A 52-year-old female asked:

Trauma?: Costochondritis is a painful condition that can develop after a trauma affecting the cartilage joints of the chest. Anti-inflammatory medication (if you tolerate them) help. If that is not enough, see a doctor specifically for this, but there is more that can be done. Other medications, physical therapy work well. But costochondritis usually goes away after a while, even untreated.

Gallbladder/ Ulcer?: The symptoms here are vague. This type of symptom could arise from different things. Simple muscle cramps would be relieved with conditioning, stretch and better breathing. My first thought is something gastrointestinal like an irritated gallbladder or an ulcer in the small intestine - but not my specialty so I'd suggest consulting an internist or gastroenterologist.

Quick fix and more: See an orthopedic surgeon or a physiatrist. They can evaluate the knee. If appropriate, they can drain the fluid and that will give you some immediate relief. Use ice and a compression wrap which will also reduce the pain a bit. Use a cane or crutches so that you take some weight off the affected leg and try to walk without stressing the other leg or your back! But see the Doc, get a diagnosis.
