Bad Knees!

Very bad knees, I started cooking this morning but suddenly felt a pain in my right knee. I sat down for a bit and it went away. But when I stood up it still hurt.

So, I can't stand without being in excruciating pain. Well I can stand a bit, as long as my right knee is bent (it hurts less the more it is bent)

I tried wearing my knee brace, taking lots of naproxen (Aleve) and Ibuprofen, an ice pack, and staying off of it.

It is a little better, but it has cut down on my productivity today.

Try not to overdo the painkillers. I hope you feel better soon! [hugs]

painkillers

I'm beginning to worry about the painkillers.

On the one hand I'm not developing a dependency, I'm in pain. and when my doctor gave me a Rx it was just for a large does of naproxen (So why not just dose myself?)

On the other hand there are warnings about taking these drugs over long periods of time, which do worry me. The last time I talked to a dr about going over the recommended doses of naproxen he didn't think it was a problem.

I do have an appointment to see my dr and I want to talk to him about some things.

Good! Take care, Zahde.
