Discussions that mention tylenol

General Health board


Don't you love it when they don't have an answer and tell you it is all in your head.
I have had pain in my legs deep pain like your talking about for about a year.
I have diabetes so naturally I go right away. Nothing, I had all sorts of tests and they keep saying nothing is wrong, no blockages etc.
At night sometimes it hurts like heck and I get up and put heat on my legs.
So far the only thing I take is that Tylenol for arthritis and it seems to help a lot.
I get this swelling just above my knee like a swollen spot that comes and goes with the pain. I rub it, massage it, it goes away. Doesn't hurt but when I walk a lot it flares up and my knee hurts. Maybe it is arthritis but
something is not right. I suppose when I get older again, they will come up with a name other then stress. :)
I've got a similar problem, well at least with pain and the doc not listening. I hit the top of my knee while climbing a ladder, when I put my knee down I heard a snap. I was in great pain and could barely stand. At first the doctors said I bruised the bone. It's been six months and have been seeing an Orthopedic for 2 mos. He said I have petella tendonitous and am going to PT but it's not helping much. I need to have an MRI done, I believe I have a PCL tear. The only thing I can do for the pain is ice, allergic to ibuprofin and tylenol doesn't help.
Can you think of anything that brought on the pain? Where is the deep pain specifically at in your leg? Does it feel like shin splints? If you haven't tried take a calcium supplement for awhile and see if it might help. My pain feels like you smacked your funny bone, but on and around the knee cap. Hope I helped some :wave:

I think I will try the Tylenol Arthritis. I haven't tried anything OTC. I wondered if it was arthritis, too, but I'm only 24. I know some people my age who have arthritis but it's usually in their hands, not their legs. And can't they test for that? (Thanks so much for replying to my thread!)

My family doc said that arthritis showed up in my back on an xray. Don't know for sure if it does, but that is what he said.
