Hi doctor,

Two years ago, I was injured while playing volleyball. I ignored the pain around my kneecap at that time, and it was fine after a week. After a year, I started getting sudden pain in my right knee. The pain is like locking the knee joint. The pain becomes severe while riding a bike. There is no particular time or prediction for the pain. I am attaching a report of digital x-ray as well as the picture. Please provide me with the interpretation and treatment. I am 33 years old. I have high BP and cholesterol. I am on Tazloc Trio 40 and Rosukem 5.



Welcome to

  • There is no obvious bony injury (attachment removed to protect patient identity), but your ligaments might be a problem while you sustained the trauma.
  • Is there any swelling? If the pain is not coming down or becoming more in spite of treatment, then you need to get an MRI of the knee joint to see a ligament damage.

Investigations to be done:

MRI knee joint.

Treatment plan:

In the meantime, I suggest you tablet Dolonex DT (Piroxicam) once a day and tablet Ultracet P (Tramadol and Paracetamol) twice a day. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take medicine with the consent of your doctor.

Hi doctor,

There is no swelling at all. I do not know why this happen frequently. Is the above x-ray not enough for detecting ligament issue?



Welcome back to

  • X-ray cannot detect ligament injury. It is for bony structure only.
