My case of OSD and what the doctors say is quite odd.
I got it when I was 11 years old, knocking on peoples doors and running away from very pissed off people. One day, I was running and stopped myself from falling by sticking my right leg out. As a result, I sprained my knee, and after that I was diagnosed with OSD by some kind of bone specialist (ortheropaedian or something). I was told that I could continue running, since I used to and still do a lot of long distance running, but if there is any pain, I should stop. I was also told that the same thing could happen to my left leg.
I had to live with the pain at first, intense pain whilst playing football, kneeling on hard surfaces and so on, but about a year ago (now I'm 16), all this pain somehow went away. I know this is bad, but I even smash my knee against walls in my house and it feels quite fine, but I still have the humoungous lump and random pains.
3 years after I was diagnosed, I went back to my GP to ask for another X-ray. He went along with the plan, and when I returned HE SAID IT WAS DIAGNOSED AS A SLIGHT FRAGMENTATION!!! Then I went back 6 months later and he did not seem to have a clue so went along with the original OSD diagnosis.
Also, I seem to have this problem where my lower leg is a bit more outwards than my upper leg, so it seems as though my legs are bent. I was never like this until I was about 10ish. Can someone tell me what's wrong with my leg???
And one more thing. I speak on behalf of all us kids who enjoyed annoying the hell out of people by knocking on their doors and running off, sorry. I think I've been punished by god for this.
Ab, it's called "Knock down Ginger", gingers revenge then!
Good news peeps, 46.5 years old, knees intact, the right is beginning to niggle and discomfort creeping in. Lumps still there. Kneeling is big pain and brings tears to my eyes.
Running has helped enormously, before I started 3-4 years ago, I was just about beginning to limp a bit. The muscles have now strengthened to compensate. Providing I keep going, no pain. 3 weeks off (when I had salmonella) and I walk like Dr House. takes a month to get back to normal.
So don't worry too much!
I am from Bulgaria, and i want to share my osgood schlatters disease problem with you friends.
Now i am 33 years old, and i still have this problem since i was 14.
I was a football player and after my knee injury i just stopped.
I readed that after a couples of months or even a year my condition should be get better, but unfortunately i have no any progress with that.
I usin ice on my bones all the time, in the past i was taken a pills- OSSOPAN.
After my graduation i was in the ARMY, and there the paine was too much for me, because of the runnings and so on. But i survived with a lot of paine allmost 2 years.
And now i have no improvment with my knees - for a 10 years i do not practice any kind of sports.
If someone nows any solvation on my problem please let me know ( even a surgery).
