Avatar n tn When touching around the cap in the soft spots it hurts. When pushing centre of the cap it hurts also further up top of cap hurts. Getting shooting pains up thigh and numbness when sitting, a cold feeling. It's been 2 days now yesterday it was hard to walk around without a limp to keep off of it. In the past I have hit it on a couple things fairly hard as I am a labourer.
Avatar m tn have a knot on knee cap when to doc. 1974 said it was like munchhousen something and not the one for women doc.
Avatar m tn I'm 16 and for the past year I've had knee issues. I work at a library and shelve books so there's a lot of crouching and knee sitting. Last year I had gotten a huge bruise on my knee cap that covered nearly my entire cap. My doctor said that it was fine and that I just needed to do more physical activity. I started dance and I feel like it's just aggravating my knees more. I just noticed today that I hve a small shiner on my right knee.
Avatar n tn the next morning i couldnt walk on it the it gradually got better through the week then i went to a skatepark yesterday and when jumping off something it came back it wasnt fully healed yet anyway but it is swollen about 1/2 the size of my knee cap and hurts when i squat, or do things that put pressure on it. Its a hard swollen knot.
Avatar m tn Last wk I was playing basketball and when I came down from jumping I had a real sharp pain in my knee and could not continue. Around the top of my knee cap is tender and hurts and when I put pressure on my knee getting out the car or anything I get sharp tack like pains under my knee cap and sometimes on the side of my knee and it aches a little, I have really slight swelling but I am able to walk. What do you think it is and what should I do?
Avatar f tn Hi everyone, I fell Christmas 2015 running for a train and fell on a large concrete step straight onto my right knee cap. It was cut and badly bruised at the time but over a year later I can't kneel on that area of my knee without it hurting badly I'd say 9/10 pain rating. When I put pressure on it with my fingers it also hurts. The location of the pain is under my knee cap. I've recently started running which mostly just makes the area stiff.
Avatar f tn Hi. . If you had recently fallen and hurt your knee, you might have had a bleeding inside your joint and collection of blood in the joint space along with some fracture. I would advise you to immediately see an orthopedician and get an x-ray or a MRI of the affected joint done. Please do not ignore it.
Avatar n tn i dislocated my knee. This is my third time doing it. I have noticed that my knee cap is very loose and it still hurts and cramps up when i bend it and stand up. Also, when i am walking my knee gives out. It has been almost a week since the incodent. should i see a doctor. 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.
Avatar f tn t done anything (knowingly) to injure it. The pain is below my knee cap where it meets the shin bone. It only hurts when in motion...walking or using stairs, or anytime I have my weight on it. I have to limp because the pain hurts so much. Some days are worse than others; some times there is very little pain. When sitting down there is no pain, and I can move my leg around with no pain while sitting. My knee pops occasionally but nothing new.
Avatar f tn The pain occurs mostly above the knee cap and slightly along both sides. I have never had any knee injuries nor do I remember injuring it prior to when the pain began. I made a doctor's appt for February 22nd but it seems to be getting worse and i'm not sure if I will be able to handle the pain. I have minimal swelling above the knee cap but no redness, warmth or presence of a fever.
Avatar m tn I have a hard boney bump on the outer side of my left knee cap. I only started to notice the bump after I've increased my running miles. The bump has only recently started to give me pain while I'm active. It is not painful to touch, but it hurts really bad when I climb stairs or bend my knee. What could be the problem?
Avatar f tn Today while running up the stairs I fell and landed on my left knee, it has three small bruises (inner side) about an inch from the knee cap, although the whole area hurts, it's not all bruised... is it something I should worry about?

Avatar m tn Just got back from a docs appt and a bit confused I had several ligament tears at a young age and at 36 had a ACL procedure with the patella tendon- since my first injury ( a patella fracture and ligament tears ) my knee has been prone to collapsing- the docs all these years said it was due to pain and muscle flexing- now last two docs have noted that my Patella has severe arthritis and much smaller ( worn away ) than my other knee.
Avatar f tn Yesterday I was photographing a wedding and I kneeled down and as soon as my knee hit the ground I had a severe pain just below my knee. It felt like I was kneeling right on my bone and something was stabbing it. I got up and seemed okay. About 30 minutes later just below my knee started to throb and swell. I now have a lump about 2 inches below my knee cap and it is swollen and extremely painful. It is warm to touch and slightly red and bruised.
Avatar f tn my knee hurts when i bend it. i can still walk but it hurts. i haven't hit my leg on anything, i thought maybe it could be my new tempurpedic matress, but it is only my knee. the pain is increasing every day. any ideas?
Avatar f tn I feel like the inside of my knee is on fire, sometimes when I walk it feels like someone is pulling down and my knee, and I cant bend it. It cracks and I hear a loud click at random times. the pain is sometimes barable, but can get to be excrutiating where I just want to sie!! I cant sleep because every position I get into hurts. What could it be?
Avatar f tn with extreme stabbing pain in which I come very close to falling. No known injuries. Compared to other knee the knee cap looks to be double in size. Full extension even when sitting can Bring on the stabbing pain.
Avatar n tn the most I can bend is like 90 degrees, after that, I feel a bad pull in my quadriceps muscles. My quadriceps muscles have swollen just above my knee cap. There is no color or pain. It is just that I feel a bad pull when I bend my knee, its swollen, difficult to walk because of the knee bending problem, there is no pain on the swollen part, but it hurts my quadriceps muscles when I try to bend my knee. Please give me a solution to this problem. I will be more than grateful.
Avatar f tn Whenever I touch it or bruxh it against something I get a bad pain in the side of my knee. Seems odd that an injury on the front of the knee cap and cause such pain on the side. Looking for any info, please help. Thank you.
Avatar m tn Hello, the last few months, ive had pain above my knee cap, if i press on the muscle or tendor that seems to attach to the top of the knee cap, it is quite sore right where it connects to the knee cap, and when walking its ok, but stairs it really is sore, sitting down and getting up, kneeling. Ive tried applying heat to it, then stretching, then applying ice going for walks, stretching, seems to give temporary releif.
Avatar f tn Only ONE knee hurts? Which part of your knee hurts? Front, back or sides of knee cap? It only hurts WHILE you run? What is the end result when you are done? Shaking after you run is not uncommon and is usually a sign you were running on empty during your practice. It's the after affect of that. Lactic acid builds up. Do you do anything for recovery? My son's coach instructs them to drink a bottle of chocolate milk for recovery post run.
Avatar f tn I had an x-ray that shows a minor lateral patella tracking but my knee cap does not hurt. I have had this for a year, what can I do to fix this and go back to sport?
Avatar f tn m sitting and move it a certain way i cannot make them go straight without pain and then a pop. Also when I ice skate or roller blade the medial side of my left knee cap hurts and the lateral side of my right one, what does this mean if anything?
Avatar f tn I also massage my knee and move my knee cap around in tiny circles to unpinch nerves.
