legs ache like tooth ache pain when i crouch squat down, i feel like a old man. theres no knee pain just muscle ache.
    When i kneel down after a couple of minutes i have to straighten my legs or change position and straighten my legs out to relieve the pain.
    A fully bent knee aches where the two big tendons come down from my hamstring at the back of my knee.

    Its very strange problem that i cannot compare anywhere and feel it must be old age.

    Any help would be great to even knowing what i might be suffering from...

    regards
    lee

    Hie

    It looks like you have identified your problem as coming from the hamstrings tendon area. The biceps femoris muscle which is part of the hamstrings refers pain to the quadriceps tendon. The pain is referred by possible latent trigger points located on the outer lower third of the back of your thigh.
