Avatar f tn Im assuming its loose bodies/cartilage but im not sure if you can have those by the surface of your skin above the kneecap? What do you think this is and should I see a doctor for treatment? I hope this makes sense!
Avatar f tn The pain is localized, kind of like a pin *****-- feels more like it is in the skin as opposed to being a bone or joint issue. The pain is not illicited by any manual pressure, only the kneeling, which I do often enough that this has become very frustrating. Your advice in this matter would be very well appreciated. Thanks!
Avatar m tn m on it for a while the skin over the kneecap starts to feel tight and it also clicks sometimes and sometimes feels like the kneecap pops out or the bones are rubbing on the backside of it. It's hard to tell, but it still doesn't feel back to normal. There isn't really much pain anymore except for a slight burning feeling directly south of the kneecap and sometimes on the inner side. Also, on that spot directly south of the kneecap is what feels like a rubbery lump (swollen?
Avatar m tn I have 2 bumps on my butt and they itch and feels like I pooped myself. Also have small bumps on kneecap.
Avatar m tn s kind of like a football knee, the kneecap that is usually held against the bones by ligaments can pop out of the slot in the bone for a few steps before the ligaments put it back in again. If you can feel her kneecap and it's a bit loose, that also might tend to confirm it. Talk to her vet about it.
Avatar m tn The cartilage under your kneecap (patella) is a natural shock absorber. But it doesn't come with a lifetime guarantee. Overuse, injury or other factors may lead to a condition known as chondromalacia patella — a general term indicating damage to the cartilage under your kneecap. A more accurate term for chondromalacia patella is patellofemoral pain.
Avatar m tn Once, two years ago, was a quick dislocation of the kneecap - out and immediately back in - with some bruising of the bones. Last year I stretched an attachment of my MCL (?). My knee still hurts almost constantly. The pain moves around and is mainly around the medial, anterior, and lateral portions of the knee as well as directly on the kneecap. Every so often while walking I experience sharp and intense, but very short-lived bursts of pain on the lateral side of my knee.
Avatar n tn This condition causes fluid accumulation in the bursa just on top of the kneecap. Usually the fluid can be felt on top of the kneecap, rather than underneath the kneecap. Physical examination by doctor is necessary, to determine what fluid it is and depending upon that whether to remove the fluid or use antibiotics can be decided. All the best.
Avatar f tn Months ago I tripped landing on my kneecap. I had a superficial laceration where I landed. Then a few weeks ago my knee began to hurt, localized tenderness, pain, Weakness in thigh/leg, numbness in certain areas of the kneecap and balance issues . Lesions appeared, I thought I somehow got glass in my knee but what I came across is a white bony Substance imbedded in my knee. What could that be?
1417063 tn?1282107664 Swelling started right away and now it is impossible to walk. It feels as though my foot wants to seperate between the middle and ring toe. X rays are negative but something is going on because the swelling after two days is still increasing. At this point my foot has ballooned outrageous. It's worked it's way halfway up my leg. Is there something I could be missing? Two fulls days of ice packs and it's still on fire and growing.
Avatar n tn t had my post op appointment yet. I am having pain directly under my kneecap (at times - like a tweak) when my leg straightens - lying down or standing. It feels like it grinds against something and I rearrange my leg so that it goes away. I was given a full knee brace and haven't attempted walking without it. I'm scared it didn't work and this is not a normal post op recovery location/type of pain.
Avatar n tn I am a runner and have recently noted that my right kneecap is getting "jellyer". When I google searched it some results for Prepatelar Bursitis came up, but the pictures seem to drastic and there is no kneeling or trauma going on. It is not such a huge inflamation, its just that one kneecap is certainly squishier than the other one and progressively getting more and more. I know running is causing it, but I don't understand what's behind it. Also: no pain.
