I injured my knee nearly 6 months ago and have had x-rays and mri, both showing nothing the public hospital said that there was nothing wrong with my knee and that the pain was all in my head. Went to an orthopaedic surgeon and he said it was my fat pad in my knee and then gave me an injection which I had a reaction to and then gave me steroid tablets which caused me to faint. Finally gave me celebrax which helped a little, but he told me that he believed that the pain was caused by an inflamed fat pad and petello-femoral syndrome which I have in my other knee. He then told me to go to physio as this is all that can be done. I have been going to physio for months and he believed that the pain was a ligament, then he thought that the knee cap was rubbing not he doesn’t know what is wrong. Physio has tried ultra sound, electric pulses, taping, ice, exercise and rest but nothing seems to work. It may help for a while but the pain always comes back. I am still experiencing terrible pain which is causing loss of sleep and the pain doesn’t feel like PFS. The pain is deep under the knee on the inside. My doctor told me about the Hoffa knee pain and believes this could be the problem. Could this be the problem what will be the best treatment because I feel that I have tried everything and nothing seems to workReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
