Knee and leg pain repeatedly


Q: Do i need to go hospital?

Symptoms:  i fell a week ago & moved a bone by my knee cap 2 inches to the left for the 3rd time,i lost sensation,the skin bruised & dented & i can't sit/stand for more than 10 minutes,often getting ligament/tendon spasms’.often click my knee,which sounds like bones grinding.

A:   Thanks for consulting us. Your patella (knee cap) might be displaced, that is causing the symptoms. Patellar dislocation can be due to wrong placement of leg while running or direct trauma. Recurrent dislocation can damage knee joint. Consult Orthopedician and follow his advice.
