Knee novice - question
« on: September 05, 2003, 05:38:47 PM »
Hi

I had an footballing incident 8 years ago where my right knee seemed to give way underneth me as I stopped to change direction.  I had loads of pain and swelling in the outside of my knee, I could walk on it but foolishly never sought medical advice.

I tried football a couple of times and it has given way again, feels like kee moves in the direction it shouldnt!  I can run without pain, sudden hard impact makes it go but generally its fine.  The muscle on the above my kness on the left hand side of my right knee is definately smaller than my left leg.

Id like to get find out what the hell I did and if I can sort it out - any advice will be greatly appreciated.  Im sure I havent given enough information.

Hi,
No one ,that I'm aware of, on this board is a doctor. if you want to know what your problems are and how to make it better, you can't skip this step. You may need to see a specialist like a orthopedic surgeon. My luck with knee problems with general practitioners hasn't been good. Good luck, Larry
