Oh dear, sorry for your pain. Go and get a 2nd, 3rd opinion.

When I was 10 I had severe knee pain. I couldn't walk or bend my knee. It took about a year before I was diagnosed with Osgood-Shlatter disease.

I obviously can't diagnose you, I sell beer for a living but google this disease and see if it sound familiar.

take care


PS. I just realized I might of scared you. If you have this disease all you have to do is rest your knee and stop running, or being to athletic. It will heal on it's own.


If you have had this pain since childhood, then it might be worth asking to see a rheumatologist in case it was some kind of juvenile arthritis, that is now an inflammatory arthritis. Also to get your xrays and imaging reviewed by a rheumatologist and musculoskeletal radiologist - sometimes things are hard to see on imaging and needs a more specialised look at it.
