Knee Pain Postpartum

Did anyone ever experience knee pain postpartum? My friend is 2 weeks postpartum and has been having a lot of unusual pain, especially when walking up and down stairs. She also had preeclampsia during her pregnancy. Is this pain related to the pregnancy or something else?

  • She should try Glucosamine HCL, and I also use a pain cream with tea tree oil in it, works great.

  • I had knee pain quite a bit after I had my son. But a lot of it had to do with the torn cartilage in my knee. If you were to have say, arthritis in your joints, the weight gain will definitely cause problems.
