Knee cap hurts to touch

Common Questions and Answers about Knee cap hurts to touch


Hello, the last few months, ive had pain above my knee cap, if i press on the muscle or tendor that seems <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> attach <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the top of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cap</span>, it is quite sore right where it connects to the knee cap, and when walking its ok, but stairs it really is sore, sitting down and getting up, kneeling. Ive tried applying heat to it, then stretching, then applying ice going for walks, stretching, seems to give temporary releif.
The bump has only recently started to give me pain while I'm active. it is not painful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch, but it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hurt</span>s really bad when I climb stairs or bend my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span>. what could be the problem?
it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hurt</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch it and put pressure on it when I am walking. it is also swelled (kind of feels like there is fluid in it). I also feel grinding at the top of my knee when I move it and there it pops on the left side. Almost two weeks ago I fell and skinned the same knee pretty badly. The part that got skinned is healing nicely but I don't know what this lump is. Any ideas on what this could be? And is it something I should go see my doctor about?

i HAVE HAD THE SAME ISSUES. The back of my thigh down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> my calf <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hurt</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch, almost like how your skin hurts when u have the flu. The only thing is Im not sick and it is only on my back side of left leg. I too told my doctor and she kind of laughed and said she cant imagine what that is about, like it was no big deal. I am concerned though, this is the second time it happened.
But, I've been in her shoes so many times I lost count! it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hurt</span>S and contributes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> more abuse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> dull the innner pain. I'm really pissed about our other thread on fioricet addiction and this only popped in front of my eyes as I was scrolling down. I must read the rest on the donation part because this forum has provided much comfort and information to me. So, I must go now. A reception at the deceased's house.
it is extremely painful to the touch. If I bend my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> all the way, as the skin pulls over my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span>, it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hurt</span>s very bad. it's so painful that I can't do anything that involved kneeling down where my knee would touch the floor. Like I said, it's tiny... about the size of a zit. Any ideas? I'm a 26 year old male.
I went hiking this fall and did approx 12miles in Shenandoah NP, carrying minimal weight, over a half day. Since then, I've had a sharp pain in my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span>, just below my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cap</span>, but only when straightening my leg after sitting with my legs pulled in, standing for long periods, or sitting in a vehicle for long hours. Rest does not seem to help and to my knowledge, the area around my knee is not swollen or tender to the touch. I haven't taken any falls or landed awkwardly on it.
its been about 2 weeks and it still hurts like it just happened if I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cap</span> hard enough. If I poke it softly, I noticed its numb up until theres enough pressure for it to hurt. it doesnt hurt when I walk or lift boxes at work, but it feels really weak all day and if I bend it theres a tension that starts at the top of the knee all the way down to the bottom. Any idea what might be wrong? Thanks!
On monday I smacked my knee extremely hard into the mule post at the bottom of the stairs the pain was extremely bad, i've been limping ever since the knee looks deformed there was a massive purple bruise which has now gone down. There is still swelling on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cap</span> and the leg feels numb yet painful and tingly to the toes. it's my right leg so it's my main leg and I don't know what to do. I can move my leg but its really painful.
Last night I injured my knee and today it looks like I have a ballon in front of my knee <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cap</span>. I have Dr. appt for tomm and hope they can take the fluid out since its very painful. I wanted <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> take two advils but I know they are very bad for our liver, any suggestions as to what I can take for the inflamation and pain?
The inside of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> burned and hurt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> even <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch at that point. I got an MRI after that visit. when I went back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> see my Dr. again, he said I only have a small tear in my menisuc on the inside of my knee and that he doesn't think I need surgery. He shot me up with cortisone, warned me it would be sore for a day or two, and then said to just go get a check up in a month. I got the cortisone shot 3 days ago, the pain, popping, and knee giving out has not gone away.
I go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> bed and can't sleep it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hurt</span>s so bad. I get up it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hurt</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get up. Iam 58 and have always been an outdoors person. Now I can't get on a horse not alone ride. I can't ride a bike but what hurts most is to know I can't even get down like I use to going to beach kneeling down to pick up shells or sit down on ground. As it is If I fall I can"t get up. Not only pain but feeling helpless and the stares I get. Yes I have pain meds they hardly take edge off.
Although the pain doesn't show up when I poke or touch my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span>, I can duplicate the pain when my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> is slightly bent and I press below the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cap</span> and rub <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the painward side while still pressing. I almost thought it was a chipped bone at first, but now (because of the above) I think it is a collection of fluid and the pain is from the fluid trying to migrate to an area of muscle or tissue that doesn't want to separate. Some of you may be aware of how powerful hydraulic pressure can be.
If you have Patella Femoral Syndrome you should have pain located around or under the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cap</span>. it is most common in runners. it is one of the most misdiagnosed running related injuries. Pain is often aggravated by bending because this causes the most motion of the knee cap over the femoral groove. I assume your physician agrees with your diagnosis. The treatment is what your physicians are telling you....
i was bck to work and suddenly i felt so weak in my leg and the pain was unbearable below the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cap</span> ,gradually the pain spread <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> my calf and back of my thigh but there was no swelling at redness no bruises...i tried al sorts of heat rubs and pain killers ...wich showed temporary effect. went in for an x-ray fearing arthritis or rheumetisis..later figured out its a sprain...was put on some more pain killers n more heat rubs...
Please try <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> a neurologist, preferably, and see if you can start taking Gabapentin. it would be expensive I think with no insurance, but Gabapentin seems to be a life-saver for me so far.
I thought I had a great Dr the first time to but kept going back and he told me nothing was wrong the last 2 times he did not even <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span>. I finally had it and went <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> another dr took him a week to find out the parical was loose and everytime I walked it was causing pain. I had no chice but to have the full knee it has been hard and painful but nothing like the first time. meds at least help now and I can sleep for 3-4 hours at a time.
I still can't put extra pressure on it, do squats or lunges, and it still <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hurt</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch it even with light pressure at the fracture site.
it is sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch where the implant ends towards my ankle and always <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hurt</span>s when I talk a lot. I always just work through it. when I run or jog it really hurts. I am not so old that I don't want to run or job sometimes. Now I am developing sebaceous cysts on that leg. I had one removed and now I have three more. I went back to the Dr who put in the implant and he said my leg bothers me because it isn't as strong as the other leg. But I don't think that it is. I exercise a lot.
Very appropriate!!!! Can't believe we went from cd 4 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> our new journey <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> our journey <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> Dec!!

