Knee injury burning

Common Questions and Answers about Knee injury burning


Avatar f tn I can't get into the orthopedic doctor for 12 days. It is burning from the inside of my knee down into my calf, when I sit with knee bent. What can I do in the interim to alleviate this?
Avatar f tn a year and 1/2 ago I fell down some stairs and landed on cement causing a left knee injury, after a few weeks of physical therapy the swelling and general soreness was better but I had a burning feeling under my knee cap, clicking and grinding, the Dr told me it was normal.
Avatar n tn Hi! I'm sorry to hear about your knee. It sounds to me like either a ligament or possibly cartilage. Does it feel unstable or is it still giving out on you? Does it ache after sitting for long amounts of time? Is your pain off to the side of the knee or under your knee cap? These answers may help me know better.
7148253 tn?1388534921 Now I would notice that the symptoms are getting worse my knee is unstable like it is giving way every time I walk, there is pain on the outter/inner and back of my knee, I would hear a crunching/clicking/popping noise, I can feel a pop/snap/clicking, my knee is burning and I m limping everyday. I have went to a doctor he didn't said anything much except for giving me anti inflammatory and I have been to a physio for a month and got given a knee support.
Avatar m tn upon leaving they gave me a foam knee brace and sent me on my way. When I got home and tried on the knee brace I found out it was way to large (XXL) to the point of it being almost comical (I'm 130 lbs., maybe if I was a NFL running back it would fit.
Avatar n tn I'm 16, and about a month ago, I went from standing to sprinting very suddenly and felt a pop in my left knee. Immediately afterward, my knee felt somewhat weaker than my right one. In the days and after, I began to experience some pain. A week or closer to two later, I went to the doctor, who told me to wear a brace and ice it and come back in a week. I still played soccer, but I told my coach what was wrong and he told me to keep playing even though I was in pain.
Avatar m tn For the last month or so, I'm experiencing periodic burning pain just above my knee on the back side of my left leg. It feels vascular, not like muscle or ligament pain. It appeared quite severely this evening while driving home after playing volleyball. I am a 49 year old male and in excellent physical condition. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn Im 31 years old lost 50 lb back down to 130lb well i have been having this pain in my right knee on the outside of it. the pain feels like a sharp burning pain only when i put pressure on it.. I have lost weight and its still happening. its been like this for about two+ years. My knee clicks at time.. when i wake up in the morning its feels like there is water trapped around my knee cap and swollen alittle. then about 45 mins after i get up the water and swellening goes down.
Avatar n tn Only then, would there be pain. It was more like a burning feeling throughout the top of my knee. The pain isn't really on the interior part of my knee, but more towards the outer layer on the upper portion of my knee. It's also stiff. The trainer is still watching it closely, but hasn't given me an answer on what it might be.
Avatar f tn I had dropped something under my bed, and when I got down on my knees, I felt this sudden, tearing, and then burning pain. I straightened my knee immediately, rubbed it, and in a few minutes it felt better. It's been a couple of weeks since the fall, and anytime I put pressure on my knee when it is bent, I again feel tearing and burning. If I walk with my knee pretty straight, it isn't bad.
Avatar m tn My concern is that at some points it still hurts like an immense burning pain. I don't get a lot of pain, but his is terrible. The problem is the inside of my knee is still numb and has been for months. Is this nerve damage? and how and when should I do something?
Avatar n tn Anyway, when I stretch my leg out, I experience a severe stinging/burning pain just under the knee cap. It lasts for about 20 to 30 seconds and then goes away. I haven't had any injuries (that I recall) and I'm not very active. I don't run, but I walk a lot in my daily routine. I experience no pain when in motion. I saw a post that mentioned buring knee pain, but the symptoms didn't quite match up to what I have.
Avatar f tn Yesterday, when I was sitting at the dinner table and got ready to stand, I pushed away from the table with my left leg. A horrible tearing and burning pain seared through the front of my knee. I can't tell if it's under or above my knee cap. I just know it is bothering me. Also, now I can bend my knee and have pressure on that same leg and experience a tearing pain. I'm just praying I didn't tear a ligament.
