^ Eeeeech! Thank heavens, no. Just agonizing pain.
I should mention that as a kid I played alot of street football with no pads and spent 2 months of every summer kneeling in an aluminum canoe. I subsequently developed Osgood-Schlotters disease in which my knees hurt if you just looked at them. This went away with time. I tried several brands of arthritis meds as well as Tylenol, Motrin etc. and nothing helps. I need to set up an appointment to find out what's going on and maybe suggest a Vicodin drip. I would not be the slightest bit embarrassed to walk around with that drip bag.

They're not a 'fixer', but work well as an 'easer'....if you know what I mean.
A friend of mine recommended this as well. Probably worth a try. The pain is not debilitating.

If you guys use knee pads during sex you would not have all of these problems. On a serious note try to strengthen your thigh muscles. Yoga or water exercises should help.

I found the trick is, as you say Physical Therapy. If you can afford NBA level PT, that really would help. I, on the other hand, only did an hour a day plus at home.

Deal is do what they say. Your knee will not get better by itself. And go to your general practitioner first. He/she will be able to narrow it down. [Now if you weigh 300 pounds, you might not like the answer].

I was doing my qualifying jump, which of course failed. Not that desk flyers needed to qualify but since I originally qualified in 71, I always re-qualified. Wind and flexibility caught up to me.

I ruined my left knee early in high school playing football. I had an operation to remove the meniscus on the inside of the knee and things were ok for about another 35 years. Then, upon occasion, my knee would become inflamed and hurt like hell. To the point where I could hardly walk. In my desperation I spoke to the local pharmacist, who said take Advil. Take a big handful he said, and take it several times a day for Saturday and Sunday. If the problem was still there on Monday, go to an orthopedic doctor. But, the pharmacist told me it is likely the old surgery did not get all the crap in my knee out that got damaged way back when, and now some of the junk was likely floating around and getting into places where it was causing inflamation and irritation. A heavy dose of Advil would address that, and relatively quickly. If I only did the heavy doses for a day or so, there would be no long term stomach or other health consequences.

Well, I did the recommended Advil therapy. 6 regular pills at a time, every 6 hours. I was fine by the next morning (3 doses), stopped taking Advil and the problem didn't come back for more than 18 months. I get the knee to swell when I ski hard for a few days, so I take the Advil therapy when I ski for several days at a time. But for the rest of the year now, I generally don't have the knee issue to deal with at all. The sooner I use the Advil when the issue raises its ugly head, meaning at the first sign of the pain coming back, and it is unique so it is readily recognized, the fewer doses are needed. It never takes more than about a day and half.

My symptoms, other than just the stiffness and pain, include swelling and restrictions on movement. The swelling is the first sign, followed by the pain and loss of motion. So, acting when the swelling starts kills the problem before it becomes painful. Works for me. Try it at your own risk. Jim
