My knee cap clicks

Common Questions and Answers about My knee cap clicks

knee

Hello, I've just started having pain on the outside of my right knee I was playing boo with my son when I first felt a sharp pain, over the week each time I kneel down I feel a hard throbbing pain, when rubbed it throbs and also when bent, when the leg is straight it's fine! My knee clicks now and again and when I feel the knee cap it feels like it's grinding, does anyone have any ideas what this could be, my partner seems to think it could be my cartilage!
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.
then back in 2009 i was flipped over some ones back hard and feel on the same knee and put two holes in my pants and they match the two scars on my knee. it swelled bad couldnt bend it for about two months it looked nasty didnt have medical so didnt go to docs again. what could it be...
It's been 3 weeks and my knee feels pretty bad. My knee clicks/pops from flexion to extension every time. Pain is posterior,lateral, and medial along joint line. My knee has locked walking down flights of stairs at school, and I have incredible pain when trying to stand after kneeling in the back of my knee. I have knee pain in general as well since I'm standing at work all day. I plan on going back to the docs this week.

upon leaving they gave me a foam knee brace and sent me on my way. When I got home and tried on the knee brace I found out it was way to large (XXL) to the point of it being almost comical (I'm 130 lbs., maybe if I was a NFL running back it would fit.
Since starting classes again I have been having a lot of trouble with my knee. There is heat coming from it. It gets swollen, and red by the end of the day. At first it didn't hurt at all, it was just swollen. However; the last few weeks it has started to hurt, and I've gotten lightheaded a few times. Also there is this popping sound that happens if I rest it for awhile, then try to get up. My knee also itches to every now and then.

I have had both knees done, and glad I'm this end of it, but like others I have clunking. My right knee swells and feels like it is pulling away from my knee cap. Now if I walk too far, and 'm only talking half a kilometre, I am in agony. My muscles at the back of my thighs feel like lead weights. The tightness doesn't seem to be improving. I am doing all the excercises including bike. I am going to try physio, although my surgeon thought I was doing so well I shouldn't need it.
For about a month and half now, I have been dealing with nasty knee pain in the area around my knee cap. I have a chronic pain condition called Complex Regional Pain Condition (CRPS) which I developed when I was 12 years old (I am now 14) in my left leg and both arms. I am currently undergoing Physiotherapy to try and correct Dystonia in my left leg - my leg is rotated out to the side in eversion.
A common cause of knee pain together with joint popping may be seen in patellofemoral pain syndrome, or runner's knee. It is a kind of overuse injury in which the cartilage on the back of the knee cap becomes roughened and clicks as it glides over the bone underneath. Do seek the opinion of an orthopededician for correct diagnosis and treatment. Do keep me posted. Best of luck and regards!
its been like this for about two+ years. My knee clicks at time.. when i wake up in the morning its feels like there is water trapped around my knee cap and swollen alittle. then about 45 mins after i get up the water and swellening goes down. im on a water pill and have been for a while. back in 2003 i fell really hard on it and broke the floor wood didnt go to the doc dumb on my part.
Iv been house bound for two weeks in pain, i had a week and a half of nerve pain in patches all over my body like drills on raw nerves then that passed by uping my lyrica and rest i guess i did one school run and i was back in bed ill with awfull rib pain on my right and left side and pain over my kidney area i lose control twice of my bowels what joy!!
After I would finally get it pushed back into place, the pain would go away, but my whole neck would be sore up to my ear and through my jaw. It felt bruised, but no visible bruising on the outside. Over the next couple of years, this problem continued to get worse, happening weekly with some minor "slippage" on a daily basis. Throughout my life, I have talked to various family practice doctors about this problem.
