Avatar n tn I have this knot the pretude out on my knee, it's not large but noticable. Rarely it hurts. A doctor said I was born with a bone disease that cause this but it's nothing to be concerned about...the name is long but I don't remember what it was called. Would you have an ideal what it may be?
Avatar n tn Yesterday while packing boxes and kneeling down, when I stood up there was a sharp pain on the interior side of my right knee. The pain did not go away and radiated in a more or less straight line. The line is up and down about 1/2" inch to the inside of my knee cap. I stopped packing and elevated the knee. No pain when at rest, no pain to put weight on. Slow movement no problem. Pain only when weight and bending. No bruising or noticeable swelling.
Avatar n tn She woke up yesterday with a Swollen bump under her knee cap that is the size of 1/2 her knee. The top of it has a spot on it that looks like she scrapped or burned it like a rug burn. Says when she presses on it, it burns/hurts. Hurts to bend but only because of the skin being pulled. Obviously I told her to go to the dr tomorrow to get checked out which she is. She has been iceing it.
Avatar m tn said it was cartlidge growing to my knee cap hurts like hell if i just put 1 pound of weight on my knee cap hurts if i touch one spot on knee cap don't hurt to walk run swim but just touch my kneecap to the ground and i'm down what is it with my knee i have no idea
Avatar n tn child with a small pebbles size bump under the skin on the knee cap area. It is firm, freely moveable, regular borders, and very tender to touch. When I say freely moveable I can actually move it all around her knee cap. I moved it down so far that it disappeared for a few seconds before it resurfaced. I thought it may be a piece of chipped bone but I believe it is to smooth for that. Her knee cap doesn't seem tender only the nodule.
Avatar f tn My knee is stiff and painful today underneath the knee cap where the pes anserine tendon inserts and to the inside of the knee cap (medially). I also have pain in the middle of the back of the knee, is especially sharp if I push into it. In terms of comfort and daily activities, I am having no trouble walking except that my knee will get a little swollen (very slight) and stiff if I walk a lot.
14412176 tn?1434410552 The pain was so bad at the moment i went home and rested my knee with a ice pack, and elevated. The next day there was still a big knot that made my knee look like a egg. Today is its 4th day and i am able to walk as little as possbile, and cuts and brusies are healing. I am also able to bend my leg up and down without too much pain. I hope maybe it is healing as I am still home doing the same remedy. It's still a bit swollen.
Avatar n tn hi, I have Enthesopathy of Knee and I was wondering if it is normal to have a Fleshy Knot under the knee cap? It don't hurt or anything but I was conerned about that and I was wondering also if it is normal for the knot to get bigger I went to the dr and they didn't seem to worried about it but I guess I am looking for a second opinion.
670987 tn?1284502386 First of all I have headaches everyday, now for about the last 5 hours or so, I've had a constant throbbing pain in my knee cap on my left leg. There is a bruised colored knot on the left side but that isn't where the pain is. The pain is around the bottom of the knee cap itself. I've tried a heating pad, ice, tylenol, etc. Not helping. I did have this with my son but after seeing a dr. the pain went away. What is causing this and what can I do?? It's very painful. Thanks!
Avatar n tn I have a large soft knot just below my knee cap. The strange thing is that it started in my left knee which is now fine and my right leg has new vericose veins and a lump below my knee cap. I went to the dr. he took xrays and he said it could be 1 of 3 things: hematoma, sist, or arthritis. Just wondering if there is any other concerns i should have since it began in one leg and has moved to the other.
Avatar f tn UPDATE ~ received X-today, but it's unlikely anything will show up. I feel it's soft tissue damage. At least she confirmed swelling, and the blood pooling in my ankle, though it's not as bad as the 1st week of injury. Next will be an MRI after results are sent to her. She gave me a script for Celebrex because I can't tolerate most NSAID's. Another question?? I have no back pain, could this possibly be sciatic nerve pain.
546214 tn?1214457740 Hi, I have a cysist, I believe.. it is on my leg right above my knee cap it started out a small bump and grew more and more now its about the size of a nickel and very hard with alot of heat expelling.. its very sore and very red do you think a hot cloth will help it and will it come out on its on soon? thank you for your time..
Avatar f tn Right below the knee cap I have a knot that is about the size of a walnut. It has always caused some discomfort but I have never really felt anything in the shin area. I was even able to be in the Marine Corps. I actually have more pain in my left knee caused from degenerative joint disease. I also get shin splints sometimes, even just from walking. They are very uncomfortable and tend to bother me from my knee down. If you are experiencing pain something is wrong.

