My knees have been bothering me for years, I just got insurance so I was finally able to see a doctor about it. He sent me to a Orthopedic Surgeon who ordered an MRI. The surgeon says that there is no sign of a tear in my meniscus or PCL as he had thought but that there is 5x the amount of fluid that there should be. He thinks that it is either Lupus or Rheumatiod Arthritis. He wants to put me on a NSAID, but suggests that I wean my 13 month old daughter first. Does anyone here have experience with such things? He also did cortisone shots in both of my knees today and told me that it won't be passed into my breastmilk but will cause me to produce less milk. I do not want to wean, but I also need to be healthy. I'm torn and absolutely sick about this.

Thank you MommaDucks for the AMAZING siggy!
