Dear Sir, I am 60 years old, a retired police officer with a well built body. My body weight is 110KG. I am now going for a walk of 3 KM in the morning and 3 KM in the evening. My grievance is that for the past one day I suffuring from an acute pain surrounding my right knee, The pai becomes unbearable, while folding my right leg, while standing and walking. Previously, I had uric acid problems as a result of which I had pain in my ankle area. The local ortho doctor prescribed ZYLORIC and FEBUTAG tablets. I took it regularly for 6 months. Thereafter, the pain automatically got reduced. Hence, I discontinued those tablets. Now, I have unbearable pain surrounding my right knee. But, there is no swelling or redness around the pained area.

I developed a sore right knee about a week and a half ago - hurt to walk, warm to touch, top of kneecap sore. Can bend back no problem, but hurts when rising from chair and is painful at times. Have used ice packs and use compression bandage which helps. Particulary sore after awakening in morning but no trouble sleeping. On the day it started I had been walking as I do on a daily basis. I went to my local doctor who said I had patella quadriceps tendonopathy and she gave me some literature with exercises to do which I have been doing but find them painful. I am 64 years old and definitely not an athlete. I just wanted a second opinion as i don t seem to be getting any better.

Hi, this is my 22nd day of Shingles - I am having a pretty tough time and the last week or so I have been having to deal with nausea as well - thought tonight I would google nausea and shingles - happy to read that nausea is connected with shingles so in a way that is a relief! and its not something else I have to research - I don t as a rule go to doctors but the pain etc etc is really getting me down, I have acute pain in my left knee the same side as my shingles outbreak - located at C3-5 across my back and under left arm - the knee problem came first probably about 4 weeks prior to the shingles - I was wondering if the 2 problems could be related? I am as a rule an extremely health and active 62yo woman. Both the nausea and knee problem are causing me much unpleasantness, I would appreciate some advice. Judy from Australia - hesitant about giving credit card details - will seek advice from local doctor tomorrow - sorry.
