Well like I said I have been referred to orthopaedics. It's general orthopaedics for now though. Although the pain is in the knee it can be caused because of a problem with the hip or other things so not a knee specialist yet.
However with the new NHS thing being rolled out. The choose and book. I found out there is a specialist knee consultant not far in Rotherham (Im in Sheffield, Rotherham is right next door. Litrally walk along one road and you cant tell where one begins and the other ends) So I will probably go to him if it is definately a knee problem. And I am notorious for not showing up problems well on x-rays anyway.
When I broke my arm I had 4 set's of wrist x-rays and 1 set of arm x-rays. First x-ray was a specific wrist x-ray which showed nothing but because of where the pain was I was sent to the fracture clinic. They did the same set of x-rays so this is now exactly 2 weeks after and that showed nothing but they stuck me in a cast just in case. 3rd week they did ANOTHER set of wrist x-rays and arm x-rays. This one actually showed a break that went vertically 1/4 way down my arm. 4th week was another wrist one because I was still getting pain in that one area where the break was but it wasnt showing on x-rays now. They knew it was broken but it wouldnt show. I have really dense bones apparently and my body has a tendancy to heal fast so it obscured all the images
Same with my sister. She had knee pain too but they were convinced when they couldnt see anything that it was all in her head. Her knee then gave way and she was on crutches for over a year and is still having physio over 16 years later. Just worried that will happen to me is all.
