Random knee pain and swelling?

I have been having major joint problems. In my hips mainly, but my knees aren't far behind. I'm 15 years old, and decently active (because my horse)

I was just sitting on my couch doing nothing last night, and I got a sharp pain in my knee. I can't really explain where... I guess the bottom kinda, bottom inside sorta. On my right knee. When I went to rub it it was swollen and still is. It keeps hurting off and on, same place and outside of my knee. Plus the top above my knee-cap when I put weight on it to step.

I'm going to the doctor, bone specialist, tomorrow for my hip. I'll ask about my knee... does anyone else have this issue??

Oh yeiks! And its horrible you're 15 and have bad joint problems, you don't need that! I have no idea what it can be.

Definitely ask tomorrow. And don't let them just brush it off. You may have just twisted it or popped it sideways funny throughout the day and never noticed it until the swelling was at its fullest.

I damaged my knee when I was 14. Had a horse slam my leg against a fence. The doctor didn't take it seriously, just a sprain, it'll heal. He wouldn't take knee pain in someone so young and active seriously until a year later I was still bruised and swollen some days. X-rays confirmed that I had damaged the ligaments in the knee and my knee cap wasn't being held in place as snugly as it should be. I'm susceptible to bone chips in my knee now and it still causes me pain some days even years after I finished physio.

So basically, who knows what you did, it could be something simple, but if it stays hurting, don't let a doctor just pass it off. But seeing as you already have a specialist taking a look at your joints, I doubt they will just pass you over from being young. But bone specialist may not have much to say if its a muscle/tendon/ligament issue.

I got xrays today for my hip, and an MRI scheduled next week. Plus I'll get another xray and MRI for my knee sometime this month

No, he said he wants to deal with my hip first. He thinks its snapping hip syndrome. It has a different name but that I what I means haha

Ouch that don't sound good! Popping joints isnt fun! My left knee pops/ snaps etc. alot cause of a tumor and my right one pops wicked bad and loud, I don't know why.

I do! I have knee problems though, not sure what exactly is wrong but one clicks more so than the other and hurts whereas the other one is fine.

Hope you're okay!! Stretching before and after riding is VERY VERY VERY VERRRRYYY important. Trust me!
