What causes continuous pain in right leg from waist to knee?
It happens only during day time. When I wake up in the morning the leg is ok but as the day rises the pain increases.
What can be the reason? And what should I do, consult a orthopedic or check for an infection?
Can be a ligament strain or poor posture.
Thanks for posting your query.
Common causes of pain that you have are-
Poor postural habits
Infection is not likely. The first step is to ensure that you maintain an appropriate posture while working on the computer. Take frequent stretch breaks and drink lots of water. Discontinue using pillow while sleeping straight. Do not lift heavy objects, especially after bending down. Eat a healthy wholesome meal which should satisfy your minerals and proteins requirement.
The most essential and long lasting remedy is exercises. There are certain back strengthening exercises that you must learn from a physiotherapist and perform them at home or work whenever possible. You can also undergo a weeks session of traction at your physiotherapist's clinic.
Last but not least, if its unbearable take medications or muscle relaxant prescribed by your physician. And if it has been long standing illness visit your orthopaedician and clinically-radiologically establish a diagnosis to commence definitive treatment.
I hope this answers your query.

Wishing you good health.
