Knee tends to swell on standing and gets stiff. History of knee injury. Any ideas?

I hurt me knee roughly a year and a half ago and it swelled up pretty big but went to the docs and got some tablets to stop it and worked fine but for quite a while now when ever I stand still it feels like its trying to swell up again and after a while of standing ( about an hour or so) it gets quite stiff to bend too. But I can walk fine with out any feeling of trying to swell up. I m 27 And ride a Bmx so my body does take quite a bit of abuse from my sport. Any ideas?

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM. This is just to inform you that, it is physiological (normal) to develop a little bit of stiffness in the knee after being in prolonged standing position for an hour. If you are able to carry out all activities of daily living without any problem, then it indicates that there is nothing wrong in your knee.
If you are still concerned, i advise you to undergo MRI scan of the knee joint which reveals all the issues in the knee joint. Hope this helps
