    I am suffering from knee pain and I am 47 years old man. Pain is not severely but specially when I walk on staircase I feel more painful otherwise I don't feel during the walking on plain ground. I didn't understand what's wrong with my knee. Can I have a simple answer?

      Hi Fauda, as the knee is a complex joint with lots of influences acting upon it, so you’ll really need to see a doctor here for a physical examination in order to determine what might be going on. It could be wear and tear in which case Glucosamine sulphate may be useful, but you’ll need that diagnosis before I can properly advise. I the meantime, applying some Atrogel 2-4 times daily should help the discomfort.

    Pain as if someone is hitting my kneecap down the middle with a chisel, this happens if I weghtbear in it while walking up stairs. It is so incredibly painful. I ran into a wardrobe door about 10 years ago whilst sleepwalking . It swelled up and was painful. I didn't see gp I just treated it with ice and heat . But now the pain is just to much

      Hi Sally, I would recommend you see a doctor here, as you say it could be that an old injury has flared up or there could be something additional going on but we couldn’t say for sure – you would need to have a physical examination to confirm. In the meantime, applying some Atrogel 2-4 times daily should help the discomfort.
