Hello all- 2nd time posting here . My original post about 10 months ago concerned pain primarily in my left knee (with slight trunk pain also). I have had 2 disc surgeries- L4-5 - the most recent 30 months ago and also 2 knee surgeries on that knee area (ACL and microfracture 6-8 years back)..Am active (cycle,spinning class etc) and have generally been pain free post surgeries. Age 54
Last October/November I started having severe knee area leg pain but no other issues. Went to my doctors and they were concerned given the history and did an MRI which was negative. Prescribed dose pack and PT which seemed to work- pain subsided. Well, it has returned-exact same pain as last time -does not respond much to OTC pain meds and is worse the more that I am up weight bearing. I actually went cycling a few days ago and did fine but hurt badly after.I don't appear to have any objective defecits- can walk on my toes and heels etc and no bladder function problems etc.
Has anyone had or heard of this type situation ? Perhaps this is just something that will happen from time to time and go away after a few weeks. Hope so. I hate to go see the docs again with this . Thanks in advance for any ideas. James
