Me too. The worst was we looked for a year and a half for answer and it was here's what you have but there's nothing we can do to help. About a week ago I slept in the floor because I couldn't get up to my bed. ( I have a bunk bed ). My left knee locked up and it felt like I had a Charlie horse in my calf muscle. Does anyone else have that happen? It has happened twice since then and nothing I do helps.
I am 31 and was finally diagnosed with this. I am not overweight or anything. Having kids did it to me.
My Ortho will not do surgery. I have done PT, special braces, orthotics etc. I am miserable.
Thanks I see doc Monday and will definitely bring it up
I'm a 14 year old girl, activly involved in lacrosse. Last year i was diagnosed with chondromalica patella and had arthroscopic surgery after trying physical therapy (which was no help) to repair the damage. i dont know how bad your condition is right now, but mine got to the point where a piece of bone broke off. talking to your surgeon about the surgery is probably the best thing to do. since my surgery my knee has been great, it took some time to rehab it but the physical therapy was worth it. i hope this helps! i know how you feel, it totally *****. i'm going in for surgery again to repair a torn meniscus next month. your best bet is to take care of your condition now!
