Any Ideas??
« on: September 17, 2002, 05:13:37 PM »
Hi, I hope someone can help.
About 6 weeks ago I went on holiday. On the plane my knee became very painful & swollen although I had not injured it. The swelling continued, the inside of my knee became unbearable to touch and I'm getting shooting pains up and down my leg from my knee. I have been in hospital and checked for a cyst and also for a DVT, but my doctors have no idea what is wrong. It has now got to the point where I cannot walk and I have to drag my leg behind me. I am going for a MRI scan in 3 month and have seen a rheumatologist, but still I have no answers.
Have you any ideas of what this might be so I can then ask my doctors about it?

Has your doctor checked you for sciatica?