m out of the hospital, I went in for Emergency surgery last night. They had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> cut open my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> take 2 of the screws out. I have had to take two vicoden. I'm really scared guys and I have a glazed over feeling, I really need to talk so if someone could write I would really appreciate it.
Every morning when i wake up i have a numbness in both my legs and vibrations which causes me not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> wake up... And also when i <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch the place where i got stiched it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hurt</span>s, which never happened before...

People are allergic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> me. And a lot of other people around the world are suffering from this condition. Doctors do not beleive the reports, and most of them claim that we are crazy but we all know that we're far from being crazy. This condition causes so much heartache and stress. I have sent emails to CDC, NIH and WHO with no help. Would you please address this issue?
The swelling still lays in the muscle on my left side back, it looks and feels swollen from the top of my left side back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the middle of my back, it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hurt</span>s, burns <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch. The unusal pain has moved to my left breast and my breathing is alittle difficult when i lay down. Also at like 4 am this day, something popped in my left breast and woke me up from my sleep it hurt really bad afterwards like, the pain women get when their breast are tender dued to a following menstrual cycle.
Happy Easter everyone! I haven't posted in a while. Some of you may remember me from a week or so ago. I was on a 13 year, 20 a day 10/500 Lortab & 3 a day 20mg oxy habit due to chronic back/knee pain. (Degenerative Joint Disease or Bone on Bone in knees and low back. Anyway...I planned to stop cold turkey and detox out of my home 11 days ago. I sent my 13 yr old to my moms and bought the Thomas recipe and prayed. Thanks to God and this site, I did not touch anything for 7 days.
Within the past 2 years my right leg has started swelling excessively (i can't wear jeans anymore), my left knee gets sharp pains and has little bumps on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cap</span>. Certain spots on my body hurt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch, like i'm bruised but there's nothing there; even my skin hurts to even run my fingers along it (my legs in particular). Now my hands ache to the point i can't hardly use a can opener anymore (i'm a chef by profession! holding my knife is almost impossible!).
The pain is awkward…it is oftentimes hard <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> describe…and it doesn’t respond <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uchyou can <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cap</span> all day long and it won’t hurt. But it hurts to walk, it hurts on stairs, it hurts lying with my leg straightened, it hurts to sit too long, it hurts behind my knee, and it hurts inside. it JUST hurtS!! I elevate, I don’t; I rest it, and I don’t. I use heat, I use cold…I use both. I use whatever even helps a little.
