Common Questions and Answers about Knee joint ache

knee

Hi, I have torn my ACL years ago but having a very muscular leg I was suggested to leave as it was and indeed I didn't have any troubles until recently when my knee has given way again (I do martial arts). After a while my knee has developed a persistent dull ache and I had an MRI to check on meniscus: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1.
For me, the joint and back aches and pains are pretty much always there, but moreso the three days after shot night. Old knee and joint injuries see to send reminders. For all ache/pains, including frequent-constant headaches, I switch between aspirin and tylenol. But trying to keep both at a minimum. I think I stretch out a little more, and more frequently, on tx just to keep from getting stuck in one position.
I am 56 yrs. old and since last summer I have been waking up in the morning with joint pain. My elbow joints, hip, and knee joints are all painful. And I have this tired weak feeling so it takes me awhile to get out of bed. The meds I am taking are : Nexium 40mg. twice a day, Amlodipine Bensylate 5mg. once a day, Trilipix 135mg. once a day and Ibuprofen 600mg. when needed. Pravastatin Sodium 40mg. once a day and Alprazolam 1mg. twice a day.

Aside losing weight, I would recommend seeing a physiotherapist for exercises that would help strengthen the muscles around the knee joint, since it t would be very difficult to explain these online. Also the exercises would need to be graded as suggested by a physiotherapist. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
If I leave my knee bent too long It starts to ache. then I try to straighten it out it hurts a bit then I feel and hear a pop. Then the pain and ache goes away. What could this be?
Always use a cold ice pack for your knee as it helps with pain and inflammation. Arthritis is not the only problem with chronic knee pain. Knee joint is a complex joint with tendons, ligaments bursae etc. It can be some systemic disease which needs diagnosis. Recollect if you had any injuries to the knee like, a fall, a twist etc. After a proper examination near an orthopedician you can diagnose your knee problem.
The pain seems to be deep inside the knee and a general knee ache (very painful ache tho), not a tagetted pain in one small spot. Could this be artheritis? I worry a little about that because I do have clicky hands which sometimes "click/snap" loudly when doing things and sometimes the snaps can be painful in my hands/wrists. But I am only 28 and slim.
The knee is a complex joint. There are numerous conditions including structural issues that effect the knee. Your pain could be from arthritis or a patella problem. Some imagining will probably be required to determine the source of your pain. I am sorry I cannot be more specific. If you offer more information we may be able to provide you with additional information. Can you describe the pain? Is it always a burning? Does it ache also? What makes it better?

Hello, I have constant joint and bone pain - a dull ache. The pain is throughout my body but especially worse in the shoulders, ankles, knees, neck, and BACK. It is worse in the morning when I wake-up ~ I spend 15 to 30 minutes every morning stretching in order to try and relieve some of the pain. I'm a 30 year old female with no health issues. My father was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis a few years ago. I do not experience any joint swelling or redness/warmth to the joints.
I still have pain in my knees sometimes and my legs ache whenever I have a fever have started medication and things are better. I went from no muscle tone to muscle tone strength so I think it is all at a cellular level. Proteins??? Anyway my suggestion is read a lot about hypothyroid. Get on a good high protein diet and if you need meds take them. I feel so much better after starting them. good luck!
We are leaving for vacation tomorrow and I am hoping that I'm able to keep up with the family despite my knee aches and constant tired feeling. Any help or insight you can provide would really be appreciated. I would consider going to my GP but I doubt that I could get in on such short notice before we leave for vacation tomorrow afternoon. What could this be?
I can pin-point exactly where the pain is (it moves around the knee and elbow joint) just by touching it. I can also feel a constant throbbing pain without even touching my knees or elbows. I have not been responsive to icing it, physical therapy, several anti-inflammatory medications, a cortisone shot, prescription pain medication, and fibromyalgia medication. I have never experienced any sort of swelling nor do I feel stiff in my joints.
Arthritis or inflammation of joint that moves from joint to joint (migratory) can be due to Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, rheumatic fever, SLE, HIV, Lyme’s disease, sarcoidosis, Whipple’s disease, Henoch-Schnlein Purpura, bacterial endocarditis and gonoccoccal arthritis. Hashimotos thyroidits is another possibility. It can also be fibromyalgia and or chronic fatigue syndrome. Since it started with great toe it can also be gout. At times an infection can trigger reactive arthritis.
All my side effects have gone away now, except for the knee joint pain; the knee joint pain did go away and then came back with a little less severity. When I was on treatment, I used Bengay on my knees at night; that helped. Since I've been off treatment, when the knees bother me at all, I take one aspirin at bed time. The aspirin is ok for me to take now that I'm done with treatment. Tylenol didn't seem to help my knees at all when I was on treatment.
I have been having joint pain, severe in my leg side of body, arm and leg, and then both sides of my wrists, fingers, and ankles. It's now in my right knee as well. I have had just an overall ache in my legs and left arm. (I did have a total shoulder make over on my left side, Jan 2012 due to a trauma in 2008. I had a bicep tendonesis, SLAP, and a clavicular resection of half my acromium.
Hi! If it is the hip or the knee joint and the problems started after the fall, then yes, you could have suffered a ligament tear. It can also be a bursitis. Both can cause the joint to swell up on and off and can cause the joint to lock up. Only MRI can diagnose this. If this is not possible then consult a physiotherapist for exercises to help relieve pressure on the joint. If you have low back ache then the pain can also be due to a pinched nerve in lower back.

