Annoying leg/knee pain could this be the signs of a broken leg or knee?


I have been struggling with an annoying leg/knee pain that has been bothering the heck out of me for quite sometime. When I try to do a standing position I can barely stand for five minutes before my leg starts to twitch and when the twitching begins a really huge sharp pain starts and barely goes away. When I have attempted to move I seem to have a limp on my leg and I tried to exercise my leg but can barely exercise it because if it gets touched a big pain comes out. I seem to think that my leg or knee may be broken because I've never had a leg hurt so badly. And I can never go to sleep because when I try to switch positions on my bed my leg flares up and is really painful. I asked my mom to take me to a doctor and she keeps saying no and soaking my leg in water doesn't help at all
What are these leg pains/knee pains and do they go away with time or would I need to see a doctor?

I have discovered a new problem with my troubling leg and when I have attempted to move my leg it doesn't seem to bend and when my leg attempts to bend a loud clicking or snapping sound is heard from my knee when I move. And it has prevented me from sitting properly in a chair and getting dressed is a struggle. I rubbed pain relieving cream on my leg and it calms it down a little but the pain returns the next day. And now I noticed that when the pain comes a bunch of sweat comes out. I tried to get my mother to take me to the doctor but she insists on waiting until after the holidays . I can't wait that long and i'm so weak and this leg is preventing me from having fun and going places. Is it possible that my leg is broken?

I would definitely get it checked out. It could be a number of things, but it sounds like a muscle problem more than a bone problem - so I wouldn't call it a "broken" leg issue because you don't break a muscle. I'm not a doctor and I don't know enough about your issue, so I won't be so presumptuous as to diagnose your illness. But, seriously, go see a doctor. My condolences - I hope someone takes you to a doctor soon or you call an ambulance at some point.
