Pressure on knee and stiffness

Customer Question

Pressure on knee and stiffness
Submitted: 16 days ago.
Category: Medical
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 16 days ago.

Hello. I'm Dr Chip
Any injury involved?

Any swelling or bruising?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
I don’t think it’s injured. It’s both my knees but my left one is the worst
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 16 days ago.

It's probably bursitis

For now I suggest rest, ice and ibuprofen

But if it doesn't resolve in two days you'll need to see your doctor for cortisone injections

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
ah it’s been going on for 2 months it’s just been getting worse
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 16 days ago.

Then you need to see your doctor now

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
What could it even be?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 16 days ago.

Probably bursitis but it could be a torn meniscus

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Does that mean because I get muscle spasms in my legs too
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 16 days ago.

That would be part of it

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
It just doesn’t rly make sense
