"Constant pain"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as the patient),

For 6 and a half years I have had constant Pain in my knee. Despite referrals to physios, scans and medication I still have pain on a scale of 8.

Despite efforts by my GP and referrals to Golden Jubilee, Hairmyres and Wishaw General I still have no solution to my problem. Can anyone help as this is seriously affecting me and my family.
