I'm a 25 year old female. 6 months ago my left knee randomly swelled up. I tried the normal rest, elevation, ice, ibuprofen and it wasn't getting better it was just getting bigger. I saw an urgent care doctor (didn't have insurance at the time) and was given a steroid shot. The swelling went down significantly, about half the size but never went away. 3 months later when I got insurance and my knee started getting bigger again I went to my primary. I had labs done. ESR and CRP and Rheumatoid Factor. All came back normal. I had a sonogram done on my knee. Didn't reveal anything. Had an xray done. Didn't reveal anything. She gave me another steroid shot. Didn't work. She also tried to drain it twice but no fluid is in it. Another month later I noticed the size of my knee started changing daily. I finally got small relief to where it was hardly swollen and then in a day or two it would swell up to a grapefruit. I saw a rheumatologist last month and is very confused. Got more labs done. All seem normal. My biliruben is off just slightly. She gave me a steroid shot directly into my knee. Didn't work. Also tried to drain it but again there's no actual fluid in it. I have no idea why my knee is swollen.
