Knee Pain
« on: September 16, 2004, 02:06:04 PM »
Hi there, this is my first time on here so please bear with me.
A few years ago I trekked up a mountain in the Lake District and a few days later had pain in the upper part of my knee cap. I found that I could not put any weight at all on that leg when going up or downstairs due to the excruciating pain and the fact that my leg would just give way. I didnt see a doctor at this time (silly but my gp was never very helpful) but when I started feeling tenderness again a few months later I explained the situation to my GP who said it couldnt be the same injury and was probably age and wear and tear.
A day or 2 ago at work someone pushed open a door wuite forcefully and it caught me in the same spot on my kneecap and there is now a small bruise, with tenderness and I am beginning to feel the same pain in my knee, especially when going up and downstairs.
Does anyone know if this could be an aggravation of the earlier injury and if I should go back to the DR or just rest it for a few days?
Thanks  ::)

Hey !!

Wait for some days and see if it get better, ice and rest and elevate. If you don't see any improvement maybe it's time to see a doc.

If you have recurrent pain in one part of the knee, it's worth getting checked out. Depending on your age or activity, it could be a little area of arthritis or tendinitis.

I am 27 and the original injury occurred when I was 24. The pain has eased now as has the bruise but if i kneel on it I get a sharp pain.

Did you ever check into this (MRI, etc)?
Perhaps you may have sprained or torn a ligament.  

Take care and good luck.

01/05- RK, PFS and venous deficiencies
- Still could be more, but still don't want to ask!
