My knee joint hurts

Common Questions and Answers about My knee joint hurts


Avatar n tn Since then the pain has got better but still isn't gone. So I finally decided to get an MRI of my knee that I had to pay for from my pocket, as the insurance didn't cover it. Here is the link for the result from the MRI: . It says something about an effusion which I don't really understand, as English is my second language.
Avatar m tn Hi there! Locked knee can be caused by mechanical obstruction to joint movement like meniscal tears, fractured fragments, loose bodies, patellar displacement, muscular issues etc. or as a reaction to pain which can again have a number of secondary causes. Without an evaluation and probably a few tests it would be difficult to point out a single cause. It would be best to get this evaluated by an orthopedician. After a cause is diagnosed, it can be managed accordingly. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? People who have a swollen knee can either have fluid within the knee joint itself, or in the surrounding soft tissue. The first step in determining the cause of the fluid accumulation is to determine where the fluid is located. Fluid in the knee could be due to acute or chronic injuries. In your case I think it is a chronic process and the possible causes could be arthritis or infection or gout.

Avatar n tn My daughter has terrible knees, and she walks around all day with a knee brace on... her knee gives out any time that she bears weight, but she can still walk without terrible pain. She says that it still hurts extremely bad when she walks on it, but the pain is bearable. Do you think I should take her to the doctor? We've been icing and elevating her knee now for the 3 days that she has begun to complain about her knee. What do you think I should do?
Avatar n tn however the pain isn't there anymore, but the inflamation is, and it feels like theres something floating in my knee, it hurts only when im on my knee's. Problem number 2, about 8 days ago, I have been having pain in my upper back and neck, and it was causing headaches. The pain has gotten better since then with the help of pain killers and rest. Problem number 3, about 4 days ago I had intercourse with my girl and when we finished I had burning pain in my prostate region.
Avatar f tn I'm on shot #5 and have noticed the same thing. It hurts from my waist to the bottom of my feet, but I'm not sure if it is joint pain or what... just everything seems to hurt. It isn't quite as bad as it was the first couple of weeks. I have found that if I take 400 mg of Ibuprofen when I first start to notice the pain that it clears it up in about 15 minutes... just don't wait until the pain is real bad because it takes a lot longer to clear it if you do.
Avatar f tn He told me to cut down on the number of reps for my exercises and to continue icing my knee. After about two weeks of physical therapy, and still seeing no improvement, I began to experience the same exact pain in my left knee. This obviously confused me because I was pretty much inactive minus my PT exercises yet I was having the same horrible pain in my left knee now. I told my physical therapist who instructed me to now do the exercises on both my knees.
1310435 tn?1273601677 How overweight are you? Joint point is not a common symptom of PCOS, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's not linked somehow. Your joints will hurt if your carrying allot of excess weight. I guess it's different for everybody. I'm overweight, and I never suffer from any joint point...which always shocks my doctors. I'm thinking you might have another issue on your hands, and this may not be related to PCOS at all.
Avatar n tn randomly different joints hurts, sometimes fingure, sometimes knee, sometimes ankle, sometime the plam of hands. never had that before.sometimes I feel like my ribs, sometimes hips: if I imagine a horizental clock on my wase and the center to be my spinal cord and 12 is pointing the front pain is around 7 or 8. CBC was normal, I have taking a urine test as the last part of the STDs but the results are not back yet.
Avatar m tn old and since last summer I have been waking up in the morning with joint pain. My elbow joints, hip, and knee joints are all painful. And I have this tired weak feeling so it takes me awhile to get out of bed. The meds I am taking are : Nexium 40mg. twice a day, Amlodipine Bensylate 5mg. once a day, Trilipix 135mg. once a day and Ibuprofen 600mg. when needed. Pravastatin Sodium 40mg. once a day and Alprazolam 1mg. twice a day.
1823499 tn?1370093889 I woke up this morning and my left knee has been hurting everytime i move it or put pressure on it to walk. What the heck. If its not one thing its another. This has been happening for as long as i can remember. Sometimes it feels like a constant toothache in my elbow since i was a kid. I also tried to finish painting this morning but couldnt hold my hands still enough. Ever have this issue? For me its getting worse.
Avatar n tn I have to say that, going only by what I see on this forum since my SVR in April 2009, one of the most common complaints of residual effects after treatment is joint pain. My physician's diagnosis is arthritis. Maybe I would have gotten arthritis anyway but the fact remains I didn't have any arthritis prior to treatment and I have very noticeable arthritis now to the point where it hurts my knees quite a bit to lift myself out of a chair and hurts going down stairs.
