View Full Version : Body issues

I have two problems I want to talk about, one strech marks, the other knees.

The strech marks issue is super confusing since I haven't gained any weight, lost any either, in fat or muscle. Plus I haven't really grown any in two years. Yet strech marks are appearing on my hips and one on my upper arm. This is confusing since I have not done anything to cause these to happen.

Next is the knee problem. Every now and then I'll acidentally have a bone...I don't know...pop?Slip? out of place around my knee. I have always been able to put it back into place, but it is worrying. since when I don''t feel any pain. Exccept in my head, almost like a migrane but a lot weaker.

I feel a little awkward saying this as you identify as neutral but, if you're biologically male, you will naturally grow a certain amount of muscle mass and that will cause some stretch marks (happens with me even though I don't really work out) and it's perfectly natural. I assume it's the same with growth in biological females, sometimes it isn't what you've done but what your body is naturally doing behind the scenes.

The clicking you describe in your knee might indicate that you have a stretched or torn ligament. I suggest seeing your doctor, who might refer you to an orthopedic surgeon. I'm not saying you need surgery. A referral to a physical therapist might help strengthen various ligaments. The concern is that you might seriously hurt your knee while running or playing sports- then you will need surgery.

For the stretch marks, I found some good information on the LiveStrong website regarding cause & treatment suggestions. Check out that site for "stretch marks without losing weight."

ShineintheDark It's okay we only use that since we have both guys and girls in the system-more than one mind/person/soul in a body-.

It is perfectly normal to get stretch marks. All people get some at some point in different areas for different reasons.
As far as your knee and head pain I suggest a visit to your doctor. Sounds like that is the best thing to do in my opinion.

I did go, he has referred me to a orthepedic doctor, since all my problems right now are relaated to the bones.
