thank you for your cooperation . now depending on your history and physical
examination, your problem could be related to a variety of condition. it could
be a wear & tear in your knee or a more serious infection in your knees .But
till now I’m not sure what is the cause of what you are dealing with .so I need
to run some tests including some blood work up like a Complete Blood Count
(CBC) and some imaging studies like X-ray and CT scan. once the results are
available, we will meet again to discuss the final dx & the prober management
. Meanwhile,I will keep you under observation and my nurse is going to give
you some pain medications etc.

diagnosis, and MRI may be necessary as well. Your safety is my primary
concern, and I am here to help and support you.

Hopefully your range of motion with your arm will go back to normal, but
first we need to out exactly what is causing your problem

example, while sitting at your computer desk or on
plane trips.try to move in place or take a short walk. if you are on oral
contraceptive pills, I strongly recommend that you stop taking them, as
they are known to precipitate clotting.I also suggest that you exercise
regularly and manage your diet."
