Knee pain: Hello I was wondering if... - Osteoarthritis Ac...
I was down too 1mg of pred when both my knees became painful. The doctor booked me in for physio. 1 month on I'm still waiting. My left knee swelled up. I went back up to 10mg of pred which reduced my knee swelling & pain.
Physio will give me a steroid injection in my knee which should reduce pain for 6 months.
i've reduced to 7 mg of pred & knee pain is bearable.
I guess your knees are like mine which after 63 years have lost some cartilage.
Have you had knee xray or MRI? Giving you physical therapy is great if they know what issue your having and steroid injections are not something that should be often and pred is same as injections not given long term.
If your knees are swelling do you have a torn meniscus or tendon along with Arthritis in your knees but you won't know any of this unless they MRI your knee (which is better to see tendon and meniscus tears)then xray.
Physiotherapy helps. Can you do any Skype sessions with your physio? It can help with strengthening excercises for quads, hamstring etc unless ofcourse if you’re experiencing sharp pain which may be because of a meniscus tear etc. icing also helps. Also RICE (rest, ice , compress and elevate ) is a good advise!
