32 yr old swollen knee,pain,feel pressure,did not injure it or fall, came on all of a sudden
Hi Red bumps that are swollen and painful may be boils. Pain and redness associate with an acute infection. This sounds like an infectious skin condition to me and a boil is primarily in my differential. If this enlarges rapidly ,I suggest that you have this promptly assessed by an internist. You may need to have this drained. The discharge may be cultured to determine the organism and also to guide treatment. You may also need oral antibiotics for this.
Last summer my knee was swollen for no reason. I hadn't hurt it, i had played any sport recently, and i hadn't done anything that could've hurt it. I went to the Emergency room and got X-rays done and they tested fluids in my knee and still nothing. They couldn't find why. They sent me to an Orthopedic and Then they performed an MRI and perscribed Anti-Inflamatories (Naproxen) and pain relievers.
Fever is not necessarily co-incident with many low-grade infections. So infection is unlikely, but not ruled out. Culture of the fluid extracted would be a good first step. An x-ray is a good idea, but an MRI of the knee is better. I would also ask for an MRI of the foot. And I would not necessarily head for the conclusion that a total knee replacement is necessary. I am concerned about the constellation of symptoms, particuliarly the pain in the ankles and forefoot.
5-100 also have bad sharp pains in low right side went to doc he did blood work(came back normal slighly elevated segs and low mono) said it was fine so now 5 weeks later my thigh above knee is extremely swollen I have a low grade fever that doesn't go down with advil and a feeling like I can't get a good breath short of breath I have to burp can't get it past vomit in chest(like heartburny stuff) its bad after I eat my whole body aches chills oh and at night I wake up with horrible leg cramps l
My son wakes up at night with his knee hurting. I have notices sometimes it is with the weather changes. But it looks kind of funny. Several trips to the dr and x-rays twice and blood work to see if anything is wrong. They did not find anything. It is off and on, only at night usually. I need help too...I am going Friday to see if we can go to a specialist. I want to make sure it is nothing serious!
So, try to be patient for a couple of days, HOWEVER, if you continue to notice a decline in your mobility or increase in pain levels, especially if you start running a fever or your knee is red, swollen and warm - IMMEDIATELY get in touch wtih your doctor or head to the ER. Any time you puncture the skin, there is chance of infection. I hope you feel better soon!
The back of my knee is not. No other pain! I just got over being sick for a few days, with a double ear infection. Had fever and body aches, but no ear pain. Doc put me on anitbiotics and I am fine now. I had slept on the couch alot due to the body aches in bed during that time. Has anyone else had something like this or have any ideas?
From day one of surgery I am suffering with burning pain down the front of my leg from my shin to my knee. I have been tested for a blood clot and was negative. The leg is very swollen at the end of the day and the pain wakes me up at night. The leg gives out without warning. Being that this was a work related injury I've been to two (2) doctors.
The next fever was 8 weeks later, very mild and manageable with Motrin and no seizure. Then nothing for 3 months. Then a mild fever, but after a visit with the chiropractor, the fever ended after 30 hours. And now we have been fever and seizure free for 5 months! My son is himself again. He only goes to see the chiropractor once a month just to check up and they never adjust him unless there is a need. He loves to visit "Dr. Dave" and we have been so encouraged!
It is really just just this fever and feeling like pretty much every injury I can remember just happenedalong with weird fluttering and stabbing pains in all these areas: broken T5 vertebrae, my horse ran my knee into an arena fence at full barrel racing speed, a barn door shut on my ankle and cut my Achilles tendon about 25% thru, various skiing and racecar accidents.....you get the idea! I think I have a pretty high pain threshold, but I can't take ALL these things hurting all at once!!
His knee remained swollen for a few days and was feeling better then took a turn for the worse. The last few days his knee became more painful and last night his foot became swollen as was his whole leg down from the knee to the toes. The knee has been hot to touch but not that red since it started. His foot looks swollen and reddish now also. He's also prone to gout having had a few gout attacks recently.
I telephone a ortho doc for a apt asap. Since a few days have past now my right knee cap is swollen like a melon as if I had knee surgery but no pain down the calf just cant bend or move it a slight pain in the back. Is this from putting weight on it do to the left knee? Or is all of this a serious Vascular problem. Who is the correct doctor and WHY or WHY is this happen and in both knees and swelling in the one leg right and of course the left calf which is always there. Who do I see?
Hello, my mom was allergic to the components in her knee replacements. She ended up having them removed and redoing the replacement with titanium so that all the symptons would go away hopefully. They did, not even an hour after the surgery her hives,redness,everything was gone.The doctors will tell you that your not allergic to the replacement. But, my mom was within an hour after surgery. red all over,fever. have an allergist do a skin and patch test for metals & cement.
