I am a 20 year old female who has never had a knee injury or problem. Two weeks ago, I fell from about 4 feet and planted on my feet. I had immediate pain in my knee. I t was suspected I tore my meniscus and LCL. The pain was severe enough for perscribed narcotics. I was referred to an ortho who then sent me for an MRI.
I went online to look at my results from the MRI and all I can say is WTF?! The radiologist reported no tears or ligaments, cartilage, or meniscus. Instead, they reported patellofemoral maltracking due to swelling of my Hoffa Fat Pad. I don't believe this at all. I have pain over the side of my knee going into the back. Every time I take a step, I have a burning sensation. It's uncomfortable for me to fully bend or straighten the leg. I am going to have my ortho take a very close look at this MRI.
If the radiologist happened to be right, has anyone suffered from patellofemoral maltracking? If so how did you treat it? Did it work? I am twenty years old. I don't want a short term treatment! Any opinions?!
If you'd like to see a photo of my MRI I am happy to show you as well.
