Common Questions and Answers about Knee injury cannot bend

Avatar n tn I can hardly bend my knee; the most I can bend is like 90 degrees, after that, I feel a bad pull in my quadriceps muscles. My quadriceps muscles have swollen just above my knee cap. There is no color or pain. It is just that I feel a bad pull when I bend my knee, its swollen, difficult to walk because of the knee bending problem, there is no pain on the swollen part, but it hurts my quadriceps muscles when I try to bend my knee. Please give me a solution to this problem.
Avatar m tn 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. L4-5: minimal disc eradication and disc height loss and disc bulge and sonspondolysis. Left greater than right minimal to mild facet afthropathy.
Avatar f tn Thanks,well no he stayed home all those days at home coz not only knee injury but he had head injury too,so he was resting and didn't go to any pt, he lost his memory.but now he is alright with the memory.the thing is he can't bend his knee.he told me not to worry and forget about it.but i want to help.do you think there is still hope?does it have to do anything with arteries,you think?
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!
117078 tn?1200022671 I fell hard on the sidewalk on my right knee cap and I immediately had swelling and a large amount of fluid on top of the kneecap. I was not able to bend my knee at all. I elevated it for several hours and put ice on it. I tried to get up and my right foot turns dark blue and the veins stick out and start to swell immediately, the swelling i n the knee returns immediately even though it goes down a little bit with elevation and I still can not bend it.
Avatar m tn Once every other day my knee will give way, it feels like something comes loose in there and it partially locks (cant bend it very far at all) and something sticks out on the top right (of my right knee), it is very painful, I need to move it around and it will kind of pop back in place. Its frustrating being told there is nothing wrong with me when it is having quite an impact on my life, and making no signs of getting better what so ever.
5715171 tn?1372914664 This happens due to malialignment of the knee cap on bending the knee (and hence any imaging study has to be taken with the knee bent), injury to the knee (you may have sustained it in past), flat feet, over tight or over lax muscles around the knee joint. All these aspects will have to be investigated by your doctor. Other possibilities are bursitis (inflammation of fluid filled sac over joints), tendonitis (inflammation of cords joining muscles to bones) or due to weakness of patellar bone.
Avatar n tn i have pain under both kneecaps and is painful to walk on but there is no pain when i bend either knee I have suffered no injury that would cause this and pain was in right knee first and now its both
Avatar f tn Unfortunately, it is imposible to make a diagnosis from this simple description. If your pain is persistant, and does not respond to a short period of rest or activity modification, then I would suggest evaluation by an orthopedist. At that time, your doctor will take a thorough history, examine your knee and entire lower extremity, and use xrays and MRI if necessary, to formulate a diagnosis. After a dianosis is reached, then a treatment plan that makes sense for you canbe instituted.
358594 tn?1211255129 Reconstruction of the ACL is recommended,if instability continues even after leg strength and knee motion has returned. In serious knee injury, do not attempt to move the joint. A splint should be used to keep the knee straight .Take complete rest as your right ankle is injured and do not put weight on your injured knee. Best .
Avatar n tn If I lie down and try to bend the knee, drawing it up to my body it feels very strange, as if there is cotton all around the inside of the knee. It feels swollen, too. Can ANYONE tell me what's going on? The 2nd physician wants to do arthroscopic, BUT I can't take the time off work, and I have a bad history of not waking up from anesthesia...so I would use surgery as a LAST resort.....
Avatar n tn I have been unable to bend my right knee for 6 months.I walk with a limp and have aching down my calf and sometimes pain can come on around the left side of the knee.It is slightly swollen.I have seen three consultants and have had 1 xray and 2 mri scans but no one has been able to diagnose me. My quality of life has been restricted as i walk with a limp,cannot walk up stairs properly,cannot drive ad ride a bike.
Avatar f tn Hi..Its been 4 days after my IM nail surgery.But i cant bend my knee.Just a little.Very stiff.Is this normal?Sorry for my English.
Avatar m tn 5 days later it seems the knee is a little better but I still cant bend my knee straight all the way but I can bend it back all the way. I can walk almost perfectly except I cant extend my leg all the way,but I am walking almost normally.It doesn't hurt at all and I can even stand on one leg with the messed up knee. The thing is though, it has been 5 days and it still isn't completely straight and the doctor said 10 days.
Avatar f tn When i bend over without bending my left knee, i get a electric shock like feeling between my heel an ankle.would you please send me feed back on what it might be.only hurts if i bend over.thanks kay.
Avatar m tn I felt pretty unstable after that. I kept my knee straight as I walked to sit down. When I sat, I bent my knee and my knee just... locked? I felt like some bone came out of socket and stick out of my skin. I flinched and extended my leg and it snapped back. It has happened every time since then when i bend my knee. The pain is EXCRUCIATING. My doctor is out of town until next Saturday and I only feel comfortable with him.
Avatar f tn Should I understand that you HAVE been to a Dr. and he said it was a torn ligament? 'Cause that would explain the bruising and the crackling knee bend (that's probably bone against bone sound). That's surgery, dear. And asap. Especially if it bruised, swelled and then went down; see, that tells me the "bruise" went onto the bone ('cause the ligament wasn't there anymore), and you DO NOT want to let that go for too long.
Avatar m tn Felt pain in right knee when pulling sofa forward about 4months ago. At the time I had no swelling , no continuous pain or knee wasn't buckling. However, when I've tried running I can't totally put weight on right knee. When I'm lying on my back, and bend my leg there's no pain. When I starighten my leg I can feel pain.ive tried holding my leg halfway and the pain is there around my right knee.ive not been to doctors because I have no "major symptoms".
1587585 tn?1309432260 t swollen, nor is the area around it. I can straighten my leg all the way (but its sore) When I bend my knee back it really hurts. The pain seems to be coming from behind my knee. What do you think is causing the pain?
Avatar f tn It is possible that you injured your knee, and then were compensating for the injury and strained another place in your leg. However, without physical examination it is impossible for me to accurately diagnose the problem. Your doctor will be able to examine the areas and order any necessary tests to give you an accurate diagnosis and help you decide on a treatment to relieve your discomfort.
Avatar m tn A couple of months ago i had really bad pain in front of my knee and could not hardly bend it cause it also hurt in the back of the knee too.It is still sensitive and at night if i lay on my back with my legs flat to the bed to pain is so bad that it wakes me.I have an appointment the middle of this month with an orthopedic dr.I can't hardly wait to see what this pain is it one of the worst pains i have ever had..What do you this is the problem?
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!
Avatar m tn Temporary relief would come from rubbing the knee cap gently, primarily on the inside of the knee. I began running again in the summer (8 months post injury) and immediately noticed that I had some new pains associated with running. The head of the fibula bone at the knee would feel sharp pains, on and off, unexplainably. A similar pain would shoot up the underside of my leg, near the outside of the leg by the IT band, but not the IT band.
Avatar n tn 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. When an ACL injury occurs, the knee becomes less stable and there is a sensation that the knee will 'give out' from under them. Consequently, there would be difficulty in doing high demand work beyond the activities of daily living.
Avatar n tn About a year ago, everytime I walked for a straight 10 - 15 minutes I would be unable to bend my knee because of the pain. However, I would slowly keep trying and after 1/2 hour to an hour it would be ok. Over the course of the year the time got longer for it taking me to be able to bend my knee again. Soon, it wouldn't take much and I couldn't bend my knee at all. I have had an x-ray where the NURSE told me I had arthritis and inflamation.
