I posted before but my post was deleted.
I've got O/A in my knees,spine, shoulders,wrists,fingers and hips.
I was originally on vioxx and had to give up due to side effects, I have tried to persevere with strong
painkillers but whilst the pain is helped in most part
the pain in my right knee is unbearable and making me depressed.
I tried to go shopping with my children yesterday and the pain became so bad that i could not put my right foot to the ground and had no power to walk.
I use a walking aid but no one will do anything about my knee, my doc will not replace the joint because he considers that i am still young at forty!!!!!!!!!.
I've also tried infra-red heat massage, please I would
love to hear from anyone in a similar position to myself.
My doc is keeping me going on physio/painkillers but it
is not helping.
