    I dont know if this is the right part to place this, But i am 18 years old and me and my friend were horsing around and i hit the ground hard and after that i had alot of pain in my knee. I went to the doctors and they said that my knee cap was out of place and i had a calcium build up. I never offered to ask about the calcuim build up because i never thought it would be an issue but now i have a shooting pain everytime i try to run my fastest will the build up go away? or will i have to have surgery and get it taken out. :confused:

    Hi there, You haven't mentioned if you've seen an orthopedic surgeon for a consultation about your knee injury, but if you haven't that would be a good place to start to find out what your knee looks like and what if any surgery you may need. Read more about knee injuries by using the WebMD search engine. - Annie
