pain especially when driving?
« on: October 16, 2002, 08:43:16 AM »
      I have developed a problem with my right knee on the inside and all the way down to my ankle.  It started about a month ago while I was driving.  I did not injure it.  I am not athletic.  I have some swelling but nothing unusual (water).   I do have a small sore that is red and will not heal just above my ankle on the front of my leg.
It does not hurt to walk on it , but I do feel I am dragging it.  It has become almost impossible to drive or cross my leg.  The pain is increasing daily and has started hurting even when I am standing.  It is not hot or throbbing.  It hurts inside,  touching it doesn't cause pain.  Any input would help. I am trying to decide what type of doctor to go to.  Thanks.

I would suggest you see your GP. A.S.A.P. (just in case) and they can reccommend what type of specialist to see.
2 ACL 'reco's', 3 'scopes', Pain, JRA, EDS, RSD, CMP, osetochondral defect & #, synovitis, adhesions, nerve damage, foot drop, MCL damage, tendonitis, fibrosis, ligament damage AGAIN, dislocations +++

I agree. Start with your primary physician and if they can't treat it, they'll tell you who to see. I also agree that it's time to do it now. Don't wait if things are getting worse! Good luck.

Torn quad tendon repair & VMO advancement 4/99, MUA with LOA 10/99, Patella baja and arthrofibrosis, LR & medial release & LOA 5/01, LOA & chondroplasty 6/03,TKR on 11/06, MUA 12/06. From perfect knees to a TKR in 7 years, all from a fall on a wet floor...and early undiagnosed scar tissue.
