Approximately a year and a half ago, I sustained a knee injury whereby I fell directly upon my bent knee and bruised it quite badly. It hurt really badly at the time, but I thought that I could tough it out, so I didn't see anybody. Fast forward 6 months, and it still hurt pretty badly, so I consulted my doctor, and he took an MRI. The MRI revealed that my bursa had been fragmented. After having diagnosed me, he sent me on my merry way, telling me to take painkillers if it bothered me furthermore. As I live a relatively active lifestyle, it troubled me that whenever I would run, I would experience a considerable amount of pain on the top of my kneecap that would sometimes also hurt the lateral parts of the knee. I recently began seeing another doctor, and he confirmed the first doctor's suspicions and decided to give me a cortisone injection. The pain was alleviated at first, but it is still prevalent in the top of my kneecap and sometimes on the sides.
I'm really tired of living with this pain. Does anybody know what the actual origin of it could be and ways to get rid of it? Thanks in advance.
