Knee pain/popping help
« on: November 16, 2019, 06:39:11 PM »
Hi all. I donít have insurance right now to get it checked out. Waiting for the payment to clear to extend Cobra.

My knee hurts a bit when I bend the knee sometimes. Itíll also pop frequently. The pain kind runs more behind my knee cap and sometimes shoots along my calf. I can walk pretty well and put weight on it. Thereís no swelling, and when I touch around thereís no sharp pain in any spot. However itís been feeling this way for a week now. Every morning I wake up, it gets super stiff and the pain level stays the same. Was hoping itíll feel a bit better each day. Today itís still there but lots of tightness around the glute and groin to side of knee hurting.  Itís not until I let my knee pop a few time from stretches that it starts to feel loser and less pain.

Anyone experience this before or may know what it is?

How old are you?
How long has the pain been going on for?

In the first instance, have a look at the patella primer in the learning portfolio area of the forum. Read up on patellofemoral syndrome and arthritis. The most common cases for non traumatic pain around the kneecap

Good luck :)
