My knees started acting up in the winter they would just be stiff and then they would just swell up and couldn't walk for a day or two then get better then my right knee got a big growth on it , it was hard as bone had it crated and des was just going to watch it and never really told me what it was and told me to take naproxen sodium. This upset my stomach to no end Dr got me Vimvo thru Astra zenica for a year and they stopped just suffered thru it tried everything to help but. Knees just became deformed looking and painful. Cannot get in and out of bathtub ,have to watch where I sit ,have to push or pull my body up because I can't get my legs under me to lift me up. Now the longer I am on them the more the hurt and less movement from them and was told needed knee replacement but had no insurance. Finally got some insurance and had cortisone shots which helped for a short period of time but also been diagnosed with cancer so knee replacement is on hold
