Knee injury warm to touch

Common Questions and Answers about Knee injury warm to touch


Avatar f tn I have an old knee injury from a car accident and the last month I've been experiencing moderate to severe pain, decrease in movement and warm to the touch. Anyone able to give me an idea what I should do? Or if I should seek medical attention?
Avatar n tn Knee pain after injury can be due to a number of reasons, but localized tenderness with swelling can occur due to a hematoma or a collateral ligament injury. A ligament injury to the knee is usually painful at rest and may be swollen and warm. The pain is usually worsened by bending the knee, putting weight on the knee, or walking. Rest, immobilization, ice packs are the initial measures to be taken in any kind of knee injury.
Avatar m tn If it were a simple bruise your knee should not be warm to touch. Is there any swelling in the area? It is difficult to determine just what sort of injury your knee sustained with out more information. The concerning factor is the warmth. I would apply ice to your knee and keep it immobilized until you are able to see a physician. I think this would be considered an Urgent Care issue and you should be seen asap. Please let us know how you are doing.
Avatar n tn The patches are not visible except when really bad and then just a rosiness. They are warm to the touch. I get an outbreak several times a year. The only thing I have ever associated with an outbreak is eating too much sugar. I got on a candida kick for a while a they did calm down. (At that time I got them more often.) When I get them now I can usually look back and see a high sugar intake for a while. (I’m not diabetic or pre-diabetic and I have a moderate weight.
Avatar n tn I have been to two doctors, had x-rays and have been examined. My knee is swollen, sore to move, and warm to touch. The doctors tell me to take IBU and ice it. I have been doing that for 9 days now and it hurts just as much as when I first did it. Who do I go to to request an MRI? I don't want to wait for another week or two if I have some damage done and my PCP won't look into it. By the sound of both of your injuries, mine is somewhat similar. Any advise??
Avatar n tn The place becomes tender to touch. You have to go for a gastroenterologist consultation to fix your problem. If it would have been a skin problem/allergy then you would have some physical signs and symtoms. Take care!
Avatar f tn For the last 3 wks my knee is sswollen, warm to touch, is swelled down into my ankle and hurts constantly. If my puppy lays against the outside of my thigh,its excruciating pain all the way down. Even behind the knee is swollen and warm to the touch. The pain is also down my shin bone. Is there a possibility of a blood clot this long after surgery? Even my calf hurts. I don't get Any Sleep and even my toes hurt to move them. What should I do? My surgeon is out of state and quite a drive.
Avatar n tn It feels like I step on a warm spot for a few seconds but my foot isn't warm to the touch. I'm going to see my doctor about it. It may also be correlated with a neck/shoulder issue I've been having for a month. I'll try to remember to post any findings.
Avatar f tn My knee is also swollen and warm to the touch. I have had three knee surgeries in the past for a torn medial meniscus (2004, 2007, 2008). I've been having the pain for a few weeks now and its getting worse and almost everyday now. I'm not sure if I should go to the hospital for the pain (I'm at a university and our health center is not open on weekends), wait until next week when the health center is open, or wait until I go back home in March to see my doctor.
Avatar f tn I barely had to touch it, when that burning pain would shoot from my knee. I thought I was going to need to go the emergency room. Instead, I did what anyone who hates hospitals does. I thought I'd try one last attempt to heal myself, and went for a walk, instead. An hour later, things felt better. Not great, mind you, but not nearly as alarming. But while I was walking, I noticed one other symptom this time: my hips also hurt. And that's how I put two-and-two together.
Avatar n tn Now I am struggling with the decision of whether to get a knee replacement! Good luck to you and please keep touch so we can compare notes.
Avatar n tn The affected skin was exquisitely sensitive to touch and even the usual rubbing of his underclothes irritated the area. Seven years later in 1895, when Freud wrote up his self-observations for a German medical journal, the abnormal sensations were still present, but had migrated. At first, the area of disturbance had been more noticeable near the top of the thigh, but gradually the abnormal sensations moved downward to a palm- sized area a hand’s breadth above the side of his knee.
370181 tn?1428180348 My surgery was done last November, but I am still experiencing a lot of pain from my knee to my hip. I need a cane to walk. I addition, my new hip leg is now 1 inch longer than my other, so I walk with a limp. My doctor seems to think it will all work itself out, but I am sceptical. Is it normal to experience this much pain 8 months after surgery?
Avatar m tn No running or any other kind of pounding sports (had ACL repair of left knee 16 years ago and it's never been the same since. My orthopedist told me never to run again). I went to an orthopedist for this pain and he had no suggestions. He checked the mobility and motion of my knee. I can't find any symptoms like it anywhere on the Internet. I stopped all exercise a couple of weeks ago and it seemed to get better, and then last night in bed it came back, twice within a couple of minutes.
Avatar f tn The swelling and stiffness happens after this kind of surgery but they should have told you before and right after the surgery that if your knee swells and warm to the touch, to call them ASAP. Swelling with warmth to the touch means infection.. no only is that bad in a normal patient but you are pregnant and it can be very bad for the baby. If you haven't gotten it checked yet and you still having the swelling/hotness, go to the ER!
Avatar n tn it started with a back ache and it was sooo painfull to the touch plus it bruse the pain eased a bit there but my left leg started hurting it hurt so bad and i can handle some pain i have a rod in my left leg i broke my femer about 15 years ago so i thought it might have moved so i went to the doctor he xrayed said there was nothing but said something about me brusen that i should see a specialest so ithought rest might work the pain went from lower back only the left side to the calf first it s
1442701 tn?1286387587 my feet and hands are numb all the time and feel like they are in blocks of ice but are warm to the touch. when I was in the hospital 2 weeks ago a doctor took a safety pin and pricked me from the feet up and I couldnt feel it till shoulder level nice huh the only good thing is my husband got a dose of reality I really dont tell him much about my health cause he gets upset but thats a different topic he just shook his head and I could see a tear in his eye.
Avatar n tn Allergic to titanium? I have had three knee replacements, one a cement/antibiotic one. I am in constant pain and my leg has red spots on the aria of the knee replacement and is always wormer then the other leg. Now I have developed a severe allergy in my sinus, with the tubes plug and water on one ear. No one can tell me what I am allergic to. I read many people having the idea of allergies to titanium and I have read that the medical community say it not possible.
1415174 tn?1453246703 But, I hate being dependant on people for anything and right now I have a back injury where I can't bend and my husband has to dress me and a toe infection so I'm stuck at home and so forth. It has been a tough couple of years for me being alone all day until my husband gets home. For a while I couldn't even walk outside to lift my foot up or even wash myself on the lower half. I say this because I've had problems with letting people help me as I have always been the strong one in the family.
Avatar n tn I'm so ADDICTED to picking that if I know I have a scab or something to be picked and I try not to touch it I feel like a nervous wreck, it's the same feeling I get when I need a cigarette ( I did quit those) or a pill. Addiction is addiction whether it's picking, binging, shooting up, or tipping the bottle back. As a 24 year old girl that's been through all of these things. It is all mentally and physically draining.
Avatar m tn Kaur, thank you for your reply to my question. I have another question relating to the injury. During the second week of the injury, I became aware of the hematoma and started rubbing it vigorously to try to break down the tissue. Now, the hematoma has more or less subsided but there is discoloration under my eye and on the side of my cheek from rubbing. Will these eventually go away, or are these permanent? Also, exactly how prevalent is heterotopic ossification?
700223 tn?1318169294 Unfortunately, this results in the even greater ground forces being transmitted to the semi-flexed knee. While overall injury rates for skiing continue to drop, knee injuries, particularly to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are on the rise. Skiing is generally considered to be a sport with a high injury risk. Although, recent advances in design of equipment, as well as technique, has resulted in a drastic reduction of risk.
15086443 tn?1441575126 Well, to shorten up the story, I tried to ct the trams and nearly ended up in a straight jacket. My doctor, who I confessed to, told me it would be better to switch to an opiate and taper off those. So I no longer have trams the last month but the opiate addiction is over the moon. No tapering going on here, and I actually got the percs from a friend at work so I take both. Guys, I'm so terrified! I'm paralyzed with fear.

