    KNEE LIGAMENTS.
    I am a 3 sport athlete in high school (Football, Basketball, Baseball) and dislocated my knee in phy ed playing basketball. I was going to my left playing defense, then had to go my right, pushed off on my left foot, and it popped out of place. My knee cap ended up being up and to the left, the ambulance had to come get me, as no one was comfortable moving me. So now, after keeping my leg up for a long period of time, something in the back of knee starts to get tight. When ever I take the brace off to shower, my knee feels extremely loose and could pop out again at any point. Is this due to ligament damage or is it just common to feel loose after dislocating a bone? If ligament damage, which ligaments do you think I damaged and how bad? How long would it take to recover? I have a mri coming up next week, and will obviously find out more then, but just want to be ready for everything. Any info or advice on this topic would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I know what you are going through as I dislocated my shoulder many years back...depending upon the severity of the damage to the ligaments (the things that connect joints), it may need surgery to recover...I dislocated my left shoulder about 6 years back, and to this day, can not move it in a wrong direct (exert over normal range of motion or put weight on it and extend)...depending upon the results of the MRI, the ortho will determine the extent of damage and the need for surgery, and yes, the feeling of loose joints is common after this sort of injury due to the ligament and nerve damage and may last for several weeks if this is the first time it popped out...hope this helps

    why is there anything on your bed that makes you anxious?...the chills and anxiety can mean a whole lot of things, diabetes, the onset of the flu, allergies, you are really cold, etc... w/o your age and past med hx it's hard to say what's wrong...not that I want that info anyway...go to the doctor and be specific about the symptoms and r/t characteristics such as things that make it worse, better, etc...

    One thing is that after dislocating, your muscles/tendons/ligaments are weak from being overstretched and therefore you need physical therapy or home exercises to help strengthen them. Same thing happened with my ankle, although I tore the tendons. I used to be a punter and I was afraid to punt for a good three months after I did it. I still am not as good as I was before I messed it up.

    Yeah you should be fine by then. The usual 4-6 weeks and you'll be around 85-90%

    Lucky. I just dislocated my finger on Monday, so I have a Grade II sprain/strain (can't remember which, but there is ligament damage) in that finger, plus I still have the strain in my bicep.

    Apparently I'm injury-prone :cry:

    I get plantars warts on my feet several times every year. I've tried many creams and they always take so long to get rid of them. Anyone know of one that gets rid of em nice and fast?
