how's about celecoxib 100mg bd ok friend
That does not sound like pain I have had with my RA, but more information would be needed to determine if that is a consideration. Do you have pain in your other knee? How long has this been hurting? Have you tried rest, elevation and either heat or ice?
If you can, see your doctor so he/she can evaluate your knee and develop a plan to get you out of pain. I know there is nothing more miserable than being in unrelenting pain. I hope you feel better soon!
Hi! Thanks for responding to my post. To answer your questions, I don't have any pain in my other knee or thigh. As of today, it's been hurting for a week, but the pain has toned down the last couple of days. I haven't gotten any relief from elevation or applying heat or ice. It's driving me nuts. My mother suffered with RA and my symptoms never sounded like anything she went through. Once again, thanks for responding to both you and zeeoat.
I'm not a doctor but I get pain on the outside of my knee which goes down the side of the leg and sometimes radiates to the center. I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis and illiotibial band tendonitis. Do you exercise or run? If so, it could be ITB tendonitis.
Cindee makes a great point. Thanks for sharing your experience and dx. I am glad to read that your symptoms are getting better. Sometimes these things just take time, even when we see the doctor. Hang in there.
