My right knee is swollen quite a bit and is very painful.

Customer Question

My right knee is swollen quite a bit and is very painful. The swelling is just to the inside of the knee and the pain radiates to front of knee and down the shin
JA: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?
Customer: It hurts when I sit down after walking or when I lay down at night
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Not that I know. I am 59 years old. And I am over weight
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.
