My quadriceps are not symmetrical. I do lift weights and have been having pain in my left hip flexor. I then noticed in my left leg that my quad doesnt continue all the way up to my joint it abruptly stops. On the other side, my right leg is totally normal has no pain and no abrupt stop, the muscle continues to my hip joint. What is wrong with my left leg?

Hi, my 13yr old runs track and has been complaining of pain in his left quadricep. It s significantly larger than the right one. Is this something that I should take him to his primary doctor for? Or would it be feasible to place ice on it, wrap it up and elevate his leg to see what happens from there?

I have a history of trauma to the knee. A physician diagnosed me as having sprained my medial colateral ligament and a 1st degree medial meniscus tear. The physical therapist disagreed and said it was a only a strain of the vastus medialis. So i was treated for that. I was fine until returning to biking left my knee sore. Now I'm experiencing slight pain. My knee becomes extremely stiff after having a shower. What is going on?

Twice I was doing squats and it caused a huge swelling of the knee; mainly at the lower vastus lateralis. I have gout fairly often and believed this was the cause. The knee could not be bent at all; very little pain, just swollen. After about 3 weeks, I fully recovered both times. Now, I was jumping on a trampoline and the swelling has remained for 6 months. Sometimes less, sometimes more, but I can at least walk on it. Any ideas?
