Yes they appeared quite quick big red itchy lumps behind my left knee almost within a few minutes and quite large only on one knee?
What happened first?: What happened before the lumps appeared? Were you stung/bitten by an insect? Had you rubbed against some plants/weeds? We need more information to provide the best answer. Possibly using topical Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or taking zyrtec/benadryl/claritin by mouth will resolve issue, but fp should see lumps & get complete history. ...Read more
Contact dermatitis?: Do you have poison ivy in your area? Did you come in contact with plastic, metal, or chemicals in that area of your leg?

I have sores on my right armpit and leg and on my left knee they are itchy at night and leak clear fluids. I don't know what they are or how to help.
Clear fluid is prob: Nothing. Cells contain fluid as does the space around the cells so this may be nothing. But sores concern me. I would see dermatologist to determine cause of sores, Apply topical antibiotic and cover with bandaid until you see someone. If lesions heal with topicals you may be scratching at night and opening your skin. Check any animals for fleas ...Read more

Bent slightly at knees at heard a pop in left knee. Swollen knee and tendon goes to to left not straight from patella to tibia. Eds classical. Cause?
Eds?: Not familiar w/ abbreviation. Sounds like u subluxated your patella (kneecap) though. Sorry didn't realize you had ehler's danlos syndrome. .. Now I understand. As you know very well your joints are 'looser' than ' normal' joints and kneecaps can 'slip' out of place w/ the stresses of squatting.See your ors for evaluation and quad strengthening/ patellar bracing if needed. Best of luck! ...Read more

I hit my left knee hard today now its swollen and I can't bare weight on it or bend it the pain is on the right side of my knee should I be concerned?
If you truly cannot bend the knee or bear weight then the injury is sufficient to be concerned.
Whether or not you need immediate attention would be impossible to say based on limited information. Often one can elevate, ice and rest for 48-72 hrs to see if it improves.
One reason to seek medical attention would be if there was an open wound associated with the injury.
