My left knee is very squishy towards the bottom. I limp when I walk, & it's brushing. Do you have an idea what's wrong? What can I do? (i'm a dancer!)

Prepatellar bursitis: Its difficult to say without examining you or without further info. When patients complain of a squishy knee especially at the front it often refers to prepatellar bursitis. This is an inflamation of the bursa or protective sac anterior to your knee cap. It can become inflammed when aggravated by hitting it or kneeling on it. Rx is nsaids, padding, possible inj- see your orthopedist. ...Read more

I am a male, 60 y/o, 5' 7" and weight 195 lb. It is about one week that I have pain in my left knee only when I walk down the stairs, what should I do?

I am a male, 60 y/o, 5' 7" and weight 195 lb. It is about one week that I have pain in my left knee only when I walk down the stairs, what should I do?

Knee pain: Often knee discomfort on walking down the stairs is an early symptom of osteoarthritis of that knee. I recommend weight reduction to lessen the load on your knees. For diagnosis of osteoarthritis a simple xray is usually helpful. Taking nsaids like Advil (ibuprofen) can be done as needed. If symptoms worsen see an orthopedic specialist for diagnosis and advice regarding treatment but this sounds mild for now ...Read more

Is my knee infected? I fell on the street yesterday, and badly scraped my knee. It is painful, need to take painkillers almost 3-4 times a day, hurts when I walk, climb stairs. This pic is one day after I fell. I have been cleaning it, applying antibiotic

Based: Based on the photo and your description, the knee is not infected. You should continue to gently cleanse the knee with soap and water on a daily basis. You should continue to apply neoporin or other antibiotic cream and a clean sterile bandage such as a bandaide. Your knee is healing fine.

If the area around the knee becomes angry red, hot to the touch and more painful, you should see your doctor as it may be becoming infected. You should also see your doctor if you develop a temperature over 100.4 f (38 c) or if you develop shaking chills. ...Read more

Why does my knee go out on me when I walk sometimes?

Why does my knee go out on me when I walk sometimes?

Pain or instability: Knees can "go out" for a myriad of reasons. In general, two types of giving out can occur: due to pain and aberrant muscle firing causing "buckling", or ligamentous injury causing mechanical giving way due to the lack of ligamentous constraint. A thorough history and examination by your orthopaedic surgeon will uncover the answer and allow for appropriate treatment. ...Read more

Why does my knee feel like its going to give out have pain when I walk. Had to ACE wrap it?

Unstable knee: Degeneration in the knee, excessive fluid (effusion), injury or laxity to the ligament/tendons, weakness of muscles, excessive pain, even lumbar disc disease can cause knee instability and thus sensation or actual "giving-out" wrapping of the knee reduces the "loose-feeling" thus helps you feel more confident in your knee as you walk. I suggest consulting doc for an evaluation. Good luck. ...Read more

Why does my knee make a grinding noise when I walk?

Possible arthritis: This may be due to osteoarthritis. In osteoarthritis a term call 'crepitus' often occurs. This is a noise that is due to the friction of bone. It is often due to arthritis and other causes are also possible. I would recommend you see your PCP and have them perform a physical exam where they can diagnose you. If it is arthritis weight loss and physical therapy can often help. Take care. ...Read more

I was at a softball game and when I went for a slide I slid wrong and on the left side of my knee something doesn't feel right when I walk?

I was at a softball game and when I went for a slide I slid wrong and on the left side of my knee something doesn't feel right when I walk?

Probably ok: You probably have some contusion, or ligament strain. Studies show that if you are under 55, can walk at least 4 steps, no point tenderness on the kneecap or on the outer side, & can flex your knee to 90 degrees, then there is no need for x-rays. This only means there is probably no fracture, but there maybe damage otherwise. You should go to the ER if symptoms don't improve in 2 days
