Leg Pain

What is this mean. I have yet to speak to the doctor
MEDIAL COMPARTMENT: Allowing for motion artifact, the medial meniscus appears intact. Articular cartilage and marrow signal are normal. The MCL is intact.

LATERAL COMPARTMENT: Allowing for motion artifact, there is fraying to the lateral meniscal posterior horn free edge, and the posterior root is diminutive. Superficial chondral fibrillation is present at the posterior meniscal surface of the tibial plateau without subchondral remodeling. Intact lateral collateral ligament complex and structures of the posterolateral corner.

INTERCONDYLAR NOTCH: The anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments are intact.

PATELLOFEMORAL COMPARTMENT: Normal alignment. Articular cartilage appears preserved, and subchondral marrow signal is normal. Intact quadriceps and patellar tendons. Intact retinacula.

MISCELLANEOUS: No effusion or popliteal cyst.

Mild free edge fraying at the posterior horn lateral meniscus with subjacent shallow chondral fibrillation in the posterior LTP.

Well, you've landed on the multiple sclerosis board, but having recently dislocated my knee, I've also had a knee mri and a visit with an orthopedic surgeon and physiotherapists.  I would think this is a relatively normal knee (depending on your age).  I imagine they were evaluating you for a torn ACL/PCL/meniscus?  I expect there is another board with members who will be more helpful :).

Wait, if you HAVE ms, and they were looking for alternate reasons for your leg pain, I don't see any major cause with this mri.  Of course, I'm not a doctor.  I dislocated my knee (and tore the ACL) because of foot drop and quad weakness due to ms.

I did have neuropathic pain in my leg for some months, however it was unrelated to  my knee.

If you have ms and an assymetric gait because of it, this can definitely cause knee pain, but unsure about leg pain.

The meniscus is under the knee cap and it can get torn. It says yours is fine. I tore mine when I tore my ligaments years ago.
