Avatar m tn Swelling of your bursa (a fluid-filled sac that helps with movement of your knee joints) above your knee cap
Avatar f tn I have a very high level of pain the joint of my hip...or ..the joint on the right side of my body that 'joins' the top of the leg to the base of my body. What causes this..arthritis ? Is there any kind of 'injection' I could get for the pain directly in the joint area ? While I am here on my left side...I only have this pain when I lie down on my left side.....What causes a pulse like pain that kind of travels that leg ?
Avatar m tn whether the drained knee bursa sac obsorbs in the body on its own. Any medicinal treatment is required. Please advise me.
Avatar m tn Sudden onset knee pain can be due to ligament tear, bursitis (A bursa is a small sac of fluid. It cushions the outside of knee joint so that tendons and ligaments glide smoothly over the joint), meniscus injury or due to dislocation of patella. The pain can be severe enough to be felt throughout the leg or make it impossible to straighten the leg. Please consult an orthopedic specialist ASAP. Until then do not put weight on the concerned leg. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Usually a burning sensation on the knee with pain is due to inflammation of burs or bursitis. A bursa is a small sac of fluid. It cushions the outside of knee joint so that tendons and ligaments glide smoothly over the joint. This is usually treated with rest, anti-inflammatory drugs and physiotherapy. If infection is suspected then antibiotics will be prescribed. If pinched nerves are suspected you will need to undergo nerve conduction studies. Please consult an orthopedic specialist.
Avatar n tn However, as with snapping hip syndrome, inflammation may develop in the joint, and there can be swelling if a tendon or bursa sac becomes aggravated or damaged. According to the Library of Congress' Everyday Mysteries, excessive popping may lead to some soft tissue damage, although the effects can be minor. You shouldn't have to worry about any popping going on in the hip joint. If the noise can be eliminated by adjusting your sit-up position, consider making a change.
Avatar n tn t have much pain or discomfort but by the 3rd day I began to have pain in the Pes anserine Bursa below the knee. Then over the next week the knee started to get tighter and I started to to hear more popping and swelling around the knee. I also noticed that my IT band on the side of my knee will snap when I pivot or change directions. Over the past few days I had started to bike more and do some lunges and squats, stretches, etc.
Avatar f tn It is possible that there is a swelling of the bursa at the front of the knee resulting in acute prepatellar bursitis. A direct blow to the knee can lead to this condition. There is rupture of blood vessels which bleed into the bursa leading to swelling and triggering an inflammation reaction in the walls of the bursa. The swelling may reduce but tenderness persists due to the thickening of the walls. Any surface injury can trigger acute bursitis.
701160 tn?1228413523 However its swollen more towards the left of the knee rather then the center. About 3 years ago My bursa swelled up due to constant friction of the knee rubbing againts a wrestling gym mat. It was swollen and very irritable/stinging to the touch. The bursa eventually popped and I had to get my knee drained. Right now the Bursa just seems to be swollen. IT feels like the same type of pain from before, but for some reason most of the swelling leans towards the left side of my knee cap.
Avatar n tn Got all the pills and drained right knee. If its not better he has to cut.
Avatar m tn There is T2 hyperintense fluid collection in the suprapetellar bursa and joint space. No evidence of any capsular or synovial thickening is seen. There is T2 hyperintense signal intensity in the lateral tibial condyle- suggestive of marrow edema/ bone contusion. Rests of the periarticular bones are normal in signal intensity. Patella is normal in signal intensity. Hoffa pad of fat reveals normal signal intensity. IMPRESSION: Study reveals ACL rupture with disruption.
Avatar f tn I have a question. I had a knee scope (to clean out scarr tissue underneath knee cap) on 3-26-2012 I only took a week off of work & started PT 9 days after surgery. I am walking better & the bending is getting easier. My question is (my PT guy could not answer) why do I still have fluid on the top of my knee (left side) if the holes are at the bottom sides of the knee cap.
