Do they numb you up before the doctors remove water from the knee?

A needle aspiration is a very common method (having the fluid removed with a needle). It is normally numbed with a local anaesthetic first before it is drained. If you have ANY fears please discuss them with your doctor. Your doctor should have explained the procedure to you in the first place.
