Knee pain

Sep 01, 2015 1:37 PM

I have suffered from pain in my knee for 2 years now after a bike accident, I recently had physio to help build my strength all over my body for my hypermobility and fibro, but since Tuesday I've had terrible pain in my knee and it's just getting worse! I don't know what to do, none of my painkillers are helping and I'm really struggling with stairs, any advice?

I too have severe knee pain, I went to an orthopedic, and got an mri and it determined I had a decayed tendon. They sent me for surgery within two days. I still have knee pain but not as bad.

I've been to see ortho about other areas and I was lied to about my results, terrified to go back as it added months of pain to a simple problem, couldn't bare that happening again

If you have hms you may have subluxation of your knee partial dislocation mine do it a lot and really hurt until they go back in properly

Fibro0195, try seeing a new Ortho doctor that's not affiliated with your old one. 🙏🌼

I have neurology soon, terrified to see what they say, I have a lot of nervous pain along with my fibro. Going to try call physio tomorrow if it's still really bad

Hia i know how u feel i too suffer bad pain in knee's i saw a top pysio who did exrays etc she said i need new knee but the dr at time said no too young!! Im 46 i went back to gp we decided to fight back when i rang physio she also said due to me being a chronic pain patient theres nothing that would benifit me i was fuming!!!!! Yes i have fibro too but knee knee was bad so i wrote to my MP & Said to him about how id been treated etc then things moved sae ortho dr who booked me in for keyhole in op he said oh ummmmm much worse than 1st thought ( really!! )so ive been recovering at home,having pysio etc but knee locks when i go to stand up etc &the awful awful pain inner knee i had waa coming back!! Thought a tear on menscus but had several tears,no cartlidge & bone on bone so at my 6week check saw diff dr he said its not good & see me in 3mths if same discuss new knee in mean time no warning left gave out scarred me then this wk right gave way so please please " Dont" give up u know ur body & know when something wrong see diff dr write down whats been happening etc & and how its making u feel and say if nothing done u will take it higher kick some butt we shouldnt have to but feel only way sometimes as we are not listened to properly some dr's understand some dont & not all is fibro, fibro makes it worse & thats what dr's have to understand i hope u get it sorted good luck x
