i have throbbing pain behind knee. it gets intense a few timesd a day.
i was rushed to hospital with the pain, but they found no clot or cyst.
my doctor said i must have just sprained it and it would go away with time. it hasn't. ive had pain for about a month. it feels like my nerve is been pulled by a knife. my job is looking after children and i kneel and bend alot.

  • I'm no expert but being a college football player I can tell you that bending over like you do numerous times of the day can make your knee get pretty irritated. I have the same problem with my knees an I had gotten physical therapy for this problem. my therapist told me that I can have runners knee, being i'm always on my knees and the motion from being down on your knees to coming back up basically doing a deep squat witch can make you inner muscle on your quad bigger then the outer muscle and can cause some major discomfort in your knees. If you like a can give you some small exercise that might help strengthen your knee so its not hurting as bad.let me know,Mike

  • My knees were very painful and limited my activities. Walking was difficult; pain with every step. Going downstairs was almost impossible–upstairs was no picnic, either. I also had a "pulling" sensation behind one knee. I had bilateral arthroscopic "de-briding" surgery where the surgeon cleans out torn cartilage, bone chips and foreign matter from the knee joint. That was three years ago. Today, after physical therapy and a continuing exercise program, I feel like a new person.I suggest seeing an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in knees.
