I have had knee replacement surgery Four years ago my knee

Customer Question

I have had knee replacement surgery Four years ago my knee is cramping in the upper thigh area and below calf muscle. Sometimes the kneecap has a stinging sensation and also prone to ache if I'm lifting a lot of doing stairs should this be happening. I've
also had both ankles broken and one aches at night the other has a burning sensation. I'm on jurnista for my back had spinal fusion 7 years ago. Suffer from arthritis and having a lot of stress on top. Should I see my original knee surgeon my doctor seems
to put everything down to arthritis. I also suffer with sore mouth and burning tongue. I'm 56

do you take any medications?
Expert:  DocPhilMD replied 2 years ago.
I think this is coming from your low back.
I would see a different orthopaedic doctor.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It's very low but I've had s1 and l5 fused so I'm assuming that's why it's lower I'm just concerned I have cramps in my legs most nights and burning in my feet. Also on the scar where I had knee replacement there is what appears like a bruise but it's a strange place to get a bruise and it's been there for awhile. My knee also aches again I'm on jurnista from my back and anti depressants I also have over the past 8months had stress pretty bad. Going through a custody case for my grandson whose mother is an addict.

I'm very sorry to hear about your grandson. That sounds difficult
In your case, I would see another surgeon