Avatar f tn I also had a MRI on my left calf, no clot, no fluid, no growth and the muscle looks normal. Now i have a hard knot on my knee cap and my foot seams larger also. I sometimes have pain in my right hip, but am told it's not connected to the swelling. Also one of the veins on the inside of my right foot is popped out all the time now. Both my doctor and the Ortho don't know what's causing it.I have had no trauma to the area.
Avatar f tn I havr had the numbing in my left leg since week 13. But now my left leg knee cap up a little ways is swollen..burning but cool to touch.. nd hurts all the time. The burning gets so bad it knocks me to my knees. I startes feeling around both my legs in that general area..nd now theres a huge knot where its hurtin. I asked dr. when it first started he said uterus was sitting on a nerve but this was before it was constant painful nd swollen nd before the knot appeared. I have tried baths.
Avatar f tn The left knee had just an x-ray but again, just showed the expected arthritis. What I feel now and for the last month is extreme pain on both knee cap area - like crawling on broken glass - with great difficulty walking, bending the knees, and sometimes even while just sitting the pain just aches and sometimes stabs, with concurrent muscle cramping in the calves.
17282892 tn?1455260307 I did have a spot on my forearm today that was sore to the touch, and the front of my knees, near my knee cap one day felt sore if I pressed in on it. But that's gone now. I saw my GP today, and I think it's time for me to find a new doctor. He told me that there is "nothing wrong with me", and I believe him that there is nothing seriously wrong with me. And my anxiety is currently out of control with the obsessive thinking. It's killing my appetite etc.
147426 tn?1317269232 For me, I'm beginning to see that I get little muscle contractions just above the knee cap of my right leg, and that seems to confuse my knee considerably. If I'm outside and walking fairly vigorously, sometimes my knee seems unsteady, as if it's not sure what to do, and I wonder whether it will hold me up. This, despite the fact that my muscles are quite strong. So go figure. I think we might be in the same boat again. Maybe we should have a new restless leg thread.
Avatar f tn When I walk my knee feels like it is frozen and when I try to bend it it hurts also the muscle knot at the back of my knee feels like the back of my leg is being stretched. Was working out alot at the gym. I dread getting up in the morning because I know I am going to be stiff and sore can hardly walk first thing in the morning. Went to the doctor got some knee ex rays she thinks it is arthritus will know the results tomorrow.
Avatar n tn Numbness and burning and itchy. It started out the size of a quarter just above my knee cap during my last pregnancy. Docs said it would go away after I delivered because most likely a nerve was being pressed on...Needless to say it did not go away, and has only been progressivley getting worse. It now starts just above the knee cap and covers almost the whole upper thigh in numbness or anything on the back of my leg.
717272 tn?1277594380 I wonder if I'm ambitious enough to do the Martha Stewart - style knot garden with the perennials. That would be fun. If so, I'll post some pics when it gets going.
Avatar n tn It happens about 2x a day, lasts a few seconds and it has moved around my body. Started in the left wrist, went to the left knee, then ankle, and the over to the right knee. Now it's been happening behind my right thigh for about 2 weeks. Very strange.
Avatar f tn *My arm, leg, and ankle is free from pins and needles now. Of course, I still have the old knee injury, etc., that makes the side of my knee cap/leg area burn. * Horrible pins and needles in the right side of my head continues. Pain in the top of the head, on forehead, right ear and behind the right ear. Hearing is good at the moment. Sight is good at the moment. Sometimes I feel blanking out or loosing a second or two. Seem light headed when walking.
Avatar n tn No we can't call it off.We had our QB out with knee,our #1 running back out with the knee and our punter out with a knee. No way,we need the help.Have you noticed there are more injuries going on these days in college football.Somethings up with that. As for the wife thing,I told her and she is fine with it. Last night was the first time in awhile we acted like we were married.It was a good night.Hell I even got lucky.Now that was more info than I think you ask
Avatar f tn I fell in the dog park onto my knee about 2 weeks ago. My knee was swollen and sore for a day or two, then turned dark dark blues and reds and then the very next started to itch. My doctor friend said, "maybe your knee landed in poison ivy?"... haha. That's pretty much what it looked and felt like. (But, no, the dog park is all regular lawn grass.) The knee was still slightly swollen, like a pocket of fluid above the cap. Not too painful, really, and I could walk on it just fine.
Avatar f tn When I had a new cap put in many years ago, it threw my jaw out of alignment and I suffered with extreme pain across my head and felt extremely dizzy. With the salivary stones, has you been given any advice how to avoid these in the future? If there is any blockage in the Eustachian tube or from stones in your tonsils, no matter how small, as this will cause pressure and discomfort.
