With respect to the knee, I will recommend you to first take an MRI.

Because your knee is giving pain from 2 years and also there are gait changes, which according to you is funny walking then I suspect some soft tissue damage and maybe early degenerative changes.

This isn't a good thing to hear as well. Because any injury to the knee if ignored will land into major soft tissue damages and early osteoarthritis of the knee.

To avoid the early ageing of the knee joint it is advised to take an MRI and treat accordingly so we can avoid major damages at an early age.

For now, I will recommend you to try meeting up a physiotherapist so you can get the muscles of the lower limb strengthened which may avoid further injury to the internal structures of the knee.

In my clinical practice of over 12 years, the early detection of the knee injury with clinical examination and with the help of MRI most cases have avoided early osteoarthritis of the knee.

With exercise which are specially designed for knee rehabilitation are implemented and results are as expected. I will request you to take an MRI and take the decision wisely.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Hello Doctor, I have been suffering from knee pain (both legs) since last 2-3 months. Got knee X-ray , CBP,ESR and C reactive protein tests done. All are normal. My orthopedic doctor ruled out arthritis from the x-ray report. Taking pain killers and muscle relaxants did not help either. Right now I am prescribed dolo 650 thrice daily for 10 days , JointAce 1 tablet for 1 month and Vitamin D tablets. Still no relief. Please advice

Good evening sir: it s been over ten years with double arthrocsopies, R and L knees and 3 herniated discs. Pain at 63 years of age can be debilitating as to any enjoyment needless to say. Over this tine I ve had oxy and the rest and the just take the edge off the pain making it bearable to go out. That s it short and sweet and also two rotator cuff tears one on either side. There you have it. Subsolv at 5.7/1.4 I think 3xs a day helps keep my attention since I ve had much experience except ketamine which my son, who studied pharmacology at Rutgers and says you do not have to inject it but must be compounded might be an alternative. What sat ye sir?
