Shooting pain in the knee during and after urination. Had arthroscopy on the other knee recently. Suggestions?

Hi I have just today experienced excruciating pain shooting like a sharp constant flick to the right hand side of my left knee when I try to urinate or stop urinating. When I tighten my pelvic muscle I also get the same pain. If I straighten my leg it seems to go away for a short time. It does not hurt to pass urine and haveno other pain. I live in the tropics and drink plenty of water during the day sufficient to keep hydrated. I recently had an arthroscopy on my right knee 7 days ago. Thanks

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain you had near your knee is likely to be due to a sudden muscle spasm. This is commonly seen in electrolyte imbalances, Vitamin B complex deficiency, thyroid hormone disturbances or dehydration. You can start with appropriate supplements and see if it improves.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
