Oral medications for osteoarthritis need to be okayed by your OB or the doctor prescribing them. I prefer to advocate weight loss or weight control, modest exercise such as walking as long as it doesn't worsen the knee pain. ...Read more
I have been told that I will get arthritis in my knee in 10 to 20 years due to a recent fracture. What can I do?

As with most pain conditions, there can be a variety of potential problems that can cause the pain that you are describing. It is difficult to diagnose with the short description given and without a proper physical examination. Pain is often a sign of inflammation. Inflammation often occurs when something is irritated. Irritation occurs from a variety of different things.
If the pain does not improve, you should see someone who is qualified to make an appropriate diagnosis. Arthritis may be a primary diagnosis or a secondary diagnosis. There may be something else, sometimes hereditary, that may be causing your early arthritis-like symptoms. Imaging and labs may be necessary.
As always, I would highly suggest you do your research when seeking medical help. Find a physician who meets, or even better, exceeds the basic qualifications to practice in their specific field or sub-specialty. ...Read more
