I am 50 years old, suffering from joints pain which shifts from one joint to another. What should I do ?
Respected Doctor, I've worked in some bulk drugs company for 8 months. Being a production chemist I should stand for 9 hours per day daily, due to that my knees are started paining. My knees weakening day by day and pain also that's why I'm resigned to that job. It's been 1 year, but still I'm getting knee pain when I'm walked for 1 km and felt like tired while sleeping at night everyday. Please tell me how to improve my knees strength. Thank you in advance.
Hi, I am 27 years old. I have problems with balance which manifests itself after working on computers for few hours. I couldn't stand and urinate without holding something. All physical medical exams did not report any issues apart from an MRI of the upper back reporting cervical lordosis. I go through some scary episodes of imbalance while returning home from office. I have a history of anxiety and has been taking various anxiolytics for 8 years now and under the supervision of a psychiatrist. Currently I am taking Rexipra 10, Petril Beta 10, Prestiq 50. At office I am good at work but the persistent imbalance is hampering my career.
Knee pain is characterized by a feeling of pain in the knee joint caused by injury or overuse. The knee joint consists of small bone structures, the kneecap, supporting ligaments and cartilage of the knee. This joint bears the full weight of the body, which makes it very vulnerable to injury.
Causes of knee pain
Knee pain is usually caused by injuries to the knee such as exposure to a direct force on the knee, abnormal twisting of the knee or falling on your knees. Some causes of knee pain are -
- Knee strains and sprains - Overworking the knee joints can damage the tissues of the knee joint resulting in knee sprains and strains
- Osteoarthritis - it is condition where the protective cartilage around the kneecap is damaged, resulting in knee pain
- Bursitis - Excessive movement of the knee or kneeling down for extended periods can irritate the bursa (a fluid sac below the skin above the knee joint) that causes swelling and pain, thereby giving rise to this condition
- Gout - This condition is characterized by the accumulation of uric acid in crystal form around the knee joint, causing inflammation and pain
- Tendon disorders - Tendons connect the muscles to the bones, and overworking the knee can cause the tendons around the knee to become sore and painful
- Kneecap dislocation - Injuries may cause the kneecap to shift out of its position, this causes swelling and pain in the knee joint
Symptoms of knee pain
Severe knee pain can restrict movements such as walking or standing. The symptoms vary according to the extent of the damage suffered by the knee. Most common symptoms of knee pain are problems in climbing stairs, inability to extend the knees, limping and swelling of the knee joint. In some cases, knee pain may also cause fever.
