Causes Of Swollen Left Knee
I recently developed a swollen, painful, stiff left knee, but have no history of trauma to the joint. Any ideas for the cause?
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

Reasonable concern : 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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
