I'm interested in this.
I had surgery for a crushing injury to my left foot around 3 years ago. At the time, I was warned that down the line I may develop arthritis as a result of the trauma.
Sure enough, I started to get pain in the knee three months ago, and that has now been diagnosed as osteoarthritis. I get quite a bit of pain if I have a busy day walking around, and at the moment I have been advised that the best painkiller in my case is paracetamol.I'm concerned about the effects of long-term paracetamol use and I'm searching for other ways to manage the condition.
I've seen all kinds of claims for all kinds of products, but I don't know what to try. My instinctive reaction is to think that if there was something good out there my GP(who is fairly young, and very much on the ball) would know about it.
