    Re: HELP FOR MY KNEES, OUCH!!

    I'm so sorry you are experiencing this pain...believe me I know what you are going through! I am scheduled to have total knee replacement on my left knee in April or May. I get sinovial and cortisone injections regularly and take 800 mgs of liquid ibuprophen a day. You should never use heat btw...always cold as it calms down the inflammation that causes pain. If you can get the flareup under control maybe the Alieve will work better. I'm glad you are following your docs advice to take it 4 x's a day. Hopefully the MRI will help give more answers.

      Allie, I've been thinking about you and your knees. Just checking to see if any of our suggestions helped and if have been able to have an MRI. Thanks, Cheryl

        When I saw an orthopedic doctor for my knee pain, his advice was when your knees keep you from doing what you want to do, that's the time for knee replacement. It's a hard decision but one I'm very glad I made. I had my left knee replaced 3 years ago and it's been wonderful. No problems at all. But you must go to a doctor who routinely does many replacements a year. I'm lucky to live 90 miles from a Mayo Clinic so that's where I went. Good luck.

          Not yet(for the MRI,I see the doc in a few weeks again) but i have upped the dose of the Aleve and my pain has alleviated a whole lot. At least I can walk and stand for some amounts of time. I still experience discomfort,especially in the right knee but it has improved greatly. I am also taking Glucosamine with Chondroitin, which needs to build up in your body to help with the joints. Thank you for your concern and i thank everyone for their suggestions.

The agony in my stomach!
            At this time i don't know if I want to try it. I've heard this remedy for everything from acne to heart trouble! I would guess it might have some merit, maybe hopefully the same as a glass of wine! Because of the amount of Aleve I'm taking I don't think I want to try this, however, I'm grateful for the suggestion.

              Take care. I'm glad you are getting some relief. My surgery is Thursday. I had to stop taking the NSAIDS to prepare and my pain has increased significantly. Will be glad when Thursday gets here.

                  Thank you, Allie. I sincerely appreciate your prayers and will pray for you, too that you will find out definitively the cause of your pain and that there is a solution for you. I hope you will update us once you've seen the doctor. Blessings, Cheryl
