Knee injury and swelling

Common Questions and Answers about Knee injury and swelling


Avatar f tn The work was done over a week ago. Since Friday I have had very bad pain in my knees. Tried Advil and ice packs. No swelling. I have had problems with my knees and my back previously. What do you think just old age I am 63.
Avatar n tn A sudden knee swelling does not appear overnight. This is usually the result of an injury. Those with broad pelvis, flat foot and knock knee many a times twist their knee without realizing. Fluid either blood or synovial secretion accumulates and builds up during the day. If X-rays were normal, get a MRI done. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn Sept 5 I landed on my knee while skating with my kids. Swelling occured immediately and the bruise is now hear. The pain seemed to go away but recently has return like someone is stabbing my knee in 2 places with a needle. Could I possibly have chipped a bone and that is what I am feeling now?

Avatar f tn But, I got permanent swelling from last 3 weeks and pain also. Pain is in my lower and upper part of knee. I tried cooling and hot cycle belt of wrap but still pain exists.

Avatar f tn I had knee surgery about a month ago but I just noticed swelling in my knee,leg and foot what can i do to keep the swelling down?
Avatar f tn How long ago was your car accident and what type of back injury did you sustain? It is difficult to associate your current symptoms to the prior injury without additional information. Swelling of the leg and foot can be related to peripheral vascular disease as well as other systemic conditions. Have you been to the doctor regarding these symptoms? Further diagnostic testing may be indicated. Post again with additional info and an update and we will try and assist you further.
Avatar m tn About two months ago I was play fighting with a friend when I my knee twisted and it I injured my knee, I was drunk at the time and cant remember the incident very well, but the next day by knee was very swollen and sore. I went to the doctors and they said they swelling would go down and it would heal in about 4 weeks, about 6 weeks later it was just as bad if not worse, I went to the doctors again and they booked me to see a physiotherapist, but the appointment is not for two months.
Avatar m tn about 2 and half months back i kinda overstretched my knee during stretching exercises, i felt excruciating pain later, i went to a doctor and he gave me pain killers for 3 weeks, saying its probably not a tear but swelling,will subside with time, since then, it remains, i try to jog and stretch with same condition. at times , it increases and at times, it doesnt. at times, when knee turns at an angle, it gives a giving away feeling, with pain, wonder what should i do?
Avatar n tn You may experience a loud, painful pop when the ligament is first injured, followed by swelling of the knee. The pain and swelling of an ACL injury can last for several weeks. Short-term treatment can relieve the pain and inflammation, but it takes months for an ACL injury to heal completely. Initial treatment for an ACL injury aims to reduce pain and swelling in the knee, regain normal joint movement and strengthen the muscles around the knee.
Avatar n tn Seering pain shoots through my knee joint and down the sides of my knee. Have I dislocated my knee? Or is it something like a severe strain?
Avatar f tn I took anti-inflamatory medicines prescribed by doctor and kept the knee straight till 3 weeks and started applying ice pack(on 2nd week), also worn knee brace for entire 3rd week. i also avoided putting weight on my left leg till 3rd week. After 3 weeks, doctor again examined my knee and said that there is not ACL tear. And have asked to walk slowly (putting 50% weight) and do exercise regularly. I feel ok while walking.
Avatar n tn There is also been consistent pain and very slight swelling the entire time between attacks. If left alone during the attacks the swelling and pain would die down by itself after about a week. It has been drained 3 times and each time the fluid has been tested and found nothing. Each time it swells it is seemingly random with no injury and with no intense workout or vigorous activity the day or two before.
Avatar m tn My face, neck, arm and knee are swollen and have been so for about 1-2 years. I had my eyes tested and right eye is far worse with a stigmatism, that apparently on 10% of normal people have. Rhemy told me I had fibromyalgia, my Dr. disagrees because it's only on my right side but he has no answers at this time. Thanks for any help I can get.

Avatar n tn Hello all. I was playing football Sunday and although I didn't experience any injury while playing, I felt tightness later that night. I always stretch before and after. The next morning when I woke up I noticed some clicking behind my knee right above my calf. It's right in the center. Now a few days later, I'm feeling a lot of calf numbness and tingling. It's been tough falling asleep because of this. I've had previous problems with this leg before...
182884 tn?1259312906 and was told I will be given options when I see him.( whatever they may be...) My questions is this; Since my ACL knee injury is older, perhaps a year or more, is the recovery period any more difficult or longer than someone who just injured their knee, if the procedure is the same for repair? Also being older, 56, how does my age figure into the recovery ? Does my age prevent repair in any way? What is your opinion or any suggestions?
11446628 tn?1418298480 I also have pain in my knee and hands, and my fingers are twisting and have knots. My right knee has had pain and swelling for weeks, and this morning it's too painful to walk. I haven't injured it. Recent blood test didn't report rheumatoid arthritis. So what's going on with my knee, and with my hands?
Avatar f tn Pains on inside of knee and under knee cap front, a slightly diff pain behind the knee and random sharp shooting pains on top of knee. Any suggestions as to what could be wrong? I can wiggle toes but not lift heel at all. Sorry for essay and thank you.
Avatar n tn i suffer severly with low hip/joint pain,my left leg started of swelling in my ankle,now the swelling is in my knee area and upper thigh,is it related to the sacroliac joint or i also have an l5/s1 disc bulge,cant aford to go to doctor please help?
546214 tn?1214454140 Cold therapy can help control pain and swelling. Application of ice to the knee for 15 to 20 minutes every two to four hours is helpful. When icing the knee, it is important to raise the knee higher than the level of the heart, using pillows for comfort. Acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) is often effective at relieving pain. NSAIDs (Advil, Motrin, others) are effective for relieving pain and inflammation. ref:http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar n tn If I do I get a sharp, burning, stinging pain that quickly subsides once off the knee. 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 f tn I few days ago I forgot how to use my legs, and it has left me with some major pain and swelling in my left knee. I went to slide into a base and my knee went completely the wrong way. I didn’t have any of the stereotypical initial knee injury symptoms such as a “pop” or even really major pain until about 20 minutes after the injury. It’s been over 4 days, and while it’s improved, I still can’t do much of anything at all. I can bear weight, but any twists of the knee is an absolute no no.
Avatar n tn I hurt my knee playing in the floor w/my 2-year old grandson 6 weeks ago. I was crawling & my leg went to the side but it didn't hurt badly. My joints over extended somewhat. The pain & swelling is on the inside of the knee, cannot bear my weight. I self-treated for a while (brace, heat, ibuprofin, worked in a restaurant (bar tending, waitress) and the pain got worse as time passed. I have been to the doctor, had an MRI which revealed swelling & bruising next to the bone.
