? Yes: if u hyperextended you knee before and had symptoms ( pain , seelling, 'looseness feeling') than the chances are definitely higher of it happening again; esp. if u are 'loose jointed' to begin with and then tore your ACL... See an experienced orthopedic surgeon for examination and diagnosis . Best of Luck! ...Read more

My 16 year old gets severe knee pain with swelling. It is completely random and not due to any injury or activity. Mother and sister have both been diagnosed with lupus.What should I do?

My 16 year old gets severe knee pain with swelling. It is completely random and not due to any injury or activity. Mother and sister have both been diagnosed with lupus.What should I do?

Not lupus!: Many people are diagnosed with lupus with positive anas and joint pain. Your son's presentation is quite atypical for sle. My instincts say he does not have sle, he is male and young, which in and of itself, quite rare. I suspect your son has not been seen by a doctor with rheumatology expertise. This is clearly not systemic lupus erythematosis. ...Read more

Front of knee pain with catching feeling yesterday, today, behind knee pain hard to walk..No recent injury..overweight..no swelling or redness..DVT?

Possibly: Unfortunately, even the physical exam looking for a DVT is only about 50 percent accurate. So if you do have posterior knee pain and particularly swelling in the leg, you may need to be seen for an ultrasound. You could very well not have a DVT, but having one is potentially life threatening. ...Read more

Knee sprain/strain: You will need to see an Orthopedist for an exam to determine stability.An MRI should reveal what structures are injured.I would suggest reducing strenuous activity that causes significant pain or swelling until diagnosis is made..Use 20 minutes of ice and an Ace bandage for acute swelling/pain.You may also take Tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain or Motrin/Aleve for pain/inflamation. ...Read more

Injuried knee for 2 month front/both sides of knee pain swelling front and back of knee, nerves in back of knee cause tingling in foot, can't bend kne?

Need an evaluation: You have a knee Ed fusion, and swelling in the back is a Baker cyst, and that is compressing on certain structures. There are other things I can mimic this. You need to have imaging, and evaluation, fluid removed from the knee, and a good idea of what the internal structural problems that may be compressing the nerve or vascular structures in the back of the knee ...Read more
