This often produces a bruise in the muscle & may form a transient calcium deposit from the blood pocket that forms. It usually dissolves over time but may produce a head tilt to one side while it is there. ...Read more

Both of my knees grind when I bend them, and I have a lump on the back of my neck why is that? When I was younger my left knee twisted and could barely walk, and a little after I had my first child my other knee hyperexstended now my knees both grind, an
