When they say an injured athlete had fluid drained from a swollen joint such as the knee, what is this fluid?
Synovial fluid: Usually this is synovial fluid. Synovial fluid's job is to lubricate and protect the joint. In the presence of injury, inflammation or infection, the synovial lining (part of the joint capsule), overcompensates by producing an excess amount of synovial fluid. Too much fluid can cause pain and tightness in the joint and restrict range of motion. With an acute injury, blood may also fill the joint.See 1 more doctor answer

Many possibilities: Your pain could be as a result of many different things. A thorough history and physical exam and possibly some laboratory and radiology exams are needed to determine the exact cause. Causes of pain may include: soft tissue masses or cysts, trauma (fracture, tendon or ligamentous tear, arthritis), infection, metabolic conditions (gout), musculoskeletal or biomechanical abnormalities.
See your doctor: Symptoms and concerns like these mandate a thorough evaluation by your doctor. Only after such an evaluation, which may include labs and radiographic examinations, can he/she let you know what's going on and how best to help you.

Infected: Septic refers to infection. A septic knee has active infection inside the joint. More common after knee replacement, it is quite rare in healthy adults. Signs are pain, redness, and swelling. If you were concerned about this, you should have it checked out urgently, as it can quickly lead to significant arthritis.See 1 more doctor answer
