Okay so I took it up with my GI who says after 6 wks if no better, he will refer me to an orthopedic. (sp?)
My right knee has progressively gotten worse, hurts all the time/movement or no movement. Worse with certain movements though. Nothing helps it, not steriods, not Humira...and Ive had a xray and a MRI and both showed nothing....so primary care physician said..oh its the Crohns and when my flare clears up then my knee will.
Well Ive been feeling better for 3 weeks now, (cept for the colds) and the knee still hurts bad. Tylenol doesnt touch it, even pain pills (lortab) only slightly help it. What the !bleep! is it?
How can a knee hurt so bad but show nothing at all? any clues? any ideas?
ps: Ive been trying to do more exercise lately, cuz I quit smoking but the knee makes it sort of impossible to do any aerobic!
Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength
