Something with my good knee.........
« on: January 15, 2005, 05:39:31 PM »



Hey !!

If I have something coming out like a soft bump on my lateral side down below my kneecap, my knee tends to lock when I straighten it and like jumps,crunching sound every time when I'm straighten it. Hurts like burning feeling mostly all time down my whole leg on same side.
Feels also swollen and looks swollen both inside joint and out when you look at it.
Bad pain in it when sitting with bent leg too long.
What to expect ? Arthritis or something else.
As you all know I'm wheeler not standing so much on this leg but used to play lots of sports and h
ave been jumping on this leg for several years cause can't walk on my left.
Please help me if you have any info you think can help. I'm seeing phys next week having a look at it. Will avoid OS if I can, but if necessery I of course go.
Thanks !!

Hey Nettan , I do'nt know what to say, there is SO much going on with your knees...i'm sure it's hard for even the doctors to tell. Could it be Bursitis? Something like that? That's all I can think of...hope you get some answers soon

hey nettan..could be an inflamed bursa sac....possibly a hematoma that could have been caused by a bump specially since u have been in the chair.....and the leg may be weak and sensitive....moist heat can be soothing and for the swelling..sorry u have hit yet another snag..

hang in there...
