My right knee hurts the back side really bad hurts wen I walk touch or rub it. What could the cause be?

Pain behind knee: When the focal area of knee pain is in the back (called the "poplieteal fossa"), one disorder to suspect is a large cyst behind the knee joint, which is known as a baker's cyst. An ultrasound test can be used to confirm this. Treatment is either wait and watch or surgical removal of the cyst. ...Read more

Deserves evaluation: Some conditions can't be readily diagnosed online. There are many possible causes, such as chondromalacia or a torn meniscus. I do want to esp. Comment on your saying "not lyme." lyme is surprisingly common. The standard elisa screening test misses at least half the cases & even the standard western blot gives many false negatives so you could have lyme even if your test was negative. See comment:. ...Read more

Yes but unlikely.: 10 weeks is a good enough length of time for the tendons, muscles, & cartilage off the knee to heal provided there was no tear or fracture. So the chances of RE-injuring your knee is low. Dancing can INJURE the knee (in a new way), of course. If you experience soreness or pain (anywhere- not just the knee), the 1st step for immediate treatment is to ice it - keep it cold. You can often do it daily ...Read more

Rug burn-like pain on the outside of my right knee. Hurts if I rub it against something, but its not external. Cortisone recently and history of disc issue?

Interesting: The character of the pain sounds neurologic and should be examined by the doctors treating your serious neck condition. Spinal stenosis can affect both neck and back in those who have the condition early in life. Trauma to the knee can give local symptoms because it is a bony joint with a superficial nerve that is vulnerable to bumps. It is safe to "watch it" if you stay active. ...Read more

What should I do my right knee hurts and I also have varicose veins on my right foot?

I would recommend icing the knee until you can get to a doctor. You can also try one of the various knee braces available at a sporting goods store. I don't believe the varicose veins on your right foot are related to your right knee pain. ...Read more

Knee pain: When you are in a seated position the patella (Knee cap) acts as a fulcrum. Your quadriceps attach to it. In some people, the patella will slide laterally excessively and cause a kind of 'lock up' pain/click. See and orthopod for a good exam. There is a simple surgery to correct the problem. ...Read more

My right knee hurts. It always has. Even when I was just a child. I can't fold my legs for too long. Reason?? Now that I'm obese, it hurts even more!

Be seen: You would really need to be seen and examined and probably undergo some testing for an accurate diagnosis as there are multiple possibilities, from an undiagnosed inflammatory arthritis to some type of congenital problem. There are so many pisdibilities. On top of that, obesity can aggravate an underlying knee problem as well and should be treated aggressively. ...Read more
