I started having knee pain and they crack all the time. My dr said I have fluid in my knees caused from being a woman and we have wider hips. Really?

No

Knee
Not sure what your doctor said, but what he/she probably meant is that kneecap (patella) pain is very common in young women given the angle that their quadricep muscle makes given relatively wider hips. This angle tends to pull the kneecap out to the side and that can cause pain. Simple knee stretching and exercises should help.

I have fluid on my knee, I have been taking aleve and using an ice pack to treat my knee. what is the time frame for fluid to go away?

It depends

Naproxen
It depends on the underlying cause. Many causes will not improve with ice and Aleve. Have you seen a rheumatologist or orthopedist?

Last week I fell on the ice and the doctor said I have fluid in my knee will the fluid go away by itself ?

Likely

You likely have a collection of fluid or blood in the bursal sack overlying the knee. These usually resolve on their own. You can help it by using mild heat and compression bandage. That should speed its resolution. Good luck!

I played soccer yesterday and now my knee is swallen and sore. I did not injury it. Could I have fluid in my knee?

Yes

Knee
You could have some inflammation there and subsequently get some swelling. I suggest you try some RICE. R for rest. I for ice. C for compression like a knee wrap to keep the swelling down and E for elevation. Keeping the legs elevated will reduce swelling. Good luck. Hope you won!

i went to the dr a few days ago and he said i have some fluid in my knee. can that cause pain in my ankle and thigh as well?

Possibly

Knee
Referred pain from the knee can cause ankle and thigh pain. The first thing to determine is why you have fluid in the knee. If trauma was involved, it's important to evaluate the entire extremity for injury. If no trauma was involved, you may need to see a rheumatologist for further evaluation.
