Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain in adolescent girls


1308443 tn?1302693321 They said I had flat feet and gave me orthotics. The second orthopedic specialist said I had adolescent anterior knee pain and there was nothing he could do for me. A few weeks ago I went to the rheumatologist and he diagnosed me with bursitis. He started me on some anti-inflamitories but I am still having lots of swelling and tons of pain. Next time I go in he wants to drain my knees and inject some cortisone. Is the swelling likely to come back and will the pain come back?
Avatar f tn I have had the bump on my knee since I was an adolescent. I've been wanting the bump gone as well I do light yoga my bump touches the ground where it shouldn't and it's bothersome. Is it possible to have it surgically removed?
Avatar n tn Bursitis, tendinitis can occur due to trauma or wear and tear due to daily activities. Osgood -Schlatter disease usually occurs in young boys and in the adolescent age. This problem becomes more noticeable during activities that require running, jumping or going up or down stairs. I would suggest that you take your doctor to an orthopedician for physical examination and get x-rays of the knee for confirmation of diagnosis and further assistance on treatment. Best.
Avatar f tn I have 4 girls and 1 boy, the boy is now 15 and is in the middle. The oldest is 27 and youngest 13. Now my boyfriend is accusing me of being to naive with how adolescent boys think as I have never been embarrassed with the human body and would regularly walk around in my underwear or bra on around him. Myself and his sisters have been doing it all his life, I/we think nothing to knock and walk into the bathroom if he is in the shower and vice versa.
1308443 tn?1302693321 I just question whether there is really NOTHING to be done. It is very painful and common in teen girls so you would think there would be a fix.
Avatar f tn I had some mild pain in the calf of my left leg. My doctor said it is not a clot. The pain has gotten extensively worse now affecting the knee. I went back to doctor and the doctor said it is arthritis of the knee and that, at this point, no tests were necessary. Well, in spite of anti-inflammatory meds, I cannot put my full weight down on my leg without pain that seems more concentrated directly under the knee. I am walking around limping.
Avatar n tn My nine year old daughter, Irene, has presented with knee pain for the last three weeks. She has to use crutches to walk. She can bend her leg at the knee with no problem but she cannot straighten it without crying out in pain, she cannot put any weight on it because it hurts worse. She has had x-rays, an MRI and has appointments with physical therapy, orthopedics, and rheumatology. The xrays came back negative, the MRI showed no problems with her bones just slight inflamation.
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 f tn im 14 and ever since i fell about a year ago i began having real bad knee pain it started in my right knee, it was relly bad & i couldnt walk w/o crutches and a knee brace for about a week. then the pain went away for a while about 4 1/2 months and now its come back but this time on my left knee. i dont know if this has anything to do with my injury, it also could be my weight even though it shouldnt because im not too overweight just average.
Avatar f tn Hi again everyone, my leg is killing me, its really swollen today, and i have radiating pain from my ankles to my hip. My pain has definitely got worse since i had surgery, not in my knee but everywhere else. I just hate playing the waiting game, because thats what my doctor makes me do, and im not able to take pain meds, so i have to deal with it everyday. It's very irratating, and it's hard to stay positive and happy when all im able to do everyday is sit in my bed and watch tv.
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 m tn t suggest arthritis to me, I have arthritis of the knee and I get pain in the knee, also in muscles that work the knee. I don't get numbness anywhere else. I'm not medically qualiified but a doctor should check this out, whatever it is you will be better off with treatment.
389909 tn?1225996852 This can result in pelvic pain, including bladder symptoms and pain with bowel movements (you and your daughter can visit for more info). I suggest you have your daughter see (if she hasn't already) someone who specializes in adolescent gynecology. If it turns out the origin of her symptoms are gynecologic in nature, a trial of the birth control pill will likely be helpful (and can be helpful for endometriosis).
Avatar f tn ( but i have a lot of pain in my knee, and my hip today. I sometimes get this pain that radiates from my ankles, up to my knee and right now i just feel it in my knee, its a very uncomfortable feeling.
Avatar m tn The location of the knee pain can be a useful guide. Pain in the front portion of the knee can be caused by bursitis (inflammation of the lining of the joint, possible due to injury while playing), arthritis, or injury to the patella cartilage (front portion of the knee). Pain on either sides of the knee is usually related to meniscal tears, injuries to the collateral ligaments, and even to arthritis. You will need X-rays and MRIs of the knee to find the exact.
Avatar m tn Hello, I'm an 19 year old male and since the last week of August, I've had a sharp pain in my knee. It's occurs in my left knee, on the inside. It's very near to the platella, but I don't know if it's the tibia or the fibula. It's the bone that kind of slightly juts out. Anyways, it hurts to bend the knee and walking up and down stairs causes slight pain as well. Any insight on the problem is appreciated. Thanks for your time!
Avatar m tn Since two years i am having pain in my both legs ,specially in left leg. Pain starts from above the knee and goes till calf. pain is more near knee. pain increases when i stand for a long time or do some intense physical work. i have gone through all medical tests like X-ray, MRI of knee and spine, Arthristis profile, diabetes , but nothing is there in these tests. it is more of a muscular pain. and it keeps on increasing. Doctor doesn't said anything. gave some muscles relaxants.
Avatar f tn I have been on fentanyl, embeda and opana, Right now I have a spacer in my right knee because the staph infection was so severe they could not put in a knee yet so I still have one more surgery to go. My problem is the morphine er is not working or lasting so I have started taking 30mg of morphine with still no relief. My pain management doctor scared the crap out of me when he gave me narcon in case I overdose. I want to take 60mg of morphine to see if it will work but I am so scared.
482924 tn?1333203671 I'm having pain in the left knee for the past few months which has now spread to other joints like the ankle, right knee, wrist, fingers, hip etc. I've been to an orthopaedic. Knee x-ray shows arthritis. Blood test results for uric acid was 6.9. Doc gave me meds. After 1 month repeat test showed uric acid as 3.5. But pain in the joints have worsened. Doctor told me to get blood reports for serum calcium, vit d & anti ccp. Tsh too. Reports were - Ca 9.0, TSH - 1.

Avatar f tn i would think the weight gain has a lot to do with it, but having gone through 2 knee surgeries i know what knee pain is and i completely get u!! it is horribleee and unbearable... as i said weight gain usually affects the knees, but i don't think it should cause bruising, if though u have a pinched nerve or maybe even tore ur meniscus (which u can do without knowing, I did.. twice) then that might be causing the bruising..
Avatar m tn After about a week of mild pain the pain went away. In the last few weeks I have been noticing more slight pain in the knee, as well as some perceived weakness in the knee. I've also found a slight bump across the patellar tendon, and overall the knee does not seem to feel right. Should I be seeing a doctor, or could this possibly be something I can treat at home? Any ideas on what it could be? Thank you.
Avatar f tn I was dating this guy for a few months, and when we finally decided to have sex, he wasn't able to get it up. Now I know that this is an embarrasing situation for the male, but what exactly could have gone wrong? He recently hurt his knee pretty badly during while playing a football, and he blamed it on the pain in his knee. But i was talking with my girlfriend, and she says it's because he was nervous. Now I don't know if I believe that, because he's been with many girls...