Avatar n tn I have had both of my knees operated on and the bursa sacks removed.the right knee is now fine but the left one continues to swell to the size of a softball.What can I do?
Avatar m tn If I was to sit with my legs straight out and bend my left knee it hurts really bad in the hip joint area. ..It is almost like I don’t have the strength or muscle to lift my left leg. I would like to point out that I am in good shape, I work out and as recently as March completed the P90X program, which is not for the faint hearted, with no problem in my leg.
245285 tn?1220498346 I would suggest you to apply ice packs on your knee joint 4-5 times a day till the pain and inflammation decreases. Take NSAIDs, rest and avoid weight bearing for couple of days. If your symptoms continue then I would suggest you to go for scans (X-rays and if required MRIs) to diagnose any bone or soft tissue damage. Always wear proper shoes and walk and exercise on suitable surfaces and avoid concrete and hard surfaces. Take care!
Avatar f tn I had a my left knee scoped on Aug 22nd and I returned to work Nov 23. My Dr had me limited to 6 hrs shift, but I work retail so of course I've been having to work longer hours than that. So know my knee is swollen and I'm having pain in the again shooting through the back of my knee and sharp shooting pains in the inner knee joint. I'm also having numbness in my foot as well. I called the Dr office and they bumped up my Dr visit. Any advice?
Avatar f tn In my job, I am on my knees frequently. A few weeks ago I started to notice a pain in my right knee when kneeling. The pain is localized, kind of like a pin *****-- feels more like it is in the skin as opposed to being a bone or joint issue. The pain is not illicited by any manual pressure, only the kneeling, which I do often enough that this has become very frustrating. Your advice in this matter would be very well appreciated. Thanks!
Avatar m tn Vinod I wanted to add it also said there is a tiny posterior joint extension into the gastrocnemius semimembranosus bursa. There is no joint infusion. They also stated on this MRI report that minimal partial-thickness articular carlilage ulceration of the femoral trochlea. Can you translate this into laymans terms for me. Thanks for anything you can tell me.
546214 tn?1214454140 Hi, Water on the knee is a generic term used to describe knee swelling which occurs when excess fluid accumulates in or around the knee joint. There are many common causes for the swelling, including arthritis, injury to the ligaments or meniscus, or when fluid collects in the bursa. This condition is known as prepatellar bursitis. The type of fluid that accumulates around the knee depends on the underlying disease, condition or type of traumatic injury that caused the excess fluid.
Avatar f tn This may be related to prepatellar bursitis, or "housemaids" knee". The bursa sits in front on the patella (kneecap) and protects the patella tendon as it glides. If you kneel on it for prolonged amonts of time it becomwes chronically thickened and inflamed. You may have a hemorrhagic form, where you are bleeding itno the bursa.
Avatar m tn Rarely ill get one in my knee an my knee will visually be swollen and very painful to the touch and to walk on. I'll usually have only one at a time although occasionally two. They will come on slow over the course of a day in which time I'll usually just take some motrin which helps alot. Then this will only last about 2-3 days This indicates to me that it is a type of inflammation. If I don't take any motrin It will last roughly 4-5 days and will be significantly more painful.
Avatar f tn I have had a sharp pain on the inside of my knee about 3 inches from my kne cap. It hurts to extend and bend knee. It hurts to run but I can walk, bike and stair climb with little pain. I can pinpoint the spot where it hurts. I am a runner.
Avatar m tn the result stated-- There is a moderate amout of fluid in the joint extending till the retro and suprapatellar bursa showing hyperintense signal on T2W and STIR images. Anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments appear normal in integrity and signa intesity. THERE IS A GRADE 1 TEAR OF THE POSTERIOR HORN OF MEDIAL MENISCUS. THE ANTERIOR HORN OF MEDIAL MENISCUS AND LATERAL MENISCUS APPEARS NORMAL.
