ITBS or ACL?
« on: June 27, 2013, 04:06:28 AM »
Hey all, recently my knee has swollen up a bit but not enough for complete immobilization. I also feel a tightness above the knee and right below it on the lateral side. Hence, I think that this might be an IT Band problem. Does ITBS usually cause swelling?

Another tidbit, though I'm not sure if it will help; if I lie on my bed with a straight leg and my joint line at the edge of the bed, it feels almost like my lower leg will buckle towards the floor (if I lie on my lateral side) can this also be related to the IT band or an ACL problem?

Thanks a million.
