Urgent- Pain Below knee?!
Question: Urgent- Pain Below knee?
It could possibly be tendinitis- which is swelling of the tendons. What happens is you over-exert those tendons during any activity- simple or intense , and it causes very painful swelling and inflammation of the tendons. Im thinking it might be patellar tendinitis- since where you're describing the pain is right by the patella, and it is under it. I would go see a specialist to make sure its nothing more serious. For right now- ice, tylenol/ advil/ motrin and elevation will do wonders. Try to avoid over-exerting or using that knee until you know exactly what the problem is. The specialist might prescribe a pain medication to ease the pain and he may also suggest a knee brace to support the bad knee and perhaps a time period of not using that knee. Hope I helped
