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 m tn 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 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 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 n tn Improper seat position is a common cause of patella problems. Be sure that your far leg is almost fully extended, about 5 degrees bent at the knee. Icing after riding can also be helpful. In addition, the use of a patella stabilizing brace for riding may be useful. If the pain persists, see an orthopedist.
Avatar f tn You can have knee injuries which might be mild Grade I during the car crash and it might have progressed to Grade II or Grade III with dancing, weight bearing, physical activity this can be a reason for chronic ligament problems in knee joint. Try conservative treatment initially and if it fails you can go for arthroscopic surgery. Take care!
Avatar n tn 7 yrs ago i had an accident which resulted in a muscle crush injury to the back of the knee. I still have many problems with it after all these years. In cold, damp weather it aches and becomes swollen, retains water so becomes puffy and i find myself tripping over more as my leg feels wooden at times. Is there anything that can be done to ease this and why am i still having these problems after 7years.
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 m tn The pain occurs directly behind her left knee, and sometimes on the front left side of the knee. I can easily feel a pop in the front left side of the knee when her leg is extended. When she went to physical therapy, the physical therapist pressed on her knee several times in different locations and also extended and contracted her leg to see if there was any pain, but she felt no pain. Her physical therapist said that her mechanics are off.
701160 tn?1228413523 Pre-patella bursitis or "housemaid's knee" is quite common in laborers who work on their knees such as carpet installers or tile men. It is also common in wrestlers, as you've already found out. This ailment is an irritation of the bursa in front of the kneecap (patella) and results in a collection of fluid within the bursa, and thickening of the bursal tissue itself. These are often treated with ice and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication.
Avatar f tn Stiffness is a sign of inflammation, which is common after both injury and surgery, as well as with inflammatory disease like arthritis. Talk to your doctor about this stiffness. He / she will offer some options to help.
Avatar m tn Nearly two years ago my 21 year old boyfriend began to experience severe knee pain. There was no previous injury to the knee to cause the pain. He has since seen every specialist you can think off and they are all stumped. He has had many blood test ans scans done with nothing showing up that can explain the amount of pain. He says that his pain is centered at the middle of is knee ( the point that you would come to if you drilled from the top of the knee and the side of the knee).
Avatar f tn Sound like osteoarthritis (OA) which most often occurs in people over 45, but some younger people get it from a joint injury. Do you have any previous injury involving your knee? A torn cartilage, for example, can precipitate the process of OA. Weight also plays an important role. Do you experience a creaking or cracking feeling within the joint? In the meantime, bracing, splinting, and other orthotic treatments may be useful in “unloading” an arthritic joint surface. Take care!
1378884 tn?1315505845 Prednisone can make you feel better whether you have RA or OA. It's a general purpose inflammation reducer used in a wide variety of diseases. It can be injected directly into a joint to ease pain and swelling, given in an intramuscular injection or taken orally to quiet an overall RA flare-up, inhaled to help asthma and COPD patients breathe better, and more. My mom takes injections in her lower back to temporarily ease pain.
Avatar f tn I’m looking for a good compression knee sleeve to see if it will help me continue to workout. Has anyone here tried a compression knee sleeve by Grip Power Pads? It looks great online, but I just wanted some advice before I make a purchase. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Your docs know a lot more than I do, but hip problems can be labrum tears or bursitis or both, or a periformis injury, almost everyone gets lower back problems at some point, and the knee could be torn connective tissue. You would seem to be too young for arthritis, but who knows? By the way, 45 is really young -- the bad stuff hits you later than that unless you're a serious athlete, in which case it hits you all the time.
Avatar n tn In most reports it is found that arthritis occurs after injury to the knee. My Doctor says the Bakers Cyst is on the side of the Knee. Having the knee injury in 2003, there was no prior problems, No Arthritis. MRI and x-rays’ caused the Reading Doctor to assume there was some damage. The Knee stayed swollen for 7 years. After 3 years the readings were indicating Arthritis. Now in 2011 it is minimal cartilage, and have been disabled.
Avatar n tn I can walk and run on it fine, and have not experienced any swelling or other problems. I cannot feel any abnormalities on the outside. The pain is on top of the knee. Even pushing on a certain area it is is sensitive. What do you think?

Avatar m tn Hello to all. I know aches and pains are common sx during treatment but over the last week I've had 2 very pronounced and aggravating pains from my past suddenly show up. One is my right knee aching constantly and I injured this knee over 25 years ago and haven't experienced any pain since then until now. The second feels like a pinched nerve and neck pain extending down through my left shoulder and arm. This also is something I experienced many years ago and worked out of it.
