Grinding, cracking sound on bending the knees, dull pain inside the knees, sharp pain behind knee cap with calf soreness. Treatment?
Hi i have had a grinding, creaking sound when i bend my knee for the last 6 months. in the last week i have experience a dull, aching pain on the inside of knee, sharp pain behind the knee cap which has woken me up during sleep, this comes and goes and recent days pins and needs from knee down to foot and calf muscle soreness behind leg.
I would suggest you to get MRI of the knee joint to see if there is any bony abnormality or any cartilage damage or meniscus tear. Also see if there is any joint effusion is present. Then treatment can be done according to that.
