Neuroma under the patella's skin ?
« on: May 16, 2006, 09:14:20 PM »
I have found knee neuroma description on this website:
A neuroma is a localized swelling and irritation of a nerve. Blunt trauma (a blow) to the front of the knee can bruise the fine sensory nerves that lie just under the skin and can lead to neuroma-like pain.
Gentle scratching of the skin with a thumbnail or squeezing of the skin is painful. The diagnosis is confirmed by relief being obtained with an injection of an anesthetic under the skin.
This is a common condition among people who bang their knee on a hard object such as the dashboard of a car or simply the ground.

... and it is exactly what I have been suffering since some time after pressing my knee too hard against the floor. Now I cannot touch tip of my kneecap at all, it is so sensitive! I can hardly wear trousers. Doctor Grelsamer explained this  syndrom as abovepain, but I was unable to search (find) how to cure it, how to alleviate this debilitating sensitivity!
Please share any suggestion, what I can do at home conservatively, before visiting surgeon. Thanks a lot for your time and helpful tips.

Wojt did you find relief? I'm seeing other posts saying they had the nerve buried by Dr. Mackinnon or Dr. Dellon in the USA on here...
