How do you know if you tore something in your knee?
I feel and hurt my right knee a few weeks ago, the dr. took an xray and said it wasn't broken, but that i tore some tissue beneath my knee cap. She said I should be able to walk by now, and I can, but I still have a lot of swelling to the right of my knee. When I stand on it in certain ways, it feels like it might give out completely and I get a small bit of pain shooting through the right side. Could I have torn a ligament or something? Should i go back for an MRI?
yes you definitely tore a ligament,however you did not give it quite enough time to heal itself,get a crutch.stay off of that leg.
You can never bee too careful. I say yes.
yes it sounds torn i think you do need a mri id tell your docrtor what you just said and be carefull with it till then good luck flaim
An MRI is probably warranted in this situation. If it has been a few weeks and there is still swelling and pain, you may have injured the soft tissues. Your pain is consistent with a meniscus injury, although without examining the knee it is impossible to tell. Go back to your doctor and follow her recommendations.
that sounds like exactly what I had. It was inflammation due to torn cartilage. The best thing turned out to be Ibuprofen. It's been a while, so now I wonder if Aleve would even be better.
1. Does it give way without warning?
2. Does it pop out when you sit on your legs with your feet under your butt.
3. Does it make a popping sound when you walk or move it a certain way?
I had the same thing and had to have Orthroscopic surgery to correct the torn ACL (anterior cruciary ligament).
