Customer Question
I have pain in my...
I have pain in my knee. I had arthroscopic surgery 5 years ago. The pain was the same after the surgery as before. I do not have resting pain but every step I take is painful. Level of pain is almost always at about a 5,and a little more when on my feet for long periods. Is is unusual that it does not hurt when I am off it? Is that arthritis?

No. It is common for the pain to go away when you rest the joint.
There is no way to know the cause of the pain from what you have posted....and I would not rush to blame it on arthritis.
So. What should you do?
I suggest you see the orthopedic surgeon who did your surgery five years ago and see what she has to say about your knee.
Does this make sense to you?
Don't forget to mash the positive feedback button for me...the one labeled "excellent" is the most fun to push by far ;)
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I don't go up in a puff of smoke -- I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
