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 :)
