My husband has been having some swelling and pain in his knee. We have tried advil/ibuprofen/wraps/hot/cold creams and still no results. He even lost some weight.. hoping that would help. Just this morning.. he was walking down stairs, his knee 'locked' up on him (he almost rolled down those stairs) when he then walked around a bit.. there was some 'popping'... and now about an hour later, he stated that his knee all of a sudden is feeling really good!? He stated its like he never has had any pain at all. No stiffness... he was always leaning his weight on the other knee to sort of 'baby' the hurt knee. And now its feeling 'Perfect'? What may have caused this? And should he continue with creams/wraps/meds? Thank you for your time. ChristinaView Thread
