I had similar symptoms after tkr and was diagnosed with CRPS by Physiatrist. CRPS is a nerve condition. Maybe seek second opinion.

I had a tkr one year ago May 2018. Around month 6 I started developing stinging, achy, burning feeling on knee area. I had been referred to PT where therapist attempted to deal with pain to no avail. Surgeon referred me to a Physiatrist. Saw Physiatrist and diagnosed with CRPS (Complex regional pain syndrome) a nerve condition. Had two treatments where they inject the knee with numbing agent. It has definitely made a difference as I don’t feel the degree of pain I had prior to shots. Knee not 100% but pretty close as I still have a small amount of discomfort. Seek another opinion other then surgeon as his work is done with knee replacement. Hope this helps

It’s been almost 1 year since my Tkr on right knee. I too feel tightness, phantom pain at times as though knee being strangled. No answers as to why this is so.

For me, deep achy, pins and needles, on the knee area were primary main pain symptoms. Now it’s swelling, hot feeling on knee, spontaneous piercing. My treatment consists of nerve blocks (two so far), Flector patch, cream. I’m am doing much better then when I was first diagnosed. Doctors say treating early is key. If you read others stories you will see how many have continuous pain, I’m just praying the pain doesn’t spread to other areas ,
