I have intense pain in my right knee and hip that keeps me awake at night with throbbing in hip and knee. I get abdominal pressure when I bend my right knee to my chest and I feel general pressure there. My right upper thigh and knee are swollen (and I oddly have swelling in my left armpit area). NSAIDs do not help. I tried PT, but they referred my back to my medical doctor as they didn't feel it was musculoskeletal. My doctor has ruled out Cancer, and an US of my leg and abdomen were negative. I will be getting a colonoscopy at the end of the month to rule out Chrohn's disease and I have an appointment in December with Rheumatology, but the pain in my knee and hip is worsening and I can not walk very well anymore and it is difficult to make it through my work day, but I have to. I don't feel like I can wait until the end of November to get answers because the pain is intense and I am not sleeping well. Who do I go to for help?
