Hello to everyone, I have had 2 opinions from pain specialist that say I don't have crps. I had the kneecap replacement April 2016. My knee gives out and causes me to fall. Not only do I have fierce pain but the swelling is awful. My ortho dr drained it about 10 days ago. It was bloody and they sent it off to check for rheumatoid arthritis and etc. Everything was normal. So my Dr doesn't want to open it up to find out whats going on? I'm having a knee angiogram tomorrow. He said this would be a excellent test to determine if the meniscus is torn or if the cement is gone. However after reading up about the angiogram they will need to drain it if it has fluid in it and then put dye in there.10 days ago after he numbed it up and shoved that needle in there I flew up off that bed. It was not very nice. Whatever he touched with that needle is the pain I feel when I put weight on it. I have pulled my Achilles tendon in the other leg. It was almost gone til yesterday when I went to the store. It is back. My Dr has sent me to get these opinions and is now sending me to another ortho Dr just to have a new eyes on it. If he agrees with the total knee replacement then he will proceed. I been icing it and keeping it elevated. However not much fluid goes down? Also something strange is going on. After I wake up in the morning and get to moving around I'm starting to feel like something inside the knee is I can feel like something is running down my knee? It almost feels like when you run warm water over your hands? I don't know what's going on with all of this but I'm so tired. I'm hoping I get some answers soon. I'm sleep deprived and I hurt so bad. I honestly think that my other leg has had about enough too. Thanks,Tina
