To much pain!
BeautifulBuffalo posted:
I have so much pain in my left leg. I've had surgery 3 times on my knee 2 major surgeries. I need a knee replacement. I injured my left foot when I fell down the stairs and my foot just slid down the stairs hitting each step. The pain and swelling are in the bottom of my foot upper part. It's swollen and have some numbness in my toes.

I went to the mall today and my foot and leg hurt so bad walking awhile on it gave me great pain to a point I was limping and my leg was getting weak the more I walked.

I had a cortizone shot in my knee 3 weeks ago and don't even feel like I had it anymore.

Any idea what I can do for all this pain.

Hi BB,

It's now a couple of days later and I hope this latest pain has eased a bit for you.

It doesn't sound like walking the mall was the best idea for you. I know I have to pace myself and make choices to keep the pain at bay as much as possible too.

And I often use ice to ease inflammation and swelling, etc.
