Muscle contractions
« on: March 05, 2015, 08:07:49 PM »
Hello everyone,

Muscles around my kneecap sometimes contract by themselves. It used to happen right on the VMO few months ago. I used to have continuous movement on that muscle like it was electroshocked for 4-5 seconds. Now I am having some similar movements on lateral side, around the top corner of the patella but it doesn't last more than a second. It feels like the muscles are getting pulled and released back in a second. Really weird. Does anyone have a similar symptom here? How do you or your doctor explain it? Is it a sign of healing or things getting worse? I have too much grinding under the patella even though I don't have too much cartilage loss. Doctors told me I have only thinning so I blame tightened muscles around the kneecap for this grinding and it causes a nasty pain sometimes.
