    I have the problem and an alternately on Percocet and Ultram. I also use Elavil at night for pain and sleep: it makes getting out of bed in the morning a whole lot easier.
    Uncomfortable yes, but manageable.

    Yes! I have since January 1st. I have been to the doc, chiroprator.
    No one seems to know what it is, they wanted me to have a ultrsound just to rule out! blood clots.
    This had started in my right knee, it was swollen up and after two days I could not put weight on it.
    Then it went to the other leg, I could not put any pressure on even my feet.
    After doing 5 days of prdnisone, robaxin, and pain meds.
    I went to get some meds at costco and felt a pop and total rip in my calve muscle, then I had a bulge protrude on my knee.
    Doc's still had not a clue!
    Day before yesterday I got totally fed up, after I could not even get in for a ultrasound.
    SO! I went to the store and purchased some D M S O.
    And so far it is helping.
    I have used it in the past for myself and the horse.
    It I have a feeling is tendonitis with a touch of bursitis.
    We will see! after I find out for sure some nasty words will go out of my mouth to the docs.
