Hi All, I had my knee replaced about 9 years ago...did not have many issues. The replacement was a success as far as I was concerned. But, all of a sudden, since the first of July 2016, I have had these terrible "attacks"...it starts with terrible pain in the back of knee, incredible pain! Hard to describe, almost 10 out 10 pain...can't walk on it, move it, walk on it, lift it. These attacks usually last about 12 hours...I rest it and ice it. It slowly recovers, stiff and sore, but I regain some mobility. I work in the school system so just kind of assumed these attacks would work themselves out over the summer...though maybe I pulled something. My first attack happened while I was cleaning my daughter's room....no serious trauma. I am scheduled to see my surgeon October 21st and my other knee is so terrible that it has to be replaced in the next year or so, according to my surgeon. An x-ray showed Knee replacement in proper alignment. I have these attacks weekly and they are getting to be more frequent. In between, my knee very stiff and very sore, lots of pain. I have been to physio which has helped relieve the painful muscles associated with this...but it has not fixed it. I have also tried cupping and accupuncture. I am stumped. I did go on a trampoline field trip with my class of pre-kindergarten's in June...I don't know if that has anything to do with it. Any information, or any advice. One physio told me that she didnt' thing my replacement was "normal"...another said it had to do with my knee or ankle...anyone out there with similar issues? Thanking you!
