  •  be very careful! (4+ / 0-)

    Youve got alot going on there.  Before you do any exercise, take your pain meds first, NSAIDS like ibuprophen or aspirin if not contraindicated.  You will be much happier then.

    •  Definitely taking ibuprofen &/or aspirin (4+ / 0-)

      Too ouchey to do much of anything otherwise, and it definitely helps! It's weird, I have nerve damage so it doesn't hurt on the side (where presumably some of the injury is, just in the back and in the knee joint itself.  Osteoarthritis runs in the family too, and this is the age it kicked in for my Grandmother, Dad and Aunts and Uncles. Probably a combination of old injury, new injury, and that. Aaaaand I'm probably going to have to get it officially diagnosed one of these days; I haven't had anyone really look at the old damage in about 25 years, because it hasn't been a problem until now.
