Hi everyone, I'm new to the Knee & Hip Problems Board,
Hi everyone, this is my first post and I hope I'm on the correct subject. I'd appreciate any help or input to what happened to me. About 1-1/2 to 2 weeks ago I was sitting at my computer just like now, for about 2 hours. When I was done and got up both of my legs from the knee down where so swollen they felt they were going to burst, especially my left one. Well after about 1 1/2 weeks the swelling finally got down to a normal level, especially the right one. But ever since, my left knee has been giving me much trouble. At first it felt like a golf ball sized knot behind my knee that was quite painful. That finally started to go down, but up under the kneecap it still hurt very much. And also it feels like a clicking sensation when I bend and straighten it sometimes. I 've got an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon doctor next Tuesday. But this has really got me scared cause I've also got a lot of degenerative back problems that have been going on for 6 years. I don't think they are related, but still, it is just more pain to add to the pile. Anyone have any suggestions?
I'd really appreciate it,
