Kneecap support

Common Questions and Answers about Kneecap support


Avatar f tn When I would kneel On my right knee it felt like there was glass under my kneecap. One day I decided to go ahead and Kneel hard on it and roll my kneecap around, enduring the pain. I envisioned that a Crystal had formed in my kneecap and it just needed to be crushed and then my body could absorb it. After that the pain vanished and never returned so my guess must’ve been correct.
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?
1551327 tn?1514045867 :D thanks guys!! :) Last year when i was a few months into dealing with the painkiller addiction (with the treatment of suboxone) I slipped over on a dirty floor in a shopping centre and cracked my knee cap!...The knee i had 2 previous surgeries on :S Hence why i went from about 75kg's up to 122kg's was a really difficult time mentally and emotionally with the addiction process let alone a cracked kneecap too and painkillers weren't an option ...
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 m tn t have any insurance, but I went to a doctor anyway. He pulled on my leg a little and moved the kneecap around a bit and took an xray. He said there was nothing broken and that I probably bruised the tendon and gave me anti inflammatory meds. I wasn't given really any advice on what to do with it after the appointment for recovery and it just seemed like maybe they wanted me out of there. upon leaving they gave me a foam knee brace and sent me on my way.
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.
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 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.
2115734 tn?1334546847 For X number of months (where X can be 3, or 4, or 5 or maybe even 6), I have no physical pain in the RIGHT knee. When OA (osteoarthritis) physical pain starts under the kneecap of the RIGHT knee, I do quad sets for Y number of consecutive days (where Y can be 4, or 5, or 6 or 7 consecutive days) and the physical pain ends again for X number of months. I'd like to swim but know that with no external support around the RIGHT knee there's physical pain while swimming.
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 m tn Playing as a goalkeeper, I suffered quite a few abrasions (not exactly bleeding badly though) on my kneecap. I would like enquire - what are the chances of getting HIV if my kneecap came into contact with my opponent's leg (assuming he had some cuts as well)? Although I don't recall colliding into him, but during the game, some form of contact could have occurred. This is worrying me as this guy has quite a liberal sex life and I am not sure of his HIV status.
Avatar f tn It appears as dark bruising across my whole kneecap. It does not cause a lot of pain, just a mild ache here and there. It is not a result of bumping the knee. It seems to happen if I have been kneeling, even in church. I never know when it will occur. Sometimes I get a strange mild cold sensation in the knee or occasionally, a quick sharp pain. I am not having any trouble walking, and I do not have constant pain when it happens.
Avatar f tn In the last few days, I have felt a burning, almost tearing-like sensation in my left kneecap. Oddly, it comes and goes. I can kneel down and feel the sensation, likewise if I press my finger directly on the kneecap I can feel the sensation. The leg can be straight or bent and the sensation can occur. No problem walking, running, no side knee problems. Likewise, at times, the pain is non-existent in the same postions/situations. Do not recall bumping it, however could have. Anyway, really odd.
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 Also have small bumps on kneecap.
Avatar n tn Both are horribly painful, but generally, if you straighten your leg fully, a dislocated kneecap will go back in and only feel sore..A dislocated knee joint will be swollen, and you probably won't be able to bear weight on it without someone helping you walk...If it is just your kneecap, at the very least, I'd get a elastic knee brace until I could see an orthopedic doctor...
Avatar n tn Almost every night I have pain in my knee right above the kneecap. It's an intense tight, pinching feeling, very hard to ignore when I'm laying or sitting down, but when I'm moving/standing up it eases. I don't feel it throughout the day, only when I lay down at night some days. It doesn't make a difference keeping the leg straight or bent, and heating pads don't help much either.
Avatar n tn Hello all, I posted here a few weeks back about my doctor not treating the knee pain I was having. Well, I went and got a second opinion. My new doctor said there were some interesting things going on, including the fact that it seems my kneecap doesn't move. She said in most cases when someone pushes on the kneecap, it gives a little, moving and whatnot. It seems that, for some reason, my kneecap doesn't move at all; she said it "fused" to my femur bone.
Avatar n tn You need to have strong quads in order to support your ACL. Without the strengthening for your quad and VMO- which is on the inside aspect of your kneecap- you won't be able to do squats or straight leg raises very well and your kneecap won't track correctly in the groove on the femur (thighbone) and that will cause pain because it will rub and snap back and forth when it is going in and out of that groove. Strengthen those quads!! Best of luck!
Avatar n tn I am 65 and I have exactly the same symptom. A tiny hard knot under the skin on top of my kneecap that I can push all around on the kneecap. Very strange. Does anyone have any ideas?
Avatar f tn The patella is the medical term for kneecap in layman's terms. Cartilage irregularity can be due to trauma, degenerative changes (wear and tear), and/or lack of movement. Please see your PCP +/- ortho consult.
