What can I take to offset severe quad pain after exercise that strikes at night. Pain pills do nothing for muscle pain. I had TKR three weeks ago and the therapy is tough but worse is the pain that strikes at night about an hour after going to bed. I am awake now because of the pain, I remembered tonic water might help but need to know. I have not had sleep in 3 days and my blood pressure is up 30 points due to the pain.

Youre gonna have to give it a little time. Sleep is a problem at first, 3 weeks is very fresh. Dr took my pills after only days, said ibuprofen was the answer, 2 every 4 hours is not too much. Sleep whenever you can get it, my Lazyboy was my bff mainly 'cause I could stay in one position without squirming around. Comfort in bed is late in yer recovery (still wakes me), Im sorry to say. ice baby ice ! Work hard !

I'm 16 weeks in and although I'm not fully recovered, I can say that the PT and yer work is directly proportional to a full recovery.

Call your doctor and physical therapist.

If I were you I would ask my doctor for a sleeping pill, such as ambien. It is not addicting and works well.
