... can get some relief?
Ouch, had that problem and I eventually had to have knee surgery. Have you tried heat or cold on it? I found that ibuprofen (sp) helped with the
inflammation. I used the coated so it wouldn't bother my stomach. Judy
You should see your dr. It may be something that can be fixed. The NSAIDS are the go to drug for joint pain.
Please go back to the doctor. Get tested for Lymes disease. This happens to be a symptom of that disease. That way it can be treated with antibiotics or can be ruled out.
Another possibility is that you have been doing a lot of work kneeling on a hard surface. Either way, it may need to be drained to prevent further damage. Don't let it go too long as you don't want the cartilage to erode.
If none of these is the case, keep at it and find the source. Aleve can also help with pain. Just be sure you don't use it too long.
