Knee pain ultrasound

Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain ultrasound


Avatar n tn I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in the back of my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e. I can sit for about 5 or 10 min and when I get up I feel like I am going to fall. When I lay in bed it aches. Its just the back of my right knee and I can feel that it is swollen. Can anyone help me with this pain. I have tried icy hot cream and bengay hot towels.
Avatar f tn The problem is occationally when something rubs against my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> is intense! It feels like I have a really bad scrape there. I can rub and touch my knee but it does not hurt then. I can't imagine what is going on!!! It is so strange to have something that hurts so bad with no other signs. My husband thinks I might have chipped a small piece of bone off one of the bones and it will hurt until the body gets rid of the chip. Any ideas?
Avatar f tn I tested it and took some medicine and I can put more weight on it but I can't fully extend my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e. The sweeping and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> is in the back on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e. Every morning I usually extend my knees and crack them but now I can't to the hurt one everytime I try to extend it it feels like too much pressure and it's gonna snap. What should I do?
Avatar f tn The rhuemetologist wasn't sure why his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e was swelling. He did an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ultrasound</span> and drew off some more fluid and gave him another cortizone shot. The first doctor drew the fluid from under his knee and the second drew it from his knee cap. It has been several weeks now and his pain is back he still has a little swelling but now both his knees hurt. He wears a brace on both his knees now. He has trouble getting up if he has to get down on the ground for something.
Avatar f tn the pain is at the right side of my right knee, its situated near the fibula, not indicating that my bone is the one hurting, the pain is distinctive as it only hurts in a manner or form of a thread, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> doesn't take up all of the right part of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e, its just a thread shape <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> that seems to extend from the femur down to the fibula.
Avatar n tn Hi I did my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e in hockey. symptoms are cant bend or walk. minimal swelling just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> medially. Like MCL maybe. went to emergency care and had xray. no bone damage. have had RICE and ultrasound daily and anti infl tabs but still the same. Help. Is the the MCL and what can I do to speed up healing so I can walk. It has been 8 days now. And I wear a brace on it. it does not lock.
Avatar m tn I have had bone scans, aspirations, white cell scans, biopsy, osteophyte removal, steroid injections, Tens and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ultrasound</span>. The prosthesis is stable and there is no infection but the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> continues. Walking causes soft tissue swelling, joint effusion and increasing pain; I walk slowly and carefully with the aid of a stick. Only non-use gives me relief. Two months ago, I had to completely stop my quads exercises as they exacerbated the pain.
Avatar m tn 5 years i've felt a constant burning (sometimes stabbing) pain which is mainly behind my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e cap, and at the top of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e cap (where the thigh meets the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e), it also clicks and somedays feels very stiff. this pain fluctuates every day, and some days it will feel almost fine, some days i will be in agony, both of which sometimes stick around for months. excercise is STILL extremely difficult due to pain levels and my knee sometimes locking up.

