After a scope on both knees, I was in severe pain that never went away. Now, I take one Vicodin a day, which works enough to get me through.

I was diagnosed with gout in the knee (aspiration/microscopic testing) about a month ago. Prescribed Colchicine but I do not like possible side effects so have not taken it. Pain is excruciating in the soft tissue behind the knee and in upper muscle area of calf. I take extra strength Tylenol.

My pain is in the inner part of the leg closer to the knee. No pain when sitting no pain when standing but pain when getting up for about 1 minute until it adjusts. I am on my feet all day and my leg is a little double jointed, when I stand it is not straight it is inverted with the back part of the leg pointing out like a small arc.

I've had pain in my left knee for about 3 months now; some times it's so bad I feel like vomiting. I just had an MRI done Friday and it came back with nothing wrong. I wonder if I am going crazy, nothing wrong but hurts like the dickens after a day of shopping or working. Nothing helps anymore not even narcotics.

I've got tendonitis and bursitis in both of my knees, with the left 1 being extremely painful. Just had a procedure done where they draw blood from your arm and inject it into the tendons they've roughed up with a needle. It was very painful but I'll know in a matter of a month if it worked. I've tried everything else: 3 cortisone shots in knees, physical therapy, electric stimulation, massage therapy, ice, rest, elevation, ibuprofen and other pain medications none of it has helped AT ALL.
