Hi, I'm new here.

I have had osteoarthritis in my right knee for 6-7 years. The past few months I have experienced pain ranging from slight to severe in the back of my left knee. It is usually worse when I've been walking or standing.

I attributed it to fibromyalgia at first, because I have a severe case of fm. But I finally saw a doc specifically for my knee pain. My regular doc's P.A. thought it was a baker's cyst. I went to an orthopedist who disagreed and sent me for an MRI. It showed fluid buildup but no cyst or tears.

Lately I've felt pain coming around the inside to the front of my knee, and a pulling sensation across the knee.

My regular doc now says possibly a fractured knee cap (obviously it wouldn't be a very bad fracture, cause I can walk just fine).

I see the orthopedist again on Nov. 1st.

Anybody have any similar problems, and if so what was your outcome?
