What causes pain in my knee while walking?

I had knee replacement on 5/13. I continue to have the most horrible pain. Walking good, still having PT 3 times a week. Can not sleep at night. The pain is continuous and truly alike a nagging tooth ache. .Nothing seems to touch the pain. Quit with narcotics but, they never helped. Any suggestions????

Hello,

Cannot say in your particular case, but generally, the pain has lessened by a month afterward.

The first thing would be checking for some disaster. X rays and just whether the knee bends would rule out most problems. Certainly, aspirin-like drugs of more than one variety would be the main ones to try.

Also, warm soaks and actually deep water like a swimming pool puts pressure on the whole area and lowers swelling. If it works, physical therapy with a pool--called aquatherapy is often very good.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
