I'm 19 and in October 2016 my right knee randomly started hurting above and below the kneecap and behind my knee. I went to my GP when the pain didn't go away about a week later and was sent for X-rays and blood tests to check for arthritis. This came back clear and I was then sent for physiotherapy for ten weeks. This didn't help and in fact made the pain worse.
Following this I went for an MRI which came back clear, in told. My GP last week sent me for a specialist referral to see an orthopaedic surgeon however I received a letter saying my referral was declined because the condition isn't serious enough. After going back to see my GP today they have said there is nothing more they can do.
I now don't know how I can get a diagnosis for my pain it hasn't got any better in five months and I fear no one will be able to help me solve it.
Please help with any guidance you may have to try and get a diagnosis or treatment.
Many thanks in advance.
