Sometimes I have a...

Sometimes I have a feeling of coolness on my knee or outer thigh, it moves around a bit and goes away no pain, no difference in skin color

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

I am over weight, but do not have high blood pressure, cholesterol or diabeties. I did tweak my knee a few weekends ago and it was slightly swollen so I assumed it is due to that but wanted to check

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No, no strange family history i notice it when I am sitting

I don't have any pain or anything, just a cool patch, that moves around sometimes

Dear friend, this sensation in the knee and thigh is characteristic of neuropathies, neuropathies are irritations or nerve alterations of a defined area that alter the function of an area or alter the superficial or deep sensitivity of a specific area,
for this to happen there must be trauma to the nerve or some kind of compression.
In effect after some traumatism or twisting or injury of a joint such as the knee, it tends to weaken and become inflamed, this inflammation generates compression on the nerve fibers generating such symptoms.
recovery from neuropathy is slow and depends on whether the injury is again stimulated, that is, whether your knee is still swollen or overloaded.
In your case you should let your knee rest from long walks or be standing for long hours as this slows down the recovery process.
This sensation will disappear in 3 weeks after the knee has recovered, so it is important to take care of it.
You should not be alarmed that these symptoms will disappear but you should take care of the knee from a new injury.

Sorry, just one, hurting the knee can effect the thigh nerve?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I can't tell if it is actually cold or just the feeling of cold, I believe it is the later
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
but I am unsure

Yes, totally, as the nerves pass through the thigh, the knee and reach the foot. in different diameters but have the same nerve fiber.

But his symptoms are totally temporary, he must let his knee recover and notice how they disappear.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
