Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain ultrasound

pain

I have a pain in the back of my right knee. 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.
The problem is occationally when something rubs against my knee the pain 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?
The rhuemetologist wasn't sure why his knee was swelling. He did an ultrasound 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.
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 pain doesn't take up all of the right part of my knee, its just a thread shape pain that seems to extend from the femur down to the fibula.
Hi I did my knee in hockey. symptoms are cant bend or walk. minimal swelling just pain 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.
I have had bone scans, aspirations, white cell scans, biopsy, osteophyte removal, steroid injections, Tens and ultrasound. The prosthesis is stable and there is no infection but the pain 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.
5 years i've felt a constant burning (sometimes stabbing) pain which is mainly behind my knee cap, and at the top of the knee cap (where the thigh meets the knee), 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.

Just a quickie here, but I suspect that you are have radicular nerve pain and not knee pain, though you feel it at the knee. 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.
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 knee to pop and IT band to snap at times and cause pain 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.
Unfortunately martial arts studies increases my knee pain 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.
You don't have any of these symptoms which signify you are not having advanced stage of disease. You don't have hip pain or knee pain 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.
I had total knee replacement surgery 10 weeks ago and am still experiencing significant knee pain, consisting of stiffness and alot of pain in the knee. The pain 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.
If there is a painful lump under the incision it can be an abscess or a clot. Also, since you have leg pain, you should get an ultrasound of the lump and dopplar studies of the leg blood vessels to rule out clots. Hope this helps. Take care!

I had arthroscopic ankle surgery 2 days ago, day 1 post op noted swelling and severe pain in knee of same.
The ultrasound found some gallstones. My left leg has been having pain right on the knee area. Just want my life back.
Standing up/stretching causes great pain. At times, shooting pain in front of lower leg and down sides of foot. Had Ultrasound yesterday...no 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!
is it normal to have foot pain after knee surgery? my husband is having pain 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.
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 knee. I've had an x-ray and an ultrasound. 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.
I take no medications. I have been having a slight pain (more like a burning) in the crease of my right knee 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.
Aching pain at and below the patella. Difficulty straightening the knee. Pain is most servere when putting weight or pressure on it. Pain 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.
They are painful to touch at times as well. Pain clinic sent me to a rheumatologist who did an ultrasound 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.
His knee-cap is in 2 pieces, a smaller one on the outer part of the knee-cap and the main knee-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.
It appears I am not the only one experiencing pain in the knee. I had surgery on my right knee 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.
I have constant knee pain, swelling and my knee gives away. The pain 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?
My symptoms seem pretty standard with thyroid issues, fatigue, memory, dry skin, trouble sleeping and mood swings, however I went to the doc with pain below my breast bone, my third visit in a year span for this complaint the last was when she ordered the ultrasound.
Hello, From the symptoms it looks like the pain is radiating in the scrotum and leg. It can be due to injury, infection (Epididymitis or Orchitis) or inflammation, testicular torsion -- most common in young men between 10 and 20 years old, excessive bicycle riding, hernia or kidney or ureteric stones. The final diagnosis can only be made after a thorough physical examination including examination of the abdomen, scrotum, testicles and rectum.
They may take you up for ultrasound of the knee. Usually this will be treated with knee braces, rest, physiotherapy and corticosteroid injections. Surgical repair may be advised for a few. Another possibility is a mis-aligned rod putting pressure on the knee while walking. Please consult your doctor regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!

There is quite a lot of ultrasound and I have bought a home device which I am using to alleviate pain around my knee while I wait for athroscopy for my torn meniscal cartilage! It seems to help. I just bought an Intrasound device. Any experiences of such devices? I'm building information here - http://www.mediawiki.healthwealthandmusic.co.uk/index.
