    Knee injury

    Am suffering from a recurring minor knee injury which seems to crop up almost instantly in my right knee when working knee strikes, on pads etc.

    There is a thick noodle type structure (vein?) which appears and persists on top of the knee, for several hours, followed by inflammation and then bruising the next day.

    Not so much of an issue, am resting/icing/elevating - just want to know if anyone else has experienced this, and can tell me what it is or if its something more serious?

    Cheers

    Go see a doctor! Especially when it's a reocurring problem.

    How can people on the internet know what you have got? Doctors don't diagnose over the internet and most of us here are more specialized in creating injuries then healing them.

    Thanks for taking the time to write this valuable reply.

    Obviously I will go and see a doctor if I feel that is necessary. Right now it's 9:30 PM on a monday evening and a doctor is not at my immediate disposal, nor do I feel its a terribly pertient issue to my well-being. What I do have access to is a forum of people who may have experienced this type of injury or similar and be able to give me some worthwhile advice on the issue.

    What I gave you is valuable advice. So I really hope that the above sentence isn't meant sarcastic.

    A vein transports blood, so if their is a chance on an (small) internal bleeding in one of the most important joints of the human body isn't considered a pertient issue, well what is then?
    It's reoccuring, so consider it pertient

    See a doctor tomorrow, not a forum tonight.

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer.

    It could be a bursa that's filling with fluid: http://orthopedics.about.com/cs/pate...eebursitis.htm

    Nevertheless, "go see a doctor" is absolutely the best medical advice you'll ever get on an internet message board. In fact, giving any other advice would be fucking retarded under the circumstances, so try not to be such a jackass about it.

    100% agree on the suggestion that seeing a medical health professional is the best course of action.
    Recurring injuries will do just that - re-occur - unless they are treated and are given enough time to heal.

    Remember, knees are... complicated.

    DAMN, that's what's wrong with me. Guess I'm off to the doc as well.

    Someone else +rep this for me. I've been trying to figure out what's wrong with my knee for ages, and I'm about 95% sure this is the injury in question (or at least one of them). I'm going in for a diagnostic ultrasound in a few weeks, and according to this ("Emergency Ultrasound", page 514 in case the link doesn't work), prepatellar bursitis should show up.

    I had to +rep him as well, ostensibly for the edit reason at the bottom of the post, but also for Russ.
