Knee pain comes back after a while

Answered by: Dr Nur Syuhada binti Zulkifli

I am 27years old, working in the food service field. Most of the time I spent my work standing.
I go for jogging and walking everyday too. One day, my left knee felt twisted and it was painful when I was running, so I stopped doing any physical activities for almost 2 months to rest and the pain went away. However, I could still pray normally, no need to use a chair whatever.

Then I started slowly again with my jogging routine. My knee felt fine. However, recently there was this intense pain coming back, and now I feel like I cannot walk or run anymore, and the pain is more severe than the moment I twisted my knee that time. Usually I rest the knee and it will get better, but not this time around. The pain didn’t go away, in fact it’s still here in the knee and my calf too.

I understand this might be related to meniscus, ligament, ACL, PCL injuries, however
If Dr can help explain, how do the symptoms differ? Does this happen a lot to a 20++ years old guys like me?
Also, what are the common options for treatments, if let’s say it’s a tear?

Thank you so much.

Thank you for choosing us to get an opinion regarding your health issues.

Based on your explanations, you are worried about the pain on your knee and enquiring about the symptoms for damage of any anatomical structures of your knee. I will do my best to explain your condition.

For your information, knee pain can be caused by anatomical structures on your knee or due to some underlying diseases. Below are some of the additional symptoms if you are experiencing knee pain due to injury anatomically:

  1. Popping sound when it happened or when you move your knee
  2. Swelling
  3. Stiffness
  4. Pain during movements of your knee
  5. Difficulty in straightening your knee

Usually different connective tissue tear in the knee will inhibit different range of movement. However, detail examination should be conducted by a doctor to make sure of the diagnosis.

Knee injury is common in young people who play sport or physically active, therefore it is not impossible in your case.

You are adviced to seek medical attention for an accurate diagnosis and early treatments to prevent further injuries to the knee.

I hope the above statement does help you in a way and if you need further assistance and explanations from us, you can talk to our doctor or our specialist online. Thank you.
