Right Knee
« on: February 14, 2012, 05:22:06 pm »
I could use a Deryni Healer right now.

For some time, my knees, particularly my right knee, have been stiff & sore in the mornings, but after I got up and moved around a bit, they limbered up again. 

However, last week my right knee started hurting all the time--when I stood, when I walked, especially when I went up and down stairs.  If the leg were immobile for any time, it would freeze up.  I've been trying ice and heat and ibuprofen.  Nothng helped.
Finally I went to the doctor today; he ordered X-rays and gave me a stronger anti-inflammatory.  I'll see what he says.

You might want to check with your doctor to see if he thinks glucosamine might be helpful.  When my husband tore the cartilage in his kneecap and had to have surgery on it several years back, he took glucosamine supplements afterwards, and that seemed to help him a great deal during the recovery process.  IIRC, it's also used to help with the symptoms of osteoarthritis.  Like any other dietary supplement / herbal remedy / anything not strictly prescription, I'd run it by your doctor first to make sure there aren't any nasty interactions between glucosamine and any medications you might already happen to be taking, or any problems it might cause with any other current medical condition(s) you might have, etc.  But I've known several people with knee or other joint problems who have found it helpful.

The pills seem to be helping; it still hurts, but not as much, at least as long as I don't try the stairs.
