I have severe OA in both my knees w/ multiple bone spurs. My left one is in pain mostly all the time worst right on knee cap. Well of course I managed to add to my pain by banging it right in the spot that hurts w/ a dumbbell last night. I saw stars for like 10 mins. I sat on the floor and didn't move for an hour
My bad luck continues when today I banged it on a table leg during an inservice at work. My co workers said I turned completely white. The pain was so bad I definitely almost passed out, wow. IT vibrated through my leg and just wouldn't quit. I haven't felt anything like that since before my surgery and my right knee dislocated 3x.
The story goes on. I tried Capzasin a topical ointment for arthritis to help w/ pain. It says it may cause some burning. Well I had an allergic rxn. My knee is bright red and was on FIRE!!!!! and I mean fire for 3hrs. Then I went to ER finally was able to relieve it w/ dishwashing liquid lol. It's still red but the burning has finally stopped. These things only happen to me. My family has nicknamed me Eeyore cuz i have a black rain cloud that follows me lol.
I'm scheduled for hyalgan injections Sept. 9 which I've been waiting for since Nov. but I have to see doc this week 4 x-ray or mri d/t injury. I hope they can give me something for pain cuz I'm going to Florida on vacation in 2wks. Although nothing ever works.
