My knee has been dislocating since I’ve been 16 years old. I’m 48 now. Every emergency room and orthopedic I have been to keep telling me I’m perfectly fine. Over the years it has become so easy for it to shift. It can happen when I’m stretching or when I turn my legs a certain way. I experience the numbness from the knee down, and extreme pain and swelling. I can’t walk when this happens. The longest it has stayed displaced is a week. It slides back in on its own, and I can walk again like nothing happened. I don’t know what kind of doctor can help me..

My knee dislocated about 6 years ago now while I was playing touch rugby. I went to step and it popped out and then popped back in straight away. I fell to the ground as the pain was unbearable. I am lucky my brother in-law had his crutches with him as he had broken his leg a few months earlier. As I was walking back to the car I felt like fainting as the pain was sooo bad. When I went to the doctor the next day he had taken 6 syringes of blood out of my knee as it was swollen. I didn't go back to the doctor after that and regret it to this day. In the last 6 years I haven't been able to play any type of sports as my knee keeps popping out. I only wish I had gone and got it checked out back then..
