:( Two months ago I had my annual blood work and phyiscal with my primary care phyiscan. I complained of knee and back pain. He suggested I excercise and join Weight Watchers. He didn't x-ray my knee. Two weeks later the pain got worse, so I called him. He wanted me to come because of my fasting blood glucose level. Thinking he would give me something for the pain, I went. Needless to say he didn't prescribe me anything for pain.
Two months later the pain is worse. My knee and ankle swells. I have pain in my right buttock going down to my right leg. My right knee and ankle is swollen. I sometimes drag my right leg without knowledge of doing it until someone mentions it. I work as a NA II in the local hospital, and the pain is so bad I dread going to work. My family and friends suggest I find another doctor. I just want to know why I'am in so much pain. Any advice?
