In brief: Right knee pain

Hello. Have you ever tried Voltaren gel or Flector patches (diclofenac)? These treat dull, aching, throbbing pain.
Have you tried lidoderm patches or lidocaine gel? These are used for sharp, stab, burn, pins/needles type pain. These gels and patches have to be prescribed. Do you wear any type of knee supports? Sleeves, braces. This can help stabilize your knees while your left knee is healing.
