My name is Deb. I have osteoarthritis of the knee and am awaiting my first Synvisc 1 shot, 12/12/11. The past few days I have been getting an extremely sharp pain from the knee to the hip. Different cause each time. Each time successively worse. Happens about 10 times a day. By the 7th or 8th time I'm in tears. Today it happened when I went to apply the brake in my car. The worst pain is in the hip area, not the knee.
Any idea what is going on and how to stop it? This is the worst pain I have ever had in my life, and I'm talking from a broken back and 13 levels fused.
