Knee pain back of knee

Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain back of knee


Avatar f tn Hi, There. Most probably the pain in the back of you knee is from your knee itself as there is nothing much to go wrong w/the back ( except possibly a Baker's Cyst) But, the fact that your knee is wanting to give out, the problem is most likely in the knee.Rest, ice,and Nsaids are usually the routine but because you are an athlete I would see a specialist ASAP so you don't further aggrivate something that may have a simple answer. Good luck to you!
Avatar m tn I got hit in the inside side of my left knee during american football practice. I wore cast for a 2 weeks and later had therapies because my muscles were hard to move. A year later I was running during basketball and while turning to left my pressure was on the left knee and I heard some popping and like something moved. Again, my interrior side was in pain and I could not bend my knee all the way back for like a month. 3 weeks ago, I was leaning to left and same thing happened.

Avatar n tn How do you treat severe pain in the back of the knee that seems to get progressively worse over the pass days? Should i go to my doctor or wait a while and hope it starts to relieve itself??
Avatar f tn In the hollow bit at the back of the knee is a bursa (a small sack of fluid used to help lubricate the joint). A fairly uncommon condition is when the back of the joint gets swollen and causes the bursa to swell also. Usually some disorder of the knee causes the synovial (lubricating) fluid within the knee joint to increase. This then spills into the bursa at the back of the knee causing it to increase in size. This is Popliteal Cyst.
Avatar m tn I recently had an MRI of my knee and lower back.. However I don't know what the diagnosis means. If any one can answer it would be greatly appreciated.. My knee diagnosis is"there is a deep fissuring in the central patellar cartilage that is full thickness.. There is underlying reactive change in the patella..." My back diagnosis is "at L5 S1 there is a mild diffuse disc buldge without central or forminal stenosis..
Avatar n tn i have pain in the back of my knee went to the dr they said it may be a maniscus tear i am wondering if thats it does the pain radiate to my ankle to cause along with the knee pain it run to the top of my ankle
Avatar f tn Hello , i am facing an issue of massive back pain and my left knee buckling when i stand for long or walk and when i climb stairs specially. Would appreciate if any one of you have gone through the same and if you can some treatment for the same.
Avatar n tn I have been told that this is the cause of frequent lower back pain, right hip pain and occasional syatic nerve issues. I am not sure, however, if this is the cause of my knee pain on the right side, but I also fell on this same knee back in the Fall of 2007 and I am not sure if that caused my current knee pain or made an existing problem even worse. Now, I am dealing with alot of pain and stiffness. I do not feel any popping or grinding.
Avatar f tn A disc issue in your low back from standing all the time might cause the knee and foot pain - I don't know. Keep after you pcp to help you figure it out and get you some relief. Good luck.
Avatar f tn I have left knee pain and also pain in the left side of back. I think its my left SI joint. I did strengthening of my left quadriceps and hamstrings and my knee pain disappeared but it always comes back when i stop the exercises. What could be the cause of this as its always 1 thing or the other which aches but never both at the same time??
Avatar m tn I have pain in the back of my left knee. The pain is not constant, it only bothers me when walking or if I try to bend it. There's no injury or swelling. It's not from overuse as I'm fairly sedentary. There was significant pain in the first couple of days then gradually got better after about two weeks. That was the first time. Almost two months later it's back again with the same sort of symptoms. The only difference is I can feel a pain in one of my inner thigh muscles as well.
Avatar f tn I have been having a lot of pain in my right knee. I fell on ice a few years ago and since it bothers me. My biggest concern is that it frequently pops out of joint and when that happens it take a few days to feel like it is back in place. Every time I lift my leg or twist to turn it feels like it is out of place. I am not sure if I could have some sort of injury from falling or if it could just be arthritis as I also have pain in my other joints.
Avatar n tn I have a pain in the back of my right knee. I can sit for about 5 or 10 min and when I get up I feel like I am going to fall. When I lay in bed it aches. Its just the back of my right knee and I can feel that it is swollen. Can anyone help me with this pain. I have tried icy hot cream and bengay hot towels.
