Kinda a weird question....
« on: June 06, 2005, 07:20:52 PM »
Hey Guyz!

Well, I have kind of a weird question  ::)  ???
My knees have given out on me the whole time I have had knee probs. In the last month & a half my kneecaps on both knees started sliding off to the side a lot, & this is not like when it gives out. Well in the last about 2 weeks my right knee started doin sumthin weird! Basically every time it is flexed it slides UP towards my thigh & mostly outta its place, which looks totally weird if you see it & def. hurts also!  :o  :-\
After it is up & outta its place if I relax my leg & move it around it pops back in. Or if I dont move it around I can "grab" it & push it back in its place  :-\  Could I be too strong? I have no clue what to do about it.....I guess there isnt really anything I can do ???  Does anyone know what might cause that? :-\

thanx in advance ;)
take care guyz! :)

my knee kinda does the same thing except when I am getting out from a chair. My doc. told me this is called subluxing when it partially dislocates but not all the way. I dont think being too strong has anything to do with it, if anything it would help keep your kneecap in place! Im not sure thought, im just going by what my OS told me..hope that kinda helped!
