Persistent tenderness in right knee and groin area post injury to big toe. Possible causes and cure?

A patient complains of persistent tenderness in the right knee and groin area. The tenderness started a few weeks after he injured the big toe of his right foot , which became red, swollen, warm, and painful. He says the toe improved without medical attention. The knee and groin tenderness remain. What could the physician identify as the cause of the patient’s knee and groin pain? What is a possible treatment?

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the knee and groin after an injury to the toe can be due to a lymph node swelling due to the infection. Or the pain can result from myalgia, arthritis, decreased calcium levels, etc. A direct detailed examination will help in diagnosis.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
