Locked knee since 2 month is a serious problem. It's most likely the torn meniscus which has caused the locking. Unfortunately there is no medicines which can heal the torn meniscus. I would strongly recommend that you undergo arthroscopy meniscectomy. I would not be much worried about ligaments at your age, but locked Knee if it remains locked will quickly cause degenerative arthritis in the joint.

Respected sir, I am 35 years old, and I have pain problem in back and in knees. And one more thing is that I when I come from outstation then there is big pain in my head and then vomiting and after some time I get relief from my head pain if more then I go to doctor then they give me injection and I get relief, they tell me this is due to food those I have eat out of station. So please give me some solution. Thanks.

There are many conditions that can cause knee pain. - ice is useful for the control of pain and swelling. It can be applied to the knee for 15 to 20 minutes as often as every two to four hours. The swollen knee should be elevated above the level of the heart while icing. -activities that cause pain should be avoided temporarily. -if the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities should be avoided until knee pain and swelling resolve: squatting kneeling twisting and pivoting jogging aerobics, dancing playing sport you need detail assessment with a physiotherapist to find out what causing you this pain. Best wishes.

Know Your Pain : Is It Arthritis?

GETTING ACQUAINTED WITH ARTHRITIS

Aches and pains are called different things by different people, but when doctors say arthritis, they are referring to painful inflammation in a joint. In some form of arthritis the inflammation brings with it swelling, pain and redness. The damage occurring in bones and tissues of the joints makes them stiff and often makes movement difficult.Arthritis may be a chronic disease, as opposed to an acute disease, which is serious for a while, is treatable, and goes away with treatment. Some forms of arthritis do not go away but can be controlled with treatment. Treatment can help you lead a normal life and continue your daily activities in a productive way. The treatment for arthritis must continue. In many cases remission occurs. That means the symptoms disappear for a while but may reappear after sometimes. Treatment must be continued to prevent recurrence or to lengthen the amount of time before symptoms flare up again.

MOST COMMON FORMS.

The most common forms of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. In the US over 16 million people have osteoarthritis,  6 million have rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis is sometimes known as the wear-and-tear disease or old age arthritis. It is solely a disease of the joints that occurs with increasingly frequency with age, though it does affect people as early as age 35. It begins gradually and may remain mild for sometime. There is usually little inflammation with this type of arthritis, and it does not cause general illness or affect parts of the body other than the joints. Disability often develops gradually.Rheumatoid arthritis is inflammatory and attacks more than the joints. It may cause disease in the lungs, skin, blood vessels, eyes,spleen, and heart. This is a type of arthritis that can cripple and even kill.It is a chronic disease, but in some cases acute spells occur when inflammation flares up unpredictably. About three times more women have this type than men.In children it may destroy joints and can affect the growth pattern.Three other types of arthritis are much less common. Ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic inflammatory conditionmost common in men,which affects the spine and usually begins in the teens or early twenties.Systemic lupus erythematosus (known a SLE or lupus) is an acute systemic disease related to rheumatoid arthritis. It causes inflammation and damage to joint and organs throughout the body. Sometimes the kidneys, heart, lungs,brain, and blood vessels are affected by inflammation. A common feature of the disease is a skin rash on the face. Ten times more women have SLE than men.Gout, or gouty arthritis, attacks and inflames any of the joints, one at a time. The most common site is the big toe. More men have it than women.

Try some home remedies for your pain- - ice is useful for the control of pain and swelling. It can be applied to the knee for 15 to 20 minutes as often as every two to four hours. The swollen knee should be elevated above the level of the heart while icing. -activities that cause pain should be avoided temporarily. -if the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities should be avoided until knee pain and swelling resolve: squatting kneeling twisting and pivoting jogging aerobics, dancing playing sport specific exercises will help you improve range of motion, strength, and endurance.
