    Back of the Knee Pain

    Recently I went to an amusement park and was constantly walking for like 10 hours. By the time I was leaving I found myself having trouble walking and fully straightening my leg without a sharp pain in the back of my knee. When I got home I realized it had just gotten worse. I thought maybe I just need some rest, but it still hurt in the morning? Does anyone know what this is? What might've caused it? And how to treat it?

    THC and trigeminal neuralgia

    I'm 85 and have dealt with trigeminal neuralgia for 15 years. It is getting worse; the carbamazepine is now up to 500mgs per day and that molecule damages liver. I've switched to controling the pain with dronabinol which is THC 2.5mgs. It does the job without any side effects because 2.5mgs are too few to put me into a stoned state. Problem: insurance. They want to insure dronabinol for cancer patients, for appetite, vomiting, that sort of thing. Dronabinol is available out of pocket from....

    ACL Reconstruction - Hamstring Graft - Knee Pain

    I had ACL reconstruction surgery about 13 weeks ago with a hamstring graft from my own hamstring. PT was going good until around 8 weeks when I started feeling this bad pain in my right kneecap/ patella tendon area. The pain would not go away so at 12 weeks when I was suppose to start doing light jogging exercises, I was not able to. The pain is getting better but it is holding me back because I feel I cant attempt to jog because the pain might be that strong. I also had to stop doing certain things....

    I was on opioids for 3 years and decided to test neuromodulation and I am very happy I did! I contacted Saint Jude's and set up a trial with my neurosurgeon. The trial went well and I had the unit implanted. I can adjust the settings to my liking and have gone from agonizing pain to very acceptable minor ache without the need Or worrying of Opioids.
