What kind of doctor to see for possible Chondromalacia?
Patient : I have been experiencing dull, achy knee pain that worsens when I am on my feet, and hurts most at night when I rest. Because I am only 18, when I asked doctors they disregarded it without examination and said that it was due to growing pains. It has continued for aprox. six years, so I decided to do my own research. I am thinking that I have Chondromalacia. Everything about it that I have found fits my profile. I dont have any severe pain unless I am on my feet for a very long time. Also My ankles and knees pop almost every time I take a step. If it is necessary for me to see a doctor, what kind of doctor should I see?
