I've been experiencing knee pain for several years. I'm 57 years old. Several years ago I had an MRI of my left knee. The doctor said I do have osteoarthiritis (oh gawd, I know I'm spelling this wrong, lol). At that time the doctor said knew replacement was in my future, but a ways off.
This year my knee pain has gotten quite a bit worse. Every time I get up especially my knees hurt like crazy! I am going to make an appointment with a Rheumatologist because I believe I have Fibromyalgia. Would a Rheumatologist also be the specialist who would make a determination regarding knee replacement? Or is there a different specialist for that?
