Suffering flare-up, waiting to see specialist but GP thinks it might be patello-femoral arthritis. It's been over five weeks now, on crutches, house-bound, business going down the tubes, very frustrated. Can't take oral NSAIDs due to ulcer, using gel and cold packs. I'm thinking about asking for a cortisone injection but I get the impression they're very reluctant. Can anyone tell me anything about this? In particular, what should I say that might persuade them to do this? (In UK, on NHS, can't really afford to go private.)
