Knee Pain Symptoms
Your knees’ complexity provides strength and flexibility. However, the complexity also means that several different sections of the knee can cause discomfort. You may experience pain in the front or back of the knee, as well as pain behind the knee or in the inner knee. The symptoms you’re having, as well as their location, can help your doctor in determining the cause.

Some of the most common symptoms include:

• General stiffness and inflexibility
• Crunchy and popping sensations whenever you bend or straighten your knee
• Swelling and redness around the knee joint that’s warm to the touch

While you should seek professional advice with any knee pain, the following symptoms should be evaluated by an expert as soon as possible:

• Inability to stand normally
• Significant swelling
• Limited knee movement
• Pain caused by an injury that does not heal
• A red and swollen knee, accompanied by a fever
