Without : Without an examination, it would be hard to determine if additional tests, such as an x-ray are needed. From what i can tell, you are a young person and probably pretty healthy. If your joints, i.e. Knees, hips can move fully, in other words you can bend them, without much pain, and your leg is not grossly deformed and you can walk, my guess is that this is a contusion, i.e. Bad bruise. You may have some minor swelling and discoloration or scrapes. This will get better with some moist heat. Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin will help with the pain. However if there is deformity, significant pain when moving your knees or hip and you cannot walk, then you should see a physician and x-rays are likely to be done. ...Read more
Left knee pain started 7 days ago after running. Dull ache, occasional sharp pain, hurts to put pressure around knee cap or on sides. Fairly constant ache last 4 days. Recommendations?
Be seen: There are so many possibilities that it is really hard to say without more history and the benefit of an exam. An avid runner is at risk for a stress fracture. Symptomatic chondromalacia at the patellofemoral joint, a meniscal tear, an inflammatory condition of the knee like chondrocalcinosis are all considerations. Consider being seen for an accurate diagnosis. ...Read more

I've been getting right knee pain during leg workouts - esp lunges and during/after time on a treadmill. Advil or aleve (naproxen)? Ice or heat? Suggestions

A short course of an advil (ibuprofen) like medication may be ok. If this does not resolve with rest and simple measures you should have an orthpedic surgeon or sports medicine md examine you. ...Read more

I was a runner as a teen and notice that now running causes me hip and knee pain i never had before. Why is this and what can I do?
Weekend warrior: The most obvious answer is -- you are out of shape. You are still young, but not as young as you used to be. You may need to start slow and build up miles gradually. Also, stretch after warming up and after. With hip and knee (especially the outside/lateral part of knee) pain you may have a tight iliotibial band (itb). Google stretches for that. Good luck. ...Read more

I am also a big proponent of daily stretching especially the hamstrings if you are having knee pain especially around or behind the knee cap. ...Read more
