Knee pain

by sls

I have been having this issue for a couple of months now. My knee will start making a cracking sound/or poping sound when I walk. It is not painfull usually but I can be sure that the next day or so I will be in much pain but the cracking/poping sound is no longer there. It hurts when I bend it, it hurts when I walk. It hurts all around the knee, front and back, down the front of my leg even. I have been taking over the recommended dose of Motrin and it doesn't seem to be working. Is this something that you have heard of before? Do I need to see a doctor or can i try some things at home?

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks



Hi,

The symptoms you describe can be related to a number of things. As the popping/cracking does not cause pain I do not believe that it is in any way the cause of your pain. More importantly is the fact that you cannot bend it and that you have pain with walking.

What I would suggest is that you start icing the front and back of your knee, 15 minutes at a time, three times a day. Avoid extended walking and stairs. If possible, try using a stationary bike for 5-10 min every day. Finally, try the exercises listed on this page:

I'm not saying that you have knee arthritis, just that these exercises would be helpful based on your symptoms. If you are consistent with this program for four weeks but continue to have pain, see an orthopedic physician.

Hope this helps.

Knee pain for years, now found help
by: Mary

This isnt a home remedy but it is all natural. Its topical so you dont have to swallow any pills or nasty tasting things. Its the only thing that has helped me, EVER! I have had knee pain so severe for years. My dr. says there is nothing we can do until i decide to go for a total knee replacement. Ive tried pills, ointments, exercises, cortisone shots, even arthroscopy. It was so severe i couldnt step off a curb in a parking lot. Then a friend had this stuff and let me try it. I cant remember the name cuz im at work now and dont have it with me, but they tag it as "Magic Juice, the Miracle in a Bottle!" Its amazing!!! It takes my pain away immediately and stays gone for hours and hours. The phone number for it was 4079824051. I keep that phone in all of my contacts lists as one of my most important numbers! Ive reordered several times! Its a clear liquid in a bottle that doesnt even leave a sticky or greasy residue. Ill never use anything else again. Ive used it on muscle pain too, and it works just as good for that! It really ended up being magical and a miracle to me. Good luck with your pain and relief.
