My Knee Pops In And Out Alot And Getting Worse What Should I Do
Every morning I get out of bed and my knees and ankles pop constantly. Is that good or bad? Should I stop popping them?
No pain, no problem: We used to think that popping our knuckles, neck, back etc.. Caused arthritis. However, there is no evidence of causal relationship has been found until this time. It is indeed a habit and once formed, the joints "feel the need to pop" intermittently. As long as it does not cause pain while doing it..Enjoy the popping. If u don't like to hear the pop, don't do it..It will stop with time. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What do you suggest if i'm laying down and i lift up my neck and as I do that i feel a sharp pain on my knee?
Pinched Nerve: Sounds like a pinched nerve in your neck. Typically that is most times what causes pain all the way down or up your arm. Alternatively, it could be a pinched nerve in arm as well like in the brachial plexus and/or nerve entrapment elsewhere. If your knee hurts it suggests the pinching in your neck is more severe than usual. I would suggest seeing a spine specialist to evaluate this further. ...Read more
Hi. I have knee pain after I bend my knee and then extend it, and it also hurts whenever I play sports. Or put to much pressure on it? What do I have?
Hard to say: There are many moving parts in the knee. If you have a lot of swelling, it may mean you tore the meniscus, the padding between the tibia and femur, or you might have torn a ligament. But it could also be a minor contusion (bruising). You will not know unless you see an orthopedic doctor who will do an exam and may or may not order an MRI which is the best way of seeing looking inside the knee. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Trigger finger?: This sounds like a trigger finger. Sometimes in more severe cases the finger gets 'stuck' and straightening it out is painful. If it is just clicking, it might resolve by itself. A cortisone injection can be very helpful (orthopedics or rheumatology), but you can probably wait and see. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
