How can pain under the knee be treated?

I have been having pain under my knee on the inside of my right leg since before June 2018. So far I have been giving a shot in the side of my knee for arthritis and most recently a shot for bursitis under and in front of my knee (two weeks ago tomorrow). Tomorrow I go back to the orthopedics to tell them that I had relieve for about 5 days but now I m in considerable pain again. Any suggestions on what I can ask?

Hello,

Most probably it could be due to arthritis. Consult an orthopaedic and plan for an MRI scan to assess the severity of the disease.

As a first line management, you can take analgesics like paracetamol or aceclofenac for pain relief.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Hello,

The symptoms are more likely suggestive of conditions like ligament or tendon involvement.

As of now, you can use analgesics/anti-inflammatory combination like Aceclofenac/Serratiopeptidase for symptomatic relief. You can also try ice compression also.

If symptoms persist better to consult an orthopedician and plan for an MRI scan.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Tripped and fell about 8 months ago. One knee took the hit and healed except for what seems like tendin damage in back of knee. No problem while walking but hurts like hell getting up from a seat especially if leg was folded under chair. Should I see a regular Orthopedic spec or a sports medicine specialist?

Right under my knee it started to swell and it hurts. I put a menthol patch on it and I am trying not to walk on it. I feel some tingling from under my knee to my foot. I covered my leg because it started to feel cold and when I usually do this it helps. I never notice my leg to be like this. I am trying to do anything that I can to relieve my knee. My sisters said I should exercise, but I really don t think this is the key answer to my knee. At one time that I could remember is I walking down the steps and I trip and I stumbled on my knee really hard. After this I started to have this problem with my knee. What can I do to relieve the pain that I am in. How can I help the swelling go down at home or do I need to a Dr.

Hi! About a week ago I was playing a game and the ball had went under the garage door which was half way open so I bent down underneath it and my left leg was planted and my body was shifting so my leg had twisted sideways and I heard 2 popping sounds. It hurt really bad afterwards and couldn t put pressure on it for about a couple minutes. And after that I thought it was better until I went to turn around and my pain came back. There is no swelling or any other symptoms just when I twist my knee it hurts. And the next day the back of my knee was in pain/ sore. I made an appt for tomorrow. Any idea of what it could be?
