    My knee gets burning up hot....What the hell??

    Ok I know that I'm about to sound like a hypochondriac lol but I swear, this has been happening for a long while now, and I'm really starting to wonder what's going on.

    It used to be that both of my knees will randomly get BURNING up hot and very very red. It doesn't hurt or anything, it just gets red. It's like all the blood is rushing to my knees or something. Lately, it's just been my left knee...

    ....Has anyone else experienced this or know what could be going on? Probably not, cuz it's totally random, but I thought I'd ask.

    Arthritis? My mother has rhuematoid athritis and this happens to her. It happens to me sometimes too but in my hands. Check with your dr but maybe look up an anti-inflammatory diet.

    ive had many knee injuries, and that sounds like fluid on the knee. I had bursar sac injuries in football that happened just like that.

    When are these happening? Is the knee swelling?

    Woah, arthritis? I sure hope not. I'm 20 lol way too young for all of that. Hmm...I have no idea what arthritis feels like, but my right knee has been bothering me for at least 2 years now. Just a dull pain that's annoying when I'm walking around, going up steps, swimming, and dancing ballet.

    And coldplay, it's hard to say exactly when it happens. Totally randomly, it seems. I'll have to tune into when it happens more. I notice it in the evening, but I think that's just because I'm not totally focused on class, studying, work, or whatever; I'm at home and sitting around and actually notice the things going on with my body. It also seems to happen pretty frequently after I swim laps.

    I've never noticed swelling. I just looked at it and compared to my other knee, and it's difficult to tell, because it's just so red--which looks bad, but it doesn't actually look like it's swollen. Perhaps a tiny bit, but nothing noticeable.

    This happens to me ALL of the time. I think my years of playing hockey are finally catching up to me. After any sort of workout where my knees are involved I'll instantly get swelling and they get SUPER hot. And my knees make crazy amounts of noise when moving them (especially walking down stairs). They can also get hot and swolen at random times too. I've tried looking into it, doing the physical therapy, but nothing has helped me. Docs have said the only thing that will help me is if I get surgery but I'd rather not as that will put me down for months.

    Is there swelling on that knee? I've had bursitis, or "water on the knee" from when I unceremoniously landed on my knees after toppling off a horse while jumping (long story) and there was localized swelling and warmth, but it was due to trauma and it lasted about a year. I also had a ripped iliotibial band in the same knee, which is the connective tissue from the knee to the hip, due to carrying too much weight up a mountain. Both times, the heat and swelling was due to injury of some kind. So is your issue on a knee that was previously injured, or is this just a random heat with no swelling? I would think that any increase in temperature without injury would b due to increase in blood flow for some reason. I know that pre-arthritic people can get warmth in joints without necessarily experiencing swelling or pain, just due to a change in weather, or a low pressure system going by. Let us know. I'm curious!

    Surgery? Yikes. It's annoying, but it ain't that annoying lol if it ever gets to be physically unbearable, it's something I would consider doing.

    I am a big time ballet dancer, do you think that could have anything to do with it? Although, I don't even dance hardly ever anymore (hence the lap swimming) since I'm away at school, but I danced ballet for several hours 6 days a week for 10 years. Any chance this could be a result from that? Or are you saying that the problem was already there, and your hockey just pissed it off?

    That could be it.......knees are not meant to be held at odd angles for extended periods of time.They are also the weakest joint in the body. Repetitive strain can really do a number on joints.

    Also too arthritis is not just an old person's disease. I have had it since I was 9. I have 3 fingers on my writing hand that are permentantly crippled from trauma and arthritis.

    No ma'am, no major injuries to either of my knees. And as for the swelling, see my above post for details. But in short, no, there is not noticeable swelling. Just red and steaming hot as to where I have to put a cool washcloth on to try and bring it back down to a somewhat normal temperature. Even when I hold my hand over my knee, I can feel a ton of heat rising off of it.

    I had no idea other people experienced this! Good to know I'm not just paranoid and insane lol.

    Wow, really? I'm terribly sorry to hear that. Do you think this is something I should get a doctor's opinion on? I definitely don't want to cripple anything.
