Recommend Eval: With knee pain lasting a month, swelling and stiffness I would recommend you have the knee looked at. There are several possible causes to your symptoms; some that may be more concerning then others. Your knee may need to be drained (fluid removed). A more thorough history and exam of your knee seems necessary at this point. Consider a virtual consult as a starting point. Hope that helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My left knee pops at times. Very loudly in fact. There is no pain at all and I've never injured my knee. What is it?
Kneecap: Painless popping typically is of no concern. In a young female such as yourself, the most common cause would be shifts of the kneecap/patella causing the popping. Some soft tissues rubbing over the bones can cause some popping as well. In the absence of pain, swelling or true "locking" of the knee, not to worry.

Rolled ankle during basketball - no ankle pain- but immediate pain around base of fifth metatarsal. No swelling/bruising but hurts to bear weight.
5th met base: the peroneal tendon attaches to the 5th met base area. In some severe ankle sprain cases the tendon can pull hard enough to fracture the bone- adulation fracture. Should have an X-ray performed on your foot to confirm if broken or not. Otherwise it's treated like an ankle sprain and you need a brace. Go see your local podiatrist or foot and ankle dr ...Read more

I have pain in my wrist/forearm, more forearm that comes and goes. Do sprains hurt when there is no movement? There is no apparent swelling.
Catching at knee randomly then small popping sound... numbness right above knee... minimal to no pain happened after doing a large number of squats.
The most usual cause: of painless popping in the knee is when the ligaments and tendons catch as they move over a bony spot in the joint and pop when they snap back into place. Sometimes the catching and popping results from actual cartilage/meniscal damage. "A large number of squats" could contribute to this. The numbness may point to damage from injury as well. See a Sports Med specialist/Orthopedist for evaluation. ...Read more

Meniscus: The medial meniscus is a cartilage structure at the inner part of the knee which is commonly injured or torn and can cause pain. In most cases the meniscus will improve with simple conservative treatment, ie time, NSAIDs, therapy. Alternatively, pain in that location could also be from the medial collateral ligament, early joint degeneration, or a bone bruise. See a physician if symptoms persist ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I had a right knee injury while surfing. No treatment but 1 year later the back of the knee and calf feel tight/swollen with activity. Any ideas?
Look at compensatory: patterns from the injury (trauma vectors). If your knee is involved, it also means there's compensation going on below and above at the calf, soleus, and ankle muscles to balance this. Also above is the quads, hamstrings, hips and low back. Get a second opinion and treatment from a neuromusculoskeletal medicine specialist (NMM) doctor of osteopathic medicine for more answers. ...Read more
I've been having constant dull/heavy pain in my left calf and back of knee no matter what I do; walk, sit, lie down rest. No injury, swelling nor hot.
HalfCalf HalfDeCalf: If you haven't injured or strained your calf, if the skin is not discolored, if the knee or calf is not swollen (check carefully behind the knee;compare with the other side), if you can breathe OK and don't have any chest pain, if you can walk OK and you have no back pain, then I'd give it a week and see what happens.Use Motrin and/or Tylenol (acetaminophen) and be careful. If it persists or gets worse, see a doc ...Read more
