Knee effusion or swelling of the knee (colloquially known as water on the knee) occurs when excess synovial fluid accumulates in or around the knee joint.
It started with squats and lunges last week. I wrapped it, took some naproxen, and it improved dramatically. That is, until yesterday, when I turned abruptly and it popped up again.
I'll be fine.
Years ago, my Vertebrate Zoology professor was lecturing at the board and he turned to face our class when he gave out a loud, garbled yell. He warned us about how easily you can get hurt when you get old.
My thinking is, getting old sucks, but it beats the alternative.