I I went to a rheumatologist after the vascular surgeon and orthapedic specialist couldn't figure out what was wrong with my ankle, which was swollen and very painful. She diagnosed RA and prescribed methatraxate, to lower my immune system. Pow! After 4 months on that, my knee suddenly swelled to twice its size. In August I was diagnosed with gout which cleared up the ankle, but tested positive for Lymes. The arthritis is in both knees and wrists right now and I am pretty crippled up.
HSV-1 I think from the boyfriends fever blister. I started taking Valtrex at night took 2 (1 mg) tablets then the next morning took one. Went for a jog, bathed and then my anus started to swell. A hemarrhoid protusion occurred then the entire area swelled! The sides of the anus are swollen. It is huge: at least 1 inch by 1 1/2 inch Painful. I went to the gyno and she was shocked. Said she didn't see herpes there and gave me cortisone cream.
Hi Everyone, I've been experiencing swollen ankles, my left one more swollen than my right one, even if I don't stand for a long time. They're even swollen after being in bed all night. I'm athletic, fit and not overweight. I have two questions: 1) is the edema a sign that HCV is progressing? and 2) can liver ultrasounds reveal mild fibrosis? My stats: 53, female, geno 1 VL 11 million infected 25 years/blood transf & frequently symptomatic (fever, swollen glands, fatigue, weak, etc.
Last night, I woke up at about 3am with a swollen tongue. It really freaked me out. I took 2 Benadryls and thankfully it went down almost back to normal within a couple of hours. When it happened on my lip, it swelled to the size of a grape and the Benadryl took FOREVER to kick in. Anyway, I went to the doctor this morning and she said swelling like this (tongue, lips) is called angiodema.
The fevers occur about every four weeks and last three to four days. They start out as getting knee pain a few days before fever starts, then she complains her eyes hurt and head hurts. Her fevers get as high as 105 and she vomits at least once with each episode.We have been to an Infectious Diease Doctor when she was 2. He said he couldnt find any thing and she would grow out of it by kindrgarten and she has not. When she was five she had Pansiusitus surgery and Adnoids taken out.

Constipation, junk food, food and other allergies. They even say in recent years that an allergy can give you a slight fever. Anything is possible with all the pollution and weird food nowadays. Don't let doctors tell you that you are crazy!! It can be exacerbated by nervousness and stress, but it's not just nerves or all in your head. Good luck and good health to everyone!!
We ended up in the ER 6 hours later with severe pain and fever of 102. Now my husband has a swollen foot. what is the problem and what can I do to help him feel better and calm my nerves and be able to sleep. i feel like I have a new born and will wake up everytime he moves or makes a sound. I am so scared!!!
The pain was horrendous, and I started having sore throats and swollen lymph nodes. I began to have a daily fever back in October, it was always the same time, I could almost set my clock to it, with the fevers came the rash and the muscle pain. And then the arthritis became noticeable, swollen, hot joints, not being able to grasp this or do that. My husband quit sleeping in the same bed because of my night sweats, I find I have two fever spikes in a 24 hour period.
Sometimes it's caused by an infection. With the swelling and fever he should be seen by a vet soon. The doctor can determine what's causing the problem (perhaps a bite or puncture?) and treat it properly.
My Brusa sack on top of the knee cap is swollen again for me. However its swollen more towards the left of the knee rather then the center. About 3 years ago My bursa swelled up due to constant friction of the knee rubbing againts a wrestling gym mat. It was swollen and very irritable/stinging to the touch. The bursa eventually popped and I had to get my knee drained. Right now the Bursa just seems to be swollen.

Do hot fomentation and take rest. Avoid further exerting and strenuous exercises. Take care.
It is now Nov 2009 and I am still in the same situation. Knee swollen, WBC 30,000 in knee fluid, RBC 5200, Sed rate 39. C-reative Pro 1.0, no crystals, no culturesMy surgeon wants to remove the knee, put in a temp for 6 weeks, treat with heavy anit-biotics and put in new replacement even though he can't tell me what exactly he is treating. I don't know what to do.
The pain in the knee feels like I twisted or over extended the knee, which I have not done. These pains do not feel like the body pains I have had with the flu or anything other illness. 5)Since the start of September I have had constant allergy or sinus drainage down my throat and my throat is sore. On October 4th (23 days after incident), I went to the doctor and described my symptoms including all the pains. My doctor took some blood and ran some test including an HIV test.
So I started jogging for about two days. Immediately my hands and legs(above the knee) got swollen . I felt tightness in them. I realized that my stomach was swollen too. On June 30, 2008 I consulted a GP who put me through a blood test and stool test. The stool test result stated "No Ova or parasites seen". while the blood test thyroid function and general chemistry was normal. The doctor put me on Nexium tablets twice a day and most of the swelling subsided but not completely.
