So as many of you know, I had to take some time off work because my knees were too painful after I tried going to them gym (I’ve not had KR and I’m not sure if I suffer from patellofemoral pain syndrome or not, but probably an overuse injury as I’ve not had a sports injury or so. I’ve not had an MRI yet).
I went back to work on Monday after two weeks rest (no more pain at rest and very little after a long walk) and my knees started to hurt again (my job is very physical). I started using this gel I got online and after 2 days, there’s very little pain, I can’t even complain. My knees are not 100% okay but the pain is like a 2/10 at most at time and I have 0 pain sometimes. If I have the walk around really fast it goes up to a 4/10 and it used to be a 7-8/10 at all times at work.
I feel really happy right now because I can continue to work but I’m not sure I’m doing the right thing. I’m not asking for medical advice, but I’m asking for opinions because many of you have more experience with pain. Could the gel just mask the pain and I could be doing more harm than good? It works even better than Naproxen.
I’m going to see my doctor next week so will mention about it. I’m not sure I can tell the name of the gel here, if anyone interested to know, you can PM me.
