Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
Are you asking how it is treated?
Are you there?
Pseudogout is treated with anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen and indomethcin
Sometimes, a drug called colchicine is used, but not as often
My knees don't ache, but I have trouble bending over and going down stairs.
You mean they are stiff?
Ive have had both knees injected to with draw the fluid and had crystals in the fluid.
they are stiff
I see, then you will still benefit from an anti-inflammatory drug, the stiffness is from inflammation
Will I get full use of the legs? I have old football injuries to both legs. What
You should have full use if it is controlled with the medication, it really helps
exercises should I do to strengthen the knees?
You should not do anything like that for now, it will likely make it worse, you need to get the inflammation down before trying that
You're welcome,is there anything else you would like to ask on this topic?
