Q.

Kroniese styfheid en pyn in my bene

Vir die laaste 2 jaar het ek kroniese spier styfheid en pyn in my bene maar aan die voorkant van my bene. Ek moet stadig loop omdat elke tree pynlik is. In die nagte word ek gedurig wakker van pyn as ek omdraai. As ek 'n bietjie stap word my voete kloppend seer sodat ek voel ek kannie meer nie. (Ek is 54 jaar oud) Ek drink spierverslappers wat my bene effens help maar die pyn is konstant. Ek het geen pyn in my gewrigte nie.

It is possible that you have bursitis around the knee and you may benefit from cortisone injection at the site.

You should see a rheumatologist
