Iam a male with age 75 years ,weight 80 kgs recently when I bend down it creates unbearable pain on my left leg , it occurs while i sit on commode , while I try to drive scooter and sometimes when i sit down for more than 20 minutes, its unbearable pain. The pain is immense on left leg only on leg cap, left of left leg pindlis and on thigh. I got my medical checkup done everything including kidney , heart , sugar etc are ok , only ESR IS HIGH which is 50. I do not have anyother problem but only a severe pain sometimes which occurs at when i bend down. What do you think this problem is .. is it related to veins or bones. I do have mascular contraction and low on calcium upon checks. what do you suggest ?

ESR is raised whenever there is an inflammation in the body. It is one of the common findings in a patient suffering from arthritis. Your problem is related to bones. There are two causes that can cause pain in knee. They are osteoarthritis i.e degeneration of bones due to ageing and rheumatoid arthritis i.e autoimmune disease of bone. You should consult an orthopedic doctor to know the cause and get treated accordingly.
