Neil L. -

More a question, but I'm frequently faced with a pt complaining of non-traumatic joint pain, usually a knee, and it looks normal, not red, not hot and no effusion. As expected, these pt's ALWAYS complain of severe pain, fevers, inability to walk and every other concerning symptoms. Labs are fine, xray is normal, exam is as above. Do you tap these? I have at times found it somewhat challenging to get fluid out of a normal knee or ankle. Usually, I can but I never want to and the aforementioned pt's are invariably not the most tolerant of multiple attempts. Any systematic approach to the normal looking joint with a nonsensical history?
