Title: crunchin sound
Post by: Jan M on July 07, 2005, 09:33:11 PM
Hello Everyone This is my first posting. Today I knelt down on the floor and my knee made an awful noise. It wasand still is very painful and as I am sitting down when I raise the lower part of my knee there is a crunching sound which I can also feel by resting my hand upon it. Can anyone tell me what has happened please and what I should do about it. Help please.

Hi Jan
I'm new on this site too...I'm sure other people on the site have more experience than I do..but I'd suggest that you get a referal to a specialist and have it checked...an ounce of prevention is sometimes worth a pound of cure...I don't know if medical coverage would be a problem but it might be worth thinking about..Willjen62

Go get this checked by a orthopedic surgeon specialized on knees. Meanwhile RICE (rest,ice,compress,elevate).
Doesn't have to be any serious, depend if you more fell on the knee or if you twisted it.
Better be safe....
