Swollen ankle, leg goes numb while sitting and standing, lower back pains, tendons in knee

My ankles are swelling all the time which is new, and my left leg goes numb quite often whether I am sitting or standing. I try and move around a lot but that does not seem to help. Since this has started my left knee has been in quite a lot of pain, it feels like my tendons are tight under my knee cap. I also have lower back pain which goes into my left buttock.

Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
These symptoms are suggesting that you may be having a disc prolapse. I would recommend you to get MRI of the spine to see if there is a disc protrusion and if yes then how much . According to that you can plan . Till that time you can take Pregabalin and Methylcobalamine.This will provide you symptomatic relief.
