knee numbness

Posted by Juliek on 4/27/04 at 13:34 (149640)

OMYGOSH, can anyone give me a clue here?
Here is whats going on. When i stand on my feet....or.....sometimes even just walking for 10 minutes or longer, my knees go numb...well i say my knees but it is on the foreleg, sort of to the right side just maybe a bit above the knee. It starte d a few months ago, but now is worse. way worse. The only thing i can think of is that i had two bunionectomys (the kind they inserted screws and metal). I had one done in march of last year and one in july. I have had problems ever since...with footpain, stiffness, etc. Unless this could possibly be related to the knee numbness i dont know whats going on. I have no medical at the moment, so its not like i can afford to see a dr.
Please, if anyone knows what might be causing this, or has the same thing let me know?
thanks......knee numbed julie
