Burning Pain in knees
I get the burning pain, swelling and buckling feeling quite often. I too have the problems with the ankles, hips, and feet. However, I know that while on my 5mg pred. it does help. I too was on Vioxx and not I am on Relafen (sp?). It doesn’t work as well but, it does help.
Hang in there… better, brighter days are coming.
Hi, again Millie...My Doc and I are still trying to find the right one's for me. So, far I've tried various combinations of Celebrex, Naprosyn (sp), Vicodin, Mobic and Neurontin. So, far the Mobic & Neurontin with an occassional Vicodin seem to help. The DR. said he might want to try steroids for 2 weeks, however I'm not sure about that.
Since, I've been diagnosed, I've had a slipped disc, stomach flu, directly followed by an upper respirtory. I think it's been more difficult to determine what's going to work for me, with everything else that's been going on.
He's also advised some dietary changes; along with a multi-viatmin.
It's not easy is it?
Welcome! ANd yes, I have intense burning in my knees, kips, elbows, neck, back.......ect.............heck my eyes even hurt!
I Think it is from the swelling pressing against the nerves, but I am not DR. and prob need to have that checked. I am always stiff, always in pain. I had ulcers over a year ago and right now I cannot be taking anything for swelling, but ya know what? Aleve may have to be taken cause it gets to be too much doesn't it?
lyndeeOlive, Dory, and Lyndee, I just wanted to thank all of you for your input and advice. Seems we've all experienced the burning pain and knee buckles. I do know the Celebrex isn't helping at all and I'm so reluctent to go back on the Preg. even though I know it helps I detest the weight gain factor when taking it. Maybe I'll try the Bextra and hope that will help. I wonder if the burning pain ever goes away, does anyone know? Thanks all and take care.I've had burning in my left knee for 5 months now. Xrays showed
osteoarthritis. My Rheumi recommended Hyalgan shots (series of 5)
which I have not done. Instead I found a set of exercises to do
which are specifially for this problem. The burning is worst when I'm
lying on my side with my other leg pressing on the knee. I sleep
with a very soft pillow between my knees for that reason.
The burning is much less now as time is passing then then it was.
But I am still very stiff after sitting long periods. I hope you have
found some relief for yours.
I do a series of low impact exercises for my legs, sometimes it helps, sometimes it sems worse. There re just no too many options for me at this time so I try to make the best of it but at times it is really difficult. I heard Aleve is not a good thing to take either, so I am rather stumped at what to do. Pillows help, I practcally live on a heating pad,and rest.
I hope you get to feeling better!
