I went to see an orthopedic surgeon and he has advised me take X-Ray and few exercise only. In X-ray,there is no sign of any thing wrong.Doctors says it is normal.But now this is growing.

    What can be the reason of this pain and also how can I find relief from this pain.please advise me what I do in this situation.Thanks.

    Have they did an MRI? You may need your knee scoped, it's where they go in and clean out the debris from wear and tear.

    Please do research on this first. I read some time ago that there was no difference in outcomes when studies were done between actually cleaning out debris and making sham incisions on the knee and telling the patient the knee had been cleaned out. I did not save the article because I did not have any personal interest in knees.

    Take care, Annette

    What caused the pain during your childhood? I reckon that the more information you know about your knee pain, the better it will be in terms of deciding what best to do about it.

    Perhaps you'd like to give alternative methods a try, such as acupuncture and the likes? Also, I've been hearing a lot lately that yoga helps in a lot of pain in most people. I've tried it myself and have found it to be quite effective with knee and calf pain of my own but practice caution when going for it as your case might be more sensitive.

    Hope that helps.
