I'm a 46 year old male, and in late December of 2018, I had a trip and fall accident in my garage, my points of impact were right knee, right hip, right elbow, right side of head. I have been off work since then and now am having complications in the right knee, I am continuing to have weakness and sharp pains in my inner and outer thigh, and the knee is very unstable, inflamation in my knee was extremely severe, and my range of motion is limited. I have had a cortisone shot in the hip and the knee, which helped a little, but not much progress. I have had MRI's performed to my hip no nerve damage, including the lower back, and will be having one performed on my right knee today. My right leg is good for a few minutes once I wake up, but after I start moving around on it, the pain just starts to work its way back, I am still having difficulty with full ranges of motion, and too much, and I have to shut down for the day. I have already been made aware that there was severe injury to the muscles and tendons in the inner and outer thigh, and have been somewhat seditary to aid in healing. It just seems that this injury is taking forever to heal, and though I am making progress it seems that it is very delayed and slow. I have come a long way from the fall in December, but still seems like I have a long way to go. I guess my question is what could possibly be going on? My doctor is running out of options, and it just seems that this is taking forever for me to get back into the swing of things. It would be better if they found nerve damage, or tears, or something so at least we can find a root of the continued symptoms, but nothing, just pain and weakness. I was in physical therapy, but that has been discontinued until we can get more answers.
