I'm from delhi. 23 years old and I am taking very abnormal pain in my knees from 6 days. I haven't walked much after the pain started the pain keeps moving in different points limited to my both the knees, sometimes the pain move outer side of the knees sometimes on the symmetrical point of my knee once the pain reached to my tibialis anterior from my knees.

Hello. It is difficult to comment without examination but judging from the symptoms of pain in both knees, and the pain keeps migrating from one knee to another you might require blood investigation to rule out rheumatology causes. If the tests are negative then the cause of pain could be due to reactivate arthritis (usually happens in only one knee), in which case it will subside on its own. For the time being you can take tab Durapain after food twice daily instead of dolowin forte. It might cause acidity so continue taking peptard-d.

It seems you have an ACL injury in the knee. You need to examined and you should have an MRI scan. ACL is an important ligament for stability of knee and injury to ACL or tear of ACL leads to buckling. As you are young and involved in sports. You might need a surgery if there is an ACL tear. I operated a boy who plays international hockey at under 19 level 2 years ago. He came with same symptoms. He is back to playing Hockey without any difficulty.

Shoulder Instability

A shoulder dislocation occurs when the bones of the upper arm snap out of your shoulder blade, generally after suffering a major injury. The joints of the shoulder are the most flexible body joints, thereby, making them more prone to dislocation. In most of the cases, a dislocated shoulder can be fixed within a few weeks’ time with the help of proper diagnosis.
