About a couple of days ago I started having warm to hot knees but I don't really see any swelling, redness or pain.
They just feel warm, sometimes hot to touch.
The only thing I know is that I started taking Amlodipine 10 milligrams to manage essential hypertension.
Is this a side effect of amlodipine? I don't see it in the package insert. Or is it a sign of arthritis?
I'm 27 years old in a very stressful environment as an ER nurse in a rural area catering to more than 10 municipalities (we're the only tertiary hospital in the area) so I'm a bit overweight and frequently have elevated blood pressure at work.
I try to maintain a healthy diet, my vitamin supplements are the following
Vitamin B complex
Multivitamin + Lysine (also includes some vitamin Bs)
I take these religiously. Vit C and multi vit in the morning, vit B complex and folic in the evening. Ampalaya extract and cillium every meals.
I've been taking these for a long time, the warm/hot knees started when I took amlodipine though.
