Knee pain, taken compound ointment, cortizone injection, naproxyn 500mg, MRI showed chondromalacia

Hi. I have had terrible knee pain since December of last year. Had a compound ointment given to me which did nothing for the pain. Had an cortizone injection which helped for 2 months. Pain came back. Was given Naproxyn 500mg 2x a day; did nothing for the pain. Had another cortizone injection which did nothing for the pain. Had an MRI done and it showed some chondromalacia. Have had pain up until 2 weeks ago when the weather became warmer. Don t have much pain right now at all. Was wondering does the weather have any affect on chodromalacia?

yes the weather definitely affects symptoms in patients who have joint problems. we think it is related to atmospheric pressure which drops in cold damp conditions and increases in the warm dry ones. if yor pain has improved then I would not seek any further treatment unless it worsens again.
