part of arthritis is joint narrowing and bone degeneration. it could be very slight thats why an xray didnt pick it up, but mri did. joint narrowin is mostly caused by arthritis. if u didnt have any treatment yet, try cortizone injection into the knee (only caution if ur diabetic, might spike ur sugar for a few days)
