Knee pain when trying to get up and walk after sitting for a long time

Posted by: Koustuve Chatterjee

My age is 45yrs,wt-84kg, height-159cm, male.Had left knee hit injury with a suitcase on the way 5yrs ago.The the inner (front)side of the left knee has the pain particularity when trying to get up from natures call(squatting position) in the morning or when trying to get up and walk after sitting for a long time from chair and after walking for about 100m or so the pain reduces, but till then the pain is tremendous. The pain aggravates during winter. mild pain is also there when pressing with finger tips at the spot. Please prescribe medicine.


You can see if the remedy rhus tox. matches your symptoms, and if so, you may consider a low potency–a 6C or 30C dose. If that doesn’t help relatively soon, then you may need another injury remedy, such as ruta graveolens, or even arnica montana.

  • I am 65 years old. My right-knee is painful. This is worst while use of unstairs. Early morning, whole body dull, weak, difficulty in getting up from bed, walks slowly for about 100-200 steps & then feel better.

    While rest, the knee does not cause any pain but movement causes pain. After slow movement of about 10-15 minutes, pain gets relieved.

    No thrust at all. I would remain comfortable without water for even 10-15 days. But deliberately I drink about 2-3 Liters of water everyday.

    Great desire of sweet food or even fruits.

    Please suggest suitable medication of homoeopathy.
