i need help i have a weird feeling onmy knee
« on: May 10, 2009, 07:37:22 AM »
Hi, im having a problem on my right knee for some reasons i just cant go and have it check by my pcp. SO i did a couple of research but unfortunately i justmade my self confused then i stumbled on this website and i think there are lots of people here who could give some insight on wht my condition is.

Here's whats happening i started feeling a grinding on my knee evry time i bend it but i ddnt pay attention cause i thought it is something that would just go away, a couple of months later it became audible that a person 3 feet away would hear it. It only clicks/pops if i sit down, if i stand up it doesnt make anysound. I dont feel any pain at all even if i bend my knee quickly i could bear weigh, jump, run without any problem i could stretch my leg. But then i could feel stiffness and a quick sharp pain not really a pain more likely a pinch if i stand in a long period of time. With my leg straight i try to move my patella to any direction i dont feel pain but there is something i notice, if i move it and down to the direction of my foot i could feel something rough grinding its like there is a 2 bump or something.  i work in a industrial business. I lift something that weigh 50 lbs even with this condition i could still do it but after work i feel the same kind of pain but it doesnt last long not even 1 min. It swells a little bit but not that noticeable. it swells under the patella, a person could only tell if my leg is straight but if i bend my knee it looks normal. I dont do any strenuous activity besides my job but i dont lift the whole 8 hours.

thank you for reading
please give me your thoughts about this.

It sounds as if you are experiencing 'crepitus' - http://www.kneeguru.co.uk/KNEEnotes/crepitus

Hi

One cannot guess at a knee injury - you must get the doctor to see it with a possible MRI scan
