Swelling?: Swelling and inflammation often gives patients the sense of tightness above the knee. A sprained ligament that supposedly has healed and in the absence of joint damage, is probably not associated with your current symptoms. Also, young females commonly have patellofemoral (kneecap) pain that presents on the front. If I can help, then join my care team at www.healthtap.com/dr-clarkeholmes
