Knee pain running cap

Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain running cap


Avatar m tn I was back to light running after 7 weeks and very little pain except ocassionaly after a hard workout/run. Ice works to reduce the pain just fine. My question is my knee looks pretty funky with the patella protruding when I flex it to 90 degrees. Is this the result of the lateral release or the cartiledge clean up? I had my other knee cleaned out about 4 years ago, it also looked different after surgery. Just wondering?
Avatar m tn Since then the sensitive area is smaller but is still very sensitive. It is very sensitive on the bony area to the right of my knee cap. I bumped it, I think mildly, with my office chair a short while ago and the pain was very great. Some movements hurt a little, typically sideways motions. Yet running not only does not hurt I actually feel better running then other activities, including just sitting! My guess has been a bone bruise, but I am concerned about what else it might be.
Avatar f tn My knee is stiff and painful today underneath the knee cap where the pes anserine tendon inserts and to the inside of the knee cap (medially). I also have pain in the middle of the back of the knee, is especially sharp if I push into it. In terms of comfort and daily activities, I am having no trouble walking except that my knee will get a little swollen (very slight) and stiff if I walk a lot.
Avatar n tn She woke up yesterday with a Swollen bump under her knee cap that is the size of 1/2 her knee. The top of it has a spot on it that looks like she scrapped or burned it like a rug burn. Says when she presses on it, it burns/hurts. Hurts to bend but only because of the skin being pulled. Obviously I told her to go to the dr tomorrow to get checked out which she is. She has been iceing it.
Avatar n tn It includes the articulation between the tibia and femur (leg and thigh) and the patella (knee cap) and femur. The most common knee problems in running relate to what is called the "patellofemoral complex". This consists of the quadriceps, knee cap and patellar tendon. What is now called patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) has also been called runner's knee, anterior knee pain, or chondromalacia of the patella.
Avatar m tn - Behind the knee cap feels achy/pain - The pain goes away overnight and feels better the next morning - Possibly a little swelling when I run around 10 miles in one session. Any thoughts on what might be causing this? Do I risk ruining my knee if I keep running? Best regards, P.S. I have tried various running shoes, techniques, no pavement running, but no luck yet.
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you feeling? Your symptom of pain behind the knee cap suggests that your pain can be due to either a ligament weakness or meniscus issue. When any patient complains of “knee pain,” the initial differential diagnosis in most of the cases includes: Osteoarthritis, Ligament damage, Meniscus damage or Patello-femoral disorder. If you give little detail regarding your symptomatology it will helpful in discussing further.
Avatar f tn It will start off small and unnoticable then slowly gets worse. The pain will go away when I stretch out my leg and my knee will crack. I also get pain in my knee when I stand up after sitting for a few minutes. The pain is pretty bad and sometimes causes me to stumble or fall over. Today I experienced sharp pains in my knee while walking up and down the stairs. I would greatly appreciate knowledge from anyone on this and/or what I may be able to do to help prevent the pain.
Avatar m tn Now when I'm on the go, I get severe pain in the knee joint area, that stretches from the top of my knee cap and extends down the outside of my knee, it feels like someone kicked me in the back of the leg, and my knee doesn't want to swing/move.
Avatar n tn What i mean by that is, (from experience) some of my back/ butt muscles weren't working so my quads took over and started to pull my knee cap out of place and i had to stop doing weights and running. also do x-rays show cartilage damage, you could have bruised or damaged it somehow as well.
Avatar m tn Hello, I have been having pain mainly in my left knee above and to the left of my left knee cap. I have had X-Rays and a MRI to see if any problems can be found. The doctors said they have found nothing wrong. I went a physical therapist around April of last year during spring track. He said I didn't have enough thigh strength. I do the exercises daily he instructed and they seem to not work anymore. Right now I am running winter track.
Avatar m tn It can also be Patellofemoral syndrome. This happens due to mal-alignment of the knee cap on bending the knee (and hence any imaging study has to be taken with the knee bent), injury to the knee (you may have sustained it in past), flat feet, over tight or over lax muscles around the knee joint. All these aspects will have to be investigated by your doctor.
1308443 tn?1302696921 Cuz my feet go out and that's the problem. I suggest to not do sports with a lot of running. Swimming is a good one. I heard your pain. But you can't stop walking from class to class. For a few tips, stay hydrated, stretch atleast once a day (suppose to do it twice) and keep your muscle strong.
Avatar f tn the pain is at the right side of my right knee, its situated near the fibula, not indicating that my bone is the one hurting, the pain is distinctive as it only hurts in a manner or form of a thread, the pain doesn't take up all of the right part of my knee, its just a thread shape pain that seems to extend from the femur down to the fibula.
Avatar m tn Hi there, About 3 months ago I noticed a pain in my knee, only when it is in a certain position- when I am squatting down on my heels (e.g. to look under a table). I also noticed that if I kneel down and make contact with the ground at a certain angle (just medial to my patella) I get a sharp pain that radiates up the back of my leg. The pain that comes when squatting is less severe.
Avatar m tn My left knee almost always gets a sharp pain below the knee cap after I break into a jog. I then have to ice and ibuprofen treatment and wear a wrap for a few days. I haven't ran consistently for years because of this pain. Why the knee pain only after running and not bicycling/walking/swimming? And only in the left knee. My right knee feels great. Someone might say "quit running" (they may as well say quit living) I am not ready to give it up yet.
Avatar m tn I have a hard boney bump on the outer side of my left knee cap. I only started to notice the bump after I've increased my running miles. The bump has only recently started to give me pain while I'm active. It is not painful to touch, but it hurts really bad when I climb stairs or bend my knee. What could be the problem?
Avatar f tn i went to see the doctor when i was about 7 yrs old. they said the lump on the right side of my knee cap was the growing pains thing, but i'm 18 yrs old now and the lump has gotten bigger. my knee has been giving out on my when i run or walk. one incident was when i was running and my right knee gave out and i tried 2 catch myself with my left leg and my left knee gave out 2 so i fell to the floor the doctors put me on crutches for 2 weeks after that.
Avatar m tn Around a 8 but like any hit pain went away within 5 minutes. My knee cap has been tender ever since. Extreme sensitivity to contact of any pressure. (for example I was getting off a ladder today and my knee tapped one fo the steps) I get a sharp shooting pain, that feels like a nerve bang. Also from the center of my knee cap to the left edge of my knee is now pretty numb. Again this was roughly two weeks ago. I don't have any pain walking or running. Just on contact and the numbness.
Avatar m tn It felt like the pain was beneath the knee cap and it pain spread throughout my leg. It hurt when I laid down and when I walked. I haven't been running or doing anything strenuous on my legs/knees either. I was wondering what might have caused the pain. The pain went away after an hour or two but it returned again for approximately half an hour.
Avatar m tn Lately when I have been running and swimming the knee pain starts when I'm about half way through my 3 mile loop or mile swim. The pain is located on my right knee, lateral side, below the knee cap. I hope someone can give me advise. I went to the doctor and he said it would heal up in time but all he checked for was LCL and said it all the ligaments were in good condition.
5715171 tn?1372918264 If the pain comes on bending the knee, then it could be due to Patellofemoral syndrome. This happens due to malialignment of the knee cap on bending the knee (and hence any imaging study has to be taken with the knee bent), injury to the knee (you may have sustained it in past), flat feet, over tight or over lax muscles around the knee joint.

