Knee injury warm to touch

Common Questions and Answers about Knee injury warm to touch


Knee pain after injury can be due to a number of reasons, but localized tenderness with swelling can occur due to a hematoma or a collateral ligament injury. A ligament injury to the knee is usually painful at rest and may be swollen and warm. The pain is usually worsened by bending the knee, putting weight on the knee, or walking. Rest, immobilization, ice packs are the initial measures to be taken in any kind of knee injury.
If it were a simple bruise your knee should not be warm to touch. Is there any swelling in the area? It is difficult to determine just what sort of injury your knee sustained with out more information. The concerning factor is the warmth. I would apply ice to your knee and keep it immobilized until you are able to see a physician. I think this would be considered an Urgent Care issue and you should be seen asap. Please let us know how you are doing.
The patches are not visible except when really bad and then just a rosiness. They are warm to the touch. I get an outbreak several times a year. The only thing I have ever associated with an outbreak is eating too much sugar. I got on a candida kick for a while a they did calm down. (At that time I got them more often.) When I get them now I can usually look back and see a high sugar intake for a while. (I’m not diabetic or pre-diabetic and I have a moderate weight.
The place becomes tender to touch. You have to go for a gastroenterologist consultation to fix your problem. If it would have been a skin problem/allergy then you would have some physical signs and symtoms. Take care!
I have been to two doctors, had x-rays and have been examined. My knee is swollen, sore to move, and warm to touch. The doctors tell me to take IBU and ice it. I have been doing that for 9 days now and it hurts just as much as when I first did it. Who do I go to to request an MRI? I don't want to wait for another week or two if I have some damage done and my PCP won't look into it. By the sound of both of your injuries, mine is somewhat similar. Any advise??
It feels like I step on a warm spot for a few seconds but my foot isn't warm to the touch. I'm going to see my doctor about it. It may also be correlated with a neck/shoulder issue I've been having for a month. I'll try to remember to post any findings.
My knee is also swollen and warm to the touch. I have had three knee surgeries in the past for a torn medial meniscus (2004, 2007, 2008). I've been having the pain for a few weeks now and its getting worse and almost everyday now. I'm not sure if I should go to the hospital for the pain (I'm at a university and our health center is not open on weekends), wait until next week when the health center is open, or wait until I go back home in March to see my doctor.
I barely had to touch it, when that burning pain would shoot from my knee. I thought I was going to need to go the emergency room. Instead, I did what anyone who hates hospitals does. I thought I'd try one last attempt to heal myself, and went for a walk, instead. An hour later, things felt better. Not great, mind you, but not nearly as alarming. But while I was walking, I noticed one other symptom this time: my hips also hurt. And that's how I put two-and-two together.
The affected skin was exquisitely sensitive to touch and even the usual rubbing of his underclothes irritated the area. Seven years later in 1895, when Freud wrote up his self-observations for a German medical journal, the abnormal sensations were still present, but had migrated. At first, the area of disturbance had been more noticeable near the top of the thigh, but gradually the abnormal sensations moved downward to a palm- sized area a hand’s breadth above the side of his knee.
Now I am struggling with the decision of whether to get a knee replacement! Good luck to you and please keep touch so we can compare notes.
My surgery was done last November, but I am still experiencing a lot of pain from my knee to my hip. I need a cane to walk. I addition, my new hip leg is now 1 inch longer than my other, so I walk with a limp. My doctor seems to think it will all work itself out, but I am sceptical. Is it normal to experience this much pain 8 months after surgery?
The swelling and stiffness happens after this kind of surgery but they should have told you before and right after the surgery that if your knee swells and warm to the touch, to call them ASAP. Swelling with warmth to the touch means infection.. no only is that bad in a normal patient but you are pregnant and it can be very bad for the baby. If you haven't gotten it checked yet and you still having the swelling/hotness, go to the ER!

