Diagnosis and Treatment


Hello, Sue here, just registered. I have arthritis in my left knee has been about 2 years now. After about 3 months it seemed to disappear and reared its ugly head again about 3 months ago. I also have additional pain down the inside of my left calf and in my thigh and buttock. Every step is paintful. My GP only offers telephone consultations and this has proved useless. He offered a steroid injection in my knee. I am concerned as I feel that I need to see a specialist who can diagnose what is going on with my leg. I am not ready to have a steroid injection until I have been properly diagnosed which the GP doesnt seem able to do. Also have Plantar Fasciitis in my left heel for the past 2 months.

Can you advise where I can go for help. GP is a lost cause.
