acute pain in one knee only, when kneeling

    
Asked by damnsilly (Male; 43; UNITED KINGDOM; good all round health over the years ) on Fri 26, Feb 2010 10:17am

Since a recent walk, I have developed a stabbing pain in my left knee, when I kneel down or apply pressure to an area just below the knee cap. The pain feels like I have knelt on broken glass and occurs to the left of my knee ie not in the exact spot where the pressure is applied. It has not got any better or worse over the last 2 weeks (just that I kneel down less). The knee does not hurt at all at any other time except when I kneel down. there is no swelling or redness and no other symtoms.

Hi, You need to see your doctor to rule out a ligament injury, mensical tear or even a patellar fracture. This could be fluid collection or blood collection at the site of injury / strain. Till then it would help to try some cold compresses, rest. Avoid lifting heavy weights and kneeling. You need to get an xray done. Regards.

I have had severe knee pain only when kneeling on any kind of surface. The pain is located on the right outside, below the knee cap, about the size of a half-dollar. The pain feels like kneeling on crushed glass. Upon standing the pain goes away. There is no pain when walking or bending the knee, only when kneeling and weight is upon it. This has been going on for the past three weeks. The right leg has full mobility and motion. The knee area is not swollen, red or warm/hot. It does not hurt to the touch. I have been doing squats in place of kneeling, but fear this may do more harm. I have never had any accidents or prior problems with this right leg before. I am age 75, not over weight and can still snow ski without this knee problem. After everything I have read on this problem, it appears that time is needed for healing, without aggrevating the situation.

Im 32 and I've had pain in both knees for years same thing like pressing my knees on crushed glass. They hurt all the time when I bend or turn walking up or down stairs and they swell up so bad I can't walk or even bend my knee when I bend down to pick something off the ground I have to leave my leg straight I had surgery on one of them a few years ago just made it worse I don't know what's wrong or what I should do?
