Hi, diagnosed with Grade 4 bone on bone kneecap arthritis with tibia involvement and nerve damage. Talk about being blindsided, one day I am fine and the next pain, unable to stand or walk without falling. Go for x-ray told it nothing serious. Seek out another doctor who then orders an MRI and is referred to a kneecap doctor, never knew one existed. Told not much can be done at this time except for "WD-40" injection because it the kneecap, the tibia and the nerves it will complicate matter.
The pain, everything I do involves pain; it hard to adjust. Anti-inflammatory gel and ice are the best they can give me, some days it helps and some days nothing. I have a knee brace that helps somewhat.
I am in my mid 40's, a caregiver and I work full-time.
Just trying to get through the day without..
