    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Leg swollen from above knee to ankle. Lots of stiffness. Lots of pain. The arthritic pain is gone but in its place is a very tender to the touch or a bump pain that can bring tears to the eyes. I have done PT sessions 3 times in 2 years. One shot of cortisone that did nothing. My OS just stares uninterested and makes no remarks of what might be wrong. X-rays look good according to him.

    Naturally, I am frustrated. Are there others who are experiencing this?

    PS: Many foods we consume are very inflammatory and I would look at that first and go from there....cut out sugars for starters and carbs mostly.
