I was diagnosed with OA in both my knees by an Orthopedic proffessor 7 years ago after having x-rays, CT and bone density test. Now after moving to this country a Rheumatologist i went to said i don`t have anything wrong in my knees (after doing x-ray) and he doesn`t know why i have pain. My knees are in pain- have been for 12 years now. Now that this doctor gave me a med (IC Etodolac) for the pain it`s much much better but still "attacks" from time to time and when it does- i can`t stand or walk (The pain is right in the middle of the knee).
If there`s nothing wrong- how come i suffer so much?!
Can they diagnose or -dismiss diagnosis only by doing x-rays?
Should I ask for other tests and if so which?
I have to find out what`s going on in there!
