To make a long story short, I basically have 1/2 my medial meniscus. A couple years ago I did something to the same knee so that my fibula would periodically dislocate. Now I did something worse and have a lot of pain in the outside of my knee & have a lot of pain if I bend it or put any pressure on the outside of it. I have another partial ligament tear in another joint, and this pain feels exactly the same.
I can’t see a doctor since none seem to understand what “mask triggers asthma & I’m allergic to asthma meds” means. I’ve tried. My current hinged knee brace isn’t supportive enough, but I have a new one coming. I tried some gentle isometric PT like what I did for my meniscus tear but it caused bruising & made things worse. In an ideal world, I’d see a doctor but that’s completely impossible. So I need to figure out how to manage this myself.
Aside from a good brace, does anyone have any suggestions for things I can do myself that might help?
