Knee problems climbing stairs

Common Questions and Answers about Knee problems climbing stairs


Avatar f tn I began experiencing pain in my left outer knee when climbing stairs. About every other day for about a year, I was climbing up and down stairs,2 to 4 times each, equivalant to about three stories.I fell about 2 feet off a platform at work and was jarred quite a bit, it hurt for awhile then the pain went away. I now have left groin pain that radiates to the outer left knee. The groin pain is constant with a burning sensation. No problems when lifting leg straight up.
12693075 tn?1442246392 I also live on the second floor, so I have to climb stairs. I do get out of breath after climbing the stairs. Honestly, as long as you take it easy on yourself it shouldn't be bad. At least I hope not, because I do this daily!!!
Avatar f tn when you are climbing the stairs the pressure on the knees is 7 times and when coming back 11 times of your weight, it causes a big damage.
Avatar n tn What resulted was an intense pain on the inside of my right knee that usually came after climbing stairs or having to keep my knees in the same position for an extended period of time (e.g. at a movie, or during a car ride). Eventually I went to a doctor who referred me to a physical therapist. The physical therapist claimed it was some form of tendinitis and had me do an assortment of exercises over several months and eventually the pain went away.
Avatar f tn However climbing stairs has always been very difficult. I have a long history of knee problems since the time I was eight years old. They dislocated frequently and I've had other injuries. Of course now I have the arthritis. I was told by one position that I could not have a knee replacement unless they did a Fulkerson because my knee was not tracking properly. I now assume he was referring to a partial knee replacement.
Avatar f tn About 3 weeks or so ago I got up outta my chair to go upstairs and thought i was just sitting wrong because it hurt a little going up the stairs, but coming down the stairs it felt like the inside of my knee was just on fire and immediately swollen. i ended up dropping everything and almost falling down the stairs, being a mother with very limited transportation i just loaded up on tylenol and rode it out hoping i just pulled something...
Avatar f tn I have minimal swelling above the knee cap but no redness, warmth or presence of a fever. The pain is worse when I am sitting, climbing or coming down stairs, and extending the knee from 90 to 180 degrees. I have major weakness in the joint when standing (almost feels like it's going to "give out" if that makes sense). In the past 3 weeks it has started "popping" when I attempt to extend it. It cracks and makes funny grinding noises.
Avatar f tn t really hurt but it has a big bruise and I get a pinching feeling when I bend my knee too much (eg when climbing down long flights of stairs and when putting my shoes on). Is it safe to assume there's nothing wrong and all it needs is time?
Avatar n tn They went up the stairs, and so did this monter. Climbing/Crawling as fast as I could up the stairs, the top of my knee cap (Patella? area) of my knee got "caught" (slammed into) the curve of the next step up. It felt as though my knee cap slammed downward towards my shin/ankle area. A loud POP sounded and my knee instantly went numb and within about 6 seconds looked as though it had 3 ounces of liquid piling up in it. Within about a minute, a bruise was visible.
Avatar m tn Does you HR come up from the low numbers you quoted when you are exercising/walking/climbing? If it does go up to 100 or more when working, such as the climbing stairs you describe, I'd guess the dizziness is not due to a low HR. You should have a check with your doctor, but I think that check could be more effective if you have some of the information I asked for... you know how to measure you pulse so the data gathering should be easy for you.
510679 tn?1265668267 I am still having chronic pain and swelling, and cant do alot af activities like bending, squatting, climbing stairs or going down them. Walking is ook for a little while then pain. Knee is back to crunching and popping too, anyone else has these issues after surgery?
Avatar m tn Now condition is getting worsen day by day. Pain in knee while climbing stairs, playing football etc. Warm feeling in knee and other joints. Infection in eyes. Anal fissure from last three years. So, every thing is happening ....the only thing not happening is ...resolution of chlamydia. Is anyone going through this same phase. Pls advice.
Avatar f tn It feels like I need to recharge my leg’s energy after every short distance of slow walking, then I can walk again another short distance. Also, when climbing stairs or even riding a bus, I need the support of my arms to push myself up ‘coz my legs are too weak. I do feel pain on the hip joints and right leg after a short-distance walk-rest-walk-rest series. And since I can’t stand on tip toe, all my body weight lies on my heels, thus the heel pain.
Avatar m tn On September 7/12 I received a total knee replacement of my left knee. I suffer from severe osteoarthrits and am only 59 years of age. I previously had shoulder replacements in 2008 and 2010 respectively. My right knee is scheduled for replacement on March 25th of this year. My initial recovery from the left knee replacement was excellent. I was walking without a cane within 7 days, and no longer needed any medication stronger than ibupuprofen.
Avatar f tn At 12 weeks, you are not going to lose the baby from climbing stairs.
452066 tn?1400626877 and even continue to exercise the knee now. It is to the point where climbing stairs is near impossible and walking is becoming more painful as well as bending the leg. I was told that "down the road" a partial knee replacement may be needed. The inside of my knee is basically rubbing bone-on-bone, whereas the outside is normal.
Avatar f tn s also tender to touch, though not very swollen. Weirdly does not hurt while walking or climbing stairs...although descending stairs causes so pain. no clue what the deal is, prob should see a dr, but have no time. So could it be a fracture? I've just never had anything muscle related last this long or hurt this bad. Have to drag leg when the pain is very bad.
Avatar f tn 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. Please let me know what care I need to take. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Most pain is across the top of the knee cap and along the interior side of my knee. The pain is present while walking, climbing stairs and when I first stand after sitting for a long period of time. Additionally, if I stand for too long, my knee is extremely sore and stiff. The worst pain is that which wakes my in the middle of the night at least 1-2 times per week.
Avatar f tn I have recently heared by a friend that climbing stairs during pregnancy is not can cause abortion.Im worried bcz my room is upstairs. Is this true or just a myth? Has anybody such kind of experience ??
Avatar m tn its never been painful but now it feels like i am carrying a bag of fluid with me when i walk. also having problems walking and climbing stairs. what shall i do. have tried pain killers and voltarol(diclofenac) cream.. but nothing has helped. recently went to holidays in india and it became totally ok noswelling for 6 weeks but now back in london and its swollen again. my analysis if someone asks is that when i dont eat properly and stress out too much then the knee swells...
Avatar f tn I was playing hockey and a person dove into my left knee straight on. I finished the game and haven't missed one yet. I feel pain when climbing stairs and running and sometimes walking but not really that bad when skating. It was bruised and it hurts just below my knee cap. Don't know what it is.
Avatar n tn i was getting an awful pain in my knee when getting up from knelling down, also climbing stairs with the pain ,i could hear it creak.that was about three years comes back only when i go a few days without drinking goats milk.its too strong in tea first thing in morning.i have a glass for my dinner every day and in cornflakes once or twice a week. works for me .
Avatar n tn I find that swimming helps enormously as well as slow, steady walking. Initially, I found even climbing stairs to be difficult and used a walking stick and knee supports while waiting for my swimming to have an impact. Since then, I swim 5 times a week, for half an hour and that seems to help. It generally flares up with pain in winter, when I get lazy and don't swim as much, and when it is cold.
