Acute Pseudo Locked Knee At Night?

Acute Pseudo Locked Knee At Night?

Seriously, WTH? It's been happening on and off for the last two years, not too often, thank god, but damn. I'll just wake up in severe pain, crying out, and my knee is locked up, won't move.

I am so sorry to hear this. It's sounds painful and frightening. I have on going knee problems with pain, popping and sometimes a jolt, but I have not had this. I hope your rheumatologist can help you!
