I finished my 5th Supartz injection about a month ago. In my left leg I had signs of bursitis (didn't know what it was then) just below my knee and it got much worse after the Supartz. After my last injection, I started to feel the bursitis like pain in the right leg. It is now extremely painful and no OTC can help. I have also tried Meloxicam and Tramidol (which my Primary Care doctor had given me for the arthritis before I had the Supartz (given by the rhemutologist) I've tried Voltarin on the spot also.
I am wondering if perhaps the supartz was injected in the wrong place? Is this possible?
I'm going to see my orthopedist this week and will ask him but wanted to be armed with some info first. (The rhemotologist did the Supartz, not the ortho)
