inflamation
« on: March 16, 2009, 11:17:43 AM »
I have been in slight discomfort with a throbing pain behind my knee for about six months now. the pain is in the same place all the time and is worse when trying to get to sleep. If you are looking at a knee it is on the right hand side just under the kneecap. I have had an x ray and nothing to report there and have been on anti- inflamitries for ages now. There is no swelling and the tablets work for a while but then the same problem arises during the course. Is there anything more my doctor can do.? Thanks for looking

Sorry about that!  An OS is an ortopeadic surgeron.  You can usually find one that speicalizes in knees, or shoulders or ankles.  If you have not seen one yet, you want to look for someone who is experienced with knees.  X-rays do not always should damage to things like cartilage or other soft tissues.  You may need an MRI also.  Good luck.

Thanks all my doctor said that he thought a fluid sack behind my knee cap was inflamed, but the tablets seem to supress then back to square one.
