Since Xmas I have been experienceing this burning pain in the left knee cap and just above. It happens when the joint has been in a bent position for some time, (In the night - sitting still etc). If I try to straighten the leg it really hurts and I have to slowly work the joint till it settles down. When I forget and stand up sometimes I have to sit back down as I cannot take my weight on it. I Have Rheumatoid arthritis which has been more active since I fractured my shoulder last summer and the pain is similar to that I get in my fingers, again if they have been still for some time. As if the tendon is sticking.
Once it is gone it is fine untill the joint is still for too long again. I can walk fine with no pain at all.
Does this sound familiar to anyone. I am on Plaquenil and Meloxicam full dose where I was on half before.
Thank you for reading
