I went to my doctor today...sigh...she thinks I have arthritis in my knee. She ordered an x-ray, which I got done this afternoon, and then I'll start physical therapy. She gave me some CELEBREX (an anti-inflammatory) and also ordered me off my legs for 3 work days. I'll need to drive out tomorrow and get a knee brace. Honestly, I've been in so much pain lately that I really haven't been able to think straight. If the x-ray isn't conclusive, then I'll undergo a MRI in a couple of weeks, especially if this course of action doesn't have results. I have NEVER had any kind of knee problems, but my back MRI did show a lot of arthritis there. Thank you all for your concern.