Avatar n tn If you were able to not touch anything until next friday you will be able to at least fake the fact that you are ok. I was on Day 5 when my girlfriend came to town and a few times shed say i looked sad or something the first few days but i just kinda shrugged it off and tried my best to seem would be closer to a week by then and although everyone is different i think you will be fine..its gonna be a long week though, you need to be prepared for that..
210982 tn?1280987495 I figured he would say he wanted to make a plan to wean me off the meds once the pain was under control or something to that effect. If I am honest with myself, I know I am not ready to get off of them now, but I figured I would get off of them at some point. Now I know I can get off of them on my own, but there is a little part of me that was kinda happy he said what he did. It gives me an excuse to stay on the meds for a long time.
Avatar f tn bruised my leg right in the back of the knee (don't know how I did) and it hurts to touch it and i get pains during the night. Is it a blood clot?
765048 tn?1234589050 Anxiety,stress etc can also cause increased sensitivity to light,sound,touch etc Its true that some people may be allergic to fluorescent lights,but we have to consider that millions of people all around the world uses this technology one way or another like display in computer,tv,mobile phones etc & most people are comfortable with it,so when such a sensitivity problem arise we have to look into eye problems,psychological problems like severe anxiety,stress etc etc not just blaming upon te
1457124 tn?1351529442 I went from being a hard working husband / father of 3 young kids who had just gotten back to work 1 year prior to my injury. I had been out of work for 9 months after bulging a disc in my lumbar spine. The Dr treating me said that There was so much degeneration in my spine that had not known he was looking at the films of a 35 yr old man he would think he was "looking at the spine of a 90 yr.old lumberjack" I went back to work as a hosp.
