Hi, it turns out the pain I've had in my knee for the past two months is a torn cartilage in my knee, the pain is at times excruciating, the doctor has prescribed me tramadol 50 mg four times a day and referred me to a physiotherapist, the tramadol hardly touches the pain and I'm having really bad muscle spasms in the whole of my leg which makes it very difficult to relax, I'm still limping and struggling at work especially with stairs and walking/standing for more than ten minutes, has anybody else had this? Did physio help? How long did it take to heal? This has been going on now for over two months and at times I feel there is no end to this pain, my doctor hasn't sent me for any scans or anything, just pain relief, the physio rany me to say my gp had booked me into the wrong physio, they only deal with back and neck and mine is leg so just waiting for the correct physio appointment
