I am a dancer. Symptoms- swelling, shadows on inside, aching when used, a lump on the outside in line with the centre of the knee.  ?

Knee injury?: Because of your dancing, your knees are subject to lots of stress. The "shadows" may indicate deep bruising in the knee joint, and I'm wondering about an injury to the cartilage in the knee (called the "meniscus"). The lump you describe may be fluid buildup in the joint. I recommend seeing a doctor who can order pictures of the knee (x-ray, MRI). Meanwhile, rest, ice, and knee elevation may help! ...Read more

Could fibromyalgia cause same symptoms as osteoarthritis in my knees.I have no swelling but some pain.?

Observe closely: Fibromyalgia classically affects soft tissue pain messengers (ligaments, muscles, skin, even blood vessels). Osteoarthritis affects bone. Because the knee is a complex structure comprised of both bone & soft tissue, it may be hard to distinguish. But do you have fibromyalgia--pain on both sides of the body and above & below the waist? ...Read more

Could early arthritis cause pain in the middle of my left knee when i kneel it.I have no other symptoms such as swelling, hot sensation or stiffness?

Could early arthritis cause pain in the middle of my left knee when i kneel it.I have no other symptoms such as swelling, hot sensation or stiffness?

Chondromalacia: Early arthritis could cause pain with kneeling, especially if the cartilage on the undersurface of the kneecap (patella) is damaged. This is called chondromalacia. Some people call this early arthritis but it does not necessarily progress to arthritis (which is the total erosion of the cartilage). X-rays and MRI can help make a diagnosis so the appropriate treatment can be prescribed. Good luck! ...Read more

See below: It is not unusual to have pain after this type of procedure. Progressively it should be getting better. You're weight-bearing orders are as instructed by your orthopedic surgeon who at the time did your operation in particular your chondroplasty will give you those weight-bearing instructions .
