Knee Sometimes Feels Like Being Drawn After A Motorcycle Accident.?
Excuse me,. Around 2017 I had a motorcycle accident that resulted in my left knee getting on the motorbike. After that my knee hurts if I stand too long and walk. Finally, I decided to go to the hospital at that time to find out if my knee was wrong. However, after the x-rays said that my knee did not experience any broken bones or bone pain. Because I was disappointed, I finally went to a massage therapist and after a few weeks my knees were slightly better and I was able to do my normal activities again. And apart from that, I once did gymnastics by resting on my left leg and then suddenly my knees seemed to be tight and my knee hurt again. Finally, I went back to the massage therapist and said the massage worker said I got gout. I wonder why my knee, right? And what doctor should I see? Sorry if my question is a bit strange. Thank you very much

Pain in the knee joint can be caused by disorders of the bones, joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles around the knee. If the X-ray examination of the knee has been carried out and the results are normal, the pain may be felt due to injury to the muscles or tendons in the area. An injury can trigger a tear in the tendon or just an ordinary injury to the muscle. Tendons are connective tissue between bones and muscles which contain many nerve fibers. If the impact is quite hard, the pain is often felt due to nerve activation around the area experiencing the trauma / impact. Of course it takes a long time during the healing process so that the function of the knee joint can return to normal, although this also depends on how severe the trauma was experienced before. Injuries involving muscles, tendons or bones tend to recur easily if they get repeated trauma, especially in the same area. The possibility that you experience is a sprain injury, namely injury to the connective tissue between bones, or also known as ligament due to trauma / impact. But it can also be caused by injury to the tendons / tissue that connects the bone to the muscles, or also called strain injuries. Both sprains and strains will provide a normal X-ray picture even though pain and movement are limited.
While gout is characterized by increased levels of uric acid in the body accompanied by symptoms such as pain, especially in the joints, swelling in the affected area accompanied by signs of inflammation. Gout often attacks small joints in the hands and feet, wrists and feet and large joints such as the knee.
The development of gout often arises quickly and comes suddenly. This disease requires a blood test to measure the level of uric acid in the blood along with a physical examination directly by a doctor.
Therefore, it is highly recommended to conduct an examination directly with an orthopedic specialist who is an expert in the field of internal medicine, as well as a specialist in internal medicine to get an appropriate examination and evaluation. Blood tests through the laboratory can help determine the levels of uric acid in your body.
Various other diseases such as rheumatic diseases, arthritis / osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis can be one of the causes.
The first thing you can do is rest your knees, elevate your knees, compost with ice / cold water and avoid doing strenuous activities first. To avoid gout, consume healthy and nutritious foods that do not contain high purine levels, increase your consumption of plain water, exercise regularly and avoid smoking and alcohol. In addition, you should be careful in massaging / sorting areas of the body that are sick. Strive to minimize intentional or unintentional movements with sequencing / massage.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
