Knee severly swollen
« on: March 20, 2014, 07:26:15 AM »
Hi, my left knee swole up 2 weeks ago for no apparent reason. No injury that I knew of and no pain. It swole up in about 2 hours as well. Went to doc straight away he gave me ibuprofen and checked for ligament damage etc. it's not hot to touch either. Had an MRI and my knee drained and fluid tested. Both were clear. Fluid and swelling came back in 24 hours. Any idea what it could be. I'm 27 male and an electrician who uses his knees a lot. Doc recons it's an overuse injury. If this is the case how long will it take for the swelling to go down? Thank you
