I have pain radiating from my left hip down my left leg; feels like knives; also pain in my right thigh and both calves along with shooting, knife-like pain in both knees. What could this be?
I know you posted this question quite awhile ago, but I was wondering if you had a diagnosis and treatment that you would like to share.
It did sound as though it could have been the beginning of arthritis or even a pinched nerve. I hope you sought medical help and found relief.

pain from left hip sounds like bone rub bing bone[arthritis] could be the culprit. mine was so bad my husband pushed me in a wheel chair if we went to a mall. I had a hip replacement and all is well.Get an MRI and it will tell the whole story. An orthopedic sugeon is the Doctor to see.Good Luck
thank you Laura Jane; sometimes I feel like I am the only person who is suffering the pain. I will see an orthopedic surgeon about this--I can't see going thru the rest of my life feeling and suffering like this. I hope you are better and can enjoy life. again, thanks for your reply!! have a happy Halloween!!!
Glad to hear it, do you have restless leg syndrome too? I have suffered terribly with Arthritis in both hands, wrists, right knee and my left foot is very bad.The gabapentin takes care of the nerve pain and Tramadol for pain along with 200mg of Celebrex a day.which is a drug for arthritis.Let me know how you make out. remember the Dc is employed by you so you have a right to request Xrays and most important an MRI. I do hope you have insurance.This is not to be considered medical advice it just comes from someone who suffered for years, and now I do pretty well. Good Luck.what is your name?