Avatar f tn I'm having right knee pain whenever I walk or bend my knee. The pain is very sharp. My knee is also swollen and warm to the touch. I have had three knee surgeries in the past for a torn medial meniscus (2004, 2007, 2008). I've been having the pain for a few weeks now and its getting worse and almost everyday now.
Avatar f tn I have had a sharp pain on the inside of my knee about 3 inches from my kne cap. It hurts to extend and bend knee. It hurts to run but I can walk, bike and stair climb with little pain. I can pinpoint the spot where it hurts. I am a runner.
Avatar f tn I had only started jogging for about 100metres when I felt this sharp pain in front of my knee around my knee cap area on both sides. I thought nothing of it and continued another hundred or two meters but the pain didn't go away. It is not very severe (about 4~5 on 1-10scale) but I'm worried because I have never had such pain before. I'm worried it might be something serious and it would prevent me from doing sports in the future. Please advise on whether I should go see a doctor immediately.
Avatar m tn Please ignore my diagnosis of Runner's Knee. My knee pain is more of a knee cap tracking issue. Foam rolling your inner thigh (VMO) helps immensely along with doing leg strength exercises. I use a foam roller on the whole leg but target the inner thigh. Trying to fix posture as well. Hope this helps someone!
Avatar f tn So I do not know if it happened while I was standing in medians, sidewalks, running to hand cars a flyer or did it happen with my SLLLOOOOWW run?? My husband says I hyperextended it- ? but the PAIN is right behind my right knee, that tendon. i guess is what that is, well it feels as if its on fire..and just to the Right of my knee cap, I take my thumb and gently press in and the pain is severe!! My knee is Swollen I have been doing the 20 minute of ice then 20 minutes of heat......
Avatar f tn I have pain behind my left knee when I sit with my knee bent. The worst pain occurs when I try to sit indian style or kneel and then sit back on my heels. I can't sit and turn my left leg outward. It feels like something inside is going to snap. I saw an orthopedist and had knee arthroscopy about 8 weeks ago for what he thought was a torn meniscus. When he went in he said he did not find a tear. He said he did find arthritis and that could be causing the pain.
