The left knee hurts

  1. Inflammation of the knee tendons - periarthritis of the "goose paw" bag

1. Osteoarthritis of the knee joint - gonarthrosis

Of the patients who are applying for knee pain , the gonarthrosis of is approximately 30-40%. Osteoarthritis of the knee joint( gonarthrosis) most often affects people older than 40 years. Both one and both knee joints can be affected.

The disease develops gradually over several months or years. First, knee pain is very weak and occurs only after a long walk. Over time, painful sensations increase, pains bother the sick person even when walking for insignificant distances. But it is especially difficult for patients to get lifted from a chair or getting up from their crochets, as well as descending and climbing the stairs. But at rest the knee hardly hurts, and at night sick with gonarthrosis does not wake up almost from pain. An exception to this rule happens if a person has walked too much on the eve and thus overloaded his sore knee.

In the next stage of gonarthrosis, the

knee joint is attached to painful sensations when walking and joint deformation .All manifestations of gonarthrosis( pain, crunch and joint deformity) tend to aggravate over the years. Learn more about gonarthrosis & gt; & gt;

2. Meniscal lesions - meniscopathy

Meniscus( meniscopathy) lesions occur very often - approximately 30-40% of the number of people who have consulted for pain in the knees. Damage knee meniscus happens in people of any age, both young and old. Men and women suffer equally often. As a rule, one knee joint is damaged.

In fact, meniscus damage is a trauma, although in most cases it appears to be on the level ground. And unlike gonarthrosis the disease develops quickly, unexpectedly - most often after unsuccessful movement during walking, running, skiing or jumping.

At the time of injury, a person usually hears a crunch in the knee and feels a sharp pain in the joint, which deprives the victim of the opportunity to move, the ability to make at least a step. Sometimes, after 10-15 minutes, acute pain slightly weakens, a person can move. But the next day or the next day the pain may again increase, and the knee may swell up .At this time, a characteristic distinctive symptom of the pinching of the meniscus - piercing the knee while walking, - is very often manifested in the sensation that the nail was hammered into the knee, or the feeling that the knee during walking is about to break.

Acute period of the disease usually lasts 2-3 weeks, then it becomes easier for the victim. Without proper treatment, the disease can last for years - the pain subsides, then, after some provoking circumstances, appear again( exacerbations usually occur after a heavy load, squats or after unsuccessful movements, after a person stumbles or stumbles).Fortunately, compared with gonarthrosis, meniscopathy rarely deforms the bones of the knee joint, unless the meniscus injury provokes the development of knee arthrosis. And such, it should be noted, happens quite often. In more detail about meniscopathy & gt; & gt; & gt;

3. Arthritis - inflammation of the joints

Arthritis - from 5 to 10% of the number applied for the pain in the knees. Arthritis is affected by people of any age, but most often the onset of the disease falls on young years. With arthritis, both one and both knees can become inflamed.

Knee joints are the most vulnerable joints of the human body. In addition to arthrosis and meniscopathy, knee joints can be affected by any of the arthritides - reactive and rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, gout, Bechterew's disease and articular rheumatism.

A characteristic feature of arthritic inflammation of the knee joint is a rapid onset( 1-3 days), with obvious edema and swelling of the knee, and pain in the inflamed joint at night ( at about 3-4 o'clock in the morning).In other words, at night, at rest, the pain can be stronger than when walking. With arthrosis and meniscopathy, as you remember, at night, pain, on the contrary, decreases.

It should be noted that with arthrosis and meniscopathy, there are also sometimes night pains, but they only occur when moving, trying to get up in the middle of the night or when turning in bed from side to side, and sometimes with an uncomfortable position of the diseased limb during sleep. A person who suffers from arthrosis or meniscopathy, returning to a state of rest or changing an uncomfortable position, can easily get rid of such painful sensations. From the pain caused by arthritis, it's so easy to get rid of us will not succeed."Arthritic" pains usually do not strongly depend on the movement and on the comfortable or uncomfortable position of the affected joint. They seldom manage to be driven away, comfortably settled in bed. Inflammatory pains, as it were, "live their own lives" and sometimes do not react to the position of the joint, or to heat or cold. Most often they can only be reduced by taking anti-inflammatory drugs. In addition, almost any arthritis leads to inflammation of not one, but several joints: in addition to the knees, the joints of the fingers or toes, elbows, ankles and calcaneal tendons become inflamed and swollen in any combination.

4. Arthrosis of the hip joint - coxarthrosis

Hip arthrosis( coxarthrosis) - approximately 3-4% of the number of patients who have consulted for pain in the knees. As we said in the previous section, the diagnosis of "gonarthrosis" is often mistakenly posed with "reflected" pain, often associated with coxarthrosis and coming from the hip joint to the knee.

But these states are very simple to differentiate - with arthrosis of the hip joint knee mobility does not decrease at all, the knee easily and painlessly bends and unbends. But the ability of a person suffering from coxarthrosis is sharply reduced, the leg is rotated "from the hip", legs are spread apart. A person suffering from gonarthrosis, on the contrary, easily rotates the leg from the hip and easily spreads his legs to the sides. But with difficulty bends his knee and squats with pain.

5. Pain caused by blood circulation disorder

Pain caused by circulatory disorders( vascular knee pain) - approximately 5-10% of the number of people who have consulted about pain in the knees. These pains, arising from the worsening of the circulation of the knee joints, are familiar to many people. Usually they begin in adolescence, during a period of active growth, because the development of blood vessels in fast-growing adolescents often does not keep up with accelerated growth of bones.

Once emerged, vascular pain in the knees can accompany a person almost all of life. But their intensity after 18-20 years usually decreases( and does not increase with age, as happens with arthrosis).And unlike arthrosis pain, vascular pain in the knees is not accompanied by a decrease in mobility of the knee joints.

Pain sensations are usually symmetrical, i.e., equally pronounced in the right and left knee;arise when weather changes, in the cold, during colds and after physical exertion. At such times, suffering people complain that they have "knees".In most cases, vascular pains in the knees are easily eliminated by rubbing warming ointments, massage and self-massage( vigorous kneading of the knees) or the use of vasodilator drugs. Special therapy with this condition is not required.

6. Inflammation of the knee tendons - periarthritis of the "goose paw" bag

Inflammation of the knee tendons ( periarthritis of the goose paw) - approximately 10-15% of the number of people who have consulted for pain in the knees. Mostly women are ill, mostly aged over 40 years. Pain usually occurs when walking down the stairs or when wearing heavy weights, heavy bags. With calm walking on a flat surface, painful sensations are extremely rare.

Pain caused by periarthritis does not extend to all knees. It concentrates solely on the inner surface of the knees, about 3-4 cm below the point at which the knees touch, if the legs are brought together. And unlike arthrosis, arthritis and meniscopathy with periarthritis of the "goose-paw" bag, there is no restriction of knee mobility, the leg is bent and unbent in the knee as expected, in full;The knee does not change its shape, does not swell and does not deform.