Avatar n tn I've been having some...actually a lot of back and knee pain. my back pain is in my lumbar/thorasic area. I've had x-rays taken and the doctors have said that they were'nt able to see anything wrong with it. So how would i treat this pain? The knee pain has been a near constant occurance for about 3 years. i've had orthopedic surgery on my left knee and had the plica removed but i still have a lot of pain in BOTH knees.
Avatar n tn The latter proceedure, has a faster recovery but it can lead to trouble years down the road because of the absence of the normal meniscus. With a meniscus tear (torn cartilage) in your knee, the shock absorbing capacity of the joint is threatened. Because of this, there is an increased risk of developing damage to the articular cartilage surface of the knee joint bones, causing arthritis. I think that is what is causing you so much pain.
Avatar m tn Work makes the anterior/medial part of my knee just near my knee cap ache. Exercise also tends to do this. Awhile back I hit approximately that same location (more medial) on the side of a desk leaving a bruise/large bump. That was a few months ago, and I still have somewhat a bump. Just yesterday I had a long day of work and the back of my knee started to hurt. Could this just be tendonitis or something more? I don't want to go to a specialist if it's just tendonitis.
Avatar m tn t met with any accident, i have this problume from last one year, i get the treatment, doc said its because of lower back pain but i did't feel any back problume, i am not a sports person, when i was work hard & make any excersies like thredmill my pain getting hard, my i know what is the reasons to get knee pain.
1850203 tn?1325257208 The other possibility is that it is not a bone growth but a hard Baker's cyst (or popliteal cyst). This is a fluid-filled lump at the back of the knee. This is caused by fluid built up under pressure within the knee cavity in response to an inflammatory problem within the knee. Usually no treatment is given if there are no symptoms. If anti-inflammatory medications are not able to take care of the pain, then draining the fluid is an option.
Avatar f tn I'm 17w5d and for the past like 3 or 4 nights of work my knees have been in more pain than the rest of my body. Yes my feet, ankles, back, etc. hurt too, but my knees are the thing killing me. And sometimes they lock up and i think i am about to fall over because of it. Has anyone else experienced anything like this, or am i on my own here?
785373 tn?1236332003 Now I have a pretty good one, and went to the Dr's the other day was given Vicoden, Naproxen, and Predisone. Was given a MRI of hip, and back. Doctor says she also thinks the pain comes from back. Havent got results back yet. Pain starts in hip, usually when lying down or sitting in a certain type of chair. Goes down the back of my leg, down to my ankle, sometimes into my toes, sometimes into my heel.
Avatar n tn X-Ray of the knee (A.P view and Lateral Vies) are must, to rule out possibility of arthritis. Blood tests would be important if you want to rule out Rheumatoid Arthritis (Complete blood profile , ESR, RA factor, ASO titre,CCP) are the basic few tests for RA. So request you to update me, after these tests. Regards.
Avatar f tn There are non- or less-invasive treatments (physical therapy, pain management specialists, synvisc injections, custom knee braces) that could alleviate some of the pain and stave off the inevitable. You may be able to get relief with a partial knee replacement, if one side of your knee is significantly worse than the other. Good luck!
Avatar m tn I'm looking at a spinal fusion at L5-S1 soon with severe low back pain and some numbness in the foot (minimal sciatic pain). I'm wondering if my knee pain could be referred pain from the back. I've heard numerous anecdotal stories about such referred pain, but none of the doctors I've talked with are willing to acknowledge that such a thing exists.
Avatar f tn It also throbs at times in the back. I had a different type of knee pain on the same knee six months ago. My doctor ran tests for autoimmune diseases and found nothing. Any suggestions? Rest is not an easy thing to get right now, but I could rest more than normal. Thank you!
Avatar f tn Now I am having alot of lower back pain when I stand for short periods of time and my upper spine aches as well. Sometimes I get pain in my hip area. What could this be? I have a rash on both side of my nose that is a little itchy, red and bumpy. It has been there for at least 3 weeks now, I am taking bactrim will this help?
Avatar f tn Pain on either sides of the knee is usually related to meniscal tears, injuries to the collateral ligaments, and even to arthritis. Pain in the back of the knee can be caused by arthritis or Bakers cysts (cystic accumulation of synovial fluid, also causes a swelling). 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.
