  • My story...
    I'm 21 years old and I was diagnosed almost a year ago with PFS. I'm constantly walking and lifting at my job so some days are good and some not. It aches like hell during my period and when I sit still for long periods of time, it feels like my knee cap is just floating around so I have a bit of a limp. I love driving stick so to prevent knee popping whenever I push in the clutch, I keep the seat back far so I don't bend my knee so much. I've found that arthritis creams that heat up help soothe the pain. Any advice, please email.
