Sharp pain in left knee
« on: June 30, 2011, 11:40:04 AM »
I was wondering if anyone can offer some advice.. I've injured my knee either playing badminton or doing lunges, it started off as a dull ache behind the knee but has now developed into a very sharp pain. The pain only occurs in certain positions, if i stand with feet sholders width apart and bend to a crouch position there is no pain, however if i go to get out of a chair and put pressure on my left knee or if i lean towards my left knee for example during a right calf stretch there is an acute pain behind the knee. I can walk, run and usually walk upstairs with no pain... Can anyone shed any light on what it might be??

Could be all manner of things.  best advice is to see a doctor or physio.  How long has it been going on - do you have swelling?  The fact you can run and walk and 'do' stairs suggests more of a strain than anything torn.  I'd say to ice the knee and avoid all exercises than cause the pain until it has been checked - you don't want to make a slight pull or strain into something more serious

I've had the injury for about 3 weeks, there has been no swelling.
I just get pain when I have extra weight on the left leg and the knee approaches being above the toes when bending
