Hello, the last few months, ive had pain above my knee cap, if i press on the muscle or tendor that seems to attach to the top of the knee cap, it is quite sore right where it connects to the knee cap, and when walking its ok, but stairs it really is sore, sitting down and getting up, kneeling. Ive tried applying heat to it, then stretching, then applying ice going for walks, stretching, seems to give temporary releif.

I am a 46 year old Male. For the past several months, I have been experiencing a pain that feels as if it is generated on the tip of the bone of my right elbow, just off center of the very tip of the bone when the elbow is bent. It is continous and increases if pressure is placed on the "spot" where it hurts. In addition, I have a simular pain on the knee cap of the right leg, only occationally, most prevelent when applying pressure while climbing stairs or walking up hill.
Is this possible with my condition or have I partially dislocated my knee cap? Its been two days now and it hurts, but not all the time. I have noticed that when it does start to really hurt, I will feel some popping from my knee cap even though I haven't moved an inch. Is this okay?
It is located around my knee caps and more often then not I feel more pain under my knee cap which is a sharp pain. My knees are both always swollen and hurt. Is there a reason for this? My doc told me to get ankle weights and do leg raises and that hurts even more than walking. Every year I go for my yearly physical when he bends twists and moves my right knee it has a popping sound like when people crack their fingers almost but it hurts. What can I do? I am desperate.
My Left knee still hurts today. I got up and it was sore, started moving around and it was ok, only occasionally when I would step down differently it would hurt. As the day went on the knee got swollen and started to hurt more and more. The pain started on the inside of the knee just under the knee cap, but by the end of the day it had spread throughout the entire knee. I could not find a comfortable posisiton to sit in and when I walked it hurt pretty bad as well, between a 8-9.
I have a hard boney bump on the outer side of my left knee cap. I only started to notice the bump after I've increased my running miles. The bump has only recently started to give me pain while I'm active. It is not painful to touch, but it hurts really bad when I climb stairs or bend my knee. What could be the problem?
But I am hoping to get some insight of what may be wrong. I have had problems with my knee for quite sometime. It seems to be getting worse. I keep have what feels like something is pinching on the one side of me knee. It hurts to a point to where it makes it difficult for me to walk. I can take a day or so and stay off my leg and only get up when needed. That does not seem to help. I have used cold packs and taken soaks in a tub of warm water. Nothing seems to work.

I am 15, in a soccer game my knee collided with another girl's knee and since then I have had intense pain around the knee cap. Its hurts a moderate, bearable amount when walking around but when standing up from sitting or kneeling or when I bend the knee I feel sharp intense pain around the knee cap. Does anyone have any idea of whether this is a serious injury and if so what it could be or if should I not worry?
Lately I have noticed my right knee seems to be slightly swollen and it sol get worse n feel stiff when the weather is damp, and if I move my leg a certain way or lock up that knee it just doesn't feel right like my knee cap is moving where it shouldn't be going (I don't really know how to explain it properly but that it feels like its being pushed back further than what it should and this has been happening a couple times a day) I don't know if this is something to be concerned about or not or

I have a hard (boney) bruised lump on the upper right part of my knee cap. It hurts to touch it and put pressure on it when I am walking. It is also swelled (kind of feels like there is fluid in it). I also feel grinding at the top of my knee when I move it and there it pops on the left side. Almost two weeks ago I fell and skinned the same knee pretty badly. The part that got skinned is healing nicely but I don't know what this lump is. Any ideas on what this could be?
About three days ago I started having severe pain in my knee. In the last day it has localized to a particular spot left of my knee cap and down towards the bottom of my knee cap. It is very painful to bend it very far at all, which makes walking very painful, and it also hurts to bear weight on it. If it twists in any way very sharp pain shoots through it. I used to be a walker, but have not been a regular exercisor for some time.
When i do most activities like walking up and downstairs, lunges, and even walking sometimes i get a sharp pain as if im sticking a thick nail into the center of my knee cap down into my knee. It hurts to the point that i have to stop and stretch it out constantly. it is always swollen pops alot of times when im walking i can feel a bubble forming and i have to stop and kick like im kicking a soccer ball and it pops loudly and hurts for a second but then feels better.
He said my knee problem was common in teen girls. He said the cartilage on the back of my knee cap was soft. They pop all the time and have began to just give out within the last year. The giving out has gotten worse lately. What is this called? How should I be treating it since he's not?
I also massage my knee and move my knee cap around in tiny circles to unpinch nerves.
The swelling seems to never go away and walking up stairs is painful. The pain seems to be located under my knee cap. I don't know if it has to do with the calcium that I was told was building up or I am just getting old and it's arthritis. It is also painful to sit with my legs bent. I plan on making an appointment with a local orthopedic soon. I was just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this.
my Ortho told me that i had arthritis behind my knee cap, he shot my knee with cortizone, after two day i felt like knew but after two months, i started to feel the knee pain again, i went to see the doc again, he recommended another shot, i agreed, he tried to give me the shot without any anesthetic, so when the needle went in, by impulse i pull my knee back, and ever since then, i cannot bend my knee, i cannot kneel down, it hurts constantly, its an undescribable pain, worst than ever before.
It became swollen and bruised, but the bruising is going away, but there is still swelling from the lower part of my knee cap to the top of my shin. I don't have trouble walking or any movement. The only time it hurts is when i have to bend down on my knee and it touches the floor or if anything touches the knee. It sends a sharp pain through my whole leg that I just cant stand. I haven't put ice or heat on it since the accident happened. What should I do?
I seem to have injured my right knee. It hurts mainly when I extend it straight out or bend it to my chest. I can walk, go up and down stairs and put weight on it without too much difficulty (except when it is bent). There is no discernible swelling. What have I injured? I avoid exercises that hurt, but I still do brisk walking on the treadmill. What about strength training? Should I use a heating pad on my knee? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
