Pain and tightness at back of knee
« on: April 02, 2010, 01:19:36 PM »
Hi, this is my first post and so just a quick question to find out possible causes.

I've started to get pain at the back of my knee when I've been crouching down and stand back up. It is a tight, painfull feeling that can feel almost like it's about to "burst". This is behind my knee in at the back of my leg and seems unrelated to the "joint" itself. I run quite a bit, but running and wallking doesn't seem to affect it, it only comes on when I crouch down and stand back up. The longer I crouch the more painfull when I try to stand up.

Any ideas would be helpfull as with the bank holiday I can't make it to a physio or doctor until after easter.

Many thanks.

sounds like you could have a bakers cyst.  I have had them and they come and go.  They usually go away on there own, but it can be very annoyng, especially when you sit and then try to stand. Try icing the back of your knee, and if the tight feeling doesnt go away you may need to see a os, to find out what is causing it. :)     Kim
