Knee pain in young age

Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain in young age


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 f tn I am 43 years old. I had knee surgery for a torn meniscus in 2003. Last year on Thanksgiving Day I stepped off my porch and hurt my knee again. After having a mri my dr said he couldnt see anything but the pain kept getting worse and decided to scope my knee. He discovered that I had no cartlige and it was completely eaten up with arthritis among other things. I was told I needed a knee replacement but didnt want to do it at my age.
Avatar m tn Hello Dear, Knee replacement is usually not recommended in the young age group. Young physically active people are more likely to wear out their new knee prematurely. A continuous non surgical therapy is more recommended. What has been your age? What is the indication / cause for knee damage? What has been the other associated knee damage and pathology?
Avatar n tn I am 21 years old, and I play volleyball for about 10 years. Semi-pro, but very intensive trainings, also at summer beach volley... What also might be good to say, since I was a child I could (and still can) jump very high about a meter vertically. A few months ago, I started to have back pain, in my lower spine, and horrible knee pain.
Avatar m tn You can have arthritis at young age and when the joint cartilage is lost then you would need total knee replacement. Take care!
Avatar f tn I was recently diagnosed with arthritis in my Right knee. I am 34 years old and was wondering if there is anything I can do for it and my back. A Doctor I saw in PA said they will not do anything for my knee because I am to young. I was told to just quit walking up or down hills and steps.(at the time I lived in the Mountains of PA in a Cape cod style house. So that was a little hard. Plus I have 2 kids. 12 and 8.) I have just moved to a 1 floor house in FL and the pain is worse sometimes.
Avatar m tn When I started reading your message I imagined that you were a fat old lady. What a shock when I got to the bottom to find that you are only 15 years of age. The crunching and popping that you hear is called crepitus. I agree with the others that you do need to go and see your doctor, possibly he may send your for xrays to find what is going on with your knees.
Avatar f tn I found out yesterday that I have almost no cartilidge left in my left knee and there are also spurs. The MRI report contained several big words I can't remember right now but my doctor actually said to me "You're a little young for a knee replacement but........". I am scared to death. In the last six years, I have had the tendons in my right ankle reconstructed and 4 screws and two pins placed in my left hand and wrist.
Avatar m tn First, let me tell you I'm happy you found us here on the Arthritis Comminity! I'm so sorry to hear that you are experiencing these problems with your knees. I understand what you're going thru suffering with this pain at such a young age! My Doctor's believe that my osteo-arthritis began when I was a teenager. By the age of 28, my Doctor's were prescribing a THR(Total Hip Replacement).
Avatar m tn Since then I have still been in pain, knee is catching and locking, and and limp all the time. My right knee is now hurting from compensating for the left knee. I went for another MRI last Wed. and it showas as I said another ter of the posterior horn medial meniscus at the inferior meniscal surface, and says "unchanged from the 4/21/10 MRI" Does this mean they missed a tear then or is this a retear?? The conservative treatment hasn't worked.
Avatar f tn However from the past few months I am experiencing pain in my knee whenever I bend it. It is not a continuous pain but its like a shooting pain when I bend my leg (like in the bathroom or climbing stairs etc). I mentioned this to my Dr and she checked and said the ligaments are perfect and there is no swelling. But I want to know what this pain is if everything is perfect. I am 32 yrs old and it is getting hard for me to sit on the floor or get up. This is obviously not normal.
Avatar m tn After the surgey, my chief complaint is knee pain. In both knees. Mostly in the left knee though. I can some what understand if it was just one knee, but this is affecting both. It seems to be worse when it is about to rain. My heart doctor is dumbfounded and I have seen a pain specialist. The pain specialist thinks it is phantom pains. I have had several xrays, and nothing showing. I am taking several medications, but we have tried dropping and changing to see if they were causing it.

Avatar f tn i am 53 years old. i had surgery for torn meniscus in left knee on 10/13/2007, and i have been in pain since. i am currently receiving my 3rd round of synvisc. i have had 3 or 4 cortisone injections, they seemed to be helping but the times in between have gotten shorter. my dr. keeps telling me i'm too young for knee replacement. he tells me it's arthritis, i can't believe it. i am not overweight (147 lbs.), however, before the surgery i weighed 128 lbs.
523100 tn?1213724854 said I am to young for a repl. so he is going to cut some bone below my knee kinda like a reverse shim.
Avatar f tn s so i have no idea how it happened. Then i started having pain in my right knee which felt the same way as my left knee when the pain started, it turned out to be that i also developed a plica in that knee to and tore something i forgot what it was called, and my recent surgery was in november and i tore the same thing from before, i dont remember the name of it, i know it started with an L though.
Avatar n tn What causes severe pain in the Tibialis anterior that starts suddenly and disappears completely after 30 minute icing.
Avatar f tn For the past few years, I have been having this bad knee pain when I walk. It constantly feels like theres a "bubble" so when when I walk there is a lot of pressure and feels almost like things are sliding/grinding against eachother. It didnt used to happen as much, but lately it does all of the time. So it prevents me from wanting to walk around or run etc. My dad told me he had the same thing almost, but he got surgery on his.

Avatar f tn But, I got permanent swelling from last 3 weeks and pain also. Pain is in my lower and upper part of knee. I tried cooling and hot cycle belt of wrap but still pain exists. This all started from nov 07. I never had injury with my knees. Completed my blood test and routine check up in January 08 but everything is normal. I never had consultation with my knees.
Avatar n tn My knee and lower leg have been in pain for a few months now. I believe the pain is from jogging and putting too much pressure on my leg in general. It hurts mostly when I walk or put pressure on it. Resting my leg and taking naproxen and ibprofen to reduce inflammation does not seem to be healing it. Is it possible that this injury will require surgery? What should I do?
Avatar f tn About 3 weeks ago I got bucked off a young horse and somehow injured my knee. It has pain on the I side mcl area and I am unable to bend it past 90° and I am unable to completely straightin it out. It feels pretty stable.
