My knee started to swell in October 2013 (two months after a non-weight bearing injury to the knee whilst bent).
I received 6 months of physio before being referred to an Orthopedic consultant who referred me for an Xray and MRI. These both came back suggesting no structural damage.
I was referred on to Rheumatology in the September of 2014 where they did blood tests and aspirated the knee. My bloods came back clear as did the synovial fluid from my knee.
I have since been in the Rheumatology department and had it drained 3 times with one other MRI since then. Every time the swelling has come back.
I recently had an ultrasound and that also showed no structural damage just a lot of fluid!
I am at a loss of what could be the problem, or how to fix it. I have tried long term antiinflammatories, rest, ice, tape, exercise and none of those seemed to make any difference to the swelling.
Does anyone have any suggestions? It has been nearly 3 years now!
