Patient : For about 2 months I have been having pain in the back of my left knee. It hurts when I bend it and re-extend it, twist to get into the car, try to sit indian style, its even woken me up at night when extending from a curled up position. It doesn't hurt to walk or stand. I am not a runner or even do much "exercise" at all, just day to day normal chores. I'm not over weight and I haven't injured it at all. It came on somewhat gradually and has gotten alot worse. I have an ultrasound scheduled to rule out DVT but if nothing shows up an MRI is next and I just can't afford it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
