Hello all! I have a knee problem and I need a little clarity. I injured my knee at work, once in June and then again in December. The first time I banged it and twisted on the floor breaking up a fight . I did the same the 2nd time. I went to the urgent care and she said I had some swelling and such and to consult an orthropedic doctor. My kneee felt fine a couple days later so I did not do anythin. My second I went out for three days of work bu pain went away. Finally after a few months of on and off pain in my knee I went to the Orthro. I was getting sharp pain , stiffness, lots of poppin in my knee. I saw him 1st time which he wanted me to get an MRI done. I did and he said there was no tears. I then did p.t. which only caused pain afterwards. He diagnosed me with internal knee derangemnt / synovitis. My knee hurst when I am drinving , walking for extented period of time as well as sitting. I can do things but I know afterwards I am going to feel the pain. I have some fluid in knee with swelling the told me . Finally, he gave me an injection because the apin was too frequent and would not go away as I told him. I believe it was cortizone. That crap hurt for 2 days but then my pain went away. I was so happy , I thought this was the end but people told me it was oinly a temp fix sometimes it works totally . Wel to my dismay, this shot ran out and now my knee is hurting again and it feels worse. He aslo gave me a phamplet on synoy therapy. I guess when I go back to him on the 30 he wants to inject me with .. i think 4 shots . one every week. What is all of this? Is ths leading to surgery? I would rather take those pain shots and be done with everything. Oh, MRI was negitive for tears he told me. Pleas help!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh I am only 32 years of age is this too young for this type of treatment. I was just want to lose this pain
