Calcium build up behind knee
DanielBlas posted:
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:
