Common Questions and Answers about Knee support in bed


Avatar f tn m 56, had 2 meniscus tears repaired on left knee 02/09 and 3 repaired on right knee 12/09. I also have arthritis in both knees (over 50%) and both ankles (not as severe). I will be doing a lot of traveling this summer, lots of airports; does an orthopaedic boot support both knee and ankle? I use Voltaren gel and take Tramadol twice a day.
Avatar f tn Wrap the knee with ace bandage or black knee support until u can get to the doc. does your knee crack? Take ibuprofen as directed for swelling. Hope you can get to the ER or doc soon.

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 n tn Hi all, I am not sure why I am writing down all this. I guess I am looking for some support. It's been almost 5 months now since my high risk exposure. The anxiety gets worse and worse, so I finally decided to go back to my home country to do the final test. I've been tested negative after one week and 39 days. It didn't really give me much relieve. rather the opposite: I got so anxious that I couldn't go to a further test.
Avatar f tn I could not lift my knee on to the stool, had to do it manually and once in bed had to stop in that position,cause any movement was agony.Once home i bought a knee support and hoped with time it would improve. By dec the knee was still swollen and i was unable to completely bend or straighten the knee,still tender on the inside so much so i slept with a pillow between my knees and still unable to turn over in bed, so i went to my GP who reffered me straight away to a o/s.

Avatar m tn I had pain in the right calve muscle below the knee and the lower calve due to excessive streching about 3 weeks ago. The pain and uncomfort forced me to see a doctor who advised that I strained the calve muscle and had to use crutches. When I stand on the leg, it seems to swell slightly and the veins stands out and swells, particularly below the knee on the front inside of the calve and once I take the pressure off the leg and relax it the vein swelling subsides.
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.
1148201 tn?1262165258 I was on my way home from work and a driver who forgot the road rules cut over a traffic light and wiped me and my mint ZZR 400 K that was fully restored out. That put me in a hospital bed for 4 months. My pelvis was plated bones are mended and I have healed to the point where all life threatening problems are over and can now have my knee fixed but have found it to be a way more serious thing than expected.
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 s what she has. In the meantime the fever keeps going and unless she takes ibuprofen she will just lay in bed moaning and complaining. Even with the medicine she still does not walk. We are ready for the disease to either go away to never come back (best case) or for a doctor to give us a diagnosis and a treatment that makes our little star better. I know this is all very generic but is there anyone in this community with clues to our puzzle?
Avatar m tn When i am sitting on a chair and i straighten my left leg the pain occurs, and there must be something wrong because my right knee is fine. I also get the pain when i am lying in bed. The pain is most apparent when i lift my left knee cap, you know how you can tense or whatever and your knee cap will move up.sometimes along with the pain i get twitching in my knee, i dont know what it is that twitches, but sometimes its rapid twitching that passes quickly.

Thank you This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/200999'>Unexplained pain in left leg</a>.
Avatar f tn I have this clicking or may I say popping sound when ever I put weight of my left knee, or even if I am laying in bed when I straighten out my leg, it seems to make this sound. It really doesn't hurt, just a little uncomfortable. If I place my hand on my knee and swing my leg forward a bit, I can actually feel the bones rubbing and clicking against each other.
Avatar f tn Does anyone have tips to getting comfy in bed. My back is hurting. im 10 weeks and sore. No cramping or misscarriage. I guess being moody dosnt help and neither does my bf snoring and taking up most of our king size bed. But please some good tips would make my day.
5987839 tn?1381922502 I have spasticity in my legs - I take Baclofen in the morning, and before bed to keep it under control. My right knee is about to get an MRI, but I know there is at the least a torn meniscus and I am facing surgery. My MS is NOT happy with that leg! The spasticity has gotten so bad in that leg ... it feels like there is a grip on my leg from above my knee, to halfway down my calf, making it difficult to walk .... in addition to the pain and mobility issues in my knee.
Avatar f tn Hello everyone, My name is Tamika a 16 year old who has recently joined MedHelp seeking advice about a knee injury that i have had for quite a while. On the 23rd of August 2011 I injured my knee during a PE exercise in which we had to carry classmates across the field while running. I had to carry a girl who was heavier than me and while running it felt as if my knee had snpped back and I fell to the floor due to the pain and instability of my knee.
Avatar f tn hey kavi,how are you?i first of you need to increase on your muscle strength,dothe following use a warm water towel and follow it with massage of your knees statics for your quadriceps(pushing your knees down), full range of movement for the knees in supine lying(lying on your back),sitting on the edge of the bed,later use 1kg weight and perform the bending and straightening of the legs, reduce on walking because you have to stay from aggravating factors.
Avatar f tn See your chiropractor, seriously, I have a knee that does that, he works on it and it is fine. In the mean time, try wearing a knee brace to give it support.
Avatar n tn the pain was so bad tho that i couldnt even get outta bed to goto the bathroom.. my husband had to help me and i was in tears the whole time because it felt like someone had a knife in my butt and was twisting it. i dont believe that this pain is due to the sciatic nerve because the pain is not in my back and has not shot to my legs at all. its just in the center of my butt cheek.
Avatar f tn about 4 months ago when I got out of bed my upper leg joints on both sides were hurting so bad that I could barely walk , and also my knees were hurting me . After 2 weeks of this I went to a Dr. who said that it might be a viral thing? The pain did get alittle better , but when I sit for just a short while, when I walk my upper leg joints and knees still hurt badly.....
Avatar n tn they do hurt some even when I am standing or sitting, but not as bad as when i start to sit down. I have had 2 back surgeries..the last in 2004. I have gained about 30 pounds in the last year. I have never had knee problems, and am wondering if it could be coming from my back .
Avatar f tn I have arthritis in my knee and in my left foot - but think it is also now in my hip. I was taking percocet for pain but have tried to get off them as I feel I was getting addicted. Right now I am looking for advice - the bottom of my left foot hurts and aches... is there anything you can put in your shoes or on your foot to lessen the pain? It's not swollen, and I don't really want a store bought insert because then it makes it too high for my foot.
Avatar n tn I have done this before with no problems when I was in High school but after standing for roughly 30 minutes I was in a lot of pain at my knee and radiating down my lower leg. I recently suffered a nasty fall of a horse and landed almost totally on my right knee. I have also been fallen on (by the horse) four times over the last 10 or so years the mpst recent one coming a week after the nasty fall.
