I don't know if this is the right place to post this, because I don't know if any of you have experienced this, but I'm gonna give it a shot anyways.

So back in August, I fell on my knee and bruised the bone, or so the dr at the First Care said. It was really painful for a while, and never really got totally better. But back in January, I fell on the ice and hurt it again. My x-rays and MRI are all normal. I'm currently in physical therapy, and my dr just gave me a cortisone shot last week. But they don't know what's wrong with it, as no tests are showing anything.

If I'm walking around for a while, it starts to throb, and will randomly sometimes at other points too. The back of the knee and the top of the calf are SO tight and sore.

Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

I've also looked into knee braces to help support it while I'm walking, ones that will support but not immobilize. But I don't know what kind or anything else. Any suggestions with that either?

Thanks in advance :)

Sarah,
You've definately come to the right place. My knee has arthritis, fibro, baker's cyst, sciatic and all sorts of other goodies. Popping
and crunching to boot. They did knee surgery to repair a torn maniscus and torn cartalidge on my left knee and left my kneecap
about 1" out of place. They wanted to do surgery on my right one and replace them eventually. After about 6 months and no
sign of relief with the dx painkillers I finally went herbal. The gentleman at the shop got me on Super Cissus RX to repair the
tendons and muscles. Bio-Sil to replace the cartalidge with Malic Acid to detox.

Last week my right knee just went all to heck, overnight I could barely walk and driving was a nightmare. I upped the Super
Cissus from 4 back to 9 a day and take 2 of the Bio-Sil. Because the sciatic got so bad it was like someone had a knife tearing
down the side of legs from hip to foot I'm trying a mix of Magnesium, calcium, Vit D and Zinc in a tablet. I take 3-4 a day along
with the True Calm, also 4-6 a day till it's under control. These work on the muscle spasms and work on fixing the nerves.
I've also been taking Bromelain, which is pineapple enzymes as the baker's cyst was severely inflammed and it helps to
shrink it.

Good luck and I hope this helps you...all I know is I was taking 3 or 4 painkillers and 3 muscle relaxers and it wasn't touching
the pain. Thank God for the herbal route.

Oh how I wish I could do something like that. Unfortunately, there is no way I can afford the herbal route, since insurance won't cover it, and I don't have enough money right now for sure. I will write it down though in case I ever get to the point where I can. Thank you so much for the information!

I ended up in the ER with my knee several months ago, I was in agony. Needless to say the whole staff at the hospital did not understand what FMS. They did an rxay etc to find out there was nothing wrong everything was clear no matter how they looked at it. After the first few things I told them it was fibro related they did not listen. Then they decided I needed a pressure thing on my whole leg well that put the whole leg. That was wrong my point iss that the pain went away yes it hurt like well I will not write that. But still now some time later it hurts at times but with al the other pains. On the other knee I had a major fall some years ago and my Doctor was surprised that I had broken no bones this knee how ever gets the most pain from the fibro.
Something else about 6 weeks ago I had a fall that led to a great bruise on the back of my calf, my point to this is now all this time late i have some very hard sore spots this is from blood that has not yet been absobed back into my body. It will take time but the pain will go, this was something I had never even thought of that. I hope you find this a bit of use.
