Just a quick query... I don't suffer from much noticeable external swelling, the only swelling I'd say I really experience feels like its on the inside of my joints, making them stiff or lock up.
Last night I missed taking my daily 60mg of Nortriptyline and have also not bothered taking any paracetamol, ibuprofen or codeine today as I often do.
I don't always take ibuprofen daily so I wouldn't put it down to being that this swelling has only occured due to me not taking an anti-inflammatory based medication?
And I have not done anything to exasperate my knee as all I have done today (due to the lack of painkillers) is get up, shower, make some food and go back to bed (which has become my usual routine as much as I may dislike to accept)
