hi, i hope someone can help me out with this issue, i'm really depressed and worried. I'm having debilitating pain in my right knee, its constant and stopping me living any form of quality of life. It started around 2 years ago and i eventually saw my GP who told me it was probably because i'm overwieght and it could be arthritis - to be expected at 64!
As usual i carried on, eventually having physio, and then an injection in my knee. All the while needing to take pain relief. Of course the pain killers became ineffective and there have been times i've not been able to walk. I live alone and i guess many of you will know pain especially in the night is not a good thing. I have had depression on and off for years, but it has really got worse.
After a talk with my Gp i was referred for an MRI - I see him this week to talk about the results. Then yesterday i had a letter from the hospital asking me to go back for an x ray. This has really worried me - why would they need to do an x ray ? What could the MRI have shown up ? Questions questioons???? Could anyone here possibly give me any idea of why etc especially if it's happened to them PLEASE
i hope to hear from people soon. kind regards lynn
