Well, your post says you have bone on bone. That causes pain. Obviously nobody here can tell you for certain what's causing your pain. I'm sure you know it's time to see a doctor.

Hi Bev,

Sorry you've got a bad problem- :'(

How did the problem start?-accident?-Have you had MRI's etc...?-How was the problem described?

Meniscus?-maybe ligament laxity has caused the tibia/femur to grind through the meniscus so its not there anymore or if it is there is torn to the articulated surface of the tibial plateau and gone through some articular cartilage on tibia or femur hence pain = arthritic syndrome-----horrid........... :(