my father has a total knee replacement on 29.8.2012 he is in his late 70's, and doing really well. He does his exercises twice a day without fail, walks when the weather is fine. The only problems that he has is his ankles are really sore and ache. The one that he's most concerned about is his calf muscle is extremely tight. Is there anything he could do to free up the stiffness.
Hey Jen, Now I have lupus and fibromyalgia and I'm still learning how both affect the body. Years before the "big blow-out of symptoms", I had knee and finger joint pain. When everything escalated (one day) it seemed every joint in my body was hurting. Toes, feet, ankles, knees, hips, fingers, elbows, shoulders, neck and upper back. It was not a dull ache either. With both lupus and fibro the symptoms seem to wax and wane - as the drs. put it.
It cushions the outside of knee joint so that tendons and ligaments glide smoothly over the joint), meniscus injury or due to dislocation of patella. The pain can be severe enough to be felt throughout the leg or make it impossible to straighten the leg. Please consult an orthopedic specialist ASAP. Until then do not put weight on the concerned leg. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
1) is it better to take it at night or in the morning? 2) can i expect joint pain within 24 hours, because my knee has almost immobilised me today? i am scared that if the effects are kicking in so soon that it might not be a good idea to continue with this. 3) and depression...is that very common, because i feel absolutely **** today and not sure if its just the day or the medication beginning to talk? 4) when can you expect the side effects to kick in? thanks guys.
I think, since I'm so hypermobile and have such lax joints, that made the joint even LESS stable. It's like my ligaments/tendons are too loose to hold my joints together. I feel like I'm literally falling apart... I'm in constant pain, stabbing, burning, grinding. Sometimes it feels like someone stuck a knife in between my joints and won't take it out. At this very moment, I feel like I want to rip my head off and set it back on the way it’s supposed to be!
The complexity of the design of the knee joint and the fact that it is an active weight-bearing joint are factors in making the knee one of the most commonly injured joints. It's not necessarily arthritis; you're 23, you're young. I'm sure you do activities such as sports. This can result in a pulled muscle.
At the end of radiation, I sprained my knee walking across the street. I have two autoimmune diseases which could contribute to joint pain and/or connective tissue issues--Primary Biliary Cirrhosis and Sjogren's Syndrome. It has been two weeks since my knee injury and I am still unable to walk without pain. Muscles in both legs ache and my shoulders, elbows, and fingers are sore upon waking in the morning.
On days when its really bad, I can't lift my leg under its own power. When I sit down and elevate my leg the pain is just a dull ache, but my knee starts to hurt. The pain in my knee feels like something squeezing very hard only from the inside out. The two things definitely feel related though. Does anyone have any ideas?
