[QUOTE=janewhite1;4726592]I've noticed the word "sprain" is misused to mean "minor injury to a joint." In fact, a sprain is a ligament tear.

There are a lot of things that could be causing your pain. The simplest explanation is that the person who read your MRI just missed something. There's a lot of tiny little details in MRI films, and sometimes the radiologist just doesn't see it.

Is there any way you can get an appointment with a good orthopedic surgeon, one who specializes in knees? Bring the reports and the original films from all tests you've had done.

Meanwhile, muscle spasms may be part of the reason why your pain is spreading. See if you can stretch your leg and hip without making things worse.

Do you have any income? How are you supporting yourself? Have you applied for disability or social services?[/QUOTE]
