Soooo my knee
« on: January 22, 2008, 10:34:25 PM »
Hey there!
I'm new so I don't really know how this works lol
Okay, so my knee.
A couple of years ago, when I ever I kneeled or lent on my knee, something would happen. I can't explain it properly. Like my knee would click? And I would be in a lot of pain and wouldnt be able to get back up until I clicked it back and even after than it would hurt. I could be left for ages until I got up the courage it click it back.

So I went to the doctors about it and she was new. She had no idea what was wrong with it and said I should quit my dancing and stop using my knees as much.
I eventually quit my dancing anyway and never knelt which stopped this happening.
It hasnt happened in about a year and a half and I started a new job in August and kneel quite alot since I work with kids and just today my knee did the "click" thing. I'm now terrfied of going back on my knees, though I need too...
I was wondering if anyone has an Idea about whats wrong with me or has experienced this before?

Hi Murphy,

No, sorry don't have a quick answer for you.  But I would suggest, it is changing how you lead your life that you see another doctor.  If possible see an orthopedic specialist who deals with knees.  If you are not in an area where you can go see an OS without seeing someone first go to another physician.  Be as specific as you can with the symptoms - keep track of when it happens and how often it happens.

There is a lot of knowledge on the boards here and we tend to become kind of specialists in our own problems but we can not diagnose what might be wrong.

Good luck and let me know how you do.  Sorry not to give you a set answer.

Be well,

My knee did that when I had meniscus tear, but please go to an orthopedic and throughly explain everything that has gone on and is going on... not saying it is a meniscus tear, but please go to an orthopedic!!!

I agree that is sounds like a torn meniscus. Have your doctor refer you to an orthopedic surgeon so you can have an MRI ordered. If your insurance doesn't require a referral then go straight to an OS.
