Yesterday I hit an all time low. I am not sure what the knee pain is about but it, well, sucks. The pain is in the entire leg but seems to stay in the joint area the worst. Last night I had heat on it for a while switching from back/hip to knee to ankle. But by the time I went to bed I could not bend my knee without crying. My husband helped me into bed and tried to massage it a little bit but his touching my knee was very painful. I don't know how normal this is. I am very used to leg pain just not this kind. Today it is like nothing was wrong last night. I hurt but not to the extent it was last night.
At the same time it is also going numb through the entire leg. Sometimes I wonder if it is the way I am sitting causing it to go numb or if it is actually the back problems that is the reason. Is it normal for the numbness to be there suddenly and go away in minutes or am I just sitting wrong? I don't know if I will ever get used to the new pains that keep showing up.
