I know I am always asking about my legs but I seem to be getting no where. I have been suffering with fluid on my knees all summer. I have had them drained twice and the third time the nurse couldn't get any out although said if she were the Dr he would go in where the fluid was but she wasn't going to do that. A junior Dr drained them and said that it was not caused by my RA. Other nurses have said it is and a health care at home nurse said it wasn't. My own gp didn't think there was fluid there but a few days later I had two lots drawn off one knee and one off the other. My problem now is that my top part of my legs are so painful when I walk and you can see the fluid hang over the knees. When the junior Dr drained my knees he tried to massage it out of my legs towards my knees. I am wondering if the knees are the problem or the legs. How can fluid on the knees affect all the top part of the leg. I asked my gp for water tablets and she said that it wasn't the right type of fluid for those. I find that no one seems to want to try anything or give a reason for why I am having this problem. Has anyone had a similar problem?
