    I also have the fatty pads on both knees, both sides of the knee caps. I have OA of both knees, and have undergone injections for the pain. It did not make the swelling go away. Before I was diagnosed with the OA, I asked my neurologist about the fatty pads, and he said it is part of the fibro.

    Are your fatty pads numb? Mine are, and also a part of my calf going down the outside of my leg.

    Good luck with this dd.

    thank you for you response , I have taken grape seed until a couple of months ago . I quit all my medications and tried just supplements except pain meds . I guess that was not the right thing to do either . thanks again .
