Hello, I haven't been here for quite awhile, and from what I see, it doesn't look like this forum is exactly flourishing, but who knows.... I wanted to comment on your situation, because I had both knees replaced nearly ten years ago, and I have intense pain in my right knee. The orthopedist I consulted about this didn't have much to offer me, but did remark that I seem to have a condition where the bone grows "under" the prosthetic. Otherwise, everyone seems to think I don't have a problem, when I know that I do. I'm not at all sure what to do, although I take LDN and I use various pain control measures, to little avail. Your remark about "shin splints" reminded me of how it feels, but perhaps that is not what you're experiencing. I'd be interested to know if you're making any progress managing your problems. I too have dangerously low Vitamin D, but have been supplementing for years, and I use a supplement that's 10,000 IUs daily, rather than the prescription I used to use. I have been to rheumatologists and integrative physicians, and the latter seems to have been most helpful. Otherwise, I just hear "osteoarthritis," go home, lose some weight, etc. I really feel that we are living in an increasingly toxic environment, and that there is way more going on than the allopathic physicians would have us believe.
