Pins and needle pain in the knee, numbness after an injury. Feeling bubble in the knee. Why?
hi well about two weeks ago i fell on my kneecap while iceskating and slammed into the edge of the ice rink and my kneecap slightly dislocated well it was out of place i left it alone,not going tot hospital, as i had crutches and ive been using them for a while now but it feels like a bubble between my kneecap and it grinds sometimes which feels uncomfortable also i have pins and needles in it which doesnt seem to go away for a long time and a cold numbing in my leg going down from the kneecap. i was wondering what exactly is wrong with it
Hi--you need x-rays and an MRI of the knee. You may have a fracture of the kneecap and you may have torn one of the suspensory ligaments. You need evaluation and proper physical therapy for this and you may in time even need surgery for it.
