Our expert says:
I hate to give up, but it's impossible for me to prescribe anything when a knee specialist, on examining you, has to refer for an MRI. They would have done that because they don't know, and so anything I guess is a complete shot in the dark.
My advice is that you talk again to the doctor and explain the situation and see what they suggest. If they feel that the MRI is the only option, then that's the only option. They may be able to start some kind of treatment without it, but it might be guesswork. Again, that's something you ahve to discuss with them, not me, because i really know little of the situation here. I think you therefore need to speak to them and find their suggested next steps, assuming that the MRI is not an option (which you must tell them).
