I've had osteoarthritis in my knees for many years. Last week I had a trapeziectomy operation which was extremely stressful as the regional nerve block didn't work properly. Three days later my right knee suddenly became extremely painful - throbbing - and swelled up. I couldn't walk on it, I've been using ibuprofen gel and paracetamol and it has improved very slightly today ((3 days in).
Considering the speed of the swelling and pain, does this sound like pseodo gout to you? I had pain and swelling of the other knee six weeks ago, but it was nothing like this. I'm thinking of seeing my GP to discuss it, but would appreciate your thoughts.
