Sorry to bother you but I'm in desperate need of some help,

Since October 2006 my right knee has been very sore, when I'm walking it hurts just below my knee cap and when I'm relaxing it hurts at both sides of the joints, i went to see my GP who gave me pain killers and said to come back in 2 weeks if it was still sore, unfortunately the pain didn't go, it started getting worse, i went to see my GP 8 more times trying 7 more different types of pain killers until he decided to refer me to an orthopedic consultant,

I went to see the Orthopedic consultant on the 27th December 2006, i had an X-Ray that came back with no abnormalities, I then had an MRI scan that came back the same way,

Two days after seeing the Orthopedic consultant i had to go to an A & E department at my local hospital as the pain had gotten that bad i couldn't walk on my leg, they gave me some crutches but told me they couldn't do anything but give me some more pain killers,

My life since the 29th December 2006 has altered completely, i couldn't return to work after the Christmas break so am now working from home (luckily i can do that in my job), the pain is the same, but more problems have occurred, every morning my knee is so sore and stiff it takes about 30 minutes to get out of bed, my knee keeps going hot and changes from a normal skin colour, to red and sometimes purple, it aches constantly, and I'm still on crutches as I'm unable to put my body weight on the leg as it hurts to much, the pain is in the same places as before, but my foot on the same leg has also started hurting, what is quite strange and hard to explain is, i also get a feeling of freezing cold liquid going though my knee and foot, strangest feeling i've ever had,

I been back to see the Orthopedic consultant but he told me he didn't have a clue what it could be, he's now referred me to a pain clinic and a physio to make to walk again,

I'm getting quite worried, all my symptoms seem to be suggesting Arthritis but none of the tests (X-ray and MRI) have shown this, and i'm worried that if they take away the pain and help me to walk again, i might be doing more damage without even knowing

Again sorry for bothering you, but I'm desperate and in need of some advice,

Thanks for anything you can tell me

Hi Rackel,

Sorry to hear you're in so much pain 🙁

Can you describe the pain a bit more? Do you get any pains in your back, hips or any other sensations? Pins & Needles, numbness, shooting pain, burning etc. Any swelling?

Have you thought of other treatments for pain relief other than drugs? I found accupuncture to be wonderfully effective for my back pain. (Which I've had for 20 years & they don't know what it is either!). There are lots of things out there, I'm sure others can suggest lots more.

Have you seen an osteopath or chiropractor? On a more emotional side, there are schools of thought that link knee problems to being stubborn& being inflexible......don't know how true this is ;)so please don't take offence.

Hope all turns out well for you.

Love & Light

AG

The pain when i'm relaxing is kind of an ache that won't go away, i also get i feeling of freezing cold liquid when i'm relaxing,
when i'm walking the knee swells up straight away and turns red/purple and burns up, this is a different pain, this is more of a stabbing pain,

Sorry its hard to explain,

RE: Please Help

Hello rackel. i understand your pain and agony. i had the same exactly problem with you a couple of years ago... the answer is not in the painkillers but in one's whole diet. I had tried several chemical drugs and orthopedic doctors with no results. i had been diagnosed of a rare variety of osteoarthritis that strikes young persons. i had too, stubbing pains on my knee and couldn't walk without pain. X rays and MRIs showed nothing. i was so desparate and disillusioned from doctors that i started thinking of alternative therapies. So i came across aholistic doctor who specialises in herbal therapy. She told me that my problemwasmy diet. I quit all animal products and became a vegan. i also quit fried food, caffeine, tobacco, alcohol, carbonated drinks, and white sugar as these werenot healthy substances that worsensarhtritic inflations...

Within the first month i felt better. Now i haveregained mymobility and now i try toadopt a more rawvegan diet as i believe it is more natural for the potential of self-therapy that our body has...

Health Freak is absolutely right. I myself have gone on to a "meat free" diet though I am rated as "healthy" but I have seen too many of my friends getting cancers, strokes etc . I will suggest you go on a vegen diet, drinking plenty of water always help, and like me, I take a lot of honey - natural unprocessed honey with B Pollen. I have also started on Mangosteen Juice and that has really helped my friend with arthritis problems.

Mymother used to have swollen knees years ago and she used our local Tiger Balm paste. I do not know where you live but here in Asia, when there is a swelling, we prefer to keep the swelling area warm and dry as opposing to the West's use of ice on swellings.

How old are you? This could be a syx of rheumatoid arthritis - especially if any other joints are involved.

I don't necessarily agree that a meat free diet is always the best option - it certainly works for some but not others. It is very difficult to ensure that you are taking in the full spectrum of amino acids if you don't eat animal protein - and you need these for muscle growth and repair - especially in a situation where you have an inflammatory process.

I also agree with health freak. My baby sister changed her diet and became absolutely arthritis pain-free. It DOES WORK-especially with regard to the elimination of meat (or at least a drastic cut back). Search my post in arthritis forum for details.

Hi

Have you thought of alternative therapies? Crystals can help a great deal, particularly if you rub them over your painful knees - a friend of mine straps her's to her knee at night and the pain is gone in the morning. Malacholla is the one to look for - a combination of Malachite for the pain and Chrysocolla for the swelling - its full of copper sulphate, which is the base chemical for anti-inflammatory medication. Just charge it up in sunlight, which causes the molecules of the crystal to vibrate and in turn these vibrations remove pain/swelling.

Diet is also important - Health freak is spot on - definately cut out red meat, dairy and as much acidic foods as you can as these will worsen any arthritic condition. You do not need animal proteins or animal amino acids - you just need protein & amino acids and there are plenty of alternatives to animal meat. The main reason animal meat is bad for arthritics is that the meat is hung and eaten by putrefaction bacteria for weeks until it is soft enough for humans to digest. This bacteria attacks our own degrading joints - sticking to bird/fish that is eaten fresh is the best option, avoid red meat.
Hope the above helps.
Namaste
