I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthrtitis in 2014. My knee locked and I fell, tearing my right ACL completely. I went through physcial therapy and the pain just worsend over the years and became chronic. Osteoarthritis developed in the right knee and I tore my meniscus at the beginning of July. A recent MRI shows that my right knee has a complex tear on the medial posterior horn of the medial meniscus; an oblique tear on the undersurface of the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus; the ACL is torn and incompetent with 1 cm of anterior tibial translation; there is thickening of the plica; a grade 2 chondromalacia medial patellar facet; and a grade 2 chondral surface irregularity of the posterior margin of the lateral tibial plateau. I have had cortisone treatments that provide a little relief. I am moving on to a brace and going back to physcial therapy.
