Q&A: Bad knee pains?

February 20th, 2014

Question by Lindsay: Bad knee pains?

I am in substantial college and really feel as if i have terrible knees previously. I have never ever had a severe injury to them. They have usually been agonizing (as lengthy as i can remember). When i was younger they employed to just phone them growing pains, i have not grown in four many years.

What can i do about this? I went to a unique medical professional currently and he told me practically nothing is wrong with them.

They usually hurt right after a prolonged day of strolling, if i slam them down on the floor in the wrong way and so forth..

(Advil no longer performs)

Very best solution:

    Try ibuprophen 800 mg. That means 4 of the 200mg. It works for me and I am 54 with knee pain and arthritis. But, you really should have x-rays to rule out a serious problem-doubtful because it is in both knees.

    leg extensions can help to strengthen the knee area done correctly – I’d check with a fitness instructor so you do it correctly.

    I suggest that you go to another doctor, an orthopedic doctor. Sounds like you have joint problems. Check it out and good luck.

    Although I am not a Doctor & will not make a diagnosis, I had this same problem when I was very young too. My knees would hurt mildly to very painfully- usually based on the amount of physical activity I would have had during the day. Sometimes they would ache from no physical activity at all, but most of the time it was when I was active. I also never had any really serious injuries to my knees. The symptoms did not go away until I was completely grown, so I believe “growing pains” may be a part of it- but I don’t think that this is the only reason. Both of my Daughters experienced this as well; my oldest Daughter complained the most about it- and I finally took her to see a “Bone Specialist” who did make a diagnosis of a particular condition that primarily will affect the knee-bones. I do not remember the name of the condition (you may be able to find information online if you key in specific words). She was given a “Medical Excuse” from the Doctor for a modified exercise program in PE; it mainly involved resting her knees when they began to ache. I would definately recommend seeing a Doctor who specializes in this field (I am not sure if a Chiropractor (Sp?) would be the right Specialist)- but it would be a “Bone Specialist” of some sort. Your Family Doctor may be able to make a referral for you. Genetics might play a part, but if you are in this much discomfort on a continuing bases, seeing a Physician would be appropriate.

    Read the “dehydration” website. Also take 2 tbls. of apple cider vinegar for its 93 vitamins and minerals once a day. Vinegar gives you lots of energy.

    There are a couple of things to consider when evaluating your knee pain… If you are into sports that could very well be the cause of your knee pains. You mentioned when you walk a lot you notice the pain more. Do you also notice it when you have not been active?

    I too have had knee pain and I know, as you do, it is no fun! I would suggest you see another doctor and perhaps try your best to think of ANY thing at all that has to do with your knee pain. It could be a sort of arthritis that is making your knee hurt…or a bursa that is inflamed or even a tendon problem.

    You probably need to have some x-rays done of your knees if you haven’t already. Regardless of what type pain it is…pain of any sort is not normal and you should seek medical advise to find the answers. Check out this site for more info on knee pain. Good Luck
