I: Do not believe it is related.

Not: A rash in 2012 is not related to an injury back in 2001. Left ankle inflammation in 2012 from a right knee injury in 2001 not......Your right knee pain after long periods of sitting certainly could be. It would be helpful if we knew the prior diagnosis of the knee injury. Did that njury ever resolve or has their been pain since then would also help.
