Common Questions and Answers about Common knee problems injury


387767 tn?1345875627 Knee pain has many causes, including pathologic processes in the knee and disorders in distant locations with referral to the knee area. Can you tell me when this pain is more? Do you experience any grinding, locking, catching, or giving way of the knee? When did your pain begin, what were you doing at the time, and what were the initial symptoms?
Avatar f tn The pain and discomfort is annoying but not life altering. Unless this injury could cause problems as I get older I would prefer to avoid going to the doctor thanks to the rise in healthcare costs.
Avatar f tn ) I have had problems with my right knee since I was in middle school. I don't think that I had MS then.
Avatar m tn Oilfield female who sustained a lumbar strain and have had pain in L buttocks down outside of keg to my knee, sometimes to my ankle, and sometimes down back of thigh. Once in a while I have pain radiating around my left hip, along with lumber pain and stiffness. I cannot bend over at the waist and get back up on my own. I had an MRI with report which says this: L3-L4: minor dorsal ligament redundancy and facet afthropathy. Normal disc, no central canal or for animal stenosis.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm a very active person, volleyball, biking, hiking, running, weight lifting, etc. Never had knee problems. Recently, my right knee, when in the same position for a couple of minutes, straight or bent, kinda becomes stuck. It is very painful to bend if straight or straighten if bent. It wakes me up at night. I sleep with my knee bent and it wakes me when I move at all. It is excruciating pain to straighten it. But, once I'm up, I have no pain whatsoever. I walk a lot at work.
Avatar f tn The pain is below the knee cap on the left and right side and ontop of the knee cap on the right side and on the inside of the knee from above the knee to below the knee. For the last week and a half I've been getting sharp pains on the right inside of the knee and above the knee while walking or turning from right to left. When this happens the pain is so bad that I can hardly walk. I've also been getting needle type pain below the knee cap in the center.
Avatar n tn 42, very active. Never had any knee issues. Been hiking and mountain biking quite a bit lately, probably more than normal if I have to be honest. Still, no issues during those activities. However, last weekend I noticed my left knee started clicking when I walked. I could hear it inside and first thought it was my back or hip. Finally found it was my knee. I can make it click by extending and contracting it. Walking normally does it every time.

Avatar m tn Hello! Most common symptoms of runner’s knee are: Knee pain below the kneecap. If you have pain beneath or on the sides of the kneecap crepitus (grinding noise), as the rough cartilage rubs against cartilage when the knee is flexed may be due to runner’s knee. I would suggest you to take pain killers, as in NSAIDS for few days. I would suggest you to continue strengthening your quadriceps by walking, jogging, cardio etc but after a break and after the pain decreases.
Avatar m tn When the bone's healed, make sure she has good physiotherapy as well - poor rehab is shockingly common and can cause all sorts of problems down the line.
Avatar m tn Someone told me that it is fairly common after a knee injury to experience fallen arches but I can find nothing on the web.
Avatar m tn meniscal tears, ligament injuries can all lead to severe pain and swelling in the knee joint. They all are common after an injury. I will advise you to discuss it with your orthopaedician and get yourself reevaluated. You will need a thorough check up and investigations like X-ray knee joint and ankle joint. Treatment will depend on the specific cause. Do keep us posted. Take care and regards!
Avatar f tn I have had knee problems for years; I have now had 4 surgeries on my left knee, including a partial replacement in 1/11. About 2 months ago, my knee started swelling without injury. My orthopedist was hesitant to remove the fluid because of the risk of infection, but felt he had to after the 3rd time it swelled, and the joint was full of blood. I had arthroscopic surgery last week, in which they burned off synovial tissue, hoping that was causing the problem.
Avatar n tn At first the pain was only when I walked up and down stairs and had to put all my weight on one knee but now I can hardly extend my knee without getting sharp pains on the inside of the knee. Also, not sure if this is relevant, but there is a painless bruise on the middle of my knee right below my knee cap and I have no idea where it came from. Any ideas?
Avatar m tn RIGHT KNEE PROBLEMS:- I have undergone ACL reconstruction surgery of right knee on 21st May,2010. Even after my surgery I feel pain when I bend my knee or when I walk. The pain is distributed over the entire crossection of the knee. But recently on 12th feb,2012 my right knee has started paining again. I am not able to walk. Even if I try to walk, I feel instability. My leg becomes stiff when I keep it straight for around 30 min.
Avatar n tn Hi, One of the most common problems involving the knee joint is an anterior cruciate ligament tear. The anterior cruciate ligament is the primary restraint to forward motion of the shin bone (tibia). Thus, ACL prevents the tibia from sliding too far forward and also contributes stability to other movements at the joint including the angulation, rotation at the knee joint.
