Kneepain

For the past 9 years I have suffered with knee pain. I went to my doctor in 2006 and now after six surgeries I am no better. The pain is horrible I can"t stand for long periods of time or I can"t sit in a straight back chair for a long period of time. The pain keeps me from getting a goodnight sleep. Also I have a hard time getting up out of bed or a chair after sleepin or sitting for any lenght of time. Sometimes I feel so angry because doctors think I just want pills. When they do prescribe something it never helps. I am tired of medicine with no relief. Also I somethings think that I am crazy because most people donot understand the pain and misery I am going through.
