My knee won't stop popping and the pain is worse

Posted , 6 users are following.

My right knee keeps poppin in and out. Also im walking on my heel because i can't put full weight on my right knee. Plus it feels swollena nd won't stop popping in and out. No pain meds have helped at all. I have ried to talking to the nurse. Going up and down the stairs hurts so much that it takes me a while to get up and down the stairs.

    Haven't had popping but seen on this forum that others have. As for stairs not sure how many weeks you are but until eleven I didn't manage to go up and at fourteen I can just about get down in a normal way holding tight to bannister. If pain meds aren't working change to stronger one and make sure you ice frequently it numbs pain . Good luck

    You need an MRI and visit with an orthpod immediately before you do more damage. Sounds like possible meniscus but won't be able able to be diagnosed without the test. Don't settle for a simple x-ray. Walking on it with pressure is inviting trouble. For now, rest, ice and elevate. first thing, go to an emergency room and get help.

    I may have missed something but don't see anything tha tells me you have had any medical attention yet.

    Had the same problem but my doctor said it was soft tissue damage which never improved after three months with no sign of referring me to anyone I paid private for a MRI scan . In hindsight I should have just gone to casualty and insisted on one. Don't leave it as my knee was a chrondral flapped on the knee which locked it. Best of luck

    Go and see your consultant ASAP to get it orted as no one else can. You dont say how long it is but you should be able to take full weight by 4 weeks
