    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Knee Pain
    tweetyb54 posted:
    X-ray shows nothing for any knee problems, but still have constant pain. I have recently gained weight and was wondering if that could be the problem. Then again, wouldn't both of my knees hurt not just one?
    _swank_ responded:
    X-rays are pretty much useless for seeing most of the things that go wrong in your knee. All they see is bone, not soft tissue. For that you need an MRI. I don't know who told you your knees were fine but you should go see an orthopedic surgeon, get an MRI and get a proper diagnosis.
    tweetyb54 replied to _swank_'s response:
    thank you. ;D