Avatar f tn Hello and Welcome, I don't know your age - but I assume you are under 18. I am very sorry to hear about your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> as well as the fact that you feel your pain is not being taken seriously. I encourage you first to try talking with a parent again. Sometimes parents (I'm one) tend to dismiss our children's concern for various reasons. Approach the parent you are most comfortable talking with about your painful knee. Reiterate how you feel and your concerns.
390645 tn?1233372037 With pain meds majority of the pain has gone but I'm still left with this dull ache in my heel region which now I have the whole <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> when I apply pressure (eg) walking.. Hurts behind the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e and when I walk feels as though it's going to give way.! Feels better when I try to stretch it out just doesn't go though. Going back to see my G.P shortly.! Have you been diagnosed and if so what was it?
Avatar n tn Just a quickie here, but I suspect that you are have radicular nerve <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> and not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>, though you feel it at the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e. The axiom in medicine is that back pain is often felt at (refers to) the hip and hip pain refers to the knee. Since at night you feel the pain all the way to the back, I'll bet that is the source of your pain - that it's neuropathic pain and coming from a structural problem in the back.
Avatar n tn I am just wondering how long it could take for a quad muscle to heal from a direct blow but with no bruising and if the weakness in the VMO muscle could cause my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e to pop and IT band to snap at times and cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my pes anserine bursa. I did see a orthopedic who said he is not sure. X-rays were negative but I have a high deductable insurance so I am trying not to get an MRI.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately martial arts studies increases my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> which has become more or less constant. Climbing stairs and bending/crouching is extremely painful, and my knees grind (you can see and feel the grinding) and pop/lock constantly. I've seen my general practitioner who thinks it is patellofemoral syndrome. Physical therapy did not help and I have a stomach disorder that makes taking NSAIDs very difficult.
Avatar f tn You don't have any of these symptoms which signify you are not having advanced stage of disease. You don't have hip <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> that rules out any nerve involvement. I think it might be due to result of a collateral ligament or meniscus problem (or both) until proven otherwise. I recommend you to see an orthopaedician at earliest and get imaging studies done for further evaluation. X-rays study including AP weight-bearing, AP in 45° extension, lateral, and sunrise views.
Avatar f tn I had total knee replacement surgery 10 weeks ago and am still experiencing significant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>, consisting of stiffness and alot of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> wakes me up at night. I am going to Physical Therapy 3 times a week and I still do alot of therapy myself at home. I walk, and try to go about my daily routine, but the pain is still there,, some days worse than others. I also had a three disc fusion done in January,, 2007.
Avatar n tn If there is a painful lump under the incision it can be an abscess or a clot. Also, since you have leg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>, you should get an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ultrasound</span> of the lump and dopplar studies of the leg blood vessels to rule out clots. Hope this helps. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
Avatar f tn I had arthroscopic ankle surgery 2 days ago, day 1 post op noted swelling and severe pain in knee of same.
Avatar f tn The ultrasound found some gallstones. My left leg has been having pain right on the knee area. Just want my life back.
Avatar f tn Standing up/stretching causes great <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. At times, shooting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in front of lower leg and down sides of foot. Had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ultrasound</span> blockages, no cyst, no clot. inflammation of tissues/unknown origin. This has been going on for a month now. Doctor gave me Celebrex-antianflamatory, leg exercises to stretch and recommended wrap around cold compresses. Your post was a year ago....I hope you are not still suffering-let me know. I'm counting on being normal soon!
Avatar n tn is it normal to have foot <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> after <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e surgery? my husband is having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> especially when stnding up and left leg/knee is hanging. its just the 4th day after the surgery. we have been following the instructions, iced and elevation.
Avatar m tn I take no medications. I have been having a slight <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> (more like a burning) in the crease of my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e for the past 4-5 days. It increases & decreases in severity but is more a nuisance than debilitating. Yesterday the pain/burning was on & off in my right calf too. I didn't make much of it since I have a tendency to sit on my foot while working & prefer my right foot over my left. So my knee is often compressed for hours and I figured I had pinched a nerve.
Avatar m tn Two days later it felt like a nail hammering into my knee, then finally when I tried to kneel a few days later (again forgetting the problem because the only time pain was felt was when I knelt) I felt a rip inside my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e. I've had an x-ray and an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ultrasound</span>. Bursitis has been ruled out so I saw my 'back guy' who is a 'manipulative therapist' - or in basic terms, he's an 'old style' masseur. He believes the problem is that my ITB tightened somehow.
Avatar n tn Aching pain at and below the patella. Difficulty straightening the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> is most servere when putting weight or pressure on it. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> can be felt when climbing up the stairs, jumping, running and standing for prolonged periods. In addition, pain can be felt behind the knee cap. I've had blows to the front and side of the knees before when playing soccer. The Orthopaedic diagnosed me with having Patella Tendonosis. However, I'm seriously starting to doubt the diagnosis.
Avatar f tn They are painful to touch at times as well. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> clinic sent me to a rheumatologist who did an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ultrasound</span> to see if there were any blockages (none) and then just told me to wear the compression stockings and keep off my feet as much as possible...well, I'm only 48 and I have 2 younger children (8 and 10) so it's a bit hard at times. I'm just wondering if anyone else has the problems I've noted.
Avatar f tn His <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e-cap is in 2 pieces, a smaller one on the outer part of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e-cap and the main <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e-cap. What worked for you? They are suggesting a complete cast from hip to heel for 6 weeks to "settle" it down. Then, surgery to remove the smaller separate bone if this doesn't help the pain. I'd love to hear your stories. Thank you in advance.
Avatar n tn It appears I am not the only one experiencing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e. I had surgery on my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e on March 19th (Athroscopic surgery). In addition, the OS found my knee bone extremely deteriorating from arthritis and had to cut down the bone. I was told I would be up and about in in 48-72 hours. I was suffering so bad from pain, I was unable to return to work for 2 weeks and when I did, i still wasn't doing very good.
Avatar m tn I have constant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>, swelling and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kne</span>e gives away. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> is primarily on the inner side of the knee. I have had several kneesurgeries, one in the last 6months that was supposed to fix all these issues. I have been told its just arthritis, however after surgery i was told no signs of arhritis. a physical therapist told me i have a loose mcl. what to do?
774810 tn?1242258299 My symptoms seem pretty standard with thyroid issues, fatigue, memory, dry skin, trouble sleeping and mood swings, however I went to the doc with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> below my breast bone, my third visit in a year span for this complaint the last was when she ordered the ultrasound.
