I started having pain in my knees last year. I was worried I was developing Osteo like both my parent's have. Had a full range of xray on them. The Orthopedist told me there was no break down. He thought I had to strengthen the muscle around them and ordered PT. The problem is that my deductible went up to $5000 and the insurance won't pay it until I meet this which is impossible. My dad showed me what to do since he has went through PT with his knees. Why spend money on it when they will do the same as with my dad. I have been getting a little bit better. Plus losing extra weight is helping. But I still am worse when we get stormy weather. On those days I can't hardly walk. I actually need to be given a small dose of pain meds like Ultram on the bad days but there is no way in hell the doctor will do this.
