Gary - Yes, it seems that something got 'turned on' after the Accutane was stopped. I've been off it for 2 1/2 years now and still notice the affects. As for my elbows, I can lay them on the desk as I type, but leaning on them and putting pressure doesn't feel good, as well as for my knees. I doubt this will ever change or anything can be done about it..damage done. I am stiffer than ever if I sit in one position. It's kind of scary because if I sit Indian Style for even 20 minutes and try and get up - I'm sort of hunched over for a minute until my body can straighten itself out.
This is why I sugest that people don't use Accutane because while on it, I was fine, so I kept on going. Near the end of using it it is when the problems started and have continued. I can deal with it now, but worry about the future.
If you fine a solution, post about it, but I'm not sure what could be done once the bones have been changed.
