For the past three nights, I have been woken by the most incredible white hot pain in both knees. It comes in waves like contractions about every 30 seconds and is sharp enough to take your breath away each time. When I get up to take painkillers, my knees keep buckling. Sometimes the pain shoots up my legs to my hips and sometimes down to my ankles.
I have never, in 7 years of RA, experienced anything like this.
Any ideas, gang?
