So after months of agony with my knees, I was finally able to get an MRI authorized when I couldn't walk and all muscles in my legs were killing me. The results showed meniscus tear in my right knee and cysts and bone bruising in both knees. I've learned through my own research, that my calves were in pain when cysts ruptured. I don't know what would cause bone bruising and cysts but definitely need it figured out because my hips have actually been hurting a lot longer than my knees have.... It is the same kind of pain and while I know I will never get an MRI authorized, I would bet if one were done it would show bone bruising and/or cysts. Does anyone know about this or had MRI results similar? I don't understand why I have to be in pain all the time! I take 900 mg neurontin, wear 10 mcg butrans patch for chronic pain, and 10 mg oxycodone for breakthrough pain. Any insight appreciated! Thanks.
