This time when the Synvisc wore off it came with a bunch of fluid that is sitting around my knee cap. As the fluid built up my knee cap started hurting more and more. I've never had any OA pain behind the patella before but I suspect that's what this horrible achy burny grinding is. It's not like the OA pain in other compartments probably because it's a non weight bearing part of the joint. Regardless it's new and different and I need to add it to the list of all the other places and ways in which my knee pains me. What's one more right?
Except... I'm not sure I can take much more. I'm a bit of a grumpy gus right now. Blog is place to vent as I don't self medicate with food or drugs. If only I could talk about it and somehow that would lesson the ouch.
Interesting to compare and contrast this OA pain in the patellofemoral compartment as opposed to the medial and lateral compartments. I wonder if this cartilage is degrading in the same way as the rest of it. Interesting to me how it just hurts differently.
I think about pain too much.
