I’m going to go see my doctor at the end of the month for the third time for my knee pain. It started after I squatted heavily for three months. The doctor thought it was a dysfunctional ACL, but a subsequent MRI showed that my ACL is perfect. No meniscus damage showed up either. He prescribed me some anti-inflammatory drug, and he is taking a wait and see attitude. He doesn’t appear to know the cause of my pain.
After doing my own research, and observing the mysterious manner by which the pain comes and goes, regardless of my activities, I have come to the conclusion that it is the irritation of the synovial plica. I can't find any other disorder that would fit the puzzle.
My question is, has anyone else had irritation of the plica? If so, what was the treatment/resolution?
