I have severe pain in my right knee to the point that I cannot bear my own weight or walk (I'm very slender at 98 pounds). I'm a 52 yr old female, in otherwise excellent shape & health First occurred this February after nonstop working out with squats & lunges with weights, hiking steep hills, spin class, etc. Ortho said tendonitis &suggested PT, rest & cortisone shot. months passed with litte releif. Had MRI which indicated chondromalacia on lateral tibial plateu with bone edema & synovitis & small joint effusion. Second Ortho said its arthritis and injected Synisc One which relieved pain in a week & lasted 4 months until I slowly began working out 3 times a week. I was fine for 3 months, pain began so I stopped working out & ironically, day by day pain getting severe. Went back to Ortho 2 days ago who gave me second Synvisc One & said again arthritis. Any opinions, suggestions would be greatly apprecialted. Thank you.
