Knee pain?
« on: November 30, 2009, 04:19:23 PM »
Okay I'm new here and dint really know where to put this, so I hope here is okay :)

I've recently started getting pain in the back of my knee when I bent it, along with cracking when I bend then extend. Also, my kneecap seems pretty lose (I can move it to the inside of my leg by around an inch) and feels like it needs to pop whenever I extend my leg. My knee also gets pretty stiff when its bent for a while.
Im thinking about going to the doctors soon, but just wondered whether anybody on here could give an idea as to what it could be?

(I guess I should also give you a history; I'm a teenage girl and have had knee problems in the past on the same knee. About a year and half ago I had an arthroscopy and lateral (open) release because of habitual subluxation in my patella. I also have bowed legs and persistent femoral neck anteversion.)

Thanks in advance :)
