Hi, I am 55 and have bad osteoarthritis in my big toes and mild in my hands and knees. At least I thought it was mild until this week. My rght knee became very painful on Tuesday and has worsened as the week has gone on. Today it felt as if it was going to give way especially when I'm going downstairs.
Does anyone else get this? It seems a very fast deterioration and I'm concerned that it may be something other than my OA. Especially as my gait is starnge because of my bad feet. I walk on my heels and the outside of my feet to avoid putting pressure on my big toes. Now I am wondering whether this has caused me muscle damage. The top of my tibia is very painful when I press on it.
I have a GP appointment on Monday but I'm wondering whether it's more urgent than that and what I should do in the mean time
