Knee pain symptoms tendonitis

Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain symptoms tendonitis


888841 tn?1242516603 Hello Toni, Welcome to MedHelp's Pain Mangement Forum. I am glad that you found us but sorry to hear about your knee pain. You are so young to have knee pain. I am far from an expert but the first thing that comes to mind in your situation is a Meniscus Tear. Meniscal tears are among the most common of knee injuries. They can occur without an actual "injury" to the knee. A simple turn or movement can cause them. They can occur at any age.
604489 tn?1220023514 Has anyone who has suffered with arthritis experience pain in the center of the knee that radiates up the outside of the thigh? For the past week, I have had excruciating pain in these areas that is not well controlled with OTC stuff like Advil or Aleve. Thanks!
Avatar f tn The bone scan showed activity and inflammation in my knee and ankle. The PA I went to told me that it is tendonitis in my knee with referred pain. I just want to be sure. I only feel pain in my knee when I'm actually running. After I'm done running, the pain is localized in my tibia. Has anyone experienced something similar? It is actually patellar tendonitis? It just seems weird to me that a injury in my knee doesn't really hurt my knee that much but severly hurts my shins...
Avatar f tn m reading online, I see to rest it and discontinue any activity that aggravates the knee or causes pain. I was curious whether I should be using crutches or not, I just don't want to make it worse. The orthopedic didn't say anything about it, and just gave me a NSAID cream to put on it for the swelling and what-not.
Avatar n tn Sometimes you have surgery and bursitis or tendonitis sets in , most of the time a MRI and a EMG can tell you if you have nerve damage and muscle weakness.
Avatar n tn Hi, Thanks for writing in. Pain in the knee cap usually refers to injury or under development of patella. Conditions causing this could be patellar bursitis, chodromalacia, patellar and quadriceps tendon rupture, fracture of the patella, subluxation and dislocation of patella. In your case, it is injury due to over use. It could most likely be pre-patellar bursitis, which causes pain during movement, limited movement and swelling.
Avatar f tn I have had knee and elbow pain for years, possibly resultant of many years of horseback riding and injuries. About 12 years ago I had a bout of tendonitis in both arms ( I owned and walked 2 Great Danes daily and did lawn mowing, tree and shrub trimming). I have suffered with this is greater and lesser degrees over the years, depending on what I am putting my body through. About 5 years ago I began having pain and weakness in my thumbs.
Avatar m tn Hello! I'm 14 and I've been having knee pain for 2 years. One doctor told me it's growing pains but I don't really believe it, becuase I don't grow much anymore. The second doctor told me it's because I don't have enough synovial fluid in my knee joints and he offered me injections. I don't know what to do. What if there's something else that causes this pain? I've also got knock knees. Can this be the problem? Please help me!
Avatar n tn I have had tendonitis in my knee for slightly more than a month during the summer and had gone for physical therapy in August & part of September. My physical therapists got the swelling in my knee down enough to be not seen or felt with sonagrams and stretching excersizes. Now I'm "recovering" but it does't feel like it. I feel pain radiating down the side of my right leg when I'm sitting and sometimes when I'm walking.
Avatar n tn Hi, About 3 weeks ago I bumped my left knee into the corner of the bed and was in excrutiating pain for about a minute or so. The skin broke on the knee cap. I put ice on it for 20 minutes and kept the leg elevated during this time. The pain was localized to the area of the broken skin. A few days later, a scab formed where the skin was broken, and although the area still hurt when pressed, I had no problems walking, jogging or swimming.
Avatar m tn i got a bad knee if i try to work on it i start limping and it throbbs and ackes even in t he summer time is that arthritis or do u think theres something else wrong in there
Avatar m tn Any suggestions for going on 3 weeks of knee swelling/pain? thought I hyperexteneded my knee but now synvisc 1 shot may be the culprit. Waiting for xray results, wearing knee brace. Any thoughts?
Avatar m tn I am 45 years old from last year i am suffering from knee pain. Last year started left knee pain and this year started right knee pain Please suggest me what treatment can i take and what type of exercises can i start to solve my knee pains.
Avatar f tn I went through Physical Therapy and my pain was very minimal (have always had slight knee pain) for about two months before I started having the problems again. Turns out I have Tendonitis again, but no one can answer why I keep getting it(I am not an athlete I am 21 years old and I work in a retail store in Customer Service and my latest visit was to an Orthopedic Specialist) and what else I can do besides Physical Therapy to stop these issues.
Avatar f tn If the pain comes on bending the knee, then it could be due to Patellofemoral syndrome or runners knee. 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 while playing), flat feet, over tight or over lax muscles around the knee joint.
Avatar f tn In addition to my left wrist area, I now feel pain in my fingers, elbow, shoulder, neck, jaw, teeth and ear, as well as my ribs, hip, knee and ankle areas. All the pain in these locations is only on the left side of my body. I can get very short-term relief by "popping" any of the joints near the previously mentioned affected areas. My question is, how could this tendonitis spread? Can tendonitis do this? If not, then what is affecting me?
Avatar n tn The combination of a direct blow to the patella (kneecap) and the symptoms of stair pain and pain when sitting for long periods of time are classic. This is sometimes called "dashboard knee", it occurs in motor vehicle accidents when the knee hits against the dashboard. It's unclear whether this is related to your current problems, even though the symptoms are the same.
Avatar m tn I have knee pain in my right knee when I kneel down on it.About a year ago the same knee for some reason unknown to me got very swollen & had to use crutches for about a week. Anyway when I kneel down it is like kneeling on a tack. Then it has a sensation of a rug burn to the touch. After about five times of this happening I looked more closely. On the right lower outer edge of knee cap it gets a swell pocket. It does not swell up the entire knee just this oval like shaped pocket.
Avatar f tn Just below the knee of my left leg I get severe pain that causes me to almost have it go out from under me. It comes and goes, but lately its more often. It does not involve the joint itself, it is the very top of thelower leg on the front. It is not swollen,noris it red. I have fallen on the ice a couple years ago striking that leg on the edge of a porch step in that area. I am 150 pounds over weight which I am sure aggrivates it.
Avatar n tn less range of motion at the knee... increase pain in the morning and evening? (pain subsides during the day as you warm up?
Avatar n tn When it gets inflamed due to overuse or injury it is called as tendonitis. There are different types of tendonitis like wrist tendonitis, knee tendonitis etc. According to the types of tendonitis, the treatment varies. But in general conservative measures including resting the area (avoid using during pain episodes) and ice application will help control inflammation and reduce swelling.
5715171 tn?1372914664 I ran a mile. I started stretching and *bam* my left knee started to feel weird. When I stand, or make my leg straight it feels as if it wants to pop or something, not sure how to explain it. I get a small sharp pain when I bend my knee. I might have overstretched it? I don't know what to do and I need quick answers to know if I should keep running or take a break? I'm 14, female. Thanks.
325007 tn?1352560645 Since the surgery I have intermittent pain behind my knee. I believe it is the hamstring tendon. The pain is intense after kneeling or squatting. It goes away fairly quickly. What is the best treatment?
Avatar f tn I also massage my knee and move my knee cap around in tiny circles to unpinch nerves.
