Unable to bend knee

by Katie Marshall

I have been unable to bend my knee for 3 months and i have a limp.

I have seen an orthapedic knee consultant who cannot find anything wroung and now i am seeing a neurologist.
I have had an mri and am due to have eeg nerve test soon.

My calf is swollen and so is my knee and it is a reddish colour.
I have tried bending it but i cannot move it.
The neurologist thinks it may be either rheumatoid arthritis or nerve entrapement.

Your opinion on this would be much appreciated.
