Kneecap popping out of place
« on: July 23, 2007, 06:52:31 PM »
Does anyone have the problem with there kneecaps popping out of place?  I was born without the groove that your kneecap sets in.  I am 37 years old and have never found anyone else wtih this problem.  It does it about once a year on each leg and used to I went to the hospital to pop it back in but now my husband can do it for me!  I can't walk for about a week because of the swelling.  Is there anyone else with this problem?

Heya!!

Sure you'll find more than a few people with that problem over here, including me! Well, my mechanics are pretty bad, but the dislocating has stopped for now.

Welcome and hope you find some answers here!
