Pain In The Left Knee When Bent?
Goodnight Good Doctors, introduce my name Day, age 23 years, I want to ask, on my left knee it hurts very much when bent, but when straightened it doesn’t really hurt. Initially not, but I want to know, what is the cause, Turpok not, Fall not, Play ball no, But before I got sick, I like going down the stairs at my house rather quickly half run (not running fast, not walking too). What actually happened, some say, Gout but I have not been too confident with the answer. Please answer yes, this is the first time I’ve experienced it. Thank you very much, sorry to bother
Thank you for the question.
Pain that feels dominant on one side of the knee, especially when bent, can indeed indicate inflammation of the joints due to deposition of excess uric acid crystals (gout arthritis). But besides that, many other conditions can also trigger knee pain, such as osteoarthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, rheumatoid arthritis, nerve pain, peripheral arterial disease, fibromyalgia, cellulitis, malnutrition, knee joint dislocation, ligamentous injury, deep vein thrombosis, nerve disease, peripheral arterial disease, fibromyalgia, cellulitis, malnutrition, knee joint dislocation, ligamentous injury, deep vein thrombosis, peripheral neuropathy, psychological disorders, and so on.
Not infrequently, pain in the knee does not appear alone, but is also accompanied by swelling, weakness, stiffness, or other more severe complaints. If you experience these other complaints, or if pain in your knee has appeared for a long time, you should immediately consult a doctor or neurologist. Neurological examination, assisted by supporting tests, such as x-rays, CT scans, blood tests, and so on, may be the doctor will do in order to provide treatment with the right target.
Meanwhile, what needs to be done so that pain improves is:
Get more rest, hang the knee that aches up Do not carelessly massage the painful knee Always wear comfortable pants and footwear, not high heels Don't smoke Ice pack on your sore knee Regularly exercise, especially sports that do not overload the knee, such as cycling, swimming Hope you help yoga ..
