    I have sudden onset of pain to inner aspect of right knee which is worse on bending and walking and wakes me at night. Pain is localised but complicated because I suffer from arthritis so Doctors put pain down to that but it is a different pain and feels muscular.

      Hello Mrs J Sudden onset of pain is often caused by an accusation of tiny tears to connective tissues over a long period of time. When the threads are finally torn, only then does the pain arrive. Tendons connect bones to muscles and so that's perhaps why it feels more muscular, rather than in the joint. Our Atrogel should help you manage the pain over the next few days and is safe to use with any other medication you may be using.

      Hello Dean I'm afraid we can't diagnose you over the internet but you may have an issue called a medial ligament sprain, usually brought on by a twisting motion. If correct (and you'll really need to see a physiotherapist or osteopath), it will take a while to heal as ligaments have a very poor blood supply. You should find applying our Atrogel daily helps your comfort level.

      Hello John You'll need to consider the average length of recovery time from such surgery, ask if physiotherapy is available and think about whether anything else could be aggravating the knee, as outlined in this article (flat arch, inward rolling ankles etc).
