Avatar m tn Weakness of the muscles on the inside of the thigh or tightness of the outer muscle can throw off the alignment of the kneecap," says Lyle Micheli, M.D., director of the Sports Medicine Division at Boston Children's Hospital and associate clinical professor of orthopedic surgery at Harvard Medical School.

Avatar f tn During the surgery, he did the lateral release, found a crack in her cartlidge and a blister under the kneecap from the kneecap rocking in and out all the time. He said her knees were like a 18-20 year olds. She had the surgery at 9:15 am and we were on our way home by 12:20 pm the same day. She had a nerve block so she couldn't feel the leg for about 2 days. We stopped at Cracker Barrel on the way home for lunch and she acted like she never even had surgery.

Avatar m tn As soon as I thought it was almost healed about a week later it started getting worse every day and I was now limping on it. The beginning of the day would start out fine, but once I walked around on it for a while it would start to hurt. I felt unstable on it and it constantly felt like there was bubbles in it moving around when I walked. I went on like this for another week and a half before going to a doctor. I don't have any insurance, but I went to a doctor anyway.
Avatar f tn I bruised my meniscus in my knee and threw my kneecap out of alignment due to a fall. I have been on Hydrocodine 500mg 2 tablets 2x a day.

I did read Thomas's receipe and I cannot afford anything but klonipin and bannanas. I really need advice on what to expect for withdraw and what steps I need to take to combat my symptoms..
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 n tn In the past, vision therapy has been used to treat a number of problems that it cannot help. However, I believe that it can be effective in treating eye misalignment, at least in some cases. It was my strabismus surgeon who gave me my computerized vision therapy program to try out before I decided on surgery.
1164675 tn?1264270214 I was very much aware of the risks since I am a fourth year medical student but I decided to undergo surgery any way! my prescription was (-L2.50 - R2.00) the second day after Lasik I developed blurred and double vision in my left eye, my right eye vision is good. when i cover my right eye i see double images, but when i open it my vision gets a little spooky, better but it feels like one eye is taking over the other or something. just weird!
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 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?
Avatar f tn It hurts just underneath my kneecap slightly to the left, also swollen, and a little in the kneecap itself. The thing is, the pain isn't constant and doesn't always prevent me from doing things. It hurts and stiffens up whilst going downstairs, walking down inclined ground or walking for a period of time. I don't know whether it is worth getting it checked out or not because the pain is only dull, just quite frustrating.
Avatar f tn The MRI shows the beginning of arthritic changes, but I still have a good cushion between the bones.

Avatar n tn Check with a chiropractic to see if your ribs are out of alignment or you have some sort of arthritis. When ribs are out of alignment or out of joint, it can be really painful. If the rib next to your heart is out of joint, it can be dangerous. See if a chiropractor can help.
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 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 n tn I have a feeling that this may mean something bad! please help me out. My mom needs to know if i am in need of medical help! Thank you.
