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.
Avatar f tn I twisted my knee and when it happen I heard and felt a pop on the inside of my knee. Also, now when I walk, I have pain and crackling on the outside, under the knee. When I am walking and I have to turn or piviot, I get a pain that runs the inside of my knee. And now I can just be standing there and my knee feels like it is really loose and feels like I hyperextended in, the knee pushes back. How ling should I wait to go to the doctor or should I continue to try and heal it myself.
Avatar f tn t hurt too bad but flex the knee and it has sharp pain like i have walking up and down stairs because of the knee caps. I sit in a normal position but lifting foot causing lots of pain around knee cap. I'm guessing I probably pulled something. Have put ice on it and taken ibu. I don't know that there is much a dr. would do but just wonder what I could have pulled.
5245618 tn?1365687749 So as you can see, arthritis can cause an overall knee pain. Ligament injury causes pain to worsen on walking, bending and stretching the knee. Meniscii too if torn or injured cause pain worsening on walking and result in joint instability—that is you are not confident the knee joint will take your weight. Often the person feels a popping sensation on moving the joint. It can also be tendinitis due to inflammation of tendon at the knee joint.
Avatar f tn Pain in the back of the knee can be caused by arthritis or Bakers cysts (cystic accumulation of synovial fluid, also causes a swelling).

Avatar m tn Pain in the front portion of the knee can be caused by bursitis (inflammation of the lining of the joint, is possible due to injury or infection or autoimmune disease etc), arthritis, or injury to the patella cartilage (front portion of the knee). Pain on either sides of the knee is usually related to meniscal tears, injuries to the collateral ligaments, and even to arthritis. Ligament injury causes pain to worsen on walking, bending and stretching the knee.
1587585 tn?1309432260 If you hurt your knee doing side lunges, this may be a meniscal injury or to the MCL. Pain in the back of the knee may be local inflammation, or swelling. Continue the NSAID's, rest, and ice; if the pain persists, see an orthopedist.

Avatar f tn But if I make a turn (not even sharp just like walking in a circle) I feel like it will give out. In fact I was walking around a corner and it did give out towards the inside of the knee. I have had problems with range of motion, although I think it is due to swelling. Swelling by the way has come up quite a bit today.
Avatar m tn My left knee always pops while my right knee never pops. Also, the left knee pops about 40 times a day when i am standing. So my questions are 1. Why does only one knee pop? 2. What does all this popping mean?
Avatar m tn Hello, I have left outer knee pain when I try to pistol at about 45 degree squat and push weight and stretch knee outer side by crossing right knee. Pain is worsening when walking downhill. Its about three years. What the injury should be?
Avatar f tn During the surgery they placed 2 Endor rods going down the middle of my Tibia from knee to ankle. Now that I am making attempts at walking I am having grinding pain and a lot of pain around my knee. My Drs x-rays showed the rod had moved out and that is what I was feeling. He said they can come out now and with minor surgery. My question to anyone, is it to soon to remove the rods? Also, will I be back on crutches for some time? I would appreciate any feedback.

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 It is fine if the knee is at rest or folded, but everytime I try to straighten my leg or walk, I feel the pain in the knee. While walking if I keep my knee bent a little, the pain lessens. I remember no external injury or any other strain on my legs. There is no outside pain or swelling. Also, my knee feels stiff, like the locked knuckles which you bend and crackle to make it normal. I have tried some common medicines but none did a thing. [Note: I am a male of 20 years.
Avatar f tn I am a 14 year old female and had arthroscopic surgery with microfracture to repair torn articular cartilage about 8 months ago. after physical therapy and lots of rest, i was cleared to play lacrosse again. My knee was feeling alot better and stronger. i still wear a brace while i play to try to prevent any further injury. however, i'm afraid its injured again.

Avatar f tn There is also pain when I inadvertently twist my knee (if I turn while walking but not during golf) or when I get up from a sitting position using mainly that leg. I'm confused because I don't have all the usual symptoms of meniscal injuries - I've had no swelling, and my knee doesn't lock completely. Is this a meniscal tear? Could this be from an old injury? Do my symptoms seem to warrant surgical repair or is there some way I can get it to heal without surgery?
Avatar f tn Pain, wobbly knee and cracking/popping sound can be due to ACL tears/injury, meniscal tear and injury or due to patellar injury or Chondromalacia patella in which the knee cap keeps rubbing against the underlying cartilage of femur. You may need a MRI to reach a diagnosis. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar n tn Fell hard on left knee. It became bruised in color and pain, numbness, warm feeling, and burning got worse and worse. The injured area is at the very top of the knee leaving like a crease at the top and across from side to side. It was not in the meniscus area (as I know where that pain radiates since I toreit several years ago and had sursery on it). This does not feel like what I'm I felt previously.
Avatar m tn If your knee is locked it would be manipulated under anesthesia till the knee relaxes and then the torn menisci will fall into its place and the knee is unlocked. The knee is immobilized in compression bandage for 2-3 weeks and this is followed by physiotherapy. If you orthopedician wants to excise the torn menisci microscopically you can go for arthroscopic surgery. You should visit an orthopedician to go for the best course of treatment: conservative or surgical. Take care!
378273 tn?1262097621 I sustained a knee injury 3 months ago. MRI showed Baker's Cyst with debris, subchondral fracture, torn meniscus partially stripped MCL, joint effusion and near-complete cartilate denudation in the lateral patellofemaral joint. Got a cortisone shot, which only helped a little.Ortho doctor called the fracture a bone bruise and said they take months to heal. The torn meniscus won't heal (he said) Other than a "scope" what can I do to get relief!
