I started a thread about a month ago about an MCL strain and knee braces. I thank those who responded. Just an update…after some knee drains and several visits to the orthopedic, he determined that my swollen knee had no mechanical problems…acl, mcl, cartilage, etc.. A visit to a rheumatologist has produced a definite diagnosis: arthritis resulting from late stage Lyme Disease. So for me it is some knee rest, antibiotics, and back to the slopes in a couple of weeks. By the way, I think an ACE knee sleeve has been helpful just to keep the swelling down…a little.
So beware of those little ticks!
