Pain in knee joint when walking

Common Questions and Answers about Pain in knee joint when walking


987762 tn?1331031553 Multiple sclerosis does not affect the joints directly, like other conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, lupus or fibromyalgia, which can cause the degeneration of the cartilage or inflammation in the joints. However, joint pain is very common in people with MS, specifically in the knees and hips. This pain is usually caused by people walking with an uneven gait (manner of walking).
Avatar f tn I was told that the cartiledge wore out in both knees and I'm in pain when I walk. I can hear crunching when I walk up and down the stairs. I wonder if there is an excercise I can do so I can prolong surgery. I love to walk but by the time I get back I'm in agony. Does anyone know of an excercise that would help?
Avatar n tn When I kneel on my right knee I feel an extremely sharp pain inside of my knee, almost as if I have a piece of glass jabbing me. I do experience some discomfort while walking or sitting and especially while running. I do have flat feet and I also experience pain in my hips, What could be wrong?
Avatar f tn Hi there :) have flare-up of osteoarthritis in knee after being diagnosed formally when I had an arthroscopy a few months ago. Just wondered how long pain and subsequently being out of action may last for? Any thoughts or ideas would be helpful. Thank you so much.
Avatar n tn A torn cartilage in the knee or a loose piece of bone or cartilage in the joint can do this. Once a joint is stuck in this way, it may need to be wiggled around to unlock it. This may also cause a pop.Finally, joints that are arthritic may crack and grind. These noises usually occur each time the joint is moved. This noise is due to the roughness of the joint surface due to loss of the smooth cartilage.
Avatar n tn Hi! Pain on kneeling with a burning sensation afterword is commonly seen in the inflammation of the bursa of the knee called bursitis. A bursa is a small sac of fluid. It cushions the outside of knee joint so that tendons and ligaments glide smoothly over the joint. Bursitis is often treated with rest, elevation, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). If this does not help then fluid is aspirated out. Another option is corticosteroid injections.
Avatar m tn Often the person feels a popping sensation on moving the joint. Pain worsens on walking. It can also be tendinitis due to inflammation of tendon at the knee joint. You will need X-rays and MRIs of the knee to find the exact. Treatment will follow correct diagnosis. Do consult your orthopedic specialist at the earliest. Meanwhile do not bear weight on that leg, give it rest, apply ice pack, and take an anti-inflammatory pain killer. Take care!
694979 tn?1232316978 i get headaches, my joints have started getting really stiff in the last 6+ months which also only makes the pain worse. i have pain in every joint except my jaw but i have NO inflammation or swelling. my joints have started popping every time i move; big loud pops. bright lights and loud noises bother me, i have ringing in my ears. i have problems remembering and concentrating.
Avatar n tn Pt has pain while walking but it is bearable. Most severe pain is when off weight bearing and interfers with sleep. Any treatment options aside from more meds???
Avatar m tn I am 16 months post op for tkr, I experience occasional pain when weight is placed on joint as in walking. Pain is on inside of knee right at joint. Went back to Dr. x-rays okay, alignment perfect, range of motion is fantastic. I can ride a bike with no problem. But when placing full weight on knee, I have pain on inside of knee. I am considering seeing another ortho. Any suggestions? Could this be from ligament rubbing on replacement?

