Is the third day the worse for pain when you have a hurt knee? Even the painkillers are not working and I am afraid to take the recommended dosage because I will fall asleep. I did that the first night I had them and I felt like I was drugged out. Literally felt sick.

I'm not a doctor, but I know that when I've had an injury like that the pain is usually worse after a couple of days. It's almost like your body is still in shock for the first couple of days and then it says "oh yeah, I'm supposed to be hurting" and it decides to hurt. So I understand what you are saying.

I'm so sorry it's bothering you so much. If you don't have anything going on, I'd say take the pain killers and just sleep the day away if you can!!

I took half of the painkillers thinking that they wouldn't make me oozing feeling but I was wrong. I can't go to sleep because the girls are awake. David is out of fishing again.

When I broke my kneecap it didn't hurt for the first few days. I think it was because everything else hurt so baadly. It's hard when your knee hurts, because you use it so much. Even going to the bathroom was a huge ordeal. I hope you get some relief soon.

hmmm I'm not a doctor either but from my own experience I've had injuries that seemed worse a couple days later too

try not to overdose on the painkillers ... did you get any anti-inflammatory rubs prescribed?

He has me on an anti-inflammatory medication before this happen. That probably helped with the swelling in the beginning. That and the cold ice packs.

Is it getting any better now??

(((HUGS))) I hope they are feeling better by now :confused:

It is a little better but still sore. If I stay off of it the pain is less. I think I have tried to do too much in the last couple of days. I am taking it easy today.
