medial knee pain
« on: June 17, 2012, 06:10:27 PM »
Hello, everyone this is my first post.  I am a teenage girl and I have been diagnosed with chondromalacia that I am told to just deal with.  I have been and it has been getting better.  However, I have this pain on my medial side of my knee that started yesterday.  I can't sit cross legged or get on my bed or even roll over in my bed without sever sharp pain.  I also sometimes am awakened by my pain.  When I walk I can feel the pain, and I don't even try to bear all my weight on my left lleg.  My mom and dad do not believe me when I say I have actually done something to my knee. They believe that it is just the chondromalacia but I do not think so because this is not what I am used to.. Usually the pain is just an ache here and there.  But this is sharp and only when I do certain movements and constant when I am walking.  Any ideas???

Did you have any episode of your kneecap subluxing or dislocating laterally?  Is the pain around the medial border of the patella?  Also, is there any swelling?

There is no apparent dislocation or swelling and the pain is on the medial border. More towards the side

sounds like you have a medial meniscus tear.   Did you have any trauma such as a fall or maybe playing sports.  Maybe you should have an MRI to rule all of this out.    I know I was waking up at night when I had a tear in the meniscus with throbbing pain.   LAS
