Hello folks,

I am a 33 years old male, about 2 years ago out of no where I started developing a discomfort in my right knee, as time went by the condition got worse, so I consulted my family doctor and he gave me some exercises to do but it just got worse, after a while I started developing muscle weakness in my left leg as well and all of a sudden I felt a sever burning sensation in my let knee as well...long story short it was hurting so much that I could barely walk, went to doctor he wrote a "systematic blood work" for me and everything came back normal, referred me to physiotherapist and it helped a bit. after a month I went back to his office as I started developing muscle twitches and general sense of weakness in all my muscles, my right wrist was also very tender and painful, he referred me to a neurologist and a orthopedic surgeon, neurologist did a complete physical examination and simply told me that I do not have a neurological disorder, orthopedic surgeon sent me for an MRI and the result were only some fluid built up in my knee joint and should go away!!..

It is very frustrating, my knees are only functional for walking, there is no way I can run...2 years gone by, and my pain is persistent.

Any help or advice is much appreciating it.

  • See a rheumatologist. Sounds like Lyme disease or maybe Rheumatoid Arthritis.
