Patient :I have knee pain and I was wondering what it could be? It's on the lateral side of my left knee. There is minor swelling and it's warm to the touch. Sometimes when I am walking it feels like my femur is falling onto my lower leg bones and it impairs my walking for a short time.
Thank you for posting your query on ATD.

Till then mobilisation exercises of knee joint and analgesic such as ibuprofen are of help in reducing pain and swelling.
