Like I'm not already sick of seeing the doctor.

My left knee has been bothering me for the last week and a half. I don't recall injuring it, I thought perhaps I'd gone a bit too hard on the bike and strained something. It's been making me limp and has been quite uncomfortable, then last night I stepped on it wrong and it was very painful. I couldn't put any weight on it at all.

So, today I went to the doctor (not my usual one). He's said there's a lot of fluid on both my knees (my right knee seems fine though) and he's leaning towards either psoriatic arthropathy or arthritis. Great...

What this means is my usual doc will need to do more blood tests and I'll probably need to see specialists (rheumatologists etc). As it is, I've been lazy about seeing a podiatrist and dietician as part of my diabetes regimen. Oh well, I'd better organise things sooner rather than later and find out exactly what it is.

I'm not sure I want either, mind you. I think I'd much rather a sprain, thanks all the same.

Sorry I haven't been round for a bit. Good to see the day care thing might be working itself out. To bad about your knee. Study hard for those medical tests (tee hee). Thanks for coming by.
