Knee pain at night is a common discomfort that can be caused by injury, arthritis, bursitis, gout, and more. This pain at bedtime is not only frustrating but also can lead to pain-induced insomnia, which can leave you exhausted during the day.

Results published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery found patients who underwent anatomic total or reverse shoulder arthroplasty had “significant and rapid” improvements in sleep disturbance after surgery.
A burning sensation in the hip can be caused by a multitude of conditions like hip bursitis, a pulled muscle, or a pinched nerve. Burning hip pain can feel like a sharp, searing, or achy pain in the upper outer thigh and it often results from inflammation.

The Achilles tendon connects the calf muscles to the heel bone, also known as the calcaneus. If the Achilles tendon ruptures, a specific test can be done — the Achilles tendon rupture test, also called the Thompson test or calf squeeze test. Since the Achilles tendon is essential for walking and running, a tear necessitates starting treatment as soon as possible.