Avatar f tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! The location of the knee pain can be a useful guide. Pain in the front portion of the knee can be caused by bursitis (inflammation of the lining of the joint, possible due to injury while playing), arthritis, or injury to the patella cartilage (front portion of the knee). Pain on either sides of the knee is usually related to meniscal tears, injuries to the collateral ligaments, and even to arthritis.
Avatar n tn I am tired all the time with lots of joint pain especially in my fingers.
Avatar m tn The pain seems to be deep inside the knee and a general knee ache (very painful ache tho), not a tagetted pain in one small spot. Could this be artheritis? I worry a little about that because I do have clicky hands which sometimes "click/snap" loudly when doing things and sometimes the snaps can be painful in my hands/wrists. But I am only 28 and slim.
1961313 tn?1326293964 I have problems with my knees,just general stiffness-but one day I had to get down on my right knee and the pain was extreme,it wasn't necessarily in the knee but to the right side of the knee,it felt like the skin was splitting into,I look and the skin looked fine,so I don't know if it's the tendon or the muscle what ever it is,is very painful,in fact I can't get down on my knees any longer
Avatar f tn Ligament injury causes pain to worsen on walking, bending and stretching the knee. Meniscii too if torn or injured, result in joint instability—that is you are not confident the knee joint will take your weight. Often the person feels a popping sensation on moving the joint. It can also be tendinitis due to inflammation of tendon at the knee joint. All these (ligament and meniscal injury and tendonitis) can cause referred pain to calf.
Avatar f tn If i am walking for more than 10-15minutes, i begin to get an aching pain with in my knee behind my patella. This pain leads to the feeling of something being placed within my joint like a wooden block that restricts me from straightening my leg. As i straighten my knee i can feel the lump deep inside the joint. Along with this i have begun to experience strange episodes of my joint swelling, numbing, stinging and going extremely red and hot.
Avatar f tn Stopped running due to sharp pain on the inside below my knee. Started walking instead. Now 5 years later knee pain again. Went to an Ortho for exam and xrays. Nothing showed. The Dr wanted to do a MRI but my schedule did not allow at the time. Now 2 months later the pain begins if I walk a few blocks. The pain seems to be all around the joint and builds the longer I walk. Yesterday after a short walk the pain was enough to make me sit down.
Avatar f tn I had a lot of pain in my right knee , well it isnt actually in the knee. It is below the knee on the inside on my leg possibly 1 inch from my knee joint. It hurts horribly bad when I put pressure on it. I am getting to where I can hardly walk. I think I did it when pulling myself from water on a boat ladder. It fills like someone is sticking a hot knife in there when I walk. I am walking funny to compensate and it is making the left leg hurt to. What could this be at this spot?
Avatar n tn Are you a professional player or playing at amateur level? When was the injury and was there any bleeding from knee joint? The most common cause of knee swelling is arthritis. Post-traumatic injury to meniscus or ligaments also can cause knee swelling. Have you apprised the treating doctor about this swelling? What he has to say about this? Has any imaging study is been done? I think you need to visit the surgeon again and ask for imaging study for your knee swelling.
Avatar m tn My right knee is the worst. It always has a dull pain in it. almost like its constantly being blown up like a balloon. slow and steady but filling up. 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.
Avatar f tn The pain will come with walking, sometimes very quickly and sometimes not much at all. When the pain comes, I have a swelling on the outside of the knee joint about the size of half a golf ball. When I rest the swelling and pain go away within 10 or 20 minutes. This doesn't sound like arthritis to me. A two-fold question, would these symptoms be consistent with AO? Or do these symptoms sound more like damage to the meniscus? Also...
Avatar n tn I have had it for about 3 days and its not the normal muscle pain. Its right below my knee, my knee's pops when I straighten it out. When I stand up or put pressure on them they hurt and get a pinching (like a slight electrical joult), Taking Tylenol for now. Does this pain last long and what can I do to take care of it? FYI: Im unemployed, layed off, and cant afford insurance....home remedy.
Avatar m tn Well needless to say the shin pain in my knee Isn't as bad as it used to be. Now when I'm on the go, I get severe pain in the knee joint area, that stretches from the top of my knee cap and extends down the outside of my knee, it feels like someone kicked me in the back of the leg, and my knee doesn't want to swing/move.
Avatar n tn So this second injury only made matters worse. The burning, when the knee is bent, like when your sitting in a chair burns so bad my eyes starts to tear. I think you got the idea. Please tell me what the injury is and what is injured within the knee up towards thigh but Not that far up. Please advise.
Avatar n tn Most pain is across the top of the knee cap and along the interior side of my knee. The pain is present while walking, climbing stairs and when I first stand after sitting for a long period of time. Additionally, if I stand for too long, my knee is extremely sore and stiff. The worst pain is that which wakes my in the middle of the night at least 1-2 times per week.
Avatar f tn I was told that I have patella feminel pain, I am use to having trouble kneeling and walking after a shift at work and and my knee being weak and the knee cap moving around, but lately even when I am not doing anything it feels as though something is push up on my knee cap, and extremely painful and I cant get the pain to go away. At time it feels as though something is being wedged under my knee cap. I just don't know how to make the pain go away and it is getting worse every time it happens.
Avatar n tn Briefly, a joint effusion means that there is more fluid in our joint then exists in normal joints. When a joint is affected by arthritis especially rheumatoid arthritis (RA), increased abnormal amounts of fluid can build up. usually the knee will appear swollen but this depends on the amount of fluid in your knee. The fluid is produced by the inflamed tissues that are affected by the arthritis and that line the joint. Usually a physician can drain off the fluid and your pain will improve.
