    Knee Swollen for two weeks - Should I be scared?

    All,
    About two weeks ago, I twisted my knee while rolling. I had a bit of pain and the knee puffed up nicely. Two days later the pain went away for the most part. However, the swelling persisted.

    Fast forward two weeks, I'm lifting weights fine and just returned from my first Muay Thai class (a blast BTW). However, I still have fluid around the knee that bounces when I run. I also experience a little pain when I push on the outside of the knee.

    Note - I'm 40, so I'm used to injuries taking awhile to heal. However, two weeks is making me consider making an appointment with a doctor. (Actually, the guy that hurt my knee is a doctor. But, he has not been at class lately..)

    Does anyone have experience/advice with this situation?

    Thanks and Regards

    Here's hoping that you go to the doctor and that it's only water on the knee.

    In that order.

    You have to care about your knee but there is nothing about over scaring. Be relax.

    It's doctor time buddy but in truth it's prob Nothing. I think this maybe a case of you just note giving it proper time to heal and you keep aggravating it by continuing to train, Hitting pads and rolling .

    Agree with others, probably time to see the Doctor.

    It might just be that you didn't give it enough time to heal. By this I mean that you have engaged in Load bearing exercise (Weights/Running) a bit sooner than the knee might have been ready for?

    Why not wait a while and then ask your Doctor friend to take a look at it?

    Good Luck.

    Have you been icing your knee? That will usually help with the swelling, but you should consider seeing a doctor

    All,
    Thanks for the advice! (Of course. now my wife is saying ;"See? The whole world agrees. Go to the fricking Doctor!"..)

    Went to the Doc @lunch and I'll be getting an MRI next week. His advice, lay off anything that twists or bangs the knee until we know how much damage exists. Hoping it is a simple sprain that I have not let heal because I kept the same activity level.

    Regards

    Yeah, usually in those cases it's the excess fluid (in the bursa) so you use ice, compression and elevation. Heat can actually make more fluid.

    I'd also wear a knee sleeve to keep things warm when training, also helps the joints not slip (and avoid tears as they are warm etc). 38 here, so I know your pain man ;).
