Just documenting

Oh, and my knee that was swollen and painful on thursday?  Still painful – swelling comes and goes as does the limping.  Pain is pretty much in ankle and knee now with occasional sudden jumps to hip on same side.  Ibuprofen helps some.  Staying off it doesn’t seem to help, but walking does make it worse.  I give it another week before I call the doc.  I know it is just arthritis.  No injury.  The muscles around it are starting to compensate (translate tighten and be painful) but again experience tells me that expensive xrays will send me home with prescription ibuprofen and a bill for about $300.
