My knee has been acting up lately.
Well, I say lately, but it’s been acting up on and off since the fall. I don’t know if I did something to it or if the weather has something to do with it. I’m fairly sure that I have some form of arthritis in both of my knees so that doesn’t help either. I’m sure the extra cold winter we just went through affected my knees.
I saw my family doctor last week and after telling her again and again that my knees are aching she’s finally sending me for an xray and setting up MRI’s for both of my knees. My legs aren’t formed properly – the tibias and fibulas are more to the outside of each of my legs so that puts my whole lower leg structure off – it’s called Tibia Extortia. I know in the past xrays have shown that there’s some wear on the bone and the MRI’s will show it to an even greater extent.
My family doctor of course also believes that some physical therapy will help. She thinks that using a muscle stimulator might help tighten up my quads and that might help my knees too. I don’t know … it might.
Hopefully nothing too serious is found with my knees .. but it’s obvious that something is going on as they’ve really been acting up over the last several months.
