Sudden Knee Pain Without Injury
I'm 16 and for over a year I've had bad knee pain that comes and goes, the pain is on the sides and top of the knee and I've had no injury in the past?
May need eval.: It's hard to say what's going on without more information. How long has the pain been present? Is there any visible swelling, warmth, or redness? Is there locking or giving way? Are there other symptoms such as rash, fever, diarrhea, etc? Are any other joints involved? If the problem is new and the answer to the other questions is no, I would try a little rest and simple pain medicine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: If you just twisted your knee during tennis and cannot continue then i would ice the knee, wrap it and elevate it. If the pain passes quickly and you can run, plant and pivot to hit balls then yes by all means stretch a little first.

Seek treatment soon as a displaced (bucketed) meniscus should be treated urgently. ...Read more

Uncertain see peds: You need to see your pediatrician to see if your child needs a rheumatology or orthopedic evaluation. Since she is otherwise active and has no other limitations I suspect it is physiologic and no inflammatory joint disease. Even though the pain is in the knee sometimes hip problems can radiate to the knee. ...Read more
