Common Questions and Answers about Swollen knee symptoms


Avatar f tn Have you gained a lot of weight? Maybe you just slept wrong and or over extended it?
Avatar f tn Should therapy be done while there is still effusion in the knee. Also the left knee is acting up as well. The right knee was very warm and very swollen. 3 doctors and no treatment except for doxicyline for 3 weeks back in Sept. The infectious disease doctor said I have big knee joints and the Lymes doctor verified that I have Lymes with no further treatment than being tested for it in 4 months.
Avatar n tn 00 I looked at my left knee and is it all swollen above the knee cap and on the right side and it hurts to move it.(it's my left knee). I have done nothing to injure myself. Is this just symptoms of anemia or could it be something completely different..
Avatar n tn Hi Carla, You have a nice name and you are pretty young too. Your symptoms of pain with dramatic history of knee swelling and redness suggests either it is ligament tear or meniscus injury. Further more your symptom of feeling locked at joints adds to the diagnosis of meniscus injury as locking and catching are characteristic of meniscus injuries. I think it is indeed meniscus injury of your knee causing the symptoms. Have you consulted any doctor? Is yes, what does he have to say for this?
Avatar n tn 6-8 weeks postpartum, I developed severe swelling in first my left knee, and then a few months later my right knee. The swelling was at one point so bad that I could not bend my knees and I had to attend PT to regain some range of motion. After several months it was discovered my TSH was 29. My dosage was increased and now I am on 100 mcg of Synthroid--and my knees have since improved. (I have also had carpal tunnel symptoms off and on, but less severe since my meds have been adjusted).
Avatar f tn Hypo symptoms are back. Now up a total of 9 lbs. Swollen tender knee is back - first time this happened was a year ago. More blood work being done.

Avatar f tn What if arthritis doesn't run in the family? Can the cause of your joint, knee, feet and bone pain plus the chills, sweats and fatigue be caused by Arthritis?
Avatar f tn She is a 68 y/o African American female. January 21st, she had total knee replacement surgery to her right knee. She stayed in the phys rehab center for 8 days post-op, and was fine. The surgeon sent her home with oxycodone for pain management. She only took it 3 days because she developed hives and swollen lips. We attributed this to an oxycodone reaction. However, it is now 3 months later, and the hives have not subsided. They are manageable with prednisone and other antihistamines.
Avatar f tn After arthroscopic surgery 8 months ago, I developed a swollen area under my right knee slightly to the left from my vantage pt.It is sore and is still swollen. 2" x1 1/2" What is this sack and will it ever leave? I also have a Baker's cyst in back of my knee which is under control.
Avatar f tn I play football, but i have found recently that i am unable to bend my left knee for long periods of time without a dull (like it is swelling) sensation occurs and becomes uncomfortable.(swelling not very visible). i also find that my foot and ankle appear to be slightly swollen but not sore. can these be linked??? if so could it be causing more damage by continuing to play on it..
Avatar n tn It is swollen, very sore on the outer side of my knee and I can hardly bend then knee. Can you give me any advise?
Avatar n tn Hi. About 3 or 4 weeks ago I slipped and hit my knee on a hardwood floor. It became swollen and bruised, but the bruising is going away, but there is still swelling from the lower part of my knee cap to the top of my shin. I don't have trouble walking or any movement. The only time it hurts is when i have to bend down on my knee and it touches the floor or if anything touches the knee. It sends a sharp pain through my whole leg that I just cant stand.
Avatar f tn But then up and pain subsided. Possibly knee cap moved back in place. Now then in morning knee lil swollen, pain when walking, no bending or squatting which would lead my proffessional opinion to be you over streched tendons, possibly a slight tear. Use an ice pack for 2 days twice a day 30 mins each. No more weights till Friday. If everything returns to normal leave the squats out for an additional week. However by this Friday if knee is still the same, go see family doctor.
Avatar f tn I have had both knees replaced several years ago In March I fell on a tiled floor striking my left knee which became swollen and painfu At the ER was told i had a bad contusion My knee is still swollen and tender with a burning The ortho dr can't seen to find what's wrong but the workman comp dr suggest i may have fluid pressing on a nerve...........
Avatar f tn I have had 3 surgeries on my right knee for a torn meniscus but for some reason I still have knee pain. My last surgery was in 2008 and ever since then my knee still remains swollen and in pain. In the past few days my knee has been hurting more that usual especially if I do not bare weight on it. I am on Ibuprofen 600 for pain management but it is not working. I've iced, elevated, and rested my knee, but the pain and swelling has not subsided. Should I go see a doctor?
Avatar f tn These patients would usually report a deceleration injury or twisting the knee that led to immediate symptoms of swelling and pain. Further your symptoms of pain while kneeling down and release of symptom when you are standing or lying suggests that it might be Patello-femoral disorders. I think you should be doing X-rays, including AP, lateral, and sunrise views of your knee joint.
Avatar n tn Could the awkwardness off walking on it also of caused injury to my left knee as it is now swollen and painful. I can't make it straight. I'm due to go back to work tomorrow after workers comp for my ankle but I dont know what to do right now. Thanx for any help.
Avatar n tn If the patient has a ligament injury, the patient will report a deceleration injury or twisting the knee that led to immediate symptoms of swelling and pain. In fact, 30 to 50% of patients will report actually hearing a “pop” at the time of injury. Your symptom of locking and catching are characteristic of meniscus injuries. Are there any positions that make your knee more or less comfortable? What is the quality of your pain (sharp, shooting, dull, etc.)?
1744364 tn?1311784084 Right before Thanksgiving 2010 I received another cortisone shot in my left knee and one in my right knee. Fast forward to May 2011. I went to see a doctor that works at the same clinic I work at. I got two shots in each knee during separate appointments. He also ordered an MRI of my right knee and wouldn't order an MRI of my left knee even though I asked. The results of that MRI showed a possible 50% ACL tear along with "water on the knee.
Avatar m tn The best treatment, presently for Osteoarthritis , is Total knee replacement.Can you upload her knee X-rays on the photo section, so that i will be able to comment on that.
Avatar n tn I went to my medical dr who sent me for an x-ray. Nothing is fractured in my knee, and she wants me to see an orthopedic doctor, for further evaluation and possible MRI. I am going to call tomorrow for an appointment. The only problem, tomorrow is Friday and I am in PAIN!! The only releif I get in applying ice. There was no recent trama to my knee. I think it is just from wear and tear of playing sports and dancing when I was a kid (I'm now 32).
Avatar n tn About 3 days ago I hit my knee on a bleacher right under my knee-cap and it is swollen and warm when I place my hand on it.Looks red at the area ofcource but was wanting to know is this something that I should be seen immediately or can I treat it at home.
