Strange issue with left knee
« on: May 06, 2006, 04:57:43 PM »
Hey, i'm 17 years old and like most boys my age, i love a game of football whenever i can get one. I tend to play as often as i can in proper games but when im not im most likely running around practicing on my own. Ive never had any problems with my knees apart from the odd pains now and then which i only assume was growing pains. Now ive noticed it over the past few times playing football or running around that i get a strange feeling in my left knee.

I can't really describe it other than it doesn't really hurt, i can sort of feel a slight pain but nothing too much. It happens randomly when im running around, bending my knees or jumping etc. It sort of feels as if there was a band around my knee and somebody was pulling it, bad description but i have no idea how else to describe it.

Anybody got any ideas as to what this could be? Just hoping its not too serious

Its hard to describe, if your kneecap is a circlular shape then i'd have to say its around the circle. Its as if there is a band around my kneecap that keeps getting pulled. Its not ON my kneecap but around it. If you get what i mean

Does anyone else in your family have joint pain or problems?  I have chondrocalcinosis ("pseudogout") and it started at about your age.  It is hereditary. Calcium crystals develop in your joint and do quite a bit of damage over time. 

Good luck!
