Hi there i am Andy and new to this site. I have just seen the program on Chanel 5 and noce to know I am not alone. A bit about me i am 36 and had problems with my knees from the age of 3 or 4 and the doctors always put it down to growing Pains. A few years back I went to see a knee specialist in Liverpool and he sent me to a pain clinic for botox in my knees which made it worse. I cant sleep at night and always moving my legs as it feels like there is something behind my knee cap chipping away at it and the pain gets so bad I have even thought about asking for amputation which I know sounds extream but that is the pain I am in. I have been on tramadol's for about 5 years and taking between 4 and 5 at night just to ease the pain. In September last year i went under the knife for a double bilateral authoscapy which has just made the pain worse. Is there anyone else out there that can help please as just out of ideas and getting me down now.
