Patient's Query

Hello doctor.

My knee joint occasionally moves abruptly in unforeseen circumstances. It moves to the left and then returns to its original place. There is severe pain and swelling at times. For days, I have been unable to fold my legs.

Please help


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I suggest you take the following tablets:

Take a tablet of Flexon (Ibuprofen and Paracetamol) twice a day for 10 days after food, a tablet of Rabeprazole (proton pump inhibitor) 20 mg once a day for 10 days before food, a tablet of Shelcal CT (Calcium) 500 mg once a day for 30 days before food, a tablet of vitamin D (60 k) once daily for 10 days, then once a month for 11 months. Take these pills only if you are not allergic to them, and avoid taking them if you have bronchial asthma. In the event of any adverse responses, follow up immediately. Activities that cause pain should be avoided for the time being. Squatting, kneeling, twisting and pivoting, jogging, aerobics, dancing, and sports should be avoided until the knee discomfort and swelling subside. Wear a hinged knee brace all day and remove it at night to provide support to the knee joint. Apply cold packs for 15 minutes twice a day. Obtain a plain MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) of the affected knee joint.

I hope this helps.

Thank you.

Probable diagnosis

The most probable diagnosis is Idk knee (internal knee derangement).

Regarding follow up
