I am usually an active person but 5 weeks ago I started with knee pain. I iced it and rested it but no improvement so after a week I saw a GP. She suggested physiotherapy. I've had 4 sessions. After each session of work on the muscles around the knee, I have felt better but then the knee pain then comes back with a vengeance. The first time it took a week, the last time just 2 hours. My GP has now prescribed anti-inflammatories which are doing nothing but the pain gets worse. I can now only walk a few yards because the pain is so bad. The pain is on the outside of my knee but spreads to the whole knee and around the knee when I move. I am 64, fit but overweight. Where do I go from here as I am now unable to do anything or go anywhere and this is now making me depressed.
