Knee joint pain in children

Common Questions and Answers about Knee joint pain in children


4671444 tn?1357794171 Hi! In all probability you have injured the menisci in the knee—either the medial or the lateral depending on the site of pain. Meniscii if torn or injured, 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. Since you had tendon injury 4 years back, this time too it could be a tendon troubling you.
Avatar f tn Severe joint pain in the knee and later also in the fingers. The knee thing turned out to be ostenecrosis where the femur of my right leg was dying. now I think this was all caused by the Tamoxifen, but what matters is that my vit D was very, very low, and it is in many people with cancer and bc. After I found supplements that were effective, and the D normalized, my leg and knee went back to normal. it just started one day without any injury or provocation and it stopped the same way.
Avatar f tn Sorry I should have put a little more detail-I am on Etoricixib 60mg but 10 days ago have been put up to 90mg as found it difficult to walk up the stairs without feeling like I was being hit in the knee. I am 47 years old and have a previous medical history of angiomas in the brain-one removed and one recently diagnosed in the spine with hypersensitivity. I have been told by my GP just to rest for a wk or two until the swelling goes down but it is still there as is the pain on the stairs.

Avatar f tn the pain moves in joint space, you must feel you are unable to straighten your knee and pain get worst. your knee become frail, swell and stiff. The pain lasts for a long time. If you have any of these symptoms, contact to a Orthopedist.
Avatar m tn I had knee pain in outer side of knee while playing soccer. I took serratiopeptidase + diclofenac potassium capsule by doctors advice. I took rest for 2 weeks but when I started playing it started again. Please advice.
Avatar m tn Meanwhile it is advised to restrict movements around the joint. You could wear a knee brace. OTC NSAIDS and ice-packs may also help with pain relief. Hope this helps. Take care!

Then my right knee started hurting. Then both of my hips. MY hips are the ones that hurt the most now, not so much my knees anymore. I've been in ballet for 9 yrs also. I've had x-rays (sunrise, and lateral?), blood tests for arthritis but nothing came up.
Avatar f tn Hi ladies just wondering if anyone else has had knee and ankle pain this early on in pregnancy its my 3rd and i dont remember having these pain with my other 2 children
Avatar f tn s actually not unusual to have an increase in pain after an injection - simply because the injection is traumatic to the joint - after all, they are sticking aneedle into the joint! Quite often, the injections you get in joints also contain a numbing agent, so you may very well feel immediate pain relief - however, once that numbing agent wears off, you experience pain again.
Avatar n tn Sitting for long periods also kills whereas I get shooting pains down my leg into my foot. The pain is worse than labor but it is in spirts and not in one area. the back of my knee is sore but around my knee on the sides get shooting pains as well as the top of my knee. Sleeping is extremely uncomfortable. The doctor has given me a cortizone shot as well as a 6 day steroid pack which seemed to help on the 6th day because I could drive without pain for about 4 days after.
Avatar m tn I have had sex in Western Europe with sex workers but always with condomns on Recently i am experiencing pain in knee and wrist with no other symptoms , Earlier i was regularly exercising but now i have stopped , is it possible that the pains could be because of these problems
Avatar n tn Hi, Thanks for writing in. The knees are the most commonly injured part of the body. The largest joint, the knee is used for everything from standing up, sitting, to walking, running, etc. It's a weight-bearing joint that straightens, bends, twists and rotates. All this motion increases your risk of acute or overuse knee injuries. As you already have a history of trauma there is a chance of ligament injury or meniscal tear or tendinitis.
Avatar m tn It really matters what kind of noise it is in your knee and if it is accompanied by pain. If it is just occasionally popping with no pain, it could be nothing and some exercise like knee bends could strengthen your knee. On the other hand, it is painful too especially with swelling you may want to see a doc. If your knee is making a grinding noise for example it could mean that the cartilage is wearing down.
Avatar m tn Is curcumin a good choice for joint pain? If so what do you look for when choosing the brand? Also what other meds are there for joint pain and how do you choose the right one?
709686 tn?1277432159 All blood tests come back negative for cancer, diabetes, fibro, high blood pressure..etc. I am in constant pain and my anxiety comes and goes. It seems that the more sugar I consume the worse I feel and the worse it makes my anxiety. I do not drink soda, eat mcdonalds or consume large amounts of refined sugar. In would be difficult to find someone that eats better than I do...SO WHY DO I FEEL LIKE CRAP?
Avatar m tn 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. So, all these aspects should be looked into while diagnosing your pain. Weakness and pain in the knee can also be due to patellofemoral pain syndrome.
Avatar n tn Again please let me know if you are still on MH and I can offer a bit more explanation. In general you have reasons for serious knee pain. Unless your PCP has told you otherwise I would not exercise this joint to any degree until you have the consult. you may actually do more damage. But this needs to be your physicians call. I'll look forward to your response....and wish you the very best.
