For years I've had a "bad knee". It hurts. Almost all the time.
I do have times when it doesn't hurt and times when it hurts more than other times, but its been something I've lived with for many years to one degree or another.
I've been to doctors but none of them have ever done any tests to see why it hurts. I eventually stopped going. But its getting worse. Now, the pain is nearly unbearable in the morning and at night. Somethings gotta give.
So, I'm going to call the doctor for an appointment and insist that we try to get to the bottom of this. And if nothing can be found and fixed, then I want some good pain meds. I'm tired of living with pain.
