The tens was wonderful initially but my skin became quite sensitive to the use of it for long periods so I resorted to wearing a knee brace as the pain was no better on weight bearing etc. I find the knee brace quite painful tbh but I can at least stand on my leg, even if getting into a standing position is really difficult with the brace on.
I had x rays taken on 28th December as the Rheumatologist insisted the pain was caused by Arthritis, it's taken a month to get the results of the x rays and apparently there is no sign of Arthritis at all and I have a perfect pair of knees, Great news and I'm chuffed about that, so what's causing the pain? I'm still awaiting an appointment for ultra sound, I've now been in pain for about 8 weeks in all. So not only was my first appointment with the Rheumatologist hi jacked by his obsession with my knee, my Aps was never up for discussion and that was the whole point of the referral, I can't say I have any confidence in his diagnostic ability either, I think he saw my age 61 and knee pain and jumped to the wrong conclusion. My Gp still thinks I may have a medial collateral ligament tear but I'm beginning to think it could be Saphenous Nerve Entrapment does anyone have any knowledge or experience of this, I'd never heard of it tbh but it seems to fit. Maybe I'll know more after the ultra sound whenever that may be. I just hope I'm not doing more damage in the mean time.
