Right Knee Reveal minimal joint effusion
After doing little work my knee gets stiff and starts paining really bad . It's happening to me from around one and half year. MRI ( 8 months old) shows minimal knee effusion . I'm doing strengthening exercises and taking care of knee but still if i do some work my knee hurts . There is no swelling whatsoever and i never had swelling. My question is: 1- if it is MINIMAL knee effusion then why it is causing so much pain? 2- Is it permanent ? 3- Is there any permanent treatment for this ? 4- I'm so frustrated that I'm even ready to go for an operation ! Will operation cure it completely ? Please tell me what to do now, All the doctors suggesting rest and exercises and I'm doing it for one year now . I Want to know what next!

Hi... Your knee pain may not be attributed only to the effusion... Can you please share MRI report with us so that I will be in a much better position to guide you to recovery... There could be something else responsible for your issue... Knee effusion is a reaction to some irritation or damage inside the joint...if you work on source then it will heal completely.. Even a simple imbalance of muscle around the joint may increase frictional forces inside a joint by increasing the compressive forces... I would also like to know.. complete details of your pain history'...like.. How...when...how long the pain is there... What increased and relieved the pain...nature of pain...how irritable the pain is.... Don't worry.. everything can be solved... Revert back with details asked for to help you better
