Hi Beverly

We just cannot guess - but pleased that You are going to see an Orthopaedic Consultant.  The MRI will tell the full story.

Best wishes

Hi Bev,
I'm not an expert, but a couple of things that come to mind are bursitis and tendinitis. Either one could cause the pain and swelling. As John says, the MRI should give you the true picture. Good luck and let us know how you make out.
