CRPS: I think you might experience degenerative joint disease in the knee, not complex regional pain syndrome. Complex regional pain syndrome (crps) is a form of chronic pain that usually affects extremity. Crps typically develops after an injury, surgery, but the pain is out of proportion to the severity of the initial injury.
