My knee had been in pain and swollen for nearly 2 years.When i go to the doctor he said my knee bone had got infection.He only told me to massage it evryday and i did not see any healing?Anybody heard this sick before and knows what to do with it?

Only thing i can tell you is i doubt its infection or it would of spread.

Could be Damp heat or just damp invasion in the body. But from a Chinese Medicine point of view it would indicate the possiblity of a Kidney Yang disharmony. Seeking out some Acupuncture could be very beneficial.

I'd go to a different doctor. A swollen knee could be a symptom of an STD. The doctor may discover that your knee is filled with fluid, in which case he'd take a syringe and drain the fluid out. Then culture the fluid for any micro organisms. Then he'd be able to tell you what's causing the infection. Just a suggestion.

Also, did you have any knee surgery before this happend?

And I'd see an acupuncturist while you're at it...can't hurt.:)
