Hello Sufi,

THanks for posting your query

You may be suffering from synovitis knee or suprapatellar bursitis.

Synovitis may be traumatic, inflammatory, arthritic.

Exam. of knee is required. so you have to visit an orthopaedic surgeon for exam. & treatment plan acc. to that.

HI, welcome to HCM
There is always a cause for fluid in knee. Before taking to medicine you should go for USG or MRI knee. It will rule out all the causes for free fluid.
You may have any meniscal tear or ligamentous injury. Then you have to treat accordingly.
Thanking you.
