I started getting really bad pain in my knees a few weeks ago and talked to my rhumatologist about it and she said that steroids can give you AVS. I got an MRI done last week and it showed this was starting in my knees. I have to go see the ortho next week now. Anyone have this happen to them and if so what was your prognosis??? I really dont want to get surgery, yet I can't keep on with this pain. I am not tappering off steroids!!!
