Default Fibro knee pain

Hi. New member. Can anyone speak specifically to knee pain. I have an arthritic right knee, but for the past month I have had new pain very specific to the inner aspects of my knees. The right is very bad. Have been on cymbalta for many years. Tylenol arthritic strength and motrin offer minimal relief. I wonder if knee pain is one of the "hot spots" of fibro that I am just beginning to experience. Thanks.

Hello!

Im 19, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia at 14 and my knees have been a constant bother. The upper inside of the knee is a fibromyalgia tender point, i experience this pain as well. One thing that i have tried is K tape, which is an athletic tape and i find that if done properly it holds the knee in a way that they hurt less. I also try rotating heat and cold, which helps to stimulate blood flow and bring down any inflammation. My left knee and left big toe were really hurting me and i brought this up to my chiropractor, who realigned the knee and my pain in the knee has been quite a bit less since. I don't know if you believe in chiropractors but, my chiropractor is great and he has helped to relive a lot of my pain through adjustment, so i recommend to give it a try.

Also, stretching, physiotherapy and massage may be of help to you!

Good luck!

Hi Gramakathy5,

Welcome, I do experience bilateral knee pain from my Fibromyalgia.As always my pains migrate throughout my body.Most of the time it's an aching and continuous pain toward the bottom of my knee cap.It will sometimes cause me to limp due to the pain and can feel like arthritis at times.

Sometimes I'll use a heated bean bag that my mom gave me.It works great! I put it in the microwave for a few seconds and apply it to my knees,and it really helps.Or you can go the cold route and use an ice compress.Sometimes if u have swelling the cold compress can be better.

I also use biofreeze roll on that helps with pain relief.You can purchase that on Amazon for less money and in Walmart.
I also bought knee supports or apply ace wraps for support.If you apply the ace wraps,it's always good to apply them from bottom to top to help your circulation.It also keeps your swelling at bay, if u have any.
I rarely have any swelling when I experience my knee pain.And I try to elevate and rest my legs as much as I can until the pain subsides.


Sorry your having this pain.We never know where Fibro will end up next,but it always seem to change.Unfirtunately the knees are one of Fibromyalgia favorite spots.Hopefully your pain will decrease soon.


Feel better


Sagey

I Think you should opt for water therapy treatment.
