Pinched Nerve/Muscle: Most times back pain that is sudden onset will resolve. You should use anti-inflammatory meds like ibuprofen, aleve around the clock and even tylenol (acetaminophen) to help. If this does not resolve you should see doctor for a muscle relaxant as well. If it still does not resolve, i would recommend seeing a spine specialist for a full evaluation and testing. You may need to get an MRI to see inside the back. ...Read more

More info needed...: I'm not sure what kind of knee surgery you had, but there's always the possibility of complications with any surgery. If you had a ligament repair, it's possible that ligament could have torn again. If a piece of your meniscus broke off, it could be locking your knee and preventing you from flexing it all the way. I recommend seeing the doctor that performed your surgery to get it checked out. ...Read more

Injection of cortisone or hyaluronic acid also very popular. If all else fails, then scope. ...Read more

Get it checked out: There are many other causes of joint pain besides rheumatoid arthritis. And not everyone with RA has a positive test. If this pain is persisting you need further evaluation. You may need to see a rheumatologis to find out what is causing your pain. Diagnosis of some types of arthritis takes time and repeated lab tests. ...Read more
