10/12/2010

Question:

1. i started learing how to drive a truck, i use my left knee to push down the clutch,after a while i feel pain like behind the kneecap..it goes away after i stop driving. 2. When im working out using a leg press, ill push on the machine with my legs and u can hear like crackleing noise and after a few reps the pain will come again from behind the knee cap 3. Every so often it will feel like my left knee loses stability

Answer:

Although a diagnosis and treatment recommendations cannot be made over the Internet, pain around or behind the knee cap is termed "patellofemoral pain."

If you perform a "Search" of the NetWellness website using this term, you'll achieve 35 "hits" at present, which will provide considerable information, some or much of which may be useful to you.
