Just when I thought everything was going a little better and that soon I'd be out (or at least less miserable) of pain or at the least I would be in less pain then I am now, the other shoe drops!  More bad news from my end my friends as it looks like I am going to get to see a new doctor.  I've made an appt. with an ortho doc to see what the heck is wrong with my right knee.  Where the pain was now and then and it was not very strong, has now turned into an all day 24/7 affair with horrible pain that sends me into tears.
Not only is my back and leg killing me from the way I am walking, favoring the right knee and wearing my brace, but I am now dealing with a knee that is sending shock waves through my brain and making me crazy.  To top that off I will not get into this new doc until the 13th of Oct. so I am going to have to wear my brace and try to get through this without killing someone.  UGGGG can it get any worse you ask?  Why yes it can!!!!!  Hubby and I are getting ready to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary and hunting season as well! 
Gee when it rains it pours right?!
What doesn't kill us only makes us fight back harder! :P

I'm sorry to hear that too Scarred. Knees are my territory too, then if you limp your lower back hurts and your hips go!!! Very hard to find a way to walk that doesn't throw everything else out. Best wishes to you, Oct is forever away when you're in such pain, so big hugs and try to rest as much as you can, golitho

Thank you all for your warm thoughts and well wishes. I just don't understand what I did to make it hurt ya know? I haven't had a problem with my knees since 1989 when I had my last patalar realignment for kneecaps that were dislocating.

Oh well, it will all work out in the end I guess LOL. At least I still have my looks hahahahaha!

Hi, Scarred,
Sometimes we just don't know, right? These bodies of ours take off on their own journeys, often without our permission!! My one knee has been hurting lately, too, and it's the one that I had an ancient injury on decades ago. But I think it's because of the weight I'm putting on, which I'm growing more and more convinced is related to at least one of my medications.

Ack, knee pain really can screw everything up as far I am concerned. I have had 5 knee surgeries and let me tell ya, bad knees can really mess with a bad back too.carred for your sake I do hope whatever it is is minor and they can get you over this hump.
