Serious muscle pain

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am 15 months post TKR. I was very successful and followed the usual recovery until maybe 3 months ago. now I am very held back by very painful muscles, from the top to the bottom of my leg. not cramps but pain enough to stop me from sleeping. it feels like a deep burning sensation. is this familiar to anyone? it is mostly when I am at rest or sleeping.

    I am six months after bilateral TKR and about month four I had that pain. The surgeon says that it is from using muscles that have not been active for a long time. I finally got relief from the muscle pain by having massage and suction cupping.

    I am at day 20 post LTKR and am doing well except for intense burning at my knee cap. It really hurts and I can't figure out whats causing it. I am taking minimal pain meds - 1 a day and gave full range of motion, as I have been working with my pt and doing my exercises. I don't see much on this forum on this problem. HELP!!
