My knee has been hurting for about 5 weeks now. About a couple of days after it started hurting, it started to swell. It is still swelling/hurting. Now I am in therapy, because the orthopedist said that he thought it would help, along with some anti-inflammatory drugs. The anti-inflammatory drugs messed up my stomach, and they say I'm not making as much progress in my therapy as they had hoped I would. My knee shakes and quivers when I put weight on it, and also feels like something is stiff inside of it. They said it was weak muscles, but it hasn't gotten better. My kneecap also jes flops around inside of the place it's supposed to be. It's also getting weaker. What could be the problem? The therapist said if it's not better by the time I'm supposed to go to therapy, that they are probably gonna want to do some more tests on me. Please tell me what you think is wrong! I need help, and I'm in pain. Thanks.
