I’m getting worse


Recommended Posts

Has anyone had horrible pain in the knee like the muscles are so tight and you can’t straighten your leg out all the way without feeling horrible pain. I have had this for eight months after a long plane flight. I was checked for a blood clot in my leg that was negative. X-rays taken nothing broke. I do have arthritis in my knees but here’s the thing only one knee hurts not the other. I did go to orthopedic surgeon who said I need knee replacement in both legs but to wait until I have completed my taper. I had a cortisone shot that took all the pain away for a week but it came roaring back. I don’t think this could be withdrawals but it does make me wonder. It’s like the muscles are a tight rubber band and I am literally stretching them to just straighten my leg. Any thoughts?

@[Fl...] I'm glad you got medical attention.  It's good you got some answers and a plan for future treatment. But I'm sorry you're in such pain.  Your description of feeling your muscles are a tight rubber band made me think about the fact that benzos are such effective muscle relaxers. People get all kinds of muscle pain during withdrawal - our muscles seem to complain when we take away the benzos.
