knee pain, doctor doesnt know
« on: May 28, 2006, 05:15:29 AM »
Hello,
Have a big concern. I am 26 with knee pain located on the lateral side right below the knee cap, starting at the patella tendon. The area is contantly numb. I had an ACL replaced 6 years ago and I have had no problems until a few months ago. No impact or twist, pain just starting coming on. I have had a cortozone shot,xray,mri and then a scope done. The scope removed a little cartalige behind the knee cap but not where my knee hurts. The pain is the same as before the scope.  The pain is only weight bearing. Before the scope I could be manipluated every which way and touching the joint without discomfort. The doctor doesnt know whats wrong. I also had blood tests for lyme and others and all came back negative. HELPPPPPP. It almost seems like I have a bump on the top of my knee cap which doesnt exist on my other knee, but the doctor said it was fine. He seems to think I have a great knee. Then why can't I walk! PLeaaaaaaasssssssseeee HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP.

Spinaldamage wheeler 100%.
Right knee damaged aug-06, use brace surgery 4/9-07.LCL tear.

How is your quad muscle? Strong? Almost 100%? Have you recently gained a lot of weight? There are plenty of things to consider as to why this happened to your previously great knee.

Im not sure I would say it's 100%. I haven't walked really in 3 months. I have lost some weight actually.
