A Painful Knee Accompanied By A Muscle Feels Pulled And Sounds When It Is Moved?
Good evening doctor,
Good evening Ria, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. What you need to understand first is that with a long history of pauses of up to a matter of years, it is very likely that what you are experiencing now is different from what you experienced before, even though it happened in the same section.
This is because with such a pause, there is a lot of potential for recovery that could have already happened. Maybe your history makes your knee area weaker and vulnerable to disease, but the disease itself can still be different from what you experienced first. For example, you used to have dislocated or displaced bones or joints, while the pain now comes from infection or bone friction due to lack of joint lubricant.
So what we want to say, we cannot answer your questions without a direct inspection. Our advice, consult your problem with your orthopedic doctor / orthopedic, so that a re-examination of your condition, especially in the knee area. Your doctor may ask you for an x-ray examination, to assess whether there is damage and how you should treat it. Only then can you determine whether you need surgery or not, and if not, what therapy is most appropriate for you.
Meanwhile, limit physical activity, especially those relying on the legs such as cycling, jumping and running, maintaining ideal body weight, compressing the area of pain with warm compresses, may take over-the-counter pain relievers by reading the rules of use, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
