For well over a year my wife has been suffering from leg pain. mostly behind the knee and thigh (Quads). Knee area swells up every day. Getting worse. Used to be fine in the morning and get worse at the end of the day. Now it hurts all the time.

Some Dr.s are thinking Lupus or Arthritis. Those symptoms don't seem exactly right though.

She is 45 and taking hormones. (Along with other drugs for other things) Anti inflamitories take the edge off but don't seem to do real well.

Any ideas I can research?