Avatar f tn Yesterday I somehow dislocated (what I think it is) my kneecap. Immediately after I put it back in place but it still hurts today. It's not an unbearable pain considering that I can walk pretty normal but I can't put too much weight on it. It wasn't swollen yesterday but I have a feeling it's a bit swollen now. I'm planning on going to a doctor in the morning but an advice or a heads up of what can I expect would be very helpful.
1532707 tn?1312155924 Today it feels like my left leg is on fire or at least that's the general way to put it. it hurts from my hip to my toes but walking makes it worse. it feels hotter than the other one like it may have fever? but i think my nerves are just hypersensitive/pissed off I don't think I actually have fever.. I knelt down earlier at it was almost like someone was cutting off my kneecap. where ever pressure is applied it goes crazy.
Avatar f tn Until it pops, I have awful pain that is on the inside on my knee and underneath my kneecap and sometimes I have shooting pain go from under my kneecap all the way up the center/middle of my thigh to my hip. My right hip is in the same position as my knee where I have to force it to pop to make the pain go away.
Avatar n tn Also, you can try to push the kneecap towards the interior of your legs a bit. Realigning the kneecap helps with the "popping" feeling.
Avatar n tn t stand up straight without it popping, so I have to position it just right when I stand up to avoid the sensation. And the whole knee joint feels very unstable. Like something is about to give. I'm 28 years old and I dislocated my right kneecap when I was 15 and then again at 17. I couldn't pop it back in and I had to be put under in order for them to get it back in. I have abnormal kneecaps to begin with, as my kneecaps are very high.
Avatar n tn So I put this in "heart conditions" but I really have no idea whatsoever what this might be. I'd really appreciate any advice any of you can give me!
Avatar f tn m sitting in the butterfly position the pain is in the same place but it extends to the front of my kneecap. i dont know what to do help!!
Avatar f tn So I have had this knee problem for 2 months. I exercise and had been doing "Insanity". I didn't have a specific moment I injured it. I jus noticed it getting painful over the course of a few days. I stopped exercise all together. I have some knee pain in a few different places around the kneecap and ITB and and uncomfortable "catching" sensation with every bend. I've went to 2 different doctors and had MRI and xray.
Avatar n tn That could cause the tooth to become loose and maybe this is why your bridge feels loose. How long have you had this bridge? A good bridge probably will last you about 7-10 years. Go see your dentist and they can take a x-ray of the tooth with the sore near it and see if there is an abcess forming. Maybe you could have a root canal to save the tooth and maybe us the bridge you have as a temporary until you save the money to get a new one made.
Avatar f tn t hit it on anything. I looked at it and it is a bit swollen on top of the kneecap. It is red on the top and a couple spots around the kneecap. Also it seems there may be a pocket of fluid on top of the kneecap. It is also warm to the touch. Does any one know what this could be?
Avatar f tn s kinda like someone took a piece of fabric and sewed it in inside my knee. It covers most of my kneecap and that inner part of my knee. I can't kneel without sharp pain in my kneecap. I've tried to talk to my doctor about it but she keeps telling me she doesn't know what it is but that I should leave it. She also said it'll either go away on its own or I'll have it the rest of my life. I'd really like to find out what it is!!
Avatar f tn Both my knees click, you can feel grinding when touching the kneecap, and the pain is usually under the kneecap on the inside of the knee. The pain is worse while bending the knee joint. Keeping it straight helps, but does not stop the pain. I've had x-rays and ct scans, revealing that my cartilage is fine, and my tendons are fine. Next step is an MRI. So what could be causing this long term cronic pain? Inflammation is common, and the area gets hot. My hips also suffer.
Avatar f tn This time, I am unable to bear much weight on the leg. When I attempt to bear weight, I have an intense amount of pressure right in the front of my kneecap. I also have a searing pain behind the kneecap. It is horrifically swollen and I have pockets of what feel like fluid all over the knee. Is this normal? I had an MRI on Thursday but haven't received a result yet. My next follow up is on the 11th & my doctor is extremely difficult to reach by phone.
