    Severe Knee Pain

    I have severe arthritis in both knees. It has progressed rapidly in the past 6 months. The stiffness has caused me to tear cartilage in both knees. It's gotten so bad I can barely walk!! Most nights I can't sleep for the pain. I've seen an Orthopedic surgeon who put injections in them but it only swoll and hurt more. I've taken Diclofenac but it doesn't help. The Orthopedic surgeon says I need double knee replacement surgery but due to other health issues I'm not a good candidate for the surgery. Surely there's some way I can get some relief. I've gone to physical therapy but I hurt too bad and afterwards I hurt more!!! Help please!!!!!

    RE: Severe Knee Pain

    *** and has been taking naproxen for years and says she could not continue without it, so I guess it's not that bad. I am taking some antioxidant supplments. Not sure yet how much they help.
    I stopped swimming because my symptoms were not relieved during and after the swim. I used to love going in pool, but now I resist it. Too achy.
