I was treated for(but know surgery) 10 years ago, for a bulging disc. Two days ago, my left knee nearly collapsed. I am wondering if the pain is traveling down the left lower back, down the left hip and continuing to the knee? Will I need an x-ray of all three? Thanks for anyone who may be able to help.

I'm still learning to use this way of communicating electronically. Thanks to bj1208. I have made an appointment to see an orthopedic specialist, 8/12/14. I have had some success with aquatic therapy, deep water and shallower water exercises. Part of deep water exercise is to rest in a vertical position, weights on ankles and "noodle' lifting you, providing mild decompression. I repeated this in the lake recently and ALL the pain went away while I was just hanging there. Of course the pain returned after leaving the water. How do I find the best aquatic therapy people? Thanks, Crosby(screen name, Cupsuptic)View Thread