Avatar f tn Years ago, my husband was given the runaround for his knee injury...2 years later, after a hellish nightmare with the doctors and insurance, he finally got approval for an MRI and they found out he needed arthroscopic surgery. He is 100% better today, thanks to that surgery (and his persistence).
Avatar f tn We wondered if this might be a neural pain or some kiind of knee injury - but it comes and goes but hurts when touched with a finger,The sharp pain is intermittent. Gardening, painting etc. are difficult. Many thanks.
Avatar n tn I had an arthroscopic surgery on my knee which is the least invasive it gets, and I have numbness over my knee cap still 5 years later! Burning is a symptom of nerve damage. It may also be a sign of RSD which is a complex pain syndrome. RSD can cause irrational amounts of pain in relation to the injury.
Avatar f tn You need to check with the orthopaedician for ruling out a pinched nerve sural or saphenous nerve branch being impinged in the knee joint. Since burning sensation is positional with reference to the knee joint. You might need corticosteroids and physical therapy. Rule out diabetes and B12 deficiency, rheumatoid arthritis and hypothyroidism. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Good evening, Last Saturday 8/16 I fell carrying my 3 year old. My right knee hit the concrete garage floor but the left leg hit a concrete step, about 2 inches below the knee. I had it x-rayed that evening in the ER and was told it was not broken and sent home. I did put ice on it for a few days, and there is no longer any visible swelling. also taking naproxen sodium for pain. What i have is a growing bruise and a growing area of numbness to the left of the impact point.
Avatar n tn Ever since then I cannot knee on a certain part of that knee. 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 n tn Naproxen and Celebrex-slight improvement, leg pain subsided, some numb/stiff-not bad, but no reflex left knee. Discomfort/burning continues in lower back, esp.evenings, though swimming, lying down, shifting, standing all provide temp relief. July MRI "normal". Orthopod, Neurosurgeon can only offer pills, PT, and encouragement. Am confounded so undetectable. Can MRI see inflammation? Scar tissue? What else could be? Thank you.
Avatar n tn Hi My son is 16 years old he got injury in one of his Rugby practice, his Knee cap was broke en he loss 40% of it the Orthopedic Dr said that was the only choice for him to remove it the size was 2.5 by 2.0 cm, he also make some holds in to his femur bone to help develop cartilage, today is his 2nd day after the surgery and he is in so much pain he have a burning sensation.
Avatar f tn I have had both knees replaced several years ago In March I fell on a tiled floor striking my left knee which became swollen and painfu At the ER was told i had a bad contusion My knee is still swollen and tender with a burning The ortho dr can't seen to find what's wrong but the workman comp dr suggest i may have fluid pressing on a nerve...........
Avatar m tn I didn't think it was a serious injury as I could still walk despite the weird and loose feeling in my knee and the next day I continued to massage my calf muscles the same way and it happened again when I bent the knee! This time there was a bit of burning sensation and a little bit of swelling/tenderness and my knee felt really unstable and whenever I bent it a little it would go a little more on its own, something was really wrong.
Avatar m tn My mother had a knee replacement 3 1/2 years ago and after six months she developed a burning pain in her knee. It is now running down from the knee to her ankle and is very tender. She has had nerves removed to try to remedy the pain and been given nerve medication, none of which have been effective. She has been to the pain clininc and received acupunture also.
1330225 tn?1275221998 This condition is called meralgia paraesthetica which manifests itself as pain, tingling or burning sensation of knee. It may occur due to injury to nerve either due to spinal deformity or along its path to thigh by any ligament or tendon stretch, excessive tight clothing (therefore it is also called "jeans disease"), diabetic neuropathy or damage to nerve after surgery etc. Another nerve which may cause pain in legs is sciatic nerve compression.
Avatar m tn I now have numbness and burning pain above my right knee. In the front and on the outer side of my right leg between knee and hip. Nothing seems to help ease the pain or numbness. Any suggestions to what may be causing this problem? Are there any recommendations? Thanks for any help.
