    Re: buckling knee

    My knees (something knees) buckle when I stand sometimes. They also do it sometimes when I'm walking or try to pick up my speed. I don't have back pain, though. I do have a slipped disk in my back but when that presses a nerve I'm usually bedridden with a heating pad and muscle relaxers. Moving is too excrutiating. Hope it turns out to be just a back problem a few chiro visits can solve. Good luck.

    Re: buckling knee

    Lower back pain could be due to compression on a nerve on your spine and not MS related. In terms of the knee buckling, really hard to say. It could be possible from your brain not communicating with that body part but again, unto itself wouldn't necessarily be an MS symptom. Years ago when I was getting into a cab, my knee buckled out from under me for no apparent reason and I sprained a ligament. In retrospect, was this MS? Hard to know for sure but it's possible it was just plain old stress and how I was getting into the cab.

    Re: buckling knee

    Still using walker and knee still giving in &out
    MRI shows NO flare up-- guess AVONEX is working
    went to pcare dr.-- dx siatica nerve (probably over did in garden)waiting for X_RAYS of lower back and knee
    treatrment hot and cold compress on back and a massage doesnt think chiro would help but rec phys therpy
    waiting 4 xrays--- U would think having MS would be enough

    Re: buckling knee

    I've had problems with my knee and ankles. The worst is the stairs. If i'm not paying attention I can plant my foot down and realize it's not gonna hold me up. Two years ago I tore all the ligaments in my ankle with this happening. I just assumed I had weak ankles. But the pain was nothing I ever felt before. I thought my foot was gonna rip off!! My foot did a complete 90 degree bend under the ankle as I walked down my front stairs. Which is bad enough, but it was while i was taking my autisitc son down my front steps to his bus. Luckily the driver came to my aid and helped me in the house. I had to walk my other son to school the next day too because I had no car, and wonderful hubby said he couldn't take off work.


    Ahhh the memories!

    Re: buckling knee

    I have a very strange case of Knee Buckling. Info. 76 years old, taking 85 mg of diuretics daily to keep from retaining fluid, oxygen therapy, using a nebulizer 2 3 times daily. COPD, CHF, shortness of breath, but no pain anywhere except night time leg cramps. My knees have buckled on several occasions in the last 4 months resulting in 3 falls. The oddity is this always happens while I am answering the call of the diuretics or on the way to do so. Anyone able to help this little o boy? cb

    Re: buckling knee

    Hi, cboshers. I'm guessing that a search for buckled knee brought you here...
    It's really not a symptom that unto itself screams MS even though as you can read in the posts below, some of us have experienced it. I'm sorry don't have any ideas for you but I wish you luck and hope you feel better soon!
