Fell on my knee, something moving around underneath
« on: April 02, 2008, 08:01:31 PM »
Hi,

I fell quite badly on my knee whilst ice skating a while ago. There was no problem with the joint and I could freely move my leg around without any problem.

However the skin on the surface of the knee stung quite bad when I touched it. The feeling was similar to when you get a bad graze and you accidentally touch it. It was a little red, but apart from that no visible signs of injury. It took about a week to heal and was fine.

The other day I decided to randomly inspect the knee for anything unusual. If I run my finger from the top to the bottom of the right side of my right knee, as I get past the main chunk of the kneecap it dips in a bit. The concaved area is about 1 1/2 centimeters in diameter. If I press around there is also something moving about in the same area. Its long and feels kinda like a vein except a lil harder (not as hard as bone).

It still doesn't hurt me or anything, but is causing a lot of stress. I'm very worried about it, and its making me anxious.

Does anybody know what it may be?

Its probably a tendon. Did you check the other side to see if its the same?

If its causing a lot of stress and anxiety then why dont you go and get it checked out and put your mind at ease?

If you are stressing about this I'd suggest that you make an appointment with an os to examine the knee.
