My 60 yr old legs and joints have never caused me a problem but recently I’ve developed what seems to be a needle prick pain that is followed by a weakness in my right knee/leg. I exercise regularly and there was no “injury” that I know of. The pain is not in my knee joint. It’s in the bottom of my thigh muscle about two finger widths above my knee cap. The discomfort is inconsequential but the random weakness is troubling. Sunday I bent over to pick up something with my weight over my right leg and almost fell down. It does not seem to be a problem when I’m exercising or otherwise warmed up. It is not in any way tender to the touch. I’m sure someone has experienced a similar problem. Is it a precursor to a more serious condition? Do I need professional attention? If so what type of pro should I see an Orthopedic MD or a physical therapist?
