Pain indicates inflammation, which means that the joint need rest. If swelling is there and its increasing you need to see a doctor. Xray might be needed. Do not take painkillers without proper diagnosis of the condition.

Hello lybrate-user knee pain could be a sign of early osteo arthritis. You should start with quadricep strengthening exercises along with life style changes such as weight loss avoiding squatting and cross legged sitting. Do get a plain X-ray done of your knees and also start wearing knee cap. Any medication can be prescribed only on seeing the condition of the knee.

Knee Pain - It May be a Sign of Arthritis?

If you are suffering from arthritis, it is important for you to know about how it affects your knee and other joints. Arthritis is a chronic, systematic inflammatory disease which damages your joints and connective tissues. Your knee is commonly affected by arthritis and there are three primary types of arthritis that occur in the knees. They include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and post-traumatic arthritis.

Types of arthritis 
The different types of arthritis affecting the knees occur due to different reasons. Osteoarthritis is a progressive condition, which wears away the joint cartilage over time. Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory condition, which may occur at any age. Post-traumatic arthritis occurs after an injury is inflicted to the knee and may occur several years after a ligament injury or knee fracture.

Major symptoms

  1. Arthritis pain may occur all of a sudden, but commonly develops slowly. In the early stages, the pain is observed in the morning after you have been inactive over the night. Pain is likely when you want to move around. Pain may be experienced even when immobile.
  2. Periodic inflammation is a common symptom of arthritis of the knee. This happens because of the formation of bone spurs or excess fluids in your knee. The swelling gets pronounced after being inactive for a long period. The skin on your knee may look red and feel warm while you touch it. This may lead to chronic inflammation, which is very difficult to manage.

Treatment
There are several ways of treating knee arthritis. The mode of treatment depends on the severity and cause of knee arthritis. NSAIDS or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are commonly prescribed for dealing with arthritis pain temporarily. Other medicines used for knee arthritis treatment are as follows:

  1. Analgesics, which help in pain reduction act as good alternatives to NSAIDS.
  2. Corticosteroids are used for reducing inflammation.
  3. Certain DMARDs or disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs are used.

Certain injections that are used for helping with knee arthritis. They include:

  1. Hyaluronic acid supplements, which ease the pain and inflammation by lubricating your knee joints.
  2. Corticosteroid injections also soothe inflammation and pain.

You may also require a surgery for dealing with knee arthritis when other modes of treatment fail. The most common surgeries are as follows:

  1. Total joint replacement, where your knee is replaced with a prosthetic made of metal, plastic or ceramic.
  2. Osteotomy, where the knee bones are modified for controlling pressure and damage in the knees.
  3. Arthroscopy, where an incision is made in the knee for removing damaged parts.

It is recommended for you to consult a doctor, if you experience any symptom of knee arthritis. Early treatment will prevent the condition from worsening.

Hello lybrate-user as I can see from the information provided the pain is being caused due to overweight. Please work on weight loss and the knee pain would settle. Also attend a physiotherapy clinic that should be helpful for you.

I am 42 serving as a soldier, recently met with an accident and sustained injury to Rt knee thereby not able to hold weight. Presently on 28 days sick leave with knee immobilizer without any medication. Underwent MRI Scan and the report revealed "multifocal marrow contusion oedema with significant synovial effusion, Gd II/III tear ACL and Gd II/III tear of MCL with associated fluid along medial meniscus-capsular attachment and associated myocellulitis. Dr. advised as follows :- ACL/MCL Rupture - Adv Operation. Request provide a second opinion and further course of action that will be required to cure my knee to normalcy. Please provide duration of treatment/mode of surgery/likely time to recover fully etc. Thanking you in anticipation.

Hello. You have injured your anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligament along with medial meniscus also. Cruciate and collateral ligament injuries can give rise to knee instability and significant pain also. Weight bearing will be a problem as you are experiencing. Most tears of ACL are complete or near complete (grade 3). Multiple ligament injury usually requires early surgical intervention as your doctor has adviced. The torn ligament is replaced by a tissue graft so that it can regenerate again. This procedure is performed arthroscopically, with minimal incision. Braces are given to prevent knee instability. Anti inflammatory drugs and rehabilitation programme (exercises) will help you regain your stength. But surgery might be unavoidable. Takes around 6 months time for full recovery.

Quite often, I experience pain in my knee or ankle or foot fingers or other joints of legs. Even there is some mild pain in the upper back also. I got my knee examined by X-ray and even by MRI. Orthopedician told me that there is a mild beginning of osteoarthritis. A few months back my uric acid level was also 9.1 which was brought down by taking Febucip tablet for two months. Now on the advice of doctor I have been taking Durajoint GM (2 OD for one month and 1 OD for two months). I had same problem aboutfour years back also and I got cured by similar allopathic treatment. As I am fed up with allopathic medicine, can you suggest some ayurvedic medicine which will take care of future problems of Uric acid and Arthritis.

Hello lybrate-user. osteoarthritis is a lifestyle related condition along with age related degeneration. For a good control along with the medication you will have to make lifestyle changes. Continue the durajoint gm and also start with collagen peptide granules. For your gout get a 24 hour uric acid excretion done and continue the medicine you are taking at present.

Congratulations for embarking on the healthy way and loosing 10 kgs. You should start specific exercises for the knee which focus on strengthening your quadriceps and hamstrings. Avoid stair climbing /squatting and sitting cross legged. Do swimming and cycling instead. You may need Cartilage supplements based on further evaluation. Regards.

Hello lybrate-user, If your knee pain is persistent for the past few months and is not going despite medications and rest, you need to consider getting an MRI of knee joint done. Pop sounds from the knee can be due to Loose bodies/meniscal tear/ligamentous injury etc and needs to be clinically examined. Regards.

Hi, Yes, it can be worn while walking, running, lifting heavy weights, etc. It helps to keep the joint in position. But do not wear it while sleeping; it will hinder the blood flow.
