Swelling behind the knee with pain inside lower leg?
Believe it or not, it may be sciatica. If you lie on your back, with a pillow under your knees--and put heat under the back of the knee, you may find some temporary relief. However, you probably need to visit a doctor or physical therapist to relieve the issue.

Probably. If you have emphysema and cannot breathe well, not enough oxygen is going through your body. Swelling of the legs could be a symptom of it not getting enough oxygen.… Since the legs are extremities of the body, the body could be keeping the oxygen through different routes, closer to the core.
Yes, because all of the joints are connected.
"WATER" ON THE KNEE YOU COULD HAVE SOMTHING that some people refer to as "plumbers knee". If you spend a good part of your day kneeling down for your job, or oth…erwise, this will happen. I help a young man with cerebral palsy who spends a lot of time crawling on his hands and knees to access something. He had a large pocket of "water" develop on the front of his knee. It's the bodies response to repeated use of the knee on a hared surface, in order to protect the kneecap, it covers it in "water". Many times there is no pain with this condition. See a healthcare professional or your family doctor or local clinic. They can drain the fluid from your knee and give you ideas on how to stay off the knee. Good Luck!

Some people think that just like other problems, one should also rest or lie down if he is suffering from back pain. In reality, one should move the pain area as much as possi…ble. Moving the pain area helps in getting rid of this problem but it also does not mean to move it for a long period of time. Neither too much rest, nor too much movement is good for lower back pain, left side. www.whatisbackpain.info