Kaur, thank you for your reply to my question. I have another question relating to the injury. During the second week of the injury, I became aware of the hematoma and started rubbing it vigorously to try to break down the tissue. Now, the hematoma has more or less subsided but there is discoloration under my eye and on the side of my cheek from rubbing. Will these eventually go away, or are these permanent? Also, exactly how prevalent is heterotopic ossification?
Allergic to titanium? I have had three knee replacements, one a cement/antibiotic one. I am in constant pain and my leg has red spots on the aria of the knee replacement and is always wormer then the other leg. Now I have developed a severe allergy in my sinus, with the tubes plug and water on one ear. No one can tell me what I am allergic to. I read many people having the idea of allergies to titanium and I have read that the medical community say it not possible.
But, I hate being dependant on people for anything and right now I have a back injury where I can't bend and my husband has to dress me and a toe infection so I'm stuck at home and so forth. It has been a tough couple of years for me being alone all day until my husband gets home. For a while I couldn't even walk outside to lift my foot up or even wash myself on the lower half. I say this because I've had problems with letting people help me as I have always been the strong one in the family.
Unfortunately, this results in the even greater ground forces being transmitted to the semi-flexed knee. While overall injury rates for skiing continue to drop, knee injuries, particularly to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are on the rise. Skiing is generally considered to be a sport with a high injury risk. Although, recent advances in design of equipment, as well as technique, has resulted in a drastic reduction of risk.
I'm so ADDICTED to picking that if I know I have a scab or something to be picked and I try not to touch it I feel like a nervous wreck, it's the same feeling I get when I need a cigarette ( I did quit those) or a pill. Addiction is addiction whether it's picking, binging, shooting up, or tipping the bottle back. As a 24 year old girl that's been through all of these things. It is all mentally and physically draining.
If you were able to not touch anything until next friday you will be able to at least fake the fact that you are ok. I was on Day 5 when my girlfriend came to town and a few times shed say i looked sad or something the first few days but i just kinda shrugged it off and tried my best to seem would be closer to a week by then and although everyone is different i think you will be fine..its gonna be a long week though, you need to be prepared for that..
I figured he would say he wanted to make a plan to wean me off the meds once the pain was under control or something to that effect. If I am honest with myself, I know I am not ready to get off of them now, but I figured I would get off of them at some point. Now I know I can get off of them on my own, but there is a little part of me that was kinda happy he said what he did. It gives me an excuse to stay on the meds for a long time.
bruised my leg right in the back of the knee (don't know how I did) and it hurts to touch it and i get pains during the night. Is it a blood clot?
Anxiety,stress etc can also cause increased sensitivity to light,sound,touch etc Its true that some people may be allergic to fluorescent lights,but we have to consider that millions of people all around the world uses this technology one way or another like display in computer,tv,mobile phones etc & most people are comfortable with it,so when such a sensitivity problem arise we have to look into eye problems,psychological problems like severe anxiety,stress etc etc not just blaming upon te
I went from being a hard working husband / father of 3 young kids who had just gotten back to work 1 year prior to my injury. I had been out of work for 9 months after bulging a disc in my lumbar spine. The Dr treating me said that There was so much degeneration in my spine that had not known he was looking at the films of a 35 yr old man he would think he was "looking at the spine of a 90 yr.old lumberjack" I went back to work as a hosp.
The muscle is completely bulged with my leg straightened and is proving very painful to walk on and is also painful at rest too with a warm feeling in it but not to the touch. I'd always pointed this out to them but it was pretty much ignored by the consultant. The physio said it maybe the tendon but left it at that. Im also assuming the mri scan didn't scan this area maybe?
I am able to do almost anything without worrying about the pain I will feel tomorrow. The dr was happy to give me the patch and I am happy to have it. What is this doing to me physically...he even remarked that my dosage would be upped as my tolerance needed it. I expect to be on medically supervised narcotic pain relievers for the rest of my life.
I walk several miles/day, plus work out most days and I need to move more????? Talk about adding insult to injury!!!!!! Fortunately, I have appt with new Endo at the end of Jan.
People are allergic to 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?
Hi Emil, The knee injury that you had originally was trying to tell you that you should stop doing what hurts. Running, doing deep knee bends with additional weight, using the stair machine set to higher than 8 inches can overflex the knee and put pressure on the patella. Nature was warning you to stop the activity and you continued through the pain. Surgery may have been needed to reattach a ligament, but the continued use of the causative exercise risks further damage.
I tend to drag my toes now and then. I had to touch the walls in the hallway to walk, going upstairs was diffcult, etc. I felt like I walked like Franenstein and my husband jokingly told me that I sometimes looked drunk. I went back to my doctor who did the neuro exam. My right foot reflex was bad (Babinski's?) and right leg was a bit stronger than normal. I failed the "walking the line" test badly.
