Hi, I'm new, glad to have found you.
I have arthritis, plus torn meniscus' in both knees, some minor clear out surgery in the right knee, but the left is now at the replacement stage. Goodness knows how long that will take on the NHS, so I'm trying to find adequate pain relief in the meantime. I'm active, do gym work, swimming and as much walking as I can mamage. I'm not overweight, and I eat very well, don't smoke and drink only at weekends. So far I've tied so far, over counter meds, knee supports, topical gels, pain patches, Co-codimal (which my stomach couldn't tolerate) and now Tramadol....all to no real relief!
I would be very gratefulful for any advice on the best methods of managing pain!
