Hi Jak,

This story sounds familiar to me.

Not trying to scare you, but just be a bit weary of them suggesting you may have a nerve problem in your back that refers pain to your knee. I got referred to a pilates instructor that was a physio who was suggesting this. However, my problem clearly came from my knee and ended up having surgery to fix the problem.

I know you've probably been through the mill seeing different doctors, but have you actually seen a sports physician/doctor ? They often have a good understanding of knee problems.

My knee surgeon also doesn't think that seeing a pain management specialist is the answer. The last thing you need is to be drugged out and not functioning properly !

Not trying to scare you, just a thought. :D

thanks for replying. the only reason that they suspect a nerve problem in my back, is because the xrays and the MRI of my knee, came out almost perfect. nothing was there, so they thought nothing was wrong, and just sent me to a PM doc.


thanks again,
jak ;D
