I've had a problem with my right knee for around 11 years now, I am only 22 years old so the trouble started when I was 11, when I fell and injured it. It is extremely swollen and painful. The doctors have tried draining the fluid several times and had no luck. I have had multiple MRI scans and they can't see any problems. Have been referred between the Orthopedics and Rhuemertologists. The first Rhuemertologist said it was Rheumatoid Arthritis, the second said nope definitely not arthritis. They have now passed me back to Orthopedic again!! It just seems like they're passing me to each other because they don't know what the problem is. I have had one arthroscopy a year ago, and have just been put on the waiting list for another. Doctors have said that the fall when I was younger isn't related . They mentioned something called PVNS which doesn't seem to be very common so there isn't much information anywhere to learn about it - the second Orthopedic i saw has ruled out PVNS. If anyone has any ideas, or is in a similar situation would appreciate any help or information!?
