Avatar m tn There is evidence of a cartilaginous defect involving the hyaline articular cartilage of the lateral femoral condyle measuring approximately 6mm. A small cartilaginous loose body within the joint cannot be excluded. A small cartilaginous irregularity is also involving the articular surface of the medial femoral condyle. There is also minimal joint effusion. There is irregularity of the hyaline articular cartilage of the patella.
Avatar m tn Right patellar chondromalcia, including full-thickness fissuring along the medial patellar facet. Small right knee joint effusion. Some info on these items: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chondromalacia_patellae http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joint_effusion Left knee: FINDINGS: The medial and lateral menisci both appear normal. No meniscal tear is seen. The ACL and PCL are intact. The collateral ligaments are unremarkable. The extensor mechanism appears normal.
Avatar n tn I remain in PT. If I am standing and bend my leg at the knee I can get to maybe 60 degrees, with help or bracing my foot on the floor, I can bend to 80 degrees. This has remained unchanged for months. My left thigh and left calf are significantly smaller than my right - even immediately after surgery when the PT was coming to the house, my L calf measured 1" smaller than the R - it is approx 2" smaller now. I have profound weakness and my knee buckles/gives out frequently.
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 I can pin-point exactly where the pain is (it moves around the knee and elbow joint) just by touching it. I can also feel a constant throbbing pain without even touching my knees or elbows. I have not been responsive to icing it, physical therapy, several anti-inflammatory medications, a cortisone shot, prescription pain medication, and fibromyalgia medication (Lyrica). I have never experienced any sort of swelling nor do I feel stiff in my joints.
Avatar n tn About 3 weeks ago i noticed, just below/on the outside of my knee i had a loss of sensation there. I wouldnt say its completely numb because i still feel hot and cold or things brushing against it, but for example when i shave my legs i cant feel the razor going over that small area. It is more noticeable in very hot water. Just below my knee when i press it i feel a tight tingley prickley sensation as if pulling on something almost, its hard to explain?
Avatar f tn Hi there :) have flare-up of osteoarthritis in knee after being diagnosed formally when I had an arthroscopy a few months ago. Just wondered how long pain and subsequently being out of action may last for? Any thoughts or ideas would be helpful. Thank you so much.
Avatar f tn Meniscii too 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 I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into.

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 f tn Do any of you have joint pain that is associated with your MS? My right knee is giving me a terrible time but it seems to be more joint related than muscle related. Just thought I would ask! Hope you all are doing well and survived the holidays! Thanks!
5245618 tn?1365687749 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. All these (ligament and meniscal injury and tendonitis) can cause referred pain to calf. The other cause for the pain can be compartment syndrome due to injury or inflammation of leg muscles due to over use. The pain is increased on putting the foot on ground and further increase with walking. You will need X-rays and MRIs of the knee to find the exact.
Avatar f tn Patients with a loose total knee joint limp. The pain is usually felt in the whole knee area, predominantly in the front, along with increasing stiffness and effusion in the knee joint. With advancing time patient will not be able to put weight and diminished motion in the joint. Diagnosis can be made with the help of X-rays. Revision operation can be considered if there is unbearable pain, progression of osteolysis and loss of function.
Avatar m tn 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. Especially if this continues to bother you check with your pcp or an orthopedic specialist before exercising or anything!

Avatar f tn It is quite possible that there is rubbing of either cartilage or bones with the metal or plastic components of the artificial knee joint. Once you go to sleep, the muscles become lax and make it easy for the joint to be more mobile. You may need physiotherapy to further strengthen the muscles around the knee joint. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn Hi there, A complete clinical examination is essential for correct diagnosis. There can fluid within the knee joint itself, or in the surrounding soft tissue. Acute injuries, anterior cruciate ligament tear, meniscal tears, ligament sprains all can lead to fluid or blood accumulation around the knee joint. If there is no history of trauma any infection in the knee joint can lead to swelling.
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?

Avatar f tn No acute fracture or joint dislocation is identified involving the left knee. Bones of the left knee do appear somewhat under mineralized relative to the right knee. Areas of sclerosis within the lateral tibial plateau and lateral femoral condyle are demonstrated, as well as within the distal femoral metaphysis. One or all of these sclerotic foci may represent sequelae of avascular necrosis given reported history. No significant joint space narrowing is identified.
Avatar n tn Hi, about three weeks ago i developed sudden joint pain in my left knee and left elbow. the joints became swollen and hot to the touch.The joints were stiff espiecially in the morning, but through taking celebrex once a day i was able to regain a full range of motion. Initially the doctor took fluid from the knee joint because his feeling was that it may be gout.