Avatar f tn The only hope I have is my sister-in-law is a massage therapist and is working on the scar tissue, she thinks the scar tissue is causing a lot of my problems. I am having very sharp pain shooting through my knee and the doctor doesn't know what is causing the pain.
Avatar f tn Yes it can be related to tibia and fibula injury as the nerve supply is common between knee joint, ankle joint and hip joint. If your knee cap was popping it could be due ligament injury. I think there is nothing about hereditary, it could have happened any ways. I think you should be seeking an orthopaedician again and get investigations done. You should be doing an X-rays, including AP, lateral, and sunrise views, should be obtained. MRI may be ordered to delineate the injury.
Avatar f tn im 14 and ever since i fell about a year ago i began having real bad knee pain it started in my right knee, it was relly bad & i couldnt walk w/o crutches and a knee brace for about a week. then the pain went away for a while about 4 1/2 months and now its come back but this time on my left knee. i dont know if this has anything to do with my injury, it also could be my weight even though it shouldnt because im not too overweight just average.
Avatar f tn I have never had surgery on the knee, I have had no injury to the knee. I exercise moderately and am not considered overweight--well at least for a 53 year old man--but I was riding a stationary bike more frequently (4-5 x per week) and at a higher resistance level for a few month before this pain. If anyone knows what this is, any contribution to this thread would be appreciated.
634733 tn?1316629592 January 15th mri on knees Today – I saw the ortho for follow up – only very minor problems with the knees, a small tear in the cartilage in the right knee, a bit of pre-arthritis in the left knee and definite arthritis in the right knee. When I describe how my legs felt, he shrugged his shoulders and said that the degree of disability I described did not relate to the damage he was actually seeing in the knees and that I should talk to my neuro again.
Avatar f tn I just want to know if this is serious, and if it's necessary to see my doctor right away. I know some knee problems are hard to diagnose, and I don't want to waste time with test after test to just have people tell me they can't find anything. Anyone with a similar problem or have any insight?
1733156 tn?1310301457 It can take a very long time for you to be able to recover from your surgery. Unfortunately, that's just one of the problems with any type of knee or hip surgery. Please keep us informed on what you find out from your Doctor. If they don't suggest it, ask for an x-ray to be sure that there is nothing new going on with your knee. Again, I'm so very saddened that this has happened to you and especially all of the increased pain and side-effects that you are having from your surgery!!
Avatar n tn If any one of these structures are injured or damaged, then the person lands up in knee problems. As you have posted that everything in there was torn apart as informed by your surgeon, it seems that you have not only injured menisci but other ligaments also. With this history, arthritis would not be first entity to be considered. The badly traumatized knee has to be rehabilitated and this requires you to start physiotherapy.
370181 tn?1428180348 I have never been diagnosed. I had a knee injury about 6 years ago and had a torn meniscus and had it repaired. At that time the surgeon said I had no cartilage but to not have surgery until I could not put it off. After several bad falls I went to another surgeon and he said I had to have both knees replaced. I did and when I went back for a follow up because one was hurting more then the other and very very crunchy sounding.
Avatar f tn Hello, If the pain is above the knee cap the most common reason might be due to injury to quadriceps muscle or tendon involvement. As you did not have any injury but as you exercise regularly I still would like to suggest you to rule out ligament or tendon injuries by an MRI of the knee. Systemic diseases can give rise to knee problems without injuries like Rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatic fever, septic arthritis etc.
Avatar f tn What kinds of cognitive problems do you feel were attirbited to Lyrica? When I read anothers post, I wondered if that were happening to me, until I realize how much stress I have been under lately. Sigh and smile,,,, I guess I will have to see how much I improve once I sweep the stress out of the door...
Avatar n tn Sensations included intense burning, and a swollen/huge scab-like feeling inside my knee. Despite common sense, I did not go to the doctor because I hoped that the standard rule would apply: time heals most wounds. I limped around for a few days, but could put some weight on it. After about 5 days swelling had greatly receeded and pain greatly decreased. However, it has been about 9 days now. Swelling is about 1/2 what it was, but still present.
Avatar f tn For the exception of the shoulder, and lipomas and the surgical procedure to confirm endometriosis we share alot in common. I had severe problems with my utures and finally was dx'd with uterine prolapse. And after 4 kids thats to be expected to some degree. Mine just decided to fall out a little further than usual. I finally had to have a hysterectomy in July-'08. On 3-27-1997 I had a slip and fall injury at work. I injured my lower back, left hip, and broke my tail bone. 1.
