Common Questions and Answers about Knee joint clicking

knee

Still, no issues during those activities. However, last weekend I noticed my left knee started clicking when I walked. I could hear it inside and first thought it was my back or hip. Finally found it was my knee. I can make it click by extending and contracting it. Walking normally does it every time. Going up and down steps does not (since it's a different range of motion). No pain in any case. Full range of motion...

Hi all, I came upon this forum and got similar symptoms too- leg clicking whenever i bend my knee back n forth and feel the rupture of the bone goin on inside that gives off discomfort. Also whenever i exercise, like running,swimming the right knee gets more sore than the other as well. The doc says its a acl tear but the mri scan shows it to be fine,suspect its loose ligaments and previous falls i had to have weak knee.
I have this clicking or may I say popping sound when ever I put weight of my left knee, or even if I am laying in bed when I straighten out my leg, it seems to make this sound. It really doesn't hurt, just a little uncomfortable. If I place my hand on my knee and swing my leg forward a bit, I can actually feel the bones rubbing and clicking against each other.
I have noticed a strange thing after TX that some time when i bend my knee, a clicking sound came from knee joint (i used to have that sound before TX but that was very rare, now its became more frequent).Moreover some time that sound also came from shoulder joint. It seems that the fluid to reduce friction in my joints has reduced or become thinner. I want to ask if this happen because of Tx (Interferone/Riba) or anything else? has anyone experianced the same feeling or not????
- the problem should occur in 16-40 year olds mostly and usually in the twenties or thirties - it should get progressively more difficult to click as more calcification/ossifcation occurs over time (timeline of years) - a point should be reached (timeline years) when no further clicking occurs as the joint cartilage is now fused Alternatively this could also be costochondritis - an inflammation of the costal margin, though it seems to go on too long for this I think (5 years in my case).
Hello, The various possibilities for popping, clicking joints are a cartilage tear or rotator cuff tear that is rubbing with the joint, arthrosis or degeneration of the joint and arthritis esp osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. The exact cause can be found out only after x-ray or blood tests. Please consult an orthopedician or rheumatologist for that.
I did have joint /muscles pain in the begining , however since laast 2 months my joint pain is lot specailly in my toes/heels , ankles and hands which is similar to what you describe . I am going to see rheumatologist. I am wondering ,is it common to see in Hypothyroid this kind of pain.
Whenever I walk up stairs my left knee makes a clicking noise and if I touch and feel my knee it feels like a grinding sensation inside my knee. I've been icing my knee after each game and the next few days following. It is uncomfortable to walk on it at times but not necessarily painful or impossible. I have started going to the gym again.
This April I woke up one morning and heard a clicking sound when I walked and then the knee become locked and made it impossible for me to walk. After X-rays they discovered that the screws at backed out and once again I underwent surgery where a different locking systems was installed. I again started recovering, but now when i am standing for any length of time the knee locks. It is very painful when this happens as well as debilitating.
After a few more weeks my left elbow became equally sore followed by my right knee joint. Then I started to notice that many other joints in my body were also clicking, e.g. neck, wrists, forearm, ankles rib cage and shoulders. About three weeks ago I visited my doctor to try and get to the bottom of it all. He consequently carried out a blood test.
(because I usually tend to injure my knee with the elastic knee supports more often than without it). 4) Would Yoga, magnet therapy or any kind of therapy help heal the knee joint? Thanks in anticipation...

Hello, The various possibilities for popping,crackling joints are a cartilage tear that is rubbing with the knee joint,arthrosis or degeneration of the joint and arthritis esp osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis(but they are associated with pain).More harmless is clicking of knee joint due to relatively lax joint capsule, that allows more than a usual amount of movement.
A few minutes ago, I laid on my left side and proceeded to bend my right knee and the clicking and popping was very audible and painful. I know that swelling and pain accompanies osteoarthritis, but the doctor said that it was mild and that I can continue to exercise (Cycling). It does not matter if I am standing, sitting, walking, or lying down, I am in pain constantly for the last week. I am wondering if I have re-injured my knee or is this how mild osteoarthritis feels?
Often times over the last 10 years when I kneel on my left knee the next day I get a pain on the insde front of my knee. In the joint area to the right of my left knee cap. To date anti inflammatories for a couple of days resolved the problem. The pain was never associated with piont tender spot nor any inflamation that I could detect. 4 weeks ago I was boating and had to kneel to fix an issue. I did not put anything soft under my knee and it has been irritated since.
I'm just wondering, has anyone had Rheumatoid Arthritis likepain, at 3 months post Tx, which eventually cleared up, hopefully? And also, does anyone here have advice for this kind of joint pain (I here popping and clicking in what-ever joint is in pain that day, and the sternum clavicle joint completely popped out last year, where it stays, a big bump, and pain in right arm.) It's as if my joints are now "lax"...maybe from muscle deteriation?
Hello! There are 3 pairs of ligaments in your knee joint and you might have injured your menisci or cruciate ligaments. Grade I ligament tears take time to heal and you have to wear a brace for 4-6 weeks and follow up with physiotherapy. For a proper diagnosis you have to consider MRI and also a proper clinical examination near an orthopedician for diagnosis and for a proper recovery. Take care!

My knee is stiff and painful today underneath the knee cap where the pes anserine tendon inserts and to the inside of the knee cap (medially). I also have pain in the middle of the back of the knee, is especially sharp if I push into it.

correction: the knee makes a "clicking" sound when I bend it. No pain, just a weird sound and feeling.
Front to back movement was very good, Pain developed on medial side of knee and the patella tendon when walking. When I move the knee or walk I can feel it 'clicking" and 'shooting" pain from the patella tendon The Doctor says that there is still some swelling in the knee. He has recommended synvisc treatments without ordering a new MRI. Will the synvisc reduce the pain and swelling? Is synvisc a curative or a temporary relief of symtoms? Are there any draw backs to synvisc?
I am concerned that if he doesn't get it treated, it could turn into something much worse. He says it is always throbbing and clicking. The pain is right on the knee cap, most of the time. He is continually icing and heating. He takes advil for the pain, to no avail. Should I insist that he go to the ER or is it something he can wait on, until he gets insurance? Please help!!! Thank you...
