  • Hi there

    I'm sorry to hear you're struggling with such bad knee pain.

    I was just wondering whether you have tried wearing a knee support when you are walking?

    You can buy them from most chemists. I wouldn't suggest wearing it all the time but it may help give you the support you need when you go out.

    Just a thought.

    Wishing you less pain and more peace

  • BlueMermaid3 , Very good advice Lu!! Peck.🐤

  • Yes I have osteoarthritis in my joints which they usually call wear and tear, there's not much they an do other than painkillers creams and maybe a joint replacements, have your Dr suggested this? I wear supports on my knees whenever I go walking as BlueMermaid says they are very helpful, have copper ones which retain the heat which is good for the joints, I also have it in my neck/ spine and wear a collar or support there too when I get a pain flare up, any heat is good. I'm afraid a physio didn't do me any good hope it will help you, I found a chiropractor better, take care

  • I think tendonitis is different to osteoarthritis which is wear and tear of the. bones.

  • I know you said you've tried creams, but did you try Volterol?

    I use that at night for my knees.

    Good luck and best wishes 😊

  • Hi leonard30

    I am so genuinely sorry to read that you are suffering in this way, and I sincerely hope that you can find some relief to this problem. I was diagnosed with ''wear and tear' in my knees many years ago, and it was a euphemism for arthritis.

    I have pasted you below the link the NHS Choices cache on this issue:

    I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck, and please take care of yourself.

    All my hopes and dreams for you