Avatar n tn My 10 year old daughters knee was injured due to a fall and healed to my knowledge. A few weeks later she was walking fast and her knee made a popping sound and swelled up. It hurts on the outer side of the of knee. Two weeks have past and xrays show nothing. Know her knee hurts mostly when she stands or walks, pops when she bents it, her hip pops know, her wrist even pops.She is due to have an MRI, But I do not understand why her other joints are having trouble.
694979 tn?1232316978 i get headaches, my joints have started getting really stiff in the last 6+ months which also only makes the pain worse. i have pain in every joint except my jaw but i have NO inflammation or swelling. my joints have started popping every time i move; big loud pops. bright lights and loud noises bother me, i have ringing in my ears. i have problems remembering and concentrating.
Avatar n tn The muscles above the knee is where it really hurts and somewhat to the outside and behind the knee. The doc called it a knee sprain, but because my knee feels stable i havent got an mri. My question is whether or not the injury sounds severe and how i can speed up recovery time.
Avatar f tn It is excrusiating. Do you have any clue what this may be? It hurts primarily in the middle of my knee and right on top of and below my knee cap.
Avatar m tn A few weeks ago I twisted my left knee laterally while my foot was planted ( in a hole ) and my weight was going forward. Now I have a sharp, stinging pain in my left knee just below the patella, at the tibial head on the lateral side when I get on my knees or put pressure on the joint. At first I had no other symptoms, but now the knee hurts when I walk or keep it flexed for a prolonged period, and it also feels unstable.
314833 tn?1263263099 Good Morning Ladies, I just have one question this morning, does any one get really bad pain Knee Pain right before the period? Mine is awful, It hurts to walk and move my knees. Does anyone have any ideas to get rid of this does go away after couple of days but the pain is awful.
Avatar n tn i'm 23, flat feet and i'm having the same problem as you; only hurts when i put the ankle of my leg on the knee of the other... as my ankle hangs naturally in this position the pain is there however if i lift my ankle with my hand the pain subsides... this has been an issue for me for awhile now and i have no answers... anyone?
Avatar n tn in all my joints, i have had 33 joint surgeries in the past 14 years, i had a have a knee replacement 3 years ago, and still can not walk, squat, crawl, and it still hurts, it needs to be fulley replaced, both knees do, how do i know what knee is best for me, there are so many, and how do i know the doc. can do it correctely, so tired of trying docs. who do not fix the problem the first time. so tried of the surgeries.
Avatar n tn For about a week now I have been getting a knee cramp in my left knee joint. I feel trembling and one second into the trembling I feel pain similar to when you get Charlie horse cramp in your leg, instead right in the knee.
Avatar n tn You likely have bruised meniscus. These are the shock absorbers in the knee (two per knee, medial and lateral, medial inside, lateral outside). Good policy is to give every muscle and joint one day of rest for every day practicing/training. You can work out every day, but work different things. Wait 3 days and if it still hurts see a doctor. Skip your PCP if you can and go to an Ortho. Sounds to me like you'll be fine with rest...
Avatar m tn When i do most activities like walking up and downstairs, lunges, and even walking sometimes i get a sharp pain as if im sticking a thick nail into the center of my knee cap down into my knee. It hurts to the point that i have to stop and stretch it out constantly. it is always swollen pops alot of times when im walking i can feel a bubble forming and i have to stop and kick like im kicking a soccer ball and it pops loudly and hurts for a second but then feels better.
Avatar n tn hi ya, im having problems with my right knee after i was told i had tear in cartilidge i had key hole surgry to repair this and have had phsyio since, after my op i had another fall and have been in alot pain ever snice the doctor iv seen as told me there is nothing wrong with my knee but i can not bend my knee at all and 95% of the time my knee is really swallen and brused. im in a hinged splint at the mo.
Avatar n tn I just went to my dr and he said my MRI showed degeneration of my meniscus but no tear. Could I still have a tear thatit didnt show. He also said it that my kneecap isnt tracking right and it sounds like that is what he really thinks it is. He gave me a cortisone shot and said to call in a week and tell him if it worked. I cant walk without a limp and it hurts to put pressure on it and by the time I get home from work Im almost crying from tha pain.
Avatar n tn If I leave my knee bent too long It starts to ache. then I try to straighten it out it hurts a bit then I feel and hear a pop. Then the pain and ache goes away. What could this be?
Avatar f tn Around 3 weeks ago I fell on my left knee. It wasn't a terrible fall but it did hurt. Well, there was no swelling, no bruising, no scrape, no blood, nothing. I can walk fine without pain even. The problem is occationally when something rubs against my knee the pain is intense! It feels like I have a really bad scrape there. I can rub and touch my knee but it does not hurt then. I can't imagine what is going on!!! It is so strange to have something that hurts so bad with no other signs.
