Knee keeps jarring back, knee, ankle & foot very painful, swollen & foot very cold, do have old meniscus & acl injury, recent pain for unknown reason?

Get checked: You'll want to get checked and treated right away. Although unlikely given the short description, infected joint needs to be ruled out.

Have Medial Meniscus tear w/ cyst wearing hinged knee brace but calf is very painful What should I do?

Have Medial Meniscus tear w/ cyst wearing hinged knee brace but calf is very painful What should I do?

How helpful is brace: If the brace is the source of the calf pain, but helps the knee, then an adjustment to the brace (size, fit, etc.) could be considered. Alternatively, a new brace could be utilized. Personally, I don't routinely use braces for meniscal tears unless there is a ligament tear as well or associated arthritis with a misaligned knee. Seek additional help if the brace is not the cause of the calf pain. ...Read more

I have a blister that has appeared on a scar that that has healed from a scrape on my knee. The incident occurred about a month. Blister is 3 days old

Check it out!: Either your doctor, a walk-in clinic or a good pharmacist can help determine infection that needs treatment. It would be foolish to risk a blood infection (from a simple scrape.) also, poorly healing small injuries could indicate something beginning to go awry in your body - blood sugar levels, other biochemicals, etc may cause some lab tests & early detection & easier treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

My son has blisters all over his knee after using an ice pack. Looks like a burn. Should he see a dr?

Ice burn: Ice can cause as much or more damage than heat. When an ice burn blisters, it indicates there is a burn that extends through a skin layer. You get him (his knee) into warm water between 104 and 106 degrees and observe, the area should begin to pink up, feel numb and tingling and then regain sensation. If this does not happen, he needs immediate medical attention. ...Read more
