A Pain in the Knee

I have nothing to say. I'm just waiting for spring. I guess I could talk about my knee. It began hurting about a month ago and I ignored it as long as I could. It finally won the battle and I gave in and went to my Doctor. Today he injected a shot of something into the knee and it's already beginning to feel better. Amazing!! Why did I wait so long? The shot was totally painless. The moral of the story is, if you get a pain in the knee go to the doctor immediately. Don't do as I do, do as I say.

Lorrene, I'm only 43 and dealing with that same pain in the knee ( well, for me the diagnosis is Reactive Arthritis), Anyway, they offerd me a shot in the knee and I was too scared! Next time, because of you, I will say yes! In the meantime, Advil it is!

Stay warm!

They put a numbing solution on first, and I was expecting pain, but it did not hurt at all. Mine is Arthritis also. It felt better last night than it does today. He said it takes about 48 hours for the pain to go totally away. That will be in the morning. I can't wait.

It only stopped the pain for about a week and it came back again.
