I am 21 years old and around about 4 years ago I began to have swelling of my knee. I have had one x-ray and two MRIs in this time and both have come back negative.
I have been to my local hospital and been transferred elsewhere. I have been diagnosed with arthitis and also been told no one really knows what it is. I have a lot of fluid round my knee and pain when I walk or squat or basically do anything involving my knee, I cannot cross my legs for an amount of time before it becomes sore and then I have to phsyically push my knee.
I have been googling about similar symptoms and all have said about negative MRIs then when a surgeon has been in with a scope then have found something.
I have asked my doctor and she has said there is no way a surgeon will scope my knee because there is too much fluid.
She has now said I have to be put on methotrexate but I am afraid of the side effects and is this really all I could be put on?
Any advise would be helpful.
