HI, Being a patient of ankylosing spondylitis for 5 years, I have been partly fit for last 6 months but for last three days I am suffering from severe knee and above knee region pain. Why is it so? Can I take etoricoxib 60 mg which I quit 6 months back.

Sir, please stick to a regular exercise and active lifestyle. Medicines helps to reduce inflammation and delay progression but exercises contribute to maintenance of strength of muscles. Keep ice for pain relief.
