I've been having terrible joint pain in my outer thighs so went to doctors who gave me gel that hasn't worked, so went back today to ask for heat patches on prescription as I tried them and they really helped, trouble is the doctor advised I can't have them on prescription, so I asked if there was something like them that might help, he said no just heat a towel up and wrap it around my leg, I replied that this would be impossible while working! I told him I would seek advise from someone else, I am spitting feathers, I'm sooooo angry and in so much pain, what's the matter with the doctors in this country, I thought they were supposed to help, what a joke..... Anyone else have this kind of pain? and what meds do you use to help? Please help. thank you.
