Subject: Gosh my knees hurt today

i am really suffering with my knees at the moment, physio wondered if i have bursitis in there somewhere. I have a part time job behind a bar as well as working full time nursing and i really struggled tonight behind that bar, not sure how much longer i will be able to do that. Anti-inflammatories for me before bed now i think!

Hi Anita

I've recently been having problems with my knees - I was diagnosed with RA a couple of weeks ago and am waiting for the Rheumatology nurse to prescribe Methotrexate - and I just wondered what physical effects/symptoms do you get in your knees?

I get like a strange tightening feeling around the back, and sometimes sides, with only slight pain? I can't seem to kneel down anymore as it's just too tight! Is yours similar to this?

I did have really bad swelling in one knee after something 'twanged' on getting up off the sofa - this was about a month ago and I had to take a week off work and keep my leg elevated with ice packs to it take down.

I can't seem to find much about knee arthritis symptoms on the internet so any info would be helpful.

Thanks
Tracy

i have a sharp pain slightly to the outside of both knees, particularly the left one, then it travels down towards my ankle and it keeps me awake at night. I was diagnosed with seronegative arthritis a few weeks ago, psoriatic apparantly tho i didn't know i had psoriasis!! The voltarol gel seemed to work yesterday tho i find that the more i do at work the more it seems to flare up. So far so good at moment tho cos i am on nights and so not walking around too much at moment!
