Hey, I've just recently started having knee popping/locking problems. A couple of weeks ago I did slip in some water on the floor but felt no pain and yet ever since I have had this trouble. Most of the pain seems to be at nite but when I do normal every day work it pops and cracks and then if I sit too long it locks and it hurts real bad to get it out. A few years ago I fell through a deck and injured the same leg but healed fine and then a couple of years ago I fell on a cement sidewalk and injured my hip, due to family problems,I just couldn't go to the doctor and have had trouble with that ever since but just learned to live with it. This pain in my knee is much worse and is driving me totally insane. I don't have insurance and no income and in fact our car was repossessed and our home is about to be repossessed. I get on the computer at the library so that helps but the facts are I can't afford to go to the doctor. any home remedies I might be able to try? thanks.

  • There is such a condition called tricho rhino phalangeo syndrome. It's found in the blood work. Causes knees to pop out. I've had dislocation of the knees and is terribly painful when it happens and gross. Have seen it happen to basketball players on the court a few times. Keep your knee wraped up in an ace bandage till the doc. It's probably from your hip most likely, it could be out of alignment and maybe some steroids would help for a bit. Good luck sorry about your repossesions.

  • Thanks for the help! Unfortunately, I still can not go to the doctor and am doing the best that I can with managing the pain. I have no transportation and walking is getting to be too painful so we will see as time passes but wanted to let you know I appreciated the response.

  • The "blood disease" you mentioned has nothing to do with knee symptoms. Here is the link to the disorder you refer to.http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/t/trichorhinophalangeal_syndrome_type_1/signs.htm
