For the last couple of weeks I have been getting a new, very strange sensation in my worst knee. This is apart from the OA pain and I don't know what to make of it. At times, the area to the left of my right kneecap, where it's always a bit swollen and spongy anyway, suddenly feels icey-cold and sort of wet. Like someone has placed a freezing cold wet cloth on there. A few times I've actually had to check to make sure my leg isn't actually leaking in that area, which of course, it isn't.
It's a really weird sensation and keeps happening, day and night.
Has anyone ever experienced this before?
My right knee is getting more painful anyway, so I'm wondering is this cold/wet sensation associated with the OA, or something to do with nerves in that area? Could it stem from the Arthroscopy I had in February?
Should I mention it to my GP?
Does anyone have any ideas what this is about?
Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans.
