It : It sounds like you may be dealing with moderate to severe arthritis as well as a possible injury to ligament or tendon. The x-rays and MRI should be diagnostic. Ra is a possibility however multiple joints are usually involved. If it is found that arthritis is present and severe, then you may need a knee replacement. It sounds like your doctor is doing a fine work up.
Best of luck.
