I woke up with an inflamed right knee, and I don’t know how I got it?

Hi, so yesterday, I woke up with an inflamed right knee, and I don’t know how I got it. Prior to the inflammation my knee was perfectly fine, no pain, no inflammation, and I don’t recall using my knee or having an “intense” work out that stresses out my knee. However, I do kneel a lot when I’m working (as a stocker). Now, the inflammation still persist, but not as worse as when I noticed it.

More information; 10 years ago, I was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis (cant remember which type)

Thanks for the query..

Well the inflammation dose not need to be due to any serious concern and can be due to any insect bite, hitting accidentally or twisting or bending..

So you need not to worry and keep a watch on the symptoms and see if it improves..

You can take anti inflammatory painkillers like Ibuprofen for relief..

Hope this helps..

You can also do cool compresses over the inflamed part and while lying down elevate the feet..

If you see any worsening of symptoms of if there is no improvement consult an Emergency room and get evaluated..
