Re: Swollen, numb right knee/leg and pain.
Hi! Thank you so much for your reply! You are "spot on" with the back problem issue. I have terrible pain between my shoulder blades, in the thoracic area and lower back. In fact, some days I can hardly stand up or walk. And yes, the pain is in the area just below the knee cap that is tingling and burning pain, and then the fatty area to right and a little below the knee is where I cannot apply any pressure.
You read my mind when you mentioned "not being ill in the eyes of an employer". I have had to call in sick from the reactions to the meds to treat the crohn's, but it was 10 days ago my knee kept me from being able to walk. I will try heat or ice. I am told not to use heat on my back.
Why do these knee problems happen like this?
I have an appointment with an ortho doc November 3.
Thanks again, J
