Knee Pain
Hello. I am a young adult, female. Eight years ago I had ACL and meniscus surgery on my right knee after a trauma sports injury. That knee has been fine since recovery but recently I have started having pain in my left knee. It has been going on for a few months now and has seemed to come on without any cause. There is no swelling and the pain is not constant. The pain is mostly located on the interior of the knee and right behind the knee cap. Sometimes exercise makes it feel better, but sometimes walking on it for long distances also makes it feel worse. I would like to know if I should exercise it more, or rest it. Any advice from someone who experienced something similar or medical advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi there!

Well, without an evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include patellar dislocation, chondromalacia patellae, infections/ inflammations, arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, cyst formation, iliotibial band syndrome, osgood schlatter disease, bone growths/ tumours, nerve impingement/ compression, fractures, injuries to the internal knee ligaments/ menisci etc; just to name a few. I would suggest consulting an orthopedician for an evaluation. After a cause is diagnosed, it can be managed accordingly.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
