Grating noise from the knee on bending, swelling in the knee on exercise. No pain. Have high triglycerides and on gout treatment

I have had for many years heard a sort of grating noise in my left knee when it is bent. There is no pain. I have within the last few days started exercising and have been using an exercise bike to try and help fitness to remove a high level of triglycorite in my blood (327) level. My kneww has now swollen and whilst still giving no pain is awkward to bend and collapses with weight on it. I am a 48 years old male, in fairly good heath although I have had treatment for gout recently but has now cleared.

Welcome to HCM.

In most cases, these noises are not indicative of any underlying problem.

If there is no pain associated with the annoying joint cracks or pops, you can assume it is being caused by the soft tissue in a joint, and is not something to worry much about.

As you have mentioned it is associated with the swelling on doing some work, it needs to be evaluated as it is difficult to predict without examination. I advice you to see orthopedician for further examination and exact diagnosis.

Hope I have provided the information you needed.
Wish you good health. Take care.

Try some calcium supplements,include ragi in your diet,swelling may be due to effusion and wear knee cap under physician guidance and try to give rest to the knee till the swelling subsides.
