In February, I began with knee pain especially when sitting down. Pain begins at about 30 degrees - past that I am fine. I have pain when I weight bear to lt leg. Consequently, in Feb I started at gym. Now I have pain in the knee, muscle spasms in lt leg and burning back of lt thigh. I went 3 weeks ago to a sports med dr. had a MRI and was diagnosed with osteochondritis dissecans. He said "I would bet my career that that is what is wrong with you." I got referred to an expensive specialist 30 mins away. I went for second opinion locally to an orthopedic surgeon ( which I work with -thus less expensive.) He said "Its just arthritis." ( which is what the orginal radiologist read it as.
I did receive a cortisone shot in the knee by the orthopedic surgeon which did not do anything. I still have alot of pain. I need to get back at the gym but do not think I could do anthing with this much pain.
Not knowing much about the syptoms of this diagnosis, I am looking for insight for anyone who has experience with this.
Some other symtpoms I have are: joint effusion, contusion marrow edema, caritlage defect according to MRI, no swelling or redness to left knee, just pain when standing weight bearing or sitting at 30-45 degree angle only (past that I am fine)pain to outside of lt knee, throbbing to thigh and buring to behind knee to thigh off and on.
Thanks in advance for any help.
