Another symptom is the muscle or tissue feels so sore as if it's getting friction burn and the bones sometimes keep clicking and feels like someone's smashing my legs bones and muscles with a thousand hammers all up and down my legs

      Mine felt sore. Like I had a circulation issue at first. Then it hit worse. Squeezed feeling. Then it started to lock up on me as pieces got chewed up and floated around and it caught in the joint. By the time I finally got the operation , I could barely get up a set of stairs.

    I wish I knew. . . the only vague thing that rings a bell is the 'wet' feeling.  that I have also experenced, and I think it has to do with the nerve endings.  Perhaps you should also see a neurologist?  Nerves could have been damaged . . and believe me, nerve pain is very, very bad . . . I have experienced it after a knee replacement. I hope you get some answers and soon get back to normal.

    I'm sorry to have to say this but you're not going to get the help you need here, no matter how often you try. I don't know where you are or what might be available to you locally but your only real hope is through medical professionals. Forums can be useful but they can't fix what ails you!

    I would recommend going to see a Chiropractor. They are expensive but worth every penny. After numerous Vists to my GP & pysio, and getting no answers I finally went to see a Chiropractor. On my first vist I finally got answers to my symptoms

    You are going to need immediate help from an orthopedic surgeon. You may be referred to a neurologist or neurosurgeon. You have put so much stress on your body that its going to take tests and professional analysis........and the sooner the better. Safe to say, its isn't going to fix itself

    I would advise you to get a GP to refer you to an orthopaedic surgeon.

    These really are the best people to see and do whatever they advise you.

    This may be quite a long wait, but it will be worth it in the end.

    I was lucky, I had TKR 4 years ago and had an excellent consultant.

    Total succes, it is like having my life back.

    Hope you get the same result.

    Keep in touch

    Sounds like my journey i frustrated when they keep telling you they don't see anything. Ask them to do a bone scan and that will show the blood and if it's going to the knee or its pooling sonewhere.
