I've been wearing 100 denier tights to work and so far they have managed to keep my feet and in particular my knees warm - so far. At work I was fine, but when I boarded the bus to come home today from work I had an awareness that my knees were beginning to feel the cold. The bus was cold and it took a while before I felt warm .
I put the heating on as soon as I got in and now the awareness has turned into a dull ache. I still do not need to take pain relief at this point. But don't understand why they have progressed to acheing as I am in warmth? I know its due to the weather, as the extremes are one of my triggers. But I am inside now so I shouldn't be getting worse on the ache front? They are aslo becomeing ratchety when I bend and straigthen them and I am having trouble keeping them warm indoors to.
What do others (you) do to keep your knees warm? I am going to try anica gel on them when I come out of my bath this evening to see if this helps with the aches in them.
